About Kristín

I was born in Reykjavík and have always live in the South Iceland. The house has been the vacation home for the family since we bought the land and built the house.

Kristín purchased this house in 2007

Why Kristín chose Iceland

H40-house offers great recreation in beautiful, quiet surroundings. The location is perfect for multiple adventures. It is located in the middle of the golden circle area, near many coolest attractions. The Hot tub is a perfect way to relax, watch the sun set, the stars or northern lights.

What makes this house unique

The landscape is stunning where the house is located in the rural part of south Iceland. If you are looking for a relaxing and comfortable break in home with all the facilities this is definitely the place to be.

Comfortable, Clean and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The amenities, scale and openness of this home is perfect for two couples and I believe suited nicely for couples with children also. This combined with the convenient location made our stay most enjoyable. I strongly recommend that you consider this home. The owners are helpful when needed and not intrusive which our group appreciates greatly. The grocery store in Selfoss is close by and open 24 hours. The kitchen is nicely appointed and the home offers a degree of luxury that you will enjoy after long days of exploration. I found the large windows, outdoor decking and hot pot particularly refreshing.

Successful first trip to Iceland!

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing! It was exactly what we needed for our first trip to Iceland. It was wonderful meeting the home owners on the first day and they made everything easy for the rest of the week. I haven't stopped telling everyone at home how great everything was. We will absolutely be back!

Wir haben in diesem Haus 2 wundervolle Wochen zu viert verbracht. Die Lage ist ideal als Ausgangspunkt für viele tolle Ausflüge. Das Haus selbst und die Ausstattung sind nahezu perfekt. Abends nach den tollen Eindrücken vom Land im Hot Pot sitzen... ich darf gar nicht daran denken, sonst drehe ich auf dem Absatz rum und renne zurück :-). Danke an Valli und Kristin für die freundschaftliche Rundumbetreuung .

Will come back"

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home in a great location!! We stayed in this home for a week in April. We enjoyed many of the amazing sights that are so easily accessible from this location. The Icelandic weather was crazy and it was so wonderful to come back and relax in the hot tub.

The owners were so helpful and quick to answer any questions that we had. Would completely suggest this home to anyone visiting southern Iceland!

This home was just what we and one other couple were looking for in the middle of January to use as a home base to explore Iceland a little. The kitchen is well-equiped - the only thing we needed was a cheese grater so we left one behind for the next renters! It was lovely to have use of the "hot pot", although directions in English might be advisable - neither our U.S. or German speakers could quite figure it out but Kristín was readily available by phone to answer our questions. I would highly recommend this place, in fact we may go again since the weather didn't cooperate and we never saw the northern lights!!

Beautiful, but not isolated. Modern, warm & cosy.

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as it looks on the photos; spotlessly clean, warm, and very comfortable. It also had excellent wi-fi.

The property feels secluded even though it located near enough to the main road to Pingvellir to be handy to get around. We found it a perfect location for exploring the golden circle and the South coast towards Vik.

H40 / Áshamar house is located only one hour from the capital Reykjavík and in the heart of the Golden Circle area. Þingvellir / Thingvellir the National Park is only 15 minutes by car. The famous Geysir and Gullfoss are about an hour drive.

There are great walking trails all around, including the path in the hills of Hveragerði, where you can have a bath in the warm water is 20 minutes drive.

The Mountain Búrfell is a nice walk and on the top is a lake where you can go fishing trout. Also you can go trout fishing in the nearest lakes, Villingavatn and Thingvallavatn. In the river Ölfusá and Sog you can go salmon fishing.

The location of the house is the perfect place to visit well known attractions and make day tours. Exploring the dramatic landscape all around, such as the waterfalls, Reykjafoss in Hveragerði, Skógarfoss and Seljalandsfoss. Glaciers like the volcano Eyjafjallajökull is an hour drive. Further are Mýrdalsjökull and Vatnajökull.

Jökulsárlón, where you can go sailing around the icebergs in a boat.

Selfoss is the nearest town with all with all the grocery stores needed, only 10 minutes away. The small villages Stokseyri and Eyrabakki are worth visiting. If you want to have a nice meal in restaurants there are few nearby. Our favorites are the resturant Varmá in Hveragerði, Humarhúsið in Stokkseyri and Rauða húsið in Eyrabakki. Many other nice attractions like Riding centers e.g. Sólhestar 10 minutes and Eldhestar 20 minutes drive.
