Why Elisabet chose Iceland

Seeking a quiet and nice home away from home we started building this house in 2008, finishing it more or less this year. We have enjoyed our stays in the house and it has lived up to expectations.

What makes this villa unique

There is a panoramic view from the living room, closest is a moss field and some rocks and further away a mountain and we can see the ocean in the distance. From the front door one can see Burfell, a mountain that is a signiture for the region and, which can be seen from far away. Thingvellir, the parliament site of old, which is a wonderful national park, is only about 30 minutes drive from the house. There are 3 golf courses close by and an outdoor swimming pool.

Wonderful views and lovely house

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location with wonderful 360 views of the hills and very peaceful. The pictures on the website did not fully portray how nice the house is and we enjoyed the light airy nature of the house.

It was clean, well appointed and very comfortable.

Finally Elisabet the owner went to no end of trouble to help us and we would definitely recommend the property.

Beautiful home, great base from which to explore

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed in this lovely home for a week in July. The house is new and very comfortable. The owner was very kind, even though he had to wait hours for us to arrive due to a late plane and long line at the car rental.

The location provides a great base from which to explore. Iceland is large, so we did spend a lot of time driving but we found the home conveniently placed to see sights such as geysir, Glufloss, Thingvellir, and even a day trip and hike in Landmannalauger. We miss being there already and would love to return one day!
