Why Valur Blomsterberg chose Iceland

It is a privilege to live on a Ranch with the horses in an unspoiled nature, still so close to the capital for all necessities and work.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. Spacious and luxurious. Very rare view in all directions

This is a stunning property

  • 5 of 5

The photos shown do not do justice to this beautiful home. It is very comfortable, all the luxuries, beautiful views, comfortable beds, huge kitchen, plenty of room to spread out.

The owner is very easy to work with. Very customer service oriented. We wish everyone were as warm and hospitable as our host. If we needed anything at all our host moved heaven and earth to make it happen.

If you want to feel special, you need to come here.

Convenient to all day trips. We stayed 6 nights and due to our experience here we extended our stay in Iceland from 9 nights to 16.

We came to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and we were treated to a show in the sky two nights in a row. Great spot for viewing the night sky. Horses are beautiful too and ever present.

GREAT JOB! If we come back to Iceland we will stay here.

Awesome house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. We are a family of seven of all ages-grandparents, parents and kids. We had a wonderful stay here. The house is gorgeous and has every amenity one could want. We loved the music system and the large kitchen. The bonus were the horses on the adjoining properties-the kids were out for hours with them! Loved the beautiful location. Would definitely recommend this house.

Beautiful setting and an amazing owner!

  • 5 of 5

The house and its surroundings were phenomenal. The horses in the back were beautiful and so friendly (just offer them some bread!) We truly enjoyed our visit to Iceland, and staying at Valur's house made it all that more memorable. We could not have asked for better amenities or for a more hospitable host. Valur, the owner, went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. The location was fantastic for visiting the Golden Circle. Our kids enjoyed the Selfoss pool as well. We highly recommend this property!

Indeed luxury and lovely villa.

  • 5 of 5

At arrival we were all astonished by the inside modern look of the house. Indeed there is a quality of both exterieror and interior materials. We were a family of nine, and we all rated the house as being top nice. The kitchen is a trill to work in, the beds are good, nice seperate theater room, need toilets, good sound system, classy fireplace and a lot of natural light fills the house. The scenary of the house is charming and isolated, yet close to many tourist attractions. Overall the house met our expectations and was very clean. Although we did not meet the owner Valur, he was very polite and friendly to communicate with on the phone. We can highly recommend this house to everyone.

Genuine Icelandic Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We where four Young couples staying in this amazing house in the end of Our Iceland vacation. Our host Valur met us at arrival and was very service minded when showing us around to our new home for the next days.

The house was perfectly located in a tranquil field just a short distance from Selfoss city centre and short distances to many of South Icelands amazing sites. From the living room we could see the mountains and glaciers of Eyafjallajökul and Hekla. The Kitchen was very well equiped. The house had Three double beds, one bunk bed which even was suitable for grown-ups and two bathrooms which worked out perfect for our company.

I would very well recomend Valur as a host and Villa Hvitholt as the Place to stay during Your visit in Iceland
