Guestbook comments from the owner


I stayed in this totally "wow" place during the summer of 2012. It is a beautiful property in the Icelandic country side with great views of mountains from all windows and glass doors. The house is new, extremely well equipped and clean. It is also well heated with hot water from the ground which is important in Iceland because it can be cold up there! It does not have a swimming pool (nobody has) but it has a "hot tub" (few houses do) which is like a big jacuzzi built into the deck which is heated with hot water from the ground. I slid into this "hot tub" or "hot pot" as I think it is called locally every day rain or shine and I can highly recommend it.

The area is wonderful with easy drive to many famous and historical sites like Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingveillir. There is also a small town with a well stocked supermarket not too far away.

It was truly a magical place so a week simply flew by. The only minus was my own poor planning not booking for at least two weeks.

I would certainly recommend this place.

The owners were also very welcoming and helpful.

Excellent 1 week stay in the South of Iceland

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week in August '15. It was an excellent stay with a warm welcome and a house offering a nice location to discover part of Iceland closed to Selfoss.

We enjoyed the house and his calm location. It is very pleasant, convenient and clean. The house is full of light, very well equipped and provide the possibility to enjoy relaxing time in the outside spa using hot pipe water.

We highly recommend this rental.

Charmante maison en pleine nature.

  • 5 of 5

Si vous désirez visiter le sud de l'Islande, c'est la maison Idéale.

Nous étions 5, deux couples d'amis et un bébé de 1 an. Kjartan nous a tout d'abord accueilli très chaleureusement en nous présentant toute sa très jolie maison, décorée avec goût, en plein milieu de la nature.

Il a même mis à notre disposition un lit bébé ainsi qu'une chaise, de façon à pouvoir venir sans tout se trimballer de la maison :D

Il y a également un Hot Pot, sorte de jacuzzi sans bulle, très agréable après les longues journées de découvertes.

Niveau situation, c'est un point centrale pour visiter toutes les merveilles du Sud. Nous avons même pu sans difficultés (à condition d'avoir un 4x4) visiter le Landmannalaugar qui est une lieu à couper le souffle.

Et pour les plus téméraire, l'aller retour à Jokulsarlon dans la journée est tout à fait réalisable ! Nous l'avons fait et n'avons vraiment pas regretter !

Reykjavik n'est qu'a 1 heure.

Le seul bémol est de devoir partir !

Encore merci pour ce lieu magnifique !

The Best Country Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the perfect Icelandic week in this charming house. It is about an hour away from Reykjavik and miles away from our everyday. The house is situated "away from it all" (think down a gravel road) in a summer home community. It is very clean and bright. We had 3 adults and 1 child, so the 3 small bedrooms were perfect. We cooked two meals a day at the house and found the kitchen fully equipped. The hot pot/hot tub was a huge plus at the end of a long day of touring and a welcome treat.

The location was perfect for day trips - everything was a bit of a drive away, but it was all reasonable (and super easy!). We were in the middle of the golden circle, had easy access to the south coast and could enjoy Reykjavik.

The owners are incredibly thoughtful and accommodating - from letting us check in early and providing us breakfast on our first day, to pointing out all toys for our little one, and proving travel tips. We highly recommend this place.

Peaceful house in wondeful Iceland

  • 4 of 5

My wife and myself had a great time in the house. It is clean, well maintained and is peacefully located on 90 minutes from Reykjavik. Thingvellir , Geysir and Sulfoss are very close to the house. We would recommend the house to everyone without hesitation. The owner is very friendly and helpful.

Thank you.

Idyllic peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

This summer house was really well equipped and had the most wonderful location. We were far enough away from it all to have total peace and close enough to be able get to restaurants and shops when we needed. All the big sights on the golden circle were within easy reach. Reykavik and the Blue Lagoon a couple of hours drive.

The wifi was great for keeping track of the activity at Bárðarbunga and the hot pot was well used by the whole family throughout our stay. We can’t wait to come back!

Kjartan could not have been more welcoming. Thank you.

Great House & Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly as advertised and in excellent condition. While I am not a "hot tub person", the geothermal heated one at this house in Iceland is quite enjoyable. All bed rooms have room darkening shades that really help block the 3 AM full Iceland sun...

When traveling to the property for the 1st time, be sure to go a short way down the unpaved road...

The location is Ideal for exploring south Iceland including Pingvellir, Gullfoss & Vik areas. I was able to get all the way to the east end of the country with one night in a hotel.

The town of Selfoss is very close and has all the amenities. I recommend the Kaffi Krús restaurant including eat in (trout is excellent), take out pizza on your way back to the house is great for those long days of sight seeing.
