About Ingvar Thor Gylfason

Erlingur & Ingvar started their business in 20th of September 2013 when they bought their first land in Grimsnes, south of Iceland. They used up their savings for the down payment and got a loan to pay the rest. They started planting treas and digging for streams. On 17th of June 2014 they received their first shipment of material for building a cabin. They worked very hard, along side their jobs as engineers in Reykjavik, for 9 months building this cabin.

On 10th of March 2015 the first guests arrived to the cabin. Two couples from India. Since then the cabin has more or less been rented out. We are grateful to be a part of people's vacation and to participate in people experiencing comfort and memories.

Since then they have bought another land, two apartments in Reykjavik and are heading strong into 2017 to add more properties.

Erlingur & Ingvar want their customers to experience the most comfort in their properties. That memories are created that will last a life time. Renting out a property is not just about selling a bed each night, it is about selling people the best vacation experience they have ever lived.

Luxury cabin in great location

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is really lovely and a really good location for a base

We had a brilliant time visiting the local sites Geysir, Gullfoss waterfall, the secret lagoon, thinglevir National Park and also used the supermarket and restaurants in Selfoss

The cabin was such a great place to come back to with the hot tub and cinema screen as well as a really well organised kitchen

Thank you for our stay

We stayed at Versalir Cabin for our honeymoon to Iceland. Everything was a dream! The house was clean, comfortable, secluded, and close to all of the Golden Circle attractions. Erlingur and Ingvar were so accommodating with check in time and the cabin manual was an excellent resources to all of the appliances in the house. The hot tub was an added bonus, and we were lucky enough to catch the northern lights while soaking! It was magical. The kitchen was great to cook nightly dinners and the fireplace made everything that much more enjoyable. The TV projector and movie selection were a great way to end the days. The highlight of our trip was our time spent at Versalir Cabin!

Great cabin in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin with everything you would need for your stay. We never meet the owners but they we're very helpful when we had to contact them. Great location for the golden circle and many more beautiful places to visit. We were lucky enough to see the northern lights on our last evening at the cabin we managed to get some fantastic photo's. We can't wait to come back and explore more of iceland we could not recommend it enough ☺

Totally cozy and home from home

  • 5 of 5

As we have described in the visitors book, this cabin exceeded expectations in every way ... warm and cozy, we loved the log burner, projector and hot tub and it's proximity to all the natural sites of the golden circle, we completely relaxed having spent four nights there in October. The owners have thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay. It was great to meet Erlingur in Reykjavik when we stayed at the city apartment also highly recommended. Strongly recommend this cabin to all.

Awesome place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Versalir cabin. The home is in the perfect location--far enough away to feel like you are away from other people, but close enough to access all of the amazing sites on the golden triangle. The home is comfortable, clean and well-appointed. Our family of five had a great time sitting in the hot tub after a log day of adventuring. The pull-out couch was comfortable and the bedrooms were perfect. Cooking was easy in the kitchen. We will treasure our time at Versalir Cabin.
