About Erlingur Örn Hafsteinsson

We, the owners, are two friends who met while studying at the Reykjavík University. We are Erlingur Örn Hafsteinsson and Ingvar Þór Gylfason. Erlingur is from Selfoss and Ingvar from Reykjavík. We were both studying engineering at the Reykjavík University.

In 2013, Ingvar called Erlingur and asked him 'hey wanna build a cabin?' and Erlingur replied:'Sure, why not?' and there it began. Just three weeks later we had bought a land at a great location in the south part of Iceland. As soon as we bought the land they drove up there every weekend with shovels and started digging around in the land, making streams to make the land even more beautiful. Suddenly after several weeks of digging you could hear the streams which is really relaxing.

On the 17th of june 2014, which is Iceland's Independence day, we started building the cabin. it was finished in february 2015.

Erlingur Örn Hafsteinsson purchased this cabin in 2014

Beautiful stunning home with great location. The house itself was absolutely beautiful- well thought out floor plan with creature comforts like a projector for cozy nights, great kitchen for cooking, and thoughtful family friendly necessities for our toddler: high chair, pack and play, and even a stuffed animal to play with. The jacuzzi was great. We had a the opportunity to see the northern lights! Our toddler was in awe. The location is great to the Golden circle but I highly recommend doing things off the beaten path like the secret lagoon, Fontana Laugarvatan (not so off beaten path but great too), hikes to waterfalls and hot springs. As a family, we also enjoyed Selfoss community swimming pool which had geothermal pools and water slides and kid toys. Selfoss is great for grocery shopping - kronan and bonus. We had burgers and fries and ice cream at Efstidalur after Fontana Laugarvatan- a nice treat!

Most of all, we appreciated the warm welcome from Erlingur- our host. Communication with him was great- responsive and had great recommendations. We had a phenomenal time and hope to come back in a couple of years from now. Thanks Erlingur!!

Clean, modern and welcoming in great location!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the modern and spacious layout of the cabin. It really feels very private and luxurious and provided the perfect base to end our Iceland trip. The hot tub on the deck is wonderful and is a great way to relax after a busy day exploring the area. All the key sights are within a reasonable drive of the property and we even had a rest day in the cabin which was so peaceful and relaxing. All the facilities worked perfectly and we were provided with a very comprehensive information pack before our trip so we could plan our stay. I would certainly recommend this cabin to friends and family and it would be my first choice on any future trip to Iceland.

Amazing location for our first trip to Iceland!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was amazing, just like home from home. Loved the movie screen in the lounge and of course the hot tub was amazing!! Was so nice and warm in the cabin all the time too, which was great after the cold weather we experienced. Would definately return.

Wonderful and stunning cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is outstanding in every way: very clean, well equipped, beautifully designed and tastefully decorated. The views surrounding the cabin are amazing and the cabin was like a home away from home. My partner and I had the most amazing time watching films on the projector, relaxing in the hot tub and watching the breath taking northern lights from the porch (THREE TIMES!).

Both hosts, Erlingur and Ingvar were very kind and they have thought of everything any guest would ever need! We even received a text on our second night from Erlingur to alert us of the northern lights! Very thoughtful and caring, we are thankful for their hospitality.

Only tip is that a rental car is needed to reach the cabin but it is well worth it as there are so many landmarks nearby the cabin that you don't want to miss!

If you do book the cabin, I wish you a wonderful break and recommend you visit: Selfoss, Hella, Cave Leidarendi tour, Gulfoss Waterfalls, Gulfoss Geysir, Kerid Crater and Seljalandsfoss Waterfalls.
