About Elin and Borkur

We are two lawyers, parents of 4 children, but the family lives in Reykjavík where we both work. The house is our second home and we´ve spent a lot of time in it for many years. We love this beautiful place and look forward to welcoming you to our house

Elin and Borkur purchased this House in 2008

Why Elin and Borkur chose Southern Region

We wanted to have a nice summer house where we could relax with our children both summer and winter. We choose this location because of the short distance to Reykjavík and all the other attractions in the surrounding neighbourhood.

What makes this House unique

We find our house perfect because it´s spacious with many bedrooms and a large living room with open kitchen. Unique garden with hot tub and large garage with many activities all year round. Magnificent location.

                                                              We spent 3 nights with extended family touring the area and enjoying the fact that we had a beautiful and comfortable place to finish the day over dinner. We had 8 adults but could have had 10 comfortably. The owners are friendly and attentive. We recommend this property for anyone's Iceland visit.

                                                              Amazing house - perfect trip!

                                                              We stayed for three nights - large group (four couples and four children ages 2-10). It was perfect for our group. Plenty of space, comfy living area to lounge, huge table for big group dinners, great outdoor space with soccer goal, trampoline, and dining area. Hot tub was a big plus! Beds were comfy and showers were hot. Elin and Borkur were amazing hosts. Proximity was great for Golden Circle attractions. We'd definitely come back again!

                                                              First class home in great location.

                                                              Had a great week staying in this house with family to celebrate my birthday.

                                                              House is perfectly situated for the Golden circle and touring the South of Iceland.

                                                              Take the time to travel to Vik and the black beach, amazing!

                                                              House has everything you need including a big hit with the younger ones, a bean to cup coffee machine! It was well used.

                                                              A big thank you to Elen & Borkur for their help and advice in planning this trip.

                                                              Shopping is good in Selfoss, easy to get to and easy to navigate, about 20 mins away.

                                                              The young ones enjoyed the pizza from Café Mika! about 10 mins away.

                                                              The one experience we all enjoyed was sitting in the amazing hot tub with snow falling down on our heads!!

                                                              I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely home for a holiday in the South of Iceland, enjoy!!

                                                              Perfect House Perfect Owners

                                                              Elin, Borkur and family are the best home owners we have ever rented from. They are incredibly thoughtful and provide little basics that make your stay so nice, and easy like: coffee, shampoo, towels. This in addition to a beautiful house with loads to do in the game room, a great soak hot tub outside, always warm heating, massive eating area big enough for everyone, great kitchen, big shared common space and someone who lives locally to help should you need it made for a smooth stay.

                                                              We were doing a bit of a whirlwind trip with a big group. We had a few extra small children and they provided air mattresses and bedding that were all set up when we arrived. Not only that but we were celebrating a milestone birthday and Elin emailed with me in advance of our trip with tips on a bakery, grocery stores - so when we arrived we were well equipped to just enjoy our trip.

                                                              It was so nice to have a great house and such generous owners who didn't mind answering questions and helping to make our celebratory trip really special.

                                                              I highly recommend renting this house. Oh and the location is right in the middle of all the main attractions so that is perfect too.

                                                              Now if only Elin and Borkur could guarantee the Northern Lights!!

                                                              Thanks for a great stay.
