About Elin and Borkur

We are two lawyers, parents of 4 children, but the family lives in Reykjavík where we both work. We love this beautiful place and look forward to welcome you to our house.

Elin and Borkur purchased this Villa in 2016

Why Elin and Borkur chose Southern Region

We choose this location because of the short distance to Reykjavík and all the other attractions in the surrounding neighbourhood. This house is so beautiful and is located on the riverbank of Hvítá.

What makes this Villa unique

The river view and the style of the house. We find our house perfect because it´s spacious with many bedrooms and a large living room with open kitchen.

It is located close to many of the big sites in Iceland. The kitchen was well stocked and the kids especially loved the hot tub. We highly recommend this house.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Best regards

                                                                  Börkur & Elín

                                                                  Lovely house with amazing views

                                                                  Chris A.

                                                                  Excellent house with amazing views overlooking the river. Great kitchen and living area. Perfect for a large group to eat. Thank you.

                                                                  Fabulous house in a stunning location

                                                                  Paul K.

                                                                  The house is everything it promises to be from the description above. It is spacious, lovely and warm against Icelandic autumn. The hot tub is nice, the beds are comfy and the kitchen is well equipped. It was very clean, comfortable and well sound proofed (we had one night of heavy wind and rain which you could barely hear - the huge flocks of birds in the river below were surprisingly loud too!).

                                                                  The "river view" description really doesn't do the location justice - you are on a ridge above the river and will enjoy views over huge distances all the way to snow capped peaks in the distance. The sun rises spectacularly in front of you and, at night, you can watch the Northern Lights.

                                                                  A great location for touring too - just outside Skálholt, half an hour from Gulfoss and Geysir, 45 minutes from Þingvellir and an hour and a half from Reykjavik or the South Coast sights near Sólheimajökull.

                                                                  Beautiful, spacious home with lovely views and helpful owners

                                                                  Nikhil D.

                                                                  We were a family of 10 in Iceland for a week-long family reunion, and we are happy to say that everything about the home and surrounding area lived up to our expectations. The property itself was exactly as it appeared in the photos, with four comfortable bedrooms and a large open living room area. The kitchen was spacious and fully stocked, and very helpful for breakfasts and dinners for our large family. We also loved using the the grill, hot tub and outside patio area in the evenings. Regarding the surrounding area, the pictures truly do not do the land justice - the geography is spectacular with a river in the backyard (and a natural hot spring only a short walk downstream!), views of nearby mountains, and also the volcano Hekla in the distance. Right in front of the house is a quaint small horse farm where you can see animals grazing during the day. The location worked great for us, as it was very convenient for easter attractions on the golden circle, and only a ~90 min drive back to Reykjavik / Keflavik for other attractions by those cities. We also managed to do a day trip to Vatnajökull national park and Vik. It was also nice to have such a relatively quiet area to go home to each night, and with less light pollution to see the stars. On our last night in mid-August, we were extremely lucky to catch an early glimpse of the Northern Lights. The owners Borkur and Elin were very helpful with many of the logistical aspects of our trip, including directions, advice on groceries and food, and tips on what to see near the house. We would highly recommend the home for people looking to stay outside of the city and experience the suburban side of Iceland.

                                                                  Well equipped modern home with amazing views and location

                                                                  Carla L.

                                                                  Our stay at this property was perfect. The house was well equipped and very clean. The open floorplan for kitchen, dinning and living room with beautiful views was always a pleasure to come back to after a day out sightseeing. Would love to come back in Winter and experience the house surrounded by snow.

                                                                  Even Better Than Expected!

                                                                  Jan D.

                                                                  This is a clean, modern home in a beautiful setting with an amazing view of a peaceful river. Each of the 4 bedrooms has comfortable beds and new, down comforters. The kitchen is well equipped with appliances and cookware, and there is plenty of refrigerator space. The clean, new hot tub was heated and ready to use upon our arrival. The owners, Borkur and Elin, responded quickly to emails and were very helpful in answering our questions about local places to visit, etc., as was Herald who helped us after we arrived. We've rented homes in many countries, and this one ranks among the top. We hope to return, and highly recommend it!
