Why Jacob Simundsson chose Southern Region

This is a large 2-Story Canadian Cedar wood Log House consisting of two individual houses centrally attached including four essentially private sleeping quarters and a spacious living and dining area. The 2-Story house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. 14 can sleep in 10 comfortable beds. The guesthouse has a bathroom and a room with 3 beads. 4 can sleep in comfortable beds. It offers the space and setting for a group of people who want to spend quality time together away from the main population centers, in a peaceful rural setting. Encircled by grass fields, small farms, a large river to the east; the ocean front to the south and some of Iceland´s most famous volcanoes within view to the north and east. You don´t even have to drive anywhere. Just walk around the outside or walk to the black beach on the river bank 20 min, and enjoy.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Privately held property with large scale options for individuals; groups or families. Beautiful, massive Cedar log house built on location offers you the warmth and inherent security that comes with a dwelling consisting of all natural materials. It is all new. The morning sun lights up the living and dining area as soon as it rises over ocean to the east. On sunny days you have long hours of light ending with the west facing bedroom and suite windows of the main house lit up by the setting sun.

This home is more beautiful than the photos! We had two families (10 people) and were very comfortable. There are a lot of modern conveniences, it's very spacious and the owners are very warm and welcoming. Do not hesitate to rent this home!

A special home in a special place

  • 4 of 5

Whether you while away the days in the hot-tub and strolling down to the sea, or use the house as a base from which to discover Iceland, you'll love it here. This is one of the few houses we found in Iceland that suits 3 couples - with 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. One or two parts of it were still being finished off as it's just been completed (hence 4 stars not 5) but it's definitely a special place. We'd be delighted to stay there again. The owner Jakob was very helpful and provided some great advice and info. For us the location was great - peaceful in the Southern Iceland countryside a couple of hours east of much busier Reykjavik. We also rented Jakob's Mercedes Vito which he dropped at the airport for us. The highlight of this property for us was sitting in the hot-tub looking at the Northern Lights. Spectacular!

Stunning. Charming. Beautiful views. Like a Magazine cover shot.

  • 5 of 5

First I would like to say the hosts were amazing. They worked with us the entire time, answered questions and gave advice on the where to go's. They were so warm and welcoming and made us feel at home.

When you first drive up, the first impression is WOW! Looks to be straight out of a magazine. it is beautifully decorated with a designer's eye, So warm, inviting & luxurious. It has a designer kitchen, beautiful large table with gorgeous chandelier. and a few great sitting areas. There is a room downstairs and a bathroom. One upstairs in the loft has a stand up tub you can relax in while looking out at the grasslands with the birds singing or open the sky lights and look for the moon or sun. 24 hours of daylight you can see both. Then the other room which had a glass enclosed walkway to get to had 3 walls of picture window. Like the other rooms it was decorated with the love and care of someone with that eye for design. She made this house a comfortable, welcoming a real charmer. The views were really stunning. Birds flying around. A river bend not to far away. You can see it from the upper level. And the black beach was close by. Kitchen is fully stocked with pans for cooking and plates, cups for a large group.

As my 30 yr old daughter stated as she walked in "This is my dream house" Mine to. Mine to. :) Just lovely in every way. If you every get a chance to stay here you will love it.
