The house was built in 1962 as a farmhouse, there was a family who ran a farm on the land until the late 90's. The house has been newly renovated but is still in an old Icelandic farm style and is not like a 100% new house, we ask our guests to have in mind that this is a very rare property up for rent and please treat it as so.
The kitchen is well equipped with a fridge with ice maker.
The house has a 4G WiFi router, the speed is around 40 to 50 mbps, but it is over 4G so it can vary a bit, but it has worked great for us.
Our swimming pool is newly built, the pool and the house is heated by our own natural geothermal hot water comes from a 800 meter deep borehole 100 meters from the house. So the heat is 100% natural. The pool will be warm/hot in the winters and in summer time we can have it as our guests prefer, at most it will be around 37°c / 99°f, this is at the most.
Our guest will have the whole farmland for them selves, it is as private as it gets, the house is located on a private 700 acres land, the land includes mountains, lake and more.
We will be one phone call away the whole time.
The owners reserve the right to enter the land for the purposes of looking after the horses, maintenance and to fish in the lake but they will be discreet about it and not cause you any disturbance.
Our family own Icelandic horses and they live on our land, there are also wild sheep on although they are fenced in a part of the land.
The house is located near a lake and we offer 4 fishing rods for our guests, there is wild fish in the lake.
The house is located in the Golden Circle area witch is the one of the top tourist attractions in Iceland.
