About Jon Baldur Torbjornsson
I'm in my sixties now. After having finished High School I joined the Icelandic cargo fleet. As able seaman I sailed for one and a half year, bringing frozen fish to the East Coast of the USA, but Corn Flakes and Cocoa Puffs back. With a firm land under my feet again I started in Auto mechanics at the vocational school here in Iceland and went thereafter to a College in Munich, Germany for Automotive Constructional Engineering for 5 years. Being back in Iceland I worked in my profession as technical Director at the Ministry of Transportation in Iceland for some years. But by increased interest in Tourism after having worked as a tourist guide, I founded my own tour company "Isafold Travel" 1997 and the unique 4x4 Rental "Isak" (only Land Rover Defenders) in 2007. Sold the whole business in 2015 to start up a new enterprise, Nordic Lodges, offering a few vacation rentals in various parts of Iceland, under the brand name Nordic Lodges, offering the concept "Roof 'n Route". That's where I'm now!

Why Jon Baldur Torbjornsson chose Reykholt
Our cozy cottage Holt is somehow embracing the people staying there, comfortable, warm, well equipped and showing a good craftmanship. I personally like it a lot to stay there, and I expect the same for you.

Property is located in a great location for the Golden Circle. The house was very clean and quiet.
FAR beyond our expectations!!
We just returned from this amazing location. We arrived easily and the owner had left personalized notes, had come early to fill the hot tub for us and left us a lovely bottle of champagne to welcome us! The home was very open and light, the location private and the view amazing, clear without another sight of a house or building for miles. Highly recommend this beautiful location!!
Wonderful Stay in a Cozy Cottage
Our family of 5 had a great stay at the Cottage Holt! The accommodations could not have been cleaner or cozier, and our hosts left provided us all of the information about the home and the area that we needed. Would highly recommend this stay to anyone visiting the South of Iceland.
We who are running this cozy cottage Holt, that is I and my wife, we love guests like this family. I'm not only talking of such a positive review that says everything needed in just few words, but also giving such a nice and easy correspondence and encounter of any kind. Welcome back again, anytime!
We love this house
We love this house. So private, it feels like we are the only ones around. Very quiet and feels very safe, need a passcode to enter the property's gate. Amazing open scenery surrounded by beautiful mountains. Great paths for taking walk during sunset. Hot tub is very comfortable, beautiful deck with great view. Bathroom door open straight to tub, reducing time to exposed to cold weather. Cute house with everything we needed. Kitchen is very well equipped and convenient for cooking dinner. Big refrigerator. A lot of beds for a family of five like us. Our three kids loved their private clubhouse bedroom upstairs. They also loved the piano, a highlight of their stay. We were sad to leave.
Thank you sooo much for this beautiful review. I'm very happy to hear about all these Items that you tell us you liked -then we know that we share a common view on what can bring people pleasure!
An amazing cottage - stunning position and facilities. It is as good as it looks in the photos. Great location for visiting the Golden Circle sights. The property was really comfortable and very well equipped. Hot tub was a great addition.
We are very happy to see this response from you, happy that you had a great time at our cozy cottage Holt. Then we know, that our aim to offer our guests an excellent service has been reached -again:-).
Excellent place to stay!
This is an excellent place to stay, great location, comfortable house that is outside of the city environment. It features all the comforts of home with beautiful views all around you. Owner is very attentive to your needs with quick responses to questions, and pays attention to all of the special extra things to make your stay comfortable. It is close to the attractions of the golden circle, geyser, guilfoss. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Thank you very much for this wonderful review, thank you for appreciating our efforts to make you the stay at our cabin Holt enjoyable. Indeed we see it as our duty to offer such a service -a pleasant duty!
