3 Bedroom Main house + 1 bedroom guesthouse Very large patio and amazing scenery
The house has three bedrooms and can sleep up to 6 people. One bedroom has two single beds, one has a double bed and one has a double bed which can be taken apart to make to single beds. This gives opportunity for different combinations of groups to choose this house.
The guest house has a double bed a 1/2 bathroom, no shower. The house is completely separated from the main building. Please note if you want to rent the guest house as well you must select 8 guests.
The house is very well equipped. It has a spacious living room and a very good and fully furnished kitchen with a dishwasher and everything needed to make delicious meals made from fresh Icelandic produce. A gas stove and an American double fridge. There is a washroom with a washer and dryer so this house is ideal for longer stays. There is a television in the living room and in 1 bedroom (ideal for kids hangout, it also has a multimedia system with loads of cartoons and movies). To add to that there is free Wi-Fi so travelers can stay well connected throughout their stay.
On the patio is a large Weber propane barbecue as well as a nice hot tub where travelers can enjoy the midnight sun (during summer) or northern lights (during winter)and rest weary bones after sightseeing during the day.
This south Iceland holiday house is perfectly located to serve as a base for day tours around the southern and western part of Iceland. It is located within the Golden Circle so sights such as Thingvellir national park, Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir geothermal area and Kerið crater are all within an hours drive from the house.
Less than 20 minutes drive from the house is Route 1, better known as the Iceland Ringroad. From there you could venture further south along the southern shore to see sights such as Reynisdrangar, Reynisfjara or visit Vík village. Further south you'll find Skaftafell national part and the famous Vatnajokull glacial lagoon as well as many other magnificent landmarks.
Iceland's capital Reykjavik is under an hours drive from the holiday house so there is no reason not to take a trip there to enjoy a variety of restaurants, bars, cafe's, museums or just to take in the sights. I also recommend restaurants in Selfoss such as Kaffi Krús and Tryggvaskáli.
The western part of Iceland is also well within reach of this house. Iceland's highest waterfall Glymur is approximately 1 1/2 hours drive from the house. Snaefellsnes peninsula is 2 1/2 drive. There you can see Snafellsjokull glacier as it towers over the top of the peninsula. Also you can visit Djupalon and Hellnar as well as other interesting places.
All this makes this south Iceland Holiday House a great option for those who want to travel the country and have a comfortable stay.

Beautiful Home near Kerid
We arrived to the house, after much clear communication with the owners, after a long day of driving the Golden Circle. Coming home to this retreat with panoramic views, privacy, and a hot tub, was a welcome treat to the end of the day. The house was more than enough room for the 4 of us, the kitchen was perfect for cooking a meal, and the modern but simple design was perfect. We wish that more of the places that we stayed during our vacation were like this house!
thank you very much for your review Brian! I appreciate it.
Beautiful location, well-appointed home, and attentive manager.
Beautiful home. Great host. Enjoyable stay.
If you're planning activities near the Golden Circle, and want to stay nearby, this would be a great choice.
Clean, spacious, & modern home, with very responsive & friendly host.
Comfortable sleeping arrangements, well equipped kitchen (perfect for making home-cooked meals), and a great remote location away from city lights puts you in an ideal situation for viewing the Northern Lights, weather/activity permitting.
We were very fortunate and got to see the Northern Lights on our first night!
If you're not in the hot tub and want to stay outside to view the Northern Lights, be prepared to bundle up, because winter time in Iceland is very cold :)
Overall, we had a very good visit & experience, and would stay here again.
We had a great stay at this wonderful property in Iceland. Close to the sights of the Golden Circle and huge living space. Highly recommended.
Awesome location. Clean and spacious home. Hot tub is a great bonus.
Wunderschönes Haus und sehr zentral
Das großzügige Haus liegt etwas außerhalb von Selfoss und ist perfekt ausgestattet. Gleich in der Nähe finden sich die ersten Sehenswürdigkeiten, Freibad, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurant.
Die Vermieter sind sehr bemüht und helfen auch sehr schnell wenn man mal eine Frage hat.
Ich kann das Haus jedem empfehlen und würde dort sehr gerne wieder Urlaub machen.
Vielen Dank für den schönen Aufenthalt
This house is located right in the Golden Circle with countless attractions. Selfoss is the nearest town with everything you need, including my 2 favorite restaurants! (Tryggvaskali and Kaffi Krus).
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Hello. I've had a few questions about the cleaning fee. I've decided to explain it here. This property is located about 50-60 minutes from Reykjavik. Between each guest I drive there, change all the linen and towels. I clean the kitchen, living room and bathroom. Water changed in the hot tub Then all the floors are washed. I've decided to charge a fair cleaning fee instead of adding it into the rental price so that it will be fair if people are staying for 1 night or 15 nights. Best regards, Elís Viktor Kjartansson
