Thorsteinn and Bjargey purchased this house in 2008
We built this house 2008. Since we now live in Sweden because of work, we wanted travelers to Iceland to have the opportunity to stay. Grund is located in the heart of the popular Golden Circle. Close to Reykjavik, the capital and very short to get service at Selfoss and Hveragerdi. A lot of things to see and do in the neighborhood but also an excellent place to do just nothing but relax and enjoy the nature.
The size and quality of Grund and the location makes it unique.
Iceland was amazing and beautiful. The house was great size for all of us and amazing location but it was dirty, dust everywhere, pee stains on the mattress, dirty towel under one of the beds covered in dust. Someone pants that stayed there before us was in the garden frozen. Wasn't cleared away. Hot tub was great but bubbles don't work but still relaxing under the stars. For the price the house needs to be a lot cleaner. Plus you agree with the price and pay deposit. Soon as you get there he adds more money to the bill due the currency changing which is not right!!!!
The house and renting experience was amazing. Not only was Thorstein responsive but he was available to answer any questions and concerns we had. Iceland was amazing because of the comfort and location of this home. The group of 11 friends enjoyed every amenity- hottub, kitchen, sound system, heated floors, cards and games, laundry equipment and sauna. Thank you and hope to stay here again!!
Great location within Golden Circle. Loved the hot-tub and the spacious rooms.
The property was absolutely incredible! We had two families, 12 ppl accommodated comfortably. The large shower has two shower heads for showering in pairs, but only one shower room so we had to schedule our showers to get everyone through. Kitchen was well equipped, all furniture and decorations modern and in good condition. Would recommend, and would stay again.
Two families with children ranging from 3-8 stayed at this house mid-August. It is comfortable, warm, great location, beautiful large windows, and is architectually lovely. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and playing games from the large assortment of games in the kids' room. The fridge and cabinets were well stocked and the coffee maker made delicious drinks. Before you arrive, look at the pics of the house again so you know where it is from the turnoff road. The owner sent a map before arrival which was helpful but it also helps if you are looking for the house with the large windows. The house is in a great location to get to Gulfoss, Geyser, Laugergatn, and Fluoir. Just hiking around the property is otherworldly with the local geology. Buy alcohol and food in Selfoss before you arrive (20 min from house). I slept like a baby every night and I cried when we left!
Wir - vier Erwachsene und drei Kinder - wohnten in dem Haus Grund für 10 Tage und waren begeistert. Das Haus an sich ist wunderschön und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Platzierung des Hauses auf einem Plateau in der Landschaft ist einmalig. Die Aussicht zu allen Seiten ist nicht zu toppen. Und der Eigentümer, Thorstein, ist einfach nett und sehr servicebereit und bemüht. Dazu kommt, dass das Haus inmitten der schönsten Landschaft Islands liegt. Hier fährt man schnell nach Geysir, Gullfoss, Thingvellir und und und. Abends dann lecker gegrillten Lamm auf dem Webergrill zubereiten, danach die Badesachen anziehen und eine Dusche in der Außendusche genießen, bevor man in den warmen Jacuzzi in einer vor dem Wind geschützten Gebiet der Terrasse hineinsteigt. Wie kann das Urlaubsleben besser sein? Vielen Dank für diesen phantastischen Urlaub! Takk fyrir!
The house is located only 50 minutes drive from Reykjavik in a quiet area close to lake Thingvallavatn, a part of the golden circle (one of the must see places in Iceland). Its closest village Selfoss is appox 15 min driving with all services needed. Excellent hiking all around and only 20 min drive from lake Laugarvatn. Geysir and Gullfoss two of most visited sights are not far. Two good 18 hole golf courses 7 km (Öndverdarnes) and 13 km (Kidjaberg) away.
