Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming home and is exactly as advertised. Fully equipped. I liked the lay out of the home with kitchen open to living area. There is plenty of room to spread out. Hot tub is big plus, especially as we were here in winter. We were able to view aurora from the deck. Market within 5 minutes with basic supplies, larger market in Fludir 10 minutes away which has most everything you would need and there is a large market in Selfoss, 30 minutes away which is extremely well stocked.

The Greenhouse Restaurant is within walking distance and is interesting and tasty. Mika Restaurant, a 5 minute drive was also very good.

Location is great for exploring The Golden Ring including Pingvellir National Park.

The owner, Solveig is extremely accommodating and helpful.

Nice house - Nice Location

  • 5 of 5

Just down the road from Gullfoss and Geyser this location is quiet and the house is well-maintained. Within easy reach is Fludir Secret Lagoon, Thorsardalur Viking Farm, Hjalparfoss Falls, Kerid Crater, Hveragerdi Hot River, Thingvellir National Park. Places further south as far as Vik are an easy day trip. Don't miss Mountaineers of Iceland's snowmobiling on Langjokull Glacier, which conveniently leaves from Gullfoss - just getting to the glacier in their huge vehicle is half the fun! Also don't miss Fridheimer Greenhouse - for a tasty lunch among the tomato plants - the restaurant is within walking distance from the house. We found the house clean and tidy with good laundry facility. The hot tub was nice and the BBQ exceptionally clean! Thanks for a very decent visit.

Very Pleasant

  • 5 of 5

Property is as described...well maintained and very clean. 4 bedrooms which worked well for 2 parents and 3 teens. BBQ outside and good kitchen and appliances for eating in. Hot tub was used every night !

Owner met us on arrival and is very pleasant, ensuring we understood where everything was and how it worked. Very helpful in letting us know where the local amenities were.

Location well placed on the golden circle route close to Gullfoss, Geysir and Pingvellir. We also easily managed day trips to Solheim glacier and Westman islands from the house.

I would recommend this property.

Be sure to swing by Friðheimar for a unique culinary experience served in a Greenhouse. A few minutes walk from the property.

The Geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana is also a must. Fontana is located by a beautiful lake and you can enjoy spectacular views from the sauna and geothermal pools. The baths vary in depth and, size and temperature and the steam rooms have been built over natural hot springs that have been used for this purpose since 1929. Laugarvatn Fontana is only a 10 minute drive from the property.
