Quiet and comfortable. Well equipped and roomy

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay. The main room brought us all together for meals and enjoyment. Hot tub and sauna were relaxing. Located well for day trips around the golden circle. Thank you for being a wonderful and responsive host!

Icelandic Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely house and location to stay at. Very warm and inviting atmosphere. The house is close to Vik, Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon, Airport - really everywhere. The grocery store is a short round about away, and the green house in the back became a beacon home at night.

We were very sad to leave and want to move to Iceland. Beautiful Country, lovely people, and truly my favorite place to stay was here.

I have to say, I loved the dryer and the way it pulled out water too, looking to purchase one. The house also had a lovely hot pot and sauna that just was a treat after a day out.

Enjoy, and utilize this home. Our host was lovely as well!!!!!

Great for six people

Great place to wind down after touring all day! Quite a drive from Reykjavik though. Great kitchen and the "Hot Pot" was so relaxing.

Perfect in every way !!

  • 5 of 5

We had the MOST AMAZING time here at this wonderful home. I Loved everything about this place...location was perfect for what we wanted to visit and a sauna every morning and night was a delight. We saw the northern lights from the front porch and that was Epic. I highly recommend this home it will make your trip so memorable!!!

The owner is a gem and even helped us with the dryer language by coming over to translate the usage . The beds were so comfy with the down comforters and soft sheets too ! Don't look further this is IT!

The house is well maintained and furnished. It is in a great location in the Golden Triangle.

  • 5 of 5

The hostess, Solveig, warmly invites you to call with any questions. We really enjoyed being in the country. Many things are close at hand, including a wonderful lunch at Fridheimer's, a tomato greenhouse. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. The hot tub is great. We hope to return one day.
