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.

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.

Great location to major sites on Golden Circle

  • 5 of 5

This house was in a perfect location on the Golden Circle. Not too far from the city or the airport. We were able to take day trips to Vik and the iceberg lagoon, as well as hit the major sites right on the Golden Circle. Plenty of room in the house for 5 adults to spread out. The hot tub was a perfect end to a long day of hiking!

Lovely house and very nice owner

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house was perfect to visit all the sights of the golden circle and some other further away targets. The house itself was very cozy and had really everything that you need for a wonderful vacation on Iceland. We, family with two teenagers, had plenty of room and the trampoline was use at every chance. Everything was very clean and tidy and we felt like home right away.
