About the property

Beautiful view, 4.5km from Selfoss, ideal for day trips in southern Iceland.

The house is newly built in 2015 and is located approximately 4.5 km outside Selfoss with beautiful views of the mountain Ingólfsfjall.

The cozy living / dining room with kitchen offers a good view over the countryside.

Two bedrooms with double beds can accommodate 4 people, plus there is still a place to sleep on the sofa in the TV area.

The bathroom is equipped with shower and toilet.

The house has underfloor heating in all rooms.

From mid-October 2016, the house with a hot pot (hot tube) is provided in the garden. This is filled with geothermal hot water at 38 ° C / 100 ° F.

The house is in an attractive rural location with wonderful views of the mountains and sweeping views Ingólfsfjall eastward to Mount Hekla volcano and the glacier Eyjafjallajökull.

On the meadows around the house are always Iceland horses and in the summer many species of birds can be observed by the house.

In the period from September to March, there are good viewing opportunities of the Northern Lights.

The cottage is ideal for exploring attractions such as the Golden Circle, the south coast of Iceland, the Westman Islands and the Reykjanes Peninsula. Reykjavik is only about 45 minutes away by car and the International Keflavik Airport can be reached in about 90 minutes.

In Selfoss there are good shopping opportunities with 4 supermarkets and numerous other shops.

Several restaurants and cafés as well as provide services Pizza and fast food restaurants for sustenance.

In the immediate vicinity are two larger cottages that can be rented together. Families and groups, we make you an offer for two or more homes.

As a tour operator, we can also offer excursions, car rental and flights low.

The best place to stay in Iceland!

  • 5 of 5

Iceland can be a pretty expensive place to visit, so staying outside of the city is the perfect way to enjoy Iceland. We highly recommend this place for the full amenities, kitchen, and outdoor hot tub! We went to the grocery store everyday 5 minutes away in Selfoss and cooked our own meals and saved a ton of money. KFC was great too when you dont feel like cooking, and they're open 24 hours! The house is clean and modern with everything you need to relax. The view is great, horses and mountains. Wifi is fast too.

Great home and great location!

  • 4 of 5

What a great place to stay in Iceland! Perfect location- close to Selfoss for groceries and cute shops, close to the Golden Circle, and close to South Iceland. Loved having the horses right in the front lawn.

The owners were kind and helpful. Allowed us an earlier check in time. They came to check on us when we arrived to ensure we had everything and to let us know how a few things worked.

Two things I would like to see changed:

1. Include the cleaning fee in the cost of renting the home. We did not intend on bringing a lot cash with us and had to leave 12,000 ISK or 100 Euro in the house. Would have been easier to have it included in the fee.

2. Leave directions in English as well. Explain the garbage system in a bit more detail!

Other than that, great place to stay! Well kept, updated and modern!

Thank you!

Beautiful comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home. The location is great. The home is clean and beautiful. The kitchen had the items needed for meals. We enjoyed the views. We were able to see the northern lights each night during our stay! (Only suggestion we have is to have a way to turn off the porch lights in order to watch the northern lights.). We highly recommend this home for vacation.

Owner lives very close, nice to see horses in fields outside house.

A couple of Km outside Selfoss which has a couple of large supermarkets.

Great scenery in a comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

The location was great to explore Southwest Iceland. The house is very nice, newly built with a nice large, fully furnished kitchen. The view outside is absolutely great. In the heart of Icelands countryside yet 5 minutes away from Selfoss and it's services. There were even horses right in front of the house for a few days when were there.

I recommend it for anyone looking to relax and explore this region.
