Great House in Iceland!!!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 5 friends just left this create home in Selfoss and we couldn’t be happier! This quaint spot was perfect for our needs and a great place to come back to after a long day of hiking/sightseeing! The hot tub was super relaxing and the big bathroom worked for 5 girls. The house is well equipped with cooking utensils and close to Bonus if you want to cook!

Great value, can’t wair to come stay again!

Lovely and comfortabke

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is lovely, very open, and a nice kitchen. There were 4 of us on a girls trip and it was a great location for our first few days before we moved on to the next location in Iceland.

We have just had four perfect days in Iceland.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable with excellent facilities the kitchen laundry and living areas are all first rate. The underfloor heating keeps the building toasty warm. Fantastic views we watched the northern lights from the comfort of the living room. It gives the impression of being isolated but you are minutes from selfoss with good access to the south coast attractions gulfoss a the geysers. I can’t recommend this home enough.

Cozy peaceful comfort away from it all but near everything at the same time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our two adult kids to Iceland and we spent the first few nights at this home right outside Selfoss. It was fantastic! The house is very nicely maintained and very comfortable for the four of us to relax at the end of a long day of hiking and exploring. The bonus was the horses! So sweet! Came up and surrounded us with their inquisitive nudges and sweet stares and loved being pet and scratched! This was the perfect place to stay and get away from it all and really enjoy the peace. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and food basics too, so if you forget something at the store you might find it in the cupboard. The living room with its comfy chairs and couch was the best place to get off our feet. The bedrooms are basic but comfortable. Every window has a great view! And there are many guide books to Iceland if you're looking for something to do. The only disappointment was that the hot tub was empty... but not sure we had time to use it anyway. We will definitely return when we go back to Iceland to do a few more of the things we didn't get a chance to do on this trip!
