Photos and Description of this South holiday house

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.

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

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.

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.

We had such a lovely time here! The home is so beautiful and well kept. We were one of the first people who stayed there and you can tell how much Sven and Hilda care for their home. It is a great location to get to different waterfalls, a horse show, and glaciers if you choose. The northern lights were added bonus.

Thank you!

Great stay!

  • 4 of 5

This house is lovely, comfortable and clean.

The good:

Easy to find & easy to get to popular destinations in the southern area of the country

Very clean & organized

Comfortable furnishings

Satellite TV & radio available

Beautiful views with ponies in the back

Responsive owner - typically heard back in under 24 hours; they're also on-sight so if anything had come up we could have knocked on their door.

Things to consider:

The bed in the main bedroom was firm which may not work for some people. We collapsed at the end of the day so it wasn't too bad for us.

There's no hairdryer so bring your own.

The house instructions left for us were not in English so I hope we cleaned up to the owner's liking.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay. The house looks small from the outside but felt very large. The rooms were well lit by the large windows and the house was well heated.
