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!

Wunderschönes Haus, top eingerichtet, lässt keine Wünsche übrig

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschönes Haus in schöner Lage, nur wenig Autominuten von Sellfoss entfernt. Die Räume sind sehr grosszügig mit einer schönen, modernen Einrichtung. Besonders genossen haben wir den eigenen Hotpot. Wir würden es jederzeit wieder buchen.

Stunning house, beautiful location and fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

It's a fantastic home, perfect for a family getaway (parents and teenager) or friends! It has everything you need, plenty of kitchenware, comfy seating area, relaxing bedrooms and big shower. The hot tub was a great addition, just remember to switch it on a few hours before you want to get in it! It's in a great location, if you want to explore southern Iceland. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone!

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.
