Excellent location, excellent accommodations. Very comfortable for our family of eight

  • 5 of 5

Thank you very much for sharing your home with us, it was excellent, with rave reviews from everyone. The home is literally less than five minute walk to the local community thermal pool, which provided fun for all ages. We used this day and easily accomplished sightseeing at the Golden Circle and a number of trips to Reykjavik. The home is very comfortable oh, very beautiful oh, and gave us the opportunity to have a wonderful view of the Northern Lights during our stay. I particularly loved the numerous walking trails that were well paved and offered gorgeous views in any direction you turned. I highly recommend staying here during your vacation to Iceland. Thank you very much!

Great house for a family

  • 5 of 5

We loved the town and location on the river. So close to the Golden Circle and a nice drive to the southern coast.

The house was warm, spacious and the beds were amazing. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals at house.

Easy to find, clean and cool interior design.

  • 5 of 5

Definitely worth a stay. The property is a good size and pretty cool inside. It also helps to be nearer to some of the best sites than you would be in Rek.

Kristin is very helpful

Perfect for seeing the Northern Lights

  • 5 of 5

Location worked for us as a home base. Every day we went in a different direction. Kitchen was well stocked for making meals for 10.

Bedrooms were very nice. Appreciated the toddler bed and pack n play. The toys and high chair were great!!

Loved the openness of the house with plenty of space for us.

The windows made it so bright and airy.

We saw the Northern lights 3 nights!! What a highlight of the trip.

Very comfortable and a beautiful spot.

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 people celebrating a 25th wedding anniversary and chose this house for the vacation. We loved being by the river and the walks around the house were great. The village is lovely with different things to see. The house itself was great. It was warm, had a very well equipped kitchen with a cupboard of herbs and spices for cooking and another with a variety of ingredients which we really appreciated as we cooked a lot. Lots of hot water in excellent showers, comfortable beds and chairs, lots of books, and a fantastic view. The location was great for the golden circle and for going along the south coast. The owner was very helpful with any questions and responded immediately when we had trouble working out the heating. I would definitely recommend it. We had a great time and would liked to have stayed longer.
