4 Bedroom, 2,5 Bathroom Lakefront - Lake And Mountain View - Infinity hot tub
About Signy Eiriksdottir
I am born and raised in Iceland. Live in the Reykjavik area. The Lake house has been my vacation home for 10 years. Me and my family have spend most weekends and holidays there since we bought the land and built the house.
Signy Eiriksdottir purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Signy Eiriksdottir chose Selfoss
This is the perfect vacation home to us frequently since the access is all year and the drive from the city is only 45 minutes. The access to the lake and the beach and the view of the mountains is the main attraction. The high trees surrounding the house gives it an extra privacy and shelter from any wind. Its really something you don´t get in many places in Iceland.
What makes this Villa unique
All main tourist attractions of South Iceland are within an easy drive, half day or whole day. Restaurants, golf, hiking, horsebackriding, pools and spa in the surrounding area.

Six wonderful nights
There are so many places in the world that we* want to explore, yet we're already trying to figure out how to make it back to Iceland, and this beautiful villa, even though we've been home for less than 24 hours. Our six night stay included Christmas and a beautiful snowfall on Christmas eve. What a wonderful place to spend the holiday! We arrived on the solstice and were welcomed by a beautiful sunset, a bevy of swans, and our gracious host, Signy. Overall, we had amazing weather for December and made it out to visit locations in southern Iceland almost every day, including driving east about four hours to Jökulsárlón. We had hoped for a dazzling aurora borealis, but since we didn't see one, we'll cross our fingers for next time. The kitchen was well equipped, the bedrooms were very comfortable, and other amenities were all top notch. The hot tub was delightful and wonderful to soak in after hiking around beautiful Iceland.

Spectacular property in an ideal location
We stayed five nights at this incredible property and it exceeded all our expectations! The house was just perfect for our party of five adults and one child; we had plenty of space and privacy but loved having a large, open communal area to gather, eat, and relax. Of course a big highlight was the hot tub! We used it each night to recover from our active days of exploring the wonders of Iceland. Even when the weather was cold and windy, we were well-equipped by the owners with plush bathrobes and towels which made the hot tub experience even better. The views are just as depicted in the photos, but even better since you see all kinds of weather and light changes from the house. The lake water is quite frigid so we only dipped our toes in but having that expanse of water to gaze at each day was still worth it. There are many magical touches in the forest around the home, which I will let others discover for themselves. The beds are very comfortable and the house had every amenity we needed for cooking as well as high-end bath products so no need to carry your own from home. The location is perfect for exploring the Golden Circle -- the driving is easy and the many landscapes are almost beyond imagination. We were terribly sad to leave this enchanting home and hope we can return again before long!
We are a family of 6, (kids are 10, 14, 15 and 18). This was our first visit to Iceland.. We absolutely loved our stay at this villa. There was plenty of room for us all, the kitchen had everything you would need for meal preparation. The house was immaculate. The hot tub was out of this world!
It was a great location, we did day trips to the Blue Lagoon, to Vik and to many hikes around the villa! The Kerid Crater is only a few minute drive from the villa!
We would highly recommend this property. Thank you so much to our kind and thoughtful host Signey.
The Best of Iceland
The Álftavík Lake House was centrally located on the Golden Circle providing easy access for quick trips to the most famous Iceland attractions. The house itself was so private, comfortable and well appointed it made for a wonderful respite from the sightseeing. In the end, the lake house was an attraction itself, allowing us to sample the best of Iceland living from soaking in the hot tub to kayaking on the lake among the frolicking Artic Terns.
A Mid-Summer Dream Home
We have utilized VRBO on a number of vacations. This is the first where the property was better than the photos. This is a fantastic home we shared with two other couples and it was perfect for our summer vacation. Close to Selfoss and the markets as well as the "Golden Circle." We may have to return for winter to see the Norther Lights. The geothermic pool is fantastic and the lake and beautiful.
We'd definitely do this trip again.
