Why Valur Blomsterberg chose Iceland

It is a privilege to live on a Ranch with the horses in an unspoiled nature, still so close to the capital for all necessities and work.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location. Spacious and luxurious. Very rare view in all directions

Excellent Property!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Valur & Family,

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We stayed 7 night Oct 8 thru Oct 15th 2016. This is our 1st time renting a home hence we were very skeptical. However, Once we entered the home, we were nothing but delighted and happy with our pick. The house was clean, very welcoming, full ameneties as described. Temperature controlled appropriately, great views from all room. Very airy, light is good. Entertainment rooms is great for movies & TV Video Game eg: Play Station. Laundry/Dryer are excellent. Shower is great. Full Sized Fridge & Fully Loaded Pantry. We cooked all our meals at home eg: Icelandic Lamb, and Fish etc. Great Vacation......Overall Very Satisfied with our stay. Lastly Enjoyed the horses in the neighborhood.............

This place is perfectly located from all the southern tourist spot....hence ideal location for day trips and come back to beautiful home....

Overall, this was truly "Home Away From Home."

PS: Only suggestion is give physical address via email or instruction mail which should include on instruction on to how to obtain keys. :) Valur was available on phone right away for help. Great Host.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice house central location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed end of August for 4 nights- House was very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring the Golden Circle and the national parks to the east. My only concern is I have not received my damage deposit back and have email a couple of times with no response.

Beautiful with wonderful Amenities

  • 5 of 5

The listing was accurate and the amenities were excellent. This is truly a luxury Villa. The property was clean and well-maintained. We must thank Valur wholeheartedly for allowing us to stay in the wonderful well equipped home. Everything was thought of. We did not have a single need unmet.

This is a stunning property

  • 5 of 5

The photos shown do not do justice to this beautiful home. It is very comfortable, all the luxuries, beautiful views, comfortable beds, huge kitchen, plenty of room to spread out.

The owner is very easy to work with. Very customer service oriented. We wish everyone were as warm and hospitable as our host. If we needed anything at all our host moved heaven and earth to make it happen.

If you want to feel special, you need to come here.

Convenient to all day trips. We stayed 6 nights and due to our experience here we extended our stay in Iceland from 9 nights to 16.

We came to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) and we were treated to a show in the sky two nights in a row. Great spot for viewing the night sky. Horses are beautiful too and ever present.

GREAT JOB! If we come back to Iceland we will stay here.

Awesome house in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. We are a family of seven of all ages-grandparents, parents and kids. We had a wonderful stay here. The house is gorgeous and has every amenity one could want. We loved the music system and the large kitchen. The bonus were the horses on the adjoining properties-the kids were out for hours with them! Loved the beautiful location. Would definitely recommend this house.
