About Bjarni Thor Jonsson

I am a 70 years old lawyer working for the building department of the capital city Reykjavik in Iceland. I was born in Reykjavik and live there.

Bjarni Thor Jonsson purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Bjarni Thor Jonsson chose Iceland

I have many relatives and friends in this area and was working on a farm as a young boy. I have always loved this part of the country with all its attractions and beautiful landscape.

What makes this cottage unique

When this ground came for sale 10 years ago I did not hesitate to buy it. I could choose from several situations but this one had it all. On a hillside with mainly grass, moss and blueberries late August and September and a great view from the hillside over to the mountains.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house is very nice and comfortable with lots of space. Everything is new and in perfect condition. The owner is very friendly and helpsome. Sitting in the hottop you have a beautiful view of the mountains and the sunset. We recommend the house very much.

TRAUMHAFT SCHÖN!!!

  • 5 of 5

Einen sehr herzlichen und umsorgenden Besitzer haben wir bereits vor unsererem zweitägigem Aufenthalt in Reykjavik getroffen wo er uns alles Notwendige für das Blockhaus übergab. Daraus wurde gleich ein tolles fast zweistündiges Treffen.

Angekommen, eingetreten, zu Hause gefühlt. Keine unangenehmen Gerüche, kein Makel, einfach schön! Übertrifft die Bilder unserer Meinung nach. Auch für unsere kleine Tochter wurde ein extra Bettchen zurecht gemacht und ein Hochstuhl stand bereit.

Die Lage ist perfekt um den Süden / Süd-Westen Islands zu erkunden und liegt zentral gelegen an sehr vielen wundervollen Orten die von dort aus mit dem Mietwagen super zu erkunden sind.

Zu jederzeit stand Bjarni uns über die ganze Planung unseres Islandurlaubs hinweg mit Rat und Tat zur Seite und gab uns zusätzlich noch eine sehr detaillierte Karte der näheren Umgebung mit auf unsere Reise.

Wir möchten ihm ein herzliches DANKE aussprechen für alles und dass wir Gäste in seiner wundervollen Log Cabin sein, und ihn kennen lernen durften!!

PREIS - LEISTUNG: PERFEKT

One of the best vacation rentals on VRBO and amazing owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bjarni's Thorsholt cabin fora week in May while celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary. First, the cabin's location is perfect as a home base for sightseeing. You are no more than a few minutes from The Secret Lagoon, 30 minutes to Gullfoss, Geiser, and Bruarfoss, and less than an hour to Thingvellir. Reykjavik, Vik, Haifoss, Gjain, and so many other wonderful places to see are just over an hour away. In all, I could not image a better location to stay at while exploring Iceland.

The cabin itself is clean, has everything you need, and is really well constructed. The view from the hot tub is beautiful, the sauna was really high end, and the cabin's amenities are topnotch. The beds are very comfortable and the entire cabin was very nicely appointed/decorated. The town of Fludir is just a five minute drive to groceries, liquor store, and an excellent Ethiopian restaurant which we ate at twice because it was so good.

The best thing of all however is the helpfulness of the cabin owner Bjarni. Bjarni met us at our car rental location upon arrival to give us maps and free use of his GPS for the week which was great to have. He also made arrangements with a local florist and pastor to help us with a vow renewal ceremony and he even volunteered to take pictures of the ceremony as we celebrated that day. Bjarni is one of those really good people who offers to help wherever he can and wants to truly make sure that everyone has a great time exploring his Iceland.

I could not recommend this cabin or its owner, Bjarni, any more highly.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic trip. Bjarni was a wonderful host. He met us at the airport at 4:30 AM!!! Provided us with his GPS to locate the cabin and was available for any needed assistance. The cabin was SPOTLESS and fully stocked with everything you might need. ( the only challenge was how to operate the stove... for us English speakers.. maybe English instruction?) None the less we figured it out. We used the cabin as a base for traveling throughout the southwest portion of Iceland and the Golden Circle. We were able to see and photograph the Northern Lights from the deck and gazed at the stars ( and lots of satellites) almost every night from the hot tub. The sauna was relaxing after hiking and sightseeing.

The restaurant in Fluidir; The Grund was DELICIOUS and the hostess was most gracious. We loved the self serve greenhouses for fresh produce. The cabin held a family of four and the guest house held our friends. The beds were most comfortable... in fact our friends searched online to purchase one for their home.

This is a great cabin with a wonderful location for sightseeing trips and a gracious host. I do not think you will find a better palce to stay!

Wonderful cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is the best log cabin I have ever stayed in. It is perfect. We had a wonderful stay; it was so relaxing and the views with the ever changing winter weather were amazing. The cabin is exceptionally well equipped and the memory of sitting in a hot tub while it is snowing will stay with me forever. Bjarni was incredibly kind and helpful, as was his neighbour, who helped us with our car.

I really cannot fault this rental on any way.

Perfect in every way

We stayed at the house for five days and it was a great location for seeing so many sights. The house is well equipped , clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed the hot tub. Bjarni was so helpful and made things very easy! I would definitely stay there again.

Thorsholt log cabin is located close to the Golden circle with Kerid, Thingvellir, Laugarvatn, Gullfoss and Geysir. Next to it are many other places of interest like the old bishopric Skalholt, the Eco-village Solheimar and Bruarhlod the top of 10 km. long canyon formed by the river Hvita and not far away from several major attractions in South Iceland, with endless activities to choose from. One of the biggest horse riding centers in Southern Iceland, Syðra- Langholt is only few min away from Thorsholt log cabin. River rafting tours are on the Hvita River and geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana Spa. Fludir village has a grocery store, restaurants, liquor store and swimming pool with hot tubs and a steam bath.

The location is ideal for a day tour drive to many interesting places in south of Iceland like Tjorsardalur and Landmannalaugar, Seljalandsfoss and Skogarfoss, Eyjafjallajökull and to take the ferry to Vestmannaeyjar.
