About Ingvar Thor Gylfason

Erlingur & Ingvar started their business in 20th of September 2013 when they bought their first land in Grimsnes, south of Iceland. They used up their savings for the down payment and got a loan to pay the rest. They started planting treas and digging for streams. On 17th of June 2014 they received their first shipment of material for building a cabin. They worked very hard, along side their jobs as engineers in Reykjavik, for 9 months building this cabin.

On 10th of March 2015 the first guests arrived to the cabin. Two couples from India. Since then the cabin has more or less been rented out. We are grateful to be a part of people's vacation and to participate in people experiencing comfort and memories.

Since then they have bought another land, two apartments in Reykjavik and are heading strong into 2017 to add more properties.

Erlingur & Ingvar want their customers to experience the most comfort in their properties. That memories are created that will last a life time. Renting out a property is not just about selling a bed each night, it is about selling people the best vacation experience they have ever lived.

Perfect Location for a Stay in the Golden Circle

  • 4 of 5

There are plenty of nice things to say about this cabin. It's clean and well kept. It stayed warm and cozy even when the wind was howling outside. The hot tub is ideal and easy to use. There are other cabins near by, but there is a real feeling of being out there in Iceland and the landscape's rugged beauty is mesmerizing. Many guests have reported seeing the northern lights. We were there the wrong time of year for that, but I can imagine this is a great spot for that. But the best thing to say about the cabin is the location. There is easy access to all the Golden Circle destinations. Selfoss is not far, so it's easy to run into town for provisions. And if you plan a trip down the south shore, this is a good starting point. The cabin is perfect for a quick stop to see the local sights, or a long stay to get away from it all.

Serenity in the Mountains- A Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

How do we began to express how maginificant a stay we had here.

Everything was exactly as pictured. The home was well cared for and clean. But the true gem was its location. The serenity of the mountains added a special magical feel to our vacation. At night with the snow in the hot tub or enjoying coffee with the sunrise.

Although I never had the pleasure of meeting Erlingur, he was always quick to respond to emails. He even provided a local guide of food store, gas station, restaurant, etc.

The beds were very comfortable and the linens were clean. There was plenty of drawer storage.

It was a group of 5, and the couch made a perfect bed. It was very comfortable.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. It allowed us to make lunch and dinner. We also used the grill. Which we had no issue with.

Selfoss was 15 minutes drive which allowed us to go food shopping. We do recommend Bonus Food store as it was more affordable.

For our group, the homes location could not have been better. Everything in Iceland is a drive but this home's central location in the Golden Circle made black sand beach/Vik a three hour drive, an hour to Seljalandsfoss, an hour to Gullfoss/Geysir and 30 minutes to Fontana.

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights at the beginning of November - it was such a fantastic well equipped cabin, with everything to make your life easier. Very comfortable beds and great kitchen for cooking and chatting in. Really enjoyed the cinema projector, has made us want one at home! We spent a very enjoyable hour or two with Erlingur who gave us some good advice about Iceland - we very much enjoyed talking with you - thank you. We would love to come back soon, as we have totally fallen in love with Iceland! A stunning country! Would like to stay longer next time........

Beautiful stunning home with great location. The house itself was absolutely beautiful- well thought out floor plan with creature comforts like a projector for cozy nights, great kitchen for cooking, and thoughtful family friendly necessities for our toddler: high chair, pack and play, and even a stuffed animal to play with. The jacuzzi was great. We had a the opportunity to see the northern lights! Our toddler was in awe. The location is great to the Golden circle but I highly recommend doing things off the beaten path like the secret lagoon, Fontana Laugarvatan (not so off beaten path but great too), hikes to waterfalls and hot springs. As a family, we also enjoyed Selfoss community swimming pool which had geothermal pools and water slides and kid toys. Selfoss is great for grocery shopping - kronan and bonus. We had burgers and fries and ice cream at Efstidalur after Fontana Laugarvatan- a nice treat!

Most of all, we appreciated the warm welcome from Erlingur- our host. Communication with him was great- responsive and had great recommendations. We had a phenomenal time and hope to come back in a couple of years from now. Thanks Erlingur!!

Clean, modern and welcoming in great location!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the modern and spacious layout of the cabin. It really feels very private and luxurious and provided the perfect base to end our Iceland trip. The hot tub on the deck is wonderful and is a great way to relax after a busy day exploring the area. All the key sights are within a reasonable drive of the property and we even had a rest day in the cabin which was so peaceful and relaxing. All the facilities worked perfectly and we were provided with a very comprehensive information pack before our trip so we could plan our stay. I would certainly recommend this cabin to friends and family and it would be my first choice on any future trip to Iceland.
