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.

Great cabin in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin with everything you would need for your stay. We never meet the owners but they we're very helpful when we had to contact them. Great location for the golden circle and many more beautiful places to visit. We were lucky enough to see the northern lights on our last evening at the cabin we managed to get some fantastic photo's. We can't wait to come back and explore more of iceland we could not recommend it enough ☺

Totally cozy and home from home

  • 5 of 5

As we have described in the visitors book, this cabin exceeded expectations in every way ... warm and cozy, we loved the log burner, projector and hot tub and it's proximity to all the natural sites of the golden circle, we completely relaxed having spent four nights there in October. The owners have thought of everything to ensure a comfortable stay. It was great to meet Erlingur in Reykjavik when we stayed at the city apartment also highly recommended. Strongly recommend this cabin to all.

Awesome place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Versalir cabin. The home is in the perfect location--far enough away to feel like you are away from other people, but close enough to access all of the amazing sites on the golden triangle. The home is comfortable, clean and well-appointed. Our family of five had a great time sitting in the hot tub after a log day of adventuring. The pull-out couch was comfortable and the bedrooms were perfect. Cooking was easy in the kitchen. We will treasure our time at Versalir Cabin.

Fabulous Cabin in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Versalir cabin for 4 nights in the middle of our week long trip to Iceland. Booking was easy and the driving directions were excellent.

The cabin is stunning, with all the amenities you could wish for. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is fully equipped, there is a washer drier and a dishwasher and the hot tub was fabulous. There are so many little extra touches like DVD's to watch, a PlayStation with games for the kids and coffee/tea sugar in case you forgot. Erlingur was really friendly and helpful.

Selfoss is only a few miles away for supermarkets and restaurants. We tried Yellow and really enjoyed the food there.

The only thing missing is black out blinds. It was impossible to see the projector screen in July as it was too light. Not a big problem though.

I would definitely recommend Versalir for a relaxing break.

Great place to stay in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, including kids ages 11 and 9, just spent 5 days at Versalir. It was a cozy place to return after a day of wind and rain, since we were largely unfortunate with the weather. There are grocery stores and restaurants sufficiently close to the cabin, but enough space around the cabin that it feels more remote than it is. We loved the location as we were close to many spots on the Golden Circle but far from any crowds. We drove 5 hours each way to the eastern Glacier Lagoon and it was the highlight of our week, since although it was a long day, there were many gorgeous spots along the way to stop for short hikes. The kids loved the hot tub, and we also did an afternoon at the thermal swimming pool in Selfoss, which was mostly locals so nice to do something off the tourist track. We hope to return to Versalir one day.
