About Elin and Borkur

We are two lawyers, parents of 4 children, but the family lives in Reykjavík where we both work. The house is our second home and we´ve spent a lot of time in it for many years. We love this beautiful place and look forward to welcoming you to our house

Elin and Borkur purchased this house in 2008

Why Elin and Borkur chose Iceland

We wanted to have a nice summer house where we could relax with our children both summer and winter. We choose this location because of the short distance to Reykjavík and all the other attractions in the surrounding neighbourhood.

What makes this house unique

We find our house perfect because it´s spacious with many bedrooms and a large living room with open kitchen. Unique garden with hot tub and large garage with many activities all year round. Magnificent location.

Perfect House Perfect Owners

  • 5 of 5

Elin, Borkur and family are the best home owners we have ever rented from. They are incredibly thoughtful and provide little basics that make your stay so nice, and easy like: coffee, shampoo, towels. This in addition to a beautiful house with loads to do in the game room, a great soak hot tub outside, always warm heating, massive eating area big enough for everyone, great kitchen, big shared common space and someone who lives locally to help should you need it made for a smooth stay.

We were doing a bit of a whirlwind trip with a big group. We had a few extra small children and they provided air mattresses and bedding that were all set up when we arrived. Not only that but we were celebrating a milestone birthday and Elin emailed with me in advance of our trip with tips on a bakery, grocery stores - so when we arrived we were well equipped to just enjoy our trip.

It was so nice to have a great house and such generous owners who didn't mind answering questions and helping to make our celebratory trip really special.

I highly recommend renting this house. Oh and the location is right in the middle of all the main attractions so that is perfect too.

Now if only Elin and Borkur could guarantee the Northern Lights!!

Thanks for a great stay.

Perfect for groups touring Southern Iceland

  • 5 of 5

Great experiences at this rental - spent 5 days/4 nights with a group of 8 touring southern Iceland and made this our home base. The house had everything you could possibly need, the owners were very responsive to questions and accommodating regarding payment. Thank-you Börkur and Elín we will definitely recommend!
