We choose this property because of the convenient location and accessibility throughout the year. Winter time is also wonderful in this are and easy to get around. It is close to the international airport (1 1/2 drive), to Reykjavik and all main attractions South Iceland has to offer.
The main benefits of this property is the size of rooms and living area, large number of bathrooms and the wonderful sauna/spa, game room and gym in the basement area.
We were delighted with our stay at the lodge. There were 13 of us, (eight adults, four children and a baby,) and the lodge filled all our needs with lots of room to spare. It is very spacious, and very well equipped. The professional level kitchen was amazing, equipped with everything we needed including loads of cutlery and crockery, giant oven and two dishwashers.
All the bedrooms are spacious, with comfortable king-size beds and windows with great views. Some rooms don’t have a lot of space to put clothes away, but other than that the rooms are really well equipped. Everything is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated.
The main lounge has a large comfortable seating area, and a big dining room table that seated our group easily. There is another smaller table that can be joined for really big groups. Downstairs there is a games room with billiards, ping pong, foozball and more.
We had good weather for much of our stay, and made a lot of use of the outdoor space. The patio has another table and a number of comfortable chairs, where we usually took our morning espresso. The hot tub and the fire pit were great places to gather in the evening, and were especially nice when the weather turned a bit cooler.
The lodge is very well positioned in beautiful rolling countryside. It is surrounded by gentle hills covered in heather, and as our children discovered, full of blueberries. The nearby town of Selfoss has good supermarkets, so we stocked up on our way to the lodge, and also had a good meal there at the modestly priced Surf and Turf. The children enjoyed a visit to the Selfoss warm water public swimming pool (both indoor and outdoor). The lodge is within easy reach of many Golden Circle attractions and we enjoyed visits to the original Geyser, the Gullfoss waterfall, the Thingvallir National Park, and the black sand beaches around Vik.
Signy and her sister Sigyn were wonderful to deal with, and made everything easy. We highly recommend Ulfljotsskali.
We stayed in this home in early November for a wellness/yoga retreat with 16 women. The owners (sisters) could not have been more helpful during the planning process. Emails were returned promptly and all questions (and there were many) were answered. They absolutely went above and beyond.
The house was incredible and perfect for our group. The game room area was a perfect spot for us to do yoga. The house had so many amenities, was very clean, lovely decor, warm and comfortable. We hired a local chef that the owners recommended and the food was really good.
This house will not disappoint!
As a group of 18, we spent a full week at this Lodge. The home was immaculate. It had every amenity we could have desired and it very comfortably accommodated our large group. The property was gorgeous and sitting outside in the massive hot tube while watching the Northern Lights was an unforgettable experience.
The owners were extremely friendly and easy to deal with. All correspondence was returned promptly and they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend staying here.
This house is something special.
We stayed in group of ten using 6 of the bedrooms but the house could easily accommodate double this amount. All bedrooms are beautifully decorated and furnished. The large open plan living area has beautiful views out to the hot tub (which is huge) and on to the mountains beyond. Downstairs is the games rooms, TV room and sauna. The house has everything you could need for your stay and the owners are very nice and helpful.
Nearest town is Selfoss with Supermarkets, swimming pool, hotels and restaurants/bars. Attractions in the area: Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss and Geyser. Rafting, glacier tours, glacier cave, South coast, Horsebackriding etc.
