The owner was brilliant with communication and was on hand ready to welcome us.

The property is utterly beautiful and finished to a very high standard, thoughtful touches were included such as flip flops (for heading to the hot tub), spare weatherproof walking boots, wellie boots (and we certainly had some rain), bath robes, plenty of spare towels.

As a group of 8 we had hired 2 hire cars and headed north one day and as East as Vik another day. We therefore as a group ate at the house after a long day out and about. The kitchen facilities were brilliant and the games room an added bonus.

Despite not managing to see the Northern Lights we saw some amazing sights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a perfect location and beautiful surroundings. A long weekend we will not forget!

Thank you.

Georgous lake front property, loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and exactly as described on this site. It was everything we were hoping for and more! The home is deserving of its place on the cover of a home design magazine. The location was perfect for touring the southern part of the country. Homeowners were very helpful and responsive. We would definitely recommend to others. Thank you for a great experience!!!

From our first arrival to our last day, we had the most wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

Sigyn was so helpful in sharing what we could expect upon arrival, and everything exceeded our expectations! It was a beautiful house in a perfect location. We honestly wished we had booked a much longer stay! We will definately be back to stay at one of Sigyn's locations again. It was so close to so many sights and the grocery store is just down the road if you want to stay in, eat, and relax. The view, quiet atmosphere, and beautiful furnishings are definately worth what we paid and we are so glad we went for this listing! See you again soon Sigyn!!

Awesome. The home more than met our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary in this home. It is beautifully appointed and Sigyn was more than helpful, made us feel like family, and directed us to supermarkets, restaurants, and local attractions. We were sad to leave after 4 days. We were a family of 7, and the 3 children were even sad to leave. Will definitely go back and will tell all that travel to Selfoss area about such a wonderful experience.

Perfect place to stay while in South Iceland

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at Sigyn's lake house. We had 3 adults and 3 kids, and the 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths made it very comfortable. Everything was really well stocked in the home - so it was easy to make meals. This is really the way to go. We stayed a hotel in Glacier Lagoon and an apartment in Reykavik to complete our trip, and while they were nice, they didn't compare to this house.

The most beautiful and complete Holliday Home ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely Holliday Home with 10 people. Sigyn gave us a warm welcome and everything we needed (and even more...) was in the comfortable and clean house. We enjoyed the beautiful environment, close to all the highlights of South Iceland. Not cheap, but a good balance between money and value,.
