About Thorsteinn and Bjargey

We have been involved in tourism for more than 20 years.

Thorsteinn and Bjargey purchased this house in 2008

Why Thorsteinn and Bjargey chose Iceland

We built this house 2008. Since we now live in Sweden because of work, we wanted travelers to Iceland to have the opportunity to stay. Grund is located in the heart of the popular Golden Circle. Close to Reykjavik, the capital and very short to get service at Selfoss and Hveragerdi. A lot of things to see and do in the neighborhood but also an excellent place to do just nothing but relax and enjoy the nature.

What makes this house unique

The size and quality of Grund and the location makes it unique.

Stunning!

  • 4 of 5

The property was absolutely incredible! We had two families, 12 ppl accommodated comfortably. The large shower has two shower heads for showering in pairs, but only one shower room so we had to schedule our showers to get everyone through. Kitchen was well equipped, all furniture and decorations modern and in good condition. Would recommend, and would stay again.

This house is stunning

  • 5 of 5

Two families with children ranging from 3-8 stayed at this house mid-August. It is comfortable, warm, great location, beautiful large windows, and is architectually lovely. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and playing games from the large assortment of games in the kids' room. The fridge and cabinets were well stocked and the coffee maker made delicious drinks. Before you arrive, look at the pics of the house again so you know where it is from the turnoff road. The owner sent a map before arrival which was helpful but it also helps if you are looking for the house with the large windows. The house is in a great location to get to Gulfoss, Geyser, Laugergatn, and Fluoir. Just hiking around the property is otherworldly with the local geology. Buy alcohol and food in Selfoss before you arrive (20 min from house). I slept like a baby every night and I cried when we left!

Sehr, sehr schön!

  • 5 of 5

Wir - vier Erwachsene und drei Kinder - wohnten in dem Haus Grund für 10 Tage und waren begeistert. Das Haus an sich ist wunderschön und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Platzierung des Hauses auf einem Plateau in der Landschaft ist einmalig. Die Aussicht zu allen Seiten ist nicht zu toppen. Und der Eigentümer, Thorstein, ist einfach nett und sehr servicebereit und bemüht. Dazu kommt, dass das Haus inmitten der schönsten Landschaft Islands liegt. Hier fährt man schnell nach Geysir, Gullfoss, Thingvellir und und und. Abends dann lecker gegrillten Lamm auf dem Webergrill zubereiten, danach die Badesachen anziehen und eine Dusche in der Außendusche genießen, bevor man in den warmen Jacuzzi in einer vor dem Wind geschützten Gebiet der Terrasse hineinsteigt. Wie kann das Urlaubsleben besser sein? Vielen Dank für diesen phantastischen Urlaub! Takk fyrir!

Beautiful Home - Pictures don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

Our group was amazed by how gorgeous this home was. Even the pickiest of our group kept mentioning how impressed he was with the detailing in the interior. From heated floors to high ceilings, and the beautiful glass stairwell - this house is unique in so many ways. You can tell the owner went above and beyond to provide a one-of-a-kind home.

There are plenty of rooms for a large group, and it was well stocked with everything you need from toilet paper, spices for cooking, laundry detergent, games, etc. Past guests even left some liquor (and so did we for the next guests)! The home is cozy and warm, but also open and spacious so everyone can have their own space.

The location is excellent - 20 minutes from Thingvellir (we went snorkeling here which was unbelievable) and also a close drive to Selfoss where they have incredible burgers. We took the scenic route to the airport on the last day (southern route along the beach) which was stunning.

We were lucky to have Thorsteinn as our host as he is pleasant, responsive and caring. We highly recommend this home to anyone with a family or large group to enjoy Iceland's beautiful countryside :)

Spacious and comfortable house at a top location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as a family with grown up kids and their partners. The house is located on travelling distance of the main points of interest in the socalled golden circle. We loved the hottub outside the hosue is spacious, but cosy. Only one disadvantage for our big group: the hosue had only one shower (inside).

We definitely recommend this house to friends or relatives.

The house is located only 50 minutes drive from Reykjavik in a quiet area close to lake Thingvallavatn, a part of the golden circle (one of the must see places in Iceland). Its closest village Selfoss is appox 15 min driving with all services needed. Excellent hiking all around and only 20 min drive from lake Laugarvatn. Geysir and Gullfoss two of most visited sights are not far. Two good 18 hole golf courses 7 km (Öndverdarnes) and 13 km (Kidjaberg) away.
