Excellent in everything

5 of 5
The house was in an amazing location 1 hour drive from Reykjavík and close to the sightseeing! Warm and cosy with the owners being extra nice wishing me happy birthday with a nice treat that I didn’t expect!!! Highlight of our Icelandic experience was the northern lights!!! We were looking everywhere for them but they just surprised us being outside of our house!!! That was a magical experience!!! I definitely recommend this property to everyone! Thank you very much!!!

Lovely and convienent

5 of 5
This place is excellent - had everything we needed for our stay in Iceland. Easily accessible from Selfoss (10-15 min drive) for groceries, supplies, etc. As well as VERY easy drive to many places in the Golden Circle. Excellent central location. Hot tub was fantastic to relax in after a day of touring about! Super clean, quiet and relaxing! We are planning to return in the summer some time. Recommended!!
