Booking was easy and the driving directions were excellent. The cabin is stunning, with all the amenities you could wish for. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is fully equipped, there is a washer drier and a dishwasher and the hot tub was fabulous. There are so many little extra touches like DVD's to watch, a PlayStation with games for the kids and coffee/tea sugar in case you forgot. Erlingur was really friendly and helpful. Selfoss is only a few miles away for supermarkets and restaurants. We tried Yellow and really enjoyed the food there. The only thing missing is black out blinds. It was impossible to see the projector screen in July as it was too light. Not a big problem though. I would definitely recommend Versalir for a relaxing break.

Extremely well equipped and comfortably furnished with a lovely hot tub on the terrace. We did find the added cost of a substantial cash payment for the cleaner on top of the rental cost a little irritating, as was the instruction to take all our garbage away with us (difficult when you're leaving to catch a plane). Generally, however, we were delighted.
