Why Björn Ragnar Lárusson chose Iceland

We have loved this area, and in 2009 my father bought this piece of land and build a nice house on it. Privacy and the view is the the biggest asset plus sitting in the hot pot in the evening after a long day of working or traveling.

What makes this cottage unique

Rather close to Reykjavik area and to major attraction in south west Iceland.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Wonderful, private home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Bjorn's home. It was just as pictured on VRBO, but better. My husband and I didn't want to leave the house after checking in, as it offered beautiful views of the hills and lake. The stand out of the trip was definitely the hot tub, which offered stunning views of the night sky. We got lucky and got to see the Northern lights two nights in a row, while sitting in the spa enjoying a glass of wine :) The house itself is very clean and comfortable. A few more towels, shampoo, and soap would have been great... but these were very small things. Overall we had a lovely time and would definitely stay here again if we return to the area. Further, Bjorn was very quick to respond to messages and easy to deal with. Five out of five stars :)

You couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay while in Iceland. The home was beautiful, as was the location. From there we were able to explore various sections of the country, heading off in a different direction each morning. Each night we returned to a beautiful view while relaxing in the hot tub. Bjorn provided us with all the necessary information in advance, so getting there and in was easy. I only wish we had been able to stay longer. 4 days is not enough to discover Iceland!

Beautiful escape...

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property in every single way! It was the perfect property to get away from it all while still being so incredibly close to everything. The views from the living room are astounding and were the best thing to wake up to every morning. Bjorn was easy to work with and incredibly responsive.

A couple things that are handy to know when staying at this location:

- Grab food before you leave Reykjavik. There isn't a grocery store once you leave town so be prepared! The kitchen is so wonderfully outfitted and the views are so spectacular that it makes for a wonderful evening in.

- If you do get desperate for food out, the Hotel Ion is within a 5-8 minute drive and the food was incredible! Make reservations!! They treated us really oddly, but we think that's because they aren't used to having visitors from outside the hotel dine with them.

- Vik and all the sites in between are an EASY day trip if you wake up early.

- The bedrooms get a little warm at night if you use the blackout curtains. It was also unseasonably hot when we stayed. An easy workaround we found was to open the windows during the hours that you're enjoying dinner in the bedroom you're sleeping in. That way it's had time to cool off before you block off the fresh air with the blackout curtains at night.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words :) You are always welcome back, and if you arrive during winter, I promise the house will be warm but you will get a good night sleep in the Icelandic dark winter opposite from the 24/7 sunshine in the summer time. Best luck in your future travel and we will be here for your next trip! Björn

Absolutely fantastic; wonderful accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

We had excellent directions that included pictures of keyboxes and tracks which helped with orientation in rural area. the property was as described and kept to a high standard and very clean and tidy with linen provided. the property was in a private location overlooking the lake and national park but lots of south west attractions down to Vik able to do on a day trip from here.it was very private with well kept hot tub looking down over the lake and linen towels provided, wood, BBQ, good kitchen for cooking, anything you needed.There is also a second sitting room snug fully kitted out with telescope and books and TV to watch Iceland win over England!

We chose this place for honeymoon and were really delighted with every aspect of the accommodation and Bjorns directions and details and he was also immediate to contact via email.

If you want an amazing time in an amazing spot, just book it. It is truly wonderful here, thank you Bjorn. Takk fyrir.

PS. there were no black flies either! big plus to the other end of the lake in summertime!

A fantastic house, wonderful setting and absolutely amazing views. In a peaceful and isolated area but close enough to the places you want to see. The hot tub at night with the northern lights above is something to be experienced and remembered. Clean and welcoming home and Bjorn was helpful before and during our stay . would have no hesitation recommending this property and would love to go back again.
