About Gudrun

Born and raised in beutiful Iceland with strong ties to the country. Mother of three and large extended family. We have lived in the UK sine 2006 but spend all our summers in our house in Iceland or travelling around Iceland, hiking, fishing, horse riding, golfing and all we enjoy the most at this magical place in the North Atlantic.

Gudrun purchased this house in 2009

Why Gudrun chose Iceland

We wanted to have a home in Iceland where we could spend time with our children but have space to entertain family and friends. The location is in a beautiful rural setting but still within reasonable reach from Reykjavik, services, friends etc. This part of Iceland is also known as one of the best weather location ... although not many people go to Iceland for the weather ... which is thankfully compensated by the extra ordinary natural beauty of the island.

What makes this house unique

The view from the living room and off the veranda are breathtaking in all seasons. Turning off all the lights in the winter will cancel out any light pollution and the northern lights can be spectacular.

Stunning house in great location

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely love this house! The main house is massive, high ceilings, good size bedrooms, huge TV, big dining area and has all the amenities you will need. It was 8 of us staying here for a week and it catered well for all of our needs. Me and my fiance actually slept a in the smaller house which I absolutely adore. Handy when you want a little bit of privacy but want to socialise with a bigger group. We used the BBQ every night, sitting on the massive porch enjoying the views and the hot tub was super lovely after a day of sightseeing. Some of us walked around the area (we even saw a wild black fox) but mostly we used the property as a base for some major sightseeing. There is so much to see in the area and this is a great location for it! The property was very clean, the beds lovely and comfortable, the bed sheets smelt nice and the towels were so soft. I can't wait to come back, I highly recommend this place!

What a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the owner of this beautiful and spacious house. Excellent located if you want to see the typical sights of south-west Iceland. Both houses (main and small one) were absolutely clean, nice decorated and perfect for families and even couples. We will come back in a couple of years - for sure ! Lucas

Wow! Luxuriöses Haus in ruhiger Lage am golden C.

  • 5 of 5

Dieses sehr große und bestens ausgestattete Haus hat uns begeistert!

Am Ende unserer Rundreise haben wir zu viert 4 Nächte hier verbracht und haben den Hot-Pot, die Sauna und das großzügig geschnittene Haus samt Gästehaus (in dem einer unserer Söhne genächtigt hat) sehr genossen.

Das Haus liegt in einem eingezäunten und durch eine Schranke gesicherten Gelände in einer isländischen, sehr weitläufig gestalteten Ferienhaussiedlung. Der offene Wohnbereich mit gut ausgestatteter Küche (Gewürze und Kühlschrankinhalt und sonstiges zur freien Verfügung) und die große Terrasse mit einem wirklich tollen Gasgrill laden zum selber Kochen und Genießen geradezu ein.

Alles pikobello sauber und das Wohlfühlen beginnt mit dem Ankommen. Die Mutter der Besitzerin lebt in Keflavik, dort kann man auch den Schlüssel abholen. Wir sind von Osten gekommen und so ist sie kurzerhand die 70km angereist und hat uns herzlich willkommen geheißen.

Wir würden jederzeit wieder hier Urlaub machen. Die Lage ist 15 Minuten von Selfoss (Einkaufen) und 40 Minuten von Geysir entfernt und ist ideal für Ausflüge am "golden circle".

EXTRAORDINAIRE!

  • 5 of 5

Un séjour inoubliable dans un pays extraordinaire! Une magnifique maison très agréable à vivre et parfaitement située à proximité des grands sites touristiques du sud de l'île. Un grand merci aussi à Gudrun et Gudmundur, les propriétaires, pour leur disponibilité et leur gentillesse.

Seul "bémol", la météo, surtout ne pas oublier les vêtements chauds imperméables et coupe vent, même au mois d'août!

Fantastic living in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

We can highly recommend this fantastic cottage. It is perfectly located within reach of several great Icelandic attractions. The view from the cottage, in several directions, was fantastic and to sit in the outdoor jacuzzi and look at the Northern Lights at night was spectacular.

We arrived at Easter holiday when several stores was closed but the landlords arranged so we had the basic necessities such as bread, milk, eggs, chocolate, cheese and fresh fruit when we arrived and fresh flowers on the kitchen table was a nice touch.

We were eight people in two families living together and we had plenty of space. Great planning of the house with space to socialize.

We can highly recommend this cottage when travelling to the spectacular country of Iceland.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage to our friends or to stay here again ourselves.
