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.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Despite very wet and windy weather we had a great time staying in this warm and attractive house. The under floor heating was a big hit and everything was bright and clean. Fully equipped and easy to find. We did not use the hot tub but the sauna was appreciated. Very convenient for the Golden Circle attractions and special thanks to Hulda who brought the key to the airport despite our early flight.

Very comfortable. Loved the amenities and location.

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I stayed here with our spouses and parents, 8 of us in all. The beds were comfortable and we made use of the hot tub twice during our weeklong stay. Selfoss had everything we needed. I'd recommend the Kaffi Kuss for pastries, soup, and burgers. We rented a car from Blue with WiFi (hotspot) its portable and used it a lot in the house also.

Fabulous. Tremendous setting and very homely.

  • 5 of 5

Iceland and particularly the Golden Circle is incredible. In one day from the property we went to the Geysir and Gullfoss waterfalls and the tectonic plates! Wonderful property in a fantastic location.

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".
