Why Elisabet chose Southern Region
Seeking a quiet and nice home away from home we started building this house in 2008, finishing it more or less this year. We have enjoyed our stays in the house and it has lived up to expectations.
What makes this Villa unique
There is a panoramic view from the living room, closest is a moss field and some rocks and further away a mountain and we can see the ocean in the distance. From the front door one can see Burfell, a mountain that is a signiture for the region and, which can be seen from far away. Thingvellir, the parliament site of old, which is a wonderful national park, is only about 30 minutes drive from the house. There are 3 golf courses close by and an outdoor swimming pool.

Amazing property in a stunning location
We loved staying in this lovely modern house with the fantastic views it offered of the surrounding countryside. The property was cleaned to an exceptional standard for our arrival and came with everything we could have needed. It's location is perfect for enjoying the close-by attractions of the Golden Circle. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Modern spacious house in a great location
We had a wonderful stay. The house is spacious with lots of light and all modern amenities, including a dishwasher and a washing machine, which came in very handy. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It has 360 degrees of beautiful views . Thomas greeted us upon arrival and gave us a nice overview of the area as well as suggestions on the route back to the airport. The house is located 15 minutes from Selfoss, close to Geysir and Gullfoss and is a good home base for exploring southern Iceland. Reykjavik is within an hour and Vik is within 2. From the picture you may think that the house is very isolated, but that is not the case and you can see other houses nearby (but not too close). Be sure to follow directions they give you and don't use Google maps.
Peaceful and beautiful
This home is spacious, with comfortable beds, and amazing views. There is nothing additional that we needed than what this house offered. I would certainly return to this home and I highly recommend it to others.
best of the best
Amazing home really well stocked and the location is perfect - views are breathtaking - the perfect get away
Wonderful views and lovely house
The house is in a great location with wonderful 360 views of the hills and very peaceful. The pictures on the website did not fully portray how nice the house is and we enjoyed the light airy nature of the house.
It was clean, well appointed and very comfortable.
Finally Elisabet the owner went to no end of trouble to help us and we would definitely recommend the property.
Beautiful home, great base from which to explore
Our family of 6 stayed in this lovely home for a week in July. The house is new and very comfortable. The owner was very kind, even though he had to wait hours for us to arrive due to a late plane and long line at the car rental.
The location provides a great base from which to explore. Iceland is large, so we did spend a lot of time driving but we found the home conveniently placed to see sights such as geysir, Glufloss, Thingvellir, and even a day trip and hike in Landmannalauger. We miss being there already and would love to return one day!
