From our first arrival to our last day, we had the most wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

Sigyn was so helpful in sharing what we could expect upon arrival, and everything exceeded our expectations! It was a beautiful house in a perfect location. We honestly wished we had booked a much longer stay! We will definately be back to stay at one of Sigyn's locations again. It was so close to so many sights and the grocery store is just down the road if you want to stay in, eat, and relax. The view, quiet atmosphere, and beautiful furnishings are definately worth what we paid and we are so glad we went for this listing! See you again soon Sigyn!!

Awesome. The home more than met our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary in this home. It is beautifully appointed and Sigyn was more than helpful, made us feel like family, and directed us to supermarkets, restaurants, and local attractions. We were sad to leave after 4 days. We were a family of 7, and the 3 children were even sad to leave. Will definitely go back and will tell all that travel to Selfoss area about such a wonderful experience.

Perfect place to stay while in South Iceland

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at Sigyn's lake house. We had 3 adults and 3 kids, and the 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths made it very comfortable. Everything was really well stocked in the home - so it was easy to make meals. This is really the way to go. We stayed a hotel in Glacier Lagoon and an apartment in Reykavik to complete our trip, and while they were nice, they didn't compare to this house.

The most beautiful and complete Holliday Home ever

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely Holliday Home with 10 people. Sigyn gave us a warm welcome and everything we needed (and even more...) was in the comfortable and clean house. We enjoyed the beautiful environment, close to all the highlights of South Iceland. Not cheap, but a good balance between money and value,.

Beautiful home, great location, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, clean, beautiful lakefront property tucked in a small wooded area. Kitchen was stocked full of amenities. The owners were gracious and helpful. All of the Golden Circle attractions are within an hour's drive. Expensive yet very well done.

Amazing location and awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

Sigyn and Diddi were wonderful! The house is amazing and the hot tub is a must. You have all the spices you need to cook and the grocery store is just 15 min away in Selfoss. The location is perfect for a 1 hr drive into Reykjavik for a day downtown, it is right on the golden circle and we HIGHLY recommend taking a day to drive south east towards Vik to see many waterfalls, a glacier, lighthouse, black sand beaches and amazing countryside. The bathrooms are spacious and have really nice soap, shampoo, conditioner and hair dryers. The beds were very comfortable and were real king and queen beds (not 2 twins pushed together). If you want to see the countryside, you can't find a better place to stay!
