Great house in a nice central location!

  • 5 of 5

The house is really nice and well laid out. Comfortable beds, nice hottub, though the jets didn't work. The views are really great and you can just enjoy a beverage looking out the windows taking it all in. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed our house. We would like to point out that there are no jets installed on the hottub, so everything works as it should. However, there is a button on the hottub for jets that is not connected to anything. We will cover that button to prevent future misunderstandings.

Best AirBnB!

  • 5 of 5

This might be the nicest AirBnb we have stayed in, the pictures don't even do it justice! An absolutely beautiful home that is incredibly spacious, with stunning views and everything you need. It is well situated in the heart of the Golden Triangle area and perfect for big groups/families who want to relax at the house too. Agni and Hildur were very helpful and when we had a problem with the hot tub they sent someone to fix it who arrived within 5 minutes on a snowy Friday night! Can't say enough good things about this place!

Great property, pictures do not do this place justice! So much space for the 8 of us with great views! Great place to sit in the lovely natural geothermal hot tub and star gaze - saw many shooting stars on a clear night! Location was great too, very near to the main sites!

Would not hesitate to book this place on our next visit to this incredible country!

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for 4 nights with 4 small children and 4 adults. There was plenty of space for everyone to be comfortable. The golden circle is really close by as well as restaurants. There is a grocery store about 30 minutes away in Selfoss.

We saw the northern lights twice even when the kp prediction was low.

My family loved the house and the kids were really sad to leave.

We would definitely plan to stay here again.

Beautiful Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Solfaxi is a wonderful home, very comfortable, clean and simple. Everything you need plus a relaxing geothermal hot tub. It is a perfect location for heading out on hikes, just drive an hour or so in any direction and an amazing hiking adventure is there for you. The local gas station store has plenty of fresh produce and necessities. We could not have picked a better place for our family vacation. 6 adults plenty of space for us all. Could easily fit 8 adults.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed four nights at this beautiful home. It far exceeded our expectations, which were high to begin with based on other reviewers' descriptions. The setting is spectacular, the family areas are perfect for gathering, and the kitchen is well outfitted. The kitchen table is also well sized for table games when relaxing at the house. I don't need to sing the praises of the hot tub after a long day of hiking. The owners were responsive to any questions...not that we had many as they have a well-organized folder of information.
