This was the best part of our honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly comfortable, amazing view, great location to post up for a week in Iceland.. and I'm picky. Orn was incredibly responsive and helpful. I lost my car keys and spent over an hour frantically looking for them so we could checkout in time. Orn told me no problem... even though I knew he had to clean for the next guest.... keys were on the window sill in the kitchen.

Welcome Warmth in June

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, warm and cosy. The location is great for sight seeing in the Southern Region. There is so much more to explore but we managed to see the key sights within 1.5 to 2 hours drive - Geysirs, Pingvellir National Park, Solheimjokull glacier, and the many waterfalls along the way. We hope we can return... one day! Icelandic summer is awesome, even when it rains.

A beautiful home from home

  • 5 of 5

Two days before departure we were informed by text that our booked property would have no water for the first three days of our stay. Combined with the fact that, despite numerous emails, the exact location was still a mystery we had no option to cancel and look at other websites.

Frantically we found Lækjarbakki 11 on Home and Away and emailed more in hope than anything else. With 10 minutes we were not only booked in for the week but Ingunn and Örn had sent concise instructions about the property including pictures of road junctions leading to the summerhouse. The professionalism of the initial contact was indicative of our dealings with the owners. What could have been a nightmare turned out to be a pleasurable and rewarding experience.

First of all, the photographs do not do it justice, they may capture the location but not the ever-changing light and sounds of the landscape or ambience of the accommodation. You have to experience the summerhouse to really appreciate what a quality letting it is. The location, view from the terrace and interior fittings are simply stunning. 10 minutes from the amenities of Selfoss and within 40 minutes of the top three attractions such as Gullfoss, as well as Reykjavik, the location is ideal for exploring Iceland. Perched on a hillside, flanked by mountains you get a sense of isolation yet know that petrol stations, banks, supermarkets etc are within easy reach. The summer house has a modern open plan layout and is fitted out with everything one needs for self catering: with the added bonus of good Wi-Fi and Netflix. Add the hot tub, comfortable bed, underfloor heating and a soft sofa, it quickly became more a home than a place to rest our heads between day trips. Sitting on the terrace or in the hot tub, the ever-changing vista is stunning and tranquil, even with two young boys in tow, the general ambience allowed the adults to relax and unwind.

We as a couple are not ones to usually wax lyrically about accommodation, travelling regularly for business it is very rare to find something which ticks all the boxes- but in all honesty we found the summerhouse, not only exceeding our expectations and even if pushed would struggle to write a single negative comment.

It is simply as beautiful as Iceland is itself.

Outstanding Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely perfect. The scenery was incredible, we were surrounded by mountains and open skies. We were very impressed with the heated floors! It felt great to come home (yes, home!) after a long day of hiking and traveling. Orn and Ingunn have all the amenities in the cabin to make it a comfortable stay. We ate in almost every night because we enjoyed the comfort and tranquility that the cabin provided. We will definitely stay there again!

The perfect house in a perfect location for your Icelandic vacation

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this house and the owners. The house was perfectly situated for day trips and it was such a warm, inviting place to come back to each night. The heated floor was so cozy and the open floor plan was so comfortable. Sadly, we did not see the northern lights but sitting outside in the hot tub at night was a treat just the same. The owners were beyond wonderful, cheerfully taking all of my phone calls and questions. They were so kind to send me my earrings that I inadvertently left at the house and even refused to allow me to pay for the postage! We are hoping to come back during the Summer months and will definitely plan on staying here again!
