Lovely Warm property in an excellent location for the Golden Circle.

  • 5 of 5

Well presented and interesting property in the heart of the Golden Circle. Very close to Sellfoss for shopping and eating out. Unfortunately on our short stay we were not able to get into the Hut Tub, but it did look very appealing.

Beautiful, comfortable home close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house was immaculate when we arrived, with plenty of towels, throw blankets, etc. We loved having 3 bedrooms, as we were traveling with our two teenagers. Lovely dining table and kitchen, as well. Hafsteinn was prompt in answering my questions and helpful throughout entire stay. Would love to come back in summer and would definitely stay here again. We lucked out and saw the Northern Lights on our first three nights there. Really special trip....thank you!
