About Thorsteinn and Bjargey
We have been involved in tourism for more than 20 years.
Thorsteinn and Bjargey purchased this House in 2008
Why Thorsteinn and Bjargey chose Selfoss
We built this house 2008. Grund is located in the heart of the popular Golden Circle. Close to Reykjavik, the capital and very short to get service at Selfoss and Hveragerdi. A lot of things to see and do in the neighborhood but also an excellent place to do just nothing but relax and enjoy the nature.
What makes this House unique
The size and quality of Grund and the location makes it unique.

Great place, very good host.
Our overall experience of staying at this property was great. We were a group of three couples and two kids. The house was spacious enough to accommodate all of us without any trouble.
The beds (mattresses) could've been better in all the rooms (except the master bedroom upstairs). Our couple friends had some trouble with that. There was a minor issue with the gas tank and then with the oven - Thorsteinn offered to reimburse us for the gas tank, and sent over a technician to fix the oven.
The hottub was one of the best things at the property. It was large enough to accommodate 6-7 people. The shower stalls were clean and sufficient for a group as large as ours. The kitchen was well equipped and had most of the things we needed.
Selfoss is about 15-20mins by road, and has the grocery stores, gas station and restaurants - all that you need.
The garbage collection center is about 15 minutes drive from the place, so make sure you plan for a few trips there based on your need.
We'll definitely look forward to coming here again.
Great place in a beautiful location. Host was easy to work with
Great place to stay when visiting Iceland.
One room was not made up. No sheets or pillow cases.
Hot tub was not hot, just warm.
Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend as a good place to stay when visiting Iceland. Iceland is a beautiful country and we had a great vacation.
Thank you for you review. We always make up the same number of beds as the number of guests arriving. If our guests want to use different beds, they can of course change.
Regarding the hot tub it is quite easy to warm it up if you want to. I send every guest instructions before arrival how to do that. We tell our guests to be in contact if they have any question.
Great to hear that you had a good time, that is most important.
We stayed at the property with 8 adults celebrating my husband's 50th birthday in Iceland. It was the perfect location. Close enough to Selfoss to go grocery shopping, but secluded enough to have privacy and quiet. The kitchen was well equipped and we made most of our food at the house.
We were a bit concerned about sharing one shower, but since you will not run out of hot water, it was no problem at all.
We all had a wonderful time.
Gorgeous home on the Golden Circle
The home is a beautiful respite from all of the activities we enjoyed in Iceland. We were a party of 6 and had more than enough room. It’s a well-appointed home - very comfortable. Owners responded very quickly with any questions. I highly recommend this home!
Peaceful Retreat Perched on a Hill
Truly Icelandic in spirit, with a nice free flowing hot tub that was plenty warm, waterfall showers, a great communal space for sharing and dining and private bedrooms for when we all wanted our privacy. Super quiet neighborhood and close to lots of the main attractions including the National Park.
The house is located only 50 minutes drive from Reykjavik in a quiet area close to lake Thingvallavatn, a part of the golden circle (one of the must see places in Iceland). Its closest village Selfoss is appox 15 min driving with all services needed. Excellent hiking all around and only 20 min drive from lake Laugarvatn. Geysir and Gullfoss two of most visited sights are not far. Two good 18 hole golf courses 7 km (Öndverdarnes) and 13 km (Kidjaberg) away.
