Selfoss guest house description

This cottage is located in South Iceland, in a peaceful place in the countryside, right by the Golden Circle and only 50 min drive from Reykjavík City Center. You will find this beautiful house both spacious and comfortable.

The cottage has four bedrooms. Two bedrooms provide sleeping accommodation for two people, one bedroom provides sleeping accommodation for one adult and one child and the fourth bedroom sleeps one person. There is a wardrobe in the biggest bedroom and all other bedrooms have large drawers for guests to put their clothes and other things in.

The bathroom has a nice shower and a washing machine.

The kitchen and the living room are open plan, giving the cottage a bright and spacious feel. All common kitchen utensils are in the kitchen including a fridge, freezer, toaster and coffee maker for the convenience of guests.

In the living room there is a sofa, a TV with a DVD player and a beautiful fireplace. The windows are tall, allowing plenty of natural light to saturate the living space. These gorgeous windows provide a lovely view as they are overlooking the circle of mountains nearby.

There is also a cosy living room upstairs.

A large wooden deck surrounds the cottage so you can catch the sun all day and also enjoy the midnight sun in the summertime.

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About: My name is Bragi. I bought this piece of land in 2008 to build a summerhouse. The location seemed perfect, not to far from Kópavogur, where I live, and surrounded with beautiful landscape. The next few years, with some help of course, I built and furnished this house.

          Why Selfoss:
          The location is ideal for people who want to take short day trips to various beautiful places in South and West Iceland, as to the Reykjanes peninsula. The house is literally located on the Golden Circle, yet it is in a private and quiet area.

          The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
          The house is very bright and spacious, recently furnished and has a very large wooden deck all around. There is amazing bird life in the area. Just a few minute drive to the beautiful golf course at Kiðjaberg and an equally short drive to the nice swimming pool at Borg.
