Beautiful Country Home
This home is very well done with high-end amenities and tasteful decor. Plenty of room for the whole family. The host was very helpful and provided recommendations of places to visit in the area. Selfoss is a great town itself with a variety of grocery stores and shops. We had a great experience and will definitely book this home again.
Fantastic house in a great location.
Stayed 3 nights in early August. Two families: 4 adults, 2 children. The kids loved the hot tub and feeding the horses apples. Great location near Reykjavik, the Golden Circle and the South Coast. It was nicely furnished and clean, with lots of windows to enjoy the views. Valur was there when we arrived and showed us how to use some of the appliances/technology, which was very helpful. Highly recommend this VRBO!
The property was outstanding.
We enjoyed being out of the city in a country setting. The view of the mountains from the home is outstanding. The house was equipped with everything we needed. We had a little trouble using the applicances (i.e. cooktop, dryer, microwave/convection) as I was not familiar with the brand, the induction style cooktop, or the micro/convection style oven, youtube came in handy to help us. The home itself is lovely, the hot tube was a nice end to a long day. Everything you need is close by in the town of Selfoss, such as restaurants, gas stations and grocery stores. I would caution families with small children, this house is full of beautiful items, that can be easily broken. We experienced this first hand when my 20 year old son was reaching for food over the kitchen island and broke an expensive vase. But overall we loved the home, the horses and the surroundings. Iceland is wonderful, being from Texas we absolutely loved the cool weather in the middle of July!
It was a wonderful stay, fantastic accommodations, and attentive host!
The pictures on line were nice, but the property far exceeded our expectations! We had a group of 7 of which three were couples and one was 15 years old. There was plenty of room to sleep. The beds were very comfortable and provided privacy for everyone. There were multiple sitting areas in the house which was nice so we could spread out. The hot tub on the deck overlooked a very scenic pasture with Icelandic horses and mountains in the background. It was nice to end the day out there. The place seemed very new, and all appliances were great. The location was phenomenal. It was right in the Golden Circle, shortened the time to head toward the Southern Coast and only 45 minutes to Raykiovik. The host was very attentive and provided nice suggestions for places to see. The only thing I would recommend, and is minor, it would be nice to have some of those suggestions in a notebook at the house. You will be impressed with the technology he has in his appliances and TV. I wish we would have stayed at this house longer. I would highly recommend this VRBO. Thank you for making our trip so nice.
The famous Mount Hekla Volcano and Eyjafjallajokull Glacier can both be seen from the property. The Golden Circle, the most popular tourist attraction in Iceland is only 5 min. drive from the house. This Circle includes Geysir, Gullfoss, Thingvellir National Park and the Nesjavellir Geothermal area. A short cut road to the world famous Blue Lagoon is also nearby.
