“Perfect house to spend Christmas in”
Reviewed February 16, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed here for a week at Christmas and had the most amazing time. The house is very well equipped with all amenities you could wish for. The hot tub was a complete bonus. Always really warm and a fab place to view the aurora from!!
The house is close to Gulfoss falls and the Golden Circle. All in all a perfect house for an Icelandic vacation

“Brilliant accomodatiln”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

At first glance you may think that this Accomodation is expensive.

Don't think that!

This is simply stunning! A view to die for. Hot tub with quiet solitude.

Easily one of the best holiday rentals I have stayed in.

Just do it!

“Wonderful, luxurious house in a magical setting”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This is one of the best holiday houses we have ever stayed in. The house is designed by a well-known Icelandic architect, and is very modern and spacious with many windows to have optimal contact with the woodland outside. The special viewing bridge was created for views of the Hekla volcano, which we had the fortune to see on a clear morning. The house is equipped with everything you need and has a great outdoor hot tub on the veranda.
Björn, the owner and host, offered us a warm welcome and was always quick to respond to any queries or needs. He really made an effort to make sure that everything worked perfectly, showing that he cares about his guests.

“Amazing house in great central location...”
Reviewed September 4, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This house just outdoes all the others ones for rent. It's fabulous in a lot of ways. Clean, spacious, beautifully designed, great views, hot tub, great view and central to a lot of things.

We did expect that after seeing the pictures and other reviews, even with the expectations it lived up to them.

Not much else to say about the property that hasn't been said, you are lucky to stay here if you can.

What I can add that one of the best things we saw in Iceland, was based on advise from the owner who was very friendly.

So for others who are staying here, some sites worth visiting if you like less crowds but amazing nature. Closeby too! Just google them to find the details.
