Close to the Golden Circle, the house is located at a quiet position where you have total serenity. Short distances to all major south Icelandic attractions like Gullfoss and Geysir, Þingvellir National park and Þingvellir Lake is just minutes drive away as well as Kerið and Nesjavellir.
Location is just 45 minutes drive from Reykjavik in Iceland´s most ambient summerhouse areas, Grímsnes, 10 minutes drive from Selfoss.
A comfortable queen size bed, an extra room with bunk meds, upstairs is a place for kids to sleep. Outside is a big and warm Hot tube ready at your arrival, outdoor facilities like chairs & BBQ, a flatscreen Tv, radio and a CD player.

Travellers love my house for its unique design, the peaceful and sunny area in the back terrace. The area is great for looking at the sky for watching the Northern lights, due to its position and the lack of light pollution in the nights in this area. A big hot tub is warm at your arrival and the same goes with the house inside.

Master bedroom has a queen size bed and space for an extra mattress on the floor. Second bedroom has bunk beds. On the upper bedroom there is space for 2 mattresses which could be a fun place for grown kids to sleep at.

The living room/dining room has a nice sofa, a fire place, a kitchen table for 5 people, a Cd player and some Cd´s. Another room leading to the back terrace contains a big sofa with a Tv.

The kitchen is equipped with 2 stoves and an oven, fridge with a freezer, microwave oven, toaster and all kitchen ware you need.

Outside at the back terrace you enjoy Iceland´s beautiful nature and sunset with total peace and quiet. There is located a spacious hot tub to relax in after a good day, a BBQ and outside facilities to sit in and relax.

The cottage does not include wi-fi but it is within 3G reach. Some get a portable wifi from NOVA company in Iceland ant it is pretty cheap to get.

Grocery shopping and restaurants:
Selfoss town is only 8 min drive away, where you can get all service and groceries you need, its easy to find one like "Krónan" on your right as you drive into the town.
There is a nice Pizza restaurant in "Þrastarlundur" shop by the bridge just like 2 min drive from my house, you can get some groceries there as well. There are many local restaurants in Selfoss on the major street which will be easy for you to find one.
In Hveragerði town you find a "Bónus" where you can get groceries at the cheapest in Iceland.

WINTER: During winter months, expecially february, march and april: I want to recommend you to rent a 4WD during your stay in Iceland. Weather can be unpredictable in Iceland with snow storms and fast changes and you do not want to be stuck on roads with an unequipped car in Icelandic winter time. Its also a good idea to keep a tire fluid in you car (can be bought at gas stations) to be able to clean tires if there is snow. Main roads are cleaned every day, but good to check Icelandic weather channels online to see if there are any warnings about closed roads. We wanna be on the safe side. The roads around the south of Iceland are cleared pretty fast but the road within the gate to our house is not cleared every day! It is also a bit narrow, so please drive safely there if there is snow.

Had a really lovely stay. Lodge is cosy and great location. Minor niggles were the oven dials didn't match up properly and couldn't get the hot tub very warm.

We finally got a plumber to come by. The oven/hot tub has some new pipes now and all works well :)
Thank you for your visit, glad you had good times.

The house was very nice and centrally located. Had a great time.
we thought there was a lack of Linens, so be prepared for that, otherwise very comfortable

Nice, quiet location with easy parking. Good views, even when all other neighbouring properties occupied on a bank holiday. Convenient for exploring the usual southern routes.

Got the impression that money comes rather too easily. Hot tub nice and warm on arrival, as it works off the house heating system (which you don't want on in summer!). It never warmed up beyond tepid after that,rendering it unusable, even after turning the heating up. The tub and water were also in dire need of a good clean, which seems to have been too much to ask. Tiny kitchen, useless small tabletop oven/hob with faulty switches, and a heating system set below the main bedroom, causing irritating all-night noise. The electrics in places were in need of tidying up, if not actually particularly dangerous.

Við vorum 5 í bústaðnum og það fór mjög vel um okkur, staðsetningin er góð og samskipti við leigusala gengu mjög vel :) Á risinu eru litlar svalir sem slógu í gegn hjá unglingunum tveim, potturinn sló í gegn hjá okkur fullorðna fólkinu og við mælum með þessum stað :)

It was such a beautiful house. The views were amazing and the hot tub was a fantastic added bonus. The owner was nothing but helpful. We will be back one day for sure. Thank you.

Nice, quiet and privat spot in a secluded area. All you need within reach of 10 km. We felt very comfortable. Great view, we even saw polar light. The absolute highlight was the hot tube.

Lovely remote cottage in the woods and an ideal base for exploring the south and west. Warm and cosy all the time as the heating is on 24/7 but bring wood and matches if you want to use the stove for that extra snug evening. With thanks to the friendly helpful owner.we enjoyed our stay. Recommended.

Das war der ideale Start für unseren Islandurlaub. Wir genossen im urig gebauten Haus mit viel Platz 8 Nächte und kamen abends gern "nach Hause". Der Tag begann mit einem Blick zum Hausberg, wir beobachteten, wie sich dort die Wolken verhingen und lernten, Wetterprognosen abzugeben. Es gab alles, um auch etwas aufwendigere Menüs zu kochen und abends und bei Regen haben wir uns gemütlich zusammengesetzt oder in den Pool. Zum Vermieter gab es netten Kontakt - herzliche Grüße und vielen Dank!
Wenigstens Grundkenntnisse in Englisch und ein Telefon werden benötigt, damit man Kontakt aufnehmen kann zum Parkschranke öffnen.

This summerhouse was the ideal start for our Iceland vacation. We enjoyed the rustically built house with plenty of space for 8 nights and came "home" in the evening. The day started with a view to the local mountain, watching the clouds there and learning how could be the weather. There was everything to cook little menus and in the evening and while it rains we used the warm pool. Best regards and thank you to the owner, it was a nice contact!

Nice place to stay, we had to turn the radiators down to sleep, else we woke up too hot. We really enjoyed the log fire even when the snow storm was raging. Saw the northern lights from the back veranda. Great base to explore from although you need to be careful of the roads in the snow. 4x4 in the winter is a must.
