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 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, 42" 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 heating system inside the house as well.
Master bedroom has a queen size bed with a very comfortable IQ-care mattress and some space for 2 mattresses 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 42? 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" just 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, but in Selfoss I like "Menan" which is an eastern restaurant across the major hotel on your right as you cross the big bridge. Still there are other 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.
