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, Kerið and Nesjavellir.
Located just 45 min. drive from Reykjavik in Iceland´s most ambient summerhouse areas, 10 min. drive from Selfoss. Great Northern lights scenery. Hot tube, a fire place, 42" Tv and a CD player, outdoor facilities like chairs & BBQ.

The space

Travellers love my house for its unique design, the peaceful and sunny area in the back terrace. Due to its position the area is great for looking at the sky & watch the Northern lights. The house is warm and cosy at your arrival and a big hot tub is ready to use as well.

Master bedroom has a queen size bed with a very comfortable 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 and it is pretty cheap to get.

Guest access

The whole house for yourself. No interruptions.

Interaction with guests

I am available through telephone and emails if anything comes up or you have questions. I have a fast response rate.

Other things to note

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.

Big let down. Not worth the price. We paid less with more amenities at other places. We had high expectations due to the location but were disappointed. Half the lights don't work, jacuzzi was not working, no towels provided, dishes were dirty and coffe maker was gross. When being charged a cleaning fee one would expect cleanliness, this was not the case.

Response from Árný:
I am sorry to hear you are not satisfied. On the other hand there are some issues I can respond to; On my listing I do advertise a hot tub, which is warm and ready at arrival, which it was. It is not advertised as a jacuzzi, there is a difference between those two. There were towels provided, they were on the drawer in the master bedroom at arrival and today when I came, the same towels were hanging in the bathroom, so I do not understand this comment really.

This gorgeous A-frame cottage had spectacular views and was the perfect distance from the city (about 45 min from Reykjavik), but close enough to some great sites on the golden circle and restaurants. The host was attentive and quick to open the gate for us when we began and ended our stay, which was appreciated. The hot tub was a well-enjoyed perk along with the fireplace. My fiance especially enjoyed the antique coffee maker. For just two people there was plenty of space and could definitely sleep more. I highly recommend staying at this house to get the full Icelandic experience!

A private cottage nestled in the trees. Beautiful view and conveniently located. We were able to venture into most of the southwest parts of the country. It has most of what you need to spend a week in a beautiful, unspoiled country. No USA type coffee maker but we really didn't miss it. There is at least 3 great places for coffee/breakfast within 10 minutes. Selfoss is a great town and is just minutes away by car. They have an info center, money exchange and the best coffee/bookstore!

A great place to stay to see the Golden Circle sights. We spent 3 nights here, enjoying the quiet, and cozy cabin. You are away from the city, but close enough to quickly get to the services you need. The hot tub was relaxing after a day of touring around. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is small, but fine for preparing meals. All the spices, and utensils are there. We would recommend this quiet, relaxing cabin to anyone.
