We found Audur's home very clean and well maintained. Having access to all modern conveniences such as fridge, stove, dishwasher, washer, dryer, microwave, barbecue and WiFi was wonderful. In addition, the beds were very comfortable and the shower was hot and powerful (concerns I had that were better than expected). The hot tub was a welcome addition that we used every night. The views of the country from the house were of outstanding natural beauty. Found the house warm and comforting and the location quiet and peaceful. The location is, also, exceptionally well placed for visiting the Golden Circle attractions. The house was well outfitted with a basic stocked pantry and sundries such as cleaning products, some personal care products and well stocked with linens. There was even a small traditional welcoming snack upon our arrival! Audur was very quick with responses to any questions we had. Overall, a wonderful place to come home to every night after a long day of sightseeing in a beautiful country.

This is a country house that was very suitable for our family of five. There are great views of a glacial river and mountains. The house is set up well with everything that we needed. There is a good kitchen and laundry. The hot tub outside was nice. For city people it was a treat to stay in such a beautiful rural setting.

It is a really nice house, equipped with everything you need, in a beautiful place. We did enjoy our time there very much and actually felt at home. All questions were immediately answered by the hosts, they provided a lot of things we did not even ask for, helped us to get our lost luggage and are very kind and friendly people. Thank you so much for everything!

Audur is a great host. We went just right after Xmas and the kitchen was full of home made Xmas pastry, her favourite chocolate, some croissants for breakfast (we arrived late!). The hot tub is wonderful - I used it in arctic weather (snow, wind, ice all at the same time). The house could be a bit warmer but it is a personal taste how you like the warmth. Audur handled all of our extra needs with the greatest care and flexibility. Once I return again to Iceland I will revisit Audurs place!

From day one of our booking, Audur was in touch with us and answered all our queries with promptness and generosity. The place is beautiful and away from all tourists, at the same time accessible to a bunch of tourist sites. It was just the way we wanted! We wanted to get a taste of how the local Icelanders lived, while we were there. there was a working farm right next to us, where we bought some carrots, potatoes and salmon! We enjoyed the views from her home, as well as all the facilities that were provided in her home. Access to laundry was the biggest help for our group! We packed light on our clothes, and instead packed our Indian food ingredients so that we could save on food and satisfy our palates for vegetarian and spicy food!
