About this listing
A beautiful and cosy 3 bedroom summerhouse in the south of Iceland.
From here you can discover all the wonders of Iceland. Only minutes away from the beautiful waterfall Gullfoss and the world famous Geysir hot spring. A house with a fantastic view over a calm river. The house includes a bathhouse with a jacuzzi.
The house can accommodate up to 6 persons. The kitchen is very well equipped for nice home cooking. The house is in the positioned near organic farms that grow vegetables and herbs known for that area and in walking distance from a small children's zoo with Icelandic animals.
Jakob provided clear and detailed instructions for the check in and out process. Great summerhouse, really comfortable and well equipped. Great view from the living room and we really enjoyed the use of the hot tub. Taking out the trash was a bit of a hassle as the area we were in, Laugarus, didn't have a trash disposal area, but thankfully we had a car and we managed alright. Overall, great stay. Thanks Jakob!
Jakob met us with the keys and gave us very easy directions to the house. He was very nice and informative. He was also nice enough to provide a crib for us. The house is a relatively short drive from lots of things to see in the Golden Circle. There are public pools and hidden springs in abundance in the area. Make sure to ask a local about the "secret" pool because the directions are difficult to explain. The house is located in the town(?) of Skalholt. There are shops 10-20 minutes away by car in neighboring towns.
Jakob met us in Reykjavik and got us pointed in the right direction. We were new to airbnb and international travel. Found lots of things different from the US that caught us off guard, but we will be better prepared next time.
The house was an ideal central location for seeing the wonders Iceland, but there is so much to see. Coming back to the hot tub was always ideal after spending a lot of time in the cold outdoors, snowed on us once or twice.
We appreciated the home and had a great time in Iceland.
The summer house is a great place to stay! It is very cozy and very well equiped with all the comfort you need. A special highlight is the fantastic hot pot in the pool house and the barbecue and the fantastic view from the living room. The beds are also very comfortable.
Jakob is very kind and even met us in Reykjavik to explain the way to the house and details of the house and gave us all the Information we needed.
Thank you Jakob, it was a great holiday and we certainly come back!
The house has all commodities you need for your stay.
The view from the house over the river is very nice.
The house was beautiful and comfortable, just as described. The surroundings were secluded and idyllic, with great views. The location was great for reaching the tourist sites in the Golden Circle. The hot tub was wonderful. We arrived with two extra people, and the host's son made a special trip to the house to provide us with extra sheets and towels.
Een mooi zomerhuis op een schitterende locatie. Het uitzicht over de rivier was prachtig. The golden circle ligt vlak bij. Onze dochters hebben paard gereden in Arnes (de eerste manege vanaf weg 326) en beleefden een schitterende tocht en galoppeerden door rivieren.
Ook de vogelrots is goed te bereiken, evenals Porsmork en landmannerlaugar (wel een barre tocht en alleen met een 4x4 te bereiken).
