We loved staying at this amazing house which was even better than the pictures. It had all the necessary amenities for our visit of 5 people (2 bedrooms with double beds and a large sofa bed, dishwasher, washing machine, plenty of towels, and the list goes on). The location was excellent, just a 30 minute drive from Reykjavik and about 40 minutes to some of the Golden Circle. We received good personal recommendations from Jóhann about the local attractions and would highly recommend staying here.

This is an incredible option for seeing sights around the golden circle if you are traveling by car and especially if you plan on cooking and eating at home. If this fits your situation, do not stay in Reykjavik or at a hotel – this is a much, much better option and probably a much better value, especially if you cook at home. The house is new, spacious, comfortable and well-appointed with everything you need. We especially appreciated the fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer. The house is ideal for families. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children aged 10 and 12 and we stayed 5 days. Our hosts were very accommodating and helpful with information about the house and about sightseeing recommendations. The location is about 30 minutes south of Reykjavik, and driving distances to the golden circle sights are about the same as from Reykjavik. There are not many restaurant options nearby, although there is one geothermal heat cooking restaurant in Hveragerði (6 km) and some options in Selfoss (19 km). Plan on grocery shopping at the Kronan chain of supermarkets in Selfoss or in Reykjavic on the way from the airport. The closer Bonus grocery market in Hveragerði and the adjacent bakery will disappoint travelers accustomed to U.S. supermarkets. The house has a very large main open area including the kitchen, family room and an alcove with corner couch facing a television. There are lots of windows and the view is very nice – the Eyjafjallajökull volcano that erupted in 2010 can be seen on clear days. There is a spacious laundry room with washer, dryer, sink and a clothes drying rack. There is also a pantry that has various essentials, such as paper towels. We slept two people comfortably in each of the two bedrooms – the beds have latex foam mattresses. The second bedroom has a single bed with a pull out portion that makes it into a queen size bed. We didn’t need or use the pull out couch in the family room. The bathroom is spacious, with a large walk-in shower and soaking tub. There were plenty of towels, shampoo, body wash and conditioner. We used the large gas grill on the deck for grilling pork chops one night and probably should have used it more – it worked great. Wifi internet is supplied through 100 Mbps optical fiber. The house is just off of a quiet rural road that leads northeast to Hveragerði,6 km away. This was a great stay, and we highly recommend this listing.

Me and my husband have been using AirBnB for some years now and we have only been using it for our travel. Now for the first time we are going to try to give people chance to visit our country with a beautiful house for rent. Great view all over the country.
