Perfect Home Base
This lovely, spacious home was the perfect home base for our group of 7 during our Icelandic adventure. It was prettier in person than in the photos, and had everything we needed for our stay. We shared many breakfasts and dinners around the large dining room table, enjoyed the sun setting over the lake, and marveled at the Northern Lights not once, but twice, from the yard.
Thor was easy to communicate with and was quick with responses to everything from door lock questions to suggestions on where we could watch the Super Bowl.
All 7 of us agreed that we would stay here again.
The house was perfect for our group of 10. It is very secluded and peaceful. The views of the lake with the mountains in the background were breath taking every single day. We loved enjoying coffee and looking out the windows at them. The hot tub was a perfect touch to hang out in at night and search for the northern lights. Overall we had a great experience, and I highly recommend this place and would not hesitate one bit to stay here again if I return to Iceland.
It was easy to book this property and the arrival instructions were easy to follow. The house is big and lovely; it was clean on arrival.
We did have a couple issues - the stove needed a full reset but with no manual and no idea what to do we couldn’t troubleshoot it ourselves. We also had a bathroom door lock/jam itself. Both issues were fixed about as quickly as you could expect in the period between Christmas and New Years...on a Sunday no less. Thor was easy to message and we appreciated getting the stove back working.
There is just 1 set of keys so if you’re in 2 families like us you have to time opening and locking the gate, and making sure the key holder got to the house first.
We found a kitchen full of most things needed for all meals, except baking trays oddly enough, but items left behind by others were helpful (sugar, salt, olive oil etc). Some rentals clear these types of things out after every hire, we appreciated that this one doesn’t.
Hot tub was gorgeous, as are the views. Netflix and a smart tv in the living room which has lots of seating and a huge dining table.
The house is about an hour from Gullfoss, 25min from the plate tectonics, 20min to Selfoss and a bit over an hour into Reyjavík. There is ample parking outside the house. It certainly feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere, which is exactly what our group was looking for.
I would love to stay here again and would recommend for friends and/or families traveling together.
Schönes Haus am See
Die ruhige Lage direkt am See war wunderschön. Das Haupthaus war vom Wohn und Essbereich sehr groß. Die Schlafzimmer dagegen eher klein und leider ohne Möglichkeiten den Kofferinhalt unterzubringen. Es gab keinen Schrank, da der Platz nicht da war. Jedes Zimmer hatte ein eigenes Badezimmer, was von Vorteil war. Wir waren 2 Familien mit je 2 erwachsenen Kindern (17-21). Leider musste ein Pärchen in das Nebengebäude ziehen, da es im Haupthaus nur 1 Schlafzimmer mit einem Doppelbett gab. Im Nebengebäude gab es dann ein Doppelbett und auch ein Badezimmer und einen Kleiderschrank. Leider roch es dort nach Feuchtigkeit und nach Abfluß. Richtig schön und ein highlight war der Jucuzzi. Schön warm. Wir haben es genossen.
Trotzdem war es ein toller Aufenthalt und wir behalten alles in guter Erinnerung. Island ist eine Reise wert.
Great lake house
Thor was helpful and flexible. He had adequate information for use of the house. Overall a beautiful experience.
I think, without a doubt, the location of this property is its greatest asset. So close to so many points of interest. We loved the layout of the property, even with 10 adults and one toddler it never felt crowded. The hot tub is awesome! The view of the lake and the mountains beyond is spectacular. I also feel the price to rent this property is quite reasonable given what you get. Mostly minor issues on the downside. The starter on the gas grill no longer works and there were no matches or lighters to start it manually. The drier should be a bit heavier duty. Only one dish towel. Having only one set of keys to the gate and house(s) can be inconvenient for larger groups. The main gate to the small community, which had to be kept locked at all times, was also inconvenient, especially in foul weather. As I said, minor issues, but enough of them to prevent a perfect 5.0. If VRBO would let me, I'd rate this a 4.5.
