The house and the property are lovely. Despite an error in our booking showing fewer people than we were, the owners were gracious and quickly setup an additional bedroom. The owners responded quickly to the few questions we had despite not being close by. The peaceful setting and the central location were wonderful. We definitely recommend staying here.
Johannes and Sigrun gave us a hearty welcome and some homemade bread. The house is awesome and very quite, all you hear is nature. You live away from the trouble of the world and can enjoy the company of the Elves, We spent a wonderful time here and enjoyed the spirit of Iceland. You can also enjoy the giant hot tub and have some delicious food from the grill. The location is great and you reach many sights in a short day trip.
We stayed here for two nights last week, and I have to say it really is lovely. The owners met us on arrival and beforehand were always quick to reply to any questions. The bedrooms are not massive but are more than adequate and very comfortable. It has a super hot tub and there's everything you need. I Would defintely stay here again, and highly recommend it.
(one thing to help others, it took a little to find it first time but you turn by the blue sign that says "Reykjavellir, Rimi, Sunnuflöt & Godatún". This turn is a few hundred metres before Reykholt if coming up frn the south. Follow the gravel road for a little way keeping left until you see the metal gate, the house is the third after
Many thanks again to the owners for a lovely stay :-)
We had a lovely stay at Johannes' House by the Golden Circle. We were out of the city, but the house was a great jumping off point for many day adventures in the southern region of Iceland. The house itself was more than we expected. The house was very clean and stocked with everything we needed to grill, relax in the hot tub, and visit with family. The pictures don't do the home justice!
