Have an extraordinary Icelandic experience while staying at our beautiful & peaceful summerhouse. Watch the northern lights dancing in the sky from the outdoor hottub while relaxing after an adventurous day around the Golden Circle (Gullfoss, Geysir). The summerhouse is in a gated area 7 minutes from Geysir and 10 minutes from Laugarvatn.

Nice cottage with hot pott, conveniently located but hardly to find according to the description. We had not given up on the search and search for almost 1 hour. It would have been easy to write after the parking lot from Bruarfoss waterfall next driveway with blue sign left. After the barrier 1st street right about 300m to the green house. No matter. The house is comfortably furnished and wonderfully warm. The beds are very comfortable. The bedrooms are small and there is no wardrobe in the room. The kitchen is well equipped but some are old and belonged redone. Unfortunately, nobody was there who instructed us. Thus, we were dependent on ourselves with the technology, but also we have managed. Conclusion: Price / performance ratio fits in any case. Many things belonged to repaired or redone. The location was perfect for us to experience the many beautiful things and pure nature.

Dear Jürgen We are so sad to hear that you had problem finding the summerhouse, i had hoped my guidence was sufficience, but thanks for the tips! Will add this info for the next guest. I try to be on the sideline if anything comes up so that said, its unfortune that I didnt hear from you to help you out with anything that might come up during your stay. But at the same time I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay and hopefully you enjoyed our wonderful surrounding and of course Iceland. Best regards Karen

Lovely summer house perfectly situated in the golden circle. All the main attractions are a short distance away. The owner was so helpful. The house is warm and cozy and a perfect place to unwind.

Stayed here for a week while exploring south west Iceland. Had some issues finding the house in the dark and ended up sleeping in laugvartn but found it the next day. Once there was a great base to see all the main sights in the golden circle. House was very spacious, could have slept at least 7 even though there were only 2 of us. Great hot tub, games and DVD selection!!! Would recommend.

We had a very enjoyable five day stay at this location in October. The summerhouse was very comfortable for three adults and had everything we needed. We were given good location instructions by the owner and had no problems finding it. The owner gave us her contact information in case of problems and followed-up after our stay to ensure that all was as expected. The area is scenic and quiet. It is about 1h 45 mins from Keflavik airport and is very well situated for visiting Thingvellir, Geysir and Gullfoss. There is a small grocery store nearby in Laugarvatn and larger, less expensive stores in Selfoss and Hveragerdi. We’d definitely recommend this as a base for visiting South-West Iceland.

booked this summer house with Karen over a year ago and had a number of emails of Karen the service i have received as been of the highest quality. The house was about a hour away from Rejkjavik but the drive is excellent you go down the 36 thru a beautiful national park. You come to a little town Laugarvatn which is about 10min of the house which leaves you in beautiful part of Iceland. When pulling up to the house it is with about 5 other houses but you are not over looked and you are not to close. It is well presented and when you go inside it is warm and very homely. There was ever thing we needed from bedding to all amenities that you could ask for. It was clean and well kept. There was a guest book which gave the highest appraisal.

How to get there
From Reykjavík You drive toward Laugarvatn, drive through it and keep on driving for around 7-10 minutes, and than you are in the right area of the summerhouse. There are 2 ways to drive to Laugarvatn, you will have to choose one. First there is the basic route where almost everyone drive, that is the mainroad nr 1, There you drive toward Selfoss, just before entering Selfoss you take a left into the country on road nr. 35 all the way to you cross road nr 37 to Laugarvatn, through it for 710 more minutes and there you take a left into our area called Reykjarskógur. (Gunnarsbraut) there you see the gate you need to enter with the code I have written here below. Then it is the other road through Þingvellir, so if you are not in a hurry on the day you arrive and you are here in the day ...
