3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Beautiful Mountain Views

H51 is located in the great geothermal town Hveragerði only 40km away from Reykjavík.

The house is modern and bright 2,210 sq ft / 205 sq m with an open living room, dining and kitchen area with seat for 10- 12 people. There are 2 sliding doors to the garden from this family room. The garden is wonderful and the terrace is spacious and marvelous for an outdoor enjoyment, including a hot tub, a grill and garden furniture. It has 3 spacious rooms (sleeps 6-8) and 2 bathrooms, a laundry room and a Garage, which we are not renting out but there is a parking place in the front of the house for 3 cars. The master bedroom is big and has walk-in closet and bathroom with shower. The other rooms have a double bed and two beds. Also we have to more beds to put in the rooms if there are more than 6 people staying in the house. The neighborhood is peaceful and beautiful with nice houses and Mountain Views all around.

When traveling (40 km) from Reykjavík, Hveragerði can be seen from Kambar, the edge of the mountain. Hveragerði is known as the greatest hot springs capital of the world. Strokes of steam rise from the earth all around and in the middle of the town is a geothermal park.

Hveragerði is also known as the flourishing town. Green forest areas are all around the town with very nice walking paths.

Villa très confortable idéalement située

  • 5 of 5
Les prestations annoncées étaient bien au rendez-vous. L'annonce nous cachait cependant l'accueil chaleureux que Kristin nous a réservé. Les propriétaires ont en effet été aux petits soin avec nous et nos 3 enfants.
La location est propre, bien entretenue et dispose de tout l'équipement pour un confort optimal.
Idélament située nous avons pu rayonner sur le cercle d'or et au delà...
La commune de Hveragerdi est très jolie et pourvue de tout les commerces dont nous avions besoin, y compris une très belle randonnée vers la rivière chaude où nous rêvons aujourd'hui de retourner.
Nous remercions ici Kristin et son mari pour l'attention qu'ils ont apportée pour que notre séjour se passe pour le mieux.

a stunning house

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful, well equipped, very clean and modern. Having the hot tub, massage beds, a huge bath tub and brilliant power shower was like having our very own spa. The house is well placed for visiting the main tourist spots in South West Iceland, and the hot river walk from Hveragerdi was definitely a highlight of our visit. Kristin and Wally were very welcoming and helpful.

A great place for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5
We are an Italian family with 2 boys (8 and 10) and loved the house!
It has all the things you need for a very comfortable stay... Great open kitchen, wifi, speakers to attach mobile phone or laptop :-), TV, hot tub, easy park in front and plenty of space.
All bedrooms are very big, very comfortable bathrooms and convenient washing machine/dryer.
Great location - within 1 hour drive of plenty of attractions (Reykjavik, Geisir, Gullfoss, Blue lagoon, the coast ...) and less than 2 hrs from Skorgafoss, Vik and Vestmannaeyjar.
The village offer a simple supermarket, a nice pool with hot tubs and a lovely gym, a nice expo on earthquake and tourist information point.
Within 1 hour walk from Hveragerdi you can enjoy bathing in hot river - a not miss!
There are also few restaurants in the village... But after trying one we preferred cooking at home (and enjoying the big open kitchen :-).
The owners (Kristin and Ashamar) have been very kind and helpful. When our kids lost few little toys under the bathtub, they kindly came, unscrew few wooden planks and helped us to get access to the toys.
A great place for a great holiday. Definitevely a 5 stars.

Wanted for nothing, Highly recommend a stay here.

  • 5 of 5
Delightful house to stay in, wanted for nothing, very well maintained.
Family group, Two adults and Two children.
Owners Kristín & Valgarð were very welcoming, met us at the property giving us good info regarding the property and the area we we're staying in.
Perfect location for visiting all the places of interest in the Reykjavik area and south of the Island, (on the Golden circle route).
A must do when visiting Hveragerði, The Hot River walk. 4hr round trip (with a swim) up a very interesting river valley
All the restaurants in the area were good. couple of great bakery's.
We would highly recommend a stay here.

Many Thanks
Iain, Elaine, Ross and Caitlin.

H51 is in the green geothermal town Hveragerði only half an hour drive from Reykjavík. Hveragerði is located in middle of most interesting places in the south Iceland. Kerið, Þingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir are less than an hour drive (The Golden circle).

The Blue Lagoon, Hekla Volcano, Eyjafjallajökull, Jökulsárlon, Landeyjahöfn the ferry to Vestman islands, Waterfalls like Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss are all about an hour drive from Hveragerði. The geothermal, hot spring area in the city center is open every day during the summer. There you can go for a clay foot bath and soak your feet in one of the hot springs, or just boil eggs in one. The river, Varmá lies through the town and is one of the best trout fishing rivers in the south Iceland. Also it is nice to watch the trout jumping up the waterfall Reykjafoss.

There are great walking, biking and riding trails in the town, all around the town and into the mountains valley where you will find warm natural pools and rivers for bathing. The geothermal heated swimming pool at Laugarskarð is open all year round. It has beautiful surroundings, with hot baths, whirlpools, a natural sauna and a fitness center. The bank, supermarket, bar and restaurants and the swimming pool are only 10-15 minutes walk from the house. A beautiful and interesting 9 hole golf course in Gufudalur Hveragerði is only 5 minutes drive from the house. Also there is a another small 9 hole golf course at Hotel Örk only 100 metres from the house.
