What a perfect house

Review submitted: July 12, 2014   Date of arrival: July 11, 2014

What a beautiful house and beautiful country! The house is perfect and we loved the views, the sauna and the hot tub.
For other guests; we recommend the hike in the river in Reykjadalur in Hveragerdi, the hike in the Krisuvik area (near the Blue Lagoon) and the dog sledding, dogsledding.is
Elin, thank you for the hospitality. All the best wishes

Perfect hideaway where nature meets luxury

Review submitted: April 6, 2014   Date of arrival: February 15, 2014

My friend and I rented Elin and Gislis house for one week of recreation - our first time in Iceland. We very much enjoyed the luxury of their home, which is on one hand the stylish decoration and all the amenities of the villa (sauna, hot pot, super kitchen, windows all around) but also the setting in the middle of nature and close to all excursions that we've planed. Elin and Gisli were brilliant hosts, picked us up at the airport, were always there for us and shared their love for this beautiful country with us by recommending special places to visit. It felt just like staying in a friends house. They even left us a mobile phone so reaching them was easy and local phone calls cheap. We ended up staying a second week because everything was so convenient. Iceland is definately worth coming back - and if so we will stay with Elin and Gisli again. Thanks, you two, for sharing you paradise with us. Hope to see you again! P.s. love your little Iceland book...

Owners response: Good to hear that you enjoyed Iceland and the stay in our house - it was great meeting and having you. Hope to see you again one day. Cheers, Elin and Gísli

Excellent

Review submitted: March 18, 2014   Date of arrival: March 11, 2014

Fantastic stay, totally peaceful, great location and gave a perfect taste of Iceland.
Close to Geysir and Gulfoss and shops at Selfoss. Blue Lagoon an hour and 1/2 away and Reyk 45 minutes. The house has everything you need and has great glass window so you have wonderful views. Because of Icelands natural hot water the house is very warm and the hot tub is a fabulous place to spend a few hours at the end of the day.
Elin is a great host meeting you at the airport and escorting you to her house. Thanks Elin for a lovely time, we hope to see you again.

Owners response: It was a pleasure having you and :) What a coincidence when we met in the city center of Reykjavik. Hope to see you again, either in Iceland or Berlin.
