vacation rental description

In Iceland it’s illegal to rent out house/apartment to visitors without having necessary licenses. This is to ensure the safety of tourists and to make sure they receive what they are paying for. The Health Authority, Fire Department, Sheriff and Building Supervisor have to give consent so house/apartment get license.

We at Hofdatun are pleased to say that we have permission from those parties and are fully licensed vacancy house. Certificates are at display for our guests verification.

We are also very pleased to say that our guest get good discount of rental cars from Geysir rental cars in Keflavik airport

THIS BEAUTIFUL HOUSE with 8 akers of land is in the heart of south Iceland. It only takes 15 min. to drive to nearest town, Selfoss and 50 min. to Reykjavík or Thingvellir national park. Then its ideal to take the golden circel tour and drive to Gullfoss and Geysir. All around the old Geysir are more spouting hot springs, such as the ever lively Strokkur (the butter Churn), which erupts every 3-5 minutes.

The house and its surroundings is wonderful in all seasons.

At Hofdatun is a chicken coop so every morning you get fresh eggs for breakfast. During the summer time there is also 6 very gentle Icelandic horses on the field next to the house. You can take supervised riding tours on them. During the winter you can meet with the horses in their winter fields or in the stable. In the winter riding tours are arranged at nearby horse rental. We also have 4-6 pregnant mares that will give birth between june 1 and august 15 2014. Witnessing a birth of a foal is something you will never forget!

In the garden you get fresh vegetable and herbs during the harvesting season. In the garden you also have large hot tub that is wonderful to bath in winter as well as summer.

In Hofdatun are 4 bedrooms where 7 adults can sleep. Baby beds can be provided free of charge.

The view from Hofdatun is very wide, you can see the volcanic Islands Vestmannaeyjar as well as Ingolfsfjall and Eyjafjallajokull

In South Iceland you find all kind off entertainment. Among many other things you can enjoy art in museums and galleries, take a walk in prehistorical places or go surfing or river rafting (for the brave one!).

traveler reviews for this selfoss house rental

A Great Place to Stay in Southwest Iceland

Review submitted: September 1, 2014   Date of arrival: August 12, 2014

We spent eight really wonderful days at Thorey's house in August 2014. The location is great for visiting all south, southwest and even southeast Iceland - we managed to visit as far east as Jokulsarlon and Skaftafell on our day trips. The attractions in the Golden Circle, as well Vik, Thorsmork, Reykjavik, Blue Lagoon, and many, many other places are a relatively short driving distance from the house. It is also conveniently located very close to the town of Selfoss with large grocery stores, banks, restaurants, etc. The house itself is very comfortable, and very quiet, surrounded by farmland. Our two girls (age 11 and 13) loved riding horses with Thorey, playing with two very friendly dogs and feeding the chickens. Overall, a great place to stay in Iceland.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing

Owners response: Thank you for this great review, it was so nice to meet you all :)

Warm recommendation for Thorey+Hofdatun(TripAdvis)

Review submitted: June 3, 2014   Date of arrival: September 10, 2013

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago for a stay in September 2013 NEW

Although our visit to Iceland was short, we had an amazing stay. The location of the cottage makes it so easy to visit all the main sites in just a couple of days. The house is lovely, great for even a two families, and Thorey was an incredible host, from delicious homemade icelandic meals to horseback riding. We could not have enjoyed our stay more. if you are looking for a family friendly place away from the city but still in a great location for sightseeing, THIS IS IT! look no further.
