A spacious and bright 110 sq.meter summer mansion in a perfect location in the south of Iceland. Only an hour drive from Reykjavik and half an hour drive from Iceland's major sights, such as the Golden Circle and Thingvellir National Park.

There is a wooden terrace around the house where you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The ground floor has a well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. The dining table is big and seats up to 10 people. The living room is bright and big, and from it, you can go out on the terrace. There is one bedroom on the ground floor with a double bed. There is also a big bathroom with a shower. From the main entrance to your right, there is a laundry room with a washing machine and a dryer.

From the living room, there is an open staircase to the second floor. There you have an open TV and play area. There are also two bedrooms, one with a double bed and a small children's bed and another with a double bed and two single beds. From the second floor, you can go out on a balcony to enjoy the crisp night air and unique northern lights.

There is free WiFi in the summer house. Towels and bed linen can be reserved upon request for an extra fee.

This is a quiet place in the beautiful nature of Iceland. The location is perfect if you are planning to travel around the south part and visit Iceland's most famous sights, such as the Golden Circle with magnificent Gullfoss and Geysir or Þingvellir, the National Park, only 30 minutes away. The capital, Reykjavik, is also only an hour drive.

Selfoss is only 10 minutes away, and there you find all the necessary amenities you need, such as grocery stores, banks, gas stations and a swimming pool.

The summer house is located right in the centre of some of the most popular attractions in Iceland. Only a half an hour drive you can reach Gullfoss (the Golden Waterfall). The force and beauty of this two-tiered waterfall will be something your camera wants to linger on. Just next to the Gullfoss there is the Geysir geothermal area, the home of the famous Geysir and Strokkur hot springs. The Strokkur hot spring erupts every 5 minutes or so, making it one of the most active geysers.

Also very close by there is the famous Skálholt Church which was the seat of religious power in Iceland for centuries and where some of the most dramatic events in Iceland's history took place.

There is an hour drive to Seljalandsfoss waterfall where you can walk behind the waterfall to enjoy the scenery from a different view. The countryside around the waterfall is beautiful and to the north rises the magnificent Eyjafjallajökull Glacier.

You can then drive further to Skógar where you will find Skógafoss Waterfall, that is considered to be one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland. You can then drive through Mýrdalur valley to enjoy a view of Mýrdalsjökull glacier under which lies the central volcanic system of Katla.

There is around a two-hour drive to Vik village where you can enjoy some fantastic sights at the black sand beach, for example, the picturesque basalt column formations and the incredible Reynisdrangar Sea stacks.

You can easily make a day trip to Vestmannaeyjar, a true wonder of nature. The youngest island of the Vestmannaeyjar celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2003, and the oldest one is close to 40.000 years old. You drive the pier at Bakkafjara on the south coast, and from there the ferry takes another 30 minutes to reach the islands. You can visit the puffin nesting area in Storhofdi and walk up to the crater of a volcano that erupted only a few decades ago as well as exploring the flora of the new lava field. You can also make a boat cruise where you see many of the wonders of the Vestmannaeyjar nature. Colourful ocean caves, thousands of seabirds and, occasionally during the summer, groups of whales.

Minimum stay during the winter is two nights.
