Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had the best three days staying at Viking Villa. Inga & Maggnus were flexible with our arrival time to suit us, they greeted us with a warm welcome & showed us around their beautiful villa. It was truly mind blowing arriving in the glorious sunshine & and looking at the stunning panoramic views from the kitchen! Inga & Maggnus gave us good recommendations of what to do & visit & reassured us that we could call them if we needed anything. We didn't need to as the house is in excellent condition & well equipped. I would highly recommend Viking Villa! Emily, UK.

“WOW! Outstanding.”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Words are not enough to describe how fantastic Viking Villa II is, quite simply, it is perfect. The villa is spotless and the hosts are extremely welcoming and a mine of local knowledge. Collecting eggs for breakfast was an added bonus. Location is excellent for visiting a host of places including the Golden Circle. The Secret Lagoon (hot spring pool), almost on the doorstep, has to be experienced and is incredibly relaxing after a day sightseeing, hiking etc and on a September evening you will have the place almost to yourself.

If you know anything at all about coffee though give the Nespresso machine a miss! Iceland has some outstanding micro roasteries so and stop at Reykjavik Roaster and get some decent freshly roasted coffee to use with the drip machine.

“Best vacation rental in Iceland!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We enjoyed a wonderful stay in Inga and Maggnus's Viking Villa. The house is truly a luxury accommodation, and includes all the facilities you would need on an Iceland vacation. The high point for us might have been the espresso machine in the kitchen or the fresh eggs from the hen house in the morning. Maggnus took his time to give us practical advice about road conditions in Iceland, the sights of the Golden Circle and how to manage our stay. If we could have changed anything we would have stayed there longer! The location of the house is perfect for day trips around Iceland. We warmly recommend it to anyone going to Iceland! Best Wishes, Sofia and Kjetil

This place was amazing. The house had everything - you could even collect your own fresh eggs from the hen house for breakfast. The owners were extremely hospitable and helpful and the setting and location were beautiful. Iceland is an incredible place to visit, a perfect holiday for people who love nature and tranquility. We will definitely be visiting again.

“Luxurious and spacious cottage”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We enjoyed a great stay in the Viking Villa II. The cottage is spacious, comfortable, very complete and luxuriously furbished. Everything you want or need in a holiday home is there. And more.

Owners Maggnus and Inga are very helpful and made sure we had a perfect stay. They could advise us on Iceland perfectly too.

Great place to stay if you choose to be in the Icelandic countryside, since it is close to the island's highlights; Geysir and the biggest waterfalls are all within an hours drive. Reykjavik and the airport are also within 1,5 hours drive.

Liked best: The overall comfort and spaciousness of the cottage
Liked least: The sulfur in the hot water changes your showering experience (smells unpleasant, feels slippery and changes the colour of silver jewellery). It is fairly common in Iceland though, since it;s from natural thermal sources.

We had a great stay in Viking Villa! The villa was really lovely and comfortable and had everything we needed and more! It was a great location for day trips around the Golden Circle and further afield. Our hosts at the villa were very welcoming and helpful. This would be a wonderful villa for families as well as a nice retreat for couples. It is set in a lovely location with lovely views. It is only a short walk (1km) into the village, but you are completely surrounded by lovely countryside. Our host was also an excellent story teller and gave us helpful hints and tips of what to see while we were in Iceland. Iceland is such a fabulous country! I cannot recommend it enough!!!
