    We had a truly wonderful stay at Nutima House. The house was perfect for us (couple with 2 small children), very well equipped and the garden is beautiful. My two boys loved the hot tub – only problem was getting them out of it to go to bed! It’s a great base for seeing the southern part of Iceland. The owners give lots of great advice about what to see and do – hopefully we will make it back someday and see the things we didn’t quite have time for. Highly recommended.

    We stayed at NUTIMA HOUSE for 10 days at the end of October, the experience was beyond the words.

    Quiet surrounding, beautiful garden even it’s winter time. All my boys had a great fun in this fabulus house. From the house, about 10-15 mins drive to Geysir and gullfoss, with owner’s help, we also got a list of local secret tips, very very very useful…..we will definately come back in the future summer!

    My family and I had a wonderful time in the house. It is the perfect place to use as a jumping off point for exploring the Golden Circle area as well as parts of the south. The landscape around the house is truly beautiful and the house itself is perfect for a family. I would whole-heartedly recommend staying here!

    As per the previous reviews, Nutima House is a wonderful place to explore the Golden Circle and the South of Iceland. We spent a week there on honeymoon this July. It’s comfortable, stylish and the gardens are gorgeous for an evening wander! Although it’s not far off the beaten track, it’s very secluded and private. The outdoor hot tub is a wonderful addition and benefits from the shelter of the veranda so you can enjoy a soak whatever the weather. Highly recommended.

    We had the most amazing time in Iceland and Nutima house was the perfect place to stay.

    The house is exactly as per the photos. Beautifully designed, easy to inhabit, well equipped.

    What I hadn’t expected were the beautiful gardens. Wild flowers and beautiful trees everywhere we looked (unusual for Iceland).

    And the location was superb. Right on the Golden Circle route. Super close to Geysir, Gulfoss and the Secret Lagoon and a great base to explore further afield… Like the caves and glaciers (we went ‘Inside the Glacier’ which was a great experience).

    I would recommend Nutima House unreservedly to anyone wanting to explore South West Iceland.

    And the hot tub was a total bonus at the end of each day.

    My family of four just got back from a stay at Nutima House and can’t recommend it more. The home is beautiful; the surrounding property has a small path that you can amble down — if you weren’t in Iceland and near some of the country’s biggest attractions I could see never leaving!

    We visited the three big “Golden Circle” spots (Gulfoss, Thingviller, Geysir), which are all within a half hour away, but were just as taken with some of the smaller, local hot springs and sights; Erla has lots of helpful recommendations. Lovely!

    I can only underline every word the previous reviewer wrote: Beautiful property and incredibly helpful hosts!

    The house is perfectly situated for trips to all major sites in the area of the Golden Circle and even for day trips to the South Coast.
    It is clean and perfectly equipped. And the garden is big enough for the kids to make their own little explorations. As for food, we bought wonderful products at the local food markets in the area.

    To summarize – we had the most wonderful time!

  • Alan Rakov, March 7, 2015

    Our family, together with friends, stayed at this fantastic place. Our kids explored everything there was to explore on the property, including the Hot Tub.

    We were there in July – perfect base camp from which to explore the Golden Circle.

    PS I golfed nearby at midnight. Checked that off my list.
