Nice apartment in Selfoss
We really enjoyed staying at the upstairs apartment. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 with king beds and the 3rd with a twin bed. Huge bathroom, but the shower is tiny. Kitchen was fully stocked, and large table for meals, etc. Not much seating area besides the table. This is a remote location, and very quiet and scenic. However it is within an hour of great tourist destinations.

Favorite Place we stayed in Iceland
The owners are wonderful and welcoming. Why stay at a hotel when you can stay at an Icelandic Goat Farm?!?! The room was very clean and it was nice to have a kitchenette. It was the only place we stayed that had an actual bed for our 10 year old son. They had a goat tour and we learned all about the farm. And the view is amazing.
