“Amazing place and an amazing host”

Agust was an incredible host and made all 16 of us feel very welcome. His breakfasts were great and he gave us great advice on what to see and do. The guest house was perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. It was an amazing trip and Agust and the house was a huge part of making it so fantastic.

“A wonderful experience! Agust was an exceptional host who made us so welcome”

We arrived in a party of 14 friends to celebrate our son's 30th birthday. The house and cottages were warm and toasty, so welcome after a day of standing under waterfalls and viewing icebergs! The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and the showers adequately hot enough. Agust is a friendly, humorous host who looked after us very well. He cooked an evening meal for us on request which was tasty and wholesome. The breakfasts each morning were filling and set us up for the day walking and exploring Iceland.
I would return again to this property as it was very comfortable. The underfloor heating was the best!!!

“Clean, Peaceful, and Wonderfully Welcoming”

Iceland Magic is a two-story, spacious, traditional-Icelandic cottage located less than half an hour from both Selfoss and Hella. It sits on a giant field, with Icelandic horses grazing in the backyard. It is homey, comfortable, relaxing, spacious, clean, and fully outfitted with everything needed for a wonderful vacation. The host, Agust, is a wonderful, warm man, superbly knowledgable about the history of Iceland and all the local touring options. He is spellbinding to listen to, and is a professional tour guide too, so he can provide everything from simple hikes to glacier treks. Agust was up and waiting for us at 4 AM when we arrived. He is terrific with kids and our young children fell in love with him. The beds were very comfortable, and the home is well insulated. There is a jacuzzi in the backyard, and a sauna in a separate cottage on his large property. There is wireless internet in the house, but it is not strong enough for many devices to operate at once, and it sometimes disconnects. I would make a point of returning to stay at Iceland Magic every time I go to Iceland. Really a positive experience.
