About Agni and Hildur
We are an engineer and an attorney, parents of 4 children. We live in Reykjavík where we both work. The house is our second home and we've spent a lot of time in it since it was built. We love this beautiful and scenic place and look forward to welcoming you to our house.
Agni and Hildur purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Agni and Hildur chose Southern Region
The house is built on land that has belonged to Hildur's family for 3 generations. When we decided to build the house we chose the most scenic location available. We wanted a modern and roomy house that we could relax in all year round.

Breathtaking views, perfect location!
The pictures of this place don't do it justice, the views are simply incredible. You feel like you are out in the middle of nowhere but the location is great, just a few minutes from the Golden circle sights and a bunch of restaurants. Agni and Hildur were perfect hosts, giving us tons of information, answering questions right away and even letting us check in early after an overnight flight. We would absolutely stay here again if we ever make it back to Iceland, maybe next time for more than 2 nights!
Amazing stay at Solfaxi Villa!
Our family of 7 really enjoyed our 3 days at Solfaxi...it was hard to leave!! Highly recommend.
The location - perfect for exploring the southern points in iceland.
The property - amazing panaromic views of the landscape & mountains. Nice walking trails right from the house - we walked to a nearby waterfall, which you can also hear from the deck.
The home - nicely appointed, has everyhting you would need. Great views from all rooms of the house. It is tempting to just enjoy the views from the living room/deck/hot tub and not leave the villa!! Was spacious for our family of 7.
The hosts - very helpful. We had some questions during check-in and Agni was available to guide us thru. The hosts intend to make you feel welcome and comfortable in their home, and that is exactly how we felt.
Beautiful place to stay
We really enjoyed staying here. House was clean and well stocked. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
Outstanding property and owners
The villa excellent. Location serves as a great home base for day excursions to all the most travelled to southern iceland sites (and many of the hidden ones) are within 10 minutes to 1 hour away. House was comfortable and had everything needed. Owners were very responsive. Hot tub was clean and maintenance-free, geothermal heated, no jets. Totally remote despite being in the perfect location. We were 1/2-1 km away from people. In evenings you look out and see horses, birds, and hear the calm sound of Flax waterfall. Our only challenge were the midges or black flies. This has only been a problem in Iceland for only a few years, and no one has screens in the country. It was hot at night, afternoon temps were 69-72 through week and most nights not very windy. This was pretty unseasonable weather and the midges appeared only at dusk and dawn when there was no wind and hot, but it meant closing windows at night or leaving them open and using bug spray on exposed skin. But leaving windows open with shade drawn because of daylight all night long not very effective to keeping rooms cool. On cooler and windier nights the midges were much less of a problem. Still, this was the most amazing place, our best vrbo to date, and we would definitely rent solfaxi again.
We just left this beautiful and peaceful home and we could not be any happier with our choice! The pictures do not do it justice. You will not be disappointed with your stay in this spacious and well equipped home. The views from the floor to ceiling windows are incredible and soaking in the hot tub after a long day of exploring is perfect. Plus you are close to all the main sites in the golden circle. And some of the best restaurants such as Fridheimer, Mika and Efstidalur. The hosts were very quick to respond to our questions. This place deserves 10 stars!!
