Two floors, four bedrooms and the most magnificent view over the river of Tungufljot. The bedroom and livingroom windows make a perfect frame around the majestic mount Hekla on the other side of the river.

The lodge, River Rocks, is a stylish and modern, yet warm and embracing house. Exclusive and very private, yet only a few minuites walk from the village swimming pool, the grocery store, coffee house and other services in the village of Brautarholt. It is a short drive from Geysir and Gullfoss, very central for all the most important sights in the south of Iceland. One can do a day trip to the highlands of Landamannalaugar, the Westman Islands and Thorsmork , Skogar and Eyjafjallajokull, and always return to the warm embracing house on the hill.

The house is a piece of art ? an architectural pride of its owner, the architect Geirharður Thorsteinsson and his wife Gudny Helgadottir.

The master bedroom above the livingroom sleeps two in a king sized bed. Two smaller bedrooms are on the second floor, both with double beds. There is a bathroom on the second floor. Steep stairs leading to the second floor. On the first floor there is one room with one bed and a work desk. The kitchen is in the open space on the first floor with dining table for ten to twelve people. Two steps down to a spacious open living room with floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and dining area.

On the first floor there is also a bathroom with a shower. Two balconies with outdoor furniture.

The sunrise is breathtaking, as well as the sunset over the highlands and glaciers seen from the house.
