South Central


South Central Apartments

Brand new family accommodations in the golden circle.

The South Central Apartments were built in 2012 with comfort in mind.  The apartments are spacious and bright with comfortable beds or up to four people. There is a double bed and a bunk bed for two with 90X200 matrasses. The bunk beds are designed for adults so they are both big and sturdy.

There is a fully equipped kitchen with cooking equipment and utilities for six people, a flat-screen Tv, free Wi-Fi, and a view outside the window that is to die for.

The bathroom is big, bright, and comes with a big powerful shower and a hairdryer.

Only 200 meters away there is a campsite, Swimmingpool and a play area for kids.

Strangely enough, there is a bar and restaurant within walking distance only 500 m. away. 


Privately owned and family-run.

The property has gone through some drastic changes since it was first built as a gas station & store in the 80´

Later it became a candle factory & restaurant.

The current owners decided to rebuild it back in 2012 and turn it into 5 modern apartments that were designed with family travels in mind.

The South Central Apartments


Food and Drink

Just as a reminder the apartment is a few kilometers from the nearest shop. So stockpile a bit.


The water in Iceland is fresh, pure and perfectly safe for drinking right out of the tap. Anyone trying to sell you the fact that you need to buy and drink bottled water is just full of it.

But of course having a bottle of water with you while traveling is always good, but you are welcome to fill it from our taps.

The other kind of drinking

If you were thinking of alcohol it is only sold in special stores in Iceland (and bars) that are only open on weekdays and most of them only until six o clock.

Very comfortable beds

Very comfortable beds and space enough to fit 4 adults (however we were 2). The kitchen has everything you need to cook (even salt and pepper) and different appliances. The toilet was great and we had towels and hair dryer+ shower gel and shampoo. The kitchen area is big enough to accommodate 4 adults. You even have a TV with different channels. 



Conveniently located off the Golden Circle

Conveniently located off the Golden Circle near the Secret Lagoon, with all the required amenities.”

Everything was clean and cozy

“It was a really nice small studio Apartment, perfect for a family of 4. Everything was clean and cozy. Behind the building was a school where the playground was also for public use (during July and August), our Kids loved that! There is also a Swimming pool.”



The accommodation was fantastic

“The check-in with a key-code was very nice and easy. The accommodation was fantastic, the kitchen fully equipped (cutlery + oven+coffee machine)  The beds and the room very comfortable. A nice and very convenient location to explore the Golden Circle / Southern Area.”

Biking & Hiking

Both biking and hiking are of course close by.  In Iceland we call hiking a “Labbitúr”  and it is basically jus going for a walk, witch you can do almost anywhere. 

The biking part is also an option, but we want you to remember ti be carefull. Off road biking in the wrong places can be both dangerous an costly if you go of the path and end up ruining nature. Also there are no official bike paths along our highway so you are close to traffic. So that being said remember to be well light up, have reflective gear, let someone know exactly where you are going, chek in often and enjoy.   

And in both cases remember to prepare for any kind of weather. You know the old Icelandic saying. If you dont like the weather now -wait 10 minutes.
