Margret and Johann Owners
Vatnsholt is an old farm, today we are running 34 rooms guesthouse and a restaurant in the old barn.
We have been renting out rooms in Guesthouse Vatnsholt since 2010. We moved from Hafnarfjordur to Vatnsholt 2006 and opened 2010.
The location of Vatnsholt is great for trip to the Golden circle and exploration of the whole south coast. We are also just a few minutes away from waterfall Uriðafoss or city Selfoss.
