We are Marteinn Thorsson (tenderlee.com) a filmmaker, and Gudrún Eva Minervudottir (minervudottir.com) a novelist. We have a young daughter, Minerva, and a cat, Gudbrandur.
Being artists can be an economically tricky affair. And since we have a nice big backyard we decided to turn a part of it into a residence, for a bit of an extra income.
We want to create an intimate and inspiring place of rest. So we encourage you to stay for more than one night. The best way to experience our beautiful country is to take it slow and notice the little things: The smells in the air, the ever-changing light, the shapes of geothermal steam rising from the ground, the rain or snow on the window, the sound of the wind, the absence of stress.
So if you want to relax, do some hiking, go on interesting day trips, cook your own meal, fire up the sauna, and get to know a bit of the life in a small Icelandic town – this place is ideal.
