Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our stay in iceland. An hour driving distance to most places we wanted to see, and fully equipped truly making it a home away from home. There was a gas station across the street and a big grocery store in the next town. It was cozy and big enough for two but could comfortably sleep 5 or more. The wifi connection was fast which made it easy to communicate back home. The home was heated making it cozy for the cold winter nights. Thank you Haraldur!! If we ever come back we wil definitely look here first :)

Creepy House

  • 3 of 5

Kids named it the Creepy House. In their opinion, it was sad it was being used as a vacation rental instead of a museum offering. I couldn’t agree more, as all of original owner’s pictures and decorations are still there. Brings up memories of visiting my own late grandmother.

Although not unusual in Iceland, one is asked to do a cleaning prior to leaving. It would be nice if this was advertised in the original listing, as it is a minor inconvenience we try to avoid during our vacations.

Internet is provided via a cell hotspot. Not a big deal, but we asked kids to refrain from video streaming to be respectful of the owner’s data plan.

There is a washer machine, but no dedicated dryer. We simply finished drying the last batch of laundry when we got back home.

There is one small bedroom downstairs and two beds upstairs. If there’s 5 of you traveling, two beds will be shared. A foldable bed was found behind the couch upstairs, but it did not seem like a good option.

Gas station across the road did not bother us a bit. In fact, it came in handy to grab a quick carton of milk in the morning.

Property owner is quick to respond, take care of issues and address concerns. Check-in process is a simple as it could be – key lockbox is outside.

Warm and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

No problems in finding the house despite arriving in the dark. The house is very warm with lots of space in several rooms. We didn't use upstairs - there were only two of us, but the stairs were a bit steep so we chose the downstairs bedroom which was very comfortable.

Very helpful host who responded quickly to all our questions, including sorting out the wifi which wasn't working when we arrived.

One small downside is that the house is opposite a small filling station. It wasn't busy but the lights were on all night. Didn't spoil our stay though. Would recommend.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing stay in Iceland!

The house was perfect - great location to all the sights, warm, great shower, quiet and very close to the sea.

There’s a perfect dark spot about 1 minute drive down the road and we were really lucky to see some really amazing Northern Lights two nights in a row.

Grocery stores are about a 10 minute drive in to the next town - we would recommend ‘bonus’ for the best prices!

If we were to come back to Iceland we would most definitely stay here again. Thank you :)

Perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you could want for a holiday home. Very comfortable, exactly as described and well maintained. Haraldur was very helpful and friendly and we can recommend this property. The location is perfect for exploring the south east corner of Iceland.

le charme desuet de l'authenticité

  • 5 of 5

Une petite maison très confortable, propre et très bien équipée, une décoration pas très contemporaine mais pleine de charme avec ses napperons brodés et ses photos anciennes . On est si bien dans ce cadre qui a une âme et qui ne ressemble en rien à ces maisons en préfabriqué meublée Ikéa.
