About Oddny Teitsdottir

Oddny and Ari bought this house 2014. We refurbished the house to make it nice and cozy. We live in Garðabær which is a town close by Reykjavík and have 4 daughters.

Oddny Teitsdottir purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Oddny Teitsdottir chose Iceland

We bought this house because Oddny´s mum grew up in Vik and we have stayed there allot for many years. Vik is a dear place to us and we enjoy to spend time there with our children.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is on the outskirt of the village. The fields are just outside the porch and sometimes the horses are just a few steps away. The beach is also close by which has tremendous magnitude with its black volcano sand on all the power.

The two houses are very comfortable.

Clean, Spacious, Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The cottage in Vik is perfect for a large group. The home was clean and had a comfortable living room area to relax after a days hiking and activities. The town of Vik was perfect to stay in too with good restaurants, a grocery store, and good location for lots of day activities. Highly recommend this cottage to stay in if you have a large group and Oddny is very easy to work with. There is also a beautiful black sand beach only a 5 minute walk away from the door step. Thanks for letting us stay and enjoy the town of Vik!

Great Cottage !

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Vik at this cottage. It was especially roomy and comfortable for our group, and the separate cottage out back was very helpful to allow us to spread out a little. It was perfectly situated to see -what I consider the best parts of Iceland south shore. It was clean, had great appliances and services, and Oddny provided us with an abundance of information. A small grocery store in the town was a welcome bonus. We had everything we needed, including the northern lights for two nights. Beautiful home and area, Thank you Oddny.

LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home base. Modest from the outside but so much space on the inside. Oddny was gracious and very responsive when we had questions. The place itself is such a treasure. We were two families of 4 each and had a great stay. VERY close to the black sand beach. Vik was a great base town to explore the Southern coast of Iceland and this lovely cottage was the perfect home base.

Wonderful Stay in Vik

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here in Vik. The town is so quaint. The house was easy to find and close to many of the places we wanted to visit. There was a little grocery store just a couple of blocks away that provided all our necessities. The house was clean and there was plenty of room for my family of 6. The kitchen was well stocked. I would highly recommend this place and can't wait to stay here again! Thank you Oddny for allowing us to stay in your lovely cottage. We can't wait to visit Iceland again.

All basic service is in Vík like grocery, health care, swimming pool, bank, restaurants and a liquor store. Football field is by the swimming pool (350m), playground for the kids and there is a golf course in Vík.

Places of interest and distances:

Víkurfjara. Only 350m to the beautiful black beach. In 1991, the US journal Islands Magazine counted this beach as one of the ten most beautiful beaches on Earth

The famous Reynisdrangar are pictorial basalt sea stacks situated under the mountain Reynisfjall. Legend says that the stacks originated when two trolls dragged a three-master ship to land unsuccessfully and when daylight broke they turned into rock.

It is fun and rather easy to walk up the mountain Reynisfjall that is just beside the village. There is a road up to the top but it is only for 4WD cars. On the top you can see relics from the Second World War and the view is fantastic where you can see Dyrhóley, Reynisdrangar, Mýrdalsjökull glazier and Eyjafjallajökull glazier. It is also easy to walk over the mountain to Reynisfjara beach.

Reynisfjara beach . This is another beach just on the other side of the mountain Reynisfjall (11 km from Vík). There is a new restaurant called Svarta fjaran (The black beach). It is well worth visiting Reynisfjara beach but be careful not to go too near the sea. It is dangerous.

Dyrhólaey peninsula vest of Vík 19 km.

Seljavallalaug - old swimmingpool 42 km.

Þakgil -the canyon with a roof- 21 km.

Skógarfoss waterfall 33 km

Skaftafell National park 140 km

Jökulsárlón glacial lake 193 km

Reykjavík 186 km
