I would definitely recommend a stay at this guest house to anyone. The owner is really lovely and her homemade breakfast is amazing. We had a fridge, oven, kettle and 2 cooking hobs in our apartment which allowed us to cook evening meals. The beds are very comfortable and the place is nicely designed and clean. The views are superb, too (with views of the sea, lake, birds, the mountains and Reykjavík). There is a good cafe/ restaurant and a Swimmingpool in walking distance. Supermarkets are a 5 Minute drive away. Reykjavík town centre can be easily reached by car in 20 minutes. This place would suit anyone’s requirements and especially people that love nature and don’t want to stay in a soulless city hotel. I would recommend hiring a car to get around, but there is a bus stop nearby. My partner and I stayed at the guest house for 6 nights and we will return there in the future!

We have stayed in quite a few Airbnb’s and have never had this type of experience. The property itself is amazing. Our apartment had everything you could possibly need. Aslaug thought of everything down to providing an umbrella if it was needed! She gave excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to do. It was wonderful to see her every morning during our five night stay. She provided a beautiful breakfast spread for all the guests every morning. Her homemade specialties included pancakes, waffles, omelets and the most delicious bread you can imagine! She also had a selection of homemade jams that was the perfect addition. Another guest needed to leave early for a tour and she provided them a basket full of goodies since they were to leave before the standard breakfast time. Several guests talked about having visited Iceland before and planning to come again in the future. We understand wanting to return to Iceland now. And we would love to stay with Aslaug again! You won’t regret choosing this Guesthouse even one little bit! Aslaug spoiled us and now I want all of our Airbnb experiences to be just like this. Thank you, Aslaug!
