A great base to explore the south-west of Iceland, with its beautiful places. The accommodation is 2 min. walk from the seaside, black beach. Great to go hiking in the Esja mountain or take a stroll along the seashore, enjoying the birds -the waves -and the freshness in the air. A good 16m out door swimming pool + a hot tub is near the shore.
You can make this your home for a while, and be comfortable.
Last but not least: A good place to watch the amazing Northern Lights from October to March.

Dear Sam, Thank you for your review. I need to clarify one thing, perhaps it's my mistake that I didn't tell you, but the water in the tabs in Iceland is 100% pure mountain water, even better than bottled water.

This was one of the best airbnb experiences I've ever had. Guðlaug was an amazing host, very carrying and helpful. My mother hurt her foot before arriving and Guðlaug went out of her way to make sure she had ointments to relieve the pain and swelling. This location was close to a lot of popular spots, but far enough away from Reykjavik to not be touristy. It was clean and tidy and she had a few snacks in the room to tide us over. The two cats were sweet and my mom and I fell in love with them. Seriously, if you want a great airbnb experience in Iceland, stay here!

Of the eight Airbnbs I stayed in during my travels to Sweden and Iceland, this was my favorite place. I did not actually meet the host since our schedules did not align, nonetheless, she provided perfectly for me as a guest. She has included a lot of thoughtful details to assure that her guests have a comfortable stay. I had almost exclusive use of a private and well equipped bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, and I appreciated the little snacks and quick meal items that she provided in the room. It was a great base location to make day trips to sites to both the north and east. Even though it might be a bit on the expensive side for the accommodations, I still felt that it was a great investment and would gladly stay here again. Highly recommended!

This is a great find for someone who wants to enjoy the beauty of southwest and western Iceland. I was able to do a commendable amount of traveling with this house as my home base. The accommodations were clean and tidy. The host is a friendly woman with wonderful suggestions for destinations and activities. She stocked coffee/tea with the necessary tools to make them in your room, as well as a few snack goods. There is a fridge and microwave in the room as well. I highly recommend this room.
