It was the first stay of our Iceland trip and the nicest guesthouse we had. Amazingly beautiful arranged breakfast with fresh baked bread. All arranged by the hard working summer intern we dealt with, The house belonged to a uncle who passed and was then converted into 4 guest rooms 2 have private bathrooms. Great stay.

Place and room is very lovely decorated and comfortable. The owner is sweet and friendly. The location is also great - offered great sunrise view just outside the room. Highly recommended if you visited Vik.

This little guesthouse is an absolute gem. A recently beautifully converted old cottage on Eva, the hosts plot of land it's in a great location and is just a wonderful place to stay. The homemade breakfast that is lovingly prepared by Eva every morning was the absolute highlight. Would strongly recommend it.

My wife and I loved our stay here. Eva was such a welcoming host, providing fresh tea and cake on our arrival. We had the ground floor en-suite bedroom, which was warm, spacious and tastefully decorated. The shared kitchen and living space in the property was a comfortable place to sit and relax, and to meet other guests. Eva puts...

You want to stay here, trust me. Unless you don't like a bucolic farmhouse with a sheep herd on the coast in beautiful countryside with a nice family that makes you breakfast, then you wouldn't like it here. Or anywhere. This is the best, it's what you're looking for. We had a great stay.

The Guesthouse was an inviting cottage. We had the downstairs bedroom with bath. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was very spacious and clean! The breakfast spread was cooked to order and encompassed the entire table. I have no complaints and am looking forward to coming back again!

My partner and I had a great experience with the place. We found the location quite easily and it was not too far from the black sand beach that we visited the next day. In general the place was clean and cozy. The host also got up early to prepare a great breakfast spread and taught us how to enjoy...

I stayed here for one night and had to leave very early the next day so I didn't get to have breakfast, but the owner's property and hospitality are both absolutely fantastic. The house was beautiful and clean and she even gave us a small packet full of black sand from the beach. Such a nice personal touch! Wish we...

We stayed at this guesthouse for 2 nights in early October 2016 Pros: Everything. We were instantly impressed when we arrived. The hostess, Carolina, took us to our room, showed us around, and invited us for some tea and homemade cake. She makes a different cake each day, and they were fantastic. The room was so spacious and beautifully decorated....
