We spent our first night here. Johanna and her husband are very warm-hearted, she told us a lot about the country, her children and recommends us a good restaurants for the evening (Galito) 10 minutes walk from the guesthouse and the dos and dont's on Iceland ;-) We had a nice room with a double-bed, it was clean and comfortable.

The nice thing about "The Little Guesthouse by the Ocean" is the warm welcome and quiet, central setting in Akranes. But the real clincher is the bedding: featherlight but soft, light covers and excellent mattress gives the traveler a wonderful rest. The room is on the ground floor, a little lower than street level but plenty of light is streaming... More

The owners were very pleasant and easy to work with. They genuinely care about the needs of their guests. Sweet little house in a beautiful little city with a view. I would recommend staying here! A warm welcome for folks from Orlando, Florida!

Our host was the only person we saw in Akranes! Such a sleepy town. The accomodation is annexed off in the basement (don't worry it has windows!) and is a complete apartment. We were the only people staying so we had a choice of all three rooms. There is a fully functional kitchen with hob, oven, fridge, and sink. The... More

In July this year our family of 6 (ages16, 20, 22, 26, 52, 57) had the holiday of a lifetime in Iceland. Our accommodation was in a little guest house right on the harbour in Arkranes. We had a view across the indigo ocean and 3 clean, cosy bedrooms with a bathroom, laundry facilities and kitchenette. Having our own cooking... More

This guest house is the basement of Johana's home where she has 3 rooms that all share 1 bathroom plus a small kitchen for guests to use. You'll definitely need a car to get here and get around but once here you'll definitely enjoy it. Johana is quite friendly and helpful at pointing you places you'd never see without her... More

I recently had the great pleasure of staying at the little guest house on the sea. I came in the depths of winter and found the warmth of hospitality enchanting. It is wonderfully located by the sea with easy access to the countryside which was great for me. The rooms are spotlessly clean with crisp fresh bed linen which coupled... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Johanna's cozy guesthouse. It was very warm and welcoming. The guesthouse would be perfect for a family needing multiple rooms with a kitchen. With all the snow, winter proved to be a magical time to visit Iceland.

Our family (we have two kids, 1 and 3) stayed at The Little Guesthouse two nights this summer. This was a great and very family/child friendly accomodation. Our room was clean and warm. A crib for our baby was put in without any extra cost. Right next to our room there was a clean and tidy little kitchen and a... More
