we really enjoyed our stay at solheimar. Its right off of hwy 1 in the icelandic countryside, surrounded by sheep and the mountains, its quite picturesque. not only is it close to all of the sites we wanted to see like Vik, skogafoss, and the beach, but the owner is very nice and the room was clean, dry, and warm....

Nice and quiet, owner was terrific, easy to find, wonderful place to stay. Close access to Vik, Skogafoss [great hiking above the falls], Solheima glacier and Dyrholaey. Booked thru Icelandic Farm Holidays and everything was as expected [We booked two other locations and they all were terrific].

We stayed in the basement, (sleepingbagaccomodation). The rooms were spacious and clean. Sharing the use of the bathroom was not a problem on any day. The kitchen is provided with basic utilities. On the last evening we had a dinner prepared by the host, main course and dessert. It was a really good home cooked meal. We stayed for four... More

The owners is very nice and friendly. The place was just O.K. nothing fancy or decorated, but we stayed in the "sleeping bag" rooms which are extremely basic. You get what you pay for. Very nice view from the house. Near the ocean and a nice cliff.

Good room, cheap, clear, friendly owner... and for free there is a beautiful panorama around :) The guesthouse is just 500 m from the main road (number 1), 22 km at west of Vik. There is a kitchen where it is possible cook your meal.

We chose Eystri Solheimar as starting point for our Iceland round-trip. Staying there for 5 days was a perfect beginning of very relaxing vacations.
