We love Our House!!!! My friend and I stayed there three nights as a home base while we did the Golden Circle tour, South Coast tour and Blue lagoon. Our stay was fantastic and it will be our first choice when we go back to Iceland. The entire house, from the kitchen to the sun room, to the bedrooms and bathrooms, is extremely cozy and cute. We stayed in Iceland for 10 nights and I think Our House had the most comfortable beds and pillows.....also clean, clean, clean!
The decorations and design are very homey, artistic, creative and intelligent...just like the photos on their website depict. :) Overall, the place feels ....like home, actually better!! Classy mid-century and up furniture, and great quality wood work...impressive for a country that has few trees.
Before our stay, I emailed Bedda a bunch of times and she responded with great advice and helpful information, including places to eat, things to see, car rental info, how to get there, etc. There is a live in caretaker, Ernesto, who helped us with all our travel needs and questions. He booked a tour for us, made dinner reservations for us, looked over our itinerary and provided us with recommendations for our trip around the country. He is extremely kind, so down to earth and friendly.
We found the location of Our House to be perfect. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go including Harpa, The Fish Company, the Sea Baron, Seafood Grill,
Hallgrímskirkja church, Haiti Cafe...which, by the way, were all awesome.
Other great features: the sauna, great water from the refrigerator (I'm a water snob and wanted to take some home), basic breakfast included every morning, free laundry, wi-fi and use of their computers, complimentary ear plugs, a collection of adapters for charging batteries, phones, etc, travel books and maps. Everyone we met there was so friendly. It was fun to meet others and share itineraries and experiences.
The selfish part of me wants to keep Our House a secret but more than that I want to share how great Our House is I would love to go back!
