We lived in a Pleasant room with an amazing view. Very quiet surroundings, friendly owner and Nice beds. The only bad thing is, that we stayed here one of our first nights, and we couldn’t help but comparing every other Guesthouse with this, and nothing were as Good as this.

Our family had 2 nights at Sigrun's family farmhouse. We were on the bottom floor in a quad room (4 single beds) which was sleeping bag accommodation. There was no one else staying in either of the other 2 bottom rooms, so we had the run of the kitchen which we used for breakfasts and dinners, as well as lunch assembly. (We didn';t eat out much in Iceland as it is very expensive for Canadians) There is wifi but no TV, which was ok as we were out most of the day. The property is on hundreds of acres of beautiful farmland with lots of sheep and horses grazing- some of the horses came to greet our car when we arrived! One of the highlights of our trip to Iceland, was actually the family walk we took on the property after dinner. We walked out towards the small river that flows through the farmers field and hiked to 2 private waterfalls..it was like a magical green oasis, hidden from the world, so beautiful and the kids enjoyed hopping over the streams and climbing up the hills. Sigrun was very nice and organized a horse back riding excursion for my daughter, in nearby Skogar, which she really enjoyed. We spent one day driving out to Jokarsarlon - took a couple hours each way, so be prepared for a long day - but seeing the glaciars floating in the ocean was quite amazing!

We booked this guesthouse through a third party (Hey Iceland) and it was unclear that our quad was a "sleeping bag accommodation." Tried to get clarification when we saw this term on our receipt , but we did not receive an answer back through email, neither from third party nor owner. When we arrived, the owner expected us to be backpacking and had a small room with 4 beds and no linens available for us in the downstairs. This was very tight for us and our 2 older teens, but she was very apologetic and rented linens to us for half the price of usual cost (1000 kr for 4 sets). We did not know we had the option to order breakfast ahead of time, so if you'd like to do that, it is an option that is not made clear through third party. The house is well located for the attractions near Vik, and my husband went on a lovely hike up the mountain behind the house, which is easy to access for an off the beaten path stroll into the countryside. There is a simple kitchen and shared bathroom (share with a double room) available for those in sleeping bag accommodation rooms. Very clean, as are all accommodations we have experienced in Iceland.

Dear Dorian P. Thank you for writing this review, it gives me the opportunity to make a few things clear. I called Hey Iceland yesterday, and they could not find any email from you, where you tried to change the booking. I didn't get an email or a phone call from you either. I could not have changed your booking, but I could easily have called Hey Iceland and asked them to change it. Breakfast is usually not included if you book the sleeping bag accommodation. Guests there can buy it in the guesthouse and it is not necessary to book it in advance. I´m sorry that I didn't tell you that, when you were here. I´m glad that your husband could enjoy the good weather and the hike in the mountain behind the house on the morning when you were here. I hope that you all had a pleasant and enjoyable vacation in Iceland. Best regards, Sigrun T

This is a very nice guesthouse near Vik. It is situated in a quiet area. Fine rooms, which are very neat and clean. The hostess speaks different languages and is very kind. There are two shared bathrooms, but there is a sink in the rooms.

i stayed one night with my two young adult children in a comfortable room on the upper floor looking out over fields of grazing sheep and Icelandic horses. Entire house is nicely appointed in modern Nordic fashion. There is a convenient kitchen and eating area on the bottom floor, and an excellent breakfast is served on the main floor. My only regret is only having a single night to stay here.
