This Guesthouse was the best that I have ever stayed in. I would rate it 6 out of 5 if I could. The owner, a very nice woman, cooks an authentic Icelandic breakfast every day that is complimentary. She cooks many dishes, all with one similarity. They are extremely delicious. She

Regarding transportation, We do recommend a car rental for comfort. The drive from the Keflavík airport is just a straight drive all the way out to Álftanes peninsula from the Airport. However, you can also take a fly-bus from the airport to our nearest neighborhood Hotel Hafnarfjordur and then take a taxi from there to our guesthouse. The taxi should cost about 3000 kr from the Hotel and the fly-bus about 4000 kr per person. You can also take a taxi from the airport straight to our guesthouse and that should cost about 15000 kr in total and take about 50 minutes. Our address is: Eyvindarholt 1. Álftanes. If you have any questions please call us at: 00354 8231546.

Hello, the Chicken Dinner Not crowing early in the morning? Sorry, bad experiences..Regards, Birgit
Hello So far, we have not had any problems with our chickens and rooster. Our guests have in fact enjoyed watching them in the garden from the breakfast hall. We make sure to keep them inside their hut in the morning until our guests are up and have come for breakfast.
