We found this place by accident driving down route 1 on the south coast. A farm guesthouse. The owners, Johan and Margaret, were friendly and welcoming. Rooms were spotless. The farm has amazing views, horses, a baby calf, baby fox, Fiona (the ugliest dog in iceland), Elvis (a dancing goat), and 2 friendly Labradors. Dinner was 3 course gourmet meals prepared by a chef. I plan to return to iceland sometime soon, and if I'm passing through the south coast again, I will definitely be back. Prices were similar for the area, and considering the experience, definitely worth it. I would recommend Vatnsholt to anyone planning to lodge in the area.
