We stayed for 25 days and found the Ecohouse really comfortable. It's spacious, warm and very well designed, with plenty of cupboard and storage space. We slept incredibly well. It's also in a great location: some days we just spent locally, walking along the beach; other days we went further afield. It's only a 10 minute drive to Selfoss and its supermarkets and drive-thru hot dog stand. Ragnar was a very good host, really helpful when we needed help but otherwise unobtrusive. Two tips: a good place to see the Northern Lights is over the bridge at Eyrarbakki and then parking on one of the small tarmac places looking out over the river/estuary. And the cafe next to Kronan supermarket in Selfoss does delicious cakes. Two things that could be improved at the Echouse: most of the time we could only watch DVDs as TV reception seemed to be affected by wind, and two of the main lights were out for our entire stay, making it hard to read when it was dark. But otherwise I would really recommend it.
This was the best house I've stayed in for my whole trip in Iceland. Close to everything, the beds were so comfortable, the water didn't smell like sulfur, no flies, internet was quick and working. The owner himself was easy to work with and the price is great for such a fantastic house!!!
We were the first to rent this house.
Very friendly owner, rather large, well-equipped and clean house with the necessities to care for a family of 5.
Eyrarbakki is a small town with endless beach, well located for visiting other places within one hour's drive.
We had a great vacation on Iceland
