The owners were very pleasant and easy to work with. They genuinely care about the needs of their guests. Sweet little house in a beautiful little city with a view. I would recommend staying here! A warm welcome for folks from Orlando, Florida!

Our host was the only person we saw in Akranes! Such a sleepy town.
The accomodation is annexed off in the basement (don't worry it has windows!) and is a complete apartment. We were the only people staying so we had a choice of all three rooms. There is a fully functional kitchen with hob, oven, fridge, and sink. The host was kind and helpful, and the wifi was great.
As the name would suggest it's right next to the ocean, and if the tide is out it's a fantastic beach to go and sit for the evening.

In July this year our family of 6 (ages16, 20, 22, 26, 52, 57) had the holiday of a lifetime in Iceland. Our accommodation was in a little guest house right on the harbour in Arkranes. We had a view across the indigo ocean and 3 clean, cosy bedrooms with a bathroom, laundry facilities and kitchenette. Having our own cooking facilities meant that we were able to prepare meals and make picnics which saved money with a big family. We were witihin walking distance of food shops and cafes and the town provided a good base to set out in many different directions to explore the breathtaking countryside. The house has a large back garden and clothes line, so we were able to peg out the clothes then lie on the grass with a book and relax in the sun - yes t-shirt weather! Our landlady took time to discuss aspects of Icelandic history and economic development with us and to suggest sights that we should not miss. We felt very much at home and would love to stay there again.

Room Tip: The accommodation was ideal for a large family like ours. The shared bathroom was no bother.

This guest house is the basement of Johana's home where she has 3 rooms that all share 1 bathroom plus a small kitchen for guests to use. You'll definitely need a car to get here and get around but once here you'll definitely enjoy it. Johana is quite friendly and helpful at pointing you places you'd never see without her help (like the public baths). The only drawback was the 1 shared bathroom for the three rooms - there was only 1 shower and it was connected to the bathroom so if someone was showering there isn't a toilet available. Given that we had 2 of the 3 rooms when we stayed there it wasn't much of an issue.

I travelled recently with my brother through Iceland and had the chance to stay at this cozy guesthouse for 1 night. Johana gave us a very warmth welcoming. She explained us about the region and recommended us nice things to do or see...We had nice talks about traveling and funny anecdotes that come with traveling.. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. There is even a kitchen and a bathroom to share with other guests. Very Good rate quality/price
