This was our second time staying in Elias' wonderful home. We love it and love how close it is to the ocean. You just step out the door turn the corner and there you are! It is cool to watch the seals, birds and other sea creatures in the fjord. As well, it is very close to Reykjavik, Keflavik and the Blue Lagoon. There are two Bonus stores (and bakeries) that are located about 10 minutes from the home too. This home contains a lot of history and is beautifully decorated. The layout is very nice and the modern addition holds a beautiful living room and the kitchen has everything you need. There is a second living room with a lovely dinning area attached. We didn't use it but upstairs is a large area with multiple beds, perfect for a large family with several children. Elias is a wonderful host and we hope that we can return in the near future. It is one of our favorite homes to stay at in Iceland.
We had a very relaxing week in this house. The house is situated near the sea. It is calm with wonderful nature around. There are a lot of birds. The house is big, the kids were happy and we had everything we needed. It is not far from the Airport and the Blue Lagoon. A good point to start visiting this beautiful Island. Thanks!
We had the time of our life! It was a dream vacation! The house is well equipped and very clean! And the view from the kitchen was my wife's favorite! She did not mind cooking :-) we will rent it again in our next trip to Iceland
Communication before stay was prompt. Needed specific driving directions from owner because google maps couldn't direct appropriately. Large house with basic necessities (knives were a bit dull). Washer and dryer. Only issue was TV didn't have sound when first arrived. Called owner and he suggested how to fix it but we had already tried that. After two phone calls, the owner didn't have anymore suggestions but after several attempts from us we finally got it to work. House centrally located. Close to the Blue Lagoon. Sleeping loft (we used for the kids to sleep) is up a steep incline of stairs with a gate at top. Two other bedrooms are on the main floor).

We spent 10 days in Iceland and the house was in the perfect location to stay and visit many places like horse back riding, Blue Lagoon, black sand beach, ice cave tour. We rented a car and visited many beautiful places. Will go back in the future and hope this house will be available.
