Perfect spot for midnight sun and Northern lights. Within 15 minutes drive to magic volcanic landscape, restaurants and Mývatn Nature Baths. I rent two small double rooms. You share my home with me, my girlfriend, my dog and 2 other guests. I am native, born and raised on the farm Vogar. Once landscaper and local guide I am happy to share with you my knowledge about the area and the life around the lake. If you like a homely stay with locals and get knowledge about the area, welcome to book.
My house is located in a quiet street in the village of Reykjahlíð, north east of Lake Mývatn. The HOUSE itself is an old, cosy and lovable small wooden house with soul. The floor cracks a bit when you walk, kind of talking to you, telling stories of the past. And the walls are thin, keeping no secrets. First you enter a small and cosy HALL, decorated in TRADITIONAL ICELANDIC STYLE, with new and old furniture and photos of my family on the walls. Feel welcome to have a seat at my small old family table, heat water for tea or coffee and enjoy your meal. The BEDROOMS are small but comfortable. They are equipped with comfortable single beds, reading lamps, table, mirror, chair and darkening curtains -blinders-. The beds will be made at your arrival and your towels is on your bed. The rooms are decorated with antique things from my parents farm usable as hangers. My girlfriend loves to handcraft with sheep wool. You are welcome to wear her houseshoes, keeping your feet warm. The BATHROOM is shared with us and two other guests. It is equipped with a shower, toilet, sink, a cupboard and a hairdryer. We live and sleep in the living room with a small KITCHEN. You are welcome to use our kitchen for breakfast, lunch and SIMPLE COOKING from 8am to 8pm. We want you to feel like home and If you like, take a moment to talk to us, we can exchange knowledge about both of our cultures, which I think will enrich the lives and experience of us both.
WHAT TO SEE AROUND MY HOME: My house is in the suburbs of Reykjahlíðar village by the north east corner of Lake Mývatn. It is short on major services, restaurants, sightseeing outlets and the most popular travel destinations. A wide range of hiking trails can be found in the vicinity, golf course, gym, and outdoor activities. The highlands of Iceland are in the backyard of the area around Lake Mývatn, Askja and Víti. Dettifoss Waterfall is 50 km away. Húsavík and whale watching are 56 km away. Goðafoss waterfall 50 km away, Ásbyrgi 80 km It takes two minutes to drive to the town center where there’s a bank, post office, supermarket, gasoline station, information center,pharmacy and the unique local handcraft store Dyngjan with lot of sheep wool products, artcraft, home made bread, jams and more. It only takes five minutes to drive to the Mývatn Nature Baths, a perfect relaxing end to a long day. Several restaurants are within 5 minutes drive if you want to make your stomach happy. Popular nature wonders like volcanic active area Krafla with explosion crater Víti and Leirhnjúkur, Hverir high thermal area, the explosion crater Hverfjall, Grjótagjá - a fissure with two caves and hot underground stream inside, the troll garden Dimmuborgir and the pseudocrater area Skútustaðir are reachable within 5 to 15 minutes drive. .. NORTHERN LIGHTS: From late August and all winter through to middle of April the Northern Lights can be seen. Lake Mývatn is located high in the mountains, which gives good chances to spot the lights. We have more clear sky and higher rates of seeing the lights than other areas in Iceland. I am glad to give you hints to point out great spots to let yourself enchant from this nature wonder and to take magnificent photos. MIDNIGHT SUN: You can experience midnight sun from mid-May to mid-July. This time is a unique experience of energy and timelessness. The night's lights are mild and soothing, the nature slumbering, the birds silent for a while. In 2 hours there is absolute silence, but then it all wakes up again at 4 o'clock when the sun comes up and the birds begin to sing joyfully again. I especially recommend waking up one night at this time and experiencing tranquility and quiet in the unique nature of Lake Myvatn.
  • We had a really nice stay at Ólis and Biancas place. Everything was extraordinary clean and we loved that the house was decorated with so much heart! We appreciate that both of them made sure that we had everything we needed and that they gave us tips to see the area. We would definitely come back!

  • Great place to stay.

    Chris2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Bianca and Óli were pleasant during the two nights we spent with them. We were charmed by the typical Icelandic decoration of their house. They were very helpful with advice on activities and routes. Even going so far as to allow us to stay a little longer on the day of our departure, until the road is unlocked following a snowstorm. We highly recommend this accommodation.

    Alexandre2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Oli's room was the perfect place for us to stay for our time in the Myvatn area. Everything was very clean and perfectly equipped and it was very nice that we could also use their kitchen. Also, they have a very cute dog :) We would definitely recommend a stay at the place.

  • Lovely host. We were too late for the check in but got a warm welcoming. Tiny little room. Skuggi is soo cute! Cute house. The water smells heavy - i think because of the vulcany landscape..

    Anna2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sweet cosy place! Oli and his wife are both really welcoming :) their home is decorated with handmade creations, which really creates a warm atmosphere in the house! All necessary amenities were available, we spent a great time here

  • Stefan was one of our most personable hosts and was happy to spend time getting to know his guests. We enjoyed learning about his band and aspects of Icelandic culture. He recently renovated half the house as an Airbnb with several rooms + shared bathroom, and it is nicely updated and clean. While there isn't a full kitchen, there is a microwave and refrigerator, plus plates, mugs, silverware, coffee, tea, which allowed us to prepare breakfast and dinner there. The location is great, just minutes away from most attractions in the area. Thanks Stefan again for your hospitality!

  • Oli was such a wonderful host that we never felt like we are out of our home. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your very beautiful home, Oli. We talked for almost half an hour about the culture in Iceland and how life works there. He was a tour guider before, so he gave us very excellent tips about local places. He was very easy and kind person to talk with. So was his wife. She made a very good pair of shoes from wool at home. And they allowed us to use them during our stay and it was fabulous. She also has mini store in that she sells all handcrafted wool things. You should must visit that and JUST PURCHASE FROM THERE. (VERY FASHIONABLE AND CHEAPER THEN REYKJAVIK CITY STORES). We liked their home and interior so much that we decided to modify our bedroom little bit in our home. His home was located in very nice area. It was very quite at night and has good view out of the window to look for northern lights easily. Overall, it was excellent stay.

    Deep2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • They are wonderful people and are delightful to talk to. You’ll get great travel trips and lots of local lore. The rooms are great, but you share the WC and the kitchen with the hosts. There is a room where guests can eat their meals by themselves. It’s a very comfortable home.

    Chuck2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts, Oli and Bianca are wonderful. They are very generous with their time and space making our family feel very welcome. Would highly recommend to persons who want to meet and interact with locals!

    Michael2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • This accommodation in the Myvatn area was really nice. The rooms are across the street from the reception and restaurant. The rooms are very nicely decorated.

  • This farm and hotel is an absolute must if you are in the Myvatn area. It is with in extremely easy reach of the nature baths, volcano, and hot spring cave. The restaurant served some of the best dishes we had in Iceland and provided a unique opportunity to learn more about Iceland's farm-to-table movement. The hotel room was lovely and well appointed. We will definitely be back!

    Myvatn, Iceland

    A brand-new nature lodge in the heart of Lake Mývatn's Laxárhraun lava-field. Birkilauf is situated right next to some of Mývatn's most stunning natural phenomenons, yet close to all the main establishments and services in the surrounding area. Birkilauf is family-owned and built from local materials, and offers accommodation in this quiet and peaceful area, where a family member is always on-site to receive guests, provide services, and to advise on activities in the surrounding area.
    Situated in a lava field next to Lake Mývatn, Birkilauf is a secluded guest-house in a fantastic location with 4 twin/double rooms, each with it's own bathroom and shower, and a private exit to a terrace. A large fully equipped kitchen, living-room, and terrace are shared. Fantastic lake and mountain views can be enjoyed from the terrace, where dining is also possible.
    Mývatn (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈmiːˌvaʰtn̥]) is a shallow eutrophic lake situated in an area of active volcanism in the north of Iceland, not far from Krafla volcano. The lake and its surrounding wetlands have an exceptionally rich fauna of waterbirds, especially ducks. The lake was created by a large basaltic lava eruption 2300 years ago, and the surrounding landscape is dominated by volcanic landforms, including lava pillars and rootless vents (pseudocraters). The effluent river Laxá is known for its rich fishing for brown trout and Atlantic salmon.
  • Great room and an even better common area to hang out. The kitchen is amazing if you want to prepare your own meals. If you don’t want to cook there are a couple restaurants nearby. Great location!

    Oe2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in a very quiet place, but it is very close to the attractions around the Lake Lake. It is 5 minutes drive to the Mihu Hot Spring. The landlord is a handsome guy.

  • A beautiful modern home

    Heather2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in June 2019 and had a great experience. Communication with the host was clear, he lives downstairs so is never too far away if needed. There’s a total of 4 rooms, each with a private bathroom. There is a spacious common area and kitchen that is shared with other guests..the host provides all of the cooking basics you’d ever need plus some extras such as eggs, milk, juice, jam, and delicious homemade breads. The host is a wealth of information about Iceland and its history, who went above and beyond to ensure we had a great trip. Would definitely stay here again if traveling through the area.

    Alyssa2019-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • Super welcoming landlord + high-end decoration + superb view, high cost performance. The living room has 180 degree floor-to-ceiling windows, which are perfect for sitting in the living room at night and waiting for the aurora, we also waited for the aurora! The landlord Johann is super welcoming and knowledgeable. As Geek we have found a lot of common topics. Awesome night, thanks to Johann!

    Harry2018-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very nice with a fantastic kitchen and common area, so that even with others there, we didn't feel crowded. The beds were very comfortable and everything was nice and clean. We were greeted warmly and given a lot of assistance for local information, so we could make the most of our time in the area.

    Our neighbourhood is wonderful! Laugar is a beautiful place and peaceful. The evenings there can be beautiful and it's nice to walk around there, after a long day. Lake Mývatn is nearby. There take only about 20-25 minutes to drive there. Goðafoss and Dettifoss, both amazing waterfalls are day trip away. Húsavík is known for its whale watching tours and in Akureyri you can go to museums and art galleries, drink coffee or a glass of wine at some concert and enjoy the nice atmosphere that Akureyri has to offer. And we could go on and on ... and we are happy to help if our guests needs some ideas of where to go and what to see!
  • A gorgeous lodge. So homey. A great place to relax, or even just a great place to sleep. Truly, Haraldur's place made us feel so comfortable.

    Hannah2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great home in a beautiful area. Host is very helpful and easy to communicate with. Totally worth recommending.

  • Magnificent house where our room was waiting for us. We didn't see the hosts who must have been away, but we were able to contact them by phone in case we needed anything. Very good night in this atypical house, and we had a good time thanks to their hot spring in the garden (a little difficult to access in winter but we keep very good memories of it, unique) !! Many thanks for your sympathy :)

    Manon2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • One of our best addresses in Iceland. The reception was top, with great confidence because the house was for us alone. We were able to cook quietly and then go for a swim at the bottom of the garden under the stars. Frankly magic!

  • Staying at Haraldurs home is like living in a little museum😊 he has collected quite a bit cool stuff here. It was very comfy and clean everywhere. Don't miss sitting in the hot pot under a clear sky!

    Theresa2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely hot spring fed garden... How can you go wrong with a backyard hot spring.

    David2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Probably one of the best places we stayed at in Iceland. The place is spacious and we loved the interiour. There were toys for our son and a great view out of every window. There is a hot pot up the hill in the backyard that we enjoyed very much even with 2 degrees outside. There is a piano and a big TV. We stayed for 3 nights and had the place to ourselves for two nights. Great place to see Myvatn and Asbyrgi from.

    Sebastian2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and beautiful place to stay! I personally fell in love with the living room, very nice decorated with a lot of interesting things! The highlight is definitely the natural hot spring in the back of the house! Would 100% come again

  • Excellent 2-night stay in this comfortable mini apartment! Everything is very clean, very well equipped, comfortable bedding and ideal location between Mývatn and Akureyri. The little extra: the very hot 0 degree jacuzzi outside and the northern lights visible from the terrace! :) I highly recommend!

    Loic & Violaine2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The first time I booked a hotel with a jacuzzi, it was great.

    Ya2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We tied in Room 2 and it was very clean and warm despite the mountains right behind it. I arrived at around 9 o'clock in the evening, so I couldn't use the jacuzzi, but the warm water came out too well. If the weather was fine, I could see it. Leave the door open for easy check-in and check-out. All you have to do is leave the key. The room was also warmed up in advance, allowing me to relax during my northern trip. :)

    It is a great apartmennt with everything you need, very nice kitchen, washer and a dryer and the 2 dbl rooms and one singl room that share the two batrooms. The apartment is on the ground floor.

    Quiet and good neighborhood near the highway and 2 minutes to the nearest shop and restaurant, posthouse and the bank.
  • The house is extremely well maintained and clean. We had booked for 2 nights but we couldn't make it for the 1st as the roads were closed. Bryndis offered us refund. Everything was better than the description. Will def come back once I return to Iceland. We couldn't see the Aurora. However that was only because there was a cloud cover. We also checked out a bit late as we were tired. Bryndis was cool with that.

    Hardik2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

We had a note on the door with my name on it so we felt welcomed right away. The place is sparkling clean and we have our own bath robes!!! The kitchen was nice to make a meal for 4. We'd highly recommend this place to other guests!

    Ariel2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Our family has a lovely 4-nights-stay on the farm. We thought it might be too long but neither of us wanted to leave after 4 days! It is located right next to Mývatn and in the middle of many attractions, such as krafla areas. We spent 2 days simply exploring the volcanoes, lava formations, black rocks simply around Mývatn, another day driving to Húsavík for whale watching and another day in Akureyri exploring the town. We love the peace on the farms and the food is great. Our children always say that they want to go the the cow’s place to have meals. The breakfast is so healthy and rich in variety. We even tried the fresh warm milk (while watching the cows being milked during breakfast)! The cafe’s scenery is also amazing. The background is the volcano and cows walking by the lake...We loved our stay on the farm and hope to revisit!

    Yan2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at the farm. It was charming! We also absolutely loved the breakfast buffet. Meeting the cows was also very special. We were greeted in the morning by a friendly sheep dog and we enjoyed that as well. The Myvatn area is lovely! Everything is close by. We enjoyed the baths tremendously. Thank you for a great experience!

  • Smelling a little bit, but the rest was good. I recommend it.

  • Clean space. Very pretty around the property. My mother took many photos from on and around the property. The shared hallway is not an issue as only the bedroom is separate from the rest of the space and the hallway can be closed off by doors in the apartment. There is no couch in the (somewhat small) living space.

  • Freydis Anna's place was exactly as described. Communication was excellent and the host checked us in happily even though we had some problems, and arrived very late at night. They don't speak much English, but Freydis' Mother was lovely, and tried her best. The apartment is comfortable and a good amount of space with all the amenities one would need. The bathroom is also quite large and every thing is brand new. We were a group of 4, so had also rented the additional bedroom that is across the hallway, and accessed via the host's hallway, but it was totally private with a divider, and we never saw the host while going back and forth. We only stayed for 1 night, and literally arrived late, and checked out in the morning, but it was a pleasant and comfortable stay, and a good location to visit all the sights around Lake Myvatn.

    Our neighbourhood is wonderful! Laugar is a beautiful place and peaceful. The evenings there can be beautiful and it's nice to walk around there, after a long day. Lake Mývatn is nearby. There take only about 20-25 minutes to drive there. Goðafoss and Dettifoss, both amazing waterfalls are day trip away. Húsavík is known for its whale watching tours and in Akureyri you can go to museums and art galleries, drink coffee or a glass of wine at some concert and enjoy the nice atmosphere that Akureyri has to offer. And we could go on and on ... and we are happy to help if our guests needs some ideas of where to go and what to see!
  • We had a very nice stay even if it has been one night shorter than planned due to road closure because of snow... The house was a perfect relaxing place after a harsh day in icelandic winds :)

    Nice new small cottage located in nice farm area. The cottage is heated with geothermal water. Very warm and cozy We have cows, sheep, horses and chicken.
    We are located close to Mývatn area, Húsavík and others nature attractions.
    Close to us are alot of beautiful nature attraction. And we are only 30 km from Húsavík. In Húsavík are 4 whale watching company. All around us is Lava fields,craters,lake, cows and on the winters we have the amazing northen ligths and the summer is hot
  • Overnight in the cabin was one of the best during our stay in Iceland. The interior is cozy and warm, and beautiful lighting from the outside. We had a problem with reaching our destination, because driving directions directed us to the wrong place (several kilometers away), but the owner quickly explained on the phone how to get to the cottage. With a bit of luck and a cloudless sky you can see the aurora from there, but unfortunately we were not lucky. The nice owner even took care of equipping the fridge with basic products for breakfast. I heartily recommend!

  • Great little cabin, very well equipped! Ari and Fredyis are golden hosts! They let us come and see the cow milking, it was really nice. They also gave us lots of advice about the roads, which in this period are difficult to pass as well as the places to see. Breakfast was also provided in the fridge, sandwich bread, jam, yoghurt ... the best ... Don't hesitate for a second to reserve your cabin. You will not be disappointed!

    Lucas2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ari and Freydis are wonderful hosts! They were very responsive to questions we had asked during our trip planning phase. They have good knowledge of the area and were able to provide sight-seeing and restaurant recommendations. More importantly, they were very communicative on the day of our arrival, as we were coming in through a snowstorm. They greeted us as soon as we pulled in, and showed us directly to the cabin. They had even shoveled out a path for us, so as to make our walk from our car easier! Very kind and thoughtful hosts! The cabin itself is cozy, comfortable and clean, with beautiful views of the farm and surrounding landscape. We only stayed for one night, and regret not staying longer. Overall, a wonderful experience!

  • Really nice place in the middle of nowhere, it's the place to go if you're looking for peace and quiet. The hosts are super friendly and talkative, always there if you have any questions. And yes, if you go in the winter and there's a clear sky, it's a good place to see the northern lights.

    Valentino2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Ari and Freydís offer a lovely stay at their farm. The cottage really exceeded our expectations: cosy with thoughtful touches, in good distance to Akureyri but remote enough. The place is very warm, (even in the middle of the Icelandic winter) and sparkling clean. It offers all the needed facilities and even has a stocked up fridge with breakfast! There are details such as a poster on the wall that tell adventure of Ari and Freydís and their farm. The hosts are super friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended!

    Łukasz2019-11-12T00:00:00Z

    Bin2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place to stay and ideally located for the North and North West of Iceland.

    Ian2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Worth the price. Place was a basement flat, space was very limited, while with all the functions you would need, including kitchen. No TV though. And the kitchen was in the same room with bedroom one, a little bit inconvenient if you cooked something with heavy smell.

    Yuchi2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • The place is exactly what you might need when you travel around Iceland. Very nice spot. I hope we will be back again.

  • Beautiful and modern cabin on a farm in a gorgeous valley! We had a great stay here. Great amenities and atmosphere. Definitely a little out of the way if you’re trying to stay near myvatn, but we loved that aspect of it. The journey to the farm was one of our favorite drives. Highly recommend

    Ethan2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • This tiny cottage was such a fun stop on our journey. Definitely off the beaten path, but the directions were easy to follow. Everything we needed for our stay. And we were greeted by some curious sheep in the morning. So fun!

    Natalie2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location with nice clean modern cabins. A little bit of a drive into the valley from the main road but the remoteness was part of it's charm. Would stay here again.

    Meaghan2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • A bit out of the way, but very idyllic. Super friendly host, who even pointed out good chances for polar lights. The cabin is well furnished and has a great box spring bed. The Wi-Fi connection is unfortunately a bit shaky.

    Tanja2019-09-02T00:00:00Z

    Macarena2019-08-13T00:00:00Z

    Nick2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • The valley around the cabin is very beautiful and the hosts are very friendly. They showed us their sheep and we talked about farming quite a bit. They are very good farmers as well as hosts.

    Kevin2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • The stayed at this cabin for one night during our trip around the Ring Road. The cabin location was a bit of a drive. If you are looking for remoteness, views, and peacefulness this is the place. The cabin is modernly decorated and very clean. The rain shower was amazing after a long day of hiking. The space, although small, was more than sufficient for 2 travelers. Wifi seemed a bit weak and would drop off at times. Would consider staying here again.

    Wiley2019-05-22T00:00:00Z

  • The cabin was clean, modern, quiet, and wonderfully secluded. Panoramic windows give an amazing view of the surrounding countryside - which is breathtaking. Be prepared for a lengthy drive off the main road (double check the description for directions), but it’s scenic and picturesque.

    Andrew2018-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Guorun is a very kind and understanding host. I highly recommend travellers to stay at the cabins.

    Roy2017-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location - a completely private valley, with the picturesque farm of Árhólar at the end. Very close to Mývatn as the crow flies, but it will take you almost an hour to drive back up the valley and back down again, depending on the weather and the state of the roads! But that's exactly what we wanted - a private place for our honeymoon, and it was absolutely perfect. The cabins are new and very well-appointed, everything inside white in tasteful modern Scandinavian design. We shopped beforehand and had everything with us for all meals for 3 days. There's a bar-fridge, microwave and a 2-burner electric stove, as well as reverse-cycle air-conditioning/heating and wifi, but no phone coverage, which suited us perfectly. The weather never cleared up enough for us to spend time walking in the valley, but the clouds disappeared one night for us to see the northern lights. We drove a minute back down the valley to where there were no houses at all, and there's no better place to look up at the heavens. There are 4 cabins side by side, just behind the farm, and plenty of sheep to keep you company. If you want to be absolutely alone in the wilderness in a rustic cabin, this won't be enough for you, but it was exactly right for us, and we cannot recommend it highly enough!

    Edward2017-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice cottage and location, a bit hard to find (google maps does not know any streets)

    Roman2017-09-22T00:00:00Z

    Jacqueline2017-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Gudrun’s place is super peaceful and nestled in the valleys. Getting there may be tricky, but if you follow the instructions it should be fairly straight forward. The night we spent there was incredible and the quiet in the morning was such a welcome relief away from the hustle and bustle of regular life!

    Anerudh2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing and beautiful place in a quiet and peaceful setting. Definitely one of the nicest places we stayed during our trip. The only challenge was finding the property as it was getting late in the evening and the sun had almost set and we were nervous we had taken a wrong turn at some point to get there. I would definitely suggest arriving during daylight hours. Overall I would highly recommend staying here!

    Bradlee2017-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Well worth the drive out of our way into this peaceful valley. We had a lovely, quiet evening here. Fair warning, Google maps was unable to find the cabin location so we used Apple maps.

    Experience the closeness to Lake Mývatn, with its amazing bird life, and wild nature. Rent a house with history in the walls, and a garden of 1.3 acres by the shoreline of Lake Mývatn with great view.
    Geiteyjarströnd 4 is an old farm, built around 1930. The house is close to Lake Myvatn. It has 2 living rooms, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a laundry room. From 1930 until 1970 farmers lived in the house. With a cowshed downstairs and an apartment on the 1 st floor. In the 70's, the house was modernized as a family home. The family of 4 lived in the house until 2010. From 2016 the house has been used as a rental property in the sommer, and as a resort for my family in the winter.
    The house is centrally located and thereby close to lot of famous attractions. It is within a walking distance to Dimmuborgir, Hverfjall, Grjótagjá and Höfdi and more. Akureyri, Húsavík, Dettifoss, Godafoss, Ásbyrgi, Hljóðaklettar og Aldeyjarfoss are all within about 1.5 hours drive from Geiteyjarströnd.
  • Charming historic cottage right on the lake! Very comfy!

  • A nice host which we met during check-in, he has a large dining & living area in this house. We used the washer & dryer provided in the basement, very much appreciated due to travelling around Iceland (Some other places do not provide these).

    Alice2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived with very high expectations as the pictures looked very good. We were not disappointed. A great location and beautiful views of Lake Myvatn. In addition, you can do a lot from there, the owner has met us directly and gave us nice tips The decor is older, but personally we liked it very much. If we come again, we will definitely stop by again.

The location is wonderful for traveling around the region - we visited Krafla, Dettifoss, the nature baths, Hverir, and more!

    Mary2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • The interiors and facilities are aging and the bedrooms are separated in the basement, which can make climbing up and down a bit difficult, but the lakeside location makes for a beautiful view.

  • The quiet and solitude at this house is quite amazing for someone who lives in the suburbs in the USA. I enjoyed the quaint farmhouse and Kristin’s photography. It had a lot of personal touch to it. Bedrooms and bathrooms were downstairs which was an interesting layout but the bathrooms were especially spacious. We were only here less than 24 hours but had a good stay and enjoyed the peace and quiet.

A bottle of wine, a small bowl of cherry tomatoes and two farm fresh eggs provided as well. The view from the back window was idyllic and so lovely. Really loved our time there!

Akureyri, Húsvík, Mývatn and Goðafoss are all within 35 minutes drive from Öndólfsstaðir farm B&B. All rooms have private bathrooms and breakfast is included in the price. Shared kitchen. Free Wifi and parking. Check in is from 16:00 until 22:00 and check out is from 07:30 until 11:00. We, Abba and Hlynur, have been welcoming guests since 2015.
    Öndólfsstaðir is a working farm with sheep, horses, chickens and two friendly dogs. Our guests are welcome to walk around on the farm and pet the animals.
  • This was the best place we stayed in Iceland (value +). It’s perhaps understated on Airbnb but Sigrour & Abba’s B&B is like staying with a helpful aunt. Our room was on the second floor, really big, spotless, with a great shower and unexpected great amenities like (to my delight) a shower cap, heated towel racks (to dry wet clothes) and a welcome chocolate each. Breakfast had a lot of variety including really nice homemade breads and cake.

  • The house is very pretty and comfortable. It is in the middle of nowhere, but very easy to reach, which gives you the chance to see northern lights in winter, we saw one! The house is very nice, hot and comfortable, Linda leaves you some food so you can have breakfast.

  • Our group of six adults enjoyed our stay here. Linda was an excellent host and only uses this house as an Airbnb. Everything was as described and clean. We really appreciated the wonderful food she had for us. Allowed us to try some local food. TV and internet worked great. Beautiful surroundings. The only negatives would be the flooring is coming up in some places and we couldn't locate a fly swatter. Highly recommend this place!

    Deanna2019-09-10T00:00:00Z

    YihTang2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nice farmhouse. The house has a very convenient location, close to the lagoon and to a whale trip. Linda answers all questions very quickly. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

    Александр2019-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Since the outside of Linda's house is yet to be rennovated, please do not be misled into thinking the house might not be nice and comfortable. The interior is fresh, comfortable, modern, convenient, well furnished and equipped. You cannot go wrong there if you enjoy a totally quiet home in a rather isolated location with a pristine, rural setting. It is an easy, scenic drive from both Myvatn and Husavik areas. We thoroughly enjoyed it there and highly recommend it.

    Wayne2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • The house is about 15 minutes drive from Lake Mi, in a ranch with a river next to it, the scenery is very beautiful. There are a lot of rooms and the kitchen is complete. We went to the hot springs at night and saw the beautiful aurora!

  • Cozy, unique and lovely home with delightful history. It was a wonderful resting point for our family.

  • Really nice and cozy apartment. It is little bit isolated but we really enjoyed it. In the house we found a lot of food for the breakfast and towels. The apartment was perfectly clean.

  • We had a wonderful stay in this house lost in the middle of nowhere We felt at home inside this house It is quite an experience to be this remote from everything Ketill made us feel very welcomed !!! Great memories !

  • The house is wonderful, located in a quite and nature environment. Everything was tidy and clean. WiFi was fast. However the supply of water and electricity in the house was a bit fluctuate. It could not handle high capacity usage at the same time ( we are a family of four). Except this situation everything was perfect. I would definitely recommend you to stay at this place if you are traveling the North Iceland.

  • Charming old building on a quiet place. High standard in general, and especially in bathroom and kitchen. Very helpful owner.

  • It is a fantastic place as there are few. Okay you have to do 16km in 20 minutes from the main road but on arrival it's unforgettable. 2 isolated houses in nature, without any noise just birds and a river. We did not meet anyone (key box) ... This is an old family house that has a story that Ketill shares with us (books, photos) In the ground floor / Ss large fully equipped kitchen (just lacking maybe a dishwasher), bathroom and laundry. On the floor of the entrance, stay / museum and a beautiful room. Upstairs 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds and a small sofa and extra bed. Full of little notes of intent for the stay goes well including yogurts (the famous Skyr), cheese, milk available given the remoteness. The price is a bit high but when you will be there you will not regret it ... The area around the lake is superb and with quite short distances, enjoy well

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rural farmhouse! It has been recently renovated with modern appliances, but it still retains its rustic charm. Here’s what you can expect: Take a trip back in time through the many antiques, pictures, and narratives that are all around the house. The Wi-Fi network was fast and reliable! FYI, we did not attempt to get a mobile phone signal, so we can’t tell you how good or bad that might be. There is no TV, which we considered to be a good thing. If you must, you can stream on your own devices over Wi-Fi. Enjoy long walks on country roads or across the grassy fields where you can see sheep, waterways, and many different types of wildflowers. When you get into the fields, there are some flying insects that could be bothersome, but the hosts have provided hats with bug nets so you can walk worry-free! Lake Myvatn is named for these flying bugs, so they should be considered a part of the adventure! Speaking of Lake Myvatn, this area has some of the best weather in all of Iceland. Sure, it rains, but not nearly as much as the southern coast. Also note that the region has a combination of beautiful waterways, volcanic structures, and green spaces all in the same region! Don’t be concerned about the country roads. Sure, there are some bumps and potholes, but any kind of car can easily manage them. The house is large enough to accommodate a fair-sized family, and it is priced quite reasonably. In fact, we paid more for a single hotel room in Vik! Plus, you get a kitchen and laundry included in the price. Since the farm is not close to any grocery stores, the owner graciously provides some basic foods to get you started. When you are in town, be sure to pick up your own groceries. The nearest restaurant is approximately 30 minutes away, and the nearest grocery is about 40 minutes away. One of the best highlights of our stay was getting a chance to meet Gudmundur, who is one of the grandsons of the original farm owner (and is the brother of Ketel, who lists the property on AirBnB). He shared some of his childhood memories and provided more of the backstory about the home and farm.

  • One of the best Airbnb's we have stayed in! We had a unique experience as the camping site was closed for the season, so we had the entire place to ourselves. The host was incredibly nice, considerate and easy-going. Breakfast in the morning was terrific. Would definitely stay again!

  • Very nice place, well equipped, swimming pool, jacuzzi at 40 degrees, large kitchen and very large common room with a piano not included! Perfect for both camping and the guest! And seen at the top!

  • When you book through airbnb you get a private room here in the campsite. The shared bathroom and kitchen facilities were like what you would expect from a campsite but clean. Overall much cheaper than booking a hotel near the area... I have never camped before so I don't know what else to expect. I was satisfied.

  • The room was nice, bed comfortable, and there wasn't any noise after 10:30 pm. The kitchen was OK, can be a bit crowded but we could always manage. The swimming pool was really great after a long day of hiking. The complementary breakfast was great, too. The staff was always nice and helpful.

    Felix2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great campsite that has guest rooms. Pool, mini golf, trampoline, foosball, children's happiness! Very attentive home! Very good camping with swimmingpool, mini golf, trampoline! A wonderful place for children. So nice welcome.

  • He is a very helpful and accommodating host. It is a pleasure to meet such people. Do not hesitate to stop there.

  • Great accommodation with good facilities. Breakfast is included in the booking though it was never mentioned in the listing. The host is a super nice guy who supplied me with hot water for tea few times, even late at night :) We liked our doule room which was specious and clean. It was only a one-night stay with somewhat late arrival time so we did not get a chance to swim in the pool.
