The moment I walked in I felt I was at home. However, what made the experience is the host in the morning. Over coffee, I had a good conversation with the proprietor and he absolutely set my day off on the right foot. He was telling all about his personal experiences with the Eyjafjallajökull volcano and showed me a book and some personal photos. I also was able to ask some questions about like in general in the Skógafoss area. He also has the most friendly border collie a person could ever know. I delayed leaving in the morning because I so enjoyed the company plus the information.
Please, if you are driving the south coast or the ring road, stop here for great conversation, and a homey feel. I have already decided that when I return to Iceland, I will make a point to stay here again. My favorite guest house I stayed in during my time in Iceland.
Also, checking in is easy-you can come in at any time and they are ready. The breakfast with homemade pancakes was great! At least the night I was there, the guests were quiet but friendly in the morning. There are games and books available as well, and great views of the ocean and fields and mountains and Vestmannaeyjar island. And truly local advice. Thank you for the wonderful experience!!!!!
