Beautiful place, wonderful hosts

Absolutely wonderful place with great amenities. Our hosts were so hospitable, and their concern for our well being is unforgettable. The farm visit was a highlight during our time at Mývatn, and being city kids, this was a first. Absolutely wonderful experience.

Excellent Apartment

The apartment was great, spacious and very comfortable. It seems that everything was new and very well kept. Shower, facilities and rooms were excellent. The host was very kind and helpful. Location is great both for activities and for quiet relaxing.

Super comfortable farm stay

This was the best place we stayed in over 2 weeks in Iceland. The 2 bedroom apartment had a lovely comfortable style, a good kitchen, really comfortable beds, nice bath products, daily fresh towels and its own washing machine. The location was very quiet.
