“Hafdis’s place was very easy to find, and she gave great instructions on what to do upon arriving. The place was much bigger than I expected and very clean! The location was perfect for us as we flew in that morning and spent the entire day exploring. Hafdis also gave us great recommendations for waterfalls and other points of interest that we would have otherwise skipped. The kitchen was great because eating out in Iceland is expensive. You really can’t beat the view out the kitchen window either! We shopped at the Bonus grocery store down the road and cooked dinner and breakfast here. The bed was so comfortable we overslept, but Hafdis was very understanding and didn’t make us rush out to make check-out time exactly. Their pup is very cute and friendly. What a lovely stay!”
Small and cozy single room apartment close to activities in Borgarnes as you can walk to places like Landnámssetrið, Kaffi Kyrrð, Englendingavík, swimming pool, gym etc. This apartment was built in 2019
“This studio apartment was perfect. It is centrally located and within easy walking distance of most things in town. We found the space to be very new and clean. The bed was quite comfortable and they had most everything you need to cook a meal in the kitchen easily. The shower had great pressure. They even provided good coffee for the morning. When we first pulled up we were a bit turned off by a pop up camper in the driveway that was up and open (not knowing if someone lived in it). As well as the overgrown yard even with the owner warning us of the space needing landscaping . Once we got into the unit at the back of the driveway we were happy with our choice. The space is well appointed, comfortable and clean. The Wi-Fi was not as strong as we had hoped. Overall, we would recommend this apartment without a doubt.”
Downstairs is an integrated kitchen/livingroom and a bathroom and upstairs are two bedrooms. The house is situated in the heart of Borgarnes. There are several restaurants and cafés in walking distance, there are 200 m to the supermarket and the swimming pool is 700 m away. Borgarnes is the perfect location if you are planning several day trips to explore West Iceland, as there are many beautiful spots to discover.
“Stephanie's place was great! We especially loved the shower which had a neat open design, fantastic water pressure, and no sulfur scent to the water (which can occur given Iceland's geothermal activity). The washing machine is a helpful addition but you'll need to plan accordingly to hang/lay out your clothes to dry. The place is conveniently located to grocery stores and a bakery that's open early in the morning. There's an example of a small turf-roof barn/building structure barely a short walk behind the home. The house was very clean, well-decorated, stayed very warm during our stay during early winter, and was an amazing home base as we explored the surrounding areas. Stephanie was an amazing host and was very accommodating with our check-in time. It was an awesome first rest stop for our trip and we wished could have stayed longer.”
