About This Listing
Cozy room in a beautiful house in quiet surroundings in the heart of Hafnarfjörður, only 15 minutes from Reykjavík center (by car) and 30 minutes from Keflavík Airport. 1 double bed.
The house is over 100 years old and has played a historically important role in Hafnarfjörður.
We have a beautiful garden where you can enjoy the evening sun.
The house is in walking distance from the famous viking village, the local geothermal swimming pool, the Hellisgerði elf garden and many of the town's most interesting museums.
The house is in walking distance from the central bus station in Hafnarfjörður, with connections to Reykjavík every 15 minutes.
We have a small dog. She does not bite and is very kind to guests.
A big kitchen and two bathrooms
Jonina's place was absolutely lovely. She had great advice, was accommodating but also allowed us to come and go as we pleased. I definitely recommend staying with her because it will save you from more expensive places in the center of Rejkyavik, but is only a 10-minute drive away. Well worth it. Also just on the water - close to a running route, grocery stores, some restaurants, and a coffee shop. Closer to the airport too than being in the city and easy to find parking in the surrounding area!
Everything was perfect! We highly recommend this lovely place and would stay again there if we come back to Iceland.
At first we dodnt know what to expect, we traveled threw Airbnb for the first time. But we were so positive suprised!! Everything was so relaxed, so confortable (the view from the room is stunning) that we felt like at home. Jonina introduce as her home and gave us really good tips for wisiting and eating out-that you cant find in any guide! She helped us to feel in love even more with the Iceland and its people, houses, countryside and food! The city stands on lava, we loved little palette bar and the bakery at the corner! We cant say nothing more than thank you Jonina and Oscar for kind Wellcome we got and all the little thing that made our too short trip even better!! XOXO Špela and Rok from Slovenia
I can not say enough good things about our experience. My husband and I stayed here two different times and for a total of four nights during our week-long holiday to Iceland. We immediately felt at home. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room was very warm and cozy, and the bedroom window had the best view of Hafnarfjodur. We quickly fell in love with the town, and unexpectedly so, as we did not know much information about Hafnarfjodur before booking our stay here. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Jonina, but Oskar was so friendly and helpful when we were interested in looking at the locations that have been preserved for the elves. If you plan a stay here, I highly recommend visiting Hellisgerði park, which is just a block or two away from the home. Also, our absolute favorite place to have breakfast was at Súfistinn, which is also walking distance from their home. We really hope to come back and visit Iceland again soon. When we do, we are definitely staying here again!
I had the opportunity to leave another 5 stars, so I am :)
We had such a great time staying with Jonina and Oskar, they are both extremely helpful and very kind hosts. The house is clean and tidy and we had plenty of room to keep things in the kitchen and our bedroom. Privacy is also not an issue even with other guests staying at the same time. The town is peaceful and safe and has great connections to Reykjavik (30-40 minutes on the bus that runs everyday), and even though Hafnarfjordur is small, there is still plenty to see.
If you're planning on going to Iceland then I can't recommended this place enough, I would not hesitate to stay here again and have greatly enjoyed my time here.
