Our house is placed under a big rock. That kind of rock that some people believe the Icelandic elfs used to live under. There also is quite a few folktales about them, the elfs. Especially about an invisible elf woman called Vigdís.
Inside this special house you will find a big bedroom. It is approx. 20 m2 and is situated on the first floor. We have a small WC also on the first floor but the main bathroom is on the second floor. The kitchen and the living room are on the second floor, with a great view.
There are 13 km to the public pool which is old with no electricity but in a beautiful valley called Selárdalur.
When you come in to town you drive to the first crossroad and then turn left and again to left. Our two floor house is under a big rock and is white and blue.
We had a lovely stay at Kristin's place :) it was very cozy and after so many camping nights it was nice to sleep in that big comfortable bed :)
The breakfast the other day was very delicious.
Kristin and her family are really friendly hosts:)
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Great place to stay.
Kristin and her family was very friendly and I really enjoyed staying there. They even offered me delicious Icelandic soup for dinner. Thank You!
Friendly clean accommodation. Big big bed!
Kirstin was very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this accommodation.

Great place. The room was clean and quite large with everything we needed.
We really enjoyed our stay here and felt a warm welcome from Kristin and her family. The room was spacious with a beautiful view. We were served a very nice breakfast in the morning. On her recommendation, we enjoyed a nice walk around town. Vopnafjordur is a little bit out of the way if you are traveling the Ring Road, but it's worth a visit if you have time, and this is a great place to stay!
This host is very friendly and gives a warm welcome. The room is very spacious with a king size bed and clean linens and towels are plentifully supplied. The host is also willing to share kitchen facilities if needed and is very gracious about this. I would recommend this place to anyone in the area.
This room was really spacious and the king size bed was great. We had very good communication with Kristin before our stay but she wasn't there when we arrived - her husband and kids were nice enough to welcome us in her absence, though.
The room is in the ground floor (the living room and the other bedrooms are upstairs) and it has a toilet room across the hallway, so even though you can see that there's definitely a family living there... you'll have absolutely no problems with privacy.
I would definitely recommend staying at Kristin's house if you happen to be exploring East Iceland.
We spent an excellent night under an Elf Rock in Vopnafjordur. Kristin was a wonderful host, very nice and welcoming, and even let us do some laundry and gave us tips on the area's swimming pool (which was fantastic, by the way). If you ever decide to get off the beaten track in East Iceland, this is a great place to stay while you're there!
