About this listing

Welcome to my beautiful and comfortable homestay. Soak in panoramic views of the Faxaflói bay from an eclectic and artsy environment. I rent out two rooms at my home. My art studio is located in the first story of the building.

The space

A serene setting with expansive vistas conducive to repose. The house is set on the end of a peninsula poetically named Saeunn - Sea, she who is loved. All views from the kitchen and living room are stunning. The interior is comfortable and elegant. The walls are adorned with artworks. This room is furnished with a comfortable king size bed with linens, is equipped with black out blinds and curtains for our midnight sun and accesses a half-bath (commode and sink) which is adjacent the room (not en-suite).

Guest access

The full bath, living area and kitchen are shared spaces. Feel at home to cook a meal in the kitchen. The Kitchen may be used from 10 am to 10 pm and the is equipped with pots, pans and spices. Enjoy the views from the living room at any time. From 10 pm to 8 am are quiet hours in the living room.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to give directions or recommendations. Let us know if there's something special you need, otherwise we will give you space to enjoy the quiet views. Sometimes we have friends or family over for a visit. It's usually quiet however sometimes it's just like a normal home.

Other things to note

Important:
We are licensed to rent rooms in our home. Please note Airbnb has 2 kinds of listings; Bed and Breakfast and Room. We are listed as a room.

We are happy to share our home and hope you feel at home. We are not a hotel or guesthouse we're a couple of nice artists sharing our space. My boyfriend and I have other vocations, and also may attend to work and family. Most of the year we're at home, now and again we travel abroad. Sometimes to exhibit or visit family, in which case a family member is usually home. Our home has many rooms aside from the 2 rooms we host at Airbnb.

We have three extremely affectionate cats at home, they like belly rubs and to be petted. They are indoor and outdoor Icelandic cats and have their own entry.

You may arrive anytime after five. There is a lock box with a key for arrival flexibility and detailed instructions with the location of your room. Feel free to use our kitchen to prepare your breakfast. Also the bakery has many nice treats and opens early.


Weather:
The weather in Iceland is very unpredictable and extreme. Please take care when renting a car outside of the summer season to be sure it's a four wheel or all wheel drive.

Upon arrival:
When you arrive in the afternoon it's advisable to grocery shop close to keflavik, there is also Vinbudin which sells wine and beer. Grocery stores do not sell alcohol. The taxes are high so it's advisable to by your drink of choice at duty free as you exit the (URL HIDDEN) you arrive and are hungry Cafe Duus in Keflavik is an awesome beginning.

Great room, super good location. You'll find the host most accommodating during your stay in a really unique town. My wife and I did two nights, and wish we had planned more. Thanks again Michelle.

I had the fortunate experience of staying with Michelle on one super windy day in Iceland. Michelle was friendly, made sure I had everything I needed and her place and the room were beautiful overlooking the water and mountains. I would highly recommend Michelle's place to anyone.

Michelle User ProfileMichelle is a superhost.

I'm an artist. I love cloudscapes, seascapes, shell fish and blueberries. Cooking, wine tasting, and coastal hikes. I'm learning the Tango and Icelandic. Both are challenging. I love to travel whether it be hiking, walking, biking, tuk tuks, rickshas, taxi's, limo's, canoes, boating, sailing, ballooning, cruising, or flying...but don't like to drive.
