We are a german icelandic family and have both worked in tourism and hotels. We are passionate about our own farm and guesthouse project!
We had a great time at Martina and Jóns house!
Good conversations, yummie and healthy breakfast, nice room with a great view to the bay. Jón gave us very good tips for our trips in the south of Island, never would see this places - so thanks a lot!
We stayed for two nights in April 2014. Martina and Jon were very warm, welcoming and laid back hosts. Jon helped us plan some great local activities and helped us to plan our onward journey. Martina's breakfasts were as beautiful as they were tasty. The house is located in a beautiful valley just outside of Vik, with stunning views from the bedroom. The room had a side door onto a balcony which meant we didn't have to traipse through the house each time we came in, which was handy. A great range of teas were available whenever we wanted a good cuppa. There is loads to do in Vik and the surrounding area and two restaurants in the town so it makes a really great base for exploring this stunning area of Iceland. Would definitely visit again!
We stayed here for two nights in early April and absolutely loved it. The view from the bedroom is unbelievable--green pastures, snowy mountains, craggy rock formations on the nearby black sand beach. Jon made us a spectacular breakfast and made tons of helpful suggestions as to where we should go and how best to get there. The location is perfect for day trips to the glacier lagoon and all the beaches and waterfalls in the area. A truly lovely experience.
My husband and I stayed here for a couple nights while we were in Iceland, and it was perfect for what we were looking for. Jon was a great host. He was fun to talk to and gave excellent advice on places to go and things to do, and the breakfast was delicious!
We loved our stay with Martina and Jón. Their house is lovely and warm, has great views and is in a great location. The best part of the stay though, was our host! Jón was very welcoming and accommodating and full of interesting conversation. The breakfast was one of the very best we had on our trip (fresh cheese and bread from the farm!) and Jón gave us great advice about where to go, what to eat and what to see. Make sure to ask about visiting the pool in the mountains...
We would love to go back and would stay with Martina and Jón in a heartbeat.
The room and house were great and situated perfectly in the valley right near Vik. We arrived a bit late but Jón was very accommodating. He took great care of us and laid out the best breakfast we had the entire trip. He also recommended some sites for us to visit that we would have completely overlooked otherwise. They ended up being the highlights of our trip! I'd definitely recommend staying here.
Very comfortable place in nice surroundings; and including a delicious breakfast from locally produced food. Highly recommended!
A cozy, comfortable place I stayed for one night. Jón and the place gave me a wonderful experience in Iceland! Jón is an amazing host, the bed is very clean and very well equipped (and of course the wonderful breakfast!). And I saw the Northern light while my staying that night. I hope I'll go back soon one day!
Amazing host that was very helpful with recommendations for area. I definitely would recommend this place for anyone traveling through the area.
What a lovely cosy, clean and comfortable home in a great location if you are on a road trip around the south of Iceland. We had a lovely stay here and Jon made us feel very comfortable and gave us wonderful advise, checking weather for us and helping us plan our trip. I hope I will have the opportunity to stay here again!!
Everything was perfect , it was very nice to host Martina at Ciuri Home!
Es war ein Vergnügen, Martina hosten. Multi-ethnische Familie und sehr interessante Leute. Gäste auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen!
