"My family had a great week staying at Hofdatun, with Thorey giving a very warm welcome from the start. The house is great, with lots of space, very comfortable, and in a good location for seeing the Golden Circle and South coast at a pleasant pace.
Also a great location if you want to see the Northern Lights. We saw them 3 nights out of 7.
We would definitely stay there again if we're fortunate enough to be able to visit Iceland again."

"I stayed in this lovely, artistic apartment with my friend and three teenage boys. We were able to park our car in a convenient location, and found it invaluable if you like to avoid bus tours. Restaurants, the grey line, the harbor, and park (with lively bands) were all within easy walking distance. Burkni was a wonderful host and was generous with his time and information. Not liking lamb or fish, I fully expected to lose weight in Iceland. Wrong! The restaurants were wonderful! I better hit the gym hard before making my next trip!"

"This was a great property. The caretaker was very accommodating by letting us in the property early to drop off our luggage. This home easily fit all 7 of us without feeling like we were on top of each other. It is also within easy walking distance to a grocery store. There are walking paths down by the river that are accessed from the side of the property. These are nice for going for a walk or a run."

"We stayed at our host's home for four nights during our first visit to Iceland. The cottage is even better than described and pictured; the bed provides a great sleep, the house is laid out beautifully (artwork is wonderful!), and the owner is kind enough to leave all you might need for your stay- paper towels, clear instructions for trash and tv, extra towels, etc.
I can't convey how ideal the location is. The cottage is a stone's throw away from a great coffe shop/cafe, a square with quick food and nicer restaurants, and the wharf. Reykjavik is easily walkable, and the cottage puts you in the best possible starting location for exploration. There is space for rental car parking, and the home feels like home- it is in the oldest part of Reykjavik and provides a modern feel while also allowing you to stay in a true neighborhood and a house with personality and history.
Our host could not have been more wonderful to work with as we planned our trip. She provided helpful info and was always speedy with her communication. She set us up for a great experience, and we had one! Many thanks."
