"I booked this location for a short stay where my friends and I could make a base to see the south coast of Iceland. Stokkseyri is a small town that relies on Selfoss (10km) for many markets and services. The town is even quieter and more charming a a result. The house is very well equipped and nice. Kristin and her parents are sweet and accommodating. They communicated well and provided much helpful information prior to and during the stay. The nearby lobster restaurant was a treat...the local lobster is sweet and tender and the lobster soup makes my mouth water even now."Guest: Rich Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 28, 2014View listing
"The owner is fantastic and helpfull. Picked us up early at the bus station and gave as a quick tour of where everything is located. The apartment is very spacious and we had 3 people. It is a seniors building but that just means you get peace and quiet. We had 20 yr olds with us and they loved it too. It has everything you need. Car rental across the street and shops minutes away. Rates are excellent and worth every penny! Would stay here again for sure."Guest: Amelia F. Date of Stay: May 2014 Review Submitted: June 1, 2014View listing
"We were so very happy with our stay in this lovely apartment. The owner, Burkni, was so very accommodating and a wonderful host. We learned a lot about my ancestors from Iceland and the area they came from just from our talks with Burkni. We could not have been happier with our choice to stay here and we hope to return for a longer stay in the future! We will never forget our wonderful stay in Iceland! Thanks Burkni and the best to you and your family. Kindly, Your new friends from Edmonton, Canada"Guest: Denise L. Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: October 22, 2014View listing
"We were a group of 6 and the house was perfect for us. There was someone there to greet us upon our arrival which was a nice touch. The home was well kept, plenty of beds, and the hot tub was a nice touch. A lot of home for an excellent price! Thank you!"Guest: Cheryl Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 1, 2014View listing
