    Beds were comfy. Room and bath spacious. Living/dining room were pleasant to hang out in and chat with other guests and host. Great chef kitchen if you want to make a meal. Basics are provided so you don’t have to worry about coffee, cereal and milk. Home made bread!!! You could easily stay here a week. Plenty of info on local sites. Thanks Johann for a lovely visit.

    Un lieu formidable au milieu d'une nature époustou

    Une superbe maison de famille. Notre chambre était spacieuse avec une belle salle de bains. La cuisine est toute équipée et il y a également un très bon lave-linge/sèche-linge. Très belle terrasse avec barbecue. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié notre hôte pour sa disponibilité et ses informations sur l'histoire, la culture et les visites environnantes. Il a également plein d'attentions pour ses invités : pain frais et gâteaux maison chaque jour et le frigo est garni pour le petit déjeuner avec oeufs, lait, beurre, confitures, fromage. Sans compter le thé et le café (du vrai) à disposition. Tout cela rend le prix justifié. Nous recommandons vivement cette adresse. D'autres part la situation au centre de toutes les richesses de la région justifie bien d'y rester 2 jours. MYVATN et ses environs sont MAGNIFIQUES.

    Der große Aufenthaltsraum mit Küche ist wunderbar. Wir konnten uns Mahlzeiten selbst zubereiten und waren nicht auf Restaurantbesuche angewiesen. Es war definitiv die für uns beste Unterkunft auf unserer 2-wöchigen Rundreise auf Island. Der Vermieter schickt einen Tag vorher einen Link mit der Wegbeschreibung. Wir hatten versäumt unsere mails zu checken. Der Wegweiser nach „Birkiland“ ist auf jeden Fall richtig. Man fährt dann eine Schotterstraße bis zum Haus.

    ein perfekter Ort für Ausflüge und Gemütlichkeit

    die check-in-Zeit ist super flexibel! es gibt nur 4 Zimmer (mit eigenem Bad), dadurch ist es sehr klein und fein! der Hausherr ist persönlich vor Ort, hat Ausflugstipps oder kommt einfach mal vorbei einen Kaffee trinken! tolle Gemeinschaftsküche mit großem Esstisch und Wohnzimmer, wo gekocht und getrascht wird oder man auch einfach nur ein Buch lesen kann!! wir würden sofort wieder buchen!!
