Our room at Lára's place was one of the biggest throughout our travels in Iceland. It was clean, bright, and comfortable. The directions to the guesthouse were a little vague but it's right off of Route 1/Ring Road; if heading west out of Vík, drive 2.8km past the turnoff for Reynisfjara and the Svarta Fjaran/Black Beach restaurant. The driveway for the guesthouse will be on your right. We didn't meet Lára but getting access to the guesthouse and our room was made easy by her detailed instructions. There was a nice shared kitchen and dining area including a small patio with a table and chairs to enjoy a meal outside. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect location for exploring Vik and the surrounding area. The rooms were very nice and clean, and the kitchen had everything we needed. I really liked that the room we stayed in had a small sink and blackout curtains.

Well located guesthouse, easy check-in because the door is open and can read the number of the room matching the name of the guest, so don't have to bother to call or arrive at a precise time. The owner always communicated quickly and gave all information needed. The place is very clean with a completed equipped kitchen, two wc/shower so no queue ..., the room is very big, with a small sink in the room that is very comfortable and useful. We were very happy of this accommodation .

The guesthouse was great! We had a spacious room with a great view of the ocean. It was easy to figure out where our room was and the key was in the door waiting for us. Great location for exploring Vík and the surrounding locations. It seemed like the guesthouse is thoughtfully taken care of with the little touches like flowers in the window. :)

Lara’s place is lead in a quite professional way. When we arrived I found my name in a list in the line of room #4, the key was in the door, everything easy and self-explanatory. Our room was clean and so was the well-equipped kitchen that guests can use and where we cooked some spaghetti. The house seemed crowded and it was a bit noisy, but after 22:30h everything was quiet and we had a good night. There were 2 shared bathrooms, additionally we had a little sink in our room, so we did not have to leave it to brush our teeth. Lara baked a cake for the guests, it was very good and highly appreciated!
