The space

Gunnarshólmi is very well located only 15km from Reykjavik Centrum. Here it is possible to stay in the country side and nurish the soul and body in a relaxed environment. Here you can find remains from how Icelandic agriculture was in the old days as here was a large agricultural estate established in 1928. Today there is a free range chicken farm in Gunnarshólmi.

We live in a house close by so if our guests need anything they can always stop by.

Interaction with guests

Will meet guests upon arrival and departure and are happy to help. Will be reachable any time if any requests or information is needed.

Stunning property, very quiet even with the main road near by with horses to greet you as you park :) Other guests were very respectful and quiet. Bathrooms were clean. The kitchen was the best part - everything you could ever need! Utensils, spices, oils and a big refrigerator. Beds were very comfortable and the blinds helped keep that summer light out well. We got to meet Jona Margret's daughter since she was out of town - she was so nice and even gave us some recommendations for her favorite places to see! Very happy to find a unique say in Iceland close enough to Reykjavik and other areas we wanted to visit. Thank you!!

Jona was a great host-- super generous and responsive. She was always there if you had a question. She lives next door but comes daily to do laundry, to clean the bathroom etc. We had free range of her kitchen which was great as we could cook and pack our snacks for the day. We could use anything on the shelves and use the fridge for our groceries. I highly recommend this place. It was a great launch pad for the Golden Circle and not far from Reykjavik.

We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful host! Jona is very kind and accommodating. The location is near Reykjavik for good food and groceries and is a great starting point to see the golden circle

We had a great stay at Jona's place. She is a very kind and helpful host. The guest house is located about 15 min away from the center of Reykjavik. If you have a car and like calm environment, this is definitely a good place. We had a very comfortable, warm room with nice view. We could even see the nothen lights from there. Access to the kitchen is a big advantage: we could prepare our food and also meet nice people from all around the world. Thank you!

This was a perfect stay for us! I found the location great because we did not want to be directly in the City. The kitchen was wonderful and very well stocked and Jona was able to help whenever we needed anything!

We really enjoyed staying here during our time in Iceland. It is only a short drive away from Reykjavik, but I would definitely recommend renting a car because I'm not sure if public transportation is nearby. The room was spacious and well equipped with a dresser and desk. The bathroom was very clean and we were able to use the kitchen. We would definitely stay here again!
