About Bára

My husband, Erik is a carpenter and he (and me as his handyman) have built this house during the years 1981-1986. After the kids had grewn up and moved away we changed the part of the house and made this cozy little apartment that we now rent out to tourists.

So everything is more or less done with our own hands.

Bára purchased this apartment in 1981

What makes this apartment unique

Our community, Mosfellsbaer is so peaceful and beautiful little town and bringing children up here in such a family friendly environment is a privilege. We live 'almost in the country' yet so close to Reykjavik with only 15 minutes driving to the center of Reykjavik.

The apartment we made is simple and our main concern is to have it always clean and comfortable and to our opinion and to others that have written in our guestbook, then it is obvious that we have succeeded in doing so.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your wonderful apartment and your generous hospitality over the days that we have been with you.

This has been our first visit to Iceland. Everyone has been so friendly and helpful.

We have happy memories of Gullfoss and other wonderful waterfalls in the South, the experience of swimming out-of-doors in various thermal pools and the highlight - going out from Reykjavik and seeing many minke whales.

We will never forget your kindness.

Quiet, Clean Property an Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Bara and Erik's apartment was great. They greeted us warmly as we arrived, all jet-lagged, and gave us good guidance about where to find grocery stores locally, etc.

The apartment was unbelievably clean, plus nice and warm, although simply furnished. There were tour books and guide books galore to browse, plus maps that were helpful. It was so much nicer having some room to spread out, rather than being confined to a small hotel room. We choose to stay just outside of Reykjavik rather than in the city and we were pleased with our choice.

Do note that the bed in the bedroom is a double, not a queen size, but the sleeper sofa was fairly comfortable and there were extra pillows and blankets.

We would recommend this property to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay and your valuable review for future guests. Even though the size of the bed (a doublebed) is mentioned in the desciption it's only good to name it for others to see.
Thank you again and we hope you have taken enjoyable memories with you from Iceland.

Very nice appartment with connection to the garden

  • 5 of 5
Very nice appartment with connection to the garden and grill! The description was accurate and the location easy to find.
The property was very clean and extremely good maintained.
Bára and Erik were very friendly and helped to find the major things needed so we would definitely recommend the location to people visiting Iceland.
Though we did not have the best weather we enjoyed our visit to Southern Iceland very much (with the exception of some side roads that shook us a bit). Iceland is quite expensive but the people are very friendly to overcome this disadvantage :-)

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying and you are always welcome again.
The weather has not been so good for the SV-corner of Iceland but the North and NorthEast part was pretty hot (over 20°C which we concider really hot!)
If there is one thing for sure that one can not predict for than that is the weather here but it is good to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Iceland.

Wunderbarer Urlaub!

  • 5 of 5
Liebe Bara, lieber Erik,
wir hatten wundervolle 14 Tage in der Wohnung. Sie war hervorragend eingerichtet; für das erste Frühstück war der Kühlschrank gefüllt+Kaffee+Tee standen bereit.
Die Terrasse und der überdachte Eingang gefielen uns auch, da Irmgard hier in Ruhe rauchen konnte.
Was wir vermissten war ein deutscher Fernsehsender, aber Dank des WLANs war es uns auch so möglich deutsche Nachrichten zu verfolgen.
Das Wetter in den 14 Tagen war sehr schön, so dass wir viele Touren machten (3500 km) und jeden Abend froh waren wieder in die ruhige Wohnung zu kommen, wo dann Pläne für den nächsten Tag geschmiedet wurden.
Da es uns so gut gefiel, werden wir in zwei Jahren noch einmal nach Mosfellbaer kommen.
Nochmals vielen Dank!
Irmgard und Manfred

Owner's Response: Thank you Manfred and Irmgard so much for staying in our apartment,
you are excellent guests and are always welcome.
Thank you for mentioning the TV and the lack of German news channels, of course there needs to be a good selection of foreign news channels. We fix that :)

Very nice hosts!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent our honeymoon on iceland and had some wonderful days in the apartments of Bara and Eirikur who gave us a really warm welcome in Mosfellsbaer. Already by planning our trip weeks before they gave us a special support and confirmed this on our arrival with tipps and maps for sightseeing and more. The apartments are equiped comfortable, practical and benign. The City of Reykjavik and the interesting spots of the surrounding are easy to reach.
We are looking forward to visit Bara and Eirikur for one more time on our next stay in iceland and wish them all the best!!! Gina and Marc

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We looked at many places to stay prior to traveling to Iceland. This one kept popping up in our many searches. We have to say it was a delight staying here. The location was perfect for our planned itinerary, with easy access to the main road and close to grocery and fuel. Very peaceful with a spectacular view of Esja. It was wonderful to return to in the evening after a long day of exploring. Bara was extremely helpful and available when we had questions about the surrounding area.

Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

Owner's Response: Thank you Paul and family for your stay at our apartment and we are pleased to hear that you liked it. Yes, I can agree to that our location suits those who want to explore the South-West corner of Iceland.
You are always welcome =o) and if you would like to go the Ring Road then you can start here as your first stop ... just an idea!

We have a good hiking, walking and cycling path network and a short walking distance is to the ocean where a bird watching house is at the sea shore.

Ski: Skálafell is the name of the nearest ski-area. About 30 min. drive is to the mountain that has several lifts and one chair lift. Bláfjöll is another ski-area in within one hour drive, larger ski-area with lots of ski lifts.
