About Dagmar Eiriksdottir
We are a family of four and a dog. We keep horses on the fields around the house and enjoy them throughout the year. Our chickens provide fresh eggs and are an endless source of joy as they run or stroll their way around the property. We are all passionate about the nature of Iceland and enjoy travelling ourselves. For over ten years we have been working in the highlands during summers as hut wardens, welcoming and taking care of hikers from all over the world. We are happy to welcome you and hope we may make your stay pleasurable.
Dagmar Eiriksdottir purchased this Farmhouse in 1998
Why Dagmar Eiriksdottir chose Southern Peninsula
Narfakot has everything we long for, the sea, vast horizon, close to Reykjavík yet rural, quiet and privet. It offers the freedom and closeness to nature we want our children to grow up in. We enjoy the intensity of the elements and the beautiful Reykjanes Peninsula.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Here the elements invite you to share a unique experience. While watching ocean tides splash along the coast, you can listen to the calls of the various sea birds. You experience the wonder of the midnight sun while enjoying some of the most beautiful sunsets. You are surrounded by peaceful countryside in a geothermal area that has unlimited walking and hiking possibilities in an endless variation of hills, mountains, lava streams and lakes, all bordered by the wild Atlantic Ocean where you may even spot whales and seals passing by.

Exactly what we expected. Just lovely!
We chose this apartment because it looked peaceful and clean and that’s exactly what it is complete with complementary eggs from their farm and “marriage cake” to welcome us. Thank you for the hospitality!
Dramatic, open landscape!
Really lovely (if brief) stay with 2 kids in the open, cozy loft space. We were greeted immediately (with welcoming treats!) on our arrival and left to the quiet of our evening. Would stay again, for longer next time! Thank you so much!!
This apartment is close to the city and airport, yet far enough away to be quiet and have a wonderful, peaceful view. Great base for Reykjavik day trips.
Be sure to bring apples for the ponies and treats for Raven, the dog.
Read the property description carefully and the other reviews. This is a wonderful apt., but it is a farm stay and not a hotel. We loved it, but make sure you can navigate the stairs.
The deck overlooking the lighthouse and ocean and ponies is a place you will not want to leave.
Amazing-Northern Lights viewed from private balcony overlooking Atlantic Ocean
We have stayed at many properties all over the world... This was by far one of our most favorite!! Very clean, spacious, welcoming and waking up to the views of ocean, farm and lighthouse were absolutely breathtaking!! We stood on the private balcony for hours watching the northern lights dance to the sound of ocean waves! And when it got too cold and windy to watch from there... We went inside to our beds where there were skylights placed over the beds to watch aurora show or gaze at stars. The owner was very friendly and welcomed us late at night to her property. There were fresh baked treats waiting for us along with a fine selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate! I highly recommend this house... And it is very convenient to some of the best sights in Iceland, although you may not even want to leave the property at all!!!
Wonderful home away from home to explore south Iceland
Exactly as described, cozy and warm, great hosts and a super friendly dog!
By the Lighthouse was perfect in every way! We are also VRBO owners that rent our South Carolina beach house. With 33 five-star reviews, we try extra hard to provide the best experience for our own guests, and of course, expect that same level of service in return when we travel. By the Lighthouse did not disappoint during our two-night stay. The description is accurate and the photos are current. There were three of us and the loft had more space than we needed, and was very clean. The bathroom was large enough and also very clean and updated. In advance, Dagmar provided us a lot of information about things to see and do (which we did and they were great) as well as detailed directions which were vital as area is off the beaten path. She greeted us with traditional Icelandic bread, apples and some eggs from her own chickens. The kitchen is well-stocked with extras you don't usually find in a rental. The weather was cold and windy but our enthusiasm was not dampened with so many breathtaking views out of each window. We could sit at the kitchen table and see both the snow-covered mountains in the distance and our daughter playing with the family dog down in the yard. The grazing sheep and horses provided never-ending entertainment and looked great in our videos and photos. Our family walk over lava rocks towards the lighthouse was so memorable. We really hated to leave Lighthouse by the Sea. Most certainly we would recommend it to anyone travelling to Iceland. It's close to the airport and other important sights, yet very secluded and private. Truly, it's a unique opportunity to lodge on the same property as a lighthouse, sheep, horses, chickens and a dog. We loved it!
