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 Iceland

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. On a clear day it is possible to see Snæfellsjökull glacier where in November 1993 people from all over the world gathered to welcome the UFO´S that were expected to land at the foot of this magical volcano. In winter you can indulge your senses watching the Northern Lights dancing in the heavens.

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.

Nice place for anyone wanting to be near the city but not IN the city, but too expensive considering

  • 3 of 5

Nice farm house loft area - super nice family - she even baked a cake for us! But the tight spiral staircase was just that - very tight - making it a little difficult to get the luggage up and down, and going to the restroom (downstairs) less than convenient. The gabled sloping ceiling that comes with sleeping in a loft is charming and fun unless you forget about it in the dark as I did when getting up to go downstairs in the middle of the night to use the restroom... I walked so unwittingly and firmly into it that it took my feet right out from under me dropping me to the floor - my wife thought I had broken through the floor or broken my rear end based on the booming crash and "ouch!" I probably woke everyone in the family below as well... but alas, this is not due to a faulty home - just my own clumsiness. But don't forget the slope in the dark and do the same thing! Being on the beach was great - the animals were cool - the place comfortable- our main complaint was the necessity of going up and down the stairs so much and what we considered too high a price by at least an extra $40 or $50 US dollars.

Owner's Response: This is a very valuable review as it emphasises the importance of reading the description of the property and view the pictures carefully before booking. It is important to make sure the property involved is suitable for once needs. To my future guests, as said in the description “the bathroom is downstairs with a shower” in the photo section is a picture of the staircase and below written “Narrow staircase, width 60cm”. The loft is with a sloping ceiling as clearly shown on the photos. Please view the photos and read the text.

The Perfect Family Mini-Break

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing long weekend at this property. The views are beyond stunning...every window had the most amazing view that literally made you catch your breath. The space was perfect for the three of us...one large studio space with everything that you can need. The kitchen space was fully equipped and Dagmar even left coffee, tea, fresh eggs from her chickens and delicious homemade granola bars for our stay. The space was SPOTLESS and the beds and linens were so comfortable. Dagmar left lots of information for us about the area and local attractions and was available if we needed anything. The property is perfectly located for everything we wanted to do...Reykjavik, the Golden Circle loop, the Southern Pennisula and the Blue Lagoon. It was the perfect home base for our long daily treks to take in the sights and beauty of this gorgeous country. We hope to return one day to see Iceland in the Spring/Summer and we will definitely stay here again!

Wish we could have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

We only had one night stay on a stop over flight. The loft space was warm and inviting. I thought it seemed even nicer than the photographs. They had oatmeal cookie bars and milk for us on arrival. I wish we could have stayed longer in Iceland and at this darling farm house!

Beautiful guesthouse, very welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on our last night in Iceland, coming from the Blue Lagoon and leaving for the airport in the morning. Everything about the stay was wonderful. Dagmar was very friendly and helpful and the property was absolutely beautiful. We walked to the nearby lighthouse, befriended the animals on the property, and enjoyed a sunset over the water.

Best Part Of Our Trip

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse was our favorite part of our trip. It was beautiful! Rarely does something live up to, or exceed, the pictures online, but this definitely did. Dagmar was an incredible host, as was her dog Krummi! Dagmar and her family have an amazing farm with horses and sheep, and a great view of the ocean and the mountains. We wish we could have spent weeks here! We can't wait to return.

Wonderful ending to a great trip

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful home with the best hostess you could ever hope to encounter. The property is magical. Beach views and a gorgeous lighthouse made it a perfect place for us to end our time in Iceland. Hope to return soon!!

P.S. We had a four and six year old and they were in heaven. Lots of lovely toys upstairs for them to play with and Dagmar (our hostess) played with bubbles for them and due to our food allergies even greeted us with bread they could eat. Lovely experience. Highly recommend.
