I am an artist, mother of two sons and a grandmother. I live in the house in Hvalfjörður and I also have my studio there. I spend a lot of time in the capital area and I love the contrast between the city life and living in Hvalfjörður in all of it´s glory. What fascinates me about this type of accommodation is that people get opportunity to stay in an icelandic home and get different experience for the country and its residents. The house is not always available for renting but when you stay, you have the whole house to yourself.
Why Jóna chose Kjósarhreppur
The house is in a quiet, secluded and peaceful location only 50meters from the sea with ever changing stunning view. It's close to the capital area with quick accessibility to main roads. It's a superb location for 'The golden circle' and more day trips to the south and west of Iceland. In the right weather condition it's a perfect location to view the Northern Lights dansing above the house.

Beautiful location in Iceland.
Great location, wonderful amenities. Would consider returning. Will recommend for anyone travelling to Iceland.
Better than the photos
This was our first trip to Iceland This place is even more beautiful than the pictures suggest. The house is charming, clean and very welcoming. It’s clear that this is a loved and cherished space. Our host, Jona was very helpful by showing us around the house and marking all the nearby attractions on the map. It was so nice to have such a fully stocked kitchen so that you don’t have to run to the store to buy basics like salt, oil and such.
While the house is charming and cozy, the real star of the show is the surrounding scenery. Beautiful views of the lake, surrounding mountains and perfect spot to observe the local birds. You can walk through the grassy fields (carefully) and observe nesting birds. I wish we could have stayed longer.
My advice for light sleepers who travel here in the summer is to bring an eye mask and maybe play white noise while you sleep. It never gets fully dark and local birds make the most out of the abundant sunshine :)
We loved our stay here. The house and setting are spectacular! Jona is a great host! We miss it already.
There is a good reason EVERY review is 5 Stars
If you have some flexibility in your travel plans, I highly, highly suggest you book a trip around the availability of this property.
My whole life I have wanted to visit Iceland (not sure why when I was young), and this was the trip of a lifetime for me, and staying in this home was one of the main reasons why. All of the reviews are true. The house is perfect in almost every way. Jóna is such a great host. Believe all of it - the calmness, cool fresh air, clean water, spectacular views, sounds of nature, etc. really make for a fantastic vacation.
Choosing to do a vacation like this, you will definitely will not regret. You will have the perfect home base from which to see and do most everything Southwest and West Iceland has to offer, while still being able to get away and relax every evening and wake up to some spectacular views in the morning.
Beautiful in every respect
The hostess, house and view were all amazing. We loved the house and our stray
Stunning! Unique! Comfortable!
Jona is an amazing hostess. Her home is located in a fjord with breathtaking views. It is spacious and has all the necessary amenities. The bedding is lovely and the beds are comfortable. It is an experience unto itself because of the views from the floor to ceiling windows.
