About Jóhanna Ingadóttir owner
Jóhanna and Stefán are the owners of Guesthouse Kvöldstjarnan. We enjoy our new lifestyle, living in a small, peaceful fishing village, only 60 km away from Reykjavík. We love to travel and we also like to meet people from all over the world. We moved from Reykjavík where we have lived most of our life, apart from few years Jóhanna lived in Denmark and Stefán in England, Germany and Denmark.

Why Jóhanna Ingadóttir owner chose Stokkseyri
Stokkseyri is a quiet and beautiful ex-fishing village by the south coast of Iceland with only 535 inhabitants. The village, which is part of Árborg municipality, is a little more than 60 km away from Reykjavik (50 minutes’ drive) and ideally situated for day trips to all the major places of natural beauty in the Southern Region such as Þingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir, and Seljalandsfoss - a must see for everyone visiting Iceland. Stokkseyri is known for its diverse birdlife and magnificent and beautiful shore typically characterised by alternating rocks and rapids, surrounded by back waters with thick shell sand bottom creating the habitat of various shellfish, conchs and crustacean. Arts and culture thrive and workshops, studios, galleries and museums are found in many places, besides local handicrafts. For example, the Hunting Museum displays stuffed animals from all over the world, original and interesting stories of ghosts are being told at the Ghost Centre, and the Icelandic Wonders Museum, dedicated to Elves, Trolls and the Northern Lights, gives a glimpse of how elves and the hidden people lived. Þuríðarbúð - the winter fishing hut of Þuríður Einarsdóttir (b. 1777, d. 1863), one of Iceland’s greatest fishing captains, or foremen, and notably a woman - has been reconstructed and turned into a museum. It represents well the housing conditions of men who went to sea to fish in previous ages. East of Stokkseyri is Knarrarósviti, the first reinforced concrete lighthouse in Iceland (built between 1938 and 1939) and the tallest building in the Southern Region. Close to the lighthouse is an old Creamery by Baugsstaðir farm, a local museum exhibiting outdated dairying equipment. The much celebrated lobster restaurant Fjöruborðið (e. the Foreshore) is located in Stokkseyri, almost a stone’s throw away from the flat and a small store (selling bread, cheese, butter etc.) is also within walking distance. Various services are available in Selfoss town, 13 km away (10 m

Beautiful, clean, comfortable!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Everything was clean, well decorated, and the beds were just what we needed after an overnight flight. The kitchen was well stocked with kitchen tools so we cook dinner at the apartment. The hot tub was an added bonus to relax in the evening. Would definitely recommend to future travelers!
It was a pleasure to host Kristi and her family. They were easy to communicate with and left the apartment in perfect condition! I would be happy to host them again and highly recommend them to other hosts.
Very nice apartment, quaint location
Very spacious, well stocked, clean apartment. The deco was great, hostess with good directions, quick responses. Small, quaint town with short walk to the water. Would have loved more time there to enjoy the hot tub and nice deck but our travel itinerary was too busy! Would highly recommend.
It was a pleasure to host Sandy and her family. They were likable, easy to communicate with and left the apartment in perfect condition. I would be happy to host them again and highly recommend them to other hosts.
