About Katrin

I am simply the hard working owner and mood creator of your stay in Little White Castle in Iceland ;)

Katrin purchased this villa in 1999

Why Katrin chose Iceland

We fell in love with this house the moment we saw it because we saw the potentials. In the beginning it was the ugly duckling but after years of renovation and redesigning we were rewarded by the community for the renovation of the house and garden. This was in the year 2007. Now we invite others to enjoy our creation because after all the best things in life should be shared.

What makes this villa unique

You will definitely love staying at the Little White Castle. Whether it be because of the fairy tale hidden garden with it's 3 patios, Waterfall and Geothermal heated Jacuzzi, relaxing in front of one of the fireplaces, taking a real wet steam-bath or simply because of the short distances to some of the most famous tourist attractions in Iceland. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served by professionals is available upon request. Our guests also benefit from discounts on restaurants. You can always rest assure that we will do our best to make your stay a memorable one in the 'Happy memories' category.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed in Keflavik for two nights and Katy was a wonderful host. We really enjoyed the Blue lagoon; there is nothing else like it! We are continuing our travels in Iceland, but our first stop has been a wonderful start.

The little White Castle is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are all full of wonderful things, from the beautiful glassware in the lounge to the disco ball in the bathroom. The garden was the perfect, snowy play area for the kids (and adults!). Katrin showed us where the local shops and restaurants were and lent us her sat nav. She couldn't have done more to help and was a truly lovely host. I would highly recommend a visit to the little White Castle to make your trip to Iceland truly magical. I'm sure we will be back!

A huge thank you to Katrin for all of your help and support while we stayed in your very unique Little White Castle! I took a girls only trip out of the country for my first time and Katrin could not have been more helpful. We were picked up by her service from the airport and brought back to Katrins home for a taste of Iceland. She had a wonderful spread of breads, cheeses and Icelandic yogurt waiting. She escorted me to the bank where she helped me through my transactions even though my cc companies originally declined them based on my location. I was panicking, she wasn't! Then took us to the local grocery store and showed us around so we could get our bearings on what we would need at the house. She helped me rent a car and allowed us to use her GPS because she knew I needed it far more than she did! The location of the property wasn't the most ideal for what we were looking for because everything was a pretty far drive so having a car was a must. However, being a few minutes away from the airport when we had to leave early in the morning and partied too long the night before worked out to be a major advantage. I found Katrin to be an amazing hostess and was our keeper. She looked out for us and made sure we were always on the right track to get the most out of our stay. Her quarters where attached to ours but she stayed to herself unless she was needed. I didn't even realize she lived at the same little house until day 2. I can't leave this message without compliment my favorite sanctuary which was the garden and fire place. We had a lot of good memories at this house! Thank you Katrin so much for your outstanding hospitality. Also, if you are renting a car in Iceland, make sure you get fully covered. I unfortunately had an incident the last day of our trip and it ended up costing me. (someone ran into my parked car) Katrin and her wonderful neighbor & husband, who worked for Hertz, helped me get a new vehicle and a police report together. I was very fortunate to have all of their assistance in that matter! She was a great stress diffuser for me and laughed at my anxieties :)

very welcoming host in a good location

  • 5 of 5

First it's hard to beat a location so close to the airport less than 10 minutes drive. Katrin was there to meet us and greet, and showed us around the house so we are familiar with everything. Something that she didn't have to do but did anyway, she took us to the grocery store so we can get our supplies and with recommandation on what we should try etc.. go for lamb and Skyr yogurt! It is true that food can be expensive in Iceland, so as gasoline... $20usd for a pound of bacon and $2 a liter for gas. this is a shock for any north american tourists!

the house is very well appointed, with a lot of personalize flair throughout. everything you need to cook. enjoy the hottub in the backyard while waiting to catch a glimpse of the northern lights! they also provide with a GPS with pre-programmed destinations to visit so if you are staying there, don't rent one from the car rental company! they also provide you with a prepaid basic cell phone to call in case of emergency.

we were 3 adults traveling and that was plenty of space for all. only minor details for us, but could be a bigger one for a bigger family, even if there's space for 6 or more people, there's only 1 bathroom with shower/ large bath tub, so if everyone needs a morning shower, you might need to work on a schedule!

Overall we would return to this location if we revisiting Iceland in the area,with a couple hours drive you have many of the top attraction to visit on your first trip. we had a busy schedule and will need to return to visit the other places we couldn't fit in the schedule!

tip for sightseeing: rent a car, don't do the bus tours. you can stop anywhere you want, small places out of reach on bus tours, leave early in the morning; we left at 7am, and we have seen Gullfoss and geyser by 11am, before the "rush" of bus tour, so we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves! Pack layers, you can see sun, cloud, fog, rain, snow in the same day..... typical!

Amazing Host!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 friends travelling Iceland, we spent our first two nights at the Little White Castle in Reykjanesbar. Katrin was the most accommodating host we have ever had while travelling! Upon our arrival she had picked up some fresh bread and prepared an Icelandic Breakfast! Furthermore, throughout our stay she assisted us with navigating Iceland, planning activities, and recommending places to eat!

We hope to come back and explore again soon!

My family and I...5 of us..stayed at the The Little White Castle for 4 days. What a wonderful place to stay. It has everything anyone could need to be extremely comfortable. Katy was just fantastic and extremely helpful. We rented a car from the airport...KEF..and it was very easy to find. The rooms are big and everything you would need in the kitchen was there for our use. The beds are big and comfy. There were TVs in all of the bedrooms but we were so tired when returning home we never got to see anything on them. Since this was a February stay we never got to use the hot tub. The main bathroom is huge with a jacuzzi type tub and a shower that is fantastic. The LWC is located off the main road that takes you Reykjavik and beyond. Reykjavik is only about 30-40 minutes away but worth the trip. Lots of nice restaurants for any kind of taste..Icelandic, French, Italian, English or American. I definitely recommend The Little White Castle and this comes from someone who also has a rental on VRBO so I know what to look for.

Owner's Response: Dear LMT and family, thank you for your wonderful review and we feel really privileged that you decided to stay at Little White Castle during your vacation in Iceland. Too bad you never tried the outside Jacuzzi, since it's just wonderful to sit in the warm and cozy geothermal water, surrounded by snow and enjoy the stars above. Hopefully you'll have the opportunity to visit and explore our beautiful country again and rest assure you can always count on our assistance. Sincerely, Katy

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The Little White Castle had everything we needed for a wonderful one week stay with our two year old daughter. The house is well appointed and super cute (even included a stroller). The hot tub in the beautiful garden was a huge plus. The owner was extremely giving of her time and helped plan our itinerary as I had little time to research a plan prior to our visit. With daily car trips and a one-day airplane trip to the north (Akureyri), we were able to see almost all the top attractions in Iceland without having to pack/unpack and sleep at a different hotel every night; very helpful with the young child.
