The place is really close to diamond beach and Jökulsárlón, however, there are many small defects such as outlet/ switch, and the there is no enough parking space, we are not able to use public kitchen as well.

Great guest house and very private. Our family of 5 had two rooms. They each have a private bathroom and entry. The owner live upstairs and are very discrete but also friendly ( husband needed air in car tires and owner was helpful) . the rooms are amazing, new and super clean. Very comfortable beds and amazing shower with great Icelandic products . Also tea, coffee and waters in rooms. A nice touch. The guesthouse is the perfect location for one night in the southeast to visit the diamond beach and the iceberg lagoon. ( 10 min away) its also a great stop for those doing the ring tour.

Great rooms. Slightly let down by the environment around the property. Looks untidy and a bit of a building site but the rooms were great. Beautiful bathroom and stunning views. The property could do with better signage. We wandered around looking if we had actually found the right place. There’s no sign to say you’ve arrived!!
