Beautiful Home on the Inside in Quaint Town
First and foremost - we had a lovely stay. The house is warm and clean and has all you need. The small town is very picturesque, and the pool is an easy walk and fun for hours. You'll see/read that the house is hard to find, and it is, but it helps to know that the name "Grund- I" is over the door and Fagrohvill is on the side of the house facing the street. It has a driveway. Don't let the unkempt lawn fool you. Yes, it could use a good mowing, front and back. But inside it's great. If you have the whole house, as we did, make sure you get the codes for all three lock boxes outside. Each of the bedrooms has its own lock, and if you have the whole house you'll need all three keys. The living is lovely and large, as is the eat in kitchen. Well equipped for making and serving nice meals. There are no closets in the bedrooms, so you'll be living out of your suitcases, but that was not a big deal for all three of us. We did not feel cramped. Two small matters: The Wifi code was not readily apparent. Our son had to look for the original box it came in under the TV. Also, we could not figure out how to operate the TV and there were no instructions (and I'm fairly adept at this stuff...) The lovely pool you read about is open until 9:00 PM, which is great, especially since the sun does not go down until well after 10 PM. We stayed Friday afternoon til Sunday morning and I'd recommend this place without hesitation.

4/5 Good

Great House in Great location
This house is well appointed, clean and roomy. We had a hard time finding the house initially because the GPS lead us astray and the picture of the house is not the house. It is a different house. But Hofsos is a very small town and people knew which house we were talking about as there aren't that many guesthouses. The house has three separate bedrooms, each with two twin beds, and it looks like you can rent the rooms separately so there is a chance you will have to share the living space, kitchen and bathroom. But we rented the entire house (we are a family of 5) so it wasn't an issue for us. The owner initially only gave us codes for two rooms, but when I called him, he picked up right away and gave us the code for the third room. The owner also put toiletries on each of the beds (soap, lotion and shampoo), which is really rare in Iceland and we thought was a nice touch. Most homes and hotels only have soap and nothing else. The kitchen is decently stocked and unless you are making a very complicated meal, you should be fine cooking. There is only one small mirror for the entire house in the bathroom. We have 3 boys so it wasn't an issue for us, but I can see if you are sharing the house with others, it might be nice to have mirrors in the room so you can get ready in there as well. Hofsos is a very pretty town. If you are staying here, I highly recommend the pool. It is in an absolutely gorgeous location.
