Excellent Airbnb! Often we over rate experiences when we travel, not for this stay! Wonderful location which was easy riding and navigate to from during our excursions each day...the house has everything you need, felt like a nice home away from home during the trip,,,plenty of room and fantastic amenities for an Iceland home in the country! Thank you Arnar.

Arnar has a fabulous summerhouse in a great location for visiting many wonderful sites in Iceland. We visited Gesyir and Gullfoss which were close by and also enjoyed an amazing evening at the Secret Lagoon which is less then 10 minutes drive from the house. The house itself was very homely, clean and tidy and had everything we needed as a group of 8. The hot tub was great after a day of exploring and the views are lovely. The kids enjoyed the pool table too and the sauna was an added bonus. We met Arnar and Sigga whilst we were there and they were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay again if we get the chance.

Wonderful home to stay at while we explored the southern region. Spacious, clean and convenient to many sites. Beautiful view of the mountains, fabulous sunsets and a very comfortable place in a quiet location.

Smarahlid is an awesome base for exploring the Golden Circle. Our family traveled down to Vik and explored the sights all along the way. I recommend the side trip out to Saga-aged Farm, Stong, Gjain and Haifoss falls. The house is wonderful, has everything you need. We enjoyed hikes up the hills behind and were treated to the northern lights while enjoying the hot tub with frozen hair. Fantastic trip!

Absolutely perfect! From this location we were able to daytrip all over the south coast of Iceland. The home is lovely! Very clean and organized. We were all wildly happy with our time there. I could not recommend this enough. For people wanting to get out of Reykjavík, this is really the best destination anywhere. Highly recommended for dozens of reasons! Easy check in, clear communication, and all the comforts of home. A perfect stay! Highly recommend!

This is a lovely place to stay. We got snowed in and had to call to find the shovels but we did ourselves out. Everyone loved the hot tub. It's a good location for visiting the sites.
