This place was perfect. If I could give more than 5 I would. Communication was awesome. We had such a long drive up and we would be arriving late and was very accommodating to our needs. Had water in the rooms for us was a nice touch after such a long journey.

Einar's home is really welcoming. The house is well decorated and modern. It was easy to find and comfortable to stay in while visiting this beautiful scenic village. Einar provided us with what we needed to have a good night's rest and memorable stay.

We stayed here during a road trip around the ring road for 1 night in August. We didn't get to spend too much time at Einar's place, arriving at 11:30pm and leaving by 10am the next morning, but our short stay was pleasant. We appreciated the flexibility in being able to arrive late, given our long driving days. Einar waited up for us and gave us plenty of tips on sights to see along our continued route. Our room was basic but clean and comfortable. The kitchen was large and fully equipped if you need to cook. The bathroom was also large and clean. The house is located in the east fjords in Eskifjjordur. It's a very small, residential town set in some dramatic scenery, which is worth the drive along the east coast (gorgeous and super scenic!), but quiet and not much to do in the town itself. That was actually a nice change after the throngs of summer tourists on the south coast. It's good for a stopover to rest a night. If you arrive late, bring food or eat beforehand as there are not many restaurant options in town. Overall we had a comfortable stay and Einar is a great host who is happy to provide travel tips or anything else you may be curious to know about Iceland.

Einar's place was very nice, the house is beautiful and spacious, with a magnificent view from the living room. Also, a very well equipped kitchen is available for the guests. The bathroom is quite crowded (it is shared with a couple of other rooms). Einar was very responsive and helpful, especially since we reserved on short notice. Overall great place to stay in the East Fjords of Iceland!

Me and my girlfriend, Gudrun, love meeting people from all over the world and hear their stories. New friends are the results of our Airbnb-efforts, so we plan to keep at it.

Our interests: Karate, motorcycles, climbing, travelling, enjoying nature, working out, playing guitars, eating good food and hanging out with friends and family. :)

Looking forward to your visit here in the part of Iceland that is as far from the big city as you can possibly come and in the immortal words of Bill Hicks: Remember - it's just a ride.
