We offer private accommodation inside the warmth and quiet of our home in Borgarnes. Our home is the perfect base camp for exploring Borgarnes and its environs or Snæfellsnes Peninsula; or, take a break from a hectic road trip and reconnect with nature with beautiful mountain views from the living room, spend time relaxing downstairs in our café, or do some soul-searching amid the tranquil and meditative environment upstairs, downstairs, or along the coast, which is just a few steps away.

The space

Relax and take a moment to enjoy yourself in this warm and inviting room featuring two twin beds, artwork on the walls and a table with chairs. Please note that the window has no view and is equipped with blackout blinds.
A serene setting with panoramic views conducive to repose. The view from the living room is stunning. The interior is comfortable and cozy. The walls are adorned with artwork, family photos and an eclectic, unique array of artefacts from around the world.
We have 3 types of rooms. The rooms are either furnished with a comfortable queen-size bed or 2 separate twin beds; the family room features a queen-size bed, a single bed, and a convertible sofa, sleeping a total of up to five people. All rooms come with bed linens and duvet as well as towels.
The family room is equipped with black-out blinds and curtains for our midnight sun and guests have access to a private, en-suite bathroom (toilet, sink, and shower).
Our beautiful and cosy café/bar, Kaffi Kyrrð (Café Tranquillity) is on the ground floor where there is also our flower and a gift shop, Blómasetrið (The flower Center).
We share our home with our well-mannered dog, so our rooms are not the best choice for people with dog allergies.

Interaction with guests

The owner lives in the house and is ready and more than happy to provide information. Guests have the choice to either be part of the family or have the privacy of their own room. Come meet us in the flower store / café on the ground floor when you arrive.
We are happy to give directions or recommendations. Let us know if there's something special you need; otherwise, we will give you space to enjoy the peace and quiet of our home and take in the lovely view.

Other things to note

You may arrive anytime after 15:00. Come meet us downstairs in the flower shop/café and we'll welcome you and show you around!

There are supermarkets located throughout Iceland; there are a few just outside the airport at Keflavik, many in and around Reykjavik and two in the town of Borgarnes. Please be advised that most supermarkets close at 7 or 8pm; longer hours may apply in the summer. Grocery stores do not sell alcohol; alcohol can only be purchased from "Vínbudin" stores and licensed bars, restaurants, and cafes.

The weather in Iceland is very unpredictable and extreme, and it is best to be prepared for anything, even in summer. Layers and waterproof jacket and shoes are recommended. Please take care when renting a car outside of the summer season to be sure it's a four wheel or an all-wheel drive.

I definitely recommend Svava's place! It was cozy and clean and had everything my husband and I could have needed. Check in was smooth and she was so hospitable as she helped us and showed us around. The rooms, bath, and kitchen were clean and the view was incredible! The beds were SO comfortable and we had easy access to the paths to go for a walk along the ocean side in the evening and the morning. I definitely recommend Svava's place! It's a cozy little spot tucked away in the gem of a town.

Had a great stay at Svava's place. The cafe downstairs may have been one of the coziest places I've ever been— comfy couches, pillows, and blankets everywhere!
