Unfortunately due to vehicle trouble and a very useless rental car company which left us stranded in the middle of nowhere we didn't make it to Einar's house. Initially we received good communication but as soon as it appeared we might not make it and discussed cancelling our booking as a result there was no contact back and we still haven't heard anything. While we never would have expected a refund seeing it was no fault of the host that we didn't make it, the fact all contact ceased was disappointing. On this basis I would be unable to recommend this venue as travel can be unpredictable especially in Iceland with winding gravel roads and a harsh climate. Its important to me that hosts show some flexibility and compassion in these circumstances.

Great location a few minutes' walk from downtown. The kitchen was very well equipped and the rooms were basic, but had what we needed. It would have been nice if there was a lock on the door, especially since the hosts don't live in the house, but everyone seemed to be very respectful while we were there.

We had the whole place to ourselves. Very central to whale watching and town center (few blocks). Had a ton of choices of places to eat. Great view from house and very clean and spacious living area. Kitchen is amazing in size and amenities. Easy to access. Would stay again in a heartbeat

Overall great. Great location, very clean, clear communication. Our bed was not comfortable: earlier in the trip, we had to sleep in our SUV, and that sleep was more comfortable than the one at this Airbnb. The walls are very thin and there's no policy about noise; I could hear our neighbors through my ear plugs. Other than that, great.

Our room and the shared facilities were well equipped and clean. Quiet at night, comfortable bed. Short walk through a lovely neighborhood to get to the local shopping and restaurants. Great value, would recommend!
