Iceland has been around for millions of years, the first resident of Reykjavík moved here in 870 and our house on Kárastígur 12 was built in 1927. We renovated it and lived there happily from 2005. We have been so comfortable that our youngest child was even born inside the house. In 2010 we moved out but not on and turned it into a guesthouse. You could also call it a hostel or a Bed and breakfast or just a friend´s house. We run it but the guests pretty much take care of themselves. We are busy building a new home in the suburbs! You get your own key, the facilities are all included in the price, and all you have to do is make yourself at home.
