Some of the reviews for the Black house ...

The black timber house is by far the best BnB we ever experienced. The place itself is magnificent. The overall architecture, the bath, the fully equipped kitchen, everything is spot on... Wait until you see the view of the Snaefellsnes peninsula and it's glacier, it's to die for! Jean-Philippe | September 2016 


I can't begin to describe how perfect our stay was at Kristinn and Rut's home. The house is so beautiful, inside and out. And the location is stunning. It's a great home base if you're exploring west Iceland. I highly recommend staying here! My husband and I preferred it over any luxury hotel stay in our past. From the incredible interior design to thoughtful amenities to the breathtaking views, I could go on and on. Perfect for couples or small families! Julia | September 2016


Rut and Kristinn have created the perfect space to throw open the doors, take off your shoes and leave everything else behind. Perfectly appointed in every way--even has a nespresso, which was very welcome after 2 weeks of instant coffee. It was wonderful to end our trip here with a beautiful, low tide walk on the beach and hike to the rim of Hafnarfjall. Only wish I had planned a longer stay here. Thank you for a great spot.

This trip was beyond our hopeful expectations. We came to Iceland for a second trip to elope and stayed in two of Kristinn's houses (the other was the barn house in Stokkseyri). The black timber house was a perfect place to spend some alone time together and it all felt like a wonderful dream. We picked wild blueberries and foraged for mushrooms on the property. Up from the house are some beautiful friendly horses as well! … Our stay there was very peaceful and we definitely hope to be back again! We immediately felt right at home and were so comfortable there. OH AND THE BATHTUB IS AMAZING!!! We have such high praises that I'm having trouble verbalizing it all! Kim | August 2016


Fantastic house, fantastic view, fantastic host. Everything was perfect. Hopefully I can come back! Manuela | June 2016


We loved this house so much, we wish we could have brought it home with us! A beautiful, well decorated home in a gorgeous location with views of both the mountains and the ocean! The pictures and the listing were spot on. Donna | June 2016


Driving up to this home, you know you have arrived at one of the most special places on the earth. Perched on the edge of the sea, with jet black volcanic cliffs framing the background, this breathtaking home makes you feel 'at home' the second you arrive. A showplace, the home's design is warm and exquisite, with a bathtub deep enough for a night swim. We enjoyed dinner on the back deck at 'sunset' - (fyi - the sun NEVER sets in Iceland in late May!) and decided that we could live here forever. Collier | May 2016


This is hands down my most favorite place I have stayed on any of my Airbnb trips anywhere! This home is amazing! You feel like you are living in a Restoration Hardware catalog! The home is immaculate, the bedding so cozy, the entire house so welcoming and homey. I only wish we could have stayed longer … Jen | 2016


Wow! The house was amazing - better than in the pictures and the location right by the water is incredible. We cooked at home every night and were lucky enough to see the Northern Lights! We will definitely be back for a longer stay in the future. Emily | 2016


We stayed at the Black Timber House for three nights during our recent trip to Iceland and the place was amazing! What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. The place is warm and surprisingly cosy, perfect for relaxing. James | 2016


Gorgeous home in a gorgeous location. Very comfortable beds, spa like bath. Kristinn was friendly and available by e-mail and cell. The home is private, beautifully decorated and quiet, but also a quick drive to Borgarnes for supermarkets etc. We saw the Northern Lights our first night there. Could not have been a more perfect home or setting. Emily | 2016


We had the time here. We were on honeymoon and were looking for somewhere that felt secluded but was close to some places to visit. The house was exactly that. Decorated exactly as pictured and very cozy we will definitely be back in the summer to see the change in the landscape. Danny | 2015


WOW... what a place. We have just returned from 5 days in the traditional black timber house. It was PERFECT! We have always wanted to visit Iceland so spent some time researching where to stay. When this place popped up it was a no brainer. The place was immaculate, stylish, comfortable, warm and has the most amazing views from every window. The location was amazing too as a base for exploring all of the west. We didn't want to leave. Matt | 2015


We absolutely loved this house. Stunning attention to detail, care and consideration for the tiniest things and details. Beautiful landscape, remote, off the grid and perfectly peaceful. We had the best time. And...we arrived in the depth of winter, to some of the heaviest snow Iceland has seen for years: Kristinn was incredibly attentive and helpful, even going as far as arranging a local snow plougher to come and plough the driveway for us. He and his wife have created a perfect sanctuary. Go. Immediately. You will not regret. Oh, and the aurora were magnificent. Paul | 2015
