“Amazing cozy rental perfect for a relaxed vacation”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My family rented together this with another family (friends) for a week for our first Iceland experience. We were 6 (inc. two 5yr old kids). Firstly, the email communication during the booking process was excellent with Katy, the host. Katy also picked us up at the airport and immediately showed us great comfort by allowing us to check-in early (and also check-out late) and giving us a quick tour of KEflavick. Katy and Thorsteinn, her husband have built a very cozy place full of character and luxury comfort, including a sauna, an interior and exterior hot tub/jacuzzi and a bathroom that seems like an apartment! They were very welcoming, providing us with insights to places to go and being very accommodating to all our requests. The wireless was excellent, the kitchen amazingly stocked (inc lots of spices etc). We had an amazing time enjoying the comforts of the place and wonderful Iceland. The hosts live behind the house but you never realize they are there but they are also available if needed. They also gave us a prepaid phone for local use and a GPS for the car. The sauna and jacuzzi spoilt us!! Beautiful garden as well. An outside fireplace/grill also makes it perfect to relax outside. Highly recommended - will definitely come back. another bonus is it is close to the airport and a good spot to see a number of key attractions (40 min to Reykjavik and 2 hrs to Geysir/Gulfoss). Thanks Katy and Thorsteinn for renting us your wonderful and cozy place.

“Amazing & Magical Experience!”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The Little White Castle has amazing charm and warmth! The house was cozy and the owner of the home welcomed us as family. All amenities were excellent! Very clean. The jacuzzi and sauna spoiled us! Great location just minutes from the airport. Perfect wifi connection at all times. We were a group of five and had plenty of room. My family and I had such an amazing experience that we are already planning a return stay!

“Best getaway EVER”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Me and my hubby spent two nights in The Little White Castle and we both agree that the stay met all our expectations and beyond. Katý (the hostess) made sure that we were as comfortable, relaxed and best of all private as possible. We enjoyed the amazing hand built jacuzzi and sitting by the fire place, not to mention the optional home delivery massage service. A quiet and relaxing stay whether we wanted to listen to our own heartbeats or play the piano in the living room :-)

“Warm, cosy clean and quirky”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

A lovely welcome into a beautiful house on a really cold and snowy evening. Everything you need is here and a thermal hot tub in the garden that was lovely sitting in it in the snow! The house is lovely and warm and a real log fire and a well equipped kitchen. The town is only a few minutes walk away for restaurants if you do not want to cook. Although directly on a street there was no traffic noise.

“Wedding in a White Castle”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in August 2014
1
person found this review helpful

 Got married in Iceland last year at the Little white castle! The experience was absolutely amazing! The team of Little white castle organized the entire proceedings flawlessly from helping us with all documents needed, providing us with the head Viking priest of Iceland, decorations, photographer and staff for catering as well as organizing an unforgettable honeymoon trip to magical places. The traditional wedlock ceremony was conducted in the gorgeous backyard of the Little white castle where guests were treated to a truly enchanting experience as they mingled in the fairy tale like setting among the candles, flowers and hors-devours artfully laid out throughout the magical setting! The catering staff were truly amazing as I was fully engaged with my guests without a concern of the howto's of the day, as everything flawlessly came to fruition. To top it off the team had a stage setup set up with a live band, led by one of the most respected singers of Iceland serenading us and guests alike.....needless to say, all involved kicked up their heels for a fabulous time. In The morning , after having a steam in the sauna and dip in the outdoor Jacuzzi, we were treated to a wonderful champagne breakfast! Thank you Katy and Thorsteinn from the bottom of our hearts for organizing the biggest day of our lives so beautifully and for creating memories to be cherished by all for a lifetime!
