Steinhúsið - modern accommodation in a house from another era
Two doors splashed with bright red paint announce the recent restoration of a home built in 1911, reliving its former glory days in Holmavik, a large town in the eastern part of the West Fjords. Steinhusið is an outpost of comfort in what can be a desolate area, offering modern accommodation in the midst of a traditional fishing village. Its location near the harbour and across the street from Holmavik’s attractions, such as the Witchcraft and Sorcery Museum, Cafe Riis, and artist’s workshop, make Steinhusið an ideal place to rest before embarking further into the Westfjords.
The main house has five bedrooms on the second floor with two large living rooms and a separate fully equipped kitchen on the bottom. An adjoining apartment with a separate entrance features a large bedroom, kitchen, and small living room. Tongue and groove painted wood walls meld with modern furnishings to invoke the past without forsaking contemporary comforts.
