Are you searching for the most luxurious and comfortable Airbnbs in Iceland? We have got you covered! These are real Airbnbs that we stayed in all around the entire Ring Road, including Iceland’s Westfjords region! We aren’t just giving you a list of places to stay that we haven’t personally tried and loved! We have stayed in each and every one of these gorgeous locations and are recommending them to you based on location, price, amenities, comfort, and communication!
In Iceland, simply finding a place to stay seems like a task, let alone an “entire home” Airbnb. This means you get the entire place to yourself! For all of these Airbnb options suggested here, you are able to check in and check out all on your own by using a key lock box. This is our favorite feature when staying at an Airbnb so you don’t have to disturb the owners of the home if you arrive late!
Most Comfortable And Luxurious Airbnbs In Iceland All Around The Ring Road
Best Airbnb For Exploring Southern Waterfalls: Hemlulundur
When we arrived at Hemlulundur, we had been up for almost 24 hours and driven straight from the airport to a waterfall for sunrise before finally arriving at this Airbnb in Iceland. Katrin, the owner, was wonderful throughout our entire booking process and made it easy to understand. There is a map of what the road was like once you turn off highway 1 and it was easy to follow!
Check-in to Hemlulundur was also easy with a lock-box for entry. When we opened the door we were amazed at what we saw! This cabin was so cute and cozy and was well-appointed with luxurious touches such as the ultra-soft beds. It was the perfect size for our group of 3, but could have easily accommodated four, not including children. If you are looking for something a bit smaller, Rakel also offers two studio cabins further down on the same property which you can see here!
Hemlulundur is located about 2 hours from Reykjavik area but only 10 minutes away from one of Iceland’s most popular waterfalls Selejendafoss as well as the entrance to the Icelandic Highlands! It within 40 minutes of most other southern Iceland attractions and makes the perfect “home base.” There is also a small town with a grocery store as well as a gas station just 10 minutes in the opposite direction. We had to get gas a few times during all of our exploring so this was very appreciated!
The cabin itself was stocked with many cooking supplies such as oil, spices, and more, which made making meals in this little slice of heaven quite easy! The space looks out over vast fields and you even have a view of a nearby glacier as well as Selejendafoss if you look into the distance. Finally, the outdoor hot tub which you can fill with geothermal water was the perfect thing to relax after a long day of exploring Iceland’s south coast!
Best Airbnb For Seeing The Glacier Lagoon And The East Coast: Lambhus Cabins
We are going to be honest with you, finding accommodation along south-east Iceland is very hard. It is also very expensive and you don’t get much for the price. If you are searching for a fantastic south-east Iceland Airbnb, Lambhus Cabins will be your saving grace! These cabins are located equally 30 minutes from Iceland’s insanely popular and magical Glacier Lagoon and 30 minutes from the town of Hofn and the mountainous area known as Stokksness.
Lambhus Cabins are also perfectly located for exploring Skaftafell National Park and you can see a massive glacier from the window of some cabins. Finding Lambhus Cabins from the Ring Road is very easy and there is a sign. If you arrive during opening hours, you can head to the front office to get your key, otherwise, the staff will leave your door unlocked with the key inside.
We loved that the price of Lambhus Cabins was very affordable for what they offered. We were going to have to pay $150+ to get two rooms [which woud have cost our group of 3 $300+ per night] when we found the cabins! They start at $189USD per night [depending on your time of year] and can sleep four adults. The best part is that Lambhus Cabins come with a kitchenette which allows you the luxury of staying in and cooking yourself after a long day. A small fridge and cooktop was something that no one on the east coast was offering during our trip, especially for that price!
The beds were comfortable and set up in an adult style bunk bed which we didn’t have a problem with. The whole cabin is surrounded in windows, giving you a view of the glacier when you are dining or sitting on the sofa. The cabin was a studio so everything was all in one room, but for the location, price, and views, you really can’t beat it and we recommend this space to any traveler heading to Iceland!
Best Airbnb For Exploring North Iceland: The Cabin In The Lava
If you are driving the whole Ring Road and are looking for a luxurious Airbnb in North Iceland The Cabin In The Lava is the perfect slice of heaven for you! The Cabin In The Lava is located just 10 minutes from the town of Husavik, which is a very popular spot for whale watching in Iceland. The town is very nice and a brand new geothermal spa that overlooks the sea just opened! The Cabin In The Lava is also well located within an hour of other popular North Iceland attractions such as Godafoss and Myvatan Nature Baths.
The check-in process was easy and communication was perfect the entire time. One thing worth mentioning is that The Cabin In The Lava does not come with sheets/linens so you can pick them up for free in either Reykjavik or North Iceland or supply your own, depending on your circumstances. We chose to pick up our own in North Iceland and pickup was made easy for us. The Cabin is equipped with many essentials for cooking and comes with a washing machine which was nice after exploring the Ring Road.
The Cabin In The Lava sleeps 6 people and is spacious enough for all of your belongings. The cabin is very secluded in a lava field so the view is of surrounding trees. In case you didn’t know, trees are very rare in Iceland so having them around the cabin was a real treat! Finally, if it is a nice day, you can sit out on the large deck and enjoy a morning coffee or a lunch while taking in the wonderful Icelandic nature.
Best Airbnb For Seeing The Westfjords And Waterfalls: Renewed Charming House
If you make it all the way to explore Iceland’s Westfjords, we highly recommend staying in Renewed Charming House in Thingyeri. The town of Thingnyeri is adorable and located just 30 minutes away from Dynjandi Waterfall, one of the most popular attractions in the Westfjords. Renewed Charming House is also located less than 30 minutes away from the biggest town in Westfjords and lots of grocery store and dining options. The Airbnb is across the street from the only gas station in town, which makes finding it very easy and getting gas during your exploration even easier!
The check-in process for Renewed Charming House was easy with a lock-box and communication was great. The house is split into two parts, upstairs, where you rent out the whole apartment, and downstairs, where you rent a room and share a kitchenette area. We rented the entire upstairs which was quite spacious and gorgeous, with incredible views of the fjord just outside the window! There is a bathtub with a hand shower upstairs, but if you want to shower in a regular shower or use the washer/dryer, you must climb down a secret staircase to the bottom floor. We loved this unique touch! While upstairs guests have access to the downstairs, downstairs guests do not have upstairs access.
The kitchen in Renewed Charming House was huge and there was everything from flower and sugar to a waffle maker for Airbnb guests to use! The wifi was extremely fast, the beds were comfortable, and the price was great for what we were offered. Our favorite part was the sweeping views of the adorable town and stunning Fjords right outside!
Best Airbnb Near The Blue Lagoon And Keflavik Airport: Vogar House
The official name of this house is “House w/4 bedrooms near the airport and Reykjavik” but for the sake of this post we will call it Vogar House. After a super long day of driving we arrived into the town of Vogar and checked-in to Vogar House. Take it from us, this house is ultimate Icelandic luxury! Everything is pristine and the furnishings are perfect. There are no radiators, all the heating is done through the flooring. If that isn’t luxury we don’t know what is!
Vogar House sleeps 8 people across 4 bedrooms and doesn’t feel crowded at all. The place is huge and even has a piano room and outdoor hot tub as well as a room for a washer and dryer. The wifi is fast and the kitchen is stocked with necessities for making a variety of meals. Checking-in was very easy with a lock-box by the door and communication was fast. We loved the decor of the home, the theme, and how spacious and airy it was with a wonderful view of nature out back.
The best part of the Vogar House is the location! It is located less than 10 minutes away from the Blue Lagoon and less than 10 minutes away from Keflavik Airport. The home is located in a small town of Vogar and there is a local gas station and some places to eat if you need some extras. The proximity to the Blue Lagoon and airport make Vogar House the perfect first or last stop on any Iceland itinerary. Finally, it takes about 40 minutes to get to Reykjavik from the Airbnb, which we easily did for an afternoon trip on our last day in Iceland. If you are looking for a purely luxurious place to stay after your dip in the Blue Lagoon or before your flight home, Vogar House is the place for you!
