Built in 1923, Jakob´s house is one of the oldest concrete house on the Southern shore of Iceland and has been completely renovated. Jakob lived in the house from 1923 until his death in 1978 along with his 50 cats. The house has now been turned into an exclusive studio where you get to enjoy an authentic Icelandic farmhouse. The house is part of the Efri-Úlfsstaðir farm and while staying at the farm you can enjoy unspoiled nature and the solitude of the area, only 10 min. away from route 1

The space
If you are looking for an authentic farmhouse in Iceland - then look no further. Total silence and clean nature as far as your eyes can see. From the farmhouse you see 4 active volcanos, Hekla, Eyjarfjallajökull, Tindfjallajökull and Westman Islands. Jakob´s house is your perfect base for exploring the Southern Shore of Iceland. Welcome

Hi I am Hörður, born and raised in Iceland. I have been around horses most of my life and practiced yoga for the last 20 years. I work full-time with horses on my two farms. One farm is located close to Reykjavík and the other is located on the South shore of Iceland. Both farms are working farms. When you come for a visit you will experience an authentic Icelandic farm and be treated as my personal guest. Me and my family live on the farm just outside of Reykjavík where we have yoga and horseback riding tours. On the South coast farm we have the Black Beach retreat where I offer riding tours on the black beach, meditation and Northern lights spotting. I offer only the best quality food available for my guests. I look forward spending wonderful days with you here in Iceland - see you soon my friend.
