About our home

Very bright and spacious wooden house on two floors with five bedrooms and two bathrooms.
On the ground floor there is the entrance and a small bathroom with shower. Then the kitchen with adjoining living room. The kitchen has a dishwasher, a microwave, a coffee machine, an oven, and new electric range cooking. There is also a laundry room with a washing machine and a drier. On the ground floor there is a large working room with two tables and a bedroom with a single bed and a lot of books.
On the second floor we have the master bedroom with a king size bed, and three other bedrooms, with single beds. There is a large bathroom with a tub and a shower. A large balcony with a view over the sea.
The living room downstairs opens out to a large garden facing south.
The house is in a very quiet street in a quiet suburb, very safe and the neighbours are friendly. Next to the house is a playground with f.ex. a basket ball area. It´s lovely to take walks in the area, with great views to the city of Reykjavík and mountains in the distance.
A variety of supermarkets, shops and restaurants are only 5 minutes away by car, and Reykjavík center only 15 minutes. You can walk to the outdoor, public swimming pool open until 21:00 on light, summer evenings, with warm hot pots to relax, Iceland´s largest water slide and the only wave pool in the country.
From our house you can take various day trips, to the volcanic Reykjanes peninsula, take the Golden circle with geysers and waterfalls, drive along the South-east coast to see glaciers and black beaches, along with various shorter hikes and trips. We are happy to supply you with any information we can, but we do not offer car exchange or use of cars.
