About our home

We live in a quiet suburb, 70 m from a salmon river and 5 minutes walk from one of the best swimming pools of the city. Waterfall in a walking distance. Open air old-house museum close by. We made a small apartment in the basement of our house when our children grew up. There is a small kitchen and private bathroom downstairs. This house was bought when all 4 children were at home, so plenty of room. Very nice garden and garage. We have one bed for a toddler and can provide second bed for a small child. Child seat for the kitchen. Barbeque in the garden. Short distance to bus station, a grocery store, pharmacy and a few restaurants. Though close to the city center we are minutes from leaving the city to all major roads to west, north and south Iceland.

Where is it?


Our house is located at the edge of a nature reserve of Reykjavik city, Elliðaárdalur with salmon river and birdlife paradise just 70 m from our garden. No sound of the city traffic. Quiet and peaceful but at the same time only 10 min drive from the city center. Endless opportunities to take a walk or go swimming in the local swimming-pool, heated with geothermal water so open all year-round. We are close to almost all major routes that will take you to the countryside. Grocery stores, pharmacy, bus station and a restaurant close by.
