Family home in green and quiet neighbourhood. Two floor townhouse. Here you will have the quietness of the suburbs and still close to Reykjavik City center...
Where is it?
Our house is situated in the east part of Reykjavik. There is a 10-15 drive into the center of Reykjavik, which is not really the center of the city, but the older part of it. The biggest shopping mall in Iceland is 5 min. drive. There is another smaller shopping mall which can be reached by foot in 10-15 min. There are 2 swimming pools in the neighbourhood and one of them can be reached by foot in 15 min., the other one a 5-10 min. drive. Swimming pools in Iceland are more like a SPA, with an outdoor and an indoor swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzies and most often a gym. Being in the east side of Reykjavik means that if you have a car you are better situated to go to see sights close to the city. For example you can drive the Golden Circle, which is the most popular with tourists. Then you see a huge, beautiful water fall (Gullfoss), Geysir and other beautiful sights. Outside the flat you can see mount Esja in the north, which is really the mountain in Reykjavik. Of course we can give all kinds of practical information regarding a stay in Iceland.
