About our home

Lovely family house located in Kópavogur valley, close to everything Reykjavík and vicinity has to offer. The house is in a quiet family oriented neighbourhood but still close to entertainment. Smáralind, Iceland's largest shopping center is only 5 minutes walk from our house. Large grocery stores, restaurants and all kind of service within few minutes walking distance. Several playgrounds close by as well as a frisbee golf course, which is the newest hit in Iceland. Few of Iceland's lovely geothermal outdoors swimming pools within few minutes driving distance (or direct bus line). Rush trampoline park 5 minutes walking distance.

There are 3 bedrooms in the house, a tv room, joint living and dining room, a kitchen, bathroom with a tub and a shower and a large laundry room. We are in the middle of renovations. New kitchen was installed in 2021 and new flooring and doors will be finished in 2022. The bedrooms can comfortably sleep 5-6 adults (+ kids). Main bedroom has 1 king size bed, second room has a full bed and the third bedroom has a 140 cm x 200 cm bed. We also have a mattress, kids bed and a travel cot that can be added for more people. In the summer months the terrace has a bbq-grill, trampoline, table and chairs in a really nice backyard. Excellent WIFI, Netflix, PlayStation 4 and a VOD service with lots of international channels all included.

As we have two kids (11 and 5 year old) there are lots of toys in the house. If you are bringing a baby we have a high chair and a travel cot. We also have 2 adult bikes, 2 kids bike and a baby bike seat for you to use.
