About our home

We have a comfortable and clean family home that is fabulously located in the center of Hafnarfjörður, a suburban town in the capital area. Only 30 minute drive from the airport and 10 minute drive to the downtown of Reykjavík by car. Only two minute walk to the bus stop if you are using public transportation. Not to mention the attraction in the rural parts, Thingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir and the Blue Lagoon.
You will be welcomed by our two lovely cats, Munda and Messi. They are outdoor cats who come and go as they please, but need feeding and watering :)
There are two bedrooms, which sleep two person each and in the living room there is a sofa bed that can also sleep two if needed. So all in all six people can fit comfortable.
The location is great, with short walking distance to the center of Hafnarfjörður which has cafes, bakeries, restaurants, beautiful promenade and designers shops. The town is known for elves and vikings plus three geothermal swimmingpools (one within 5 min walking distance). A perfect place to relax and unwind.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Hafnarfjörður is a lively small town just outside Reykjavík. Here you have everything you need, Swimming pools (a part of our daily routine here in Iceland), parks, promenade and a beautiful harbor. It is easy to find something to do in Hafnarfjörður whether it will be visiting the local museums, experiencing the music scene or trying out the local cafes and restaurants.
If you are thirsty for more action the bus takes you straight downtown Reykjavík for a night out!

Buzzy restaurants
The popular restaurants among natives in Hafnarfjörður are Von, Krydd and Tilveran
Cool bars
There are nice local pubs in Hafnarfjörður, but to experience the Icelandic nightlife we recommend going downtown Reykjavík
Cozy cafés
There are many nice cafes in downtown Hafnarfjörður. Our personal favorite is Pallet, but Súfistinn, Norðurbakkinn and Brikk are also very nice!
Bit of culture
The towns historical museum is around the corner and the local art museum is also around 5 min walking distance from our home. The old movie theater is now a trending music venue, hosting many of Iceland's most prominent artists.
Walks in the park
The beautiful elf park across the street is small but mysterious. Guided tours around Hafnarförður elf sites is available during the summer. Víðistaðatún is a bigger park nearby, with playgrounds, pond, tennis court and nice walking paths.
Day tripping
Hop on a bus and visit Gullfoss and Geysir, Thingvellir, Blue Lagoon, or go Whale Watching from the harbor in Reykjavík
