About our home

This is a lovely family home in the small village of Hafnir in Reykjanes, Iceland. Built in 1930 the house has a lot of history and charm. We are in the process of restoring it to its former glory. The house is just 10 minutes from Keflavík international airport and 30 mins drive from Reykjavik.
We have amazing sea views and large garden, and a lovely midnight sunset in the summer overlooking Snæfellsjökull glazier in the distance.Its a 7mins drive to the nearest supermarket, bakery and shops.
A car is available with the property.
the house is on three floors. There is a bathroom, kitchen and living room on the ground floor. The 4 bedrooms are on the first floor that sleep at least 6 people and a big open loft music/play room is on the third floor.
Hafnir Village is a small village just outside of Reykjanesbær, from here you can take great walks by the sea, look at the horses in the fields as well as check out the oldest church in the region. The village has a playground and an old harbour as well.
Reykjanes UNESCO Global Geopark is nearby with hot springs,lava fields, lighthouses and black sandy beaches. The famous Blue lagoon is 20 mins away, and you can reach the centre of the capital of Reykjavík within a 40 min drive.
This is a great place to to set out from and enjoy the best of unspoiled Iceland with easy access to Reykjavík, the south coast and all amenities.
