About our home

The property is designed in a Norwegian "sveitser"style from year 1900 and was built year 1949. It is one of the oldest houses in the neighborhood. The property got a community reward year 2013 for successful renovation and preservation of an old property. When entering the house you will find an old pine wooden floor from an old wooden factory at that time the house was built. The windows designed in Norwegian and Swedish style give the house a soft brightness during 24 hours daylight in the summer as well as cozy relaxing environment over candle lights during dark winters. Floor and ceiling art have the same design from the time 1800 when the sheriff of Iceland Skúli Magnússon lived in Viðey (island outside of Reykjavik). The house is in two floors with 5 rooms but we use one as an office so there are 4 rooms available to use, two of the rooms has double beds and one is with single bed and on with single children bed but we will add beds to some of the rooms if needed. The kitchen is well equipped and a dining room is attached to it. Then there is a living room where we also have the TV. In the back yard we have an outdoor Jacuzzi and a shower as well as furniture, tables and chairs, barbecue facilities etc. in a big garden.

Our house is situated close to one of our most popular beaches the Geothermal Beach and you have view to our famous Restaurant and Cafe the Pearl or Perlan. Just 200 m from the house you will find a spacious swimming pool with sauna and Jacuzzi´s.

You are less than 15 minutes by bicycle from Reykjavik city center or around 7 minutes by car/bus. Two minutes walk to the sea. Supermarket (24/7), bakery, fast-food(Subway, pizza, hamburger), bank, gas station, swimming pool/gym in a 500-700 m walking distance. Mall Kringlan or Smaralind in a 20 min. walking distance.

Why you should swap with us:
• Close to everything including down town Reykjavik and peaceful neighborhood at the same time.
• Osean in front of the house with nice hiking, running and biking paths.
• Jacuzzi in the backyard, outdoor shower, barbecue facilities and a big garden.
