ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR XMAS/NEW YEAR 2016/17
ALSO LOOKING FOR EASTER 2017 AND JULY or AUGUST 2017
Our house is located in a peaceful suburb of Reykjavik, in a great and after sought neighborhood called Kopavogur.
Our house is located on a quiet street with very little car traffic on one of the highest hill in the capital area with a stunning view over the entire Reykjavik and the surrounding mountains. From our backyard you can walk straight out to an open area with a beautiful nature.
Our house is a bright spacious modern home with all the amenities you‘ll need for a great visit to Iceland. The house is two stories with very high ceilings. Our home has a nice big open plan living room and dining room with a large south facing windows and a nice adjoining kitchen with all appliances needed for home cooking and a dishwasher. Four big bedrooms, whereof one master bedroom. Three bathrooms, all with a shower and the main bathroom has a big bath-tub. TV room with a flat screen with both local and some international stations and a Netflix subscription, a laundry-room with a washing machine and a dryer and a garage.
We have a big balcony where you can enjoy amazing sunset, northern lights or spectacular New Year’s Eve fireworks (Iceland spectacularly celebrates the last day of the year with traditional and stunning fireworks display, where most of the inhabitants participate firing up their own fireworks), all depending on the time of your stay.
Our house is heated with geothermal water from hot springs so it is always warm.
Free Wi-Fi, free hot water (you can take bath daily) and drink our water right out of the faucet, it is so pure.
We have a nice garden and a spacious and beautiful patio with sunbeds, and a BBQ grill where you can enjoy eating outside when the weather is nice.
We have an electrical car which can be available. It is ideal when travelling short distances since the driving range is only 120 km. You can charge the car at home (free at charge) or at charging stations located in Reykjavik. If you want to travel out of the city you would need another car.
Our house lets you visit all the best Iceland has to offer from one location!
We love how our neighborhood is surrounded by beautiful nature. There is just a few minutes’ walk to an unspoiled Icelandic nature with great walking paths, golf course or a fishing lake.
Close by there is all service needed; grocery stores, bakery, fish store, fast food restaurants, gas stations, cinema etc. In the neighborhood you also find a great indoor and outdoor swimming pool with water slide, hot tubs, sauna and indoors pool for kids.
With all that it is also relatively close to many other things. It is only 10-15 min drive to the city center, 7 min drive to the largest shopping mall and 30 min drive to the Blue Lagoon.
There are many popular tourist destinations within comfortable day-tour distance such as the Golden Circle (Gullfoss, Geysir and Þingvellir), the Blue Lagoon, Krýsuvík, Gjáin, Þjórsárdalur, Hraunfossar any many more, both well-known spots and well kept secrets.
In addition the bus stop to city center is 400 m walk away and busses run every 20 minutes.
We are a family of five. A couple with 3 children aged 10, 15 and 17. Please note that we have a dog, in case of allergies.
Enjoy your stay at our home where we will do everything we can to make your stay as great as possible. We can help you with all the great attractions Iceland has to offer, Northern lights (Aurora Borealis), hiking, horse riding, diving, Special tours, salmon fishing and other activities. Most of all we recommend you explore the extraordinary nature Iceland has to offer.
