About our home

Located on the western tip of the Reykjavik peninsula, about 5 minutes drive from downtown Reykjavik, our house has been in the same family since 1970, bought and renovated by the second generation in 2006. With modern interiors and a spacious garden to the south, the house has spectacular views over the fjord and mountain range. The garden is equipped with a trampoline, small soccer goal, a jacuzzi, Weber gas grill and outdoor dining facilities.

Reykjavik is brimming with culture throughout the year.
Walks in the park
From our house you can take a spectacular 5 or 7 km walk almost entirely by the sea, with avid birdlife and the great lighthouse at Grotta.
Spot of exercise
A 5 minutes walk from our house will take you to the fabulous swimming pool, adjoined by a World Class gym.
Day tripping
Mount Esja is clearly visible from our living room. It can be scaled in about 2 hours. The drive there takes about 30 min.
