About our home

Our flat is on the 2nd floor of a four story building within 20 minute walking distance from Reykjavík city centre or 10 min by bike. The apartment is spacious and bright with four bedrooms. The first bedroom has a queen size bed a cot bed and a changing table, the second bedroom has a single bed and a great selection of toys (mostly LEGOs and Playmobil), the third bedroom has a cot and toys suitable for children from birth onwards (LEGO Duplos, Brio trainset, baby toys, books, stuffed animals, etc.) and the fourth bedroom has a twin bed (1.35 m).
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher and a coffee maker. It also holds a small table, seating 4-5 people. We have two high chairs. The kitchen opens into the dining room/living room. The dining room has a larger table which comfortably seats 6 people. In the living room is a large seating up to 8 people, a 42" flat screen TV with Netflix access and a Nintendo Wii. The balcony is accessed from the living room. The balcony is southwards facing with a view over a shared garden and the ocean. It holds a bbq and a small table and chairs. We have one bathroom with a shower and bathtub, washing machine and a dryer and additionally, there is a shared laundry room in the building's basement. The basement also has a playroom where kids can play "outdoor games" inside on rainy/windy/cold days which is very convenient in Iceland.

The city center can be reached by foot, the walk is approximately 20 minutes through the West side of Reykjavík which is one of the most popular residential areas in the cityr. A twenty minute walk in the opposite direction will take you to the beach and Grótta lighthouse; a very nice spot perfect for bird watching, golfing and even surfing!

Two excellent outdoor swimming pools are very close by as well as a grocery store and then of course the bars, cafes and restaurants of downtown Reykjavík. Several playgrounds can be reached by foot, two directly in front of the building and several others within easy walking distance (2-10 minutes)

We have bicycles to lend in many different sizes as well as a twin bike trailer that can be turned into a stroller. We also have a car, a seven seat Chrysler Town and Country with a DVD player to make long rides easier for the kids. The car is equipped with 3 car seats for children.
