Ultra comfortable and completely renovated family vacation home from 1940.
The Cottage is located in the most sought after area of Reykjavik, next to Laugardalur Valley which is the primary recreational area for the city. We love Laugar spa, the public swimming pool just steps away, jogging trails and the family park that is literally across the street. It's also just a short drive (5 min), or walk (about 20 min) from downtown.
There are several good restaurants just steps away and lots of activities
This self catering home is perfect for a family or two couples. Fully stocked Chef's kitchen has everything you may possibly need. Our home is casual and comfortable and pretty old so the bedrooms are small. Downstairs is kitchen, dining room, living room, full bathroom, office and mudroom. Upstairs we have three bedrooms, King, Queen and two twins, full bathroom with tub and tv room. Laundry room in the basement has a washer and dryer. Our caretaker will help you upon request.
