About our home

The house is located in the popular Reykjavik neighborhood of ´Vesturbær´ (107), a short walking distance from downtown Reykjavík and the lively harbor area. For those renting a car there is plenty of free parking and for those who prefer to use public transportation there are bus stops just 100 meters from the house. There is a great swimming pool, ´Vesturbæjarlaug´, just a 4 minute walk away and you´ll also find a grocery store, a cozy coffee shop and a bakery all within the same block. The popular scenic area of ´Ægisíða´ shoreline is two minutes away. Just a little farther, in downtown Reykjavík, you'll find plenty of options for shopping, restaurants, sightseeing and other cultural entertainment.
The house is a townhouse on three levels. It is very well suited for families with five bedrooms, one double-bed and four single-beds, as well as a pullout couch that fits two guests in a separate open room. The living room, dining area and kitchen are all located on the top level. The mid-level consists of one bedroom, a small bathroom, TV-room and an office. The remaining four bedrooms are on the lowest level along with a bathroom. There is a small garden which is linked to a larger open area.
We also have a vacation house in the countryside, about one hour drive to the north-west. We´d be happy to arrange a swap with some time spent at our Reykjavik residence and some time at our vacation house.

More about us

  1. We are a couple with four teenagers aged 13, 16, 18 and 19.

  2. Orn works as an investment professional.

  3. We are looking to take a 3 week+ vacation with all the kids, somewhere where we can mix fun, culture and relaxation. Preferred time is late May into June 2019. In the summertime we can be flexible with regards to the swap of our Reykjavík home as we can also stay at our vacation house (also available for swap).
