Borgarnes house description

We are offering our modern 150 sqm. house, our second home, built in 2010. The house is secluded, located by the seaside with spectacular views and scenery on all sides. The surroundings are very quiet and peaceful.

The house has a bright, open living area with large windows overlooking ocean scenery to the mountains across the fjord.

- Three bedrooms (sleeps 5).
- Double bed.
- Double sofabed.
- Single bed.
- A mattress for a child.
- Walk-in closet.
- One bathroom with a shower.
- Large porch.
- Fully equipped kitchen.
- A washer.
- Flat screen.
- High-speed wifi.

Our home is located 50m from the beach and the birdlife is varied and unique. Eagles live in the area and are seen occasionally as they rest on a small island just off the shore. Seals are also frequent visitors. Wild berries in august.

During the winter the Northern Lights are seen very clearly in the right weather conditions.

We believe our house is a good choice to enjoy the icelandic nature and scenery e.g.
- The fjord itself, Hvalfjörður.
- Glymur, the highest waterfall in Iceland.
- Esjan, popular hiking area around Reykjavík.
- The golden circle; Þingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir.
- Snæfellsnes peninsula and the its national park.

All in all a peaceful and secluded place to stay all year around and an ideal workplace for artists and authors.

- 90 km (1 1/2 our drive) from the KEF airport.
- 43 km (40 min drive) to downtown Reykjavik.

For guests who want to stay in Reykjavik at the beginning or at the end of their trip we can recommend good hosts and their cozy apartment, located close to the center.

The house is 30 meters from the beach and birdlife is varied and unique. Eagles lives in the area and are seen occasionally as they rest on a small island just off the shore.

Seals are also frequent visitors and they love to watch and follow them who walks along the beach.

Our house is located in Hvalfjörður (43 km. from the center of Reykjavik. Glymur, the highest waterfall in Iceland, is in 30 km. distance and 1,5 hours walk from the parking lot through a beautiful wooded area to the waterfall itself. We strongly recommend this walk to the waterfall.

Meðalfellsvatn is a small charming lake (appr. 5 km.), surrounded by cottages and beautiful mountain range. There is a small shop and cafe.

Hotel Glymur, in Hvalfjörður, (appr. 30 min. drive) has a good resturant and a swimming pool and Thingvellir, the national park, is 50 km. away.
