Overview

About the property

3 floors modern villa,4 bedrooms,2 bathrooms,sleeps 8,extra mattresses available

A modern spacious villa with the great view of the most beautiful valley in the center of Reykjavik (Fossvogurvalley), located in a quiet and family friendly neighborhood just few minutes from the City Center.

The main floor has an open living/dining room area with large table and 2 big sofas.and provides a great place for families and groups to relax and enjoy a good meal after a busy day of sightseeing. From the living room it is possible to access in the open space to a nice side open room for the TV. At the same floor there is a spacious kitchen with table, a large bedroom that can be used also as spacious office and a fully furnished bathroom.

The upper floor has 3 bedrooms, a central living room with spacious sofa, TV and DVD player and a fully furnished bathroom.

A washing machine can be accessed on the lower floor together with bikes, storage area and garage. The house has 2 parking places of own property next to the villa.

A nice garden on the back of the villa provides a great outdoor dining area in the summer or a romantic Christmas area in the winter. 11 tries are limiting the garden in all its perimeter.

Downtown Reykjavík is just a 10 minutes drive and from the villa it’s short to walk to the nature valley of Fossvogur, a perfect place for hiking, biking, bird-watching or for a picnic. All the most beautiful villas of Reykjavik are located in this valley.

The villa can serve as a great base for various day trips outside of Reykjavík, such as the popular Golden Circle , or to the Geysers area, the Iceberg-lagune, to the horse riding facilities and to the thermal lake of the Blue Lagune. Golf clubs are also very near. Football and Tennis are available in the valley, just few minutes away from the house.

We can provide any assistance and give good tips to enjoy a nice holiday in Iceland and find the most affordable way to visit the country. We are a married couple Italian and Icelandic and we share the local knowledge of the country and the 'Italian' approach to get good deals and great service.

We have also gained with the time a very good experience about restaurants, cafe's, bar and club's.

We can also organize local cooking and special catering service with the great Icelandic lamb and the fresh local fish cooked in the 'icelandic way'.

We speak fluent English, German, Italian, Icelandic and Spanish.

Lovely villa with 4 good sized bedrooms in a great location on the outskirts of Reykjavik ideally placed to nip into the city or out into the countryside.

Great house, great host, highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of friends at the end of September. While we did not have the best of luck with the weather this house made our stay exceptionally enjoyable. As a host Marco was very attentive to details and provided plenty of instruction on house amenities as well as local places and attractions. The kitchen is fully appointed. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean, neat and comfortable. It was my first visit to Iceland and I want to come back soon. When I do I will definitely try to book this home again.

Great place for a family to stay in Reykjavik. Marco is really helpful!

  • 5 of 5

The house is better than the pictures and descriptions! Kitchen is great for meal prep and cleanup and the coffee/cappuccino/espresso machine is a great bonus!

The location is ideal for exploration of South and Southwest Iceland. We would all love to go back and spend more time there.

Great home for family trip

  • 5 of 5

Owner, Marco, was very helpful and accommodating. The house was perfect for our family of 9, well equipped and in a convenient location. I only wish we had stayed 3 or 4 more days as there was so much to do and see. I would recommend this home for a family or large group.

Marco was very supportive during and after the booking process, he provided lots of useful information about the Villa, the area, and touristic and travel tips.

I would definitely recommend this place to stay in Reykjavik.
