About Agust & Hulda

We are two professionals in mid 50s - with two of the youngest ones still living at home. We work as managers in education and European cooperation which we have been involved with for many years. So we are quite used to and found of receiving people from many countries.

Agust & Hulda purchased this house in 2012

Why Agust & Hulda chose Miðborg

Hulda's parents built the property in the 1980s to their needs: large family room and a special house in the back end of the garden that would serve as artists workplace, a place to live when the kids were old enough to almost move out - and then to rent our to family and friends. Now you too can experience this family complex.

What makes this house unique

You will be experiencing a real Icelandic home - as we live in the main building. You will enjoy the full privacy of B4 when needed, but if you want you can join us in the garden (weather permitting) or the conservatory - where we like to sit down for a conversation and a glass of wine: we are happy to talk about the history of Iceland, global warming, travelling in our country or to compare notes on traveling in different countries as we have traveled quite a lot - at least within Europe.

Terrific Find Close to Everything.

  • 5 of 5

Just like the photos and very comfortable with plenty of space for the two of us. Lovely to have coffee and breakfast before heading out for whatever adventure awaited. Our hosts were helpful, welcoming and king. They have a fabulous Australian Sheepdog who helped us when we missed our pup back home. The main bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed. The second bedroom a bit more cramped with two singles. Kitchen has EVERYTHING. House is 1.5 miles from the center of town, an easy walk. Very near lovely walking trails. WIFI is fast and easy. We did a lot of hiking and it was stunning and magical.

Oasis is a perfect name

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property. The location is great - close enough to downtown to walk (for active adults) yet quiet, with park land very near. The house is well equipped and the outdoor space is lovely. The conservatory (and marvelous grapes!) were also much appreciated. Our hosts were very welcoming and made our stay even better.

Wonderful Owner and Property

  • 5 of 5

Agust is a wonderful host, very welcoming. He answered all my e-mailed questions very quickly and helped us when we arrived with recommendations for places to shop, eat, and things to see. The property was perfect for 4 adults; we had plenty of room. The property also had a dedicated parking spot. It as close enough to everything you'd want to see, but off the busy main road. We'd all highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Reykjavik!

Nice private house with extras!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hulda and August's house with our 21 month old toddler. They provided a crib and high chair which made our lives easier. The playhouse in back was a nice bonus for the baby to explore and play in. The solarium was beautiful; it was covered with grapes growing inside! Little things like having coffee and kitchen basics were helpful. Having a little house all to ourselves was so much better than staying in a hotel. I highly recommend this house!

Car: recommended

Set in a quiet residential area, close to the small green hill where “the Pearl” sits – providing nice walking paths and short distance to the only beach in Reykjavik. Green but very centrally located.

If you want to spend New Years Eve - there is possible not a better spot on the Planet to do so if you like fireworks; the hill side has the perfect view over the crazy Reykjavik sky at midnight and you can join the family party afterwards or join the may concerts taking place until the wee hours of new years morning.

If you are here for the Reykjavik Marathon in August - its a great location with plenty of practice trails + the owners will show you the route.

If you want to come for the Gay parade and festivals in early August we have all the information and contacts if you want to participate in the parade itself.
