About the Property

3 Bedrooms,1 Bathroom, 5 Sleeps, Mountain and ocean views

A house by the ocean with sweeping views of the sea and to the mountains. The house is about 30-35 minutes drive from Reykjavík, in a quiet, secluded and peaceful location only 50meters from the sea.
Three bedrooms;
two double beds: one double size/one king size
and one single bed. Linen included.
Fully equipped kitchen, a great dining area / living room, with spectacular view.
A nice bathroom with tub and shower.
There is a high-speed Wi-fi connection.

Outside the kitchen there is a cosy terrace where you can drink your morning coffee and enjoy the dawn.
Extremely wide birdlife; moorland birds, seabirds, ducks, geese, ravens, ptarmigan and occasionally you can see eagles and owls. In wintertime, in the right weather condition, you might see the northern lights dancing in the sky above the house.

In the surrounding area there is i.e. the waterfall Glymur (the highest waterfall of Iceland 196 m) Þingvellir National Park, horse rental, swimming pool and good opportunities for various hiking tours. There is quick accessibility to main roads and this is superb location for 'The golden circle' and more day trips to the south and west of Iceland.

Owner info

About the owner: I am an artist, mother of two sons and a grandmother. I live in the house in Hvalfjörður and I also have my studio there. I spend a lot of time in the capital area and I love the contrast between the city life and living in Hvalfjörður in all of it´s glory. What fascinates me about this type of accommodation is that people get opportunity to stay in an icelandic home and get different experience for the country and its residents. The house is not always available for renting but when you stay, you have the whole house to yourself.

Why the Owner Chose Capital Region, Iceland:
The house is in a quiet, secluded and peaceful location only 50meters from the sea with ever changing stunning view. Yet so close to the capital area with quick accessibility to main roads. It's a superb location for 'The golden circle' and more day trips to the south and west of Iceland.
