Gunnarshólmi is a famlily friendly house which combines the privilege of the city and the peacefulness of the countryside, being only 15 km away from Reykjavík Centre.
It is a great place to catch the Northern lights, away from the city lights.
Gunnarshólmi is surrounded with beautiful mountains and there is a river right next to it where it is possible to catch a fish. We could assist you if you would like to buy a fishing licence for the area. The name of the river is Hólmsá. More information about the fishing area can be found here;
At Gunnarshólmi it is possible to stay in the country side and nurish the soul and body in a relaxed environment. Here you can find remains from how Icelandic agriculture was in the old days as here was a large agricultural estate established in 1928. Today there is a free range chicken farm in Gunnarshólmi. The first and only one in Iceland! We also have many beautiful horses at Gunnarshólmi.
If you are interested in hiking we can recommend some nice hiking trails in the area.
The villa is a 368 square meter flat with six bedrooms and one hobby room. Four of the rooms have queen size beds and and the master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bathroom. More beds can be arranged if asked for. We can easily change the hobby room into a bedroom if more bedrooms are needed. There are three bathrooms in the house. One is large and has two sinks and a steam bathtub. The other two both have showers and one is located inside the master bedroom and the other one is in the entry hall of the house.
The kitchen is large and fully equipt with a large dining table for up to 12 people. There are two more large dining tables in the spacious living room so up to 36 people could dine comfortably in the house. The living room and the TV area is around 80 square meters and is perfect for some events. The TV is in the area next to the living room.
There is a large garden outside of the house with furniture so the house provides excellent areas for socialising both indoors and outside.
Two of the bedrooms and the hobby room are off the entry were you enter the house and the other four are further inside the house on a long hallway. All the rooms are very spacious. On the hallway you can also find the loundry room which has a washing machine and a dryer.
Guests will have the whole house to them selves, except the garage where we store our things.
