About Ulli Jonsson

We are the Jonsson family and have lived in London for nearly 25 years. We work from London but have a business in Iceland as well and therefore come regularly to Reykjavik for work and meeting up with friends and family.

Why Ulli Jonsson chose Norðurmýri

This is my family's holiday property when we are in Iceland. It's a perfect hub to get about Reykjavik if you do not have a car. Yet, there is off street private parking and plenty of free parking on the street next to the house.

The house is in one of the first organised and architect designed areas in Reykjavik built in 1937-8. The building style is called "Funkis" which reflects a contemporary and practical style for houses of the era.

It's a very warm and welcoming home we like to share with our guests.

What makes this house unique

Central location with easy access to all necessities in Reykjavik.

Perfectly located immaculate home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 fantastic days travelling through scenic Iceland and used the flat as our base. It was perfectly located for touring southern and south west Iceland (including Reykjavik ).

The house is just as pictured and immaculetely clean.

Upon our departure, items were left behind and we were immidiately notified.

We hope to return again!

Thank you Ulli!

The somewhat famous Hallgrímskirjka (the largest church in Iceland and one of the tallest buildings in the city) can be seen out of the kitchen windown and is just over 5 min walk from the house. By the church is a statue of Lucky Leif. The Viking who discovered N America well before Columbus did!

The harbour is about 20 min walk where you can go whale watching. The Harpan (Reykjavik´s operahouse is located on the east harbour. Well worth a visit for the unique architecture.
