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.

Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was absolutely clean and comfortable, enough space for our party (10 guests) kitchen is fully equipped and is plenty of towels, bedding even toiletries.

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.

It was a beautiful home that was very conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family to enjoy Iceland. There was plenty of room for everyone. It was conveniently located near the highway for ease of travel. Yet, it was still tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. The owner was also very helpful with tips on enjoying Iceland. Your money will be much better spent on a home like this than in an expensive hotel chain.

Comfortable home in a great location near downtown Reykjavik for New Years Eve

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 adults (3 couples and 1 single) enjoyed our 2 night stay at this lovely home. The entire place was very clean, the living and dining areas were spacious, and the beds were comfortable. We also had ample parking for our 2 rental cars. A taxi to downtown Reykjavik for the New Years Eve celebrations took about 10 minutes and cost $30-$40 per car. Fireworks were all around town and we even saw the Northern Lights near the Harpa Concert Hall. I would definitely recommend this house!

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

The place was much more spacious than the pictures show. We had four single women and were all very comfortable. We spent most days out on the town, but did cook in one breakfast and dinner. We could have used a couple more kitchen utensils - like a spatula. We did eventually figure out how to work the coffee maker! We had a car and once we figured out how to get into town it was a very easy time. We loved the round-abouts instead of intersections! We used the clothes washer, but wished there were a dryer, too. We loved having the black-out shades in the summer. I would recommend this place to anyone! It is definitely comfortable and spacious and Marco is great with recommendations.

Lovely house -- wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

This house is not in central Reykjavik, but if you have a car and GPS/satnav, you'll be able to make your way to the center easily enough. I think it's about 6km out from the old town.

The house was big enough for our group of 6 adults; it's got 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, all nicely decorated and beautifully clean.

Our only challenges were (a) finding parking for our huge 9-person van (we had to ask the woman downstairs to move her car so the van would fit in the available space outside the house) and (b) figuring out how to use the cappuccino maker (the instructions appeared to be missing one or more pages, so my friends struggled with the machine for a while).

We definitely recommend this house for families or groups, and we greatly appreciate Marco's responsiveness to all questions, and his helpful information about the area and about Iceland in general.
