About the property

Sleeps 14 +

370 square meter luxurious Villa, 15 min. drive to down town Reykjavík. Perfect for a family away from home, or bigger groups. 2.5 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, dining table which easily sits 16 people, spacious living-room with a projector, big garden with a Hot Tub, private parking for 6 cars.

Tiled, heated floors in entry hall, kitchen, laundry room and master bedroom bathroom. Hardwood floors in all bedrooms and living room. The hole house is cleaned without toxins.

Close to Reykjavík.

My house is in the Capital area, even closer to Reykjavík center than some of it´s own suburbs.

If you look out of my kitchen window, there is only one row of houses between my house and Reykjavík.

There are no long distances in the Capital area, compared to bigger city´s.

It will take +/- 15 min to drive to downtown Reykjavík, depending on the time of day.

You are much quicker out of the city, if you come to enjoy nature you are on the ring road (highway1) within 10 min from my house.

If you come for nature, you are better located at my place. If you come for the night life you might be better of down town, but I doubt that you´ll find a better place to spend time together with your friends or family, hot tub, lots of open space and perfect kitchen and dining area.

If the Northern lights will show you the courtesy to dance around the sky, it only takes you 5-10 min drive from my place to get out of the light pollution, you might even enjoy from my garden.

I can be pretty flexible with the check in, as long as there is not a same day exchange, you can have an early check in. I offer those who would like to secure an early check 50% of the nightly rate. Or you could take the chance you´ll have it anyway.

About Vilborg B Hjaltested

I´m Icelandic, with a Dutch partner, living together apart, so I do a lot of travelling. Most of the time it´s back and forth to Amsterdam.

I built my house and moved in to it in 2002. It was built to house 4 daughters and the ability to host my employees at home. So much nicer to invite people to your home, rather than renting a facility. Thats the reason why my kitchen is designed for a chef.

Why Vilborg B Hjaltested chose Reykjavik

My house is perfectly located for those who would like to explore nature and the capital city - Reykjavík. It only takes you 5-10 min to drive out of the light "pollution" to get a better look at the Northern Lights.

One of the better swimming pools is in a walking distance. An Icelandic swimming pool is one of the must do´s in Iceland. Geothermal heated pools and Jacuzzi's, sauna, steam-bath, slides, massage pools and streams for a very little money.

Supermarket in a walking distance, a bakery a little bit further.

If you come for the night life in Reykjavík, you might be better located down town. But you will not find a better place to spend time with your friends / family, with all these open spaces, big kitchen and dining / living area.

What makes this villa unique

Private parking for 6 cars.

Big living room, dining table sits 16, easy.

Big fully equipped kitchen, big stove, 7 pits. Ceramic coated pot and pans.

Spacious bedrooms.

Fantastic stay in Iceland...what a place!

The villa we rented while we stayed was out of this world, spacious, modern, well equipped & best of all luxurious! We were all raving about the beds they are so comfy...some of the best nights sleep whilst away!! Location was great bus stop close to get to down town Reykjavik or taxi was easy and reasonable. The local swimming pool very close to the house is brilliant we had a lovely afternoon there in and out of the hot pools and hardly cost anything!

Vilborg has been pleasure to deal with, so helpful since our first enquiry into our possible trip to Iceland...it is hard to organise 12 women and Vilborg made my life a lot simpler with her knowledge of the area and suggestions to make things run smoothly!

Overall we all throughly enjoyed our trip and stay and the next time we visit Iceland we will be hoping Vilborg has availability for us!! Thank you!

Great Location, Great House, Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

I celebrated my 40th birthday with a group of friends and family that totaled 13! We had the time of our lives. The location of the house was fantastic. We were only a 10-15 minute drive from downtown Reykjavik, where we spent several nights dining out and drinking at local bars. In addition, we were far enough away from the city lights to get a glimpse of the northern lights while having a quiet glass of wine in the hot tub. The House had everything that we needed and was well appointed. Indeed, the gourmet kitchen was amazing and with a house full of foodies, it was put to good use. Although it was a bit tricky to manage such a large group with only two full baths, we managed with flying colors. Since my group was so large, the many parking spaces were fantastic, as was the layout of the villa. It allowed people to be able to hang out as a group at the large dining room table or to sit on the entryway sofa downstairs and read a book. It truly met everyone's needs. But, the true gem of this property is Vilborg. She was amazing. She was available for any questions we had both before the trip and during the trip. She was kind and courteous and very accommodating. I would highly recommend this house for anyone who wishes to travel to Iceland with a group. It was perfect!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Tiana, Yes, again my beautiful kitchen gets compliments, and the huge dining table. If it gets to busy showering, there is this fantastic swimming pool in a walking distance, 2 min by car, very fairly priced. After all going to an Icelandic swimming pool is one of the must to do, there you´ll find Jacuzzi´s with different temperatures, stream lane, water massage, slides, steam-bath etc. If I can help - I´m all for it :-) Welcome back anytime. Kind regards, Vilborg

Fantastic Property, Great location, Lovely Host

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion during the Christmas holiday for the first time in a very long time. My husband's family flew in from Scotland and we flew in from Boston. Vilborg decorated the house, put lights on the staircase and even bought our Christmas turkey for us. The hosue if superb - located in a perfect location with easy access to shops and major roads. Thank you, Vilborg, for making our holiday so memorable!

Outstanding, well furnished house.

The property was spectacular, doing justice to the photos online. Vilborg was an incredibly attentive host and gave us some excellent recommendations for activities during our stay as well as calling us on New Years Eve when the Northern Lights were out! We were a group of 10 friends and the house perfectly fit our needs with flexible room arrangements and plenty of space in communal areas. The neighbourhood is clean, safe and appears to be affluent and is well situated for access to Reykjavik, the airport and as a vantage point to explore south and east as we did.

Owner's Response: Thank you Joel, happy to help out :-) Yes there are not many who have seen the Northern Lights dance with the fireworks! And one of the best things with my location is how quick you get to the main roads out to the country side. Kind regards, Vilborg

Fantastic Experience

Verified Stay

Good morning,

I wanted to take a few moments to describe our wonderful family holiday to Iceland over the Christmas season. We had many interactions with Vilborg in the planning stages of the trip and all I can say she was wonderful to talk with, informative and welcoming. Everything she said was done and extremely prompt in response.

This was our first family holiday over Christmas for 12 years. My family arrived from the States and my parents and siblings arrived from Scotland. Vilborg's house is amazing! From the decor to the stove to the hot tub. Vilborg thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. It is a Christmas holiday we will remember and cherish for years to come. THANK YOU!!!! We will be back in the spring for sure.

PS. Thank you for the Turkey...

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Iceland and we wanted a base that all of us (7 Adults and 2 children) could stay at together. The house was just perfect, very large with a bedroom each, very comfy and all the mod cons. It was a home from home. The kitchen area was very well equipped and the large dinning table allowed us to eat in style every night. It was lovely and warm and very clean. Very modern and attractive and the owner was amazing at giving us all the info you could need on the local area for eating, shopping and sights to see. We used her recommendations lots. We hired two cars to tour round the area and the drive was big enough for both vehicles. It also has an amazing hot tub outside that we used a few times (once in the snow). Was just perfect and I would highly recommend.
