Overview

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, with all this space. Asking for a private chef for one ore some of the evenings is an option. Or you could ask for a meal already made, you just need to heat it when you come home.

Why Vilborg B Hjaltested chose Breidholt

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 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

Big living room, dining table sits 16, easy.

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

Marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 individuals traveling in our party and spent the last 3 days of our trip at this spacious house. The house is situated in a quite neighborhood app. 15 minute drive from downtown Reykjavik. Very simple drive to the city Centre.

The layout of the house is open and would be great for even larger size groups as there was more than enough room for us. The architect plan of homes is something we in our group look for to enjoy and we were simply impressed.

The owner Vilborg was very pleasant to meet and was very helpful with the culture of her home Country and was only minutes away if something would had been needed but we found the home to have everything we needed to meet our desires.

Beds were extremely comfortable, showers great, wifi very good, and my own personal favorite was the kitchen space to prepare meals and the large table to dine at.

I highly recommend this home for larger groups traveling in the area of Southwest Iceland to use a home base. I end my review with a Thank you to Vilborg for the interesting history of the Iceland Yule Lads as my wife has started her collection of items to share this fun story!

Owner's Response: So happy to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. And you are right, the architect plan of the house was made with attending guests in mind, so that we could invite guests to our home instead of renting a facility. The dining table and the stairs are my favourites! Thank you for your visit and know you're always welcome back. And if you would like some Yule Lads shipped over, just contact me :-) Kind regards, Vilborg

Great place for a big group

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place in Iceland for staying with a big group. There are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate a larger group of people. There is adequate parking for several cars, too, if people are renting a vehicle while in Iceland.

The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal, and there is a big table to seat everyone.

The owner, Vilborg, was easy to reach, and the check-in/check-out process was simple.

I recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Makes me happy inside to hear how comfortable you al were. When planning the lot, the parking was one of the things we wanted to have enough of. With 4 daughters and maybe future boyfriends, you need parking space. Thank you for bringing a smile on to my face. Kind regards, Vilborg

Great house and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

There were 11 of us who stayed at the house the 2nd week of July and it was wonderful. There is lots of space in the house and it's very clean and modern. It saved us a lot of money on meals since we put together dinners at the house most nights. The location was very convenient for getting into Reykjavik and for getting on the main highways to popular sites. It was great to meet Vilborg and she was very helpful and she took the time to really explain everything in the house and in the area. She also gave us great ideas about restaurants and sites to see. We enjoyed the walking paths through the neighborhood and made use of the local gym and swimming facility which was just 5 min away.

Great home for a group

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with a group of 10. Took full advantage of the well equipped kitchen, the hot tub and central location to activities around Reykjavik.

More than one could have possibly hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Truly incredible experience! From the property itself to Vilborg our host. Vilborg went out of her way to make our Trip perfect. We were celebrating a friends 60th birthday and had a large group of people travel to Iceland from the USA to celebrate. Vilborg not only made sure that the house was impeccable, but she arranged for a chef to prepare a private dinner for us for our friend Ed's birthday, brought Ed a special birthday gift and made us feel like part of her family. The information she provided to us prior to coming about activities and travel companies as well as local restaurants proved invaluable. Her hospitality was truly amazing. The property was fantastic. We were never at a loss for anything. The hot tub was relaxing after long travel days, the kitchen was well equipped, bathrooms were stocked with fresh towels to last the entire stay and all the amenities of home were supplied. I could not recommend this place enough and would not think of staying anyplace else when I return in the future. Truly a special place and Vilborg is truly one of a kind! Can't thank her enough!
