Photos and Description of this Capital Region holiday cottage

Small cozy cottage with large veranda and fantastic views

This cozy 51 square meters large cottage for 2-3 people located on the south coast of the scenic Hvalfjordur (Whale fjord) and thus only 45 minutes away from the capital Reykjavik. "Villa Artists look" is the direct neighbor's house our "Villa Fjord view".

This slightly smaller cottage is just a few meters from the shore of the fjord, surrounded by an enchanting backdrop of mountains and sea. A large sheltered veranda makes it possible to enjoy the magnificent view in nice weather outside.

The apartment is divided into a cozy and lovingly decorated open living and dining with integrated kitchen, two bedrooms and a small bathroom with shower. This home is perfect for two to three guests.

The kitchen is very well equipped with dishwasher, many appliances and utensils, so cooking is fun even on vacation. You have the option of washing machine and dryer to use free of charge together with the neighboring house 'Villa Fjord view ". These are located in a separate utility room at the "Villa Fjord view".

NEW from 2017! During the months of May to September you also have the option to use an on-site vehicle after consultation free of charge! Further details regarding the vehicle follow!

NEW now! Free HOTSPOT Access! Free wireless HOTSPOT!

Our tip:

Since the two houses just a few steps from each other away, even two families traveling together can spend your holiday here. Explore the surrounding area on group excursions or round off the evening barbecue in a large group the day.

Winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 5 nights on the Whale Fjord staying at this cosy, well-appointed cottage. The whole experience of booking with Dominik and Anke was lovely - they were really helpful and informative throughout. For example, we received a massive pile of maps, brochures and information from Dominik through the post several weeks before our trip - this was perfect to help us plan, and Dominik's recommendations were very helpful (we went on the "Into the Glacier" tour he recommended - this was fantastic and we would recommend to anyone).

The cottage itself is beautifully situated close to the water's edge with stunning panoramic views. It is warm, quiet, well-equipped and comfortable - in short, the perfect place to while away the winter nights. We stayed during a heavy snow storm and strong winds and we were still able to sleep well.

One thing to note if you are travelling in the winter - a 4x4 is essential as the driveway to the cottage is covered with deep snow!

The only criticism we could make is that the cottage is not very easy to find the first time you look for it, and the only directions available were in German. We would suggest providing the GPS co-ordinates of the cottage, and directions in English, to guests that request them.

Overall, we would recommend the cottage to anyone looking for somewhere quiet and beautiful to stay - away from the city, but still close enough to all the main attractions (you can easily do the Golden Circle from where the cottage is located, and even the Blue Lagoon is only an hour or so away).

Thank you Dominik and Anke!

Die Lage der Villa am Fjord ist traumhaft schön und wir haben unvergessliche, lange Midsommer-Tage in diesem wunderschönen Ferienhaus verbracht. Wir haben wunderschöne Photos zu jeder Tages- und Nachtzeit am Fjord gemacht, immer wieder anders aber wunderbar, es fiel uns schwer uns zu trennen. Ganz neu für uns gab es WLAN was gut funktierte, auch wenn man sich immer wieder neu anmelden muss. Der Service von Dominik ist super (Vielen Dank!!!) und das Haus auch super ausgestattet (verschiedenste Teesorten, Marmelade, Honig, Nutella etc.). Anfangs hatten wir Probleme mit der geringen Menge an heißem Wasser, die gerade für eine Person zum Duschen braucht, später hatten wir uns wohl dran gewöhnt oder es funktionierte besser. Das Bad hat ein etwas enge Dusche und kleine Macken, so machte es irgendwann plopp und die Verkleidung des Waschbecken war abgesprungen. Es war jedenfalls urgemütlich auch bei ungemütlich stürmischem Wetter.

Nach Hause gekommen

  • 5 of 5

Da ich letztes Jahr schon in der Villa Kuenstlerblick gewohnt habe war es für mich wie nach Hause kommen. Ich fühle mich sehr wohl in dem Haus , vor allem auch die Nähe zum Fjord die man abends auf der Terrasse genießen kann finde ich toll. Das Haus enthält alles was man braucht um sich wohl zu fühlen. Ich hoffe, ich kann noch viele weitere schöne Tage in der Villa Kuenstlerblick verbringen. Dominik, der Vermieter, ist sehr nett und unkompliziert. Die Wegbeschreibung ist super, so kann man sich nicht verfahren. Die Zufahrt ist halt isländisch ;)

This cozy little cottage is located about 45 minutes' drive from the capital Reykjavik on the south coast of the scenic Hvalfjordur (Whale fjord). From here you can take many excursions:

An example would be the reconnaissance trip of 30 km long Walfjords, which will then be your home address. Either you take a walk with sturdy shoes to the highest waterfall (Glymur) or visit the Hallgrímskirkja in Saurbær that you can recognize from "Villa Artists look" on the opposite bank. But alone the wonderful sight of the mountains and the sea, which, whether in winter or summer ever appear in a new light and color, a round trip are worth. You may visit the village then simply Borgarnes, Hraunfossar ("lava" waterfall) Barnafossar ("children" Waterfall) or Deildartunguhver (richest source of hot water).

Another day trip to Thingvellir National Park is also possible to learn something of the history of Iceland and the island geology, marvel at and following the fountain of known geyser called Strokkur and the gigantic Gullfoss- waterfall.

Even the South is to achieve still good from here. One possibility would be a day trip to the famous waterfalls Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss at the foot of the famous Eyjafjallajökull glacier which brought global air transport in 2010, with its ash cloud disrupted.

In any case you should visit Iceland's capital Reykjavík. This bustling city with its cozy restaurants, bars, cafes, quaint fish restaurants at the harbor, the many museums, art and attractions invites sure a often.

Your shopping is done best in the town, 30 minutes away Mosfellsbær. There are next to several supermarkets, a bakery, fishmonger, bank, post office, pharmacy, restaurants and cafes. The perfect end to the day offers also the swimming pool Lagafellslaug. With several Geothermalbecken, slides and saunas, the small and the great will certainly need their delight. But see for yourself!

Welcome to "Villa Artists look"
