|Minimum Stay||4 - 5 nights|
A house by the ocean with sweeping views of the sea and to the mountains. It's about 30-35 minutes drive from Reykjavík, in a quiet, secluded and peaceful location only 50meters from the sea. Yet so close to the capital area.
two double beds: one double size/one king size
and one single bed. Linen included.
Fully equipped kitchen, a great dining area / living room, with spectacular view.
A nice bathroom with tub and shower.
There is a high-speed Wi-Fi connection.
Outside the kitchen there is a cosy terrace where you can drink your morning coffee and enjoy the dawn.
Extremely wide birdlife; moorland birds, seabirds, ducks, geese, ravens, ptarmigan and occasionally you can see eagles and owls. In wintertime, in the right weather condition, you might see the northern lights dancing in the sky above the house.
In the surrounding area there is i.e. the waterfall Glymur (the highest waterfall of Iceland 196 m) Þingvellir National Park, horse rental, swimming pool and good opportunities for various hiking tours. There is quick accessibility to main roads and this is superb location for 'The golden circle' and more day trips to the south and west of Iceland.
I am an artist, mother of two sons and a grandmother. I live in the house in Hvalfjörður and I also have my studio there.
I spend a lot of time in the capital area and I love the contrast between the city life and living in Hvalfjörður in all of it´s glory.
What fascinates me about this type of accommodation is that people get opportunity to stay in an icelandic home and get different experience for the country and its residents. The house is not always available for renting but when you stay, you have the whole house to yourself.
The house is in a quiet, secluded and peaceful location only 50meters from the sea with ever changing stunning view. It's close to the capital area with quick accessibility to main roads. It's a superb location for 'The golden circle' and more day trips to the south and west of Iceland.
The property is lovely. It's in a perfect location, and it reasonably close to explore a lot of what Iceland has to offer. It's close enough to major areas that it's not a hardship driving anywhere but not too far away that you feel cut off.
Beautiful views and an amazing place to use as a base for your holiday.
Jóna is also incredibly helpful with reccomending places to go and see that aren't on the standard travel guides. Very enjoyable experience.
Let me begin by saying that Jóna is such a kind and thoughtful person. She really goes above and beyond as a host! My husband and I arrived on Easter Sunday when most of the stores in Iceland were closed for the holiday, and Jóna picked up groceries for us so we would have something to eat. We kept in contact during our stay and she was sure to alert us to treacherous weather and also when the Northern Lights might be visible. The property itself was fairly easy to find and had everything any traveler might need. It is stunning - tastefully decorated and very clean with the most gorgeous views. It was the perfect place to spend our wedding week. We had the most wonderful time! I have already recommended Jóna and her home to many friends who are anxious to book. We are hoping to return for a future anniversary. Thank you so much, Jóna!! We miss it already.
Jona did welcome us warmly and gave us tons of very valuable practical advice to make the most of our stay. The house is just amazing, it has all the comfort you want and an amazing view you can't get enough of. The bedrooms are very well equipped, very good beds. We slept like babies. The kitchen had every item you can think of and Jona kindly helped with the few things (oil and vinegar) we forgot to buy at the supermarket. We loved spending time in her beautiful house and discovering the surroundings. There are fantastic walks along the fjord and natural swimming pools just a few km from the house. We definitely recommend Jona's house - it was just perfect for us (family of 2 adults and 2 children).
All you can wish for. Wonderful host, absoletly gorgeous house with killer view. One of the best places we have ever been
The property is well kept, modern, secluded, and beautiful. It's a bit off the beaten path of Reykjavik but well worth it. We used it as a home base exploring northern and western Iceland. Jona was kind, considerate -- walked us through the house and also would text me on when to expect the Northern Lights. We had an amazing time and would go back in a heartbeat! Thanks so much for your hospitality and the great memories.
We stayed at Jona's fantastic property for 5 days and I wish it could have been longer. The house is beautifully appointed with everything you could need for a really comfortable stay. The location is magical, and the views have to be seen to be believed. We were so lucky and saw the awesome Aurora displays for 2 of the nights we were there. Jona is an amazing host, kind and so knowledgeable. We had one of our best holidays here.
