About the property

Spacious 2 floor, 4 bedroom house, sleeps 8

A warm and cozy furnished house located in the old part of the lovely town Borgarnes. A spacious house on 2 floors with 4 bedrooms and all facilities you need. Quiet and peaceful with an amazing view of the Faxaflói bay and the nearby mountains.

The house is spacious, 200 square meters in only 1 hour away from the capital, Reykjavík.

4 bedrooms. In two rooms there are double beds and two rooms have two single beds. All the beds are high quality beds from the respected bed/mattress company in Iceland Betra Bak. The rooms are plain but beautifully furnished and the whole house is warm and cozy.

The entrance is on the upper floor where the living room, 1 bedroom, 1 guest bathroom and the kitchen is. From the living room there is a covered balcony where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery. The kitchen is well equipped. All dishes, cookware and everything that you need in a kitchen is available.

A laundry room is from the kitchen where washer and dryer are available.

On the ground floor there are 3 bedrooms, living room and bathroom with shower and bath tub.

TV and free Internet access. Sufficient parking included house.

Borgarnes is a quiet and friendly town. There are good grocery stores and great bakery (which they turned into Papa Jone's in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), Farmers market, excellent restaurants, good and interesting museums and exhibitions. The swimming pool is exceptionally good, a popular destination for Icelanders all over the country.

Borgarnes is the perfect place to stay on for 2-3 days and go on day trips, for example, Snæfellsnes and Borgarfjörður. The town is close to the glaciers and caves. During the winter Borgarnes and it´s close vicinity is a prime location for catching the Northern Lights.

About Katrín Huld Bjarnadóttir

Hi! My name is Katrín and I live in Borgarnes, a town I call Happiness. I grew up on the other side of the country, the North East which is considered one of the most remote parts of the country. I love living here in Happiness, it´s both long enough and short enough from Reykjavík. I run a flower / gift shop and a café with my mother and her husband in the old part of the town. I´m a true nature lover and a dessert lady!

What makes this house unique

What I love most about this house is the amazing view from the balcony on the upper floor. The view overlooks Faxaflói bay and the surrounding mountains. It is magical both in the summer or during cold winter nights with clear sky, the stars, the moon and the Northern Lights dancing around.

How can I say enough good? The house is very spacious and like home. You will be located in the perfect spot to tour... Just a few hours to waterfalls and geysers one direction and a few hours from seals and volcano and lava tube and glacier the other. What a beautiful spot! Just so you know, the hospitality was great too. We went to ask about the washer when we couldn't get it working and our hostess let us know it was broken... But then did the laundry for us! She has a great shop to go to as well and she was extremely kind and welcoming to our children.
