Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Reykjavík

3 floors modern villa,4 bedrooms,2 bathrooms,sleeps 8,extra mattresses available

A modern spacious villa with the great view of the most beautiful valley in the center of Reykjavik (Fossvogurvalley), located in a quiet and family friendly neighborhood just few minutes from the City Center.

The main floor has an open living/dining room area with large table and 2 big sofas.and provides a great place for families and groups to relax and enjoy a good meal after a busy day of sightseeing. From the living room it is possible to access in the open space to a nice side open room for the TV. At the same floor there is a spacious kitchen with table, a large bedroom that can be used also as spacious office and a fully furnished bathroom.

The upper floor has 3 bedrooms, a central living room with spacious sofa, TV and DVD player and a fully furnished bathroom.

A washing machine can be accessed on the lower floor together with bikes, storage area and garage. The house has 2 parking places of own property next to the villa.

A nice garden on the back of the villa provides a great outdoor dining area in the summer or a romantic Christmas area in the winter. 11 tries are limiting the garden in all its perimeter.

Downtown Reykjavík is just a 10 minutes drive and from the villa it’s short to walk to the nature valley of Fossvogur, a perfect place for hiking, biking, bird-watching or for a picnic. All the most beautiful villas of Reykjavik are located in this valley.

The villa can serve as a great base for various day trips outside of Reykjavík, such as the popular Golden Circle , or to the Geysers area, the Iceberg-lagune, to the horse riding facilities and to the thermal lake of the Blue Lagune. Golf clubs are also very near. Football and Tennis are available in the valley, just few minutes away from the house.

We can provide any assistance and give good tips to enjoy a nice holiday in Iceland and find the most affordable way to visit the country. We are a married couple Italian and Icelandic and we share the local knowledge of the country and the 'Italian' approach to get good deals and great service.

We have also gained with the time a very good experience about restaurants, cafe's, bar and club's.

We can also organize local cooking and special catering service with the great Icelandic lamb and the fresh local fish cooked in the 'icelandic way'.

We speak fluent English, German, Italian, Icelandic and Spanish.

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

The place was much more spacious than the pictures show. We had four single women and were all very comfortable. We spent most days out on the town, but did cook in one breakfast and dinner. We could have used a couple more kitchen utensils - like a spatula. We did eventually figure out how to work the coffee maker! We had a car and once we figured out how to get into town it was a very easy time. We loved the round-abouts instead of intersections! We used the clothes washer, but wished there were a dryer, too. We loved having the black-out shades in the summer. I would recommend this place to anyone! It is definitely comfortable and spacious and Marco is great with recommendations.

Lovely house -- wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

This house is not in central Reykjavik, but if you have a car and GPS/satnav, you'll be able to make your way to the center easily enough. I think it's about 6km out from the old town.

The house was big enough for our group of 6 adults; it's got 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, all nicely decorated and beautifully clean.

Our only challenges were (a) finding parking for our huge 9-person van (we had to ask the woman downstairs to move her car so the van would fit in the available space outside the house) and (b) figuring out how to use the cappuccino maker (the instructions appeared to be missing one or more pages, so my friends struggled with the machine for a while).

We definitely recommend this house for families or groups, and we greatly appreciate Marco's responsiveness to all questions, and his helpful information about the area and about Iceland in general.

the best home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our first visit to Iceland. It is such a wonderland of vistas, lovely people and new experiences. What made it even better was our home away from home. The apartment is very comfortable, nicely appointed and every thing we needed was there. It is well located and it was easy to get to our destination. Grocery stores were convenient. Marco was quick to respond to any question and he made the booking very easy. We highly recommend this property

Amazing space and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Marco for you hospitality, we all had a great time! The place was great, pictures simply do not do the justice! We were really surprised how spacious the place was. Downstairs living room was very huge, plenty space for all activities. We had 8 adults and two kids and everyone had a blast. All bedrooms very comfortable and my daughter especially loved the “monkey” bed.

Location is great too – quite suburban neighborhood, only 5 minutes drive from down town. All highways only few minutes away. Few supermarkets within minutes.

Marco was great host – we got more information on what to do than could cover during our visit. Very helpful and responsive. Will definitely rent again once back to Iceland.

Great space and location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Marco for such a lovely experience to our first but hopefully not last journey to Iceland!! With 7 people we had more than enough space for privacy! After long days of travel and exploring it was so nice to lounge on the big couch upstairs and watch a movie! Thank you for making them available!

The location was great for quiet and so close to the action of downtown!!! The running path is literally at the house so it was easy to find and enjoy early morning runs!

The kitchen was well supplied with ammenities and the 2 livingroom spaces made it easy for some to work and others to play without being in each others way!

Thank you as well Marco for being so helpful and easy to communicate with from Canada, much comfort.

Thank you so much!

Beautiful property, good location, Marco is great

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Iceland. The property was very well presented and hugely spacious. Good bedrooms and several large living spaces, with everything we needed. Location was perfect - being just a few km outside of Reykjavik meant it was 5 mins drive to the city, but also perfectly located to get onto the highway and out to see the scenery without having to go through city traffic. Marco was very helpful and organised and I would thoroughly recommend him and his property. Thank you!
