This is a beautiful house in the eastern part of Reykjavik, 8 km from Reykjavik center. The view over Reykjavik is superb. The house is next to a valley - perfect for running or walking - and a salmon river flows through the valley to the sea. There is a great swimming pool only 2 minute walk from the house.

The space

We are Helgi Thor and Margret and we live in this house with our three sons. We don't need many paintings in our home, the view over Reykjavik is like a dynamic painting, changing with the weather, visibility and the time of day. We have really made an effort to create a nice friendly atmosphere and music plays a vital role in our home. We also like to constantly improve our garden, and Margret - being a gardener by profession - has done a great job there! Helgi Thor is an engineer and a university professor and the home is his second workplace and a perfect place for writing academic papers and reviewing student essays.
The house has five bedrooms with a total of six double beds. The first bedroom has a 150 sm bed, the second bedroom has a 130 sm bed, the third and fourth bedrooms have 120 sm beds and the fifth bedroom has two beds, 120 sm and 140 sm.

Guest access

You can more or less use the house as you would use your home, e.g. the kitchen, the washing machine and the bathrooms, not to mention the gas fired grill and the furniture on the veranda where we like to sit on sunny summer days. We have an old, yet cosy hot tub on our veranda and during summer you are welcome to use it. We have a B&O Beoplay A9 soundsystem that you can connect to through bluetooth. We also have a 55 inch TV, a DVD player and Netflix. If you are a pianist you are welcome to play our grand piano but we ask that the old Blüthner is handled with care. Same applies of course to all other parts of our space!

Interaction with guests

We will receive you when you arrive, to say hello and show you our home and hand over to you the key. When you leave we will be there to receive the key and say goodbye!
