Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to unwind at the end of our Iceland vacation. Anna and Birgir were extremely welcoming and accommodating. We are a family of four and were perfectly comfortable in this well equipped, tastefully appointed and spotlessly clean apartment. The views are amazing; don't miss sunset right outside the front door.

We stayed for two nights at the end of our nine day vacation however I could have easily stayed for several more. It's a great location for exploring all of southern Iceland from Snaeffelsnes to Jokulsarlon; all sights and attractions can be reached in a day-trip (some days longer than others, of course). Reykjavik is a quick drive.

Do not hesitate to book this apartment.

We have stayed at the Oceanfront Villa twice now

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 has visited Iceland twice, and both times, we have stayed at the Oceanfront Villa. It is ideally situated between the airport and the city. It is also a short drive to the Blue Lagoon. The beautifully appointed apartment is on the lower level of the house with its own private entrance. It is in a stunning, rural setting right on the ocean with a private beach. It is easy to forget that Reykjavik is only a half hour away. The expansive property is meticulously maintained and is available for guests to explore. Don’t forget to look for eggs in the chicken coop! Birgir and his family are wonderful hosts who are welcoming and accommodating. We highly recommend including the Oceanfront Villa in your visit to Iceland.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5
Without a doubt, if you find yourself lucky to explore the beauty of Iceland, be sure to make the Oceanfront Villa a MUST stop on your trip! My boyfriend and I spent a little over a week on this beautiful Icelandic farmhouse property with private beach. Although the pictures are wonderful, it's even more majestic in person! Birgir and his entire family were incredibly charming and very helpful throughout our stay - it was so much appreciated. During our trip we even were able to witness the Northern Lights nearly 5 times - all of which were perfectly visible in "our backyard" due to the privacy and seclusion of the property. One night we even got to enjoy from the hottub. I highly recommend the Oceanfront Villa for your stay. You will not be disappointed - enjoy!

A dream in Iceland

  • 5 of 5
Io e la mia famiglia siamo stati in questa casa per 4 giorni ed abbiamo rimpianto di non aver trascorso più tempo.L'appartamento è nuovo e ben attrezzato. La posizione è semplicemente fantastica, vicino ai punti di interesse più famosi dell'Islanda. Non lontano dalla capitale e non isolato. La parte esterna è sublime e la vista nei giorni di sole è meravigliosa. Otarie fronte casa completano il tutto. Estremamente raccomandato alle famiglie con bambini. DVD di cartoni e films in casa. La vasca idro nel giardino ed il Weber barbecue ti fanno sentire come in nessun posto in Islanda. La disponibilità dei proprietari è grandissima........veramente consigliata

Like being a guest of the family

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I stayed in this apartment in February 2012. Cozy bed/blankets, well appointed kitchen, nice bathroom (no tub but we didn't need one), and a warm hot tub. Compliment that with fantastic hosts who went above and beyond (making us a delicious cake, advising on road condition information, and finely mapping out directions), and what more could you want? Great place to stay if you want to save a bit of money, rent your own car (the hosts helped with this, too), cook some of your own food, and feel more like a local. Lovely country and a great place!

A Truly Special Place for A Special Birthday

  • 5 of 5
For my Husbands 50th Birthday we decided to explore Iceland and more importantly witness the spectacular of the Northern Lights. Something Gerry had always wanted to see and this looked like the perfect base to do both. We were not disappointed on either count!

The place looks great on the internet but is even better when you are enjoying it. Birgir & Anna have truly made this a home from home providing everything you could ever need with some lovely special touches that make it a cut above the rest (thanks again for the cake!).

We managed to see the lights on two occasions from the garden (using the shed as a shelter from the cold wind)....it was the perfect spot....with the lights of Reykjavik in the distance and the sea to the side. We even caught site of them as we were travelling back home through the city! Obviously this is all dependent on certain things: Is the Aurora Active? Is it a clear night? Birgir will give you some websites to check both of these. I have since found that you can also get an iphone app for that...just search for Aurora Forecast....it's free and shows you the map of Aurora coverage over Iceland!!

We also managed to do quite a bit of exploring from here to some fantastic waterfalls; Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss, Urridafoss - all spectacular. We are now tempted to come back and explore the rest of Iceland!

And of course the Blue Lagoon was just down the road...lovely!

So thank you Birgir & Anna for helping to make this a truly memorable Birthday.
