HOUSE BY THE OCEAN / BEACH

West Iceland House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 5 Sleeps

A new house by the ocean with sweeping views of the sea and to the mountains. The house is 30-35 minutes drive from Reykjavík, in a quiet and peaceful location only 50meters from the sea.

Three bedrooms;

two double beds: one double size/one king size

and one single bed.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, a great dining area / living room, with spectacular view.

A nice bathroom with tub and shower. All linen and towels included.

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, depends on the weather, you might get lucky and 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 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.

Very nice place

  • 5 of 5
The house is modern, well equipped and in excellent condition. It is well insulated, partly floor heated and has large glass fronts to the Hvalfjörður that offer a stunning view which keeps changing with the light and the weather. The owner is friendly and helpful, we had a nice contact. The place is suitably located for day trips to Reykjavík, the Golden Circle and the Snæfellsnes peninsula. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to come again.

Stunning accommodation in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 3 nights, and cannot fault anything about the house. It's a beautiful house, beautifully furnished and cared for, with everything you could possibly want or need in a holiday home.

Jona, the owner, was very helpful and friendly in advising about the house and the surrounding area.

The house is in a stunning location on the shores of the fjord, and is perfectly located for Reykjavik and for some of the main tourist spots.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, and hope to visit Iceland again in the future, partly on the back of such a wonderful stay.

Beautiful Vacation Choice

We stayed in this home over the Christmas holidays and loved every minute. The views are amazing, the house is very clean and roomy, and Jóna went above and beyond for us when our flight was delayed. We hope to visit again!

AMAZING HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This is the best house I've been to!!! It's so amazing that I don't wanna leave.

The house is well decorated and well equiped, especially the kitchen! There is everything you want. Perfect for traveler to cook, to save money. My friends and I love it so much.

The view around the house is so beautiful that you can just stay there and do nothing. It's quiet and peaceful. I love sitting in the couch to read, listening to CD and enjoying the sunrise. It's so relaxing!

The position is good, not far away from downtown. Just about 30 mins drive. It's convenient. But as not in downtown, it's more quiet and you may be able to see northern light right in the house!!!

And the most important thing is that, the house owner, Jóna, she's so nice and considerate! She gave us all information and even sent us email telling us we may see northern light in the house!

I wish I could go Iceland, this beautiful country soon. And I will definitely stay in Jóna's house again!

You Will Dream of Returning

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this home for a week in September. The property's description is entirely accurate and the owner went out of her way to be helpful and accommodating both before and during my stay. As other reviewers have noted, there aren't words to describe the beauty and serenity of this home. I chose the space for two reasons: 1) as a haven to accomplish creative work and 2) as a base for touring Iceland. The home could not have proven more perfect for both purposes. Highlights inside the house include a clean, thoughtful and every-thing-you-could-possibly-need design, sweeping views of the sea, and an utter tranquility created by the owner's own creative spirit. Highlights beyond the house include: a remote seaside setting, walkable (stone) beaches, quick accessibility to main roads, proximity to Reykjavik, and a chance to see the Northern Lights in your own backyard! From start to finish, this home and its wonderful owner proved welcoming in every way. If you are lucky, then one day you will spend some time in Iceland. If you are twice lucky, you will spend some of that time in this home. Already I am dreaming of how I can return.
