Overview

West Iceland House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms,1 Bathroom, 5 Sleeps, Mountain and ocean views

A 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, secluded 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, in the right weather condition, you might 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 various 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.

Lovely, enjoyable location in phantastic landscape

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this cosy place to everybody; especially families wanting to enjoy nature and landscapes at its best. Assuming weather might not be all that stable at Easter time, we decided for this spacious, well-equipped, and beautifully located house and have been very happy with our choice. On arrival we were delighted that the place was in reality even better than on the already promising photos. Everything was very neat and clean and we enjoyed the warm atmosphere that Jona, the lady renting this place, had created in her house. She supported us with great advice and we have been very thankful that she found us some toys for our boy. During the stay we enjoyed the great panoramic view on fjord and mountains, cooking in the well equipped open kitchen with professional gas-cooker, having breakfast and dinner at the large wooden table in front of the fireplace ... overall the atmosphere is lovely with lots of 'together-space' but also 'relax-places' for one to be on his/her own to read or just watch outside wildlife. Staying here, you are truly in nature without being cut-off; the house is well accessible from main roads and driving distance to shops, pharmacies, gas stations, etc. still reasonable. While weather offered lots of sunshine and snow we had the perfect stay.

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a great stay at this beautiful property. Pre-arrival communication with Jona was easy and informative. Upon arrival Jona greeted us kindly and provided a thorough review of the property, surroundings and provided suggestions. The first night she advised when the aurora may occur and she was spot on! The first full day we made the easy to drive to the Golden Cirle. The second full day we relaxed at the beatific home and walked the beach collecting shells. The home makes for beautiful photographs, as does the surroundings and many birds. Driving around the fjord and even into Reykjavik is easy to do in a day. We have used Homeaway and VRBO numerous times and I'd put this place in the highly recommend column.

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

  • 5 of 5

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!
