100 sqm , new (2010) beautiful luxury penthouse apartment with spectacular views to the sea and the port of Hafnarfjordur to rent in the short term. The apartment is on the fifth floor and a parking space in the garage. Elevator from the garage directly to the apartment.

Two bedrooms are in the apartment and can accommodate 5 persons. In another room, you can take apart the beds and turn it into a twin beds. Doorway to a spacious balcony with panoramic view over the harbor and old town and on the rooftop is a 20 sqm private area with garden furniture and a gas grill , on a sunnyday the glacier Snæfellsjökull can be seen in all his power.

The kitchen is fully equipped with tableware for 8 persons, microwave, refrigerator w / freezer, dishwasher, Senseo coffee maker (coffee pads are included). The dining room have a seat for 8 people.

In the living room is a luxurious leather furniture, wall fireplace, 40 'Sony Bravia LCD with DVD player and multi-casts TV and a free internet.

It is only 15 minutes drive to center of Reykjavik.

Intresting places near Hafnarfjordur: Some 25 km from Hafnarfjördur (about 25 minute drive) is the famed Krýsuvík geothermal area with its amazing solfataras, boiling mud springs, blowing steam vent and astonishing palette of colour. Just a few minutes’ drive from there are the stunning Krýsuvíkurberg cliffs, where sea birds by the thousands nest and the rolling waves of the Atlantic crash against the rugged shore. Both are examples of amazing natural beauty.

The landscape at Krýsuvík was formed by volcanic activity and upheaval.

The Grænavatn, Gestsstaðavatn and Augun lakes are explosion craters created by volcanic eruptions at various times. Of those, Grænavatn lake is the largest, some 46 meters deep. Its water is green due to thermal algae and crystals which absorb the sun. Gestsstaðavatn lake draws its name from Gestsstaðir, a farm abandoned during the Middle Ages. On either side of the main road are small crater lakes, called Augun, or Eyes.

Hafnarfjordur: Looking for an enjoyable and unique place to visit? Look no further.

Take a break in Hafnarfjörður, the warm-hearted town in the lava,

just south of Iceland’s capital Reykjavík.

Hafnarfjörður’s name simply means ‘harbour fjord’ and refers to

the excellent natural harbour, which has Iceland’s longest history of

continuous port trade - since the 1300s.

Hafnarfjörður is Iceland’s third-largest town, with just over 26,000

residents. And yet that number is open to debate, since legend has it

that some of Iceland’s elves and hidden people live in Hafnarfjörður’s

lava cliffs and rocks, in peaceful coexistence with the town’s human

residents. In fact, it is possible to tour the elf lands, and those with

second sight may even be lucky enough to spot one or two!

Naturally the town also offers plenty of more conventional outdoor

activities, from golf and swimming to horse riding. Museums and

galleries turn the spotlight on history, music and visual arts.

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed here as a home base to explore Iceland. It is exactly as the pictures show: bright, clean, spacious. The beds are nice and firm (just the way we like them!) The large windows gave an unobstructed view of the harbour which was perfect to watch the sunset. There are two Kronan supermarkets, each about 5 mins drive away. The Hafnarfjordur tourist info centre as well as a bank is a short 2 minute drive away (you can walk there in 10 minutes). It is a quick 15 minute drive to downtown Reyjkavik. We were able to have a tour company pick us up at the nearby Hotel Viking (less than a 5 min drive away) for our tour. The location of Hafnarfjordur is perfect: staying outside of the busy city centre of Reyjkavik yet still having conveniences nearby. We ate dinner one night at Tilveran which I would recommend. It is a 10 minute walk away (near the bank and tourist centre). Johanna was quick to reply to any questions we had before and during our stay and we appreciated the cupboard of snacks she left for guests upon arrival. If we ever have the opportunity to return to Iceland, we will definitely stay here again!

The perfect spot to end our vacation

  • 5 of 5
After driving, hiking and sightseeing with our two teen and nearly-teen children for more than a week all over southern Iceland, we needed a comfortable place to relax before going home. This flat was perfect. We arrived in the evening. The owner met us there, answered all our questions and suggested a good casual restaurant for dinner, Gamla Husid, that was a two-minute walk away. We spent the next day at the Blue Lagoon spa--an easy 25 minute drive--and bought some steaks at the nearby supermarket to grill for dinner and eat on the roof deck, enjoying the view of the harbor. We'd stay here again if we returned to Iceland, which we hope to do someday.

Great views in a stunning apartment

  • 5 of 5
A great apartment with stunning views of the harbour. You are a close drive to Reykjavik. Unbelievable sunsets (if you can stay up that long in the summer!). It was perfectly clean and the apartment matched the descriptions perfectly. For a family of 5 it was perfect base for exploring south eastern Iceland.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
I can thoroughly recommend this place as fantastic place to stay. We rented Johanna's apartment for a long weekend and had a truly amazing time. The apartment is beautiful and fully equipped with anything you might need. The views overlooking the water are breathtaking and a great way to start your day. We were even luck enough to watch an amazing display of the Northern Lights from the balcony and the roof above!
Iceland is such a great place to visit and we all really enjoyed all the trips and exploring the country. The apartment was the perfect place as a base to take tours from, some picked us up from the apartment, the others we met at BSI bus station, which was easy to get to. We hired a car, there's parking at the apartment and a little shopping centre down the road with restaurants and supermarkets.
All in all a warm, comfortable apartment, less than a 20 minute drive from Reykjavik. We loved this place. PS. Also Johanna is lovely and really helpful!

Golf: In 1993 the Oddur Golf Club (GO) – an open golf club – was established and became forthwith a member of the Golf Association of Iceland (GSÍ). Its foundation was of two reasons, firstly to enable the members of GOF to participate on golf tournaments on national basis, and secondly to give all people interested in playing golf an access to this unique golf course.

Both clubs, GOF and GO, have enjoyed a gradual increase in membership in the past and currently the combined memberships of both clubs rank among the highest in the country.

The attendance at the Odd Fellow Golf Course (Urriðavöllur) is by good weather, particularly on week-ends, often quite brisk. Therefore, it is advisable for players to book their round of golf in the early morning hours or the day before.

Ski: The ski areas of Bláfjöll and Skálafell are both only 25 minutes away from the city. Bláfjöll is south west of the city and Skálafell east of the city. Both areas have great ski slopes for downhill skiing and snowboarding as well as tracks for cross-country skiing. Bláfjöll has 15 lifts. Skálafell has 4 lifts.
