About Vilborg B Hjaltested
I´m Icelandic, with a Dutch partner, living together apart, so I do a lot of travelling. Most of the time it´s back and forth to Amsterdam. I built my house and moved in to it in 2002. It was built to house 4 daughters and the ability to host my employees at home. So much nicer to invite people to your home, rather than renting a facility. Thats the reason why my kitchen is designed for a chef, with all this space. Asking for a private chef for one ore some of the evenings is an option. Or you could ask for a meal already made, you just need to heat it when you come home.
Why Vilborg B Hjaltested chose Kópavogur
My house is perfectly located for those who would like to explore nature and the capital city - Reykjavík. It only takes you 5-10 min to drive out of the light "pollution" to get a better look at the Northern Lights. One of the better swimming pools is in a walking distance. An Icelandic swimming pool is one of the must do´s in Iceland. Geothermal heated pools and Jacuzzi's, sauna, steam-bath, slides, massage pools and streams for very little money. Supermarket in a walking distance, a bakery a little bit further. You will not find a better place to spend time with your friends / family, with all these open spaces, big kitchen and dining / living area.

Vilborg was wonderful to work with!
Iceland Summer Stay
The host of this house was great! She provided a lot of useful information and suggestions and checked in with us during our stay to make sure everything was going well.
The house was very well kept and clean. The location is great, as there is a bus station that goes into downtown Reykjavik. Additionally, there was 10 of us at the house, and the house provided a lot of great spaces for all of us to hang out.
So happy you could use my information files Robert, hope the swimming pool proofed to be worth it! Welcome back anytime.
Great property, great host
This is a beautiful home in a great location. Vilborg was more than accommodating with check in/out and very helpful with recommendations. She sent us a video showing how to work the appliances, lights, locks etc. and also gave us a 40 page document with information about the house, restaurants, local amenities, grocery stores and what to do in Iceland. The house was clean, comfortable, and well equipped and easily accommodated our group of 12. She responded to our many questions we asked prior to our vacation and even brought us jumper cables when our rental car wouldn't start. You couldn't ask for a better host. We would definitely stay here again.
And you would be welcome back anytime. It brings a smile to my face when I hear how good time my guests have at my place. Thank you for your good care of my home :)
Kind regards, Vilborg
Wow - what a beautiful home, and helpful owner!
I have rented > 20 homes over the years, and Vilborg has to be the most friendly & helpful I have ever worked with. The home is exactly as described - absolutely stunning.
The beds are all extremely comfortable, and all bedrooms are a nice size. The kitchen is amazing to cook in, and the dining room has a massive table that worked wonderfully for our large family. The large common spaces, and great media system available meant we had wonderful evenings gathered together.
She prepared us so well for our travel with great information ahead of time - including much information about things to see/do and many helpful translation tips.
Thank you for your kind words, so happy my information came to good use.
It's actually easy to be a host with such nice guests as you and your family turned out to be. Welcome back anytime :)
This is a beautiful home, well cared for, super stylish and modern, and comfortably slept my entire party of 15! Vilborg was a wonderful hostess! She prepared us thoroughly for our stay, her slides are amazing, and she gave us some great recommendations, including for a personal chef! There was plenty of room for my entire group to lounge in the very spacious living area and listen to music and play games. No problem parking our 3 rental cars - a sedan, an SUV, and a large van fit fine. Not far from downtown Reykjavik, great location! To have this as our home base throughout the long weekend made our trip to Iceland all the better! Highly recommend!!
WOW - so happy to hear how much fun you had in all my space :)
It was fun to meet you all and welcome back!
Perfect for group/large family Super clean, packed with amenities, very quiet,
This property was all it promised to be and more. The owner is super thorough, professional and so courteous. She even send a video with room by room instructions so we knew how to operate the appliances, etc. The house was spotless and had adequate towels and amazing kitchen amenities. The large table was perfect for meals and meetings. Know that you will not be close to the city center, but busses are easy to take and there are great grocery stores near by. I’ve stayed in a lot of HomeAways/VRBOs, so I can say with confidence that this property is top quality in comparison to others. The only small issue is that we could never figure out the TV, but I’m sure that has been fixed by now as the owner is super responsive. Big appreciations to Vilborg for her hospitality!
Thank you Kate for your kind words. I really do my best to make my guests feel welcome and comfortable. And yes, the TV issue has been taken care of!
Thank you for your visit and welcome back anytime.
