About Agust & Hulda

We are two professionals in mid 50s - with two of the youngest ones still living at home. We work as managers in education and European cooperation which we have been involved with for many years. So we are quite used to and found of receiving people from many countries.

Agust & Hulda purchased this house in 2012

Why Agust & Hulda chose Reykjavik

Hulda's parents built the property in the 1980s to their needs: large family room and a special house in the back end of the garden that would serve as artists workplace, a place to live when the kids were old enough to almost move out - and then to rent our to family and friends. Now you too can experience this family complex.

What makes this house unique

You will be experiencing a real Icelandic home - as we live in the main building. You will enjoy the full privacy of B4 when needed, but if you want you can join us in the garden (weather permitting) or the conservatory - where we like to sit down for a conversation and a glass of wine: we are happy to talk about the history of Iceland, global warming, travelling in our country or to compare notes on traveling in different countries as we have traveled quite a lot - at least within Europe.

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, comfortable property. Felt very private and quiet. Good location in a quiet area but a relatively short walk into the centre of town. Everything is there that you may need. Thank you Agust and Hulda - we had a great stay.

Convenient, cozy oasis

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely small house situated in a quiet neighborhood close to the Reykjavik center and even closer to a bakery. The owners were very helpful and even agreed to check us in after midnight. Both bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom is on the main floor, so negotiating stairs is a necessity. We have no reservations about highly recommending this property.

living in a garden

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place. Reykjavik was in bloom when we arrived and this house is in a back garden behind the main house--quiet and peaceful. It was spacious enough for the 4 of us and had nice touches in the kitchen and living room. Also a modern bathroom with plenty of hot water, thanks to those hot springs. Agust met us when we arrived, even though we were delayed getting a car and a bit lost. He gave us recommendations on where we could walk to and also places to swim. It was great to be able to walk to the Perlan and we loved having an easy parking space of our own. We would choose this rental again when we return to Reykjavik.

Ferietur til Island

  • 5 of 5

Vi hadde fine og interessante dager på Island. Fantastiske naturopplevelser som vi kommer til å huske lenge. Vi som kommer fra Norge vet jo en del om Islands historie og føler oss som en del av den - det var godt å se landet og bli litt kjent med folk og natur.

Tusen takk for at vi fikk bo hos dere i B4, vi likte huset og omgivelsene meget godt. Og vil anbefale det for våre venner som tenker på å reise til Island.

Beste hilsen fra oss 3 . Gerd Knudsen

Wonderful place to stay in Reykjavik!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect place to stay on our stopover to Iceland. Agust is very accommodating and even has suggestions for tours. The house has a beautiful garden that was hard to leave! It sleeps 4 comfortably, although there was only 3 of us. I would definitely come back!

Car: recommended

Set in a quiet residential area, close to the small green hill where “the Pearl” sits – providing nice walking paths and short distance to the only beach in Reykjavik. Green but very centrally located.

If you want to spend New Years Eve - there is possible not a better spot on the Planet to do so if you like fireworks; the hill side has the perfect view over the crazy Reykjavik sky at midnight and you can join the family party afterwards or join the may concerts taking place until the wee hours of new years morning.

If you are here for the Reykjavik Marathon in August - its a great location with plenty of practice trails + the owners will show you the route.

If you want to come for the Gay parade and festivals in early August we have all the information and contacts if you want to participate in the parade itself.
