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.

Very nice flat, close to downtown, it has a parking spot if you have a rental car. The owners are close by and very helpful with any questions.

Perfect...simply perfect hosts, location, and property!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip from the USA to Iceland was more than a vacation...it was a celebration of 45 years of marriage and retirement from 4 1/2 decades of career/work. Agust and Hulda were the perfect hosts, providing us with information and mapped travel suggestions during the remainder of our two-week trip. They welcomed us into their "world" as Icelanders and we will not forget their kindness. The property is a delight...plenty of room and tastefully decorated with their family heirlooms, a beautiful garden to relax outside, and pleasant surroundings in a quiet neighborhood that is accessible to downtown. If you want a true Icelandic experience, Agust and Hulda will ensure you have it!

Wonderfully quiet home in the heart of everything

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay with Agust and Hulda! Such wonderful hosts! We didn't get to actually meet Agust, but Hulda was exceptional, everything was exactly as promised and then some. So very welcoming and willing to help with anything we needed. A special thanks to Agust for letting us know about the scenic route from Keflavik airport to their home. So happy we got to see all the natural beauty Iceland has to offer. We would definitely stay with them again and would recommend them to all of our friends and relatives. Thanks again Agust and Hulda!!

Great Location, Great Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with Agust and Hulda at B4 and had a wonderful time!

The home is located in a very convenient area, we were easily able to walk to many locations, sights, food stores and the beach. The neighborhood is quiet and somewhat secluded. There is a wonderful garden on the property and the owners were always nearby and and very accommodating.

If you need a "home" base while in Reykjavik, I would highly recommend B4, it is convenient and the owners couldn't be more pleasant! Thank you for a wonderful time!

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.
