Southern Peninsula Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, ideal for 2, sleeps; 2 adults and 1 child.

Beautiful and spacious, 1 bedroom apartment in this beautiful Oceanfront Villa. A perfect place to see the Aurora Borealis - Northern Lights (September through April) in a secluded countryside area without external lighting.

A cozy house with character. It is located on a large private property with outstanding ocean and mountain view, and with a private beach.

All inclusive. High Speed Internet. Hot tub / Jacuzzi. The house, and its beautiful surroundings have been used in film-making, and professional photography. The property has been awarded, by the municipality of Vogar, for cleanliness. Located on the Reykjanes peninsula on the South West side of the island. The house is extremely well situated in a very quiet area by the water. Close to all major attractions such as the famous Blue Lagoon, (15 minutes away). The capital Reykjavik is 30 minutes away (downtown). Whale watching is 20 min. away. The Airport is 20 minutes away.This is a fabulous bird watching area. A truly magnificent place.

Thank you.

Perfect and charming

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment was perfect for our stay. Tasteful decor, very clean, wonderful whirlpool outside for viewing the Northern Lights and ocean. Good food nearby. Very close to the airport and Blue Lagoon. Easy access to primary highway. Reykjavik is close. The owner is very pleasant and accommodating. Many, many thanks.

This was the perfect place to unwind at the end of our Iceland vacation. Anna and Birgir were extremely welcoming and accommodating. We are a family of four and were perfectly comfortable in this well equipped, tastefully appointed and spotlessly clean apartment. The views are amazing; don't miss sunset right outside the front door.

We stayed for two nights at the end of our nine day vacation however I could have easily stayed for several more. It's a great location for exploring all of southern Iceland from Snaeffelsnes to Jokulsarlon; all sights and attractions can be reached in a day-trip (some days longer than others, of course). Reykjavik is a quick drive.

Do not hesitate to book this apartment.

We have stayed at the Oceanfront Villa twice now

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 has visited Iceland twice, and both times, we have stayed at the Oceanfront Villa. It is ideally situated between the airport and the city. It is also a short drive to the Blue Lagoon. The beautifully appointed apartment is on the lower level of the house with its own private entrance. It is in a stunning, rural setting right on the ocean with a private beach. It is easy to forget that Reykjavik is only a half hour away. The expansive property is meticulously maintained and is available for guests to explore. Don’t forget to look for eggs in the chicken coop! Birgir and his family are wonderful hosts who are welcoming and accommodating. We highly recommend including the Oceanfront Villa in your visit to Iceland.

The Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt, if you find yourself lucky to explore the beauty of Iceland, be sure to make the Oceanfront Villa a MUST stop on your trip! My boyfriend and I spent a little over a week on this beautiful Icelandic farmhouse property with private beach. Although the pictures are wonderful, it's even more majestic in person! Birgir and his entire family were incredibly charming and very helpful throughout our stay - it was so much appreciated. During our trip we even were able to witness the Northern Lights nearly 5 times - all of which were perfectly visible in "our backyard" due to the privacy and seclusion of the property. One night we even got to enjoy from the hottub. I highly recommend the Oceanfront Villa for your stay. You will not be disappointed - enjoy!

A dream in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

Io e la mia famiglia siamo stati in questa casa per 4 giorni ed abbiamo rimpianto di non aver trascorso più tempo.L'appartamento è nuovo e ben attrezzato. La posizione è semplicemente fantastica, vicino ai punti di interesse più famosi dell'Islanda. Non lontano dalla capitale e non isolato. La parte esterna è sublime e la vista nei giorni di sole è meravigliosa. Otarie fronte casa completano il tutto. Estremamente raccomandato alle famiglie con bambini. DVD di cartoni e films in casa. La vasca idro nel giardino ed il Weber barbecue ti fanno sentire come in nessun posto in Islanda. La disponibilità dei proprietari è grandissima........veramente consigliata

Like being a guest of the family

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in this apartment in February 2012. Cozy bed/blankets, well appointed kitchen, nice bathroom (no tub but we didn't need one), and a warm hot tub. Compliment that with fantastic hosts who went above and beyond (making us a delicious cake, advising on road condition information, and finely mapping out directions), and what more could you want? Great place to stay if you want to save a bit of money, rent your own car (the hosts helped with this, too), cook some of your own food, and feel more like a local. Lovely country and a great place!
