Vaktahouse

Reykjavik, Iceland
A Window into a Simpler Time

Offering a glimpse into the many facets of the local character of Reykjavik, this vacation home for rent in Iceland gives guests an opportunity to get to know a historic side of the city almost unchanged since the town's inception. We like its simple character and charm. And the zippy little Citroen that comes with your stay is a great touch!

Vaktahouse

Centrally located within a quiet neighborhood of downtown Reykjavik, this vacation home for rent in Iceland is part of the oldest and most picturesque neighborhoods in the city. Built in the 19th century, the house served as the former home of the city's watchman, and is thought to have originally been part of a turf farm long since gone. 

Brought back to life from an unremarkable structure to its former beauty, the owners only lightly redesigned the interiors using original materials and building techniques that reflect the cultural spirit of Iceland. 

The ground floor living room is a cozy space with a fully equipped kitchen and small bath while upstairs the loft floor houses two sleeping areas that can accommodate up to four guests. Surrounded by lovely seasonal gardens, the property has an outdoor grill and dining area for those long days of midnight sun.

Filled with original character, this townhouse is a window into a simpler time, where you can relax and experience the beauty and unique history of Reykjavík.
