What we like about this property

We love the way this classic 1920s farmhouse stands out against the ocean and sky and the vast green expanse of the Icelandic countryside. It’s a dramatic and inspiring spot and a charmingly comfortable retreat where you can take in the northern lights and the midnight sun. 

Description

Located along the windswept Atlantic shore of Iceland on a large private property next to a lovely beach, this charming early 20th-century farmhouse sits alone within the vast and dramatic landscape of the Reykjanes peninsula. Located near the village of Vogar on the north coast with outstanding views of Reykjavik in the distance, you’re midway between the capital region and the famed Blue Lagoon.

A cozy house with lots of classic country character, the traditional farmhouse silhouette is entirely at home in its surroundings. The apartment occupies the semi-basement ground floor, with a private entrance and cozy, light filled spaces that have been updated with modern comforts and simple, understated decor and furnishings. The large, eat-in kitchen is perfect for self catering and the master bedroom sleeps two with additional space for up to two children in the living room. 

The location is one of a kind, whose stunning landscape has been used as an iconic backdrop for feature films and photographs. Settle into the jacuzzi and take it all in… 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

High speed wifi, multi system cable TV and DVD player and movie collection. Housekeeping. Car hire available. 

AROUND

Situated along the shore just 30 minutes outside of Reykjavik, you are fifteen minutes from the famous Blue Lagoon. The urban center of Reykjavik inhabits over a thousand year old Nordic culture and is the first settlement on the island but remains more firmly rooted in the 20th century. Venturing out beyond the capital is where you’ll find the most spectacular features of the island including the “Golden Circle” route, where Eurasia meets North America and features amazing natural beauty. The Þingvellir National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the lakes of Thingvallavatn (the largest lake in Iceland) and Pingvallavatn are within a short drive as are Hengill volcanic area, the river Öxará, Gullfoss waterfall, the hot springs area of Geysir, and the Kerid crater, all offering both winter and summer attractions.

LOCATION

Reykjavik, Iceland. Nearest Airport: Keflavik International Airport (20 mins)

BEST TIME TO VISIT:

June through August feature the midnight sun of nearly 24 hr. daylight while the spectacular northern lights appear from September through April.

    A HIGHLIGHT OF OUR HONEYMOON IN ICELAND

    My new husband and I spent the first few days of our honeymoon in this lovely apartment and couldn’t have been happier.We were warmly welcomed to a beautiful, comfotable, clean apartment and quickly felt at home. The space was ample, the decor very stylish, and in the kitchen and elsewhere we had everything we needed.The house itself is situated in an idyllic spot where you truly get a feel for what it means to live on the island.

    From the apartment we were well situated for day trips, and our hosts couldn’t have been more helpful and friendly with suggestions for how to best spend our time in Iceland.

    We are already planning our next trip back to Iceland, and will surely make this one of our stops. Thanks again for your outstanding hospitatlity- our honeymoon was an unforgettable one.

    YES, AS NICE AS IT LOOKS!

    We stayed here for only one night at the end of our trip, but I hope to come back. It is perfectly situated, 2/3 of the way to the airport, but also 15 minutes away from the Blue Lagoon. My family of 4 was very comfy in this apartment hard by the sea. Birgir’s hospitality was above and beyond – there was food in the ‘fridge, maps on the table and a proud Icelandic host who was happy to help with any detail… A few tips: 1) there are lots of things to do on the peninsula west of Reykjavik – I wish we had more time for hiking and exploring. 2) this apartment allows you to really “nail” the blue lagoon – you are so close that you can either go first think in the morning (before the crowds) or later in the day (at 5pm – it is open until 9), after the crowds leave. Worth noting…

    WE LOVED OUR TIME IN ICELAND

    This was our first stop, but one of our favorite places on a month long, four country tour, and we will definatley be going back to Iceland for a longer visit. The apartment was spotless and beautiful, had the most incredible beds of the entire trip, and was perfectly comfortable for two adults and our 10 and 7 year old. The location is stunning, you are surrpounded by beauty and peace and quiet. Our 2 kids loved running around on the lawns and to the beach, not to mention the hot tub, and the loaction could not have been better for visiting the Blue Lagoon and Reykjavik. BJ and family were warm and helpful with recomendations on sights and restaurants, we had an amazing lobster feast the first night we arrived. It was great to meet some real Icelanders and we cant wait to visit again, maybe summer of 2012?
    Not soon enough!

    NICELY PRESENTED, WELCOMING WITH GREAT HOSTS.

    A very hospitable,family atmosphere, within a beautifully laid out cottage apartment central to the sights surrounding the capital, but not too close. The owner was happy to freely share his love of his home country and ensure we had a great timeIf you are looking for a holiday in Iceland this is a most delightful place to stay.As beaches go, well this is Iceland, I am certain you do not intend to swim — it is better to trip to the Blue Lagoon just a short drive away.

    Very clean, excellent facilities, accessible from the capital and surrounds. Located on the cost with a putting course , abundant bird life and distant view of snow capped, glacial mountains, and in the other direction, lava plains, extinct volcanoes, (and a little further away active ones) steam vents, the Blue Lagoon, waterfalls and the such like. You will need a car of course and this is a great place to come home to.
    I would most definitely recommend this to a friend, indeed when you leave you feel as though you are leaving a friend, a very good one.

    A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO STAY IN AN IDEAL LOCATION

    I fell in love with the photos on the Internet, and reality was even better than I had hoped. All three main rooms have excellent furnishings and are perfectly maintained. The bath is beautifully designed, and the large entry and hallway further increase the spacious feel. Our hosts, who have spent considerable time in the U.S., were warm and welcoming and guided us to some beautiful out-of-the-way hiking spots. Great birdwatching–from skuas to meadow pipits. Our two days here–at the end of a two-week trip–were the highlight of our stay in Iceland.

    SUPERB HOUSE IN AN AMAZING LOCATION.

    You don’t exactly come suddenly upon this property, as it is visible at distance along this beautiful stretch of rugged coastline, but it still makes an impact as you come close. Standing as it does in solitude with its white walls and red roof against a backdrop of blue see it looks superb – a real holiday location.

    The views are tremendous with Reykjavik visible to the east, pointy Mount Keilir to the south and on a clear day (which was most days we were there) the snow capped Snoefelljokull to the north.

    It was always a delight to walk down to and along the beach watching the terns or seals. Underwater was equally facinating with numerous crabs and fish amonst a mixed habitat of sand and rock.

    The surrounding Reykjanes peninsula is a real troll hideaway. Just driving around the area past spectacular larva formations which make up the bulk of this area you realize how the legends arose – sometimes trolls are everywhere you look!

    The deservedly best known tourist spot in Iceland is just a few miles away – the blue lagoon. It doesn’t disappoint but it is only the beginning of whats on offer especially if you like scenery and wide open spaces.

    For culture, shopping and nightlife head to Reykjavik which is just 30 mins away along an excellent road. This is a capital like no other I have been to, small enough to walk around easily and so laid back you can even park your car right outside parliament!

    Obviously if you have the time there are lots of fantastic places to see further afield. We had a great trip to the iceberg lake (Jokulsarlón) south of Vatnajokull via the infamous Eyjafjallajokull and another around Thingvallavatn lake but even if you stay more locally a great holiday is assured.

    Finally I have to say the owners Birgir and Anna are delightful, friendly and helpful. They also speak excellent English so use their local knowledge. Enjoy.

    Truly a special, special place. Very private and being right on the ocean just feels amazing! We explored the small beach and took some amazing pictures while we were there. You can see across the bay to glorious mountains and a glacier and there is a picturesque lighthouse in your daily view. The home is immaculate, historic, and very comfortable…not to mention an amazing value. Every detail is perfect and you can tell the home is lovingly and meticulously cared for. Netflix is provided and many travel books and brochures to help you explore amazing Iceland! We went to the Bonus in the next town over and easily made our own breakfast and lunches. We stayed here our last two nights in Iceland and it was the perfect transition from a busy, active vacation. We didn’t venture far once we got there but it is super close the Blue Lagoon. Very comfortable for two adults and a 10 year-old. The hosts are warm and so nice and helpful! A truly wonderful place!

    This property is as breathtaking as it looks, and every detail of the apartment is perfectly appointed. Instead of staying in the city, we chose to make this our home base for a few days and drove into Reykjavik and out to the Blue Lagoon, which turned out to be very easy and convenient. It felt like being in another world. The family who lives in the house is welcoming and respectful. I can’t recommend this location enough.
