What we like about this property

We love the way this classic 1920’s 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 it’s 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 in 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 thirty 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

    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.
