We live in the capitol region of Reykjavik, in a peaceful and very family friendly town called Gardabaer. And we find ourselves very lucky with the location of our apartment. To give example of that, with a car it takes only ca.15 minutes to go downtown Reykjavik, only 8 minutes to the Smáralind, the second largest shopping mall in Iceland, 5 minutes to Heidmörk, a municipal conservation area of Reykjavik since 1950, 5 minutes walk to the next open-air swimming pool, 20-25 minutes drive to the next (real) mountain roots, 5 minutes drive to the next golf course, etc. The public Transportation in Iceland is the bus and from our building the next stop is in 5 minutes walking distance. But basically almost every family owns a car or to here in Iceland. Bicycle riding though is becoming more and more trendy and even some use that means of transporting all year round. Our apartment is 110 m2 flat on the second floor in a 6 flat apartment building. We do enjoy some fantastic views looking west, looking over the ocean, the coast line and partially Reykjavik. On the clear days the famous glacier Snaefellsjökull performs in the distant horizon. All year round this view is giving us the great display of light Iceland is so famous for. During the light summer nights, when the sunset is so to speak postponed here in Iceland, that is our living room view. Our apartment is built on one and half floor (only 6 steps between floors), has 3 bedrooms and to living rooms of which one is master bedroom. The lower floor leads out to a balcony where we keep our grill. The upper floor is mainly open kitchen joint with a living room, and one of the apartment´s bedrooms. The apartment buliding was built 1984 and we bought our flat in 2015. We have been renovating it little by little since then, making it more and more in our style and preference. Regarding some details: The kitchen is equipped with all the modern stuff you can think of, we have gas stove and a large oven, blender, bean coffee maker etc. The apartment has internet, Wi-fi and the laptop we will leave at home for our guests.


Our home is close to everything. A mall, a public swimming pool and the beautiful nature paradise Heiðmörk, are all in 15 minute walking distance. Downtown Reykjavík is in 10 minute driving distance. We live in a lovely town and our neighborhood is very quiet, friendly and nice. There is a playground in 2 minute walking distance from our home. We live in a ground floor apartment which has 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a living room , a TV room and a kitchen.


Our home is very cozy and bright and has a great view overlooking the cost line and the capital Reykjavik. We are only 10 minutes away from our capital Reykjavik. Closeness to nature, golf, open air swimming pool, 2nd largest shopping mall of Iceland and many other things.
