Romantic and family friendly home with sea view. It is within a walking distance from grocery store, geothermal pool, local coffee house and city center. A playground is behind the house. The house is located a few steps from the shore with a pleasant outdoor environment and a spectacular view over the Reykjanes peninsula.


The West side of Reykjavik is and has been one, if not the most popular neighborhoods of the capital. Read more about it here:


You are entering a space with tradition, the house was built in 1938 by the owner's grandfather and acquired in 2014 since when it has and is being renovated. The interior design is a mix of old and new, the idea is to hold on the unique antique but lighten it up with modern features. The living room is the most valuable space, spacious with three large windows displaying the sea to the South and also the mountains to the East. A dining table for up to eight people and a (double) sofa bed with TV are the main features. Recently the chandeliers and table chairs were replaced with more modern and lighter types (photos to be updated). Most agree about the relaxing sense of ease and calm this setting affects you with. The central hallway lightened by a chandelier gives access to the red carpet stairway which leads to the upper floor where you will find three bedrooms and a newly renovated bathroom. The renovation of the bathroom was a success, designed by one of the country's most recognized interior architects Berglind Berndsen. It includes a walk-in shower, a bathtub, a washing machine and dryer besides other basics. The bedrooms consist of one large one with a double bed giving access to a sea view balcony and two single bed bedrooms used by girls of ages 8 and 7 (photos to be updated). The kitchen is still in its original style with the customized cabinets of the time. A fridge, oven, microwave, dishwasher are among the basic features. One of the windows displays the back yard and the public playground next to it. This is convenient to observe the kids at play. During summer the very popular trampoline will be in the back yard. All in all a homely and special space we are proud and happy to share with respectful and kind people during our getaways :)
