About this listing
We own a traditional, little Icelandic house near the ocean in 101 Reykjavik.
The location is perfect, the city center is a short 20min walk away. The ocean and a stunning ocean walk is at the end of our street, the bus stop a few metres away.
The space is the ground floor of our house, with a semi-shared entry.
This is one of Reykjavik's historical houses. The space for rent is on the groundfloor, it is a studio within our space. It is a rustic bedroom with a comfortable double bed and a dresser. The main area has exposed bricks,barn doors, a sofa bed, fridge, kettle, tea and coffee. You have your own, separate bathroom with a shower. Shared laundry.
It is good to note that this house was built almost 100 years ago (in Iceland that is historic!) so parts of the space are lower than today. The main bedroom fx only has the height of 2m (6'6) while the norm today is 2,3m.
So this might not be the best space for the super tall men out there! (I myself am 1.79 (5'11) and don't even notice it).
Own little apartment within our house. Own bathroom. Guests have their own fridge and toaster, coffee and tea making facilities.
Our house is on 3 floors, the top two are used by my family.
Interaction with guests
I would love to help you make your stay in Iceland as enjoyable as possible! just ask and I will see how I can help.
Other things to note
You will be within our house. We just moved to Iceland after 9 years in Sydney, Australia. We are a very outdoorsy family, we go hiking, camping and on ocean walks pretty much daily. When we are home we love to have friends over, early dinners and in summer outdoor fires in our big, sheltered garden. We also have the friendliest outdoor cat, Miss Ballerina and a tiny little cockalier named Charlie. Our animals don's tend to use or go into the ground floor.
Our place is perfect for couples , couple of friends or for small families. (we can provide a crib if needed) Children are very, very welcome and will love the big garden, the trampoline and the playground right next to us.
No smokers please, not in or around the house.
Our family/house rules have always been; Be kind to each other, always be truthful and never squash anybody's joy!
We expect our guest to join in..to show kindness and enjoy themselves!
