All about Gudrun Maria.’s place

Gunnu Hús by Meðalfellsvatn (address Meðalfellsvegur 14, Kjós)


The lakeside cottage nestles at the foot of Medalfell mountain and the garden leads right down at the water´s edge. The views are spectacular, of the lake and its surrounding mountain scape; it is a place of pure tranquillity. It has 3 bedrooms and an open plan kitchen and sitting room.

The space
The position is amazing, right on the lake with the garden down to the lake shore. The cottage is cosy and homely and it is only a 30 min drive from Reykjavik and 40 minutes right to the city centre. It is little, what the Icelanders call a summer cottage, so although it can accommodate families and groups it is not a large family home.

Where you’ll be

Iceland

It is blissfully rural as well as being very close to Reykjavik and all the city (URL HIDDEN) lakeside is lush with trees and greenery and is beautifully wooded. There is a little cafe on the lake which sells general groceries, serves food, mainly burgers and has a licence so there is a bar. It is only open daily in the summer months, but does open at weekends through the winter. The lakeside has a little community of cottages so even though it is rural there is always someone around if you have an emergency - and we are at the end of the phone..

I am a half-Icelandic half-English opera singer. I live with my family here downtown. We love Iceland. I grew up in Njálsgata street in my grandparents' house which is very nearby, so I am a local, and a native speaker. Many of my cousins, aunts and uncles still live in the old town. I love my hometown and am thrilled at how Reykjavik has changed from the sleepy old fishing town of my childhood to the cosmopolitan and amazingly popular travel destination it is now. We are lucky to have a wonderful friend (also a singer) who helps us manage the Old Bicycle Shop. She is called Maria and it may be she who greets you when you arrive.
