The space

We live in a conveniently located and central (20-25 min walk from downtown) 3rd floor apartment right by the sea in the beautiful neighbourhood of Laugardalur. Its perfect for families or people that want to be close to the city centre but prefer to be somewhere a bit quieter.
Amazing views, large windows and comfortably furnished, the apartment comes with all amenities you could want. Everything you could need for cooking and relaxing while staying in, toys and activities for kids as well as central heating.
The balcony faces the sea so you can lounge out there in the sun and gaze at the beautiful coastline of Reykjavík and if the weather is clear enjoy views of the beautiful Snæfells glacier.

The neighborhood is a short 20-25 min walk downtown (depending on how fast you walk) and the bus stops right outside the front door, if you prefer public transport.
We recommend biking wich only takes 5 minutes and you can ride the whole way on a bike path next to the sea...lovely.
We are also close to the wonderful swimming pool Laugardalslaug which is one of the biggest and most popular pools in Iceland as well as Frú Lauga the local farmers market, which sells local goods as well as other organically sourced items. There is a bakery, sausage shop and ice cream shop all within the same distance. Also the restaurant/ bar/ cafe/hostel; Lækur is just down the street for your bruch and dinner needs. Finally we are lucky to be close to one of the nicest parks in Reykjavík...Laugardalurinn, where you can walk around...see the animals at the domestic animal´s zoo, have a drink and a snack in the botanical garden at cafe Flóra or just bring your own for a picknick.

I really enjoyed the balcony and the view from the balcony and living room. It was delightful watching the ships, the cyclists, the runners and the birds. Local shops were excellent.

This is a lovely apartment, but you should know it is someone’s home. You will be living with all of their personal belongings. Some people may prefer this, but my preference is for a more impersonal living space. Having said that, it is a very nice apartment, and we were ver…
