We are offering our modern 150 sqm. house, our second home, which we designed and built in 2010. The house is secluded, located by the seaside and has spectacular views and scenery on all sides. The surroundings are very quiet and peaceful and create a private haven for its visitors.

Our home is located 50m from the beach and the birdlife is varied and unique. Eagles live in the area and are seen occasionally as they rest on a small island just off the shore. Seals are also frequent visitors. Wild berries in august. Northern lights, moonlight and stars in all their glory during the wintertime.
We believe our house is excellent to enjoy the icelandic nature and scenery e.g.
- The fjord itself, Hvalfjörður
- Glymur waterfall, the highest waterfall in Iceland
- Esjan, the most popular hiking area around the capital
- The golden circle; Þingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir
- Snæfellsnes peninsula and the its national park
All in all a peaceful and secluded place to stay all year around and an ideal workplace for artists and authors. We are looking forward to welcome you to our house, your home-away-from-home.
For guests who want to stay in Reykjavik at the beginning or at the end of their trip we can recommend good hosts and their cozy apartment, located close to the center.

Still pinching myself that I got to stay in such a wonderful home! Magnus and Kristin were amazing hosts, very communicative from the start and willing to answer any questions we had. We were able to see the Northern Lights all three nights we were there, one of the nights in the comfort of the master bedroom. We were able to drive less than 2 hours to all the best spots (Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon, Snæfellsnes Peninsula) and come back every evening to have lovely home cooked mealsin their state-of-the-art kitchen. Definitely one of the most memorable trips I've ever had!
Beautiful house. Amazing views. Wonderful country. When a bad wind storm came in, Kristín made sure that we knew about the hazards to ensure we didn't go driving in it. That was very much appreciated.
We arrived at the house just as it was getting dark. It's not the easiest place to find if you are used to typing in an address on (website hidden) maps, but, it felt like part of the adventure and reminded us all of the importance of good old fashioned maps and directions.
We were greeted by Magnus who showed us around the house. He didn't stick around long and left us to get on with our trip. The house was good for the 6 of us, although 2 stayed on a double mattress on the floor, so is better suited to 4 and maybe a child.
The house has everything you might need for a stay - great kitchen, lovely bathrooms, comfortable beds and underfloor heating. It's a great location to start exploring the island, we drove to Gullfoss on the one of our days, which was an exciting experience for all of us. It's also a good location for the Northern Lights, which we saw on our last night there.
When it came to pack up, we didn't want to leave. We will highly recommend this place and the hosts to our friends and family.
My family and I spent three happy winter days at Kristin's and Magnus's house. The house is just as gorgeous as what you've seen in pictures, but even better: it's not only a beautiful piece of architecture but a real home, warm and comfortable, lively and full of artworks. Kristin and Magnus have been super nice and easy to communicate with, although we were always behind or ahead of schedule and abnormally clumsy… (ah, the side effects of a ten-day blissful vacation in Island!)
The pictures do not do it justice. This house is incredible, the location is breathtaking, and Kristin was kind and made things easy for us. We saw the northern lights 3 times, once in its full glory.
Hands down the most beautiful place I have ever been.
Oh where to start? The house and surrouns are even more majestic than the photos. Daily rainbows, waterfalls, hot springs and water all around. Kristin and Magnus were so lovely, providing daily weather reports, which we needed as novice travellers to Iceland. Communication right from the start was prompt and clear. The house has everything you need to cook, relax and enjoy what would have to be one of the most beautiful views in the world. The house is clean, warm and welcoming, the only bad thing about the house was giving the keys back! Iceland in general is awe inspiring, this house is a great base for exploring western Iceland, a car is a must so is hiking to Glymur. Once again thank you Kristin ang Magnus for a perfect week in your amazing home we loved it.
My husband and I had a blast in Kristin's house.
The house is in hvalfjörður, which is one of the must-visit area in Iceland, according to our guide, for its scenic fjord.
And Kristin's house is right there blending into the unparalleled nature. The house is so secluded wifi network doesn't even have a password.
And of course the house in and of itself a beauty even to the tiniest details. Designed to appreciate the nature, lots of windows all around and every single one of them has great view.
Just as splendid was our host, Kristin.
We were so welcomed that it felt like visiting one of our family members. Not only she gave us organized, kind tips on traveling when we first met, Kristin kept giving us updates on local weather, so we can plan our trip according to ever-changing Icelandic weather.
I would recommend this inspiring house to everyone!
This is a warm, comfortable home with panoramic views in an awe - inspiring, rugged setting. The kitchen is sleek and well-equipped, and we loved just cooking here and hanging out in the living room, watching the weather change. The main bedroom also has a view. The place is surrounded by nature and very private and tranquil. It's near many hikes and drives that you will want to take---if you can tear yourselves away from the comforts of the house. The hosts were very helpful and the place was spotlessly clean for us upon arrival. Thank you Kristen and Magnus!
Home out of a contemporary architecture magazine? Check. World-class water view to the front? Oh, and great mountain view to the rear? It's got those. Friendly hosts who give you a warm welcome and then leave you to enjoy your stay with trust and privacy? That's a yes (thanks again Kristin and Magnus).
I'd like to come up with some negative points for variety with other reviews but struggle - for a larger (3 adults, 3 children) group like ours, the lack of a second bathroom was the closest we could think of, but that was already clear from the description. The photos give a full and accurate impression.
Overall a special home and place. It was our family's first visit to Iceland, so we're hardly experts, but we also felt the location was an excellent base for an introduction to this beautiful country - an easy 30 minute drive north of Reykjavik and with fabulous scenic routes all round.
In a word: spectacular. Beautiful house, perfectly appointed, with views to die for. Can't thank Kirsten and Magnus enough for taking the time to get the little details right. We've already booked a second week to see the Northern Lights before Xmas. Heaven.
