A nice house 160 sqm in south-west site of Iceland just 700 m. from the ocean and 50 km. from the capital.

Our house lies in a residential area Akranes and it has about 6500 residents. About 40 minutes by car to the city of Iceland Reykjavík. It is also near a beautiful nature both the ocean and mountains so there is a lot you can do not far away from the house.

Our home is a lovely old fashioned home on 2 floors with a nice garden that belongs to the house. It has the charm of an old house but we are rebuilding some of it every year.
We made the terrace bigger to put a hut tub on it so now we can take a bath outsite all year around because here is a lot of hot natural wather.
On the first floor there is a modern kitchen and open living room and dining room a small guest toilet near the hall. Then when you come up the stairs there are 3 bedrooms one is for our 5 year old son so the bed in his room is for a child under 10 years old but the other ones are for the parents and another one is for an adult ( Our teenager is 13 years old). There is also a room we use as a closet and in there, there is a mattress for a couple if you want. In the parents bedroom is a computer and Internet (free access) and wifi. There is also a nice bathroom on the floor where you can take a hot nice bath and a shower.

During the summer on a sunny day, we enjoy being in the garden and take our coffee out site and our kids play in the garden. There is an outdoor barbecue, a closed sandbox to play in for the children and a swing. And if the weather is nice we live about 10 minutes walk from a really nice beach which has hot showers in the summer (and you do not have to pay for it ) and also about 2 minutes walk from the beach there is a nice swimming pool with several hot tubs and a sauna.

Our house is perfect for families, but also for couples or singles. It can host 6-7 persons (as we have big mattresses in the closet room) We have TV and Play-station 3 and some DVDs.

We have also a small house in our garden with 8 chickens so there are fresh eggs every day but we will ask our friend to feed them when we are gone so there is no
responsibility because of them and they can be in the house all the time no problem so you do not have to have anything to do with them if you do not want it. They are really friendly and we often let the children play with them and hold them and they don't do anything.

We took the photos now in the winter time in December but the garden is much nicer in the summertime. Now there is snow everywhere and about 18-20 hours of darkness but in summer there is about 4-6 hours of night so people from other countries find that really strange.

We rent out our basement but there is a small flat there and there is a single boy about 30 years old renting it and we rent also our garage there we made a little flat as well and there is a senior citizen renting it and they are really nice and friendly. We do not normally notice that they live here they are so quiet and nice to live with. Also if you need any help with something in the house they are so helpful and they will help you no problem.

Our car will be included and it is a Ford Focus C-max 11 years old but a nice family car for 5 people.
