Additional Location Information

The neighborhood is the tip of a long narrow peninsula called Hliðsnes and is sparsly populated with a total of only six houses of which two are Hlidsnes House 1 and House 2. It is a country side setting on the ocean front. There is virtually no traffic except for the few locals (8) (email: hidden) there. It is a pardise for birdwatchers and is considered one of the top two places in Iceland to observe birds with regular annual sightings of at least 41 species of which 25 nest in the area.
The view is panoramic with the Reykjanes peninsula and its mountains to the south-west, south and south-east and continuing east the mountains on Hellisheiði. Further to the north there is Vífilfell then Skálafell and then a fantastic view of Mount Esja the "Mountain of Reykjavik" as it is sometimes called and further to the north-west there is Akrafjall.
Birdwatching and just taking a walk in the peaceful surroundings is nice. In the wintertime as the place is far enough from the city lights the starry skies with the constellations and the Aurora Borealis are always visible on clear nights. Books on birds and the night sky are provided. Horses are grazing in the fields all around, often with new born ponies. There is also a fantastic swimming pool in the area (5 min. drive or a nice 30 min. walk) with a large slide and heated pools, a sauna and steambath.
The location is ideal for exploring the south-west part of Iceland and for day tours around the Reykjanes peninsula, to the Blue Lagoon, to the south coast via Krýsuvík. Thingvellir is less than one hour away and Gullfoss/Geysir about an hour and half.
