Description

The Space

Curated by the owners & designers of Reykjavík Trading Co. (an Icelandic / California homeware company) the Garden Cottage is their first project of creating a home space for guests to experience a unique & cozy feeling while visiting Iceland. The bottom floor of the 1884 built home has been completely remodeled for guests. Everything in the home has been either made by hand by R.T.Co. or selected from their collection of preferred products & appliances. Anthony Bacigalupo & Ýr Káradóttir, the owners of The Garden Cottage, live & work in the separate upper part of the historic home & their R.T.Co. workshop is located in the back of the garden for guests to visit, learn about the pieces being crafted, or just to have a cup of coffee. We wanted to create a place for guests to experience "slow living" & create a special stay. Having designed spaces for hotels, cafes, bars we decided to put our inspiration & collection into this project & build something completely one-of-a-kind in Iceland. The Garden Cottage includes: - Bosch & Smeg appliances - Aeropress & grinder for coffee - Art pieces & photography by a selection of Icelandic artists - Simple white noise machines with USB charging ports - Classic record player with a selection of vintage vinyls - King & Queen-sized Simba mattress with luxury down pillows & duvets - Wifi & Bluetooth Speaker - Backyard Filson horseshoe set - Weber Smokey Joe BBQ - Yoga mat - Freshly baked goodies upon arrival - Conveniently located across the road from the town's main bus terminal which will take you to Reykjavík & beyond For families: - Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair & Stokke cradle - Bugaboo stroller upon request - BloomBaby lounger chair

Guest Access

Our guests have the whole bottom house to themselves, with a selection of curated magazines, vinyls & products from R.T.Co. & other designers. The home was built in 1884 & we have been remodeling & bringing back the style it once was but also bringing back the garden & farm style that was once so prominent back in the day.

Interaction with Guests

We believe in hospitality to the fullest which sadly doesn't exist anymore in places. Since we live on the property we can answer any questions you have or have you in for a coffee if you need help deciding your journey in Iceland.

The Neighborhood

The Garden Cottage is in the oldest part of the town where there are some great farm-to-table restaurants, craft coffee, bars, live music, artist studios & classic swimming pools. It is also on the way to Blue Lagoon & a little known forest & lake that we can show you.

Getting Around

Our little town can be easily walked around & explored. Shuttle stops for airport & Blue Lagoon are 3 minutes walk next to the ocean & the bus terminal into Reykjavík is close as well.

Other Things to Note

The home is in the middle of an amazing interior remodel at the moment & will be completed end of June. When you arrive the interior (bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms) will have a different look. Contact us if you would like to know more.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
