A GEM RIGHT IN THE CITY CENTER

Reykjavik Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our house is a traditional Icelandic cottage and is situated in the charming historic center of Reykjavik.

The apartment has two floors. Upstairs there is a spacious master bedroom with a queen-size bed and a large closet. The bedroom has a south facing balcony. The bathroom is upstairs and has a shower and a jacuzzi-style bathtub.

The downstairs has a bright living area with a convertible sofa, dining table, and a full open kitchen. The living area opens out to a south facing balcony as well.

The apartment sleeps 2-4 people comfortably. Towels and linen are provided. The stairs up to the bedroom and bath are quite steep so the place is not suitable for small children.

Enjoy staying in a typical Icelandic cottage, steps away from great restaurants, museums, shopping, and the harbor area with its Puffin express and whale watching tours.

PERFECT LOCATION! PERFECT ACCOMODATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
Could not have stayed at a better place! The cottage is perfectly located. Everything is easily accessible/walking distance from the cottage. The famous Bæjarins beztu is a two minute walk away, the dock (with Cafe Haiti-amazing coffee) is a two minute walk away, the amazing seafood cellar is a two minute walk away, the bus station (to take you to the Blue Lagoon) is about a 15-20 minute walk away. Perfect location. The cottage is also in GREAT shape. It's very cozy and nicely decorated. We loved having the kitchen available to prepare breakfast/lunches (since food in Iceland tends to be a bit pricey). Definitely recommend and we will be back again soon!

Charming and Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in Gudrun's lovely cottage for 5 nights and had a wonderful stay. The photos are spot on. The location was perfect for wandering Reykjavik, walking to the harbor, and shopping. Great restaurants were right around the corner. Gudrun was very responsive to e-mails and has great pride in her cottage as the kitchen was well-stocked and everything was well-maintained and very clean. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to avoid the higher-priced hotels and enjoy some peace and quiet in a lovely residential area.

Perfect Location - Great Size - Super Convenient

  • 5 of 5
We had high hopes after reading all the reviews on here and seeing the pictures and the cottage did not disappoint! It is in a great location with loads of restaurants and sights to see in walking distance. The tourist center is practically next door and there is a market right around the corner - we took advantage and cooked breakfast every morning and a dinner too. Gudrun was great to work with and made securing the accommodation a breeze. Highly recommended!!!

Lovely Cottage Right Downtown

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was very well furnished and well located around the corner from the tourist information center. It is very spacious and very comfortable. There is a small deck just on the main floor as well a nice place to relax at the end of the day. There are plenty of tourist information books maps and folders which we used to help plan our days. The bedroom and bathroom were very comfortable and clean.

Fantastic for Family of Four!

  • 5 of 5
First, many thanks to Gudrun who was easy to work with over the 'net. Our only regret was not meeting her in person! We loved this tidy home, that is surprisingly quiet, given that it right around the corner from all the fun action in Reykjavik! Much more spacious than the pictures can show. Mom & Dad took the big bed upstairs, and our teenage son and daughter shared a comfortable pullout downstairs. Yes, the sun never sets in July, and there are plenty of windows, so consider bringing your blackout-sleep shades. One note...getting here is easy...take the big Flybus from the airport into town. You can transfer to a waiting mini-bus. Then tell them you are going to the Youth Hostel stop. They will leave you 30 meters from the apartment door. Much easier than I thought. We rented a CheapJeep for 24 hours, and there is just enough space in Gudrun's driveway for one car overnight. We enjoyed cooking and eating in her stylish kitchen/dining room. All the amenities and right downtown! Highly, highly recommend.

Great place

  • 5 of 5
Place was as advertised - great location close to downtown and very clean. My only (minor) complaint - if you sleep downstairs in pullout, there aren't enough curtains to block out street lights.
