ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL LOCATION, HOUSE AND LANDLORD

  • 5 of 5
This house is in the very center of Reykjavik, yet on a side street that remains quiet as the partying Icelanders hit their weekend pace. Two bedrooms with very comfortable king size beds, a solid kitchen which we used for most meals and a warm, inviting living room area. There is a 24 hour grocery store close by, Sandholt is a wonderful bakery and Te & Kaffie has remarkably good Icelandic coffee. Better still, the landlord was helpful in every way. We arrived at 1:00AM but were able to access the house and the landlord provided parking right next door and recommended things to see and do in Iceland. We would easily stay here anytime in Iceland.

BEAUTIFUL AND COMFORTABLE HOME

I stayed with my brother for 3 nights and had an amazing time on the island. The location could not be more convenient in downtown Reykjavik. The owner was extremely helpful in recommending tours, restaurants and sights. I would absolutely stay again!

Really lovely house,nice decor and all the mod cons needed,big range style cooker.It also has a balcony overlooking the city and is right in the centre of reykjavic just off the main high street but in a quiet road so no traffic noise.I can't fault the house at all it was all we wanted and more.And David is a very helpfull owner on hand to offer travel advice and help if needed,Iceland is such a diverse country with so many beautiful sights,we had our own car and drove to all the main attractions and were lucky to see the northern lights as an added bonus.We will definitely be returning!!!

GREAT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
My Husband, 8 year old, 4 year old, and myself just returned from a wonderful stay at this property. The stairs were a bit steep and I had the kids takes their socks off to go up and down them. Besides this, the house perfectly accommodated our family - the laundry and kitchen were a godsend and I liked that there is a door between the two bedrooms. The location allowed us to walk to everything - shopping, groceries, city centre, museums, and the excursions office is just down the hill - we didn't even need a car. Also easy was taking the bus to visit the swimming pool and the zoo. The house is well maintained, and well supplied with towels, cleaning supplies, and all the basics you would expect were covered.

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
We want to thank you for your hospitality. The house was extremely clean and well organized. Our family of 5 enjoyed the close proximity to everything the centre of Reykjavik has to offer. We found the local (Bonus) grocery store just steps away. In fact, after we left your house and moved to a hotel to spend our last 2 days near the Blue Lagoon...we missed the house immensely. Thanks again for your prompt communication before and after our trip.

GREAT PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and a couple of my friends rented this awesome house for several days last week, and it couldn't have been in a better location. David is a great owner, and his son was very cool about bringing additional things over - even when it turned out we didn't need it. Cannot say enough good things, it's right in the heart of everything!
