We are a couple living and working in Iceland but like to travel a lot.

Rurik Vatnarsson purchased this apartment in 1999

We bought this house because we like the area, it is centrally located in Reykjavik so you are quick travelling in every direction and downtown.

This area is quiet and family friendly. A Mall and other shops are close by, bakery, pharmacy, cinema, ice cream shop etc. and also the emergency room and hospital. To go cycling from this area in every direction is convenient and a few minutes from the coast and the only beach in Reykjavik!

A great apartment in a great location for exploring this part of the island. Well equipped and very spacious at a very reasonable price. Would thoroughly recommend it. Hosts information and communication before our arrival was excellent.

Good Choice in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5
What a better choice than a hotel. Definitely more bang for your kronor. Very easy to get in and nout of town. (Esp with a GPS.) Nice lay out, plenty of room, good internet connection. Thanks to the hosts!

Very nice place to stay in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay, and we're appreciative of the space, facilities and quality. The kitchen was fully equipped with many essentials in place - valuable to us since we had most meals "at home" or as picnics (restaurant prices in Iceland are very high). Comfortable indeed. Hot water has a lovely olfactory tinge of its volcanic origin, but the cold water was super. Remember; you are in a home not a hotel, so there are some noises of folks coming and going and the tip-tap of dog feet. But sleeping was largely quiet. Hosts gave us distance - maybe too much, we would have enjoyed having some time with them. Good communication before the visit. We didn't use the offered hot tub (too cold and rainy). The only issue was the rainy and cold weather, but locals said it had been a strange summer. Not the fault of the hosts! This is a very good choice for a visit to Reykjavik and Iceland.

Our stay in Iceland

  • 5 of 5
The apartment looked exactly the way it appeared in the pictures. It was clean and comfortable. The owners were friendly and helpful.

We were located about 2-3 miles outside of the capital, but we were conveniently within short walking distance to several bus stops with service to the city. There is a large mall nearby with a market where we shopped each day for whatever food we needed.

I would certainly recommend this property to our traveling friends.

Lovely Flat in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a week in Reykjavik in June 2013. The apartment was wonderful: very clean, plenty of room, comfortable bed, and lots of light from the large living room windows. The kitchen was well-equipped for basic cooking needs, the bathroom was a nice size (also, it was attractive and the water worked well), and the living room is quite spacious with a large television and DVD/CD player (which came in handy to test some CDs we had bought downtown).

The owners are very friendly and helpful. They even offered the use of their hot tub, which we enjoyed one evening.

The flat is a short drive to downtown Reykjavik--probably about 10 minutes or so, depending on traffic. It is also possible to walk downtown (which we did), but you should enjoy walking if you do this (depending on your route, it will probably take between 45 minutes to an hour to reach the main shopping area--so check the weather forecast before your walk). Note that the flat is not in the heart of downtown Reykjavik--which can be an advantage depending on your plans (e.g., it makes driving in and out of Reykjavik (day trips for hikes in the countryside) quicker and easier). It is within easy walking distance of a grocery store, bakery, and a large (American-style) shopping mall (also with a grocery store).

Overall, this is a great apartment, wonderful owners, and we recommend it to friends travelling to Iceland. If you want an apartment right in the city center (e.g., you plan to spend most of your time in the city center and want a quick and easy walk to and from the pubs), look at the location carefully--it probably isn't for you (however, if you plan on driving into the center (and Iceland has a driving culture), then the apartment would still be great). Personally, we only went into the city center a few times. We were more interested in exploring nature than shopping. So, for us, the apartment was very nice. It was close enough to downtown for a decent walk (note: we had lovely weather during our stay), but it was ideally suited for using Reykjavik as a home-base for day excursions to the surrounding nature sites.

A plesent stay in Reykjavík

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this apartment in july 2013. My stay was most present and I enjoyed my stay in Reykjavík.

The apartment is very comfortable in a villa in a quiet neighborhood, only a few minutes by bicycle to the downtown area. The apartment has of one bedroom with queen bed, kitchen, living room and a bathroom with a great shower. TV in the living room and wireless internet access.

We borrowed the bicycles from the hosts, this was a great way to get around in Reykjavík and see all the interesting places.

Grocery stores, Kringlan Mall, bakery, pharmacy, ice cream shop, theater and movie theater etc. within easy walking distance.

I give this apartment my best recommendations and would definitely stay there again, if I’m ever in Reykjavík again
