Far exceeded our expectations! I would rate higher than 5 stars if I could!
My husband and I traveled to Iceland for our first time last week and stayed 8 nights. It was an amazing trip! The apartment had all the amenities needed to be very comfortable and felt like our home away from home. The apartment was even bigger than we expected based on the pictures on the website. It turned out to be about a 5 minute drive into downtown Reykjavik. Siggi was the absolute best host - we cannot say enough good things about him! Not only did he go out of his way to pick us up/ drop us off at the airport, but he provided a car, GPS, and cell phone for our use the entire time there. He also gave us a brief tour of Reykjavik and the areas close to the apartment and pointed out the grocery store, bakery, and gas stations to get us started on navigating the area. Additionally, Siggi gave us his recommendations on the best places to see for our drive to the Golden Circle (he wrote them down for us on a piece of paper to take along with us) and recommended the best time to begin our road trip for the day. All of the stops he recommended were amazing - our favorites were Geysir and Gulfoss. We found ourselves excited to get to talk to Siggi when we got back to the apartment each evening to tell him how our day was. He was even kind enough to ask his friend to give us a call on the cell phone he let us borrow in case the Northern Lights made an appearance. During our stay, we enjoyed the Blue Lagoon, the Southern Iceland tour with the glacier walk/ black sand beach/ walk behind the waterfall, bathing at the Laugarvatn Fontana, and driving all over the place to experience breathtaking views and taking in the postcard-perfect views every turn we took. Downtown Reykjavik was also very nice, and safe, and had many excellent restaurants. We weren't ever disappointed with the food. Overall, we found the Icelanders to be truly helpful and nice (Siggi and his family were no exception to this!) It was an experience and adventure that we'll never forget. Thank you, Siggi, for your hospitality and for making our stay an unforgettable one! We hope to be able to come back to visit again soon! ...And if you are searching for an apartment to rent in Iceland, look no further - it doesn't get much better than this place!
