About Helga Gudmundsdottir

I'm a musician, born in Reykjavik, but actually living with my family in Paris.

Our little grey house is our family house, and we all need to go there as often as possible meeting family and friends, and enjoying life.

We will be happy to have you as guest in our cosy house in downtown Reykjavik. We like the charm of old houses, having everything we need few steps away...

Helga Gudmundsdottir purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Helga Gudmundsdottir chose Reykjavik

A great location.

This house is just one street from the main street Laugavegur, but still on a quiet part of Grettisgata.

Only 900m from the FlyBusTerminal BSI, with departures for day trip/or longer excursions.

What makes this apartment unique

It's nice to hear the church bells on Sunday mornings, and going swimming in Sundhollin, only 1 min walk. The sea side is only 300m from the house, great for an evening walk.There are many day trips destinations to do from Reykjavik, in summer or winter, I'll give you some travel tips.

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was one of the best holiday flats we've stayed. Very smooth and helpful communication, the flat was tastefully decorated with real vintage furniture and equipment. We were able to take a full advantage of the location and the car that we also rented from the owner. We truly enjoyed our stay, thanks to the flat! Takako H. (England)

A place for nice, cute and calm stay in reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

It's a really good flat and after some minutes you ll feel like at home and as a citizen of reykjavik. The city center is around the corner and a good place to start visiting iceland. We were there with a baby, and that was no problem to handle these circumstances. Thanks to Helga :)

a perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

L’appartement est joliment décoré et a beaucoup de charme. En plus il est très confortable et fonctionnel. Vraiment, on s’y sent chez soi immédiatement ! Par ailleurs, il est très bien situé, à la fois très central, (on peut tout faire à pied) et aussi dans une rue de petites maisons typiques. C’est le genre d’endroit qui contribue en grande partie à la réussite d’un voyage d’autant plus qu’en hiver, on y passe pas mal de de temps !

A cosy home from Home

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a 10 night stay in the apartment in July 2015. The location was just right - within an easy walk of the city highlights, but in a peaceful residential street. There are lots of good restaurants nearby - but if you fancy cooking, the kitchen is very well supplied. It was great to meet Helga - who was a great host and pointed out some things for us that we might otherwise have missed. I've already recommended the apartment to any friends who might make the trip to Iceland. Thanks again Helga!

Centrally located - perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time staying at this apartment. It was really the perfect location; just around the block from the local hotspring/pool, and within easy walking distance from all the major sights of the city. The apartment itself was small, but plenty of room for the 3 of us - we each had our own space, and the kitchen was great to have. The food store was only a few blocks away, as well as the main shopping street with restaurants, cafe's, bakeries, you name it. The use of the car was very handy. Although there was no free parking on the apt. street, it was easy to find a free space close by. Will definitely stay here again if I get the chance.

Perfect for our family, great location

  • 5 of 5

Helga's flat was perfect for our family of 4 (2 boys ages 9 & 11). We could close off & darken the two bedrooms enough to adjust to the time difference & long daylight hours at our own pace. The key-code entry enabled our kids to wander around a bit on their own, usually looking for neighborhood cats to give treats to. The short walk to cafes, restaurants, grocery store, cute shops, ATM & swimming pool were very convenient. Driving around the country was *so* interesting. For people planning a trip to Iceland, we highly recommend The Small Book of the Icelander :-)

Had an amazing time!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I enjoyed staying in your flat. We love how close it was to everything that we didn't need to rent a car our entire time in Reykjavik. Another plus is any tour and the fly bus pick up with in a block of the flat which made it extremely easy for us to plan site seeing tours and to get to and from the airport.

We also loved how cozy the flat was and all the amenities provided. We'd definitely stay in this flat again on our return next year as Iceland has become a yearly vacation for me for the past 3 years now. Takk Fyrir!!!!!

A great evening walk, few min. walk from the house

Two apartments in the same house, and in the heart of Reykjavik, only 300m from the sea.

Great location, close to coffee shops, restaurants, shops and museums of the city, but still in a quiet street.

The house is only at 900 meters from the FlyBus terminal BSI, or 15 min by walk.
