About Bjorn

I am a property manager. I will be happy to help you find your holiday sites in Iceland and and point out to you the must see places.

Why Bjorn chose Heimar

I chose this place because of the location and the fact that I can host 4-14 people in both apartments. The technical problem mentioned in one of my guests comments have been dealt with. I installed a new toilet, a new water heater and a new 25 amp. power line for my new stow. So there is no more running water in the toilet, or black outs during cooking or unsafe water heater.

What makes this apartment unique

This is a value apartment. You have the place for your self for a fair price. Fish restaurant and Domino's pizza take away just downstairs.

Ideally located and highly functional apartment owned by a responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

Björn’s apartment was perfect for our needs of two couples. The apartment is in an excellent location. We rented a car and parking was free and immediately behind the apartment. The description and pictures of the apartment was accurate. The apartment was clean, tidy and modestly appointed but had all of the necessary essentials. As mentioned Björn’s communication style was appreciated. He was extremely prompt and responsive. I never had a need to meet with Björn because the whole arrival process (key left in lockbox) was seamless but I felt confident that if I contacted Björn with any concerns he would have responded and acted quickly. The apartment is modest but extremely functional and priced correctly.

Nice apartment and Bjorn helpful

  • 5 of 5

Nice apartment with really comfy bed. Close to shops and bus services. The flat was well stocked with towels etc, and was clean.

Our only difficulty was with the snow, and that was certainly outside Bjorns control!

Thank you.

Enjoyed our Stay - no issues at all

  • 4 of 5

We just returned (today) from spending 9 nights/10 days. Bjorn was very helpful and gave us plenty of ideas on how to enjoy our stay in Reykjavik. The apartment was perfect for four people and the rooms were a good size, and like his ads says, budget friendly. It was clean and very comfortable. Agree with the first remark on the toilet, however, we mastered flushing the toilet quickly without a run on, and there were no issues at all for the rest of our stay. We did not use the stove/cooking plates, so I cannot comment on what the previous renters said. There were restaurants/coffee shops/grocery store/department store, etc. all within minutes of walking. We took #14 bus 4 times during our stay, $4 ISK ride, and the bus stop is two minutes from the apartment. It takes you to a stop close to the Harbour Front, the same for a stop at Bankastraeti/Laugavegur - fabulous shopping/tourist area. Even fun to do the whole bus route - LOL. Overall, we enjoyed our visit to Reykjavik, the apartment was perfect for our needs (cost for stay very reasonable), good locale, felt very safe in the neighbourhood, the people were friendly, helpful and spoke english. We would not hesitate to rent this apartment again in the future. Thanks Bjorn !

nice apartment with a few technical problems

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was large enough and plenty of room in the bathroom,too. Bjorn was helpful and flexible. And free parking place by the house is comfortable. Some weak points still there: flushing the toilet didnt work - so we used the biggest kettle for it. The wire of the electric water pan got hot so we thought it might be safer not to use it. Cooking with 2 plates at same time made a black out. This should be quite a good place without those technical problems!

Owner's Response: Flushing the toilet does not work if you turn off the water. The guest turned off the water because the water was running through the toilet all the time. To prevent that from happening you just have to touch the flushing button a little bit and the water stops running. The water cattle works and has worked all summer for all my guests without a problem. However, I will replace it next time the apartment is free, just to make heating the water perfectly safe. I didn't know about the problem with the stow. But I know why the blackout occurs. A new power line has to be installed to the cooker for 16 amp. power. I will have an electrician come in as soon as possible to fix this so the oven and more then one heating plate can be used at the same time.
