Great apartment in central location

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days in this apartment with 3 adults and 4 children. Apartment was great and in very good condition. Sonja was an awesome host, extremely helpful. She was very accessible prior to our stay and answered all our emails and questions. On our arrival she welcomed us at the apartment and went above and beyond and even drove us to the nearby grocery store. Would come back there anytime. The only downside: could not pay with credit card.

Cozy retreat in the city

  • 4 of 5

6 of us stayed in this 3 bedroom apartment with one bathroom. The beds were comfy, the shower was warm and powerful and the towels were fluffy. What else could you want? Well perhaps a TV for us Americans! Sonja was wonderful to work with and I'd stay here again.

Perfect home base to explore Iceland

  • 5 of 5

It rained cold cats and dogs this weekend we came to explore Iceland, but that didnt keep us from having a fantastic stay. This apartment made a huge difference with a really nice, clean and comfortable home base, very very easy driving access to Iceland's best. The host was delightful and available and helped book us a reservation at a green house tomato farm that served food too ! The apartment is very nice with all the necessary amenities needed and indeed very good value for the money. I would stay here again!

Attractive little flat a few km from Reyk center

  • 4 of 5

I would give this place 5 stars if it were closer to the city center, had 2 bathrooms (there were 6 of us staying there), and had instructions for the washing machine in English. So let's call it a 4.5-star review, because I really really liked the flat. :-)

The decor is simple and attractive; parking is easy; the drive to the city center isn't bad; and the place was spotless when we arrived.

Sonja, the owner, is an absolute sweetheart who's ready to answer any questions and even gave us a fantastic recommendation for lunch the day we did the Golden Circle.

Next time we travel to Reykjavik, I expect my husband and I will check with Sonja first to see if her flat is available--it's a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay.

Beautiful and cozy home :)

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this home from March 30 –April 2. I was looking for somewhere centered between the attractions and downtown. The location was perfect and had everything near it( grocery, shopping...)When I contacted the owner Sonja she was really helpful and the whole renting process was very smooth.This property was perfect for my family. It was a nice and cozy home fully equipped with everything we needed, clean and well-maintained. The neighborhood was safe and I would definitely recommend this home to my family and friends. And next time if I come back and it is free, I would for sure would love to come back and stay in this lovely home. Thanks Sonja for opening up your home to us, we had an amazing stay!

logement simple et fonctionnel, situé près d'un grand axe de Reykjavik, très bien pour 6 personnes, un peu à l'étroit au delà.
