Amazing location, great furnishings, charming apartment, pleasant owners, and one qualifier.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this lovely apartment with our two adult children. We made Reykjavik our base for a week in Iceland, traveling most days across the country for hiking, waterfalls, and all this beautiful country has to offer. The apartment is in the most amazing location with easy access to absolutely everything in Reykjavik including restaurants, shopping, and the "big church" (which also happens to be the main view). We had most everything we needed including a few extra towels but no wash cloths (is this just a thing in Europe?). I had to buy a few kitchen staples when we went grocery shopping and wish there had been a coffee maker (there was a french press and a percolator type contraption). But the biggest qualifier is that this is a second story apartment (no elevator) and the resident on the first floor is a heavy smoker. While we could not smell the smoke up in the bedrooms it was very strong, at all times, upon entering the apartment from the street and all the way up the stairs into part of the main living space of the rental. I generally kept a few windows open and doors to the main rooms shut but could often smell the smoke in the kitchen area wafting up from below. While this was annoying and left an impression, we decided we would still stay here again because of all the positives the apartment has to offer (including a half bath on the main floor). It is just a shame there is any negative to relay because everything else is fantastic.

Owner's Response: Dear Ned and family . I am so sorry about the smoker , there is a old woman that owns the apartment on the first floor and she doesn't really live there , she is 87 years old and visits her apartment once in awhile, she will not be there all summer . There is a coffee maker in the apartment ! I will put another kind ? There is a washing machine in the house but not in the apartment , it is in a room on the corridor on the first floor , and a drier, and in that room there are plenty of towels, my daughter must have forgotten to show you that room, I am sorry about that . I wash happy to have you and your family in my apartment and I hope you will be back .. Best regards to you all . Sveinsdottir

This apartment far exceeded our expectations. From the pictures, we figured it would be nice, but once we entered, we were blown away by the detail and beauty of this place. It is in the most perfect location, central to anything you want to do in Reykjavik. It was clean and the communication was very prompt and friendly. We would return in a heartbeat to this apartment.

Rental was so beautiful and completely exceeded our expectations. Perfect location and the most gorgeous decor. 100% made our trip and would definitely rent again. Host was amazing, greeting us when we got there and replying to emails very quickly. Best experience we could have imagined.

Beautiful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights and loved this place. It is beautifully designed and furnished. Very light and spacious. Great views from both floors. It is full of art and books and music. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom is huge and a wonderful place to lie in the bath after running the marathon. The perfect place to stay in Reykavik. It is very central but also quiet. Lisbet the owner was very welcoming. Don't stay anywhere else!

Incredible experience

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is insane; so nice, spacious, gorgeous, and located in the perfect spot. Book it without any hesitation. If you are considering another location, choose this one instead. Lisbet is an amazing host, kind, responsive and discreet. The location is great for exploring the city. No need for a fact, we regretted having one! The bathroom is so pretty and you see the snow tipped mountains while you shower. Tons of towels and sheets, which was nice for the long stay! Loved the outdoor patio. We enjoyed wine and cheese on a gorgeous day. Great sound system and the piano was fun to have for our friend that played. Beds were comfortable and very clean. The darkening shades were a nice bonus since it's always daylight. I brought an eye mask and the combo made for a great nights sleep. Very pleased and grateful for this fabulous apartment! It's GORGEOUS!!!

It doesn't get better than this!

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back home from a wonderful week staying in LIsbet's amazing apartment. It is light and airy, decorated beautifully, with everything you could need, including an incredible collection of books. The location is perfect - right on one of the most central and interesting streets in Reykjavik, yet not noisy. The views from the upstairs windows on a clear day were spectacular. Lisbet was a wonderful host. On the first day our flight arrived early and she let us check way ahead of time. She was always very friendly and available when we needed her, but otherwise inconspicuous. Highly recommended! Brett
