Beautiful Home Base

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a great location. Was the perfect home base for seeing Iceland from Reykjavik for 4 of us.

Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The apartment was beautiful and well appointed. Also convenient.

The only problem for me was a curved staircase to the bedrooms that was difficult to manage with my arthritis. Would definitely stay there again.

Perfect apartment and location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our jaws dropped the moment we walked into the apartment!! The pictures don't begin to capture the beauty and charm. It had everything we needed and then some. The location couldn't be better. If you are taking tours you get picked up within a 3 minute walk at the church.

Would 100% rent this apartment again!!!!

Very fun artsy apartment in the middle of town and close to everything.

  • 4 of 5

We thought it was a great place to stay for our trip to Reykjavik! Furnishings were cool and artsy and piano in main room added a nice effect. Short walk to everything you would want to see in downtown area. Parking was easy. Views from almost every room were good (either the church or main streets from main level, and all the way to the water and mountains from upper level bedrooms and bathroom). Only complaint is one of our party wanted to take a bath and the bath tub water was shut off so the tub was unusable. We would stay there again for sure!

Owner's Response: Dear Ned, I would never, never, should down the water for the apartment , I give you my phone number and my daughter , you can send a sms or phone me or my daughter, if the water is shut down it is the all apartment or nothing, the weather can not be shut down for the bathtub only. All the best . Sveinsdottir.

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.
