A prime location.

My name is Gísli Örn Lárusson. I am Icelandic.
For past twelve years I have been spending most of time time abroad in London where I have a base, but do travel a lot.
Still my heart is were my home is in my apartment at Melhagi Reykjavík, where most of my personal things are - apart from my books, which I have not managed to unpack.
You will no doubt note that in my apartment Buddha is dominating, for the reason that his wisdom has influenced greatly my own life.
I do sincerely hope that you will feel comfortable in my tranquil home
Gísli purchased this apartment in 2007
This property is different from most apartments offered in Reykjavík, designed to host guests mainly during the summer season.
My apartment is my home, where I am offering to share with you, as mentioned above.
My sister Erna Svala, who is moving back to Iceland first week in July after having lived in various places for past 14 years.
She will be managing my apartment, living only 5 minutes away
Her profile includes for example - She will be delighted to advice, arrange and recoman where to go for dinner etc.
British Embassy in Denmark
April 2008 – August 2010 (2 years 5 months)
I organised all events, dinner parties and other gatherings done by the British Embassy plus other companies working in co-operation with the Embassy. I was also in charge of running the Residence of the British Embassy and the staff working there
Enjoyed stay in a great location. Quiet street - easy walking distance to main area of downtown Reykjavik. Enjoyed being just a few blocks walk to the water. Apartment is very nice. Gisli was very responsive to all questions and I would definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting Reykjavik. Just wish we could have stayed longer!
The flat was exactly like the photos. Everything we needed was on hand. The bed was super comfy. The location was fantastic. Our hostess was waiting for us when arrived.
Three of us (family with teen) stayed at this apt. for three nights and appreciated the amenities, cleanliness, and location. The apt had everything one would need for turn key living. We could walk to downtown in a very short amount of time and could access the trail along the water for runs very easily. We had a car and parking was easy to find in close proximity to the apt. Gisli provided quick and informative contact for us. I would readily stay in this apt again.
Gisli was a great host and very kind to check to make sure we had everything we needed. House is nicely stocked with everything you need and lots of space. SO much better than staying in a hotel. Thank you so much for your hospitality.
Iceland is an exciting place to be these days but it makes it a perfect trip when you have accommodations like we had offered by Gisli Larusson. The walk to downtown Reykjavik is only about 20 minutes and most of the airport transfers and tour connectors can be picked up at the Radisson Hotel which is five minutes away. The accommodations themselves are immaculate and it looked like the bathroom had been recently renovated. The residential area where the home is located offered a safe and beautiful surrounding for walking. We would highly recommend this property and also would like to thank Gisli's sister Erna Svala Ragnarsdottir for meeting us upon arrival.

The apt was very comfortable and was a great alternative to staying at a hotel. Gisli and his sister Erna were very accommodating and helpful. I made a last second reservation and was in touch with Gisli almost immediately. He made arrangements to get me into the apt early. There is a thermal pool (one of the best in the city), an excellent café and market just a block away. Easy 15-20 minute walk to downtown and shorter to the Old Harbour area. The beach is 5 mins walk. One note...watch out for the washer/dryer--if you choose incorrectly you will boil your clothes. Gisli, please write out instructions for normal use, the manual is useless.
I would definitely stay in this comfortable apt again. In fact I stayed in the apt at the beginning and end of my trip to Iceland. No need to worry, this apt is great. I highly recommend it!

5 minutes walk to the seaside, where a walking, running, biking track is around Reykjavik
