Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

I came here with 4 of my friends for my 30th birthday, aging from mid 20's to early 40's. The apartment is stunning, in a great location with lots of space. All of us were blown away with the interior. We were met by the owners on arrival. We gave them a text on the 2nd day to ask a question, we received a quick and helpful reply. Wifi is of good quality and fast. Barely a 5min walk to the main shopping street/coach terminal. Great value. Really couldnt ask for more. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to friends/family.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place!

We were a family of 7 with an extra 2 friends and not once did this place feel small. There was so much space that we really felt we could be together and apart all at the same time

3 very good size bedrooms, balconies on every corner and plenty of seating this made such a great base for exploring Reykjavik. You are a 5-10 minute walk from supermarkets, the port, centre of town and all the shops so getting places wasnt an issue. There was a small lift if you had travellers with prams or were less mobile and there was a lovely view of the streets (not amazing but sweet)

Couldnt have asked for more (actually some more mugs, but this is hardly the end of the world!)

Cant recommend highly enough

A real home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 adults who could not have wished for a more perfect home away from home whilst visiting Iceland. This property is spacious, modern and very comfortable. It is ideally located, being only minutes walk to the main streets of Reykjavik. Tour companies were happy to pick us up and return us to the door. Visiting in the heart of winter, it was great to have a big, cosy living area and well appointed kitchen. Having two spacious bathrooms was a real bonus, especially after a long day out in the cold. We had been travelling for several weeks when we arrived - I never thought I would be so glad to see a washing machine and drier! Comfortable beds, quality furnishings and good quality appliances made this property excellent value for money. Lovely Christmas decorations made us feel at home and the large windows were ideal for viewing the New Year fireworks. Audur and Burgur were very pleasant to deal with, even collecting us from the bus station on arrival.

We would definitely stay here again if we have the chance.

Perfect place for a large family group

  • 5 of 5

My extended family stayed in this apartment and found it met our needs very well. The apartment was clean, comfortable and spacious. With two downstairs bedrooms and an upstairs bedroom plus a separate television nook with a sofabed, we all (Icelandic grandmother with two adult American children and their families, six people total) all slept very well. Everyone commented that the beds were especially comfortable. Grandmother especially appreciated the elevator in the building. We were able to entertain many friends and relatives in the large common area and reasonably well-equipped kitchen. We did have difficulty adjusting to using the induction cooktop, having never used one before. We also really appreciated the parking space in the garage under the building, although we had some difficulty maneuvering our large SUV in the small garage. There was a lot of tourist information provided to help plan activities. We mostly interacted with Bergur who was very responsive and helpful, including allowing us to take possession soon after our early morning arrival in Iceland. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect luxury rental in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7 individuals stay in the unit and found it to be more than accommodating as far as space and comfort. Washer and Dryer in the apartment was a plus as we did a number of outdoor activities and ran out of clean clothes quicker than expected. The location to downtown is unmatched. Within a few blocks, you're at the center of it all, yet it was so quiet and peaceful, certainly slept better there than we do in Manhattan. We had a really incredible visit there and it was enhanced because we had such an affordable and nice space to stay in for a large group. Thanks to Audur for being flexible with our check in and overall good communication prior to the rental. Would love to visit again, such a beautiful country.
