Excellent apartment

Great apartment near center of town. It was very clean and Gudmundur was very hospitable and made us feel at home. He was also able to rent us a car for day use. Iceland was fabulous. Beautiful landscape and very safe. Thank you, we will try for your apartment again when we come

Iceland Adventure & family time

  • 5 of 5

Being new to VBRO and traveling so far, Gudmudur was an excellent host. He was easy to deal with, respondsive to email and met us upon arrival at the flat ( at 1 AM). The apartment was clean, plenty of space and close to downtown. Bottom line, there were no surprises! Additionally, the apartment was well stocked with appliances. There are 2 food stores very close which made things very nice. Thanks, Ken & Krissy

Thank you Gudmundur for a wonderful vacation to Iceland. Your apartment was exactly as described and my daughters and I were more than pleased. The location is excellent and the parking space was definitely a plus. You promptly answered any questions. I would definitely recommend your property.

Loved our stay at Asholt 42!

  • 5 of 5

We knew the minute we booked Gudmunder's apartment that we had picked the perfect place for our Iceland visit. The apartment was charming, the location was perfect, and we loved the feeling of living like a local while in Iceland. The service we received from both Gudmunder and Jonas was outstanding. Great communication leading up to our visit. And Jonas greeted us as promised, worked swiftly to get the apartment ready so we could check in early, and even carried our bags from storage to the apartment so we didn't have to. Having Hotel Klettur around the corner is great. Never a problem with any of our pick ups or drop offs. Our stay in Iceland was amazing and if we ever return, we will absolutely stay at Asholt 42!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The apartment in Asholt is centrally located, very convenient to get to by car or bus. Parking is ample and convenient. There are numerous shops and coffee houses nearby. It's a few minutes' walk from the waterfront, and close to roads that lead out of Reykjavik for day trips.

The apartment itself is very thoughtfully laid out and appointed. There's everything you need for a stay of any length. While the place is clean and crisply designed, it feels like someone's home and is very habitable. Everything is superbly maintained and the hosts show every consideration. I can't wait to get back!
