Stylish, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect headquarters for our stay over trip. We used this location as a starting point for many day trips around the island. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to downtown, restaurants and the harbor area. There is a grocery store and coffee shop just a couple of blocs away. Parking was easy right in front of the apartment. We walked everywhere we went in Reykjavik, but getting to and from the apartment by car was simple.

Beautifully Renovated Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Newly renovated and nicely furnished apartment within walking distance of central downtown. There was private parking in the back and a grocery and bakery nearby. The owner was very helpful with directions and advice. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

Great Space!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is perfect for a couple or small family. Location was ideal and I would recommend highly!! Having use of the rental car is also extremely convenient. Market is short walk. The family was gracious enough to drive us back and forth to the airport. They were excellent about returning texts and answering any questions. Overall great experience and great value

Great location and apartment has everything you need and more!

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is fantastic! It has everything you need and more including a tv with netflix for the kids:) Clean, modern and very comfortable for our family of four people. Location is very good, has free parking and is close to grocery shopping and other amenities. The city centre is just a short 8 min walk away. It is also easy to get in and out of the city with a car to go on your road trips. We rented a car from the owners as well and very glad we did....great vehicle with good navigation to get around the island. Laughey and Helgi were very good to deal with including arranging for the car to be at the airport when we arrived very early in the morning, answering any questions we had promptly, and even providing a coffee grinder when I asked if the apartment had one. No hesitation in recommending the apartment we had a great experience!

Best welcome to Iceland!

  • 5 of 5

Traveling can be stressful and booking this home will take all your fears away!

Laufey and her husband Hilge were more than welcoming! They also run a small car rental which is worth including with your stay if you are driving. Hilge picked us up (4 people with 4 suitcases) and provided some local information on our drive to the apartment. The apartment was clean and beautifully decorated! Great location! We could walk into the main part of town and also to the harbor. There was a food store 1 1/2 blocks away and a community pool about 5-6 blocks away. We stayed in Reykjavik for 3 nights then drove west and north for 4 more days. Upon our return, Hilge met us at the apartment (on the way to airport since we came from the west) to drive us with the car back to the airport. It was so nice to end our trip without having to worry where to leave the car. We were in Reykjavik during some unusually warm days, so the apartment was a bit warm but there was a fan provided that we set up by the front door to pull cooler air in. It worked great! We cooked at home one night and the kitchen had everything we needed.

There was a clothes washer too (although we had no idea how to use it nor did we need it, it was a nice option).

We highly recommend this apartment as well as any apartment booked with Laufey. They were so nice, professional and easy to work with!

Wonderful stay in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect, well equipped and comfortable. The location is walking distance to the city center, lots restaurants and shopping, and close to the sea. We also rented a car from the host, perfect for 4 people, a nice car at a reasonable rate. We used it often, it was extremely convenient. The hosts were lovely, we hope to be back again!
