About Jon A. Jonsson

Hi, Im Jon.

I live with my husband Runi and our two girls. I am a Critical Care Nurse working as a flight nurse travelling to various places in the world to bring home people that have had accidents during their travels or are seriously ill.

I love being a host for our guest and do my best to make sure they are enjoying their stay with us.

Jon A. Jonsson purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jon A. Jonsson chose Reykjavik

We bought this property because it belonged to my husbands family. The house is one of the old West-side houses in Reykjavik located on a street along with most of the Embassies in Reykjavik. The location gives opportunities to live in the city with out using a car for your daily needs.

What makes this apartment unique

Being located here the house is with in a walking distance from the vivid live of the center but still in a silent neighborhood. From here it only takes 6 minutes to walk down to the harbor to go whale-watching or sea-angling.

Fantastic property and location for our larger group! I can't imagine a nicer space!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our apartment at 32 Tungata!! Though I mentioned we had a larger group (6 people) I believe you can rent part of the house as well as the lower level so you should definitely consider this space even if you are a smaller party!

The directions from the airport were fantastic and easy to follow -- take the flybus to the Salvation Army/Hotel Reykjavik Centrum and walk three short blocks up the street past all of the embassies!! We didn't rent a car as the grocery story was 1/2 a mile in the opposite direction and downtown was easily walkable -- everything was within a mile!

The city is full of charming shops and great food! We got a few recommendations from the owner Jon about a special restaurant for our friend's birthday dinner -- pricey but well worth it -- KOL, on the main street leading to the church you'll want to head up for fantastic views of the city!!

The house was fantastic -- a very large kitchen for coffee and breakfast and making dinner on the day we got storm warnings! 4 HUGE bedrooms with fantastic beds -- so comfortable and relaxing after a day of exploring (we did Extreme Iceland's Lava Cave Tour and Northern Lights combination -- not for the faint of heart but well worth it!!) . One bedroom/bathroom downstairs (not ensuite) with a shower and plenty of room and three bedrooms upstairs with an AMAZING bathroom with shower and deep soaking tub. A large dining room for all of your meals and adventure planning.

This place was just fantastic -- the location could not have been better, the layout and privacy for 2 couples a single (not related) and a 9 year old was fantastic. The decor is not fancy, just very cool and livable!! Great for families who want a space for kids to spread out and go to bed without being on top of each other -- great for friends after a week of travel who need space and the ability for everyone to be together!!

Will definitely come back to try out Iceland in the summer and will hope to stay at 32 Tungata!!

Look no further--32 Tungata is where you want to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Better than advertised! Our 2 couples shared the 1st and 2nd floors of this amazing, clean, and well appointed house. The main floor includes one bedroom and bathroom with shower, the dining room, a sitting room, and the kitchen. All the rooms are much larger than typical for European housing. The kitchen is well-stocked with a center island built around a top-of-the line gas oven and stovetop. The coffee maker got daily use. The second floor includes another bedroom and a 2nd bathroom with tub and a huge shower with 2 heads.

There are additional bedrooms that can be accessed for larger groups.

The house sits among the many embassies in a quiet neighborhood near a church and a small school. The main shopping and eating district is an easy 10 minute walk. A bakery and small grocery are the same 10 minute walk away, with a full-size grocery just a few more minutes away. If you have a car, there is easy street parking, and highway access in and out of the city is very straightforward.

The owner, Jon, was very friendly and concerned with our satisfaction. He quickly responded to a defective light bulb and showed us the error of our ways with the TV remote.

Without a doubt, we will look first to 32 Tungata when we return to Iceland

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

I brought two teenage grandchildren and my niece to vacation in Iceland and luckily found the perfect place. This house is spacious with room for everyone. The beds are very comfortable, a real plus for a grandmother. The location could not be better - an easy walk to downtown Reykjavik, and an hours drive to most attractions. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked all our breakfasts and several dinners there. Our landlord is both gracious and kind. He called the rental car company for us when we had a problem with the car. And he was immediately available to answer any questions. The house is on a street with many international embassies. All of Iceland feels very safe, and so does this house. I highly recommend it.

Excellent location and great house for a group

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at 32 Tungata. It is situated just a few blocks from the downtown area on a quiet street near many embassy's. It was a very short walk to restaurants, grocery stores and the harbor, yet quiet and peaceful. We were a group of 7 so the 4 bedroom home was perfect. The rooms are all very spacious and nice with a kitchen large enough for us. I was a bit worried about sharing bathrooms with so many of us, but the upstairs bathroom is huge with 2 shower heads so it was easy for our 5 European friends to share, leaving the spacious downstairs bath for just 2 of us. Jon was SO very nice and flexible and easy to work with as we tried to pull together plans from two different families from different countries. I can highly recommend Tungata 32.

Beautiful Home in a Beautiful City

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in Reykjavik . The house was spotless and ready for our family's stay. It is within walking distance of excellent restaurants and shops. We did not rent a car and were able to see all of Reykjavik via organized bus tours and using the Skybus. We will definitely be returning to Reykjavik and loved staying at Jón's beautiful property.
