Overview

About the property

Self-catering downtown central Reykjavik apartment

Large 3 bedroom Reykjavik apartment in the heart of the city for family holidays or romantic get aways. Walking distance to most everything in Reykjavik. The apartment is 1.5 blocks to main shopping, cafe, restaurant, gallery street and 2.5 blocks from shoreline, but on a quiet street just steps to the action. Plenty of space for a family to spread out and eat in. Located so that you can walk out for a pizza or a romantic dinner near by. The apartment has 3 bedrooms that can sleep 6 people in beds and we can provide a floor mattress for additional travellers. There are 2 couches that children can easily sleep on too. We offer a home like environment which appeals to travellers who do not like cold hotel environments. This is our family home when we are in Reykjavik and offer it to our guests when we are away for most of the year. A playground around the corner for the kids. The kitchen is equipped for cooking full meals. There is a full dining and kitchen table for meals. We have a parking spot in front of the apartment. And just a few minutes out of the city you have all the great nature that Iceland has to offer.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed our apartment. We do have an electric kettle in the kitchen cabinet. After several guests burned through a number of stove top kettles, we went electric for safety reasons. I am so sorry you did not find the electric kettle. Thanks for staying with us.

Great place in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved this rental. It was well equipped, clean, quiet and within walking distance to nearly everything. It gave us room to hang out without being on top of each other when we were there, and made enjoying Reykjavik easy. Brian was very responsive to questions we had during our stay. The parking spot was nice to have for our rental car.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Seven us visited Iceland to run the Marathon in mid- August. The location was perfect and in the heart of downtown Reykjavik. There was an available parking space for our car which was very convenient. The apartment was the perfect size for the seven of us. We'd definitely return.

Great value in center of Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

Nice to have the space to spread out in living/dining room. Three bedrooms were super. Was a great value to stay for four days for a wedding. Brian was an excellent communicator. Anything we needed help with he made good on.
