Perfect comfortable house for large group, excellent location and host
This is a wonderful house for a large group! Spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and very warm and inviting with everything you need for a great stay in the awesome city of Reykjavik. Helgi is an excellent and responsive host!
The location is fantastic and a short (10 minute) walk to the main shopping street (Laugavegur), Hallgrimskirkja Church, and Braud & Co. bakery (best cinnamon rolls and sourdough bread ever!) The neighborhood is beautiful, quiet and safe with plenty of street parking in addition to an off-street spot.
The other reviews have more details but here's a few tips and things to know prior to arrival:
-The entrance is on the side of the house, up a few short steps from the street (easy with luggage). We couldn't find an outside light so it was a little tricky to unlock the door.
-We brought slippers to wear and left our snowy boots/shoes in the foyer to keep the hardwood floors clean. The house is very warm but the windows can be opened and have wind-guards.
-The fireplace is decorative and the furniture is very stylish and comfortable. The linens are very good with warm duvets and plenty of towels.
-Two of the bathrooms are in the basement. One is en-suite and the other is the double shower with an adjacent half-bath (toilet/sink) next to the other bedroom. The showers do leak water onto the floor but there's a squeegee in the shower to handle the puddles. The doors are frosted glass but they're private. The sauna and hot tub/spa are awesome but the pipes make a loud noise when you fill the tub.
-There is only one bathroom on the second floor, attached to the master bedroom and has a lockable hallway door. The bathroom is very large with double sinks and has a nice shower and separate tub. The closet in the master is very large with a full-length mirror and ample storage.
-There is a another large bedroom on the second floor, along with a small den that has a comfy couch (blue couch in the pictures) and large TV.
-The attic level is accessed by a frosted glass circular staircase. It's easy to access even with luggage and is a nice, private space for a couple.
Our group of 8 loved the house and look forward to staying there again. Helgi was so nice and accommodating and we had a terrific Christmas in Iceland thanks to his hospitality. Book now - don't wait!
An absolutely stunning home, which was perfectly located for us to explore all that Reykjavík had to offer.
There were ten of us and we had plenty of space. Comfortable beds and all the creature comforts.
Great communication from the hosts and thoroughly recommended!
Amazing property. Exceeded expectations. The rooms were great/clean. Amazing living room. Perfect location (close walk to town and bus stop). Would stay here again if I needed a place with 8+beds.
Great house near downtown Reykjavik
We had a wonderful stay during our time in Reykjavik! There were six of us in the group and the house was large enough so everyone could spread out. It's ideally located in a residential area and is a 15-20 minute walk into the downtown center. We saved a ton of money by cooking meals in some nights. The washer and dryer were also super convenient, as we didn't have to pack as many clothes for our trip. The hot tub and sauna got rave reviews from everyone. Same comment as other reviewers about the water from the shower spilling out onto the bathroom floors. That was the only annoyance during our stay. Hosts responded quickly and were very courteous. Would highly recommend this house!
The Villa is located in a high end residential street just 300 meters walk from the shopping streets and resturant area off down town Reykjavik
