The Guesthouse which sleeps four is by the sea front in the old center of town.
This contemporary house/villa is in a quiet residential area in the centre of Reykjavík built in 2002 and designed by its architect owner. The part being rented out is a detached, i.e. separate guest house. The villa is located within 70 meters from the seafront and only 15 minutes walk from the bustling center where you will find The National Theatre, the main museums, art galleries, cinemas, coffee houses, restaurants, bars and the main shopping streets. The bustling center (Miðbær) is a 3 min bus ride away from the house but the bus stop is within 2 min walking distance from the house. The guest house is 76 m2 and is ideal for a couple or a family of four. The location offers fantastic walking and cycling routes along the sea front. Within 15 minutes walk away there is a geothermal heated beach as well as swimming pools. Free parking outside of the house and final cleaning, internet, linen and towels are included in the price.

It was a wonderful stay. Any problems were solved quickly. Thank you!
Quiet and Clean
Very nice and comfortable place a short drive to the local swimming pool and downtown. Owners very accommodating to our earlier than expected arrival.Would stay again if ever going through Iceland.
A beautiful property a few steps away from the sea
The property was ultra clean, nicely decorated and ample room for a family of four with 2 teenage boys....the quilts were so warm and snuggly!. It is about half hour walk to the town, but a stones throw to the sea and beautiful views. We were extremely unlucky with the weather, with snow storms for 2 days (February) but our hosts were very kind in offering us lifts into town and to the other attractions nearby, outdoor thermal swimming pools. There is a very tasty burger bar just on the corner near the property and a small supermarket about 15 mins away. The bus stop is at the top of the road, easy to get into Reykjavik if you don’t fancy walking, and our airport transfer dropped us st the domestic airport about 15 mins walk away......most trips will pick up there too. In summary, would highly recommend for a family spending several days sightseeing
Lovely Guesthouse in Reykjavik
Gudrun was very accommodating and provided everything we needed for our stay.
The guesthouse is furnished with a great kitchen, kingsize bed and large space. Quiet location, provides a relaxed stay and is close to everything. I would stay again and recommend to anyone traveling to Reykjavik.
Perfect place for a week in Iceland!
This was our first experience using HomeAway and found that Gudrun's property fit our needs perfectly for the week we stayed here...it was the perfect size for a couple, very homey and comfortable - close to downtown yet far enough away that it was very quiet and peaceful (even saw the northern lights one night over the guesthouse). It was a great home base for our day trips throughout Iceland. We loved being able to have the flexibility to cook at home as eating out was expensive. It was well equipped with plates/cups/few pots/frying pan and utensils...there's a coffee pot as well as tea pot. Small fridge and stove/oven. There were basic spices, oils and other odds and ends in the drawers. You do need to buy paper products.
The wi-fi worked great. We stayed in one snowy/windy night and watched Netflix on our laptop (no tv) with no buffering.
There is a washing machine (and detergent on shelf above) - and a drying rack (no dryer) which came in handy during the week.
We didn't really see/talk with Gudrun as we were always out but she had left a list of recommendations re: grocery stores, take away restaurants, swimming pools...
We would definitely book this property should we visit Iceland again.
Thank you Gudrun!
great location,all the amenities you need and very comfortable.
Definately stay here again. Location was great for day trips in the area. Also very Close to downtown area. Loved the path along the water to run or walk.
