Great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 9-month son, and I stayed at this centrally located apartment. The owner provided us a crib and high chair. The apartment was clean and quiet, and we appreciated the covered garage spot. We enjoyed cooking our own meals and walking to the busy downtown streets. We highly recommend this apartment!

Family of Travelers

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this charming apartment! It is close to the downtown, but in a quiet neighborhood. We appreciated the washer/dryer after a week in London and enjoyed cooking our own meals each day. There is secure parking if you have a rental car and the owners are quick to respond to questions. My daughters liked the sleeper sofa and especially the WIFI connection. We also used the gas grill on the deck two nights which was a nice touch. It would be a nice touch to have a small instruction manual for the appliances, WIFI connection, and directions to nearby recommended restaurants, shops, or bakeries. Super stay in a super apartment! Thanks Gudbjorg, Kristin, and Magni!

Family with Teenager in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean and the the location was excellent as advertised. It was great to have convenient parking, and to also be close enough to the center of town not to have to drive to many attractions and restuarants. The apartment had everything you would need, including a dishwasher, washer and dryer, and ample coffee- and tea-making supplies. Since we came in the summer when it was not getting dark, another great feature was good blinds on all of the windows. My teenager reported the sofa sleeper was comfortable. And, he was happy with the great wifi he got in the apartment so he could keep up with his digital life! But, perhaps best of all was the owner picking us up from our long overnight flight, showing us around town, and making sure we got safely to our destination (we were able to walk to pick up a rental car later in the trip, saving money). I would recommend this rental to anyone who can handle some stairs.

Ideal Place to Stay in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay for 1-2 singles or 2 couples, with or without a car, wishing to see Iceland and Reykjavik. The apartment is bright, clean and modern and well appointed, with dish washer, microwave, stove, fridge, washing machine and dryer and big dining room table. The south facing veranda is a great place to sit and the sofa bed very comfortable to sleep on. It is ideally situated in the centre of Reykjavik, close to 2 supermarkets ( Bonus and 1011) and within easy walking distance of most of Reykjavik attractions. It is next door to a hotel where all the tour companies do a pick up so was ideal as a base for day tours and a lift to or from the airport.

Kirstin and Magni were helpful and kind hosts, even before we booked, and went out of their way to make us very welcome.

We had a great holiday and the convenient, bright clean apartment with our hosts welcome contributed greatly to it.

Only suggestion is instructions for the washer and dryer in English would be helpful as we couldn't translate the dials.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful apartment! It is perfectly located; well-stocked; perfectly sized; and the owners are amazingly nice! They have WiFi, TV, a washer/dryer, a dishwasher, and a comfortable bed. The garage - if you rent a car - is also clutch during the winter. The location is perfect - within walking distance of shops, restaurants, sites, a few grocery stores. Again, we could not have asked for a better place to stay over New Years. I highly recommend as it is just as described, nicely located and the owners are greatly helpful. I would DEFINITELY rent here again!! Thanks!!
