I loved staying in this cozy little apartment in a very beautiful location! Erla was very helpful getting me settled in after my early-morning arrival, she was always there when I needed help or advice, and she even helped me order a pizza one evening when I was too tired to venture out again for food! The fridge was stocked with essentials when I arrived, parking was a breeze, and everything was just fabulous! Would definitely stay here again!

Exceptional Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Erla's appartment proved ideal for our stay in Iceland. My daughter and I were made to feel completely at home but given our privacy. It is a lovely apartment with everything you could want for a stay away and easy to find and park. Just 5 minutes into Reykjavik (seriously!). Lovely and clean too! Erla was so kind, providing us with essentials to eat on arrival. There is a beautiful lake just behind the building too. Cannot recommend this apartment highly enough! thank you, Erla.

The best experience

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO for travel accommodations for many years and while each experience has been uniquely wonderful, our stay here has been one of the best. We felt as if we were honored guests in Erla's home. She anticipated our every need from providing provisions for our early morning arrival to making sure we were comfortable in our lodging. The apartment itself was comfortable and clean. The kitchen and bath were well appointed, with everything a traveler needs. Sinking in to the bed after a day in the countryside was a restful pleasure. We really only needed to show up with a change of clothes and our toothbrushes.I highly recommend this apartment and would return to it again. It is a great home base from which to explore Iceland.

This apartment was very cozy and the perfect place to back to after long days of exploring. Erla was very welcoming, providing us with staples to make snacks upon our arrival which was very welcome after a long flights! Lots of basics were present to make our stay more comfortable as well. It was lovely and we would both stay again and recommend to anyone travelling to Iceland!!

We loved the apartment - plenty of space, lovely decor, and everything you need including a well supplied kitchen, a wash machine, and very comfortable bed. The location is easy too - walkable to downtown Reykjavik and if you have a car it's a quick drive thru town. Grocery store is just a few blocks away. Erla is a gem and went far above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. She is a most gracious host, even providing some groceries in the frig, which was really nice after a long plane ride! I can't think of any downside to this place - it's just great.
