We had a great expericence visiting Iceland, Erla was very helpful and generous. She made our stay very pleasant. The apartment is only a short walk from the center of the city. We hope to visit here again and would love to stay with Erla! Thank you

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend staying at this apartment, clean, tidy and spacious for a couple. We arrived just before new years and Erla was extremely helpful in telling us local places with activities and things to do in Reykjavik. Erla respected our privacy but was in an apartment next door and was easy to make contact with if any enquiry’s were needed. Our flight was delayed 5 hours and Erla stayed up until we arrived at the apartment, and was nice and polite despite the horrific delay we experienced due to fog at the airport. We were even offered a lift into the city centre the next day and were told of specific places that would be nice to see which made the experience even nicer.There is a local supermarket and a bus stop outside that apartment that takes you to Reykjavik city Centre. We sometimes walked to the city Centre which took around 25-30 minutes, it really Was not bad at all. As Iceland tours pick up within Reykjavik city Centre the apartment was not in the catchment area for this, however we were picked up from Radison blu hotel which is a 20 minute easy walk to the hotel from the apartment for our excursions. Although this apartment is not in the city Centre I would recommend staying, me and my partner had a brilliant time. Thank you Erla.

Cute, comfortable apt.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, well stocked apt. close to the city. just 5 min. drive away in a lovely neighborhood. It is an upstairs apt. The bus stop was very close. My Husband, Daughter and myself stayed here comfortably. close to a really nice local pool. Don't count so much on the washer and dryer. It was a bit confusing. And the curtains need to block out more of the sun. Erla was very nice and accessible. I would definitely stay here again

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for three days in the apartment and absolutely loved it. Not only was the kitchen well-stocked and the apartment very kept up overall, but it was also extremely quiet. It is right at the bus stop, so if you don't have a car this is a great location for you as well. It is at the top of a flight of stairs, however, so if you or anyone in your party has mobility issues just keep this in mind.

Erla was very flexible with our schedule, which was appreciated since we ran into some issues that day with our rental car, and she was kind enough to have some corn flakes and milk stocked for us in case we hadn't eaten yet upon arrival (which we hadn't and we were starving after our very long flight - thank you, Erla!). She also emailed me on one of the days to let me know that the Northern Lights were out, which was also very appreciated. Overall, I could not have been happier and look forward to staying here again on my next visit! :)

Superb Place & Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Erla's place for three nights and we absolutely loved it. The apartment is fully equipped, spacious, super clean and cozy, nothing really could have been better. On top, prior to our arrival, Erla gave us many great tips for one day trips outside the city. We'd definitely love to come back. I highly recommend Erla’s place for anyone taking a trip to Reykjavik!

Seltjarnarnes is an Icelandic village located within the Greater area of Reykjavik. It has around 4000 inhabitants but most of the people who lives here work in Reykjavik and seek most of their service there since the towns are grown together.

Close to apartment or within 10 minutes of walking you can find two thermal pools, grocery shop open 24 hours a day, pharmacy, library and other shops and on the other site of the road you can find a fish shop that sell fresh fish every day!
