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!

Fabulous Stay, Amazing Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Right from our enquiries, our hosts were responsive, thoughtful, reassuring in a country we have never visited. We were bagged after our flight and hitting the Blue Lagoon and wanted to check in early and couldn't believe how accommodating our hosts were. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we will be back, next time with the entire family! You have a gorgeous home, are extremely friendly but not intrusive and I just can't say enough about how much we appreciated your hospitality. As well, the place easily sleeps 2 adults + 2 children with a pullout bed. Very comfortable and homey feel! Thank you! Jonathan and Laura - Canada

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying here. ~20 minute walk to downtown, ~5 minute walk to 24 hour grocery store, in a quiet less busy neighborhood. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to feel at home. On the pleasantly smaller side so I would say maximum 2 people for everyone to be comfortable. G

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!
