This beautiful property has 2 apartments, and it is located in a very good, high standard neighbourhood. Very quiet and safe.
Apartment A is for 5 people max.
Apartment B for 2 people. (studio).
These cosy apartments are on ground floor, located in a beautiful area in the city, and has amazing view. And only few minutes drive to the downtown Reykjavík, city center.
This house-unit is in the end of a short street(new, since 2009) in a very nice and quiet neighborhood, although it is a short disstance to all that you need.
A mini market is only 5 minutes walk. Super-market is near by, and big outdoor swimmingpool is only 3-4 minutes walk. Bus stop is in the same street, so public transport are very easy.
Excellent accommodation for a family up to 5 in Apartment A.
And perfect private acomodation for couples in Apartment B
Both apartments has a private veranda with a BBQ, and a private entrance. The house and surrounding is
very safe, and you will feel like home:)
The beautiful and extraordinarily outdoor swimmingpool
(the Grafarvogslaug) is only few steps away. It only takes you 3-4 minutes to walk. It is really fantastic to end a long day of travelling, in one of the hot tubs there, real treat!
First of all, want to praise the owner of this apartment for flexibility and for the excellent communication, always replying any enquiry very fast! Helena was so kind to let us do the check in early and also for accepting the payment in pounds, saving us some money! The caretaker who opened the apartment for us and gave us all the tips, were very kind and friendly! The apartment was comfortable and big enough for 3 adults and 2 children! The beds were extremely comfortable, even the sofa bed where my two children slept! The living area and the bathroom were also quite spacious! The kitchen area was not so big, but enough for quick and simple meals! We loved to be out of the town in a tranquil surrounding and close to the public hot pools! We also loved to always return to a warm place! I regret that I can not give 5 stars and the only reason is that we didn't get the apartment clean enough; it did lack hygiene! Maybe this was because there was not enough time to get it clean before our arrival! I'm not sure! But I did clean it as I would like to have found it and left it clean also on our departure, despite having paid cleaning fee! But for everything else, it was great!
My family and I stayed in Iceland for two weeks. The first day we arrived in the afternoon, and had nothing for dinner og ready for breakfast the next day. The owner was very sweet and she immediately offered to drive us in her own car to the nearst shop to buy food. She lived very close, and was always very helpful in explaining places to go, what to see, what to think about and so on.
The apartment is at the edge of the capital area, so Reykjavik downtown and most shops were a little far away. Since I have lived in Iceland as a child and speak some Icelandic, getting around with bus was not so compliceted. And the bus system works fine, once you know where to go. But otherwise renting a car would be a good option.
Although the apartment was a little far away from everything, some shops and restaurants were 25 minutes walking distance away, once we found the route with a google search. The owner was always helpful though.
One of the best things was the nearby out doors swimming pool area, which are very popular in Iceland and very cheap (hot water is very cheap on this volcanic island). There are many of these in Iceland, and the one closest to us was a 5 minutes walk away. I have been to many in Iceland, and this one was very good, with swimming lanes, childrens pools and stuff, and of course the famous hot tubs: Small pools with benches in them, and very hot water. We went there every or every other day, just to sit and relax and melt in the delicious hot water.
The apartment itself was a little simple, but just fine, with kitchen stuff and so on.There was a TV (which we didn't use I think) and free internet. It was all okay with what we needed. Right out the door we had a lovely view of the mountains, and the neighborhood was very quiet and nice. We went there with our one-year-old son, and happily let him sleep outside in the stroller.
I would highly recommend this place for at small family looking for a simple but nice apartment in a quiet area on the outskirts of Reykjavik. And when we come to Iceland again, I would definately consider this place again.
And if you come to Iceland, remember to bring swimming clothes and buy some local chocolate.
We had a lovely stay at this apartment! We were able to easily find the apartment and were warmly greeted and shown around. We booked "Apartment A" and it was superbly clean, and more than spacious enough for the three of us (we could definitely see 5 people staying here comfortably). We loved the quiet neighbourhood, the rolling field of flowers in the backyard, the view into the city, and its proximity to the N1 gas station, and the nearby Korputorg Bonus. There is a walking trail way behind the field of flowers that could definitely be of use for people who take their morning jogs seriously--even on vacation.
We were there in the summer, so even with the extended daylight (20+ hours a day) we were still able to get a good night's sleep thanks to the thick curtains. The wifi was great and easy to connect to. We also enjoyed the tv on our down time late at night.
We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Iceland. Thank you for your lovely apartment!

Es war der absolute Wahnsinn!
Montags um 23 Uhr erfuhr ich, dass ich beruflich am nächsten Morgen nach Reykjavik muss.
In der Nacht mit der Vermieterin gemailt - alles klar, ich kann direkt vorbei kommen. Super!
Vor Ort haben die Vermieter uns dann so was von selbstlos geholfen: Kontakte hergestellt, kostenlosen Fremdenführer organisiert, auf JEDEN Wunsch eingegangen.
Vor Ort gibt es eine Verwalterin, die direkt nebenan wohnt - auch sie war unglaublich freundlich und hilfsbereit! Kein Klopapier mehr da? Kein Thema - sie half privat aus. Wäsche wachen? Logisch - wir durften kostenlos ihre Waschmaschine und ihren Trockner benutzen. Weg zeigen? Kein Problem - sie setzte sich in ihr Auto und fuhr einfach vor!
Ich bin beruflich wirklich sehr viel auf der Welt unterwegs - aber so unfassbar freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieter habe ich noch nie getroffen! Man fühlt sich direkt wie zu Hause...
Zur Wohnung: Etwas außerhalb von Reykjavik, ca. 10 Minuten mit dem Auto oder 4600 Kronen mit dem Taxi bis zum Zentrum.
Sehr gemütlich, modern eingerichtet, ruhig gelegen.
Ein Highlight sicherlich der Garten mit dem Gas-BBQ. Alles sehr sauber, die Betten total bequem - einfach top für 2-3 Personen.
Mit mehreren würde ich dort allerdings dann aber auch nicht wohnen, weil zwei sonst auf der Ausziehcouch im Wohnzimmer schlafen müssten.
In der direkten Umgebung gibt es einen Supermarkt, eine KFC-Filiale, eine Tankstelle, eine Wäscherei, ein tolles Fitnesscenter (leider mit 2400 Kronen pro Tag ziemlich teuer), ein Kino, eine Sportbar und eine Fußballhalle.
Fazit: Wenn mal wieder Reykjavik- dann in diese Wohnung!!!
Great location, only 8-10 minutes drive to city center. Bus transportation is very good, bus stop is 100 m away from the apartment. Super-market is near by.
Spectacular views of the city, many exciting things to visti in the area, good neighborhood for kids to play outside.
Egilsholl, the biggest sports hall in Iceland is in the neighborhood.
A good training station : www.worldclass.is
An ice skating hall, and many other activities.
There is also a cinema and bowling alley in Egilsholl.
