Guestbook comments from the owner

Myself and 7 friends stayed at the town house for 5 days over NYE and it was perfect. The location was a 10 minute walk to all the bars, restaurants and the harbour. The house itself had everything and anything we needed, and it really felt like a home from home. Jenny was an amazing host and helped us arrange all of our excursions with no fuss and quick email replies, and often with cheaper prices than the tour companies were quoting us. Would go back and stay here again in a heartbeat. Couldn't recommend highly enough!

Great, everything we expected and more.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 8, coming and going at different times and this worked great with this property. There were three keys and three floors of space to spread out and either come together or have your own space. The front bedroom on top floor was awesome! The whole house was so cool and comfortable.

Fantastic and Cozy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this cozy little three story apartment. It is conveniently located near the water front, several grocery store and the bakery. Our gracious hosts left directions to every point of interest and guided us to everything we needed for our stay. The house was clean and well appointed with an exceptional downstairs bathroom with heated floors. The upstairs bedrooms were very comfortable and both of my children loved their rooms. The owners kept in touch with us from the beginning and were very accommodating to our sliding schedule. They even stopped in one evening and gave us a great book on Iceland! We highly recommend staying here, you can't go wrong - we will be back.

Fantastic Experience, highly recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic experience renting from Jenny! She was very attentive and responded to any questions very promptly and came over within 5 minutes when we thought we had an internet issue at the house. She also went above and beyond when I needed help with getting a temporary passport which was extremely kind and helpful. Additionally, we were able to check in early since our flight landed at 6:00 AM.

The bathroom was very nice with heated floors and a wonderful shower. Everything was heated to perfection and the house was stocked with laundry detergent, dish washing soap, spices, tea, coffee, etc. to make it seem like home. A++++, wonderful experience!

Would definitely stay there again!
