About Thorey Sigthorsdottir

I am an actress, voice coach and tour-guide. A typical Icelander that does has many various jobs. In the summer I enjoy looking at my beautiful country through the eyes of the visitor enjoying the possibility to see it over and over again with fresh look. In the winter time the arts take over my time. I work in the theatre or training people's skill. Both public speaking, the voice and theatre. I love personal development, theatre, yoga, traveling and swimming in the sea. I have just started re-training sea swimming. If you like that the perfect place to go is Nautholsvik, a free venue in the summer with yellow sandy beach, hot jacuzzy, sauna and good access to the sea. Partly a lagoon heated with geo-thermal water.

Thorey Sigthorsdottir purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Thorey Sigthorsdottir chose Norðurmýri

This apartment is so unique I fell in love with it since it has such a big character. Many different rooms reminded me of my years in London living in a typical British semi-detached house except this one is on the 2nd floor. A wonderful family house with a story. The last land-post had in Iceland had his farm here and his widow built the house after he died. Very near the city center, the street looking at the behind of Hallgrimskirkja church a lovely angle, making the street very grand. I live here with my 14 year old son and in the winter I have University students as tenants. When I am on the road taking tourists around Iceland in the summer I rent the apartment to tourists.

What makes this apartment unique

What is so great about this location is that is only 10-20 min walk away from the City Center but on the quiet side. There is a swimming pool just around the corner, nice restaurants nearby . All in walking distance. Easy bus connection in all direction. I chose to live here since from here I don't need to depend on the car to get around. I can walk, bike or take the bus wherever I need to. And I have private parking place for my car when I don't need it. That in this area is a luxury.

There are several food shops n walking distance as well as café's and restaurants.

Fantastic place for Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the studio. It was a great location on a quiet street in the city. Close enough for us to walk almost anywhere we wanted to go downtown and close to major roadways for our day trips. I would highly recommend for anyone wanting a nice, quiet place to stay while visiting Iceland!

Comfortable, quiet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights during the Iceland Airwaves musical festival. The apartment was small, but perfect for two people at a great rate by Reykjavik standards. It was easy walking distance to the city center and the venues for the festival, but tucked in a quiet neighborhood where it was easy to duck away from the revelry. Check in and out was easy, and the owner was very accommodating with our schedule which required a late departure.

Wonderful stay in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

This is a tremendously wonderful place to stay in Reykjavik. It is convenient to EVERYTHING! I hope that I can experience Iceland and Reykjavik again. And if I am lucky enough to dos so, I hope that this apartment is available. And if YOU are going to Reykjavik, get your trip off on the right foot by taking Flybus to the city, Thorey's apartment is also only a ten minute walk from the bus station. Great place to stay!

Good basic accommodation

  • 3 of 5

Unit is a converted garage but it was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owner was obliging and helpful. Great WiFi connection.

Unit is well located within easy walking distance of BSI bus station and many stores and restaurants.

Bed was comfortable but we found the pillows a little thin (two per person would be good).
