Location, Ease and Comfort

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Location:

The apartment is two blocks up from the waterfront (great route for a walk/run) and two blocks down from a main restaurant/shopping street. Because it is so close some of the tourist transport options will pick you up there even though it is not one of the official hotel stops. Please verify as it is NOT guaranteed.

Ease:

I had absolutely no difficulty with any of the logistics of booking the property, accessing the property or with the closing of the reservation. Margret was very responsive, helpful and efficient. The property was easy to find on maps. Because we got out of the airport so quickly we arrived at the property 30 minutes early. We were able to contact Margret in route and we were met at the apartment 30 minutes early and were let in. I am so impressed at the flexibility and responsiveness! And it was nice to have someone personally orient us to the apartment even though there was nothing really complicated.

Comfort:

Everything is as described in the VRBO posting. We had four people, two in one room, one in the other room and one on the sofa bed; all of us slept well. The kitchen is fully equipped and with grocery stores a short walk away we were able to save a little money on food. There are several places to gather - the front room with the amazing view, the dining table or the TV room and all were accommodated the four of us with ease.

I have stayed at several VRBO properties in different countries and I would rank this among the best. Sometimes I worry about not staying in a hotel when I am in a foreign country but Iceland itself, especially Reykjavik, is very gentle in that regard. And the apartment and quality of care provided by Margret gave me the same comfort of having hotel staff available.

NYE in Reykajvik

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Traveled to Reykajvik over the New Years Eve holiday and it did not disappoint.

The location of the apartment was top notch, less than a 5 minute walk to the main shopping street and about a 10minute walk down to the city square area.

We called when we landed at the airport and got our luggage and through customs. The hosts met us upon arrival to let us into the garage and show us the parking space we could use. We were escorted up to the apartment and shown how to use everything and given good directions on where we could go shopping, dining, and tips to enjoy anything else we wanted to do on our stay.

The apartment was spacious enough for 4 adults and a small child. The apartment was modern and comfortable. The heated floors in the bathrooms made me wish I had them at home.

Overall, it was a great stay and were very glad we chose this place and it was available!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

2 couples, had a great 3 nights in Reykjavik at this beautiful condo. 2 BR/2 Ba was perfect for us. Near the harbor, a garage for the car, fully stocked kitchen with plenty of dishes, etc., for cooking breakfast in before going off to explore. Would definitely stay here again!!!

Spacious modern view apartment conveniently located to main shopping and restaurant areas of town.

  • 5 of 5

The listing description is quite accurate and the apartment was very clean and well maintained. We were met on time by the owner's rep who took sufficient time to explain the property details. The location of the apartment is wonderful----the main shopping and restaurant areas are a couple of easy walking blocks away. We found good spots to eat by simply checking out menus and atmosphere during our walking about. The view of the water is also a definite plus.

Because the apartment is new, if anything it feels a bit "sterile", and a couple of comfortable chairs and area floor coverings would improve that. It would also be nice to have a few extra towels, blankets and pillows available. Kitchen condiments, glasses and utensils are sufficient.

Iceland visitors should be prepared for rain and wind as a given-----at least in September------ with sun to be cherished when it occurs! Also recommended is a cell phone that works with local numbers. Specifically, you need to call for a FlyBus return pickup to the airport the day before departure. If in a hotel, staff can assist with that, but being on your own in a VRBO unit requires either a phone or a helpful local citizen!

The Iceland countryside is amazing, with rugged landscape, thermal activity and waterfalls all around. Margret kindly provided some helpful sightseeing suggestions and we also used the Lonely Planet guide book. We took the Golden Circle tour with Iceland Horizons, a 14 seat max van that was just great. We very much enjoyed our 3-day stopover visit and would absolutely recommend Margret's apartment as a fine home base to use during your own Iceland adventure.

My friends and I really enjoyed staying at this property and Margaret the owner was very accommodating when we asked for a late checkout.

Beautiful modern apartment with a view in a perfect location in town. The apartment complex is safe, quiet and very clean. I'd stay again or recommend it to anyone.

Very lovely apartment in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and another couple really enjoyed staying in Margret's apartment in central Reykjavik!! Having a bedroom and bathroom in separate parts of the apartment is a great set up for two couples. The apartment is clean and bright with a great view over the water to the mountains. The kitchen is great to prepare your own meals and it's wonderful having a garage space for the rental car. We would highly recommend to all!!!

As an added benefit, Margret is a great source of information and very responsive to email inquiries.

Reykjavik is a lovely, walkable city and this apartment is a perfect base to explore both the city and the beautiful country of Iceland.
