About the property

Just Steps Away From Everything The City And Iceland Has To Offer To You

101 the heart of Reykjavik and Grettisgata 2 is in the middle of 101 here to enjoy what this city full of life has to offer all year around

Tastefully decorated 3 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment with all the amenities you might need during your visit.

2 bedrooms with queen-size beds and new innerspring mattresses and one bedroom with a French size Tempur mattress - French size because it is a over 200 year old bed frame made by my husband's great great great great grandfather so the size is 120*190 cm which is 4ft by 6ft4- so for a very close sleeping couple or one person.

It is an open plan apartment with a flat screen TV, DVD player.

The kitchen fully equipped with AEG appliances, has a Nespresso coffee machine ( although you need to bring your own capsules like Mr Clooney does as they do not sell capsules here in Iceland) there is also a teakettle, 4 bread toaster,

The teak dinning table seats 6.

You can also enjoy the garden.

The bathroom has a very big Italian shower and the laundry room is hidden behind the sliding doors. You will find towels and a hair dryer.

The apartment is registered for short term leasing. You are minutes away from the best bakery in Reykjavik and grocery shopping. Outdoor geothermal swimming pools are all over one is just 5 min away - the only indoor swimming pool in Reykjavik Sundhöllinn very vintage with outdoor jacuzzis - we love our pools. Many important decisions are made in Iceland's jacuzzis early in the morning as we love to go swimming before going to work.

The airport shuttle stops 15 feet from our front door. You can arrange for them to pick you up when you are going back home.

Non smoking, with a security system

Warm, cosy and feel just like home

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely and very center. Everything you could asked for. Very nice and spacious and cosy. It had all everything you would need,, fully furnished, tv, comfortable couch, 3 room, full kitchen, dining table, 2 fridges, kettle,... You would need to take anything with you.

I would highly recommended you rent this place. Its a hidden gem. If I go back to Reykjavik, I have no hesitations in renting this apartment again. Its credit to the owners on how they've kept this place in such a great condition.

Very enjoyable stay, Thanks Berglind and Luc

If you are looking for the PERFECT location in Reykjavik, this is it. Close enough to be in the restaurants and bars within 5 minutes, yet quiet enough once the action starts. Our family had an amazing vacation. This apartment is small and cozy, but warm, clean and comfortable. Very well appointed and everything we needed was ready for us. Owners very responsive and easy to work with.

The reviews are spot on

  • 3 of 5

The reviews for this stay are spot on, both negative and positive.

The positive - great location, overall the space was adequate/cozy-though not the size of the beds. Parking should not be listed as a feature for this stay. There is pay parking in the neighborhood which can get expensive. We lucked out and were able to park at the parking structure nearby for free since the ticketing system was out of order.

The negatives - our family of 5 did not sleep comfortably on the beds, two ended up sleeping on the couch which was just large enough. The temperature in the apt was too hot and there was not an easy way to turn that down- finally emailed the owner who was very prompt in getting back to me. LOUD does not do justice to the noise level from above(about one foot above my head when standing). Every footstep is felt as much as heard and a rolling suitcase is similar to a rumbling thunder. It did not help that one night our upstairs neighbors were up and continuously moving until 330am and a different tenet was up at 5am making noise until about 7am. A temporary fence, due to a construction site next door, resulted in a banging against the bedroom wall until I discovered the cause and went outside in the driving rain to relocate the fence.

Iceland is awesome(our second visit) and we spent as much time outside of the apartment as possible enjoying Reykjavik and the incredible natural wonders. I wish we did not have to sleep so that we could have chased the aurora more, but sleep/rest is necessary we were unfortunately not able to get much at this location.

Great home in great area

  • 5 of 5

The home was very cozy and had everything we needed for our stay. The owners gave us a lot of helpful information and emailed me back very quickly with responses to any question I had. I would definitely stay here again. She gave great advice especially buying things at the Duty Free store.

Owner's Response: Amazing guests. It does not happen very often that I arrive after our guests leave this time I did, and I have to say that I thought the cleaning ladies had already done their job. You are the ideal guests looking forward seeing you soon back in Iceland.

Nice apartment not guaranteed parking

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was fine but it should not list parking as one of features since he cannot guarantee a parking spot. That was very misleading.

Some many possibilities never enough time..... Go and see Eyjafjallajökull the volcano that blocked the world for a few days or go and see inside a volcano a unique experience. Snorkelling in the one of the cleanest waters in the World Silfurà. Horseback riding, visiting Snæfelsjökull where Jules Verne book ' Journey to the Center of the Earth' took place. Seeing whales in the morning, having lunch on the top of a Glacier ending the day playing Golf in the midnight sun.... Just a few ideas. So many things to do just a short drive away. In the city endless opportunities to keep busy. Museums, concert halls, theatres, restaurants, galleries, shops, swimming pools, coffee shops, .....did I mention shops..... Churches, a stroll on the Harbour where on weekends you can visit Kolaportið a local flee market where you can taste rotten shark an Icelandic delicatessen.
