Modern and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a delightful stay at this beautifully appointed home. This modern home is warm, welcoming, and cozy! The owner was gracious enough to help us with issues of a delayed wedding dress shipment, which had he and his wife fielding several call and emails to get it through customs. We appreciate that they went above and beyond their duties as host! Overall it was a great experience!

Great Location, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The apartment is in a great location. Only about a seven minute walk from Old Town.

Every thing was beautifully decorated and in great condition. The apartment has a dishwasher and a washer/dryer. There are two bedrooms; one with a full size bed and one with bunk beds. This was a little odd for us since we were traveling as two couples, but we made it work. I would absolutely stay at this apartment again.

Hidden Gem in the Heart of Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

This hidden gem is located just a few minutes walk from the city center of Reykjavik and the nearby harbor. It is located in a quiet residential area, that has close access to grocery stores, a bakery and other amenities. If you are looking for a genuine non-tourist experience, this is the perfect place. Besides the amazing location, this Flat has a warm modern interior and is equipped with everything you need. The owners also run a car rental shop and offer this service to their guests. The car was dropped off to us at the Flat which was really convenient. Street parking is readily available in front of the Flat. The rates are below market for Reykjavik which makes it very affordable. Our car was awesome, it was a brand new Opal, and we used it to explore the Snaefellsness Penninsula & Southern Iceland. We had an amazing experience with this Flat, and the owners are awesome. We will definitely be returning and renting this Flat again.

Fantastic Location and Facilities

  • 5 of 5

Location of the apartment is excellent for touring both Reykjavik and Golden Circle as easily accessible. The apartment is well equipped with comfortable beds and everything you could want from a modern apartment ( including under floor heating). The apartment also has a drawer full of exciting off the beaten track tourist visits which made our stay even more memorable. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone, It truly made our stay an excellent one !!

Great place to stay in Iceland!

  • 5 of 5

After booking our trip to Iceland, I felt that an apt would be a much better choice than a hotel, so searched out only the newest and modern 2 bedroom apt that I could find.

Once I found this apartment, the experience with the owners and the apartment itself has been a joy! Laufey and her husband Helgi were amazing and easy to deal with, both in the reservation process as well as the payment (which by far was the best deal in the heart of Reykjavik)! Not only did they communicate promptly, but Helgi picked us up and dropped us off at the bus station and kindly carried our luggage!

The apartment was perfect in every way! Easy walking distance to the center of town, as well as all the tourist attractions and grocery store! The kitchen/bathroom/living room and bedrooms were the right size for a 6 day visit and all the floors are heated, which makes slippers unnecessary! The only down side was the heat because it is controlled remotely, but once I contacted Laufey about the temp being too high, she immediately lowered it (but it takes hours to cool off, unless you open the front door).

Iceland exceeded my expectations in safety, friendliness of the people and things to do! I will definitely come back and will rent the exact same apartment with my husband!

My only suggestion to people planning a trip to Iceland in the winter is that when they say layer, it means layer in the pleural! I cross country ski and thought I was prepared for the cold with what I had packed...Unfortunately, I still needed to buy a pair of wind blocking pants and ended up wearing 3 pairs of leggings, 4 shirts and a sweater, 2 hats, 1 face mask and 2 pairs of gloves, one definitely being mittens!

I would definitely recommend this apartment for anyone that wants either a short or long term, unbelievable adventure in Iceland!

Nice apartment close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Nice modern apartment, 5 minutes walk from downtown and the harbor. The owners were super helpful, meeting us at the bus station at 1am and giving us a quick tour before dropping us at the apartment. They also had great advice on which tour operators to use and how to get to the closest pickup point for the shuttle buses (also a 5 minute walk away).
