A great apartment, with a very responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

The apartment and owner Jenny Holmsteinsdottir are first class. The apartment is spacious, clean, nicely appointed, and perfectly located close to the attractions and shopping, but quiet and comfortable when you need a rest. We walked everywhere except to the National Museum and we could have walked there with more time.

Jenny is very responsive, understanding, and helpful. She is also dedicated to your enjoyment of Reykjavik and Iceland. We recommend the apartment to anyone traveling to Reykjavik. You can't go wrong.

A great place to stay while in Iceland!

  • 5 of 5

The overall accommodations are great! Jenny (the owner) is also wonderful, highly responsive and easy to work with! The location is very close to main attractions and located perfectly in the city center. The garage parking is also a plus!!! If you are considering a place while in Reykjavik, stay with Jenny- you will love it!!

Beautiful, spacious, clean apartment centrally located in Reykjavik!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for more. Jenny was communicative, friendly, and clear about her apartment and its many benefits and we found everything to be more than true when we rented it - it was truly a 'home away from home'. Additionally, she was very helpful in adjusting some timing so we could handle changed plans easily, and we both felt that renting this apartment was by far the best accommodation we chose on our Iceland holiday. The pickup spot for all our tours was literally around the corner, the cab stand was half a block down and across the street, and restaurants and shopping were all right there - and yet the accommodation was very quiet, and slightly out of the central hub of tourism, which meant no noise at night What more could we hope for? Very, very highly recommended! Would we rent from her/this place again? Yes, in a heartbeat!

Convenient and beautiful flat

  • 5 of 5

The flat was perfect for our short stay in Iceland. It was equipped with everything we needed. Jenny was very helpful and had very good information. If we come back to Iceland, we'll definitely stay here again.

Everything was just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was cosy, clean and very well equipped. The description was absolutely right. Free Wifi provided the needed information and enhanced our luck to see the Northern Lights. The included garage was nice to have, especially in wintertime. The apartment has a great central position which offers an easy walk to Reykjavik´s attractions.

Jenny was very helpful and provided a lot of information beforehand as well as in the apartment.
