About Gudny

I have been living around the world for the past 16 years due to husbands work as a diplomat, in NYC, Beijing and London. We moved back to Reykjavik last year but bought our home in 2011 and rented it out while we were away. This year we bought this flat which is located on the lower ground floor in our house. We always miss our expat lifestyle while in Iceland and renting out to an international crowd is our way of continuing our expat life, although on a smaller scale.

Gudny purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Gudny chose Reykjavik

We love the neighbourhood. Although not right in the smack of downtown it's only 20 minutes walk to all major sights. For my family it's perfect, great schools, colleges and University of Iceland as well as Reykjavik University a short bus ride away. Klambratun green area is almost in the back garden. Numerous cafes and restaurants within 10 minutes walk from the house.

What makes this apartment unique

Again, we love the neighbourhood. We don't like to live out in the suburbs where you always need a car to get about. We like being able to walk and just leave the car at home! This house was build in 1943 and all the flats in the house were well designed, with spacious rooms and high ceilings. Although the flat is located on a lower ground floor it is very bright and cozy.

Excellent location for Rekjavik

  • 5 of 5

Large - very clean and comfortable.

Gudny was most friendly and helpful.

Don't want to say too many good things or it may be booked up when we next wish to return. We will be back and definitely would want to stay here again.

When in Iceland - take advantage of the luxury of having fresh fish daily. What a spectacular country! Gudny and her family reflect the good nature of the Icelandic people.

Wonderful Icelandic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful fit for our family of five on our Icelandic vacation. It was perfectly situated near downtown for walking and site seeing. It also provided easy access to get out of town for our many excursions. The apartment had everything you need for a perfect stay! Absolutely wonderful!!

Super stay close to center.

  • 4 of 5

Spent fantastic days in Reykjavik and rented this super cellar appartment with every kind of needed furniture and well equipped kitchen. WIFI super and the distance - 15 minutes to center Reykjavik - was very appropriate.

We can recommend strongly.

Amazing stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Gudny's beautiful apartment. Everything you could possibly need was available for us. There was a grocery store near by so we cooked most meals in the well equipped kitchen as eating out is quite expensive in Iceland. There were toys for the kids to play with and a trampoline in the back yard! The apartment was clean, comfortable and well located between downtown and an amazing swimming pool complex. Definitely would recommend this apartment to anyone!

Wonderfully clean and quiet apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of six and we stayed comfortably in this apartment! The place was very clean with a few items in the kitchen that we're greatly appreciated, such as coffee, sugar, etc. We loved that Netflix was available! The apartment is in a nice residential area with a couple of stores close by for quick groceries. Gudny was very responsive via email leading up to our stay as well as when we were there. We had such a great time visiting the Blue Lagoon and a few falls along the southern part of the country- we plan to return to explore some more!!

very nice and comfortable place

  • 4 of 5

Lovely flat, well situated in town.

well-equipped, with a small exception if you want to cook a lot by yourself, we were the first to do so. Gudny was there to help us out when a kitchen tool was missing.

Everything was fine and we felt ourselves very welcome and comfortable.

thanks very much!
