About Gudny

I have been living around the world for the past 16 years due to husbands work in NYC, Beijing and London. We always miss our expat lifestyle while in Iceland and meeting 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.

Fantastic Place to stay close to downtown

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

The flat rented to us was in Immaculate condition with all of the necessities provided, including a few extra creature comforts. It was a very relaxing place to stay, slightly off the beaten path and a few minutes walk to downtown. A small book was also provided with all of the relevant information a foreign traveler could have asked for.

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay during our trip to Iceland!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Johanna and Gudny's place was perfectly located. We walked everywhere and for airport transportation/tours there's a hotel not 5 minutes away. The apartment was spacious and the kitchen was fully stocked. This was my first time renting and they could not have been better answering all my questions and responding to my inquiries. If I come back to Iceland I hope their apartment is available!

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.

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.

Family Bjornsbo, Denamrk.
