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.

Nice, clean and relaxing apartment.

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters and I had a great visit. Apartment is in a good location - close to center, but in a quiet neighborhood. Apartment was large and clean. It was easy to find parking on the street. Owner was friendly and helpful. A couple minor suggestions- I would have liked more kitchen knives for food prep and the gas tank for the outside grill was empty. Overall, I can recommend and we would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hi Chris. Thank you for your kind words. I wish you had let me know about the gas, I would have replaced immediately, I had an extra one in the garage. I´m happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay.

Convenient Location, Comfortable and Warm

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is on the ground floor, is well equipped with comfortable seats and beds. The bed linen was of good quality and it was all very clean. The bathroom has the biggest 'bath' we have ever seen - which was also a double shower. The kitchen was well equipped with a large fridge/freezer, good oven and hob, lots of storage and plenty of crockery. Another saucepan or two would have been useful, as would a casserole/baking dishes and oven gloves, but we managed OK. The location was very good, we could easily reach the city centre and the main road north was handy too. We had no problem parking on the street outside. We were all very happy there.

Fantastic Place to stay close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

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

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!
