My place is close to the city centre, parks w/ great views. It is good for couples and families. Only 7-10 min. driving distance to downtown Reykjavik, although it is very quiet area and footsteps from the seaside. Beautiful surroundings and walking space, children´s playing area. Close to supermarkets, restaurants and all services. The apartment is in a private villa w/private entrance and free parking. Baby cot available.
“We had a wonderful stay and would absolutely stay here again. I liked that the bedrooms were off at the opposite end of the apartment so people staying up later in the living room didn’t disturb those resting. Everything was clean and very well organized and the hosts were very accessible for any questions or concerns. They also respected your privacy and it’s possible not to interact with them at all if you prefer. I like to meet people and Salome and her husband were sweethearts. They made a binder for guests with helpful information about restaurants, appliance instructions, check in and out procedures, etc. The apartment was ready several hours early and Salome emailed us to let us know, which was greatly appreciated after a red eye flight. The view of the waterfront was great to see at the end of a long day. There is an exercise/biking/walking trail literally 100 feet from the house and it goes along the length of the waterfront. Great for spying sea ducks like Common Eider, Long-tailed ducks, Mergansers, Eurasian Wigeons andIt’s a great spot to access all the tours. We just left our car at the BSI terminal (less than 10 minutes away) which had plenty of safe parking even for overnights and picked up all of our tours from there. The washer was a great bonus because we didn’t have to pack as much. I could have just packed one medium suitcase for the whole trip. There was toothpaste, dish soap, dishwasher soap, fridge and freezer with ice in it, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, paper towels, toilet paper, hair dryer, shaving cream, working appliances (nice coffee maker), plenty of pots and pans including all utensils needed for cooking, plug adapter, tons of maps and brochures about Iceland and tours, as well as a large TV that we actually never had a chance to watch. Our view was too pretty to bother with TV.”
Brand new and beautiful apartment (small house) for rental, with all the necessities. Quiet neighborhood. Free parking.
“Runa's place was exactly as described; it was extremely clean, modern, and spacious for a solo traveler. It had the basics but was spartan. There is a small grocery store just around the corner, a coffee/ burger place right around the corner, and a swimming pool across the street. To get to downtown, you can either walk 10 minutes up the hill to the Hamraborg stop or take the local bus from a block away up to that bus stop to catch the #1 to downtown. Walking to the Hamraborg stop, it takes about 20-25 minutes to get to downtown from the apartment. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit!”
Very clean, spacious and cosy apartment at the ground floor with private entrance and free private parking. Two bedrooms, one with electronically adjustable King size bed (200x200), the other bedroom with two brand new 80x200 size health beds (can be put side by side for couples). Both a bathtub and a shower in a very elegant bathroom with heated floor. Fully equipped kitchen and large living room and hallway. Just next to a great open green area. Nineteen times in a row a Superhost :)
“If you’re on the fence at all, just book it! Great location with some stunning views of the city and landscape waiting just around the corner. Kristín is a wonderful host who communicated very well throughout my stay! She offered great tips for activities and dining in Reykjavik. Her willingness to accommodate granted me peace of mind which allowed me to more thoroughly enjoy my trip despite the rise of the current pandemic! If I ever return to Iceland, I will surely book with her again! Thank you for offering your home up for such an amazing experience, Kristín!”
