The Space

The room is nice and clean with a double bed. Perfect for one person or a couple. Also a desk and a closet for all your luggage. I live in the apartment and you can have access to everything including a stylish bathroom with a tub and a shower. Brand new kitchen with everything you can think off. Living room with big flat screen and a DVD, BluRay and multimedia player. Free WiFi and breakfast for a small fee. You are also very welcome to use the kitchen yourself and keep your own food in the fridge and of course. clean up after yourself. Washing machine and dryer witch you can also use if you like.

The apartment is located in a quiet area in the Fossvogur Valley, (Fossvogsdalur) beetween Kopavogur and Reykjavik - only 3 minutes walk to Reykjavik. About 60 minutes walk to Reykjavik downtown - 20 minutes by bicycles, 25 minutes by bus and 10 minutes by car.
There is a stunning view from the apartment as you can see in the pictures. There is just a few minutes walk to a bus stop that takes you downtown. It is a forest area with good shelter from the ocean breeze. I have a very nice balcony with trees, plants, fireplace and BBQ were you can enjoy the fresh air and the warm Icelandic summer.

There are supermarkets, banks and restaurants/pizzerias with in walking distance. Also walking or cycling paths in all directions, since the room is centrally located. You can even borrow bicycles from me if you like. Public swimming pools are nearby, about 5 minutes drive.

I have two small dogs. They are very friendly and loving. They love to have people over and go for a walk.

Enjoy the quiet area, no traffic streets nearby and wake up to the sound of singing birds.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My Boyfriend and me stayed here for 9 nights an we really enjoyed the time with Björn and his cute little dogs Perla and Prince. Björn was a friendly and caring host. He picked us up and dropped us at the airport for a fair price. He told us a lot about icelandic culture, traditions and politics. We even could use his two bikes for the whole time and enjoyed the ride of half an hour to the city centre through a beautiful valley. We strongly recommend to stay at his house in reykjavik.

  • Bjorn is the most excellent host you could wish for in Iceland. I had never been before - he was able to pick me up and drop me off at the airport. He was able to give me a car tour of the city and show me the best route to take for the bus. The two dogs are delightful, the coffee is excellent and I can highly recommend!

  • My mom and I had a great time in Iceland and staying at Björn's place :) Lovely and clean apartment and not to mention his two chihuahua's are so adorable and well behaved too!!!!! Since we arrived late (at 11pm) he offered to fetch us from the airport (for the same price as the flybus) and was also very kind to send my mom and I to the bus station to catch our bus to the airport too!! Nearest pickup point is at Lily Guesthouse (20 min walk) though but the price is good! :)

  • Bjorn was an amazing host. Nice place in the outskirts of the city, quite and serene, and just a few minutes by bus. There is a nearby valley at walking distance where we spent an entire day. His place is very well designed and he knows a lot about interiors, architecture, music, and in general we had some great conversations while we were at home. Kitchen was fantastic and he gave us full flexibility to use anything we want and cook anything we want. He helped us a lot in sharing bus routes and timings and also dropped us to bus stops a few times when we were confused. Not to forget, the 2 dogs who were the absolutely adorable. They used to just come up and sit on our laps. Great place, great host and if I ever go back to Iceland (which I will), I am going to stay at Bjorn's place. Thanks Bjorn for the amazing place and we had an awesome time.

  • Björn is a good host. And his house is clean and useful. There is no problem. When we arrived in Reykjavík, it was midnight. But he came to BSI bus station to pick us up by his car. He was so kind. I hope to return his house. If you stay in Reykjavík, here is the one of the best place.

  • Thank you for staying at your really nice Appartement.

  • We were only able to stay with Bjorn for one night, but he was a great host. Bjorn is very nice and has comfortable accommodations that are easy to find. We would recommend Bjorn to others looking to visit Iceland! Thanks, Bjorn!

  • Great place to stay without all the fuzz.
    Quiet neighbourhood,supermarkets in walking distance,a free pick-up
    and when you ask you can borrow his bike(s) to go downtown
    Could use all the things in the appartment,kitchen etc.
    Björn is a friendly/helpfull guy who will make you feel like if you were home
    Keep in mind that you are further away from the city-center !!
    By car almost 12 minutes,but you can do it by bus or bicycle too.

  • Our stay with Bjorn was short but did all he could to make us feel home. We arrived with a 8-9 hours delay and nonetheless he came to pick us up. His place is a great base place to visit Reykjavik. It is not in Reykjavik per se but he has 2 bikes with which you're there in no time. most of the time we had the house for ourselves since Bjorn was working... well, not for ourselves but as well for the lovely and enthusiastic 2 dogs that Bjorn owns.
    It was a pleasure staying there.

  • Björn has an extremely warm-hearted, friendly and sociable personality - and not to mention his good sense of humour...We had nice discussions on sports, politics, music, Iceland, etc. It's a pity we couldn't spend more time with him :-) We received all help when needed.
    And his 2 the newcomers and they always made us laugh!
    The apartment is a nicely furnished, well-equipped, decorative and modern accommodation - we especially loved the underfloor-heating both in the kitchen and the bathroom. Truly recommended to everyone!
