About this listing
Want to experiance the suburban life in Reykjavík area.
Nice and cozy apartment in Fossvogur valley in Kopavogur right next to Reykjavík. Next to the apartment is a great walking and biking route that lies on one hand to Reykjavík city center and on the other to Elliðardalur valley. On the way to Reykjavík is a first class restaurant, the Pearl, moving circulating on round every hour, overviewing the metropolitan area. The Pearl surrounding is desirable for a outdoor activity such as hiking, jogging, picnicking and biking, not to mention a breathtaking overviews towards the Pearl. Also the great biking route takes you along the sea shore and by Reykjavík artificial beach Nauthólsvík. The walk to downtown Reykjavík is very nice and takes about 30 minutes.
The two greatest shopping malls in Iceland, Smáralind, in Kópavogur, and Kringlan, in Reykjavík, are reachable from the apartment, only in 2 km distance each. Other accessible facilities and activities can be reached in just 500 m distance, such as restaurants, grocery-stores, bakeries, cafés, ice-cream shop and 24/7 store. Also there is the townsmusic hall,Salurinn((website hidden)) art museum, Gerðasafn is not far away. There is also a good 50 meters swimming pool with nice warm pools and good children areas.
Transportation with bike is highly recommenced and really convenient although a bus stop is just 100 meters away and its rout is every 30 minute.
The apartment has one cosy double bed and bed linen and towels included. It is possible to get a traveling bed for a small child up to 2 or 3 years old in the apartment. Also it comes with a TV, radio and a free wireless internet access. Nice green area can be overlooked to the west from the balcony with a barbeque and a seating area to enjoy food outside also.
This is a apartment build so living in piece and harmony with the rest of the residents is what people need to do.
Super appartement tout équipé.. Rien ne manquait.. Facile d'arrangement avec l'hôte.. Merci
What a lovely place to stay and so perfectly located! The apartment is comfortable and has everything necessary. We did not meet Kolbrun as her son let us in but she was always easy to access via e-mail if we had any questions or concerns. She was kind enough to provide wi-fi via sim cards which made internet access easy and convenient.
I would highly recommend staying here and would love to do so again - This country is so beautiful I will need to return again soon.
Nette kleine Wohnung. Ruhige Lage, nur 4 km von Reykjavík entfernt. Statt WLAN gibt es eine Prepaid-Sim-Karte.
Die Wohnung ist gut ausgestattet, aber nichts für pingelige Naturen. Dafür bekommt man aber eine sehr preiswerte Unterkunft. Der Kontakt mit Kolbrun war stets nett und freundlich.
We really enjoyed our stay in the flat. It is spacious, clean, warm, well equipped, with a good bedding and well located (5min from two supermarkets, one of them being a 24/7, also 10min from Reykjavik city center by car and close to the main roads). There are parking spots all around the flat.
Kolbrun was a great host and we would enjoy coming back to this place for a new Icelandic trip!
Lovely flat, nicely located near Reykjavik and easy to find. It was cozy and clean, in a quiet neighborhood. Our host met us at the flat and explained several features. There were also several travel brochures and plenty of maps, if you're keen to explore the region's many natural wonders. It was a great way to spend a few days in a new place!
Flat is in a great location. Perfect for day trips. Every basics things are in the flat, to cook as well. Which is good after a big day ! We had a Mobil SIM card as well which was perfect to talk with Kolbrun !
Only two negatives points : a slightly dirty kitchen and no wifi access for mobile phone.
But we recommend the place 100% !
We had an amazing time in Iceland !
It was a pleasure to stay at Kolbrun's place. The only small problem with the internet was solved by Kolbrun extremly promptly. It's perfect place to stay if you have a car a want to make daily trips from Reykjavik.
