Host was great we were able two check in a little early as our flight came in at 6:45am. She also recommended a Bakery nearby so we could eat while we waited for her to clean up from the person that checked out that day. The place is exactly as picture and is near two hotels that offer tour pick ups. It was the perfect location there was a little mall down the street.
A wonderful stay. Perhaps our best Airbnb experience yet! Clean, well appointed, lovely area. Many thanks!
In Paris, we had a not so good experience with a host. So, I have to say, our expectations weren't so high. What a mistake! Alla Stina (sorry if I am still spelling it wrong!!), was the most amazing host ever! We were tired (and hungry) when we got there, and for our surprise she bought some iceland snacks for us! It was so lovely! We were crazy to see the nothern lights, and she gave us many tips and said she would let us know if she heard anything about it in the news! I can't say one negative comment about her. Neither about the house! It was a very lovely and comfy house! There was everything we needed to be able to cook and everything worked perfectly, it was just way too beautiful!
Visiting Iceland was an amazing experience, and it started from the moment we talked with her and noticed that the people there are really nice and helpful! I would visit there again, and I would stay in her house, again! =)
This was our first trip with Airbnb and I wish the we had found you sooner. The apartment was fabulous. Our host was ready with anything we needed. She even directed us to some local events that we would have never known about on our own. Iceland is beautiful in November and now I want to plan a trip in the summer to experience the long days! When we go back I already know where we're going to stay. Thank you for offering your apartment. Stephen
Me and 4 friends visited Iceland for a total of four days and four nights, in which we spent our accommodation at Alla Stina's apartment. This apartment is immaculate! Absolutely stunning. For someone tuned to London prices, an apartment like this could easily have cost us double of what we paid.
Heating and hot water is never a worry in Iceland; as from my understanding, the works are run on natural geothermal energy.
Alla Stina was very helpful with transport and shopping information and provided us with little tidbits here and there which we had forgotten to bring.
There are two rooms, a living room (joint to the kitchen and dining area), a laundry room, bathroom, a balcony connected to the living room and another connected to the master bedroom. There were enough beds to sleep around 8 people, between the two rooms + living room.
We only saw her twice as we didn't need much help, but we all knew she'd be at aid in a jiffy should a situation have arose.
Available yet never intrusive.
The apartment is located nearby a pretty harbour and is super convenient to get to and from the airport + Reykjavik. There are multiple shopping complexes nearby and a few fast food joints.
We- if not I- plan to return one day and this will most definitely be the apartment i'd rent again. You cannot go wrong with this one!
Thank you so much Alla Stina and i hope we left the apartment in a satisfactory condition :))
We had a very good time here. The house is very big, modern and well equipped. There're supermarket and restaurants around so life is easy. I'll strongly recommend it.
I am from Hafnarfjörður, and I love everything about tourists and showing up my hometown, I love my family and try to spend a lot of time with theme and I like to travel :)
