  • The apartment was terrific. Perfectly located, just 2-3 minutes walk to the city center where all the shops, bars and restaurants were. Amazingly quiet; so close to everything, but no noise at all!!
    Free parking in front of the apartment!
    The apartment had everything we needed. It was bright and warm, - because of the floor heating; even though it was stormy and freezing weather outside, we actually never needed our warm slippers inside.
    Sigga is a great host. She always responded almost immediately to our mails and when we arrived, she had stuffed the fridge with some snacks to make us feel right at home. She was very friendly and helpful.
    We surely recommend this apartment and hope to be back ourselves for maybe the next New Years Eve!

  • My girlfriend an I stayed in Reykjavik for 3 nights in Siggas apartment. The apartment is small and nice, equipped with all the essentials, in close proximity to the city center. Perfect for 1 or 2 people.
    We went from the airport to the center by bus and Sigga picked us up at the bus-station, showed us a bit around town and then the apartment. Very convenient for us, who had never been to Iceland before.
    Highly recommended!

  • We had a fantastic stay at Sigga's apartment. She picked us up at the bus station (although in retrospect the apartment is so close to the Grayline bus station we could have just walked), gave us a tour of the place, and made sure we had her contact info.

    The apartment was exactly as advertised. It was clean, it was bright, and everything was in working order. Having a full fridge, freezer, stove, microwave, coffee maker, plus Netflix and WiFi, made our weeklong stay much more comfortable than a hotel.

    Best of all, the location was ideal. An easy five minute walk to downtown shops, restaurants, sightseeing, and even closer to the Old Harbour. But still in a quieter more residential area (although we never saw nights get too loud and rowdy downtown despite Reykjavik's reputation).

    Before our trip, Sigga responded promptly to all our messages and questions.

    We had a great trip, and would whole heartedly recommend this place (and hopefully come back at stay there again).

  • Before arriving in Iceland, Sigga was helpful at answering any questions we had and responded to them all very quickly. One of my friends arrived in Reykjavik before the rest of us and was picked up by Sigga from the bus station. She had only nice things to say about her.

    Sigga's apartment is exactly how it is seen and described on the site. It was clean, modern and comfortable. The underfloor heating kept the flat nice and warm throughout our stay. There were 4 people on this trip, which is perfect for this apartment. It is conveniently located with bars, shops and restaurants all being a short walking distance away.

    I would definitely recommend this apartment and would love to stay there again when we go back to Iceland.

    Thank you Sigga. :)

  • We really enjoyed meeting Sigga and she got us off to a great start in Reykjavik! The apartment was very nice and exactly what we were looking for. It was very clean and had everything we needed - the heated floors were awesome and kept us cozy and warm for the entire stay. The location was excellent, too - it is in a very beautiful neighborhood which was very close to the marina, restaurants, Iceland Excursions, Iceland University, and a very nice local heated swimming pool! We were able to do a lot of cooking with local food thanks to the nice kitchen and nearby 24-hour grocery stores. Thanks Sigga!

My name is Sigga and I live in Reykjavik with my husband and 3 kids. I grew up in Florida until the age of 18 so I´ve had the best of both worlds!. I love to travel and meet new people from different places with interesting stories. As your Airbnb host, I am close by if you need me. The house has its own private entrance, so unless you'd like recommendations for restaurants or help with anything else, you will feel like you're in your home-away-from-home. I take my hosting responsibilities seriously, and aim to make your visit to Reykjavik as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! :-)
