Our beautliful one bedroom apartment is situated in down town Hafnarfjordur. Just few steps from the shopping street, where you will find a good variety of cafe's and restaurants. Even though central it is a very quiet and friendly street.
The appartment is in a old historical house in Hafnarfjordur. One the first floor where the appartment is situated used to be a small local grocery shop and the grocer himself lived on the upper floor (where we live now).
In the appartment is a open space kitchen, dining and livingroom area, a small but a lovley bathroom with a big shower and a bedroom with a queens size bed. There is a sofa bed for two persons in the living room. We can also provide a infant travel bed. There is television, internet connection, bedding, washing machine, and all kitchen utilities (toaster, coffie maker, juicer, blender, pots and pans and so forth).
We only use eco-freindly cleaning products and recycle all waste.
Guests may always ask for extras and we will do what we can to fullfill all requests.
The appartment is smoke free.
We can assist you and be at hand on daily basis or leave you be in total peace and quite, it´s all up to you.
Just ask for service needed and we will do our very best.
Down town Hafnarfjörður is very charming; beautiful old houses, narrow streets and the presence of raw nature and the ocean is what first captures once heart.
The central bus station is only 100 meters away, a short walking distance. From there you can take the bus straight into Reykjavík central only a 30 mín trip. The Keflavik flybus stops about 200 meters from our house. And all essentials services are in short walking distance.
We welcome guest that treat the housing with respect. We do not allow pets and smoking is prohibited inside the flat.
We had a wonderful time at Rakel and Ludwig's rental home. This is a perfect place to stay if you do not want to be around the loud party scene in Reykjavik. It is a lovely seaside town that is close enough to the tourist attractions yet far enough away to be able to appreciate how the "locals" live. It is a perfect family apartment, and they were kind enough to let us use their car!
The appartment of Rakel and Lúlli is spacious, beautiful and very comfortable. We would definitely stay there again! It's only a short drive to Reykjavik centre and the shops and busstop is very nearby.
Rakel and Lúlli are wonderful hosts. Lúlli knows his way around Iceland and can tell you where to find the most beautiful places!
I cannot sing the praises of this home and the hosts loudly enough.
The flat was incredibly comfortable and cozy, with all the amenities we could have hoped for. It was clean, airy, and it quickly felt like home. The location was excellent. While some may be deterred because it is not in Reykjavik, Hafnarfjordur is a darling town and a very short trip into the city. The flat is convenient to everything you could want: adorable cafes and restaurants, shopping, and the cultural offerings of the town. There are public swimming pools warmed with geothermal water, parks, docks, and the Viking Hotel. Whether you rent a car or transport by bus, you can be in downtown Reykjavik in less than 30 minutes. The street is quiet and quaint, the neighbors are friendly, and there are plenty of kitties who enjoy a scratch behind the ear.
The hosts were amazing as well. They welcomed us as friends, and made sure that we had everything that we needed. We dearly enjoyed getting to know both Rakel and Ludvik, and loved connecting and chatting with them late into the night. They were great about giving us ideas of day trips, and were very knowledgeable about their own town and the country as a whole. If you're not sure of what to do during your stay, they can point you in the right direction. Their warmth and hospitality are a great representation of the kindness and openness you are sure to experience while in Iceland.
There is no doubt that if and when I return to Iceland that I will be reaching out to these two again. I could not have asked for a better experience.
I'm a health and nature enthusiast, I run and own a small human & Eco friendly shop just a minute walk from home. Me and my partner Lúlli have total 5 kids at the age of 3 - 21 year old, we also have a dog and a cat. My life evolves around my family and my interest in health and nature matters. Lúlli is a police officer and a carpender that love to renovate old houses and spend time in the great outdoors.
