Interaction with Guests
I prefer to meet and greet all guests. From there on I'll be one phone call away if anything is needed.
Laugardalur is a charming and quiet neighborhood. Laugardalur park, botanical garden and zoo in close walking distance as well as Reykjavik's #1 geothermal pool. Within 10 a minute walk: 3 bakeries, grocery stores, a Thai place, indian, a sushi place etc.
A few steps will take you to the nearest bus stop. From there you can take a bus straight downtown in 15-20 minutes. Also plenty of parking if you have a car. A taxi downtown costs (phone number hidden) ISK.
A taxi all the way from the airport is the best option but will set you back about 14.000 ISK. The other way is taking the Flybus to BSÍ (2.200 per person) and a taxi (phone number hidden) ISK) or bus (350 ISK each) from there.
We want guests to leave the apartment in about the same condition they accept it in. If guests do not wish to clean after themselves, they will be expected to pay for a cleaning service.
Haukur was a fantastic host! The place was exactly what we were looking for. Very good location and convenient. So glad we stayed there! You won't regret it.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour. L'endroit est calme, accueillant et bien situé. C'est idéal pour visiter Reykjavik sans pour autant être dans le centre.
L'appartement correspond tout à fait à la description.
Nos hôtes ont été discrets et prévenants ainsi que réactifs en cas de problème.
The appartment is very warm and cosy and ideally furnished. Very practical and all in good taste. The cat is charming. Count about 10 minutes taxi to the old downtown Reykjavik, and plan pick ups from Hilton or Lights hotel for excursions. Haukur was very helpful. Definitely recommend!
Reykjavik and its surroundings are a dream holiday destination even in the harsh winter conditions!
Haukur is absolutely fantastic. He is polite and very quick to reply. The apartment was immaculate and looked exactly like it does in the photographs. It was cozy, quiet and just lovely. The kitchen was fantastic. He had everything a person could ever need for cooking. The neighborhood was also quaint and quiet with stores within walking distance. My favorite part about staying at Haukur's place was how close I was to the local pool and the World Class gym and Spa. That area is surrounded by a lovely botanical garden and lovely trails. It was nice to be so close to downtown as well, yet not have to be around all the late night noise and partying if I didn't want to be. What you get from this apartment is a huge bargain. Haukur is lovely and his place is perfect for that quiet and quaint Iceland experience. I would definitely stay here again on my way through Iceland again. :)
Me and my best friend decided to travel somewhere we have never been before. We thought of Iceland because of it's beautiful surroundings, as we are adventure junkies and knew this was the place for us. The one thing that we worried about most was a safe place to stay. We had been checking out several places on airbnb but ater chatting with Haukur for a while, we knew this was the host to go through and booked that day. Haukur is a very kind hearted, smart, genuine person who can help you with all of the questions you have about your travel adventure. His apartment is gorgeous, was spotless when we arrived, has a beautiful kitchen with every appliance you would ever need! He even had a map with pin pointed locations that were nearby. We loved this place because it was about a 5 minute drive into town so it is nice and quiet, and a beautiful area of Reykjavik. The neighbours are very friendly and it's so close to the outdoor geothermal pool. We would recommend Haurkurs apartment to anyone looking for a cozy, quiet place to stay! We will be back for sure! Without this apartment, our stay in Iceland would not have been the same!
Haukur is a great guy and a great host. Although we weren’t able to meet face to face, he responded to all our queries very promptly, created for us a guide with a map of the area, and made sure that his home was fully set up and ready for our arrival.
He has a neat and tidy, cozy home in a great neighborhood with all the necessary conveniences within walking distance. Comfortable beds, a full kitchen and lots of great sunlight made our stay very comfortable – felt just like home! Street parking is easy and super convenient too.
I would recommend Haukur and his Skipasund home for anybody travelling to Iceland for the first time.
"We had a very pleasant stay ! The flat is really is just great, very cosy, close from everything you need to enjoy your stay in Reykjavik. Everything to feel just like home. We really recommend it.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour ! L'appartement est juste génial, très confortable, proche de tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour profiter pleinement de votre séjour à Reykjavik. Il y a tout pour se sentir comme à la maison. Nous le recommandons vivement."
