My son and I had a wonderful stay in Iceland. Haukur's place was clean and comfortable. He was very helpful and responded quickly via email. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Reykjavik.

Although we never got to meet Haukur, communication was great before and during our one-week stay. The apartment gets a lot of natural sunlight which was very nice since we visited in springtime. It also had everything you need to make yourself at home. The cat was really cute and friendly! It is in the residential area of Reykjavik. There is a bus stop 2 min walk away, and takes ca 15 min to get into the center. Really smooth! There are also several convenience stores a few blocks away. A 15 min walk will get you to the Laugardalslaug pool, which is amazing! There are several hot baths and huge swimming pools. It's very relaxing and a nice way to spend an afternoon. All in all, I would recommend this listing for those who are keen on cooking for themselves, and having a relaxing holiday but feeling at home at the same time.

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! Thanks Haukur!

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.

I love traveling and know how great it can be to stay in a real home abroad. I also love bacon.
