Have you ever sat in a hot tub with northern lights dancing above? If not Elves Hill Studio might be the right place for you in Iceland. Since the nineteen thirties it has been widely believed elves live in a rock 300 meters up the road. Several attempts to straighten a curve there and move the rock failed dramatically. Vehicles and machinery broke down and workers were hurt but don´t worry, the small hidden people are nice and have absolutely nothing against humans as long as they respect their homes.
Centrally located in the capital area we offer a very nice private studio with access to a big garden and a large hot tub/Jacuzzi. Four can sleep in the studio in a double bed and a sleeping (website hidden), radio and a free wireless internet access. Bed linen and towels included as well as comfortable bathrobes and slippers. The lovely & sociable cat Kátína(Happiness) adopted me l2012 so she might visit you but it is up to you if you let her in.
5 minutes walk to the best view point in town and where more elves are said to live and rule. Two buses taking you to downtown Reykjavík in 15 minutes, stop 90 meters from the studio and there is plenty of free parking around. LGB and family friendly.
Nearby there are grocery stores, cafés, bakeries and shopping malls. If you decide to walk to downtown Reykjavík I recommend a very nice 40 minutes walk through parks, along the sea shore and by Reykjavík artificial beach.
I live next door and my mother lives downstairs. We are very happy to assist you in order to make your stay in Iceland very enjoyable. Look forward to see you in Iceland!
Very nice place and of course the cat was a welcome treat. Our hosts were very nice and helpful. We enjoyed a nice evening in the tub and a relaxing morning in the studio, which was equipped with everything to make a nice meal.
The studio equipped with everything we want, bright and clean. It's a bit distance from city center, but it's also an advantage of seeing northern light. Thanks to Siggi for his aurora alert :) so that we were lucky to see the amazing light in his garden and just over our head. The cute cat is very sociable which in my picture, we were expect to welcome her every night, but she only came twice...=^.^=
In one word: cosy! Spacious and totally independant garden studio, 5' by car from Reykjavik center. All the comfort expected, with a significant plus: hot tub in the garden.
Perfect place to discover Reykjavik and South of Island. Sigur is a cheerful and discreet host. Can't recommend strongly enough this place!
Great place ! The studio is cosy and very clean. Sigursteinn and his mother were very kind and helpfull. We would definitely recommend !
My partner and I stayed at this studio for 9 nights in January. The studio is very nice and was clean when when we arrived. We really enjoyed the heated floor in the entryway and bathroom. The bus system is easy to use to get to the city of Reykjavik and I liked the area we stayed in. The area the apartment is in is residential and we felt safe and it was in walking distance of the bank and grocery store. Since the food in Iceland is quite expensive, we cooked at least 2 meals every day so it was great to have the kitchen with all of the cooking supplies. Sigi and his mother are very hospitable and also respect your privacy. We used the hot tub a couple times and it was delightful. Katina the cat was very friendly and cute and it was so nice to have a little animal that would visit us. But if you don't like cats you don't have to let her inside. We had a great time in Iceland and if I came back I would definitely stay in this studio again
The host was nice and responsive. The studio was very clean and cozy. Hot tub experience was good. Sig's mother was nice enough to drive us to a meeting point nearby. There is at least a Bonus supermarket in walkable distance and you can see pretty city view. If you book local tours, please confirm the pickup/drop-off location with travel agencies since not all the agencies are flexible enough to drive to a private property (as opposed to guesthouses). Thank you Sig for your arrangements during our stay.
Great host! Great studio! Me and my fiance spent 3 nights at the studio and could not be happier with the choice. The studio was nicely decorated, clean, and in a good location. The hot tub was great to come back to after a long day of exploring. We would definitely recommend renting from Sigursteinn!
Sigursteinn's place was absolutely amazing. Beautiful studio with all the amenities, very comfortable, immaculate and in a great location. Sig's mom was also a wonderful host and helped with everything we needed. The only regret was not getting to use the hot tub because we were out catching the Northern Lights! Great experience!
The place was great. Close to amenities but a little far from downtown Reykjavik. He even heated up the hot tub for us.
We had an enjoyable stay. The studio was clean and comfortable. We appreciate that the place was well-stocked with cooking/eating utensils and condiments too.
Our hosts took good care of us too. On our first day there, Sigursteinn's mother kindly drove us around to show us the neighbourhood, as well as the city centre. It really helped us find our way around over the week.
The studio was quite accessible too, with regular bus services to the city centre. There were also a couple of supermarkets nearby.
Overall, we had a good stay and would definitely recommend this!
