Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Audur was a wonderful host, very helpful and communicative. The apartment was beautiful and comfortable and exactly as pictured and described. -If I ever return to Iceland, I'd be happy for the privilege of staying there again.

    Many thanks to a most gracious host!

  • What a great apartment! We had an amazing time here. It's close to the city center, had all the basic amenities we required, and was a wonderful place to crash. I would rent here again, it definitely is the perfect home away from home!

    Audur was communicative and helpful throughout the entire process.

  • The flat was exactly as pictured and a very pleasant place to explore Reykjavik from. Its very light and spacious for a one-bedroom flat and really warm, which was great as the weather was turning to winter when we were there. It's also very close to the centre and other sights including the Hallgrimskirkja church (well worth a visit, and there's a lift to the top).
    We only met Audur once at the beginning of our stay, but she was very welcoming and helpful. Also she was very quick to respond to any messages we sent prior to our arrival in Iceland. Strongly recommend!!

  • The host, Audur, was most helpful, particularly in assisting with an arrival in the middle of the night. This well-located apartment was very clean, and was exactly as shown in the photos.
    Would return if again in Iceland.

  • Audur's got a great place that is within a short walk of everything you'll want to see and do in Reykjavik. The house is comfortable, clean, and really cool. The kitchen was big with plenty of light and the bed was super comfortable. Also the bathroom was really nice with a legit shower. When we come back to Iceland we'll be staying here again for sure.

    On our arrival there was even some food in the fridge and coffee and beer waiting for us. It was just what we needed after a long flight.

    A big plus that I didn't see in the other reviews is that the house is right near Hotel Klettur, which is a pick-up / drop-off point for the flybus and for many of the tours that operate around Reykjavik, which makes it super convenient.

    We never actually met Audur, but I feel like weare friends. The house definitely has a personality of it's own. You won't be disappointed staying here. It is a perfect place to really relax and recharge your batteries on vacation.

  • Audur's place was perfect for my vacation in Iceland. The flat is in a great location, close to the places to be and see in Reykjavik. Neat and clean, I felt right at home. Audur is great with good communication all the way through. I highly recommend!

  • We absolutely loved staying at Audur's place! It was exactly how it looks in the pictures and super conveniently located just a 5-10 minute walk from the heart of Reykjavik. She made sure we had the staples of life (coffee, wifi and maps of the city) and we felt right at home. Highly recommended!

  • The apartment was clean, quiet, and pretty much ideal for our purposes. Nice location, just a short walk down the hill to Laugavegur, the main drag of Reykjavik. Very nearby: convenience store, cafe, swimming pool (with hot tubs), a surprisingly good pizza joint.

    June 2012
  • We arrived in Reykjavik on Christmas Eve, just hours before everything closed for the holiday. Audur met us in her lovely apartment, helped us to make dinner reservations for Christmas, and set us up with everything we needed for the first few days. The apartment was perfect -- bright, quiet and clean. The bed is super comfortable and the bathtub is luxurious. We had a fantastic time exploring Reykjavik and Southern Iceland. I hope to return someday!

  • Audur was an amazing host! Very communicative, was very nice about flexible check in. Her apartment is huge and very clean. Has everything you need for a comfortable stay, even a huge bathtub! Would absolutely stay again!
