No... house rules - just be happy ;)
Or just one smoking inside the apartment is prohibited.
We loved staying at óskars appartment! It's beautiful furnitured and bigger as everything we know from Icelands appartments :)! Óskar even came over the other day to help us fix a problem we had with the supercool TV. He is very friendly and responded always super fast to our mails.
We totally recommend to stay at óskars beautiful appartment and as we will come again for sure the next year we want to stay there again ;)!
Oskar was a very friendly and helpful host, and was really understanding when we arrived about an hour later than we had hoped after flying in and renting a car. The apartment is super clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Oskar even keeps breakfast cereals and basic groceries, including spices etc for guests to use. The bed is THE most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. I'd highly recommend staying here and would stay again. The apartment is better than it looks in the photos and is a quick drive of about 10km into the city centre.
We stayed two great nights here. Oskar was really flexible with our arrival time, and offered some information on visiting the area. He had everything we could have ever asked for in an apartment. Clean, comfortable, and totally equipped... even a smart tv! We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend Oskar's place. :)
Fantastic place to stay. It has literally everything you can need, its in a great location and its very comfortable. The apartment has a great view and is close to Reykjavik. Oskar is a great host and also let us check in early in the morning, which was great for my jet lagged girlfriend who had just arrived. Would highly recommend staying here.
Oskar's place is the best place to stay. Not to far from the Airport and Reykjavik, easy to navigate around. You have grocery store, pharmacy, gas station and car wash (proven to be very useful). It is a very quiet neighbourhood. The apartment itself has everything you may need. Hafnarfjordur is also a quint little town. Go for walk by the harbour and downtown, you will see a lot... Even maybe some elfs! Thx Oskar for the few ideas, it was appreciated and a plus for the experience.
Oskar's place was perfect because it was spacious and had all the amenities to make it feel like home. Being that we couldn't bring much on our trip because of weight restrictions from the airline, having access to a washer and dryer was a godsend. Oskar accommodated us for an early check-in and he always responded right away to any texts before and after our stay. His place was a quick drive to the center of town in Reykjavik....not a problem if you have a rental like we had! Parking wasn't an issue. The neighborhood is residential and quiet. Thank you Oskar for letting us use your place!
Oskar was the best host imaginable! He stayed in contact with us before and during the stay, to make sure we were enjoying our visit to Iceland, as well as providing us with a useful website full of hints and tips. The apartment was in a great location in terms of getting around (close to the Airport, supermarket, blue lagoon, and Reykjavik), and we had no problems finding it thanks to Oskar's directions. The flat had everything we needed, and we had an incredible stay - thank you Oskar!
