No... house rules - just be happy ;)

Oskar was fantastic!! We had arranged to meet at the apartment after we landed but we only managed to reach few hours later and he had tried to contact us even thinking he had made a mistake! He came immediately when we called him at 2+am! The apartment was cosy and made us feel at ease immediately. We loved the decor and surroundings of the apartment which is located conveniently between the airport and Rejkavik. The kitchen was thoughtfully equipped with everything you need for a short stay including different sized zip lock bags! We will definitely choose this place again if we come back to Iceland!!
This was my first time using Air B&B and we were not disappointed. We were greeted by Oscar and his daughter Iris at the time arranged. He furnished us with all the information we needed. The apartment is perfect, so clean with all you could need. If you like to cook Oscar has all the utensils you could want. For us the one thing that is normally is a let-down is the bed, but I have to say it was super comfy and we had a great sleep. Thanks for everything you are the perfect host, a home away from home.
Great stay at Oscar's! He was there to greet us when we arrived early in the morning, gave us the details about the apartment as well as some recommendations for things to do near by. It was the perfect location: close to Reykjavik, and the start of the Golden Circle...not far from the airport and Blue Lagoon. The apartment was very comfortable and exactly as pictured—plus great views from the front windows and deck! Highly recommended.
Oskar was quite prompt and responsive, especially since we were a bit early on our arrival. The apartment was very nice, well stocked, clean and had a nice view. Great location.
Oskar's apartment is a great and highly affordable (!) place to spend your time in Reykjavik. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, about a 20 minute drive to downtown. The place is very clean and seems to have been updated very recently. Oskar is a great host!
Ich kann mich den vorangegangenen Bewertungen nur anschließen. Das Apartment ist toll: Hell, sauber, stilvoll eingerichtet und hervorragend ausgestattet. Alles da was man für einen Aufenthalt benötigt. Die Lage ist super als Ausgangspunkt für Touren im Südwesten. Óskar ist ein toller Gastgeber, antwortet immer sofort und war immer hilfsbereit. Besonderen Dank für die umfangreiche Babyausstattung. Es war ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt. Absolut empfehlenswert.
the host was very nice and we loved the appartment. a lot of privacy and a nice bathroom of our own (after all the hotels we had). the balcony is very nice and the view was great.
