About this listing
A small studio apartment in my house. You have your own entrance, small bathroom with a washing machine and dryer and a small kitchenette so you have your privacy but I am next door if needed Free Wifi and Public transportation is 5 minutes away.
THE STUDIO is small but has a double bed, internet, shower, washer, dryer,and the very nice travelers best friend... the hot - tub:-)
The flybus from Keflavik airport stops not far away, and we are happy to provide pick-up from there. It is within walkable distance, but kind of hard to walk with the bags, not to mention find the way. We are located in the older part of Hafnarfjordur and there are some places of interest nearby. First I would mention Hellisgerdi, where the elves are said to live, This is a beautiful, park, with trees and lava.
Hafnarfjordur is about 35 minutes drive away from the airport and about 15 minutes drive from Reykjavik Center.
It´s about 5 mins walk from the apartment to Straeto, the public transportation to Reykjavik and about 15 minutes walk from the Viking Hotel where the Flybus stops. There are some nice restaurants close by, and just 5 mins walk to the seaside. The local swimming pool is not far away, 1.2 km or about 20 minutes walk. . In the apartment we have a large map of Iceland, and we have marked some suggestions for longer trips on the map. we also have a printer available for guests, this can come in handy when planning.
There are two grocery stores in a walkable distance, one is a low-price store where you can get everything you need, the other is open for longer hours, but more expensive. The bus station is close by and the bus goes to Reykjavik midtown every twenty minutes.

Interaction with Guests
Very flexible, we often go into the hot tub with our guests and spend time with them if they want. If our guests want privacy they can have that also, but our door is always open for our guests.
Hellisgerdi the elf park is absolutely great, the town has a very lovely center with restaurants, coffee houses and shops and our harbor is said to be the best made by nature so this was a trading center for years.
There is a great swimming pool close by and supermarket is in a walking distance.
The Flybus from Keflavik airport stops in a few minutes walking distance and from there it is easy to get on most guided tours.
The bus to Reykjavik center is 5 minutes walk away and goes to Reykjavik every 20 minutes from morning to midnight. The center of Reykjavik is 15 minutes away with bus
Other Things to Note
NOTE. There is no smoking in the apartment but we smoke outside the house and some of our guests sent us notification because they smell traces of smoke.
We hope you feel like at home when you are staying with us.
Sigridur was super friendly, informative and flexible. My fiancé and I got in around 2:00 am and she had the place all set up for us. She touched base with us next day and gave us some great ideas for around town stuff as well as showing us how to use the hot tub. She really was great especially with our weird time frame.
Lovely host, so friendly and helpful from the offset. Didn't see much of her thereafter as we were out and about for the duration of or stay, but we did end up book in another night it was so well suited to our needs. Amazing tub, quality shower, would recommend.
Good apartment in a beautiful area and very close to the city center. Good price and Host very polite. Recommended
Sirry was very welcoming and very responsive and accessible. Her suggestions as to where we should tour and visit in Iceland were wonderful. The apartment was charming and clean, equipped with everything one may need. The coffee machine and complimentary coffee was delicious and easy to use.
If we return to Iceland, we would love to stay again!
The host walked a few extra miles for us. We felt safe in the neighborhood but did not have a chance to spend anytime in the neighborhood as we were out sight seeing all the time.
My son and I stayed in this cosy studio apartment at the end of a 3 week trip round Iceland. It was perfect for a few days to visit Reykjavik. The flat is in Hafnarfjordur which is a lovely part of the city and well worth taking the time to explore. Sigridur was very kind and super helpful throughout our stay.
It was a perfect stay at sigridur. We had our entrance, bathroom and little kitchen. It is a perfect stay when you come from the airport kevlavik.
