Our apartment is in downtown Reykjavik, a short walk to anything you could need. One block from Laugavegur, the main street, (just outside the "noisy" area) with transportation, restaurants, shops, museums, cafes, and bars - all within a few minutes! Hallgrimskírkja and Sundhöll (the oldest swimming pool, built in 1935) are all within walking distance.
Hlemmur, Reykjavik's main bus terminal and taxi hub, is just a 3-minute walk away.
If you are traveling with little ones, let us know if you will be needing "little people things" (toys, highchair, bedding).
VERY FRIENDLY AND HOSPITABLE OWNERS - SO PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO ASK FOR ANYTHING! [You may have seen us on House Hunters International ;) ]
Look forward to seeing you in Iceland....
We would ask you to keep the apartment tidy and use it like it's your home away from home. Please walk carefully in the corridor during night time, because the house is a 105-year-old wooden timberhouse with floor boards that sometimes creak. Icelandic customs are to not to play loud, disturbing music after 10 pm.
The apartment is perfect - great size, tastefully done, such a good location and has everything you need.
Valur and Edythe are more than friendly and helpful; we immediately felt at home, and can't imagine better hosts. Thanks for everything!
We had a great time during our stay at Gretisgata apartment. Valur and Edythe were lovely hosts and really helped to make our experience the best!
Lovely, clean, warm apartment, exactly the type of accommodation we were after. Thanks again for a fantastic trip.
Valur was present when we checked in and even actually waited on the street for us to arrive. He explained everything there is to know about Reykjavic while sitting down with us at in the living room, thanks again for that!
The apartment itself is even nicer than the pictures. Two nice and clean double beds, a cozy living room and a spacious bathroom. We liked it a lot and regretted leaving the apartment and Iceland behind.
Really nice little flat in a great location. My family and I arrived very late due to flight delays and some trouble with our rental car, but Valur was kind enough to wait up to help us with check-in.
The communication with our hosts was extraordinarily good. They answered promptly to all our questions beforehand, were eager to help and very friendly in personal contact. We could get the key ourselves in a locked small box outside. Comprehensive plans of the city and sights were presented on the table, Valur even took some time to explain some of his favorite places in Reykjavík, which we found very helpful. Towels and every possible household item is available and functioning well!
Edythe and Val's place is in a great location, very close to the popular spots in town. The apartment itself was very clean and cozy and felt like home away from home. My husband and I had a wonderful time in Reykjavik and loved staying at this place. Edythe and Val were very accommodating; I would definitely recommend staying here!
Edythe greeted us for an early arrival with a warm, friendly smile. She was so accommodating. Their apartment is located very close to the city center. Her description of their former home was accurate. There was everything you needed for your stay.

A very easy going family, we love the good things in life. Valur is in advertising, Edythe is currently a nursing student at the University of Iceland and works part-time in the Department of Neurology. Ari loves trains and Spiderman, and Baby Haukur loves music and cars. Very outgoing, always smiling and adventurous. Our goals are: 1) To save up enough money to buy a house with a huge backyard for the boys, and 2) Travel and learn about different cultures and people as much as we can. We love being Airbnb hosts because of the connection we've made with many of our guests from all over the world. We love introducing people to our beautiful yet small country and giving visitors insight on what places to visit during their stay.
