About This Listing
We are a 4 person family and we're trying our luck abroad. Meanwhile we would love for you to stay in our apartment and enjoy what Reykjavik has to offer.
Our luxury duplex apartment has two bedrooms, amazing views and two wonderful south facing balconies that are divine in summer. It is close to Reykjavik city center and the sports facilities in Laugardalur. You will reach these destinations easily by walking 5-10 minutes. The main local bus station is also only minutes away. There are restaurants and grocery shops very close by. It's close enough to the city center that you don't need a car to explore it but it is in a quiet neighborhood.
Feel free to use all the amenities. The WiFi, the TV, the DVD, the Wii. The kitchen, the washer/dryer, the BBQ and anything else you find useful. You can also drop your car off in the free parking space. Basically we want you to feel at home in our home :)
The bedrooms have a queen size and california king size beds. Both bedrooms have special blinds that block out the 24 hr daylight. Traveling with a small child? Crib and changing station too!
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us!
We would like you to treat our home like you would yours.
I'm so glad we found this apartment, close enough to the centre to get there after a short walk but the right distance to avoid too much noise.
Having the kitchen was great for us as we were trying to keep costs down. A few trips to Bonus and we were well stocked for good meals for the whole week. We would have loved to enjoy our meals on the balconies to take in the great views but November was just a little bit too cold for us to try that!
We will make sure to look to see if this is available when next in Iceland.
This is an excellent place to stay! You'll feel like you're living in the comfort of your own home. The location is great as it is right next to major bus stations and the main downtown areas but far enough away that it is silent at night. Only issue I would say is there was a fair amount of construction going on. The 9 am jackhammer for a week straight was a bit annoying.
Also comes with a great coffee/espresso machine that got plenty of use from us! I would definitely recommend this place!
Manga Dorra has a lovely apartment in a perfect location for exploring Reykjavik. The apartment has a beautiful master suite bedroom with sitting room and a comfortable lower level bedroom, living room and kitchen. All the amenities you could need are available for use and the main downtown street is within walking distance. It was also a big plus to have our own private parking spot in the complex. The only downside we experienced is that the hot water didnt work for about a day but Magga Dorra was very fast to respond and have a plumber over to fix the problem.
We had an amazing experience in Iceland and Magga Dora's flat was perfect -- clean, comfortable and as expected judging from what we saw and read on Airbnb. Our hosts were very responsive and everything went perfectly!
Would stay again!
We enjoyed 12 day stay in your lovely apartment. The two separate sleeping areas worked really well as there were three of us.
The location was perfect, we walked everywhere. From this location we had the option of accessing the downtown or exploring the city.
We highly recommend your apartment, and would like to stay again on any return trips to your very interesting country.
We had a fantastic stay in Reykjavik!
Magga Dora always felt reachable and responded lightning quick.
There is a lot of space to work with and the spiral stairs are not difficult to navigate (even with a suitcase) just go slow.
The beds were comfortable and plenty of towels.
The kitchen really rocked, it was nice to not have to buy spices when we cooked. Additionally, just about every utensil is stocked. Food is extremely expensive in the area so having a kitchen really helped with the bottom line. (although nearby Ban Thai was exquisite!).
Felt safe and had easy pickups for tours (special thanks to the previous post for mentioning Hotel Klettur as the place for the Flybus!).
The streets were surprisingly quiet (and we were there for a Friday/Saturday night!) even road noise was minimal.
This was a lived in place and felt like my vacation home, I would stay here again...
The apartment was really cool duplex. I had to stay in a much more expensive hotel room for one night and wouldn't suggest it, just stay here instead. Magga as communicator and Karlotta as on-site assistance were a winning combination. Magga, straight forward, understanding and creative. Karlotta, helpful, kind, and sweet. I would suggest this apartment to fellow travelers, if you can make it to Iceland, then this is the place to stay.
About the Host, Magga Dora
We are a family of four and we're moving to Boston. We would love to share our home with you. We are a techy family, we love gadgets and design. My husband and I work in IT and we love making stuff. We also travel quite a bit and visit far away places to experience the wonders of the world and the people in it. Lately we had an addition to the family, a little baby boy, and we can't wait to show him. :)
