About this listing
Beautiful and comfortable one and a half - two bedroom design apartment, perfect for 3 ppl.
If you want to experience the (sometimes) crazy Rvk nightlife and all it has to offer but be sure to have a good night sleep, this is the perfect place.
A cozy and beautiful designer apartment (that has been photographed and published in home decor magazines) is located in the westside of Reykjavik in a quiet family neighborhood.
The apartment has two bedrooms, in the master bedroom we have a 160X200 bed. In the extra bedroom we have a sleeper sofa (for 2) and it's possible to add an extra bed (80x200cm) .
The apartment has a newly renovated bathroom with a shower and a bathtub. A brand new sink and toilet and very good storage.
The kitchen was renovated from A to Z a few months ago, the old kitchen was thrown out and a brand new luxurious kitchen was installed. It has all the modern comforts, a built in dishwasher, induction cook top, oven, a built in refrigerator and freezer and lots of storage. It's also so pretty to look at.
The dining area is by the window so you can enjoy the garden view while you eat. The chairs are an old designer classic by Eero Saarinen and the light hanging above is the famous Copper Shade Pendant by Tom Dixon. The dining experience can't go wrong there.
The living room / bedroom is a cosy room with a sleeper sofa for 2, a beautiful antique chest and a desk, a LED 46" TV, an Apple TV and 3 bookcases filled with interesting books at your disposal. There is a large window in this room so you'll have a gorgeous garden view.
You will have access to free parking (right outside the apartment), a washing machine in a newly renovated room and an high speed internet connection.
The flat is within two minutes walking distance from Reykjavik's most famous geothermal swimming pool (Vesturbaejarlaug) and the best gourmet shop in town (Melabud). A ten minute walk downtown and a five minute walk to the seafront in the opposite direction (Aegissida), a popular area for walking, running and bicycling.
The flat is also within WALKING distance of all the major central Reykjavik tourist attractions, including:
- National museum of Iceland (8 minutes);
- Laugavegur (main shopping street) (12 minutes);
- University of Iceland (3 minutes);
- The Pond and Central Park (8 minutes);
- The harbour and whale watching offices (15 minutes)
If you need any help with organizing trips around Reykjavik (museums, restaurants) or trips outside the city I will be more than happy to assist in any way that I can.
High speed internet, washing machine, dishwasher, dryer, parking space, library.
The neighborhood is fantastic! It is a quiet family neighborhood, with kids playing on the streets and people grilling in their back yard.
I love that I have a guaranteed good night's sleep at home but I'm still so close to the city center. I can walk dowtown and participate in the (sometimes) crazy nightlife in Reykjavik and then walk back home and sleep for as long as I want.
There are many bus stops close to the apartment, most of them are in 3 minutes walking distance.
Other Things to Note
I will leave a map for future guest and a list of must do's in Iceland.
Hey all! I love my beautiful apartment so if you could please treat it with respect and courtesy and don't do anything that you would not typically do in your own home.
Also, I have neighbours upstairs so please be considered of them when you stay at my place.
But most importantly - Enjoy yourself :)
Maria hat uns sehr gut informiert über alles. Wir könnten jederzeit nachfragen, wenn wir etwas wissen wollten.
Nice apartment. Perfect for 3-4 people. Location is VERY good, quite and close to grocery store, swimming pool and cafe. 15 minutes walk to the main shopping streets.
Amazing apartment in prime location. Truly felt like a local with the quaint coffee shop and thermal pool located just down the street. Would definitely stay here again!
Maria's flat is lovely and we enjoyed staying there a lot.
Just around the corner is a cute cafe and a supermarket, which is very handy.
Organising our stay with Maria was very easy and everything worked out perfectly.
Maria's apartment is in a very good location, an easy walk to the center of the city, yet on a quiet side street, with a market just across the street. The unit is spacious with a comfortable bed and large couch . Maria was easily reached and flexible in arranging for our late arrival. Thank you for sharing your space with our family!
Iceland is a true phenomenon. The five short days we stayed were amazing. This flat is perfect for a single person or a couple; we were within walking distance to everything. If concerned about doing excursions, etc, this flat is a swift 1/2 mile (we mapped it) from a hotel called Radisson Blu Saga and all excursion busses will pick you up from this hotel--even on departure to hotel. Although we never met our lovely host, she was very prompt with communication and gave several recommendations. We had no problems or issues, so there was no reason to contact other than prior to arrival.
The apartment was great! We had an issue with the key, but Maria was on top of it and came and helped us and worked to fix the keys right away. The space was as described, and we thought the apartment was beautiful. It's a walk to the city center, but nothing we didn't expect from reading her listing. It's a pleasant walk, and we enjoyed our stay and everything Maria did. Iceland was amazing, and Maria made everything convenient for us during our stay.
