This apartment has become my first choice when I'm visiting Reykjavík. Close to everything in the city center, and very comfortable and clean every time I visit.

The apartment was ready ahead of schedule after a long day of traveling from Los Angeles! We loved being able to get groceries, have a kitchen to cook in, and an apartment to call our own for a few days and we re-cooped from jet leg!

Dyrekifs place was the perfect home to cozy up to after a cold day. It's very centrally located, with an easy walk to down town and close to bus stops for tours. I would definitely recommend staying here. Dyrekif is super accompitable and friendly, which really made staying here a joy!

A cozy place filled with quirky charm and character. The location is unbeatable and check in was smooth. We enjoyed listening to the records and also appreciated the book of recommendations. Thanks!

I'd definitely recommend this very cosy, nicely furnished place. It's on a quiet street in a classic icelandic townhouse, but is just two blocks from Reykjavik's main street and within walking distance of most sights. Inside the place is actually quite generously sized for two people, and feels homey. We met neither host, but check-in and check-out were smooth and flexible. Recommended!

A great place to stay in the centre of Reykjavik but still a very quiet area.

Dýrleif User ProfileDýrleif is a superhost.

We are Thorunn and Dýrleif! We both live in Reykjavík city center with our families and have been friend for over 20 years. We love taking care of our downtown apartments and inviting guests to stay there to enjoy it. Our aim is that our guests will feel at home, relaxed and happy. Before we started renting apartments, Dýrleif was working as a stylist and in costume design for advertisements, movies and theatre. In recent years she has also studied sociology, management and strategic planning. Thorunn, a graduate from the University of Iceland in business, was working in Kramhusid-a dance and yoga studio and before that in tourism. We both love the basic things in life; wining and dining, spending time with friends and families. Our mutual interest are: new places and faces, experiencing different cultures and habits abroad as well as in our own homeland. We are happy to share - since sharing is caring!
