  • Gudmundur was fantastic! The fridge was stocked, he gave us so many good suggestions of places to go and experience and was always quick to respond to questions! The apartment was beautiful and just a quick drive from the city center!

  • Excellent spot if you have a rental car and can drive to downtown. Residential area, but very modern. Everything was clean and no issues. Construction next door didn't bother us as we stayed over a weekend. Nice for a 2 night stay!

    Matthew2017-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Gudmundur is a wonderful host. The apartment was well located and excellently equipped. G provided informative and helpful communications about Iceland and the local area, prior to and during our stay. I highly recommend Gudmunder's apartment.

  • Cute little 1st floor apartment. Quiet & safe area. Bathroom sink is too small compared to what we are used to. Definitely need a car to get around. Power went out on our last day before we left for the blue lagoon, however it came back on by the time we came home, thus it didn't interfere with our stay much. Washer & dryer are very small compared to what we are used to but they work well. It's nice of the host to include detergent so we didn't have to get any. Overall it was a nice short stay.

    Cory2017-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful house! Like it very much! Let's have a very happy holiday

  • Gudmunder is a great host and the apartment is very nice - well designed, well stocked, comfortable, with a great view. There were breakfast things in the refrigerator when we arrived. Gudmunder even invited us a bit early after our 8AM WOW flight, and we were able to rest before heading into Reykjavik. A bit out of the way of central Reykjavik, but easily accessible by car, taxi, or bus. Definitely on our list of places to stay when we return to Iceland.

    Reykjavík, Iceland

    This luxury modern villa on a quiet cul-de-sac is great for families, bigger groups or executive travelers who like a large amount of space and comfort. In a quiet, secluded suburb of Reykjavik, yet only 15-20 minutes to the city center by car (11 kilometers). Close to grocery stores and restaurants in the neighborhood. The house is geothermally heated with an advanced and environmentally friendly heating system.
    3 bathrooms, 5 bedrooms. Dining & Living room. Large media room with 65" LG smart TV with satellite connection with multiple stations. Fully equipped kitchen with luxury built-in amenities, such as Liebherr fridge with IceMaker. Kitchen has a rice cooker and a Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine. Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with double vanity and large double walk-in shower. Master bedroom has a walk-in closet. Bathroom #2 has a bathtub. Bathroom #3 has a shower. All bedrooms have plenty of cabinet space. House has large balconies with beautiful views over Reykjavik and on clear days you can see a glacier from the house (Snæfellsjökull). The balcony has garden furniture to enjoy the views from. Guests have access to the garden and wooden patio around the house. Families with kids will love the playhouse in the private garden for the little ones. In addition, there is a very well kept common kids playground across the road from the house. The house can come with 2 light baby cribs, if requested, which can be easily placed in any of the 5 bedrooms. You’ll love this house because of the quiet neighborhood, luxury modern amenities, and amazing views.
    The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac, yet close to all essential shops. It is about 1 kilometer or a 2-minute drive (about 10-15minute walk) from a shopping area called "Spöngin". Spöngin has a variety of basic restaurants such as Dominos, Subway, an Asian restaurant and more. In addition, there is a pharmacy, a bakery, a wine store, a low-cost grocery store (Bonus) as well as another grocery store that is open from 8 AM - 12 midnight, 7 days a week (Hagkaup) which is very convenient for our guests. There is a small kids playground just across the street from the home. Given the house is on a quiet street we ask our guests to be considerate to our neighbors.
  • This home is worth every penny. Pictures do not do justice at how nice this Home is. My friends and I spent a the last 5 days in this house and loved every second of it. Super clean and organized and has a great living and kitchen area for a big group of friends. Definitely made our trip to Iceland memorable! Best part was it's very close to a 24 hour grocery store thats literally 2 minutes away!! Great home throstur.

    naureen2017-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • A great home about 15 minutes outside of downtown Reykjavík. A very modern, stylish home that is incredibly well maintained and clean. The description is accurate and Throstur is a very responsive and considerate host. Home has ample sleeping space on both floors, three full bathrooms (two with showers, one with bathtub), and good common areas for eating, relaxing, and catching up with your group.

    Jason2017-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was very beautiful house with good service

    Anastasia2017-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is basically a palace, incredibly roomy, very clean and beautifully decorated. The area is really quiet and calm, the view from the deck is incredible. It's a short drive from the city so if you want to go in for drinks/dinner, it's super easy. I would definitely stay here again!

    Natalia2017-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Throstur's house for my dad's 70th birthday. We had 8 members in our family and really enjoyed our stay. The house is really beautiful and very comfortable- more than enough space for all of us. Throstur was very responsive and helpful during our stay. There's a grocery store and bus stop within walking distance, though with the kids we stuck to taking taxis back and forth from downtown Reykjavik. I would highly recommend this home and we would definitely stay here again!

    Susmitha2017-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Throstur's home is beautiful, spacious, and quiet. It had enough space for my group of 8 to comfortably stay for our trip. The house itself is clean, bright, with excellent views and many amenities. We had such a great time here! Would not hesitate to book again when we come back to Iceland.

    sherry2017-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Place was as advertised and more. Close to capital and far enough away for relaxation. Plenty of space for 7-9 people. Thanks Throstur

    Tommy2017-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • This home has it all. Great location, lots of space, amazing amenities (kitchen, hot tub) wonderful scenery and very convenient. Throstur was a great host and everything we needed was thought about. Our trip was definitely made more special being able to call this place "home".

    Spacious and open house in the suburb of Reykjavik with all amenities, next to nature, but only 10 min drive from the city center. House is 280 sqm (3.100 sqft). Perfect for a large family or even two families. Quiet surroundings. This property is a licensed Airbnb property for short term rental.
  • This was a great house, we (family of 6 and our 19 month baby) had an extremely pleasurable stay. The house is beautiful with amazing amenities, location was perfect and the neighborhood was beautiful. We didn't get to meet Gunnar, because we arrived late evening, but we got all instructions and access to the house by chat and notes. There weren't issues with access and staying. Great place to stay with a company or family. Would definitely recommend!

    Angeoline2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Our group was blown away with the space, especially the use of the hot pot! The space is perfect for a smallish group with our without children, was easy to maintain and is beautifully laid out. The hosts could not have been easier to work with.

    Ryan2017-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Det er en fantastisk dejlig bolig med alt hvad man kan forvente sig og lidt til. Beliggende i roligt kvarter og med udsigt til grønne områder. Vi boede der i en uge, to par samt vores barnebarn på to år. Der var rigelig plads til alle og legemuligheder for den lille. Hotpot var nem og hurtig at sætte igang og fantastisk at bruge. Faciliteter til tøjvask og tørring er helt i top. Vi mødte ikke Gunnar, men følte, at han var med os hele vejen. Vi havde kun et enkelt spørgsmål, og dette blev besvaret omgående. Vi kommer gerne tilbage.

    A large and beautiful house only a 15 minute drive from the city center. With 3 bedrooms, a comfy TV/cinema room, large kitchen and an amazing view from large living room windows with a great spot to view the beautiful northern lights when the conditions are right. Only a few minutes from an open area where you can hike or walk by the shore but still only a 10 minute walk to Iceland´s largest sports and entertainment complex! I can assure you won´t get bored staying here!
    There are three bedrooms in the house, very good kitchen and a living room. There is also a theatre room and a good yard. Parking space is included. Driving distance downtown is about 10-15 minutes. Within walking distance you have a convenience store and a large movie theatre, gym and ice rink are all very close by. My place is great for couples, business travelers and families.
    It's a cozy and quiet neighborhood and very safe. Everything you need is within a walking distance, whether it's groceries, fast food, cinema, bowling and even an outdoor geothermal heated swimming pool close by!
  • A very comfortable apartment in a quiet neighborough of Rejkyavik - 10 minutes by care from downtown - with equipped kitchen. Anna is very kind and accurate.

    Andrea Aldo2017-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great home close to the city.

    Jonas2017-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Anna's place was awesome. It was such a nice place to relax and rewind after our road trip around the ring road. We used the movie theater inside the house and it was awesome. It was very spacious and clean. Close to Reykjavik by car.

    Betty2017-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Anna's place is pretty rad. It's very clean, and plenty of room for everyone. Our group was completely satisfied with our stay there.

    George2017-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. We saw the Northern Lights from the balcony!

    Ming2017-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Suited our needs during a very busy time in Reykjavik. The hotels were ridiculously expensive so Anna's place was ok. Still expensive however that's the price you pay for the peak season. Satisfied the basic needs however more kitchen utensils, a microwave and functioning clothes dryer would have made the stay more comfortable. Is about 7kms from heart of town so rental vehicle is essential.

    michael 2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Anna was quick to respond to any of my questions. The house was beautiful and in a great location.

  • We had a lovely short stay in Iceland. The studio was larger than we expected with a separate sitting area with a view of the backyard. Johann was very nice and takes great pride in providing a positive experience. We had a car so his home was easy to get to-not sure how it would Be right back by bus but we could get there quickly after our days of exploring.

  • Gudrun’s place was fantastic! It was so comfortable and she was so easy to get in contact with. We felt right at home there. Very easy to get downtown from and she has a ton of great recommendations of places to go! I would definitely stay there again and I would recommend it to anyone traveling through Iceland and wanting to be close to Reykjavík

    Tabby2017-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Hi all, Gudruns' place is a beautiful apartment with own entrance and parking. Gudrun and her husband and family did not disturb us in any way, yet we knew if we had any questions they were available. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Located about 8 kms. from downtown Reykjavik, great view and parking. Close to grocery stores and pools. We rented a vehicle and a GPS locator, and were happy we did so. Gudron and her husband speak English as do most Icelanders, and drivers are very polite.

    Joseph2017-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Gudrun and Arni are a lovely couple, and we really enjoyed staying at their place. The apartment is much bigger than we expected, and it has all the amenities that we needed for our stay. While Gudrun and Arni were just around the corner if we needed them and very responsive to our inquiries, we had plenty of privacy and barely had to reach out to them, because the communication was so great. The bedroom is spacious and has a very comfortable bed, with snugly bed sheets and covers, perfect for the Icelandic autumn weather. The living room is very stylish and comfortable, and it's very well positioned in the apartment. The kitchen is equipped with everything one needs for a short stay. We had access to our own outside seating area, to enjoy the sunny days. Located 13 minutes by car from the city center, but far enough from the traffic, the location afforded a quick hop on the highway to visit the destinations we had planned to see. Arni's hospitality culminated with him sharing a secret spot where we could get the best view of the Northern Lights, without beating the crowds or the traffic, which was the single most breathtaking experience of our entire trip. My husband and I highly recommend you to check out this place.

    Ina2017-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic self contained unit, clean and very nice! Only a few minutes to downtown! Great people, great directions! Wish we had booked for more than one night!!

    Stacey2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is the ideal place to stay while exploring Reykjavik and the rest of the country. Your hosts Gudrun and Arni are absolutely lovely people who offer a very nice, cosy and fully equiped apartment in an upscale and quiet neighborhood, overlooking the city of Reykjavik. They also remain avaiable for any tips or recommendations about places to visit or dine. For a first trip experience in Iceland, I couldn't ask better for quality and comfort! As the apartment is located a few kilometers outside downtown Reykjavik, it perfectly accomodates the motorized travellers (private parking available). Without a single hesitation, I truly recommend this apartment.

    Igal2017-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little apartment right outside of downtown. Great spot if you plan of going out on day adventures and have a car as they have free parking and a washing machine! The apartment itself was perfect- very clean, spacious, and tons of big windows to allow ample natural lighting! We enjoyed making our coffee in the morning and winding down at the end of the night with some hot tea provided by our lovely host. The last night we were in town we wanted to go on a solo chase to see the northern lights and we were given the best tips to be able to stay nearby and still escape the city lights. I highly recommend staying here!

  • David was a great host and the house was very comfortable for 5 people. Very well equipped and lots of fun art on the walls. We loved being able to cook and eat both in the dining area and outside using the grill. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept well. The house was a 4 minute drive from a super market and an easy 10-15 minute drive to the city center, which made exploring very easy. People should be aware the water smells sulfurous in case that would bother you. It didn't bother us and we had a fantastic time in Reykjavik!

    Reykjavík, Iceland

    My home, Kristnibraut 12, is close to family-friendly activities and a golf course. You’ll love my place because of the views, the outdoors space and the location. My place is good for all adventurers. The room is cozy and very quiet, set in Grafarholt, a district of Reykjavik that forms part of the eastern suburbs. This is a quiet area of private houses. Bus nr. 18 stops 30 meters from the building. It passes both Kringlan (shopping) and Perlan (the Pearl Dome) on it´s downtown 15 min drive.
    This building (Kristnibraut 12, 113, Reykjavík) is built on one of the highest grounds in Reykjavík. That makes it stand very high and consequently you have a visibility over the capital city and lights from the city do not disturb so much as they do downtown. Instead you see the Northern lights much better. When the sky is clear, the Northern lights become visible. They usually appear around 23.30. Notice! you do not see them early in the evening and even though the sky is clear they sometimes do not appear. Step out on the balcony and take a peek.
    There are websites in english about Reykjavík city and routes to take. Google them. That will be helpful if you are not sure about our position. Visit the site: staeto . is The english version is quite good. Do type this: from HLEMMUR to Kristnibraut 112, 113 Reykjavík and see the route. This may help even if you have rented a car. The street map can be see very clearly if you zoom in. IMPORTANT!! Please study the pictures on the airbnb site to get to Kristnibraut 12. Many guest come and find it difficult to find their way if it is dark outside. You will probably not find many rooms in Reykjavík with a view like we offer. Go out on the balcony and take some pictures. If you stay on New Years Eve you will see all the fireworks at midnight. In case of emergency, there is a pharmacy 500 m. from the building. It´s open from 9:00 -18:30 (weekdays), Saturday from 12:00-16:00. It´s closed on Sundays. The pharmacy is only 10 meters from the grocery store.
  • Use the address given and u will get to the place in no time. Her apartment is right at the end, make sure u park to the left most car park after turning in. Do let her know if u want breakfast the night before so that she can start preparing. The bed is very comfy. There's a super market nearby.

  • The apartment is very clean and spacious, situated a bit in the outskirts of the city, but there is a bus stop (bus #18 going to the city centre) very close to the place. Be sure to purchase bus tickets on your way from the airport (e.g. in the city centre). The area is quiet and there is a lovely mountain view from the window, indeed. The breakfasts that Iris prepared were very rich and Iris was very accommodating as to the times and content of my morning meals. I also enjoyed the chats over the coffee drinking times! Iris is a very sociable and warm host, and I appreciated her insights into the Icelandic culture. The apartment is kept very clean and homey. I would strongly recommend this place for any solo travellers or couples.

    Stella2017-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Iris is very sweet, she really made an effort for us. The bed was super comfortable and the breakfast was simple but very good. Overall we can only recommend Iris' room.

    Daniela & André2017-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location, 10 minute drive out of the city. Very nice and accommodating.

    Zack2017-06-06T00:00:00Z
  • Iris is a wonderful host. Enjoyed my time staying at her place.

    Margaret2017-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We could not ask for anything more. The place is perfect, and Iris was super nice to us. She even offered to make breakfast for us, which was a total surprise. The house is super nice, the room is very clean and has an amazing view through the big window. In fact, the whole house got so many windows that you can almost have a 360o view of the surrounding. The apartment can be a bit tricky to find if you use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map, but Iris's pictures helped us out a lot. Just to clarify, from the last roundabout you would make kinda a V-turn into Kristnibraut, then immediately turn right into the apartment, and the rest just follow Iris's pictures. We would definitely come back and stay here again in the future if we visit Iceland. Highly recommend to anyone!

    Trung2016-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • One of the greatest place I've stay at. It was really quiet and home feeling. We really appreciated the breakfast in the morning. I had forgot my phone at the dinning table and Iris came to the window yelling if that was my phone. I really appreciated that. She was also very nice and kept reminding us to wear warm clothes as it'll be really cold at he places we were visiting. We loved staying at place and we would definitely stay there again.

    Riddhi2017-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • The bed was nice and spacious for 2 people, powerful heater for if you are cold, nice shower and the breakfast was great. All around winner.

  • Vidar's place is great. Excellent location on the start of the Golden Circle. Be aware that the bathroom for guests does not have a bath or shower so if you need to shower you will use the one in the hosts bathroom.

    Madeline2017-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Vidar and Olof were friendly and quiet. Guests get own washroom and use shared shower with hosts upstairs. Although not the most convenient set up it was fine. I would recommend anyone just needing a place to spend the night to book here.

    Delia2017-04-01T00:00:00Z

  • The house is located away from the city center and offers a nice quiet change away from the loads of tourists. The home is beautiful and our hosts were incredibly kind, welcoming and quick to commincate. We slept incredibly well in their guest bedroom. Their dog is also incredibly sweet and kind. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

  • Fjola was such a lovely host. We were exhausted after hiking and exploring all week. She was a kind and easygoing host. The bedroom and bathroom was very clean and cozy. We can never complain when there are doggies to play with. :)

    Madison2017-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Fjóla's place was lovely. There is a Bonus, gas station, and cafe/bakery right next to her place. I know a bus comes through the neighborhood, so if you can't rent a car, you can ride the bus. Her cat Gizmo was waiting for us when we arrived and is super sweet, as are her dogs! If you love pets and friendly hosts, this is the place! Definitely was a great first place to stay in Iceland.

    Victor2017-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Good apartment for a young couple to stay at but not ideal for 2 people who need a level of privacy as there is no door on the bathroom. Also no stove, just a one-burner hot plate. Bed is quite comfortable but the pull-out sofa is hard as a rock so it's better if both people are willing to share the bed. I stayed here with my senior father and it was less than ideal. Great neighbourhood and good communication, easy check-in.

    Jill2017-09-30T00:00:00Z

    This home is decorated it a very cozy style to make it warm and welcoming. Lights can be controlled to create a relaxing atmosphere.
    The area is very nice for people that love to walk or ride a bike. Good network of path where you can choose from a quiet walk in the cemetery, enjoy the view on the path next to the seacoast or just follow the winding paths around the neighborhood where many playground can be found.
  • It was a great stay. We are looking forward to our return when we circle around the country! :) They were very accommodating and the apartment itself was perfect for the six of us. It was very spacious, clean and we felt at home. We had a car so it was very accessible to drive downtown. We didn't get the chance to meet Orvar, but we hope we do on our way back. Erla was an amazing hostess and very friendly - 100% recommend. We had problems with our car and she was the first to call the rental place and tell them to replace it. She went above and beyond. Thank you guys so much and see you in two weeks!

    Theresa2016-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • The house is clean and comfortable, and Orvar's friend is very helpful and friendly. I enjoy living here verymuch. It will be perfect if there is clothes dryer in the apartment.

The location is a 25-35 minute bus journey away from Reykjavík which is not a problem if you have a car, and isn't really much of a problem if you don't have a car either. Also it's a five minute walk from alcohol store and discount supermarket. Would recommend!

The location was slightly further out than we were expecting but that was because we didn't read the listing properly. Iceland is also lovely, and this place provides a fantastic base from which to explore the country. Thanks!

It is close to nature, many hiking trails, swimming pool, golf course and the centrum is only twelve km away. A bus stop is only five minutes away by foot.
  • Welcomed by Holmar family and we enjoy the comfortable apartment. The apartment is closed to 24/7 which is good for late night supply. We enjoyed night stroll in geldinganes to view the esja mountains.

  • We would highly recommend this location and these hosts. It is much more beautiful than you can imagine or see on the photo, It's nice that it is outside of town but not far away. We only wish we could have stayed longer. Our hosts were so kind and helped us with their suggestion for the best itinerary with the time we had. It was a wonderful itinerary and so memorable. The apartment was clean and perfect.

    Shelagh2016-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment from Holmar and Beyond is was absolutely perfect. The location was great and perfect for getting to downtown easy as wells as reaching parts of the West and South quickly. They provide all the amenities that you need in an apartment and it made for a great home to come back and relax in when we were done with a long day of hiking. Holmar was incredibly helpful and responsive and provided some great suggestions for things to do after our flight got in super early in the morning. We would definitely recommend staying here if you're planning a vacation to Iceland! Thank you for such a warm and welcoming experience for our first trip!

    Samantha2016-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Hólmar made us feel welcomed in Reykjavik and in his apartment. He cared for us in any possible way. The apartment is exactly like in the photos. It was very clean, enough space for four people and very cozy. We couldn't have had a better way to start our vacation in Reykjavik or in Iceland in general. The neighborhood is awesome, very quiet, nice and peaceful. Everyone's warm-hearted and kind to others and to strangers/visitors. You are very close to any kind of grocery stores, gas stations or public transportation. Hólmar gave us many useful tips what to do and what not to do in Iceland (thanks again, it helped us a lot). For a next trip to Iceland I would definitely go back to Hólmar's place.

    Jason2017-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was great! The apartment is walking distance from a 24 hour grocery store, coffee shop, and a Bonus grocery. The apartment had lots of maps and attraction brochures which helped us throughout our travels of Iceland. The beds were comfortable with plenty of extra blankets and pillows available. Lots of closet space and shelving in the bedroom. The apartment is about 45 mins from KEF airport and we had no problems locating it. The wall between the bedroom and living area does not extend fully to the ceiling so there is limited privacy for groups larger than two people and sound carries very well between the rooms. I would recommend this Airbnb!

    Shannon 2016-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Holmar and Bryndis' place. The apartment is very clean, very well equipped, close to amenities and easy for access into and out of Reykjavik. Holmar was very helpful in accommodating an early arrival as well as kindly offered to help us find a place to stay when we were considering altering our itinerary. He also provided a lot of helpful information for getting to the apartment and responded very quickly to queries. I would highly recommend Holmar and Bryndis' place!

  • Anna is is wonderful person and her home is spacious flat that is both cozy and stylish. The Room is exactly as described and was very comfortable to sleep in. The neighborhood is very friendly and there are a few shops and restaurants right near the bus stop. This is not more than 150 meters as the crow flys and was priced quite modestly. I plan to return here in the future.

    Jon Paul2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to meet a warm hearted host, who really takes cares about her guests...go and see Anna. The place is cosy and quiet, only 30 minutes away from BSI. To all guitar players: Anna enjoys everyone who plays a nice tune on her Hagstrom Isabella acoustic guitar from 1970. Hard to resist!

    Johannes2016-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Anna is an amazing host, probably the best host I've ever had so far. She's really nice and welcoming, she makes you feel at home as soon as you enter the house. I had a great experience in Reykjavik, I had 2 amazing days ! The apartment is well located, the bus stop is 2 min walk and goes directly downtown (about 20 minutes). There are some supermarkets 10 minutes walk from the apartment. The room is clean and really good, the apartment is really good too. Anna is available to answer your questions or give you some advice, I really appreciated it. I highly recommend this place, this is really nice to stay with Anna !

    Elodie2016-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Anna is a happy-go-lucky friendly soul who does her best to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Chatty with a beguiling smile, she'll go out of her way to help you out. Staying with Anna is a fine way of introducing yourself to Iceland, and you might get a haircut too! WiFi, free parking and funny stories included.

    Roy2016-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Anna was very welcoming and made every effort to accommode me. Also Anna went out of her way for her other guests when they asked for assistance. Anna's place was a good stay; offering me a reasonable sample of life in Iceland. The puplic transport system (no 6 bus) worked extremely well and there are shops nearby.

The room is comfortable and quiet, with good window blinds (important as it doesn't really get dark in Iceland this time of year) and car parking outside. Anna helped us with ideas on things to do and see while we were there. Thanks for a great stay.

  • Anna is one of those truly lovely, kind people in life. She will go the extra mile to make you comfortable. Her apartment is about 15 minutes from Reykjavik, in what I would describe as a suburb, even though it's considered part of Reykjavik. And there aren't really any restaurants close by. So it's best if you have a car. But the bed is comfortable, and even though five of us (in three rooms) were sharing a bathroom, it worked out. And again, one of the best parts is meeting Anna. If you would like to experience the hospitality of an Icelander, I recommend staying with her!

    Marcia2017-06-03T00:00:00Z
  • List description was extremely accurate, and Anna and Tinna are wonderful! They were super helpful before and during our trip, in planning what we wanted to do and suggesting northern light hunting spots. The room was clean, as was the kitchen and the bathroom, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The neighborhood was very safe (right near an elementary school), and was a 2 minute walk from the bus stop. The bus into Reykjavik took about half an hour, and was very accessible. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and will certainly be looking for Anna and Tinna if we return to Iceland!

  • Anna's house is clean, tidy and lovely. The host is very helpful. There's a bus station nearby which is very convenient to go to the city center. But it's a little bit difficult for me to fix the house at the first day.

  • I had an amazing time at Anna's place. She was super friendly and made me feel totally at home. The aparment is well located for trips to the city and places around, more friendly hosts than Anna and her daughter are probably very hard to find! Thanks for those wonderful days!

    Lien2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Elisa's place was clean, comfortable, and convenient. We appreciated her info on local markets and enjoyed making our own breakfast and dinner each night with local salmon, chicken, etc. since eating out is so expensive in Iceland. The neighborhood was quiet and great for seeing the Aurora Borealis. We would absolutely recommend Elisa's place to our friends.

    My place is close to the coast and has a grait view over the see. It is in a nice and quiet neighborhood. Only 5 min walk to bus, but car is reccomended.15 min drive to city center. Parking place front of house. You’ll love my place because of beutiful nature surroundings . My place is good for couples, business travelers, and families. It is perfect for 4 people but 2 more can stay on the fold out couch/extra bed.Because of the staircage it may not be sutible for kids younger than 6 years old.
    The appartment is bright and open with high ceilings. I´m renting it out for my mother who is living in the countryside of the northen part of Iceland.Sometimes she comes for a wisit "helping out " if I need some assistance.
    There are very nice walking paths going around the neighborhood, and the swimmingpool is only 15 min walk away.
  • Prostur's place was ideal for our family trip to Iceland. We were there for four-nights. His apartment is about 7 minutes drive from downtown Reykjavik, very easy to find, and comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped and the beds are very cozy. It was a great retreat after a day of adventuring. Highly recommended.

    Genevieve2017-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great hosts and great property. Lovely view to the North from the windows. Easy to find and perfect location for visiting the town center, only 15 minutes away. Everything in the home was perfect. We would stay there again.

  • What a great place to R&R at the end of the day. Gorgeous view of the harbor and mountains. Very nice attention to detail in this home....nice towels, upscale appliances, all things in working order and well maintained. Owner very attentive to making sure we were pleased. Answer: YES! Great place!

    Dorothea2017-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house was fabulous! It was in a very nice location with great views. We loved that it was out of the city a little bit and very quiet. It was really close to a grocery store and had all the kitchen utensil to make nice meals. The neighborhood was great, clean and friendly. We would definitely stay here again when we go back to Iceland.

    Stefan2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Prostur (sorry about the spelling) was away when my sister, niece and I arrived after a disastrous arrival in a previous place. We were welcome by his mother Hanna (and her dog Brok) who even didn't wait to have Airbnb's green light to take us in. The house, located outside of Reykjavik's centre, dominates the bay. Our apartment was marvellous, spotless, with a kitchen with full amenities and a bathroom with heated floor. There is a mezzanine with a sofa-bed and a huge TV. The place is large, quiet, very comfortable and the view breathtaking. I would highly recommend it to anybody and everybody, but I would also recommend to have a car which makes life so much easier. Thank you Hanna and Prostur. We had the best of times. Danielle Benchitrit, Toronto, Canada.

    Danielle2017-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Prösturs House is Perfect. With beautiful views, super clean, great kitchen, nice bedrooms, great relaxing aerea, simply feels like home. We would definitely recommend it to our friends and would love to come again!

  • Our stay at Prostur's home was nothing but wonderful. The host was friendly and accomdating. The home itself was modern and clean. Spectacular views of the harbor and Reykjavik sunsets. It is close to the city center and all the main roads we traveled on our day trips. We would highly recommend Prostur's home when planning a trip to Iceland.

  • A beautiful and comfortable villa,large, bright, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. This exceeded our expectations-we enjoyed the outdoor hot tub, the sun-room, the well-appointed rooms and kitchen amenities. The beds were comfortable and perfect for all five of us. The location suited us well-a nice residential area, only ten minutes from the city centre but we did have a car so that made it a lot easier. Must mention the warmth of the hosts and the ease and speed of communication-touched when they even informed us about bad weather during our trip, and the host showed us the closest super market etc. Would definitely love to stay here again!

    Rasesh2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Apt was well equipped. Pleasantly homey feel to it. I was not accustomed to the 24 hr sunlight which was a bit of a challenge the first night getting to sleep. The curtains are not quite up to the task of blocking the light. I quickly adjusted and was quite comfortable. The furniture has a solid feel to it and lent to the feeling of a home as opposed to a hotel that I approve of greatly. The wifi was fast, easy to connect to and most importantly stable. The neighborhood is also fairly quiet which is nice after a long day of exploring. There is a small grocery store not far that I found convenient about a km down the road. It does, however close early. Andrea was flexible when we not only arranged to check in early, we showed up even earlier. The only curious thing was that we never met. All of our contact was through messages. I believe that Andrea was "getting out of our way". It was a nice gesture, but I would have liked to meet and say hi. Meeting new people is one of the reasons we travel. It was only odd because we met one charming young boy playing next door whose picture was hanging on the wall in the Apt. This led me to believe that Andrea and her family were in the next Apt. To be clear, it wasn't bad at all. Not even close. Just not what I expected. I enjoyed our time in the Apt and would not only return, I would easily recommend it to a friend.

    Robert2017-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • It was very nice staying in Andrea's apartment. There is enough space for your people and it is very comfortable there. Communication was excellent, check-in was easy and Andrea gave us helpful tips concerning horseback riding. Thanks for everything, we'd love to come back.

    Monika2017-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea's place was very spacious and had all the amenities you could ask for in a "home base" while exploring the country. There was a kitchen to prepare meals for day trips, and good Wi-Fi coverage. The location provided easy access to Reykjavik, the golden circle, and the ring road, with free parking to boot! Andrea was also very responsive and quick to respond via text. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to Iceland!

A nice quiet studio with the host right upstairs that worked well; a great place to go back to after a long day of traveling around Iceland.
