I work as a project manager for a shipping company and like to travel a lot.
I play semi professional basketball and have done so for the last 8 years.
I like to keep my place neat, tidy and smoke free. I would love to hear from you.

Gylfi was an excellent host. He was very communicative/responsive, left detailed instructions on how to get into his place, and gave some great restaurant recommendations. His apartment was clean, comfortable, updated, and had everything you would need. Most important, the location was perfect! You can easily walk to the main attractions (old town/harbor, shopping district, bars/restaurants, museums, Hallgrímskirkja, Tjörnin), but the apartment is located in a quiet part of downtown. It was really ideal, and I would highly recommend Gylfi's apartment.
Very nice house located close (3 minutes) to the city center and just a minute walk from the Tjornin.
Also the BSI terminal (where the Flybus from the airport arrives) is less than 10 minutes walk from the house.
The atmosphere you feel, is like you are at your own home.
Gylfi has been a helpful host giving me all the info I needed.
I really reccomend this accomodation and to spend some days in Reykjavik.
Making the arrangements with Gylfi was extremely easy. We coordinated my stay with a few e-mails and the check-in/check-out was extremely flexible. The apartment is very well maintained and just a couple blocks from the downtown shopping/restaurant areas. I was traveling with my buddy, and we had more than enough space for the two of us between the king-size bed and the pull-out couch in the living room. Overall, the apartment worked out great and Gylfi could not have been a better host!
Gylfi was a wonderful host. Communication with email was easy and his reply time was very short. He even advised us to bring back our car in Reykjavik instead of Keflavik which was wonderful.
The location of the apartment is very convenient, close to downtown as well as the domestic airport and bus terminal for the buses to the international airport.
The apartment itself was very clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable and very big. The sofa was excellent - we really enjoyed relaxing on it.
After our tour around Iceland Gylfis apartment was the perfect place to spend some relaxing days before heading back home.
We will definitely come back one day!
Gylfi's apartment was wonderful, clean, tidy, and close to everything (downtown shopping, grocery stores, main bus station, etc...)
We had an incredibly comfortable stay there and he made sure that we had everything we needed and regularly checked in to see if we were all right.
Gylfi and his stylish, lovely, and cosy apartment definitely have our stamp of approval. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.

what could be better than staying downtown reykjavik and being across from the US embassy? gylfi was the best host in iceland. the place is clean. the bed is cozy. the man is quite accommodating. i'll be back.
Gylfi is a great host with a wonderful home. His apartment is centrally located (just a short walk from downtown Reykjavik and the BSI bus station) clean, and nicely appointed. A wholly positive experience, highly recommended!
Gylfi's apartment is in a picturesque and rather high-end neighborhood a few blocks from the old center of Reykjavik. It's easy to walk to restaurants, bars and places where people gather. The US embassy is a few steps away, so you get a 24-hour uniformed guard and a row of concrete bollards free with the price. Gylfi keeps a tidy guest room and a well-stocked kitchen. He, his girlfriend, and his cat are all friendly hosts.
My son hit the submit button before I was finished with the review, so let me just add a few things:
- Gylfi is friendly but not overly friendly. He has an appealing everyman quality like the young Henry Fonda. It's the soft sell, and he's got it.
- The apartment is simple, uncluttered and clean. Now I want to give away my possessions.
- The cat, Vafla (Waffle), is wild, playful, affectionate and entertaining. Up and down the walls. In and out the window. She pauses to head-butt you and make inscrutable demands. We wanted to take that cat home with us.
- Gylfi's girlfriend Beka (short for something unpronounceable) is easy to talk to and easy to look at. That's all I'm going to say.
- Gylfi can get very stern if you forget to lock the door. You will only forget once.
We had a great time. You will too.
This place was fantastic and a perfect location.
Gylfi was a great host.
Tara and Gylfi! Thanks! They took good care of the place and the plants...great Guests!!
