We had an absolutely amazing time in Iceland. The apartment was more than what we had expected. Johanna was super responsive from the start and answered all the questions we had. She would check in with us via e-mail on a regular basis to make sure we were comfortable with her place.
Her apartment has two rooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with a kind size bed. There was also a third room, which is the kids room that is very suitable for families traveling with small children. The apartment was clean and had lots of natural light.
She even provided charger converters for travelers who forgot to bring their own and also a lot of maps and travel literature about Iceland, which came in handy during our trip. We really were able to use pretty much everything in the apartment, including her washer/dryer as well as the toys which was great for our 3 years old son.
The location of the apartment was also extremely close to the downtown center of Reykjavik. It's far away that you are not in the middle of the city noise and really get to experience the local communities but close enough that it's literally less than a 10 minute drive into downtown.
We definitely felt like the apartment was our home away from home and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Iceland.
We loved working with Johanna and greatly enjoyed our stay at her beautiful home.
Johanna's home is awesome. It is located in a close suburb of Reykjavik, so if you have a car, this is the place for you! Even if you don't have a car, it's easy to navigate their bus system. There was 4 of us (1 couple and 2 single friends) and Johanna was gracious to set up another bed for our 4th person to have her own bed. There were 3 bedrooms, so we all had our own space. She had also set aside some space for us to unpack and have our things while we were in our home.
Her home is well-kept and designed and very comfortable. We kept referring to it as "home" since it was so comfortable and welcoming there. We were able to save some money by making and eating breakfast in the morning because of the kitchen.
Johanna also worked with us since we spent a few days in the city, then 2 days on the road, then 4 days back in the city. We were able to work out an arrangement so that we could stay the second half back in her home.
She also had a guide upon arrival that directed us with basic information about the wi-fi, grocery stores in the area, etc. She thought of everything!
We would highly recommend booking with Johanna if you are planning on being in Iceland for any length of time. It was wonderful!
The apartment was great and ideal for a family, with a spacious living/dining room and good sized kitchen and bedrooms. Our two year old loved playing with Jóhanna's children's toys. There is a supermarket and a fantastic bakery within walking distance as well as a geothermal swimming pool, which is well worth a visit. We didn't try public transport as we had a hire car, so I can't really say how easy it is to get into the centre via bus, but if you do have a car then this is an ideal location to stay while visiting this fantastic country.
If you have a car, it is a convenient place to rent and discover the numerous landscapes around Reykjavik.
This bright apartment is spacious, very pleasant with a nice garden in the front and a terrasse on the side.
Johana has been very flexible, easy going and gave us good advises during our stay.
We would definitely come back here!
We spent two weeks at this wonderful, spacious flat in Kópavogur. The flat was well equipped and beautiful. The area is quiet and close to all amenities. The hostess, Hildur was ever so helpful and willing to make our stay as comfortable as possible and came around several times with play things for our 7 month old daughter and new household items she had purchased.
We are ever so grateful and happy with our stay and will definitely try and book this flat again next time we visit Iceland
Johanna was a great guest to deal with; friendly, fast and effective at communicating. She and her family knew what they wanted for their rental accommodation needs, which in turn, made it easier to try to meet them. I hope that she and her family enjoyed their stay in our villa and would welcome them back in the future.
