We are a couple with 3 children age 2-10 and we live nearby. We like to travel and do most outdoor activities.
Karen left us the apartment on time, spotless, and with everything in great working condition. The apartment was fantastic; perfect for two people on a trip of ~5 days. Also, she gave us coffee, tea, milk, bread, and cheese upon our arrival which was great since we ended up eating at the apartment a few times. Having a refrigerator and stove was fantastic since we were able to cook some of the grocery food from Reykjavik and get a better sense of what the regular cuisine of Iceland was like. All in all a fantastic apartment and host.
Thank you very much for everything Karen. The apartment was perfect, very clean and close to everything. If we come back to Iceland, we will definitely consider to use this apartment again.
Lovely apartment. Very central. Out tour bus picked us up from the door.
Perfect base for a stay in Reykjavik. We were here for a long weekend to see the Northern Lights etc and loved this apartment. More than big enough for two people, not far from the main streets of Reykjavik and nice and quiet. Karen was a great host and had left cheese, bread, tea and coffee for us which was brilliant as our flight was delayed and we didn't get in to town until 2am! Would recommend this apartment to anyone who was coming to Reykjavik in a heartbeat!
Fantastic stay, all major sights easily walkable from the apartment.
A great little place right near the center of Reykjavik. It was very clean and the kitchen was easy to use. Karen even left a few goodies in the fridge for us! We had a wonderful stay!
Just got back from a fantastic stay in Iceland. Karen’s flat was perfect and added to the trip being such a success. The location is ideal, located on a quiet residential street its only a 5 minute walk from the start of the main high street. You couldn’t ask for more inside, great facilities, comfy bed/sofa bed and even some milk, cheese and bread for us in the fridge! Karen was incredibly helpful before the trip recommending places to visit and suggesting hiring a car (a must do for anyone visiting). She’s kindly written out a list of suggestions for eating out, supermarkets, things to see, which is in a booklet in the flat, we followed her advice and each was thoroughly enjoyed. Overall, we highly recommend this apartment and if we return, will definitely be staying here again.
We were 4 people renting Karens place. Karens appartment is the perfect place to be in Reykjavik. It is located very central. Very near the Hallgrim church and just a short stroll down Snorrabraut and you are in Laugavegur, which is the main shoppingstreet, with a lot of shops, bars and restaurants. The appartment is very clean and cosy and a very quiet area, even if the location is very central. Both the bed and the bed sofa were extremely comfortable. We rented a car and there was easy to find parking outside the house. We were hungry at the time of arrival and Karen had left some bread, butter, jam and coffee, so perfect. We never met Karen, but she was always available, both on sms/email and phone and easy to communicate with. Inside the appartment there were brochures and books about tours and Iceland, and the Lonely Planet 2013 edition. The supermarkets in Reykjavik closes early around 18:30, but we found a local supermarket with late opening hours near the church next to the Adams hotel. If you are going to Reykjavik, this is the place to stay.Thank you Karen.
Really nice place, not to far from the center and easy to park. Karen take care of her guests. Thanks !
We had a great stay in Reykjavik, which was enhanced by staying in excellent accommodation. Karen was incredibly helpful before the trip and everything was as advertised. We made excellent use of her tips and advice on eating out, supermarkets etc. We would highly recommend this apartment and if/when we return to Iceland we would all definitely want to stay here again. We were a group of 4 and found the space perfectly adequate and the sofa bed comfortable. Everything we needed was at our disposal. An excellent place to stay in a brilliant city!
