Warm, cosy and feel just like home

5 of 5
The apartment was lovely and very center. Everything you could asked for. Very nice and spacious and cosy. It had all everything you would need,, fully furnished, tv, comfortable couch, 3 room, full kitchen, dining table, 2 fridges, kettle,... You would need to take anything with you. I would highly recommended you rent this place. Its a hidden gem. If I go back to Reykjavik, I have no hesitations in renting this apartment again. Its credit to the owners on how they've kept this place in such a great condition. Very enjoyable stay, Thanks Berglind and Luc

Outstanding property. What a fabulous apartment to stay

5 of 5
The whole experience of staying in this apartment has been great. It has been lovingly made into a home from home with every modern utility necessary. Amazing bathroom underfloor heating and wet room. The apartment is spacious and extremely comfortable. The apartment is centrally located in a very quiet modern complex and would definitely stay here again!!!
