We felt very lucky when we arrived to have picked such an amazing apartment, modern and spacious and equipped with everything needed, and incredible views from the rooftop. Would not stay anywhere else if we visited again.

Nothing missing so it really was a home from home. Sofia the owner has also made sure that the apartment is equipped with all the little household essentials that a short stay traveller might need but wouldn't/couldn't/didn't bring with them. Warm and cosy - genuinely somewhere you would enjoy spending time. Location is perfect - within 10/15 minute casual walk of the old town and close to supermarkets/restaurants etc. This apartment made our trip over the Christmas really enjoyable. We had a small issue with the wifi password and mailed Soffía about it - she and her partner called in to the apartment about 20 mins later to help us sort it out and then stayed and gave us a load of information on where to go and what to do in Reykjavik - a very nice touch. If you stay here (and you'll be glad you did if you do), you really should try the hot-tub on the balcony - whatever the weather - it's a bit of a special experience - particularly if it's snowing which it was when we used it. 2 adults and 3 kids ranging from 11 to 16 years - plenty of space with lots to do. It was a really good experience and if we ever go back to Reykjavik, we'll definitely look to stay here. Enjoy!

My husband's family flew in from Scotland and we flew in from Boston. Vilborg decorated the house, put lights on the staircase and even bought our Christmas turkey for us. The hosue if superb - located in a perfect location with easy access to shops and major roads. Thank you, Vilborg, for making our holiday so memorable! The Kemp Family
