Elsa was totally reliable and helpful. We had issues with the online paying but thanks to her we could still book the place. The apartment looks exactly like on the pictures. Cozy and spacious. Cannot wish better location. Elsa provided us with lots of info before our arrival (including restaurants, stores...) which was very helpful!!! I would highly recommend this place!!! Hope I will have the opportunity to meet her once personally:)

Great place and great location.

5 of 5
We loved our week's stay at this apartment. The location is lovely, with a supermarket and cafe close by. It's just a short walk to the sea and the city centre is about 15 minutes away on foot. The apartment itself is spacious and comfortable. Gisli and his daughter were very friendly and helpful if we had any problems. There is plenty of cupboard space and the main bed is a king size and comfortable. The walk-in shower is very nice. There is no TV but we honestly didn't miss it. We would recommend this property to anyone.
