Spacious and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This villa was perfect for our group of 9. The view was absolutely beautiful. Jón the homeowner was very responsive to our needs and requests. This was our first trip to Iceland and it was the most beautiful country I have ever seen.

Very nice home situated in a nice suburb of Reykjavík. Jon the owner is very accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

We had five in our group and the home was perfect for us. Owner even had someone meet us upon arrival at midnight! Jon was always available for any questions. He even made some great restaurant recommendations. We would definitely stay again.

Great place for our leadership retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented Jon's home for a 9-person company leadership retreat, and it was a perfect fit for us. The home is well suited for a group of colleagues to gather (plenty of room for collaborative work sessions but also enough space for us to spread out when individuals needed some alone time) and is conveniently located on the outskirts of Reykjavik. Driving into downtown was a smooth 15-20 minute drive. The home is convenient to nature paths and forests, so if you're into that sort of thing, just walk out the front door and you'll have access to a network of trails.

Jon was a great host who communicated actively and - after we told him strong internet was a necessity for our retreat - even went so far as to have an internet specialist come before our arrival to install devices that boosted the connection. Thanks for being such a great host and for letting us enjoy your home, Jon! I'd highly recommend it to anyone booking an Iceland retreat for a group of friends or colleagues.

Very good potential but got few surprises

  • 4 of 5

Few surprises:

- second bathroom was still under construction (only one usable toilet in the only bathroom)

- jacuzzi was not in function

- only 5 rooms (one of those 5 is an office space and does not have blackout curtains)

- no storage space in the rooms

- kitchen appliances were not clean from previous renters (oven, fridge, freezer)

- booking: this property does not use VRBO payment system, transaction needs to be done directly with owner (not easy when you are oversea in a different currency). It took us a good 30+ email exchanges to finally book the property.

On the good side:

- Properties is brand new and well equipped and should be awesome for a large group once the points above are addressed

- Owner is responsive and gave us useful. He also lend us his own car navigation system with favorites spots.


- very residential area, need a car to get groceries (20 minutes drive to Reykjavik)

- new housing complex, a lot of the houses nearby are under construction, so do not plan on sleeping in.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay Gwen. According to my listing the master bathroom was under construction but is finished now. Jacuzzi has been fuctional all summer but those who want to use it just have to ask me how it works. As for the storage space in the rooms there are 3 of them that offer storage space and also there is plenty of storage space all over the house. Your booking was the only one last season to experience a problem with transferring funds to my account. I dont know why but I would guess it was because of wrong payment method that you choose. You also might want to consider to pay me back the transfer fee that was deducted of the aggreed rental rate. As for your statement about that there are a lot of houses nearby under construction and therefor guests should not plan to sleep in!!! I really dont see where you are going with this Gwen. There is one house in my street that is not finished but it is far away. All you can hear here are horses and birds. Well I hope that you are good and that you enjoyed your trip. Jon
