About Ulli Jonsson
We are the Jonsson family and have lived in London for nearly 25 years. We work from London but have a business in Iceland as well and therefore come regularly to Reykjavik for work and meeting up with friends and family.
Why Ulli Jonsson chose Reykjavík East
This is my family's holiday property when we are in Iceland. It's a perfect hub to get about Reykjavik if you do not have a car. Yet, there is off street private parking and plenty of free parking on the street next to the house. The house is in one of the first organised and architect designed areas in Reykjavik built in 1937-8. The building style is called "Funkis" which reflects a contemporary and practical style for houses of the era. It's a very warm and welcoming home we like to share with our guests.

Cozy and Clean Reykjavik Home
We had a wonderful stay in this cozy and clean Reykjavik home. The owner was very easy to get in touch with and super helpful and accommodating. The location of the home was perfect, centrally located but still a quiet residential area. Kitchen and rooms were well-appointed. Plenty of space for our family (2 adults and 3 children). Highly recommend this rental for a trip to Reykjavik!!
Perfect location and wish we could have stayed longer!

Staying in Reykjavík
We enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Very convenient to downtown. Very comfortable.
Perfect Location for your Iceland Adventure
The apartment was exactly as we had hoped, spacious, clean and close to all the action of Reykjavík. We didn’t need to use the car in the city once, we simply parked in the supplied parking space and walked everywhere. We did some sightseeing on the Golden Circle and went to the Blue Lagoon and Secret Lagoon, getting in and out of the city and onto the highways was a breeze. Communication with Uli was great and he always responded to questions quickly. I definitely recommend this place to anyone needing some extra space and a nice kitchen/bathroom in a central location in Reykjavik. We were a family of 5 and it was perfect!
Fun in Reykjavík
On the way to Finland, my family and I planned a 3 day stay over in Reykjavík and it was fabulous. The property is just as explained in the write details on VRBO. The apartment is closely situated to city center such that you can walk everywhere. My family of four and a sister were very comfortable with the living arrangements. AND, Ulli is very responsive!!
Great place and I will stay there again on my next trip to Iceland.
Great home in Reykjavik
We stayed at this property for two nights with our two teenage children. Ulli was very responsive to our questions and provided helpful information about the home and surrounding area in advance. He was also flexible with our arrival and check-in time, which we appreciated.
The home is very spacious and has a great layout. The ground floor has an entry vestibule, kitchen, dining room, and nice sized living room. There is also a back porch and garden. Upstairs are the three bedrooms (including one balcony) and the bathroom. This property worked very well for our family. We walked to shops, restaurants, and many of the attractions in the town. The property is right down the street from one of the locations of the Reykjavik Art Museum and Klambratún Park.
We would definitely stay here again!
The somewhat famous Hallgrímskirjka (the largest church in Iceland and one of the tallest buildings in the city) can be seen out of the kitchen windown and is just over 5 min walk from the house. By the church is a statue of Lucky Leif. The Viking who discovered N America well before Columbus did!
The harbour is about 20 min walk where you can go whale watching. The Harpan (Reykjavik´s operahouse is located on the east harbour. Well worth a visit for the unique architecture.
