                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: My name is Jon and i have been living in Reykjavik for over 20 years. Before that i lived in my old hometown of Akranes. I studied Computer Sciences at the University of Iceland and later did an MBA program at Reykjavik University. I currently work for CCP, a large online gaming company in Reykjavik, Iceland. I have rented this property to travellers since 2008 with great success. I live in the same building which allows me to respond quickly to any request my guests may have.

                      Why the Owner Chose Reykjavik:
                      This is a unique property and one of the few modern buildings in the central part of town. The location is ideal with all sights and attractions in the centre within walking distance and yet the area is relatively quiet.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Some of the unique benefits of this property include the spectacular view from the top floor in all directions.
