My Husband, 8 year old, 4 year old, and myself just returned from a wonderful stay at this property. The stairs were a bit steep and I had the kids takes their socks off to go up and down them. Besides this, the house perfectly accommodated our family - the laundry and kitchen were a godsend and I liked that there is a door between the two bedrooms. The location allowed us to walk to everything - shopping, groceries, city centre, museums, and the excursions office is just down the hill - we didn't even need a car. Also easy was taking the bus to visit the swimming pool and the zoo. The house is well maintained, and well supplied with towels, cleaning supplies, and all the basics you would expect were covered.

We want to thank you for your hospitality. The house was extremely clean and well organized. Our family of 5 enjoyed the close proximity to everything the centre of Reykjavik has to offer. We found the local (Bonus) grocery store just steps away. In fact, after we left your house and moved to a hotel to spend our last 2 days near the Blue Lagoon...we missed the house immensely. Thanks again for your prompt communication before and after our trip.

Manager response: It was a great pleasure having such a nice family staying in our house and we thank them for their kind words.
Myself and a couple of my friends rented this awesome house for several days last week, and it couldn't have been in a better location. David is a great owner, and his son was very cool about bringing additional things over - even when it turned out we didn't need it. Cannot say enough good things, it's right in the heart of everything!

This quirky house is perfectly situated in the heart of Reyjkavik and ideal for two couples. We stayed here in Jan 2010 and it was still toasty and warm even though snow outside. There are a few kitchen items missing for those who want to self-cater e.g. no oven dishes, toaster or kettle, but no doubt this will get sorted out in time as it had been recently refurbished. We really loved it.

I stayed at the listed property with my wife and another couple in early September 2009. The house is as described with new furnishings and well appointed. The location was perfect. In two city blocks your are in the heart of Reykjavik. If I come back to Reykjavik I will stay here again. The owner of the house is charming and helpful. He assisted us with various requests and facilited arrangements for tickets to a World Cup soccer match. I remain, Scott
