"We stayed at our host's home for four nights during our first visit to Iceland. The cottage is even better than described and pictured; the bed provides a great sleep, the house is laid out beautifully (artwork is wonderful!), and the owner is kind enough to leave all you might need for your stay- paper towels, clear instructions for trash and tv, extra towels, etc.
I can't convey how ideal the location is. The cottage is a stone's throw away from a great coffe shop/cafe, a square with quick food and nicer restaurants, and the wharf. Reykjavik is easily walkable, and the cottage puts you in the best possible starting location for exploration. There is space for rental car parking, and the home feels like home- it is in the oldest part of Reykjavik and provides a modern feel while also allowing you to stay in a true neighborhood and a house with personality and history.
Our host could not have been more wonderful to work with as we planned our trip. She provided helpful info and was always speedy with her communication. She set us up for a great experience, and we had one! Many thanks."

"The home was very spacious and accommodating for our group of nine. We loved being able to use the kitchen, and especially the hot tub and sauna. The grocery store was right around the corner which was nice for the quick trips we needed. Very beautiful view out the back window and places to walk right in the backyard. Would highly recommend this home."

"I just recently returned from a 6 night stay with 5 friends. The apartment is the perfect size for a group of 5 to 6 adults. We were much more comfortable than we would have been staying in a hotel because the apartment had everything we needed including a washing machine. Location wise, you couldn't ask for more....it's within walking distance to 2 of the best restaurants in the city not to mention all of the local bars and shops. Yes, it is noisy on Thursday night - Saturday night but so is any downtown area. The locals party hard.
Burkni was extremely accommodating and let our group not only check in early after a long flight but he also let us check out late. He also gave us some great tips about local places to eat and drink and also clued us in to a site for tracking the Aurora Borealis. If I'm lucky enough to visit Iceland twice I would definitely stay here again."
