  • Lovely coastside retreat

    "I booked this location for a short stay where my friends and I could make a base to see the south coast of Iceland. Stokkseyri is a small town that relies on Selfoss (10km) for many markets and services. The town is even quieter and more charming a a result. The house is very well equipped and nice. Kristin and her parents are sweet and accommodating. They communicated well and provided much helpful information prior to and during the stay. The nearby lobster restaurant was a treat...the local lobster is sweet and tender and the lobster soup makes my mouth water even now."

  • very convenient and comfortable

    "My husband and I and our 2 young kids and my in-laws stayed here for a week. The apartment was bright, comfortable and well-equipped. There is one bedroom which is very separated from the rest of the apartment. The second "bedroom" is part of the loft-like space. It can be separated off from the rest of the loft-like space by a sliding wall. One thing that some people might not like is that the front door to the apartment is into this second bedroom. But I found it really convenient for slipping out to get croissants while everyone else was sleeping. The bed in this second bedroom is a sofa bed, but it is very comfortable, at least for small people like my husband and me. Our kids slept on a camp bed and pack and play respectively. The sofa in the living room also converts to a bed. The bathroom does not open off any bedroom (good for sharing) and has a bathtub, useful for travelers with little kids. The kitchen is small but well-equipped. We made both lunch and dinner at home almost every day, much more comfortable than eating out with the little ones. The only thing missing for us was a high chair or a nice fat telephone directory to sit the toddler up on. For food shpping there is a very convenient Monoprix on rue Sevastopol, and lots of little specialist shops on rue Montorgueil (open Sunday mornings). Our favorite croissants were at Kayser on rue Montorgueil, which also opens earlier than other bakeries (Patisserie Stohrer was closed for August). The apartment has a washing-machine. As typical in Europe, no dryer, but the drying rack and two fans did the trick, and with little kids, in-house laundry is your friend. The apartment is up 2 flights of twisty stairs, so not good for those with limited mobility. We'd brought a light umbrella stroller which was easily brought up and down. The apartment is very well located. We walked to Notre Dame, the Louvre, Pompidou Center, Marais, etc etc. For the metro, Sevastopol is the closest stop, but Chatelet-les Halles is also very convenient if you want access to RER and other lines. A few more tips for travelers with little kids: We loved the Jardin du Luxembourg (took RER) and the Jardin du Palais Royal (walked) as well as the park in Square du Temple. And surprisingly, the Louvre was a big hit, especially the Egyptian section. For the Eiffel Tower, in high season book online weeks in advance. We didn't, so we'll climb it on our next visit, hopefully soon!"

  • Great apartment!

    "My husband and I were in Venice recently to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and stayed in this wonderful apartment. From booking through to our stay, everything involving Eva was so helpful. She even had us met at the vaparetto stop. As first time visitors to Venice who had no idea where we were going, this was greatly appreciated. The apartment is fantastic - everything you could possibly need is there. Pay special attention to Eva's blue binder in the apartment. It lists where you can find everything - ATM, groceries, etc. and some really great restaurant suggestions. We had a wonderful meal at one of her recommendations - a restaurant right around the corner in a converted 15th century chapel. I highly suggest a meal here! Thank you, Eva, for helping to make our anniversary trip such a memorable experience."
