About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
The apartment is clean and tidy up to hotel standards with linen, towels and little extras provided.
The mattresses on the beds are new and care for your health. The kitchen was custom made by the same carpenter that build the kitchen for Bjork. The bathroom is modern standards. Personal music and book library, family furniture and eccentric items make the apartment cozy and warm and ideal for feeling like a local.
The house is a typical 1930s construction with 3 apartments, one on each floor plus a basement and a back garden. In the basement there is a washing room with washing machine. Young families live in the other apartments. The apartment is on the 3rd floor (counting the ground floor as the 1st floor) and has 2 bedrooms and a living room.
It is on Grettisgata close to the corner of Baronsstigur (google). The parallel street is Laugavegur. The main street of Reykjavik for shopping and walking around, enjoying street life. Still Grettisgata is local. If you walk up the road next door on the left there is a beautiful indoor swimming pool extensively photographed by artist Roni Horn. It is fully equipped with sauna, fitness equipment and outside chill area and hot tubs where you can gaze at the Nordic lights (in winter). Across the pool there is the local school with basketball court freely available to the public during the summer holiday months (May till August). Walking down Baronsstigur you first cross the Laugavegur, main shopping street before bumping into a 24 hours store and ending within few minutes at the seafront hiking route with its breathtaking mountain range across the bay. Another good place to spot the Nordic Lights. Other noteworthy amenities include Te og Kaffi bookshop and coffee house on the corner of Baronsstigur and Laugavegur; Bonus, the Icelandic discount food store, few minutes walk down Laugavegur; and Hlemmur, the main city bus terminal, few minutes walk up Laugavegur with easy connections to all the other places in the city.
Note that the apartment does not have a TV.

ATTENTION THIS MAP SHOWS THE APARTMENT IN WRONG LOCATION. VRBO HAS A BUG WHICH I HAVE ASKED TO BE REPAIRED.
The apartment is on Grettisgata downtown in the middle of everything, bars, restaurants, groceries, shopping. Use www.ja.is to find Grettisgata on a map.
2 minutes from main city bus terminal Hlemmur with buses to all the suburbs. 15 minutes walk to the BSI bus terminal with busses to the Blue Lagoon and airport. The swimming pool is next door and has sauna, hot tubs and fitness equipment. Down the street, 2 minutes is a beautiful hiking route along the seafront with mountain view. Up the road 2 minutes there is the Hallgrimskirkja church that towers over Reykjavik cityscape. The old bank down the street was recently converted into a nice bookshop café where you can enjoy croissants and expresso while checking out travel books.
Year Purchased: 1999
About: We are a family of four that live mostly in Berlin Germany. Our daughters are 6 and 3 year old. We stay in Grettisgata perhaps 2-4 months a year. The flat I´m renting out is the gem of my eye, my personal home with lots of love put into it. Treat it nice please :-)
Why Hlíðar, Reykjavík, Iceland:
This is the liveliest corner of Reykjavik. Ideal for a car free downtown lifestyle with its pedestrians and coffee shops.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Downtown and local! People are out and about. Everything is within a few minutes walk. People, culture, nature, transport, good food and expresso! The apartment itself is full of cozy character.
