About Helga Sigurdardottir

I am a Icelandic women who lives in Norway. I have two apartments in Iceland which I rent out for tourist. I travel often to Iceland to stay with my family and friends. Often I have tourist with me so I can show them my beautiful country which I love so much. I really love staying in one of my two apartment. They are close to everything in Reykjavik. Only few minutes to restaurant, museum, cafes and shopping. For me it is very important that my renters have a wonderful stay in my home country and that the have everything their need in one mye two apartment.

Helga Sigurdardottir purchased this apartment in 2012

Guestbook comments from the manager

My second time in Reykjavik and this is my new favorite place to stay. The apartment was clean, modern and in a great location. The heated floors and heated towel rack made the stay even better. Helga was easy to get ahold of and everything went smoothly from the airport pickup she arranged for me to checking into the apartment to departing. Next time I am in Iceland I will definitely try to stay here again.

Great week in Iceland

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well kept, perfectly located apartment. Just blocks from harbor, food, drinks, and bus stop#4. Perfect hub for a week in Iceland to spoke out to various places. Great for a week for myself and teen son. Owner was always responsive if needed, unit was as promised, really enjoyed the week here!

Great location, clean modern well-equipped and fab host!

  • 5 of 5

Two of my girlfriends and I stayed at Helga’s apartment for 4 nights in March for our first visit to Iceland and we were very impressed - one of the best apartment rentals we have been to. Helga was super helpful right from the beginning providing lots of useful information, very quick to get in touch/respond. The whole process was seamless and very easy. The apartment had everything we needed to cook each night and is in the best location right by the harbour and near all the bars, restaurants and shops. Even the sofa bed was comfy and easy to set up every night! Would 100% recommend staying here.

Wonderful apartment, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a real gem, in an excellent location. It is absolutely clean, modern, spacious, well-kept, well-stocked, and all in all, terrific. It is on a quiet street, less than a block from the edge of downtown Reykjavík, and around the corner from the harbor area. It is in a beautiful, modern, secure building, with an elevator. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need for a home stay-we wound up eating in several nights, unexpectedly, because we were tired and had picked up some incredible bread (Bread and Co - oh my goodness…), cheese, and olive oil, and were perfectly content to sit in the apartment and enjoy it. We made breakfast at home most mornings, in the fully equipped kitchen, which we discovered has both a regular electric drip coffee maker and a Senseo pod machine. Helga was easy to work with, and we really did not have any needs while we were there. All in all, highly recommended!

Great location and comfort.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Black Pearl apartment. Helga let us come early, so we didn't have to store our luggage anywhere. The place was warm, bright and comfortable. The location was perfect, close to the bus stop 4, attractions and restaurants.

Great Apartment and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 days in Helga's apartment in January. The apartment is nicely furnished and the kitchen is very well stocked. The bathroom is great, with a really hot and strong shower, which was great after coming out of the snow and rain. Helga was very responsive to our requests and comments. When there was a problem with the internet she quickly sent someone over to fix it. The apartment is very close to the waterfront, downtown and many restaurants. It is a very short walk to one of the bus stops for tours and a short walk to the main shopping street. Really a great location. I highly recommend.

Nice apt in city... easy to get everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice stay in the apartment. It was clean, and just as it appears in photos. It is not a big space, but it had everything one would need! We were a little concerned that it was further away from some of the attractions in the city, but when you get there, you realize how small Reykjavik really is. From this apt to the big church is probably .8 mile... so everything is close by.

Bus Stop 4 is the closest and it is about 3 blocks down the street. Easy to get to. Also, Reykjavik bus system is easy to learn and has a great app. Use it!
