Great Location if you have a car
We stayed at this place with another couple and the size of the unit was great. The views were fantastic and there's some bakeries and coffee shops minutes down the road. There's a neat vibe in the place but we were only really using it to sleep and shower.
It has not been kept in great condition as is evidenced by the damage and weathering around the house. Check in was fairly simple although I'd suggest a welcome document or email further in advance like some other hosts. We arrived early to find someone there cleaning the house which was nice but I think like the damage mentioned above, it hasn't always been kept in the best condition and therefore didn't always feel clean.
I'd recommend it to people passing through but not if you're super picky about the condition of the property.
Great location, but not well maintained.
The property is in a great location-gorgeous view, easy drive to downtown, local park and grocery store. That part was perfect for my family’s stay. However, upon arrival the house was not kept up very well. There was food in the sink, dirt on the floor, crumbs on counters & tables, dried toothpaste in the sink. It obviously had not been cleaned prior to our arrival. We even arrived a day later than our initial reservation (which I made the owner aware of a few days in advance -with no refund-so there was plenty of time to clean). There was also only one towel for my family of four to use for the week. I contacted the owner & sent pictures. The food, dirt, etc was dismissed and I was told “I’m sorry it was not perfect”. I wasn’t looking for perfect. I was just looking for clean. I was also told that someone would bring us towels as the owner was out of town. We never received them. With just a little extra attention to cleanliness & basic supplies I would give this place a much better rating and highly recommend it to a friend.
Very Disappointed, Needs some work
We arrived at the condo about 4:30pm. The owners son greeted us. He basically let us in and left after saying something about sheets and not being the correct size and they would be ready in a couple of hours. Beds had not been made, although sheets were thrown on the foot of each bed. I am not sure if the towels in the bathroom were clean, as they were thrown on the side of the sink and thrown haphazardly over the towel warmer. After I expressed my concerns,
He did come down and help make the beds and took the towels, but did not replace them. I had to ask.
When I asked about the wifi code, I was told to look on the router and that the code should be there. A plastic bag of air fresheners was left on the kitchen counter, not sure why but the condo does smell musty. There was only 1 partial roll of toilet paper and no garbage bag in the kitchen. We would had loved to sit outside but it had rained and all the cushions were left out and were soaked through. Did not see a BBQ for use.
The closet door fell off and hit my mother, luckily not injuring her. I emailed the owner about this and the response was " I am sorry to hear about your mother and the closet door, never had that happen before."
The handle for the shower control was broken, as I had read in a review from a year ago, and it is still not fixed! There was no curtain in the bathroom window so the neighbours could have a full view of someone in the shower! Some electrical work needs to be done, as does some general maintenance. I think there was 1 channel we could get on the TV, everything else said unavailable, no ice cube trays in the freezer.
Lots of little things like this that may seem petty but need to be taken care of.
It was in a lovely spot with a lovely view. Just needs some work.
Unfortunately, when I return to Iceland, this will not be on my list of places to stay.
Beautiful view and a very nice apartment!
A great location, beautiful view, and a nice, big apartment. I would stay there again.
The view was beautiful, but the unit was older with many general maintenance issues including broken handle on dishwasher/shower control, missing trim, etc. of which we took pics. Fortunately, we were able to contact the owner who provided us with an alternate accommodation.
