About Rurik Vatnarsson

We are a couple living and working in Iceland but like to travel a lot.

Rurik Vatnarsson purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Rurik Vatnarsson chose Reykjavik

We bought this house because we like the area, it is centrally located in Reykjavik so you are quick travelling in every direction and downtown.

What makes this apartment unique

This area is quiet and family friendly. A Mall and other shops are close by, bakery, pharmacy, cinema, ice cream shop etc. and also the emergency room and hospital. To go cycling from this area in every direction is convenient and a few minutes from the coast and the only beach in Reykjavik!

Great choice!

  • 5 of 5

Our flight arrived in the early morning and Rurik kindly arranged an early check-in. The apartment is just the right size for a couple, very comfortable and spacious. Location is not central, but downtown is a 5 minute drive. We used it as a base for 6 days and it worked out very well.

All The Comforts Of Home

  • 5 of 5

For those who don't want an ordinary hotel room, this apartment is a great place to stay in Reykjavik!!! Quiet, clean and comfortable, we looked forward to coming back here each evening after our day trips around Iceland. Will stay here again if we ever return to Iceland!

Right at home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Iceland for 5 nights and this apartment was exactly what we needed. Even though we were only two the apartment gave us so much room to not bump into each other. The water pressure was great and the sulfur smell doesn't linger. Location is a great base camp for a ten minute drive to the city center or a few blocks from the major roadways for a day trip. Parking is available and a gas station is 2 blocks away. The apartment felt like our own and Rurik is very nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone who isn't hell-bent on a hotel "room". Great experience !!

Spacious stay in Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

We found this to be a great choice while staying in Iceland for 3 days in November 2015. The email communication we had with the host, Rurik, was detailed and friendly. The apartment was even better than in the photos displayed, as a new large flat screen TV has just been installed. The apartment was comfortable and spacious, and had everything we needed for our short stay. A choice of supermarkets is within walking distance, and public transport is only about a block away. Would recommend to anyone travelling to Reykjavik who would like the option to stay somewhere bigger and nicer than a pokey little hotel room. We regret not having enough time to enjoy Rurik's offered use of the hot tub - would have been great to sit there watching the northern lights (which were very viewable from the apartment on our last night of November 3). Thank you for a wonderful stay!

This was a really super place to stay, close to downtown, but very convenient to leave town to explore too! Well represented in the pictures and it was also VERY quiet too! Very convenient to shops and bakeries. My husband and I are hoping to return again and we'll be certainly staying again! Excellent value too!

A great apartment in a great location for exploring this part of the island. Well equipped and very spacious at a very reasonable price. Would thoroughly recommend it. Hosts information and communication before our arrival was excellent.
