  • Definition of cozy!

    "This apartment could not be more adorable and snuggly. The bed was super comfortable, and we loved being able to curl up on the couch and use the smart TV after a long day of exploring the Golden Circle. It's a really nice 15 minute walk into downtown Reykjavik, and the neighborhood is very peaceful at night. We used the kitchen every morning to cook breakfast, and had every utensil we could want. The one downside would be having to go out into the hallway (where it can be cold since there's a door to the outside) to get to the bathroom, but Erlingur provides robes and honestly, the shower head is so wonderful that you won't care about anything else. I also might recommend bringing ear plugs if you're a light sleeper -- the walls/ceilings aren't very thick, and it's clear the upstairs neighbors do not have carpets. Renting from Erlingur was absolutely wonderful and he was always very responsive to requests and e-mails. We would 100% stay here again if we ever visit Reykjavik in the future. This is the perfect little getaway for a couple that wants to avoids typical touristy crowds."

  • Extraordinary....in the most subtle ways....

    "We were totally jet-lagged when we arrived to the apartment; I was prepared for how petite this place is because I had studied the pictures and it was accurately represented...but my husband was not happy. We took a nap and then started to explore the neighborhood and that's when the "love affair" began between my hubby and this place! It is a small place, but the location is EXCELLENT. 3 blocks to the most fabulous bakery, coffee houses, spa houses, restaurants, shopping and a discount grocery store (called Bonus). But it is still a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle. The washing machine and dryer worked splendidly; so important as we were dusty and dirty after a long day of hiking and it was so nice to have clean beautiful clothes each day. Helga communicated very well when we had some confusion about the heaters. The rooms are well-laid out. The second bedroom has a very good trundle bed underneath. The twin bed above it and the master bedroom bed were EXCELLENT (yes, that word again); sort of firm/foam type of material. Our backs felt great after a good night sleep after hiking glaciers etc. Reykeyvik is EXTREMELY expensive and the food prices are eye-popping (more so than Paris and Turks and Caicos); for example, soup in a bread bowl is $19 dollars ! So it helped that we had a kitchen to make foods/breakfast and lunch. The bathroom was tiny but the shower was tall enough for my 6 foot 3 inch husband. The place had all sorts of thoughtful extras....plenty of pillows, linens, dishes, silverware, pots, pans. Most importantly, Helga was a caring and responsive host. My clothes were misplaced and I thought they were taken by accident from the dryer by someone else. Helga was so concerned about finding them and tackled the problem with humor and grace. I finally found my items (user error!) and Helga was gracious about my dumb mistake. Here's to Helga and here's to the tiny/yet well-equipped apartment that we cherished so much. My husband swears he wants an apartment that size now---he said "it just made life so wonderful because you can live in a beautifully compact way with everything was so close by.". All the buildings in this neighborhood had comparable sized apartments, so it wasn't really petite by local standards in the slightest (pardon the pun). Just a marvelous place if you want everything your heart could desire."
