  • Good location, good for kids, clean and bright.

    "We rented this property for a week primarily because we have a toddler and it had a kid's theme and bedroom. Having a bedroom for the kid separate from ours and with a door means he could sleep on his normal schedule and that made all the difference. The kids room is just a bonus, with toys and books. There were plenty of kid's programs on Netflix as well. So that was a huge thing and was greatly appreciated. For the grown ups, the apartment was well located near the Laugardalslaug pool complex which is 2 mins down the street and a great way to wind down after a busy day. It was close enough to downtown but not too close. We could still get out of the city to our day destinations pretty quickly. The kitchen is clean and useful and we made many of our own meals which is good considering the price of eating out. It also allowed us to eat more healthy and the kid was able to eat familiar food. Happy kid, happy parents! The apartment was clean, freshly reno'd and very comfortable. Overall we were very happy staying here. It was very smooth and I wouldn't hesitate to return."

  • Highly recomend staying at Helga"s lovely home

    "The apartment was neat, spacious and had everything we needed. It was within walking distance from a few Restraunts and a small grocery store. We would absolutely stay here again. The place is quiet which we loved. Parking was easy and Helga was absolutely trustworthy and assisted us with reserving the booking."

  • 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."

  • Perfect

    "We have rented all over the world but I am always a bit nervous before arriving. No need to worry. It's exactly as described, immaculate warm and clean clean clean. Great location; in the heart of the tourist area-great restaurants and shopping nearby. Picture perfect and made our stay even more enjoyable"
