“Excellent apartment and host”
Reviewed April 13, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We are a couple with a four year old boy. We stayed for 3 nights at this luxury apartment in Kopavogur. It is located in a quiet location with parking. A fantastic hot tub and everything you need is in the aparmtent.
The owners Petur and Fjola are fanstastic, very pleasant, helpful and friendly. We even had a nice surprise when we got in, we had a delicious cake baked for us and the fridge had already some food. That was very kind of them. So thank you for making our stay so pleasant and comfortable.

We give this property 5 of 5 stars.

“A delightful apartment with delightful hosts!”
Reviewed March 19, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Petur and Fjola's Apartment. The apartment itself was perfect with everything you needed. The hot tub was an added bonus and was great to use in the chilly evenings. We also had the pleasure of meeting Petur's beautiful Icelandic horses! The best part though was Petur and Fjola, they were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. Giving us advice on where to go and checking the weather for us as it was very stormy. The fridge was stocked with food so we didn't really have to buy much for our stay and Fjola's homemade pancakes were delicious. We plan to come back to Iceland again and will definitely stay here again!

“Superb Place!”
Reviewed March 11, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A group of four of us stand at this place for four nights and didn't want to leave!
The fridge was stocked up with a range of food and a freshly baked cake on our arrival which was lovely for the morning after to grab something before heading out exploring (cake was deliciously good!)

The room was comfortable for the four of us, one couple and two singles.

The hosts were AMAZING, was so nice to have such quality service. They were so friendly and caring yet respectful too. The call to check we were ok during the snow blizzard was very well received! (We were fine :) )

Great place, highly recomend

“Brilliant Apartment, in quiet suburb that was a home from home.”

Stayed in this apartment in August. It's very well maintained with all the facilities you could possibly want. Right away you feel this is a home from home and after a long day exploring or walking in town it was great to come back too.

Weather was stunning on our vacation and the apartment location is spot on. Located just off road 413 which is a main route and gives you quick access into Reykjavik and also out into the countryside. Plenty of local shops nearby and situated beside the tranquil Lake Ellidavatn.

You couldn't ask for nicer hosts than Petur & Fjola. If you need them they are there offering some great advice and local knowledge. They make you feel very welcome.

“Comfortable, welcoming and spotlessly clean.”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Perfect apartment. Everything available that you could possibly need. More like a home than a rental apartment. Unfortunately due to the weather we were unable to make use of the gas barbeque and patio area. However the hot-tub was great. Our hosts had even thoughtfully provided fluffy dressing gowns. A fridge full of food was very welcome as we arrived on a Sunday evening. I would advise having a car. We found our sat nav took us totally the wrong way with the GPS co-ordinates so make sure you get the exact address from the owner. We spent two hours driving around. Peter did everything he could to help us - even sending out his son to look for us (thanks Paul). Wi-Fi was great. Lovely surprise on the last night from the owners was greatly appreciated. Daughter enjoyed the cards, x and o's and ludo thoughtfully provided. If we come back to Iceland would definitely try to stay here. Lovely lake just down the road and bikes available to use. Highly recommended.

“Beautiful, comfortable apartment in peaceful area right outside Reykjavik”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

My partner and I enjoyed staying in this apartment. Petur and Gudrun are lovely hosts- they even greeted us at 3:00 am. They left plenty of food in the fridge, which we appreciated. The place is very quiet and you will really enjoy the hot tub. Good wifi connection and cable TV with plenty of English options. Grocery store is nearby and it is about a 10-15 minute drive to Rejkyavik. It is conveniently located for day trips to Golden Circle, the Blue Lagoon and easy to get back to airport. If you get directions from the airport to the apartment from Google Maps, make sure to get route numbers as well as street names- signs on the highways will indicate route numbers, but not street names, so it can be confusing if you are not prepared. We loved our short (4 1/2 days) stay in Iceland and our comfort in this apartment enhanced the trip. We would definitely stay here again.

“Perfect. Fully equipped apartment with very friendly owners in great location”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

people found this review helpful

One of the best properties we have ever stayed at. The property is ideal in almost every way and I would highly recommend booking it.

Despite arriving at midnight, the owners welcomed us and showed us around the apartment. It was very clean and very, very well equipped. The welcome package was great with plenty of food for us on arrival which meant that we could concentrate on enjoying ourselves on the first day rather than worry about how to find our first meal.
The apartment was perfectly sized for our family of four with a great shower and the hottub and nearby horses and lake were an added bonus. Everything seemed very new and everything including fridge, small cooker, toaster, TV, internet, coffee maker, microwave are all available. There are plenty of useful guidebooks and the apartment was very private, yet next door to the owners house for convenience as well.
In terms of location; Geysir, Gullfoss, Pingvellir, Blue lagoon and airport are all within one hours travel. There is a bakers, chemist and supermarket within walking distance of the apartment (or you can use one of the bikes provided). The nearby lake is a couple of minutes walk away.
Things to be aware of? The supermarket doesn't open until 11am but everything in Iceland seems to have slightly unusual opening hours Also doesn't sell alcohol, but again, Iceland has different rules on this. Neither of these detract from the property though, you will experience this anywhere in Iceland.
If you are thinking of holidaying in Iceland, do it as it's a brilliant holiday destination. And this property offers you plenty of luxury, a great welcome and a great location.
Many thanks Petur and Gudrun for providing us with a great base for an unforgettable holiday.
