Me and my partner stayed here at the end of September into October in the 20m sqr apartment and it was more than adequate. The place is just the right size for two adults and has everything you need, and if it doesn't the very hospitable owner Gudrun will get it for you. The beds are very very comfy, there is a little table to have breakfast on, the shower is very powerful and very warm, perfect for when you have been out in an Icelandic day. The kitchen has all the utensils you need to make breakfasts and other big meals, and the oven is great, we made cakes in it perfectly. The surrounding area is very picturesque with the mountains behind you and views out to the sea in front, and no noise at night. The distance to Reykjavik was perfect for us as we had a hire-car, the capital was only a 15 drive along the coast road, but if you don't have a car, there is a bus-stop too a 5 min walk away from the apartment that can take you to Reykjavic and drops you off on the docks right where the City Centre begins and where all the tour buses and excursions start from.

As much as the apartment is amazing the best thing about this place is Gudrun the Owner and her husband Jan and Family. They will do anything for you to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Even before we arrived she emails you asking if you have any questions or need help with travel arrangements, she is truly a gracious host. I told her I was wanting to try the native delicacy Hákarl, little did I know she was an expert and she went out and got me some to try! Gudrun is also well known in the locality and can get you money off at the local Alafoss Café, she also has in-depth knowledge of Mosfelbear and can give you any advice you need be it supermarkets, swimming pool or even where to see Icelandic Ponies!

All in all our stay in Iceland was made perfect by Gudrun and her apartment, and if you have transport to get out of Reykjavik then this is the place for you, plus it is the cheapest in the Capital Area by a long way! I couldn't recommend this more.

We did not have trouble finding this place since we had GPS computer program. There is road construction going on, changing road... so be aware.
The location is perfect to explore major attractions- the roard to Golden circle is just up the street, Reykjavic is less than 20 min. Away. Grocery store, liquor (you can not buy alchohol at grocery store) and bank (Bannkin). The house is built into a hill- the owner family live upper floor and there are 2 rental units with separate entrances. We stayed in a small studio with shower and tiny but well equipped kitchen. Go take a look before you shop-no need to buy and waste salt and pepper. Gudrun (one of owner) is so sweet and kind, she will make sure you will have a fantastic stay! She even baked us a delicious bread to take along.
The place is still in "progress" but her kindness will fill in whateved is missing.
The WiFi worked good so not having English TV did not bother us. Thank you, Gudrun, so nice to meet you.

“A great stay !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

A great great stay near Reykjavik.
We stayed two weeks.

The studio is very quiet and clean.
Everything needed is there, and if something is missing, it's possible to ask Gudrun, the owner.

The kitchen is well equiped.
The bathroom is large and clean.
The beds are nice and comfortable.
The wifi access works perfectly everywhere, even in the garden where you can relax.
There are a lot of supermarkets and stores at less than 5 minutes by car and it's about 15km away from Reykjavik.

Gudrun is a very very smiling and kind person, she shared a lot of information about what to do and where to go with us.

A great great stay at a reasonnable price, we highly recommand this place.

Great ! This is my second stay here at Gudrun's studio apartment.
I really enjoyed the quiet and the calm atmosphere in the studio apartment.
When I arrived the place was very warm and so clean and tidy. So I felt very much at home again.
Gudrun was incredibly generous, kind and very thoughtful with her time and intentions to make me feel good and welcomed.
I will be back. Thank you so much Gudrun. Your studio apartment is my favourite place in Iceland.

thanks for everything Gudrun!
Two nice, very clean apartments a short drive from Reykavik. Stayed in a few different apartments while travelling around and this was the best. We stayed in the smaller of the apartments, small but well setup it was very comfortable.
Lovely lady owner who treats guests as she would want to be treated.
Everything you need is very close food etc.
Viewed the Northern lights the second night we were there, (bit lucky), but all we had to do was step outside the door, so you can keep checking all night.
We stayed for a couple of weeks, and loved it.

We loved staying at this cosy apartment. It even had a great view of the ocean and mountains. The owner was so friendly that it made me feel as if we have known each other for years. It is a short drive(10-15 min) to the city center of Reykjavik. The town geothermal pool is amazing and a lot cheaper than those in town. It was a great stay with our little one too, she loved playing outside in the yard. I definitely recommend staying here. If you are looking for a clean, convenient and budget friendly place, look no further.
