The apartment is perfect!
I had the opportunity to spend three months in Iceland at Kalli's apartments (Sept. - Nov.) as I received a fellowship to pursue research. The experience + apartment were unforgettably incredible!
Apartment #5 became my home during this time. Whether out in extreme Iceland weather and ready for the steaming hot shower and large, comfortable bed, or working at the large dinning table with large windows all day, this apartment was always a welcome and wonderful space I was happy to be in.
Systa's glass work and her son's photographs embellish the apartment walls. Incredibly inspiring and thoughtful artwork (both Systa and her son Damon's) brought life, spirit, comfort and a sense of personalization and care to the apartment. Simple, artistic, and equipped with all the necessary provisions (french press, coffee maker, or espresso maker as an example) it didn't take long to feel at home.
I was welcomed to the apartment on day one by Systa, a glass artist, who also runs the apartments. She was patient, helpful, and sincere. She sat with me and went over places I would soon frequent in the city and even helped me work out some Icelandic pronunciations. Systa responded to my emails in a timely manner and even occasionally popped by to say hello and make sure all was well. The entire family was a joy to run into!
Situated Within close walking distance to the city center I felt well positioned within the city.
If I could have taken the apartment with me when it came time to leave, I would have.
