“Icelandic heaven”
Reviewed March 14, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed in the apartment for a week and it was a wonderful experience!
We highly recommend renting this apartment to anyone visiting Iceland. The owners, Siggi and Nanna, are very hospitable people, and treated us like family. For a very reasonable cost, Siggi picked us up at the airport very early in the morning and drove us back on the last day. The apartment rental comes with use of a car which is a great bonus since you need a car to get around this beautiful country. The car was well maintained and very reliable, and we drove it quite extensively to all the major nature sites - the Golden Circle, Southern Iceland, and the Snaefellsnes Peninsula without any problems. Take into consideration that Iceland is a very expensive country and gas, for example, costs approx. $8 per gallon!
The apartment has a full kitchen which we used for cooking our breakfasts and sometimes dinners, This is the way to do it, as food in Iceland is very very expensive. Everything in the apartment works like it should. You are located within walking distance of the Grotta light house which is the best place in Reykjavik to catch the northern lights (if they come), you can actually walk to the light house in low tide. Reykjavik is a lovely little town, very walkable, we strongly recommend doing the free city walk, very informative.
To sum things up - if you are planning a vacation in Iceland and looking for a place to stay, this is it! much better than any hotel, and you get to meet really wonderful people.

“Awesome from start to finish”
Reviewed February 16, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We booked with Siggi via this site having been to Reykjavic back in May. We did not stay here then and we really regret it. Siggis' place is huge, comfortable, extremely well equipped and just a very very comfortable place. The bathroom is spacious and I had no trouble in my wheelchair so if any wheelies out there are looking for a truly accessible property, this definitely ticks all the boxes. Use of the car was awesome too. The owners live next door and are very accommodating. Genuinely lovely people and a genuine bargain. If you're looking to stay in Reykjavik then this is THE place to book. You will not regret it. We certainly didn't!

“Fabulous base in Reykjavik!”

This appartment is in a lovely area on the edge of Reykjavik. Siggi and his family are extremely kind and welcoming and go out of their way to make sure you have a comfortable stay. Siggi offers the use of one of his cars included in the price ( if you are over 21) and even let us use his SatNav and mobile phone so we could call him if we got into difficulty! The appartment itself is warm, comfortable and well-equipped. There is a well stocked 24 hour supermarket nearby and we recommend you let Siggi collect you from the airport and give you a tour of some of the sights on the way back - cost 70 euros and well worth the price. þakka þér Siggi!!

“Great stay”
Reviewed December 30, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Siggi made us very welcome and the apartment was very comfortable.
We were visiting family so the car was very useful especially as the weather was poor ( it was December).
Siggi was kind enough to take us to the bus station (BSI) at 5 in the morning for our transport to the airport.

“Best way to stay near Reykjavik”
Reviewed December 6, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Hands down, this has to be the best way to stay when visiting Reykjavik and the surrounding area. Having an apartment like this and use of a car was just the best thing. We also had Siggi pick us up at the airport and we made a couple of neat stops that we would have otherwise missed. We also got to see where the nearest market and gas station were at along with the local pool. The car had a GPS so we could get around without burning through our international data allotment too. Apartment was clean and nice, and warm with the underfloor heating my wife really wants. We were in a nice quiet little neighborhood, away from the touristy area, but close enough that it was only a 10-15 minute drive back to the area. We could even see the ocean from the apartment. We will be going back to Iceland in the future, and we'll stay here again.

“Great hosts, great location, and comes with a car!”
Reviewed October 31, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The apartment is only 10 minutes from downtown Reykjavik, and 5 minutes from the grocery store. It had a fully equipped kitchen and dining room, so we were able to eat breakfast there every morning. The bedroom has a queen size bed, night stand, and closet for extra bedding.There are two fold out single beds tucked away in the living area. The living room has a huge sofa, several comfortable chairs.and a television. We loved the fact that it's only a short walk to the beach and lighthouse. There's also a walkway along the coast with stunning views.

Siggi was great to deal with..and has a great sense of humor! He picked us up at the airport at 7am, then gave us a tour of the town, pointing out highlights, and telling stories.We then stopped off at the local supermarket, so we could pick up some basic necessities.

The care we got to drive was a 24 year old Mercedes...which worried me a bit, but not for long.
Siggi is a mechanic and has been in the business of fixing cars for years, so this car was in great shape and performed very well!

Somewhere in the conversation with Siggi, we told him that this trip was our way of celebrating our anniversary. The next day he knocked on the door to give us a small anniversary gift! How sweet and thoughtful!
