Velkomin til Íslands!

We are fully booked for the summer of 2019. Now looking for offers for Easter and summer of 2020!

We live in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. We live in a quiet neighbourhood in an apartment on the fourth floor (top floor) with balcony about 20 minutes on foot from downtown Reykjavik (5 minutes by bus - the bus stops just a few minutes away). The apartment is 110 m² and consists of a living room, a well equipped kitchen, a study, a bathroom with a bathtub/shower and a washing machine and two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed, the other with a single bed and a sofa bed (for two). There are public swimming pools nearby, both indoor and outdoor, both with outdoor hot tubs. There is a shopping mall called Kringlan about 7-10 minutes away on foot (you can see it from our kitchen window), grocery stores, a few restaurants and a very good fishmonger close by. There is a nice little park called Klambratún on the other side of the street. In the park there is an art museum with a very good café. Downtown Reykjavik you will find a wide selection of restaurants and cafés.  
 
We have a 5-seater Renault Captur available to exchange. There is also a computer available for you to use and free WiFi. There is a gas BBQ unit on the balcony that you are free to use. Smoking is not allowed inside, so please use the balcony in case you are smokers.

You can visit many of Iceland's natural wonders (such as hot springs, glaciers, waterfalls) on a day tour from Reykjavík either by car or by taking an organised tour. You can reach many of them in 30-90 minutes by car.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you want any information about Iceland.
