“Best place we stayed in”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was a great place to base ourselves for a visit to Reykjavik as it was a shorrt drive into the city and well placed to get out of it. Situatied in a quiet residential area, near a lake, this modern, luxury one-bedroomed apartment was perfect for us:well constructed; private; nicely furnished; spaceous with plenty of storage space and comfortable beds. The kitchen area is small but well stocked and we appreciated the food items left in the fridge for us. A delicious cake sat on the large dining table on our arrival. The landlord and his family were delightfully helpful and welcoming. My only worry now is that this accomodation will become so popular we won't be able to book it the next time we come!

“Above and Beyond!”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This was an absolutely amazing apartment, owned by the most thoughtful individuals. Not only did they offer to pick me up from the bus terminal, but there was food stocked in the fridge when we arrived and everything needed for a truly comfortable stay! The location of the apartment was perfect for driving into the city for site seeing, and also close to the Ring Road for traveling throughout the country! We had an absolutely wonderful stay and would recommend this apartment to anyone and everyone who is visiting Iceland!

“Warm Welcome”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

Petur and Fyola went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Petur was waiting outside to greet us when we arrived, and Fyola had stocked the refrigerator and even baked us a cake! They live right next door and were always available whenever we had a question or needed some advice.

We traveled as a family, mom, dad, and three children. The apartment holds five persons with the addition of a roll away bed, which did tighten space a little bit. The beds were very comfortable and we didn't want to get up in the morning.

The apartment was spotless.

The location is close by the ring road that goes around the entire island, so it is a good jumping off point for day trips.

“Excellent apartment and host”
Reviewed 13 April 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 19 March 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 11 March 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.”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

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.
