This very stylish, modern apartment is within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The number 1 bus service into Reykjavík is only a 10 minute walk away, this also stops at BSI bus terminal which is the main hub of Reykjavík excursions making this an ideal location for exploring Iceland.
The apartment itself is surrounded by lava fields with views of the mountains very picturesque!! We thought the hot tub was a great addition after a long day exploring it was very relaxing!
Hilde and Axel were very accommodating and knowledgeable, making us feel welcome and at ease, genuinely lovely people!
This apartment really is a hidden gem we will defonetly be returning!
Thanks again for all your hospitality!
My 4th visit to this excellent apartment although my son and his partner had their first visit to Iceland and with the apartment I very close to pubs, restaurants so I never saw too much of them ( mainly in the hot tub ) or had to worry about them. I cannot recommend this apartment or Hilde and Axel with their knowledge of Iceland highly enough. I found myself and Isarr ( Hilde and Axel's son ) on the same wavelength :-)
We had the trip of a lifetime, and staying here made it so much more!! Everything you need is there, and the hot tub is amazing! Before we left for Iceland, any question, no matter how trivial, the owners answered graciously...kind of like having our own personal travel guide. Perfectly located!! Saw the lights right over the apartment
A wonderful apartment near the center or Reykjavik with everything at hand. The house was perfect and we (me and 6 friends) really had no issues at all. Hilde and Axel had been really kind, helping us with every sort of thing particularly with the travel planning and other stuff (like a crack in the windshield of our car, thank you again!).
This is a wonderful location just outside of Reykjavik, This stylish two bedroom walk out is nicely furnished right down to the appliances. Comfortable beds and seating in the living room along with a great entertainment system and selection of in house movies for the enjoyment of the time zone challenged travelers. Hilde and Axel knew we were arriving after midnight, as so many flights into and out of Iceland do and pre stocked the fridge with enough food to hold us over until the next morning. At which time we were able to walk the two hundred meters to the local grocery store. There are a number of bus stops equally close by if you are using public transportation. After a long day of exploring we came home to a hot tub filed with geothermal water right from the hose. The home is nestled at the end of a quiet street with easy access to the Hwy 1 loop around the island or a quick jaunt into the city for dinner. There are lots of restaurants nearby and only five minutes to the waterfront. The owners allowed us to borrow a cooler for our long day trips. The few minutes of down time we had were punctuated by interaction with the pet raven and kitty cats roaming about.
Great location to use for day trips to explore Iceland. Hilde and Axel went above and beyond and helped us with all of our needs. Would highly recommend staying at this VRBO.
We had an amazing trip to Iceland. The apartment was a little cramped once we added our luggage but the hosts were top notch which made the trip wonderful. Thanks Hilde and Axel!
