My family of 4 just stayed here and it was wonderful. Roald is an exceptional host - he was very responsive to our questions, the place was ready to go when we arrived (we used the sofa bed and a cot which were made up nicely) and he had perfect recommendations for breakfast and dinner restaurants within walking distance. The house was well stocked with everything we needed.
The location is amazing - one block from the main street of the city and 3 blocks from the cathedral. Wonderful for sightseeing and easy to drive out of town to explore. You do have to pay for parking in this location (9-6pm) but it was worth it since we could walk every where when we returned from our day trips.
I would definitely stay here again if I am back in Iceland.
A cozy Reykjavik retreat indeed!
Our family of three spent a week at Roald's cozy Reykjavik retreat over the Summer Solstice. Roald was very accommodating and promptly responded to all our questions. His place is exactly as pictured and is in a great location - just a half block from the Hallgrimskirkja and all that downtown has to offer. Roald's home is stylish but homey, the WiFi works great, and the kitchen has everything you could hope to want to use. If we visit Iceland again we will certainly be hoping to stay at Roald's again!
Wonderful apartment in the middle of everything
Thank you, Roald, for a wonderful stay and for being such a responsive host. My wife and our two children enjoyed the apartment and amenities, and loved being able to walk to restaurants, shopping and the local geothermal pool!
Zentrale Wohnung mit sehr guter Ausstattung
Wohnung liegt ruhig in einem Hinterhof drei Minuten zu Fuß zur Haupteinkaufsstraße mit einem kleinen Supermarkt u zur bekannten Kirche Halgrimskirkja. Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet, insbesondere in der modernen Küche ist alles da, was man ggf braucht. Cool wäre noch ein funktionsfähiger Grill gewesen, da wir extremes Glück mit dem Wetter hatten. Einen Mietwagen kann man fussläufig umsonst parken (vorm Haus ist teure Parkzone). Der Kontakt mit Roald war auch sehr nett, er ist sehr bemüht, dass alles klappt. Alles in allem eine runde Sache u empfehlenswert.
Best location, quality home &friendly helpful host
This was my 6th trip to Reykjavik- a bit in love with this vibrant, beautiful city and its people. I've rented places through Homeaway each time and have had overall pleasant experiences, but this trip was extra special. Roald was so kind, helpful, and dedicated to making sure all of my questions and needs were tended to- because of this it made his home seem even homier to me somehow. His home is perfectly located- truly, you are in the middle of everything but because the house is tucked behind other houses you don't hear the noise. It was such a pleasant surprise to have such quiet, save for the songs of morning birds. The location cannot be beat- you are close to bus stop 8 (Hallgrimskirkja) where every tour will pick up and drop off, including the bus from the airport. The best bakery in town is 2 blocks away, Brauđ, and the Bónus grocery store is 1 block away. Excellent restaurants abound in this neighborhood too!
As for the house itself- it is such a clean, smartly decorated, and well organized home. I was really impressed with the layout, and everything that you could need is there. If you like to cook, you will be in heaven. The kitchen is wonderfully set up with quality cooking appliances and utensils, plus an incredible collection of cookbooks. It was such a pleasure preparing meals here- how often can one say that on vacation?!!
It should be mentioned that the stairwell to the bedroom is not for anyone with mobility problems- it is a steep staircase and you must exercise caution. The bedroom is lovely, with a nice deck that allows a peekaboo view of Hallgrimskirkja one way, and the mountains the other. The bed is equipped with a massage feature and the ability to position the bed upright or in various angles. I didn't use it, but it might appeal to some. The bathroom was very nice, with a heated floor and excellent water pressure in the shower. I must mention that this was the first time in my travels that the water did NOT have that sulfurous smell- meant to ask why that was? Obviously not a problem, and perhaps a positive for some.
In summary, this is my favorite place I have ever stayed in Reykjavik. It was a true home away from home and I hope to stay there again in the near future. Thank you, Roald, for everything!
Charming Modern Cottage in the heart of Reykjavik
We thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at this lovely home. It has all the comforts of home and Roald has done a wonderful job remodeling and furnishing the home and he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. From restaurant recommendations to getting us fresh towels, he really does aim to please. Location, location, location! The home is in the center of the city so we walked to all the downtown sights, including the pickups for all the tours. There are restaurants galore all within a few blocks. I highly recommend renting this home. FYI - for anyone who has trouble with stairs, please be aware the bedroom is upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs. Thanks again Roald!
