We had a great stay at Olof and Jon's place. The room is large enough for two people. You have access to a toilet down the hall and you can use their shower. Olof and Jon are very nice and helpful and provide a very detailed apartment guide. The apartment is located near grocery stores and restaurants and is ten minutes to Reykjavik by car or public bus. I would recommend getting a rental car if you are comfortable driving a manual car so you can discover areas outside of Reykjavik. I would highly recommend staying at this listing, you won't be disappointed.
Amazing place to stay! Nice and cozy, perfect for 1-2 people. They were very helpful in helping me plan out some places to visit during my week here, and all of the kitchen appliances were very useful!
Olof and Jon were really nice hosts! We can really recommend it.
If you go there - eat at Saffran!
The room was just like the pictures. Cozy and comfortable. The host are really nice and friendly. My trip in Island is an unforgettable memory for me. :-)
Olof and Jon were fantastic hosts. Even before I arrived, they sent a fantastic information booklet with maps and information about how to get to their place, good places to shop and eat, and some recommendations about things to do. They were also very welcoming upon my arrival. Jon even helped me call one of the tour groups I had booked with to see whether the tour was still happening despite snowy, windy weather. The apartment was exactly as described - clean, comfortable, and quiet - and the neighborhood felt safe enough for me to walk around by myself at night. Jon and Olof were also very accommodating when I had requests, and they were clearly interested in what tours I had most enjoyed so that they could share this information with others. I would highly recommend staying there!
Olof and Jon went above and beyond to make my stay there fantastic! Their place was very clean, organized, and comfy. The neighborhood is lovely and it is easy to find the place. Parking if you need it, a TV with movies, radio, appliances for cooking, breakfast foods, and they are just a short buzz away if you need them. Very private room and entrance. Very close bus stop and grocery stores nearby with a ride to downtown less than 10 minutes. You could walk in 30-45 if you'd like as well. Thank you Olof and Jon!
We had a great time! Wonderful little place! Especially for the price. Although we were there for only three days, Jon and Olof were very accommodating. Definitely recommend this place highly.

We bicycle to our work as often as possible, but sometimes it snows and then we have to use our car. I love playing soccer, I like the way Arsenal and F.C. Barcelona play.
