Orri and his family made us feel welcome and were very friendly. The location was close to this small and beautiful fishing village. Orri suggested a fish restaurant that we both agreed was one of the best seafood meals we've ever had. Some extra maintenance of the apartment is needed - i.e. door handles - and the outside grounds and concrete paths also need to be improved. Although the price was high I understand it was a normal market rate for Iceland, where prices are high generally.

Sweet little one bedroom apartment in a very charming costal town with amazing views. This was a great base to explore the peninsula. It worked out great traveling with a little baby. Orri lent us a crib, high chair and toys which was so great to have. They couldn't have been more friendly. We loved our stay there!

This was my second time staying with Orri & fam and I could not be happier. Clean rooms, well appointed kitchen, large bathroom with towels & shampoo. He is a wonderful host and the apt is in an excellent location in relation to the harbor and restaurants / boutiques. Highly recommend!

Orri's place is the downstairs apartment, and he and his family live upstairs. He met us to show us around and offered suggestions of things to see and do in his area. Stykkisholmur is a charming town and the apartment was within walking distance to everything. There were toys for our son to play with and lots of space. We enjoyed our stay.

The stay was very comfortable. The entire apartment was to us. It was spacious and very clean. The apartment had most of the essentials from hair dryer to basic kitchen supplies to some food supplies. There was also a living room with nice collection of books and Media. Also, the bathroom was very nice. Orri was very responsive to all the messages, and he was very approachable as he lived right on the top floor of the house. It was not difficult to locate the apartment. Had a nice stay!

We stayed at Orru's place for two nights. It's a great little apartment with a full kitchen, located close to a bakery and supermarket. Orri is really nice and helpful. The little town Stykkusholmur is lovely, too. Highly recommended.

I am a 29 year old and live in Stykkishólmur, Iceland, with my wife and kids. I'm a nurse and work at Stykkishólmur Hospital. I love my job. I am also taking my masters degree in Nursing at the University of Iceland. I like to enjoy life, music, books, good food, good wine, taking it easy, chilling with friends. I really like to travel, especially locally. My wife and I have literally traveled everywhere in Iceland, usually staying off the beaten track in our good old tent, sometimes catching our dinner!
