The apartment is located in an old house in a quiet leafy street right close to Reykjavík city center and the old harbor. It is within walking distance of most tourist attractions in Reykjavik and close to a a variety of restaurants and bars. As it is a family home it has everything you need for a convenient stay. It is on two floors with a bathroom and bedroom on each floor and therefor offers good privacy for each room. The apartment is bright and spacious and has recently been refurbished.

The space

The house is one of a group of houses in Reykjavik built in the beginning of last century in the 101 area in Reykjavik that are called ship captain houses as they were typically owned by captains that were very well off at the time. They have a charm and history that makes them ideal for a special stay in Reykjavík.

The location can't be beat. You are less than a block to town center - easy access. You are also a very short 5 min walk to Old Harbor area. Tons of Restaurants and Pubs are all nearby. Groceries we recommend looking up Bonus and or Kronan nearby. Search Grocery Stores Reykjavik as Searching Kronan Directly did not pull up their closest location. This vacation getaway has large 2 person Bathtub / and the King Size bed is EXTREMELY comfortable. We have a Temperpedic mattress at home and this was comparable or even better sleep. The Kitchen is stocked with all you will need. There is Great Water Pressure. Also Excellent tasting Cold Water. Parking right out front was not an issue for us. The unit was also very quiet - no shenanigans going on outside. We also totally recommend walking to the closest Geothermal Pool - Starts with a "V" and is about 10 blocks or 10 minute walk and only 9.50 entry and you will be so relaxed after going - almost worth going daily! There is also an Excellent coffee house across the street from the geothermal pool. Also don't miss BRAUD and CO. Look it up and Walk there guys - near the main church designed after a waterfall. SKULI was our favorite spot for a BEER and go 3-7 as happy hour offers out 3-4 drafts for 7-9 versus 1200 regular price $12.00. Icelandic Fish and Chips special for 15.00 is 5 minute walk...don't order the salad as price goes to 28.00 for a few extra leaves - fresh leaves but not 13.00 worth.

I like biking in the countryside, running (run a marathon every ten years) playing guitar, going fishing, and sailing on my boat which is located in Hauganes.. I am interested in the live of people in the Eyjafjörður area in older times. My anchestors lived around Eyjafjörður and I stayed there duriing summer when I was a child and come there every summer. My family has a house on the other side of Eyjafjörður. Hauganes is a summer house I bougt recently with my brother Stefan.
