We love our house and street it's in a very nice and quiet street. It's just 3-7 minuets walk to the old harbor and to downtown Our area is vibrant full of restaurants, the swimming pool Vesturbæjarlaugin is in 15 minuets walking distance.

The space

The space is a basement in a family house. In the basement that has separate entrance it's 3 bedrooms and you can use two rooms. One with 120 cm bed and the other with sofa bed 140 cm. The 3rd bedroom its private and adult daughter use it sometimes. There is a WC with shower, also a small laundry and you can use a fridge and make yourself coffe, te. and toast a bread. I live on the second & third floor and there is a open stairs up to my private place I'm very seldom at home especially at sunmertime. The bathroom is private for you excluded when my daughter is home it's sherd.

Maria's place was in a central, but calm location and very tidy. Maria had everything ready for us and made sure we had a pleasant and enjoyable stay - highly recommend it!

Very cozy and charming place! Very easy check in. We had great tips given to us by Maria. We enjoyed meeting her daughter and talking about her trip to Maine over the summer.

My friend and I stayed at Maria's place just this past week for 5 nights, and it was perfect and as expected. If you are taking the Flybus into Reykjavik, get off at Icelandair Hotel Marina, and from there, it is about a 7 minute walk. I arrived there around 1 AM, and although it was a bit spooky walking along the Harbour, there are a lot of homes there with good lighting and felt safe. My friend and I used both rooms, and I slept on the sofa bed which was quite comfortable. The washroom and kitchenette are in the same room, and although no stove or microwave to heat anything up, there is a fridge, sink and washer/dryer that was very convenient. Maria's daughter was there the entire time we stayed, but it was no bother and was nice to speak to her about Iceland and she was available when we needed supplies. The location is tucked away in a quiet residential area, but only a 10 minute walk to get into downtown, and around 20-25 minutes to the Church and other attractions on the other end of the city. We walked about 20,000 steps on one day exploring the downtown area, so it is very possible to do everything by foot and stay away from the busy downtown core at night (which does stay noisy late into the night, so if you are not into that scene, definitely stay a bit further). We had a car for a view days and parking on the street was not an issue. There are a few grocery stores nearby, within 5 minutes by foot that was very convenient - Bonus is the cheap grocery store chain that had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend Maria's place if you are looking for a quiet place to stay while in Reykjavik - I would definitely consider staying there again if I were to return to Iceland. :)

We stayed at Maria's two separate nights, our first and last nights on the island. I left a review after the first night, but now having another place to compare it to, I have another note to add: I had not realized before how QUIET Maria's place was. Her daughter has the third bedroom downstairs and we practically never heard her, or anyone from upstairs. Maria's house was a very restful place for us. Great place to stay, would definitely come here again if I ever make it back to Reykjavik.
