Welcome to my newly renovated apartment in the outskirts of Reykjavik. Perfect choice for those traveling by car with private parking and 10min drive to downtown Reykjavík.
Accomodates 3 with 1 single bed and a double sofa-bed.

The space

Welcome to my newly renovated apartment, a cosy and colourful place that I normally call home.
The apartment is a secondary-suite as part of a bigger house, with private entrance on the ground floor.
The Apartment is very practical with the kitchen, living and dining room in one open space where all you need is always within reach. There's one bedroom with a super single sized bed (105cm) but the apartment easily fits three people by converting the sofa into a queen sized bed with mattress and duvets for everybody. The bathroom has a shower and a washer.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a cooker with two hobs and a small oven that still fits a big baking dish. All utensils are right within reach and there's a good selection of spices. There's a teapot and a french press to make coffee. The sink is big and there's a dish-rack and dish-towel hanging on the wall next to it.
I completely renovated the kitchen last summer (2014) stripping down the old interior and building a new one with new cabinets, sink, tabletop, tiles, paint job, plumbing etc.
The bathroom was also completely renovated in November 2015, with new shower, toilet, sink, tabletop etc.

There's high speed wireless internet. 32" LCD TV connected to an Apple TV for your required dose of entertainment. On the wall there's a big map of Iceland (152x110cm), perfect to help you plan your further trips.

Guest access

Parking spot in front of the house as pictured.
The garden is reserved for the main house/apartment where my parents live.

Other things to note

Please leave and have the windows open as much as you can. It's a small space and when showering and cooking a lot of moisture adds up inside, we've often found the apartment left with dripping wet window sills and that's a problem.
In Iceland there is plentiful of natural hot spring water coming from the ground, this is used to heat the houses so don't be afraid of leaving the radiators on. You'll notice the funny smell of sulfur from the hot tap water, Icelanders don's use it for cooking but we love showering in it :)

This is such a great place. The location was a quick drive to everything in Reykjavík. The information booklet that Birkir left us gave good information on where to find groceries, coffee shops, and restaurants. We used it as a reference throughout our trip. The apartment was perfectly laid out for two people. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals throughout our trip. We slept well on the comfortable bed and appreciated the nicely arranged bathroom. The apartment decor was well thought out and inviting. This place served as a great home base for day trips around Iceland. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a nice, quiet, comfortable home base while you are stating in Iceland.

This house is situated pretty much central and we caught the aurora lights on of our nights. It was easy to get there however the wrong unit was given and we had to refer to the picture. There was s guidebook left for us to look through and clear our doubts and that was a pretty good idea. The Apple TV had loads of movies screening on Netflix and we had a good time. Any movie freak would. However there were some setbacks. The kettle was rusty and there were no plastics given for the bin though the guidebook said there were. His parents who lived nearby were kind enough to give us the plastic bags as soon as we asked our host for them. The fridge did not have a freezer and we bought 2 tubs of ice cream to enjoy which sadly had gone to waste. We had to cook our meat on that day itself as well. The doors in the house were slightly misaligned especially the one in the toilet. The door keeps hitting the washing machine at the entrance of the toilet.

A great location and we travelled to some beautiful and amazing spots whilst we were staying in Birkir's place. He was quick to reponse and we had no problems checking in or out. We would highly recommend staying here if you're visiting Iceland and it's far enough out of the city centre that it's easy for you to drive off and explore the nearby landscapes.

Interaction with guests

I am easily reached and more than willing to help my guests so they get the most out of their stay in Iceland.
My parents live in the other part of the house and I partly live with my girlfriend in downtown Reykjavík.
