This is my home, which I share with my kids and you'll be staying in our extra bedroom, which is quite private. You have access to the bathroom and the kitchen if you want to cook. It's a five minute walk to the downtown of Reykjavik and close by all the awesome west-end features - the pool, coffee houses, the harbour, etc. It's a great neighbourhood! I'm a musician and I collect vinyl records.

The space

I'm a music fan and I produce music myself, so there's a great vinyl collection if you feel like listening to records while you're here. Just don't scratch them up!

Guest access

You can use the kitchen and the bathroom of course. Your room is private, but I work a lot at home so I guess there's not a lot of hanging out to do. But you can make this your base of operations while exploring Reykjavik!

Interaction with guests

I've lived here since 1999, so I can help you find what you're looking for and make recommendations.

House Rules
Check in time is 4PM - 7PM

I don't have pets and I don't like people smoking in the house, but I do have a balcony, so you're welcome to smoke there if you need to. I have kids as well, so it's not a party place. But there are plenty of places to party downtown so...

Kids were well behaved. We used the fridge to keep our groceries cold and the use of the grill and kitchen was awesome to help us save a few dollars. Alison had great recommendations on local pools and resteraunts. fresh clean sheets and towels. Easy walk back into downtown Reykjavik. Super quite and safe neighborhood. We enjoyed our stay.

Alison was a nice host who welcomed us into her house. The atmosphere was nice and laid back. The room itself was basic, no real complaints or compliments regarding it. Great spot to stay at in Reykjavik as it is quiet and private but only a 5 minute walk away from the action.

La casa di Alison, pulita e ben tenuta, e' molto accogliente e noi siamo stati benissimo; la casa e' stata a nostra completa disposizione poiché Alison era fuori città per alcuni giorni; la host e' stata gentilissima perché ci ha fatto trovare del cibo in frigo per la colazione.
