Lo spazio
A nice apartment 98 sq.m, spacious, bright and open apartment / house. First floor, in a 3 apartment house. Central in the city in Sigtún, 105 Reykjavik - very close to GRAND and HILTON hotels, where the FLY BUS stops and you can leave for excursions.

Have another apartment upstairs costing a little less occasionally available. It looks much better than the pics as it has recently been "stylished" see here https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2015371

My apartment is for rent if / when I the owner am away abroad or traveling in Iceland mainly summer time, but also sometimes jan / feb period for example all Feb 2017.

HERE ARE SOME REVIEWS from guests staying either in a room here along with me or in the whole apartment.

The flat has 2 Bedrooms with one bed 180 cm in the bigger room
- and one bed 140 cm queen in the smaller room.
- Also an extra office room with my computer etc.

A big living room and a adjoining brand nice new Kitchen. The Bathroom is rather small with a good shower, bath and a washing machine.

It is 25 minutes walk from Reykjavik City Center, along the see, and in a neighborhood which is among the three most popular by Icelanders in the city. The biggest green park in Reykjavik and the Botanic garden is three minutes away. Also very close by are many restaurants.
Free high speed Wi-Fi and free and easy parking.

The FLY bus stops at Grand hotel three minutes from my home. There you can also leave for Excursions and buy some as well.

Local bus to all directions stop is three minutes from the house.

Host around 40 years old, living alone, but a 12 year lovely daughter also sometimes here mainly weekends.

The most popular thermal swimming pool, a green park, restaurants among else at the nearby hotels, and more, all within 400 meter radius.

NB!!
Some very good practical information concerning how it is best and most economical to get from the airport and concerning the Blue Lagoon and more, further below in this text market as PPPP.

My fellows company is working in Tourism and Consultancy
In some cases my coworker or even me could take people on a:
a) Grand Golden Circle Tour - not only visiting the tourist sites! We have a nice jeep and license to take passengers. The cost for that would be around 350 dollars for a full day which is lower than our cost price for car and an employee. It would be divided then between 2-4 passengers (400 if 4 passengers). Also possible
b) Blue Lagoon and Reykjanes and
c) The south shore, waterfalls, nature and glacier walk.
d) The Westmanna Islands, one night minimum.
e) The circle around Iceland!, minimum for 4 days then (arr. 1200 km.)

Information:
You can get a free copy of the yellow very comprehensive VISITOR'S GUIDE book at the tourist information desk at the airport (often no employee there), or Reykjavik Excursion (also a discount coupon from them in the book) or Iceland Excursion.

The book has a lot of information and articles for example about the Northern Lights, the Icelandic horse, the Blue Lagoon, Golden Circle and more. Also good maps of Reykjavik and Iceland as well as discount Coupons valid at restaurants, whale watching, tours and more. The book is also at the site Visitors guide dot and is.

Includes:
All necessities like towel, shampoo and more.

Kitchen:
A dish washing machine, stove, oven, fridge, microwave ..

Living rooms:
A 55 inch TV, DVD and a massage chair, good stereos. A good heating system in the flat.

More:
This home should make you feel better .... than at home:)

Speaks fluent English also good in all Scandinavian languages and German. Has traveled all over Iceland and to 50 foreign countries, most recently to south east Asia and Cuba, have written travel stories about the trips.

NB: I work among else in tourism and have a lot of knowledge of what do to, where and at a good price. Often able to get car rental (mainly off season), some tours and more at better prices.

PPPP
Coming from the airport
If you are coming with the fly-bus from the airport the (fare arr. ISK 2500 / return 4200) Iceland Excursion usually a little cheaper than Reykjavik Excursion). It is best to take the Fly-bus to Grand Hotel which is like 3 minutes from my house (300 meters).

You could ask someone at the hotel for direction to my home if you don’t see it in the map in the Visitor’s Guide book, the home is towards east and the park.

Some Practical info:
Blue Lagoon is very popular with tourists and has become like a must to do. I do though recommend the thermal swimming pools comparatively more, not least as their entrance fee is like 10 times less and also a better way to meet the locals. The one closest to my home around 5 minutes walking, I sometimes try to take my guest one time to the thermal pools.

The best way for the Blue Lagoon especially for those who are not so long time in Iceland is with the company netbus dot is they usually have the best online prices or arr. 7000 ISK for transfer and entrance fee.

a) From the airport (coming) do; the airport – Blue Lagoon – Reykjavik first tour around 9 am.
b) From Reykjavik (leaving) to the airport that is leaving back home, via Blue Lagoon only though if your flight is in the afternoon (leaving the Blue Lagoon at 12.30 or 14.00 to the airport). This is also possible with the companies Reykjavik and Iceland excursion but their prices are a bit higher but they have more frequent departures.

NB:
Never buy water in Iceland in shops or restaurants, the water from the tab is great!

I'm in the forties, have a 15 year old daughter, she lives in Kopavogur which is the next town 10 kilometers from here. I'm easy going, have traveled a lot to over 57 countries, most recently two trips in (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) to south and central America:) - 10 countries there. And in jan to march (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) to South East Asia 4 countries. Also to all places / towns in Iceland, know them all! I'm an Economist by education, and work among else in tourism & consultancy, and as a restaurant and travel writer. And published the Visitor's Guide travel book in Iceland for 15 years, but sold the Icelandic part last year. So you would say I have quite a good background to give people advice concerning traveling in Iceland. Our company also works for many restaurants so I know them all in Reykjavik, as well as many travel and tour companies. I like to have a nice and cosy home, with a mixture of new and old things. Have many friends a and good network as you could say. Some things I couldn't bee without in Iceland is our great water from the tabs (free), the thermal swimming pools (10 $), my lovely daughter and the space and the nature, which gives you a good energy. PRACTICAL INFORMATION NB. Some advice and directions When in Reykjavik ask at some hotels for the Visitors Guide book lot of info about Reykjavik and Iceland ( I give a copy to my guests) has also DISCOUNT coupons, articles, and all the necessary information for your stay. Also a good Map of Iceland and Reykjavik. Otherwise should get it a the fly-bus main terminal. GENERAL TOURIST INFORMATION SEE (Website hidden by Airbnb) & (Website hidden by Airbnb) Sorry I don't have time to answer general tourist information ..... TOURS My company works in tourism, consultancy and publication In some cases my coworker or even me could take people on a private, Grand Golden Circle Tour (9 h.)- not only visiting the tourist sites! We have a nice jeep and license to take passengers. The cost for that is around (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) dollars for a full day which is approx our cost price for car and an employee. It would be divided then between 2-4 passengers. ADVICE i) If you are thinking of going to the Blue Lagoon it is best/ most economical to visit it when leaving the country i.e. take the fly bus back via Blue Lagoon, this is though only valid if you are leaving in the afternoon. Or when you are arriving if you arrive in the morning, i.e. go to Reykjavik via Blue Lagoon (if you are not to tired). ii) No need to buy any tickets in advance for sightseeing etc, especially NOT in the autumn/ spring / winter - off season. As I am working in tourism we can sometimes get some tickets at lower price, especially for horse back riding, glacier walk and maybe whale watching. Whale watching is almost downtown so don't buy it with pickup. Don't generally recommend it though in Reykjavik. iii) I always recommend the thermal swimming pools for everyone to try, the price is only 10 Dollars about 8 times less than the Blue Lagoon!. They are warm and nice and a very cultural thing for Icelanders. iv) Don't buy water it is the same as the tab water! Bonus is the lowest price supermarkets and then Kronan, the price I guess 40% less than in the more tourist-supermarkets like (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) v) Reykjavik Welcome Card is a good way to explore the city, with free entrance to swimming pools, the city buses, museums and more. The price for a 1,2 or 3 day card is low approx. around (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) ISK. vi) The fly bus stops at a nearby GRAND HOTEL, which is 3 minutes walk from my home. vii) Hitchhiking in Iceland is rather easy, easier though for women and those who have little luggage. ACCOMMODATION: Here are some general recommendation for accommodation in the countryside. Akureyri in the NORTH: - Gula Villan - Charming old house in the center. - Hrafninn Guesthouse, more modern in the same street. SOUTH - Hótel Örk, Hveragerði, (45 km from Reykjavik), often good offers in spring and autumn - good value for money. - Hotel Lava, 5 km. from Kirkjubæjarklaustur, very good option in the off season, great value for money. - All over the countryside farmers holiday/ accommodation, they have a brochure with all the farms listed. - Also good guesthouses and youth hostels. TOURS AND ACTIVITIES: Nb. Usually it is better to call the companies directly. When you book through so-called tourist agencies/ information the tour operator has to pay the agency like (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) % commission! So better just to call the companies or bok through their sites,directly and get the pickup at the nearest hotel/guesthouse. Some few have a discount coupon in our Visitor's Guide book. Horseback riding (all have pickup at your accommodation): - The Icelandic Horse, the only horse rental in Reykjavik, rather small but a good and personal service. Speak many languages and the area and surrounding is very beautiful. They have a very good reviews on trip Advisor. - Eldhestar in Hveragerdi, Situated close to a small village 45 min from Reykjavik in the south. It is a good choice for those who want to go outside of the city and see some of the countryside. They have among else good trips where you can bath in natural hot springs and some other sightseeing activities. Glacier walk: At Sólheimajökull arr. 200 km from Reykjavik towards east, on the way to Jökulsárlón. Something many tourists like, through our company can often get it like 30% cheaper. GENERAL TOURIST INFORMATION: For general information and inquiries see (Website hidden by Airbnb) (Website hidden by Airbnb) ASK FOR THE YELLOW VISITORS GUIDE BOOK AT THE MAIN BUS TERMINAL. DON'T MISS THE COUPONS IN IT WHICH GIVES YOU DISCOUNTS, AMONG ELSE FOR TOURS AND RESTAURANTS. DON'T MISS THE THERMAL SWIMMING POOLS WHEN IN ICELAND - A VERY LOCAL THING AND COSTS 10 TIMES LESS THAN THE BLUE LAGOON! Welcome to Reykjavik and Iceland, hope you have a good time :) Regards, Konni
