About this listing

We own a traditional, little Icelandic house near the ocean in 101 Reykjavik.
The location is perfect, the city center is a short 20min walk away. The ocean and a stunning ocean walk is at the end of our street, the bus stop a few metres away.
The space is the ground floor of our house, with a semi-shared entry.

The space

This is one of Reykjavik's historical houses. The space for rent is on the groundfloor, it is a studio within our space. It is a rustic bedroom with a comfortable double bed and a dresser. The main area has exposed bricks,barn doors, a sofa bed, fridge, kettle, tea and coffee. You have your own, separate bathroom with a shower. Shared laundry.

It is good to note that this house was built almost 100 years ago (in Iceland that is historic!) so parts of the space are lower than today. The main bedroom fx only has the height of 2m (6'6) while the norm today is 2,3m.
So this might not be the best space for the super tall men out there! (I myself am 1.79 (5'11) and don't even notice it).

Guest access

Own little apartment within our house. Own bathroom. Guests have their own fridge and toaster, coffee and tea making facilities.
Our house is on 3 floors, the top two are used by my family.

Interaction with guests

I would love to help you make your stay in Iceland as enjoyable as possible! just ask and I will see how I can help.

Other things to note

You will be within our house. We just moved to Iceland after 9 years in Sydney, Australia. We are a very outdoorsy family, we go hiking, camping and on ocean walks pretty much daily. When we are home we love to have friends over, early dinners and in summer outdoor fires in our big, sheltered garden. We also have the friendliest outdoor cat, Miss Ballerina and a tiny little cockalier named Charlie. Our animals don's tend to use or go into the ground floor.

Our place is perfect for couples , couple of friends or for small families. (we can provide a crib if needed) Children are very, very welcome and will love the big garden, the trampoline and the playground right next to us.

Gorgeous and very private place. Lot's a space to park, friendly and quiet neighbourhood, but you'll be in the city within minutes. No noise from the airport. The ceiling is low but I'm not very tall so I had no problem with that. The bed is very comfy and bathroom very spacious. I felt at home and would love to stay here again one day.

What a gem! We loved staying at this cozy location and Sarah is an excellent host. The apartment is located in the basement of her home, but still very private. Sarah is very friendly and provided us with good coffee shop recommendations! The apartment is an easy drive to downtown Reykjavik or about a 5 minute walk to the bus stop down the street. Also located close to the ocean which has a relaxing walking trail along the shore. Just as an FYI for tall people - The ceilings in the bedroom are low, so might not be ideal for a long-term stay for anyone over 6ft tall. But otherwise this is perfect and we would 100% recommend for anyone wanting to stay in Reykjavik!

Sarah's place is a great deal! Priced very well for Iceland, great location, and the space is perfect for two. The bed was comfy and downtown Reykjavik was just a short drive. The domestic airport is close, however Keflavik is 45 minutes away, so keep that in mind. I'd definitely stay here again.

We had a very nice stay at Sara's place. It is a short drive to central Reykjavik and is as described. Very clean and cozy. Nicely decorated. Sara is very friendly and has a nice family. We were greeted by her friendly dog, Charlie when we arrived and he even came down to say goodbye in the morning!
