Waking up to the sound of the wave, with a breathtaking view of the ocean as far as you can see. Its almost like being in the countryside in one of the coolest part of Reykjavík And a big change to see the northern lights from the balcony.

The space

My home is located in one of the coolest part of Reykjavík, with lots of restaurants, museum and art store´s, and only about 10 - 15 minutes walking distance from the city centre.
It is bright, modern and spacious with a beautiful ocean view and you can hear the braking of the waves into the apartment.
There is a big bedroom with a queen bed and walk in closest that connects to the toilet. You can see the ocean from the bed.
The living room and dining room are interconnected with a beautiful view over the sea. Nice and clean bathroom and again you can see the ocean when you lay in your bath.
The kitchen is equipped with everything you would need to cook yourself.
There is a balcony facing south with a spectacular view, red midnight sun that dose not set down in the summer, and in the winter it is a big change to see the northern lights .
The apartment is on the second floor and there is nothing to block the view.
The apartment includes:
-A bathroom with bathtub
-Beautiful ocean view
-Flat screen TV
- Wireless Internet
- Fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, coffee machine , etc.
- Towels and bathroom amenities
- Sheets, blankets and pillows
There is a bus stop close to the house. It's a 5 minute ride to city centre and Reykjavik's main shopping street, Laugavegur.
3 Grocery stores are in 5 minutes walking distance and one of them is open 24 hours.
There is also a swimming pool near by, Vesturbæjarlaugin, where the have hot tubs and saunas.
The apartment is located in a very quiet area , so it almost feel like you are in the countryside, even though it´s so close to the city centre.
There are plenty of restaurant´s and museum around the aria.
How to get there from the airport:
The airport is located 45 minutes from the city centre and is serviced conveniently and regularly by the Flybys.
We have good connections in the tourist and nightlife guiding for we have worked in that area and would be more than happy to help and give good advice.
At the moment there are some construction noise that are going on in the building so there may be some building noise during the day´s .

The most amazing view from the living room and bedroom and bathroom over the ocean. Stunning to wake up to the view over the water to the mountains behind. We had great recommendations from Sissa on where to go from a fantastic little bakery and a quieter hot springs pool. Really central to everything you want to get to, yet away from the crowds. There is no shower, just a bath with shower attachment but it was a nice change to take the time to soak each day. Supermarkets are just around he corner to get any essentials you may need. A lovely warm escape from the cold and the perfect place to relax.

What a perfect location and perfect apartment. Everything was well planned and well thought of. I really liked the decoration and interior design of the apartment. I would definitely request to stay again when I return to Iceland next month.

Sissa was incredibly welcoming and so was her gorgeous apartment. A far cry from Nordic minimalism, it was well decorated, cozy and "felt like home". I enjoyed the 10 minute walk into town along the harbour every day.

Sissa was there when we arrive. She is very nice and friendly. The studio itself is excellent, a lot of interesting stuff. Fantastic design and layout. Actual room is even better than the picture on the page. We were having a lot of fun looking around. The view outside is also great, pretty pity we missed the beautiful sunset that day. I will definitely recommend this place for people who love idea, fashion and photograph.

We had a delightful stay in Sissa's flat. She was incredibly welcoming on arrival, and her flat is the ideal place for a relaxing stay in Reykjavik. Floor to ceiling glass provides stunning view of the ocean paired with the artistic decor makes her home incredible. Is a easy and short walk into the city centre with lots of useful food shops around. We'd highly recommend!

We had a fantastic time at Sissa's AMAZING flat. It really is a wonderful place to stay. Sissa has such great taste in interiors (an stealing some decor ideas!!) and the views of the bay are super. We spent hours just watching the changing sea colours - sometimes well into the night. It's very confusing to have no night! The location of the flat could not be better. It is very quiet - so quiet you can hear the sea - but 10 minutes from where it's all happening in the city. Sissa was very helpful and reccommended various places to eat, drink and shop in Reykjavik and was very generous with her toiletries and food! We had a fabulous time and would want to stay at Sissa's place again!!!

We had lots of fun stepping into Sissa's world for a couple of days. The apartment was very cool, great for watching the night-long sunsets and easy enough to walk into town in about 10 mins.
