Could not have asked for more. She and Bjorn were very attentive to me and the missus. Great location and great service and place. If i ever go back to the Faroes, will surely give her a call.

Elsa Maria was very busy with a new restaurant, but her daughter was available as was Bjorn, her husband. All were helpful in giving me ideas about where to go and what to do, since I didn't have a car and was baffled by the transportation system. They made it clear I was to contact them any time if I had questions. The neighborhood was lovely--right in the center of town.

Elsa's husband Bjørn welcomed us when we arrived and gave us some very useful advice on our plans. The apartment is clean and spacious and conveniently located just a couple minute walk from the harbor and a 5 minute walk to the main bus and ferry terminal.

Our experience with Bjorn was really lovely; we got to know each other and had some fun drinks together! He was incredibly warm, friendly, interesting, and helpful. He taught us a lot about Faroese people, history and culture and was truly really fun company! :) Elsa Maria was away at the time that my boyfriend and I stayed on the Faroe Islands, but she did send us lots of information before we went, which was really helpful - thank you!

My experience at Elsa Marie's was great! The location was perfect, really central and easy to walk to everything in the main part of the city. The bus was really close by as well. Our hosts wer very helpful initially, giving us tips to explore and plenty of info on how to get around in Torshavn. Bjørn, was there to greet us on our first day. He was very helpful, answering all of our questions about our stay and where the best places would be to explore.

We found Elsa Maria’s place to be excellent in all respects. It’s more than large enough, clean, quiet, and very convenient to just about everything. Several good coffee shops, the Harbor, and most of Torshavn’s retail are within easy walking distance. In an attractive and quiet neighborhood with several good restaurants. Our hosts were travelling for most of our stay—but we did meet them in the evening before our departure. They are gracious and well-informed hosts.

Elsa made our visit exceptional with her help and assistance regarding information ie transport from airport, local interest, directions to shops/harbour etc. The apartment was as described, very clean, well equipped with everything needed for our short stay. You don't need to stay in a hotel when accommodation such as this is available. Thank you Elsa from Keith and Heather, Northern Ireland.
