House was great! We stayed for a week in May and the house was just perfect. For those traveling with young children: We were two couples, each with a toddler. There was a crib available, and Sigrun also set up a pack-n-play so that we didn't have to bring ours. Also, she left two high chairs for us, which was super helpful. The set up couldn't have been better. The house has three floors with the bedrooms on the first and third (and there were sitting/play areas on each floor as well) so that each family had some privacy and it worked out well when the kids took naps at different times. There is also a large bathtub with a handheld shower head that makes bathing little ones a breeze. And best of all there were plenty of toys and books, and a couple of playgrounds on the street. For all travelers: The location is super convenient---an easy 8 min walk to the city center. There is a grocery store and several take away food places within a 2 minute walk from the house. There is also a washer and wi-fi. The local pool was very nice as well and about 10 minutes away on foot. In addition, we ended up needing to go to a health clinic while there and there was one about 5 minutes away. In short, you can get everywhere on foot easily. Sigrun provided a lot of great information about the surrounding area before we arrived. The snacks in the fridge (fresh fruit, cheese, bread, etc.) were an unexpected and delightful touch. Check in was easy and off street parking is available. The house is spacious so we had no problem fitting all our stuff (think car seats, strollers, etc.). I would definitely recommend for those traveling with or without children. Lastly, Sigrun responded promptly to us when we had a few question during our stay.

We stayed in Sigrún's house for a week in early September: four adults and one toddler. Our son is the same age as their youngest, so it was great to have a place with some toys, baby gates, a crib, and even a changing table to use. The house is clean, modern, and very close to downtown Reykjavik, less than 10 minutes walk to the city center through a quiet residential neighborhood. Sigrún made the whole process very easy, including key pickup right at the airport in Keflavik (which was great, since we arrived at the house at nearly 2:00AM local time and didn't have to bother anyone to get into the house). There was parking for our rental car off-street in front of the garage, and though we didn't take advantage of it, a sauna in the basement. She was available via email and phone and gave us a great list of toddler-friendly things to do while there. We'd definitely stay there again!

As well as being only a short walk to the centre of Reykjavik, and never more than 5 minutes from an incredible view and any necessary shops, Sigrún's house was immaculately put together. We were a group of 7, and were never short of comfort or personal space, and thanks to how well-presented the house was, it really felt like a home away from home for our weeklong stay. We were given all necessary instructions regarding the house and operation of amenities (including the sauna!), as well as personal recommendations on activities in the city from Sigrún, who made herself available to be contacted at all times and always replied to any questions thoroughly. I could not recommend Sigrún's house strongly enough. A wonderful home & host.

Response from Sigrun:
We regrettably had to cancel this booking due to family circumstances. We made this known as soon as it became apparent to give the most time for our guests to make new arrangements.

Sigrun avait très bien préparé notre arrivée malgré l'heure tardive, en particulier avec quelques provisions dans le réfrigérateur. Maison très agréable, lumineuse et pleine de charme. Quelques minutes à pied permettent d'atteindre le centre ville. Quartier résidentiel très calme.

We are a family of five, two academics and three children, two living with us, 1 and 20 y old. We travel much for leisure and work, often renting private accomodation for longer or shorter times, which we find an interesting way of travelling, - are thus happy to share our home and rent whilst away.
