“Excellent location, great for a large family”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed here for four nights using it at the base for exploring Reykjavik, taking a whale spotting trip and for visiting the sights on the Golden Circle route. All the communication with Jenny in advance was excellent and timely. We did not meet her but we had no need to and everything went fine in the Town House.

The location is great. Depending on your walking speed, the centre of Reykjavik is 10-15 mins away and you are just 5 mins from the whale watching and from restaurants such as Krua Thai, Icelandic Fish & Chips and Bullan burger. The house itself is on 3.5 floors, has 4 bedrooms and it seems that different bed combinations can be offered in at least one room. We had a double, a small double, a single and the fourth room had a double/two singles, a single, a cot and what looked as if it could be a sofa bed. The kitchen is large with all the utensils you might need. The living space and dining area was ample for the six of us. The single bathroom (there is a separate cloakroom) was very large, with underfloor heating, a great shower, a large bath tub and is next to clothes washing facilities.

There are only two things I can think of that might make this lovely house not suit everyone. Firstly, you are staying in someone's fully furnished house and it is clear that they live there for some or much of the year. That is great if you want to have use of a wide range of household equipment because everything is there. However, if you have a young child who pulls things off shelves, one of the first things you might need to do is move some of the owners' ornaments up high out of the way! Secondly, the bathroom is in the basement (next to the small double). This was not a problem for us but might be an issue if you require a bathroom on the same floor as all the bedrooms.

We would certainly be very happy to stay here again.

Hi and thank you so much for taking the time to write the review!
We live there in the winter time and have kids our selfs, so everything that is with in reach of little fingers is something that can easily be replaced : )
There are 1.5 bathrooms at the house, there is one also on the main-floor where the kitchen and dining room and living room are.
You are welcome back any time and the house was left very nice and neat. Thank you.
