      Such a charming apartment close to the city

      A well appointed apartment just on the outskirts of Reykjavík. Right inside a charming quarter where they used to make and wash wool. Cute little artisan shops close by. Apartment was super clean and had all the necessities. The view from the apartment over the water is so relaxing. The owner was amazing, she took the time to chat with us, feel us out for what kind of things we like to do and offered amazing suggestions, even typing out the spelling into Google for us. I would not hesitate to use this Home Away again.
