Amazing accommodations
We were fortunate to stay at the river apartments for one night. The apartment was spacious, everything we needed, excellent view of the river, comfortable bedding and wonderful host. Being at many Airbnb you could see the host truly enjoys what she does and makes your stay as comfortable as possible. She even gave us suggestions for sightseeing printed up and some Icelandic candy. Thanks again Kristin for opening your home ....

Wonderful place with a touch of home
Lovely apartment! It was perfect for 4 gals on a trip. We stayed 3 nights and loved having a full kitchen to cook in. Restaurants, grocery, wine store were all close by as were local attractions. Waking up to a view of the river was incredible. The owner Kristin was amazing! Provided us with printed information about things to do and favorite restaurants. She asked if we wanted her to come down if she saw the northern light and of course we said yes. On our final night there was a knock on the door around 11pm and it was Kristin saying the light were out. The only time we saw them on our 8 day trip. We would have missed them if not for her. Thank you for taking such good care of us!!!!

Great location, outstanding owner and family.
We stayed at the River Apartments as a stopover from Golden Circle trip before heading further on the Ring Road. Nice residential area close to places to eat in Selfoss. The apartment was really nice. Kristin, owner, sent us an email about a month before the trip with instructions on how to find property and how to check in. She had our name on the door to the apartment, which made sure we got to the right door. There are 2 different apartments on the ground floor of the house. They even checked in on us when we arrived (we arrived quite late), gave us a list of things to do on our planned next day trip to Vik, and welcomed us with delicious bar of chocolate. The apartment was impeccable, we were able to do laundry with dryer and wash our baby supplies. Bed was comfy. The only recommendation I can think of would be to have a more prominent sign by the driveway, so it is easier to locate at night. We found it by the house number before we even realized there was a sign.

Proud Icelander is a great hostess
The accommodations were exceptional and our host was awesome. She knew that we were in Iceland for the 4th of July (US independence holiday) so she picked up my son an Icelandic chocolate bar that I have to say tasted excellent. I only got a little taste as my wife and son enjoyed the heck out of it. More importantly our hostess was very proud of her country and the area she lived. She offered some tips (ice cream was excellent) and the Geyser and Gullfoss waterfall are the coolest most beautiful things I have witness in nature. The Selfoss area was also very nice, lots of restaurant (Yellow was really very good, affordable, and had things for the healthy eater) opportunities. Iceland is a great place to visit if you like nature, and I would put this trip on par with Hawaii and Southwest Utah (Other places I have visited yet all are quite different. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
