About This Listing
The apartment has one bedroom with a queen size bed and a living room with a big sofa that comfortably sleeps two persons. It is in a nice quiet neighborhood and within 5 minute walking from center of town, the swimming pool or the mall :)
In the very heart of Akureyri, yet in a very quiet and green neighborhood we rent out this nice apartment. It is a very popular in the summer and also the winter season because it is close to the ski resort in the mountains and the center of town as well.
We live upstairs so we can always help you.
THE APARTMENT has one bedroom, one living room, a kitchen and is very well equipped. It would be suited for 2-5 guests.
The bedroom has a queen size bed for 2 people, a closet and a night table. The living room has a sleeping couch, a radio, tv and a DVD player. In the well equipped kitchen there is a dining table, a microwave, dishwasher, coffee machine etc. for your self service. And the supermarket is nearby. The bathroom has a toilet and a shower. We provide free access to our wireless internet connection and a internet connected PC computer.

The location is the best, it it peaceful even though it takes just five minutes to walk to the center, the public pool and the shopping mall.
Free Wi-Fi, Gas Barbeque, TV, Computer, Private parking and lots more, the apartment is fully equipped.
Interaction with Guests
The guests have their own separate apartment so I generally leave them completely to themselves unless they want to come over and have a chat.
The house has two apartments one that we and our two children live in and then the guest apartment so you will be staying under the same roof as us but you can have all the privacy you want or you can get in contact with us if you wish.
This is a relatively old neighborhood so it is very green with lots of trees. It is very quiet so instead of hearing traffic you will be hearing the birds sing through the day (and night actually during the summer)
No need for public transit, everything noteworthy is within walking distance but if you want to explore the bus in Akureyri is completely free !
Other Things to Note
Even though we are small and only renting out one apartment in our house we have an operating licence for a guest apartment and we are proud to go above and beyond complying with the quality requirements issued by the Icelandic government.
I recommend catching a concert at a local venue "The Green Hat" if possible (website hidden)
I want guests to feel at home and behave a such :)
Sigtryggur was very accessible and easy to communicate, and had no problem accommodating our late arrival time, which I appreciated. The apartment is in a great location, within a short walking distance of Akureyri's main street, but the apartment was very small for 5 people. There was one queen bed, a mattress on the floor in the bedroom, and two oddly shaped couched we had to push together to sleep 2 people.
A good location near enough to downtown we could walk almost everywhere, but was on a nice quite street. We enjoyed our stay in this basement apartment, it had pretty much everything you need (a nice living room, wifi, tv, decent kitchen, parking right outside). Our only complaints would be the extremely squeaky bed and no toilet paper in the bathroom. But other than that we had no problems! We only met the host briefly once, but she was friendly.
Thank U for welcome us so helpful, communicative and caring in Akureyri!
We had all information we needed and enjoyed our stay.
Nice, cozy, well-equipped flat - the only drawback is that the washroom is a bit too small; quite convenient location (5-minute walk to the town centre; coming back may take a bit longer, perhaps five minutes extra); Sigtryggur is a friendly and helpful person who provided some tips for us on booking local tours. His wife is also very helpful that asked if we have any needs for several times. Recommended.
Very conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood. The center of town is just a short walk away. Sigtryggur and Heida were very friendly hosts and gave us recommendations as to where to eat in Akureyri and helped us arrange a boat tour to Lundey, the puffin island, from Husavik. We were able to cook and grill our own meals in the apartment. Thank you for having us!
Spend 5 days in the Akureyri area with Sigtryggurs apartment as our base. It worked out nicely and much better than a hotel. More space in a nice neigborhood and in walking distance to the center of Akureyri.
Even though we didn't meet Sigtryggur he had arranged everything before we arrived and his friends were a great help.
The right way to experience Akureyri and the Myvatn area.
