Furthermore, I can highly recommend to take a day trip and experience the beautiful Icelandic nature. Only a 10 min drive to the nearest mountain, perfect for hiking, and there are also family friendly hiking paths. We also have some great tour companies that do day tours from here.
To get here from Reykjavik there are domestic flights, you can take a bus or rent a car. I can also recommend a website for those looking to share a ride. The drive from Reykjavik is 388km and usually takes about 4-5 hours.
The drive from the local airport only takes about 8 minutes (ca. 4 km).
The apartment is for guests private use during their stay. Washroom is shared, guests are welcome to use the washer at any time during their stay, same goes for garden and deck.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the apartment above and am usually around. I'm a very open person and love meeting new people, I also know when people need their own space.
No smoking on premises.
Please respect others well deserved sleep and try to be quiet should you come in at a late hour. I kindly ask you to avoid any noise between 11 pm and 7 am
I'd be happy if you wrote something in the guest book:)
If you were not satisfied then please let me know so that I can improve the accommodation.
I have a small dog living with me in the apartment above. The garden and laundry room are shared. Normally I keep her out of my guests way, but If you or anyone in your group is afraid of, or allergic to, dogs please let me know beforehand so I can make arrangements.
Rakel is a very friendly and welcoming host. The lovely apartment is located in a nice and quiet neighbourhood within walking distance to town centre as well as the botanic garden. The rooms are nice, clean and specious. Beds were very comfortable and breakfast was super nice too.
Rakel's home was by far the best place we stayed in Iceland. Her attention to details is commendable and that shows in the way her home is prepared for guests. She is excellent in her communication. We reached her home very late, but she greeted us with a big smile. The refrigerator was stocked with breakfast which was excellent. I would not think twice before staying here again, and hopefully I can stay for a longer duration next time.
Rakel's apartment was above and beyond our expectations. The apartment is so well put-together and includes everything you may need or want. Extremely clean and really comfortable. We arrived pretty late at night and Rakel made it totally doable. Our only qualm is that we wish we stayed longer! Thank you again Rakel for a great experience in Akureyri.
Our best AirBnB in Iceland ! Great quality for price, nicely located, decorated... Everything we could desire... Great attention to details from Rakel who was very nice and friendly... Great complete breakfast.... We could feel like at home !
Thank you Rakel
This was a lovely apartment in a pretty neighborhood and Rakel was a wonderful hostess.
Très bon accueil de Rakel qui nous a tout expliqué concernant l'appartement. Grande cuisine, frigo rempli pour le petit déjeuner!!skyr, charcuterie, œufs, jus de fruits, pain, céréales... Bref tout ce qu'il faut. On a également pu faire une lessive! Les lits sont très confortables avec télécommandes pour régler l'inclinaison un gadget mais agréable après des jambes lourdes d'une randonnée. Conseils également pour un restaurant. N'hésitez plus c'est l'appartement idéal pour un séjour a akureyri!
Rakel met us outside when we arrived and showed us the apartment. It was a lovely little spot with its own private entrance. The kitchen was well equipped and we were delightfully surprised to find the refrigerator fully stocked with items to make a great breakfast and coffee/tea. The beds were very comfortable, the curtains blocked out the 22 hours of sunlight well! Great, central location to the city. Easy parking - Rakel let us leave our car in the driveway so we didn't have to worry about a thing. I highly recommend this as a great spot to spend some time in Akureyri!
