44 m2 apartment consisting of 1 bedroom with 2 beds and a living room with a pull out sofa, it's big enough for two (140cm/55,12 inches wide). Baby cot available upon request. There is also a kitchen and a bathroom with a shower and toilet.
The apartment also includes a private parking space along with free wi-fi access and pretty much everything else that makes a home, and you can't live without! Bedlinen and towels included.
The apartment is situated in the northern town of Akureyri, with approx. 18.000 inhabitants. It's located in the heart of the town, near the seashore, close to all convenient services such as supermarket, bus station and tourist center, pubs, bars, restaurants, theater, museums, health/spa center etc.
My coordinates are 65° 41' N - the Arctic Circle is 66° 33′ N
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. 4,5 km).
The apartment is for guests private use during their stay. Washroom is shared, guests are welcome to use the washer any time during their stay, same goes for garden and deck.
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...

Rakel was a very friendly host - she gave us some tips on what to do in the Akureyri area, suggested a very good restaurant for dinner, and stocked the fridge with breakfast goodies. The apartment is clean and cozy. We really enjoyed our stay there.
Rakel is amazing! Honest to goodness the best AirBnB experience I've ever had. She stocked the fridge with all kinds of goodies and even brought us all to a pool outside of town. The dogs are so adorable and the backyard is such a treat when the sun comes out! Thank you again, Rakel!
Rakels apartment was the best place I stayed in Iceland. Rakel was a friendly host who provided excellent information on where to go and what to see in Iceland. The fridge and cupboards stocked with food was a very nice addition. A great first up experience with airbnb.
We had such a lovely stay at Rakel's place. Treats in the fridge to make us feel right at home and well nourished after a looong day of driving started thing off on the right foot! The apartment is lovely and calm, and so well located - 3 minute walk from the Akureyri Sundlaug (public pool) which we (and apparently many Akureyri residents) love. Thanks Rakel!
Rakel gave us so many informations about her country and area ! she was really very helpfull. Thanks to her we discovered Grimsey island for example : great memory !
She greeted us very warmfully, we found food in the kitchen, bread, jam, tea, cheese, yogurt, orange juice, and so on !!
we really felt very welcome and at home !
her appartment is very well located, cosy, well decorated, and clean.
We highly recommand that place and Rakel as a host !
Muchas gracias Rakel, fuiste muy amable durante nuestra estancia. El apartamento está muy bien, céntrico, limpio y (website hidden) lo recomendamos a todo aquel que quiera viajar a Akureiri.
Rakel is a really great host and I highly recommend staying at her apartment when in Akureyri! The apartment is clean, super comfortable and right in the center of the city. There is plenty of space and the fridge is fully stocked... what more can you ask for?
Also, Rakel is super nice, extremely friendly and very accommodating... even though we had to check in much later than expected!!!
Rakel and her apartment were AWESOME! The location is super convenient, and in walking distance to everything in town. Rakel was very friendly, happy to answer any questions we had. The bonus was that she filled the fridge with some items that she thought we might like - OJ, milk, cheese, yogurt, bread...some staples. It was very thoughtful and appreciated. I'd certainly stay here again if we ever make it back to Iceland!
Very friendly host, cute apartment! Would definitely stay here again.
Rakels apartment is located very near to the harbor, therefore very near the Information center, whale watching ticket office in the harbor.
The apt itself is very clean, tidy and comfortable, and has all you need for a good relax during the trip.
Rakel is very considerate by nature, we were taken really good care in her quite way during our stay. Open-mined as she is, she has traveled to China many years ago. And when we were back from trip, she laid 4 sets of Chopsticks nicely wrapped for us. When our laundry was about to be ready, the clothing rack was laid out already!
I definitely recommend Rakel to all other guests!
