Our house on Laxagata was built in 1933 and our guest area, situated on the ground floor of our home, is sympathetic to this period. The guest room has a kettle with complimentary tea and coffee. The Green Room has two single beds (with the option to add a travel cot). The bathroom has a shower and is shared between our two guest rooms (Blue and Green rooms). A continental breakfast is provided, and we are happy to cater for vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free guests. We are LGBTQ+ friendly.

The space
Guests can use a small reception area with love seat and a breakfast table. There is a kitchenette with a fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster, electric and induction hobs, independent halogen oven, sandwich grill and kitchenware. Guests are encouraged to leave used dishes for us to wash in our dishwasher. We have now installed a waching machine which our guests are free to use during their stay. An eco-egg (detergent) is also supplied for environmentally-friendly washing!

Where you’ll be

Akureyri, Iceland

We have added our own photos with captions, of fabulous places near us in North Iceland. These include waterfalls, such as Dettifoss and Goðafoss, and geothermal sites like Hverfjall and Víti (Gateway to Hell). Mýtvatn Nature Baths are said to be the Blue Lagoon of the North, and offer a better experience according to many visitors. Húsavík is about an hours drive and is said the be the whale watching capital of Iceland. Húsavík also has a cliff side geothermal pool called Geosea which we would recommend visiting.

Locally, Akureyri offers a range of attractions including museums, galleries, historic buildings and the botanical gardens. We are happy to recommend good places to eat according to your taste and dietary requirements.

Andy and I are keen to welcome you to the beautiful town of Akureyri in the North of Iceland. We first discovered Iceland as tourists, and were so captivated by the breath-taking scenery, quality of life and welcoming locals, that we left our academic jobs in the UK, and now live and work here. Our experience as visitors has influenced the way we have set up and run our Airbnb, and we hope that our guests feel relaxed and comfortable with all that we provide, even if it just from having extra pillows or facilities to make a cup of tea in your room.

We are very happy to offer advice on sightseeing and travel in advance (via Airbnb messenger), or during your stay, as we still enjoy sightseeing even though we now live here.

Andy is a keen photographer and can recommend good places to visit, especially for Northern Lights and waterfalls. His photos can be viewed on Instagram under Andy.Hill.7777.
