Great check-in experience

Our apartment is located in the quiet and peaceful, authentically Icelandic town of Eyrarbakki. Less than an hour away from many of Iceland's major attractions, including the Golden Circle and the Blue Lagoon. Fully-equipped, kitchen and all.

The space
Your home away from home, a cozy one-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, dining area, and lounge/living room. The bedroom has a queen-size bed and the couch in the alcove is a sleeper sofa (double/queen size). There is also a sofa in the lounge with a smart TV with access to the web (with wireless keyboard), YouTube videos, and our collection of movies and TV shows. Located just a few minutes away from the TripAdvisor 'Certificate of Excellence'-winning Rauða Húsið restaurant and just next-door to the local shop.

Guest access
If the weather is nice or you want to get a great view of the sunset, there is a small deck with a bench just behind the building, up on the seawall. It's usually calm there and it's the best spot in town to catch the sunrise or sunset.

Other things to note
If you need to do laundry, let us know. For a small fee, we can wash and dry it for you.

Be prepared that this is a small town things close early and open late, so make sure you have what you need for the next day's breakfast before it gets late. Samkaup in Selfoss is open until 23:00 and from 7:00 a.m., and there's a bakery in Selfoss, but other than that there isn't much open. If you get stuck, let us know.

If you are lucky enough to catch the Northern Lights, the best place to see & photograph them is from the beach at the west end of town (drive past the Rauða Húsið restaurant and down to the end of the paved road, then keep driving on the dirt track until you find the place you want to stop).

Location

Eyrarbakki, South, Iceland

Eyrarbakki is a quiet little town now, but it was once a busy trading port and a critical center of commerce between Iceland and Denmark. Many of the houses are over a hundred years old, and you'll find one of the oldest wooden houses in Iceland in the village (built 1765), which now houses the local folk museum. You can also get the country's best lobster at the local restaurant, the TripAdvisor "Certificate of Excellence"-winning Rauða Húsið, just a 5-minute walk away!

I'm an American living in Iceland. Together with my husband Jóhann (who's Icelandic), we own and manage the local restaurant Rauða Húsið (The Red House) and Hafið Bláa (The Blue Sea). Our apartments are located in the old fish factory in the heart of Eyrarbakki, right on the seaside. This large building was abandoned for many years after the harbor closed and the fishing industry shut down. Piece by piece, we are turning it into apartments for guests. It's perhaps not your typical Airbnb, because the apartments are purpose-built as guest accommodation—but it's a tiny village and we would like to invite more visitors to come and stay without taking family homes off the market. A small part of the building has a 36-bed hostel, and that's where we will meet you with the keys. My husband and I are both avid travelers, having living in Thailand, Mexico, and Honduras before moving to Iceland. We love Iceland and our little village, and we're happy to share it with you! If you're looking for travel advice or a local perspective, don't hesitate to send me a message or ask when you get here. We manage our 15 apartments as a family business with 3 generations involved. We look forward to welcoming you.

During your stay
Feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail any time, with any questions, needs, or special requests. We can provide travel/tour advice, local information, as well as some insight into Icelandic culture and language, if you wish (I'm American and my husband is Icelandic). For the moment, between our 2-year-old son and little daughter (born 11 April 2017), the restaurant, and the hostel, life is quite hectic, but our guests are a priority and if you need anything or just want to have a chat over coffee, send me a message :)
