Our central, comfortable and airy apartment is a true gem! Located smack in the centre of Akureyri, with stunning view and personal decor, plenty of books to read on a rainy day and easy to reach activities, swimming, museums, cafés and restaurants.
Top floor of a historic house smack down town Akureyri. It is very bright and airy. There are two bedrooms; one master bedroom and another with two 90x200 cm beds that can be put together. The kitchen is very convenient and open, electric burners and oven. The view over the harbor and the neighboring mountains is breathtaking. Free reserved parking, close to main bus station and buzzing down town with lots of restaurants and bars. Two minuet walk to the very active visual scene and to the theater. The public transit in Akureyri is free of charge! Pretty balcony perfect for lunching, reading and observing. What make the place unique is how excellently restored it is, bright and the location is perfect! Our neighbors are quiet, friendly and helpful. Ideal for couples with or without children. We are easy going hosts who love to share our home while we are away.
Interaction with Guests
Usually we are away when our guests check in and out but it is alway easy to reach us.
this is our home and we expect our guests to treat it as such. We will hand over the apartment in a very clean condition and want to walk into it the same as when we leave it. There is no smoking inside but if you must catch a smoke the balcony is perfect. It is an old house and we like our neighbors very much so respect that. We leave a further guidance for you once you arrive regarding where to dispose of trash, recycling etc.
This clean, spacious apartment was stunningly decorated in an art deco style, just a minute walk from the main street and a five minute drive from the local airport.
Our hosts were friendly, easy to communicate with and were happy to answer any of our questions.
There were a number of highlights in the local area, including a large bookshop, brilliant coffee shops and a nearby bottle shop. The swimming pool was a short walk away, and an absolute gem. I'd highly recommend taking an afternoon to relax in the many heated pools and sauna. Supermarkets were a slightly longer walk away, but the nearest was open 24-hours.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this beautiful apartment, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Akureyri.
A beautiful, clean and spacious apartment in a great central location to the town. It was welcoming, warm and even complete with Christmas decorations. Ragnheiður&Bjarni were very welcoming giving us detailed information and exchanging emails before our visit. All was as we hoped for and more. Thank you
R&B have been very very friendly. The communication with them was perfect and they answered all the questions very quickly.
The apartment was wonderful and perfectly central in that beautiful town.
We highly recommend this place (town and apartment) to everyone.
Very nice appartment located near harbour and the center of Akureyri. The view is absolutely grand. We stayed in the appartment with two children and had plenty space. The communication with the host was absolutely perfect and very quick, although we never met them. The flat is very clean and the furniture has a good mix between antique, modern and elegant style and we although get ideas for our home :-)
Thanks a lot, we had a great time.
This was a great place to stay. The most attractive place was the view from the kitchen to the bay en the hills behind.
All together the apartment is big and recently remodeled, ideal for 4 people to stay.
The ladies appreciate the washing machine and the equipped kitchen.

The apartment was simply perfect - spacious, extremely clean, with lovely decor and the kitchen was stocked with various spices, oils and other things, which you don't necessarily want to be buying when on holiday (we even used some flour to make pancakes!).
We never met the owners, but they seem to be very interesting people, judging by the furnishings and books in the flat!
The apartment is located very close to (what appears to be) main shopping street and restaurants.
Will definitely stay there again if visiting Akureyri in future.
Thank you Ragnheiður&Bjarni!
