The Space

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.

  • 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!

  • We waren helemaal weg van het appartement. We zouden er zo willen wonen, leuk ingericht. Verder heeft het een geweldig uitzicht over de baai en ligt het vlak naast de winkelstraat, wat gezellig is (je hebt geen last van geluid). Vanuit Akureyri is het goed te doen om Myvatn en Husavik etc. te bekijken.

    Het huren ging erg soepel en bij aankomst klopte alles met sleutel, parkeerplaats etc. Bij binnenkomst lag er een zeer uitgebreide omschrijving over praktische informatie in de buurt (goeie bakker etc), wat we erg handig vonden.

  • We absolutely loved Ragnheiður and Bjarni's apartment (it gave me ideas to redecorate my own place.) It is wonderfully located near many cafés, restaurants and stores with a convenient parking spot.

    Communication was straightforward, check-in was incredibly simple and they provided a ton of detail on the apartment and the surrounding area which was very helpful.

    We'd definitely recommend others stay here.

  • this was a great apartment!! beautiful, very clean, much bigger than we expected. the kitchen was well stocked, big bright windows, a big bathtub/shower and very comfortable beds. we never met our hosts, but they were very helpful via email and left very clear instructions about things in the apartment, as well as accurate, easy to follow directions to local sights. the location was fabulous, easy walking distance to the swimming pool, all the great shops down town, etc. would stay there again in a heartbeat

  • We loved the apartment. It is conveniently located with its own parking space. The apartment receives a lot of light throughout the day, and the kitchen overlooks the fjord, making for a lovely place to eat breakfast. The bed was quite comfortable, and the kitchen had all the cooking implements we needed. Ragnheiður and Bjarni were easy to communicate with.

  • Ragnheiður and Bjarni were wonderful to work with, very communicative and helpful. The apartment is in the best location for visiting Akureyri – very central – and is both beautiful and comfortable. Best of all, there are lovely views of the city in every direction. I came to Akureyri with the goal of working on a writing project, and consequently spent more time indoors than I normally do when traveling, so the views were a MARVELOUS advantage!

  • This apartment is absolutely perfect--beautifully decorated, sunny, well-equipped kitchen (we cook A LOT even on vacation) and very comfortable. The location is excellent--on the main shopping street in the front with gorgeous views right onto the fjord from the kitchen in the back. Only a few blocks walk, through a lovely garden, to the city pool (our family voted this one the best pool of all the ones we visited in Iceland). Definite plus: a private parking spot in back. We would highly recommend.

  • This was our first time renting through Airbnb, and I am sure we will do it again since our stay in Akuyeri was perfect. The apartment was just what we were looking for: clean, spacious, charming, and centrally located. Instructions were clear and advice for the area was helpful.
    A great first experience for a well-traveled family of four!

  • This was the perfect place to stay in Akureyri. It was spacious, clean, tastefully decorated and right near shops and restaurants. The communication was smooth, quick and easy to follow. We hope we can come back to Iceland one day and would definitely recommend to stay here.

  • Ragnheidir & Bjarni's place is located in the city center of Akureyri.
    It's quite, beautifully furnished and has a nice view. We were very happy to be there after our trek.
    I would definitely recommend their house.
