Akureyri, Northeast Region
This completely refurbished house from 1920 is a real treasure. Once a revered local shop it has turned into a unique, precious apartment - the noble lamps and the Swiss stone pine bed are tributes to its fine history.

All furniture and all interior is brandnew, the double bedroom is spacious, the twin bedroom is divided by a folding screen from the living and dining room. You have an amazing view to both sides of the house, from the living room you can see a wonderful garden with a stream purling down and from the kitchen you can view the fjord in only a 100m distance.

The swimming pool, playgrounds for the children, bookstore, restaurants, café houses, bakery as well as groccery stores are all in easy walking distance. It is a truly privileged quiet central location.

This apartment was quiet and roomy and within walking distance of restaurants and main attractions. It worked perfectly for our family of four. This location is a great base for enjoying Akureyri and taking day trips to Myvatn.

We had a wonderful time staying at this centrally located little haven. Andreas keeps the apartments well furnished, warm and stylishly designed to meet your needs. He (and his fairy wife) are wonderful hosts that go above and beyond to make it a unique and passionate experience. We cannot wait until their yoga studio is completed and we get to...

The studio apartment turned out to be at least a one bedroom apartment which a second small bedroom had been created with a divider yet it was still spacious. There is a great kitchen and spacious bathroom with washing machine and drier in it and fully equipped. One cannot say enough about...
