Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
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.

About this location
Akureyri - is the Pearl of the North - it is probably the only place in Iceland where you can spend your holiday in peace, silence and pristine nature whilst having the comfort of a small town with its outstanding cultural life, with all the sports on offer and the charming café houses and restaurants.
Akureyri is worth a visit all year round - whether you spend your holiday under the midnightsun or the polar lights - you can be sure that it will be an experience of a life time. And even though we are at the fringe of the Arctic, it almost never gets seriously could, having an average temperature of minus 2°C (28 F) in the winter.
You can walk straight up to Sulur, the mountain above Akureyri, you can hire horses for daily tours or a midnight sun ride, you can hire kayaks or join professional diving, hire a bicycle, play golf on the northern most 18 whole golf ground, go on a angling trip, have a walk along the fjord and in winter ski or do cross-country skiing in the best ski resort in Iceland with view of the fjord, amazing! Akureyri has a lot of charm with its old town and in the many cafés you make a break and enjoy Icelandic cake. If you are keen on art, Akureyri offers you different galleries and there are lots of professional music concerts - as well all summer long - a music festival. Moreover, it is only a short ride to the waterfall Godafoss & the volcanic area of Myvatn and many more places of interests. We are happy to advice you on hidden beauties of the North.
