Cozy and inviting space with a queen-size bed in the bedroom and two single beds. Just steps away from the sea, looking out over the charming town of Eyrarbakki and the mountains beyond.
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 in the living room are two single beds. There is also a sofa in the lounge with a smart TV with access to the web, 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 where you can get all the basic necessities and breakfast supplies.
Private apartment that is for guest use only, so guests have access to and use of everything. Shares an entrance with one other apartment, also available for rent.
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.
Общение с гостями
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 little son (born March 10), 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 :)
Другие важные подробности
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).
We ask that you leave shoes on the shoe rack at the entrance and not wear them inside. Otherwise, just treat the place with respect. Thank you!
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 9 apartments as a family business with 3 generations involved. We look forward to welcoming you.
