Об этом жилье
Cozy one bedroom apartment, complete with sea views and a massage chair. Comfy queen-size bed in the bedroom and sleeper sofa in the living room make it a perfect space for a family or friends traveling Iceland together.
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 the couch in the living room is a sleeper sofa (full size, suitable for 1 adult or 2 children) and another single bed. There is a smart TV with access to the web (with wireless keyboard), YouTube videos, and our collection of movies. There's even a massage chair, great if you've been trekking or spending long hours in the car. Located just a few minutes away from the TripAdvisor 'Certificate of Excellence'-winning Rauða Húsið restaurant and just next-door to the local shop.
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 the restaurant Rauða Húsið (The Red House) in Eyrarbakki. We have three apartments on Airbnb, and we run the hostel next-door, which opened in May of last year. My husband and I are both avid travelers, having living in Thailand, Mexico, and Honduras before moving to Iceland. We really think Iceland and Eyrarbakki, specifically, are just the best, some of the most charming and beautiful places in the world. 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.
