Cosy Turqoise and Cream room in Akranes - 2 single beds

Bedrooms 1
Space 753 sq. ft.
Property type guest house


About the property

Three story house in the heart of the old town of Akranes. The ground floor has been renovated with new kitchen, bathroom and bedroom fixtures. There is a small lounge. There are 2 rooms available, each with 2 single beds, one with an Orange theme and one with a Turquoise theme. The kitchen has space and utensils for 6 people. It has a stove top, an oven and a microwave. Each room has a private fridge and there is a communal fridge in the kitchen. There is a washing machine and dryer available to use. The kitchen and shower room are shared with the other guests. It has it's own private entrance.

The family lives on the top 2 floors. We have a border collie/Icelandic dog mix. We try to keep her out of the ground floor but sometimes if the door is left open she might visit you downstairs. She is a very friendly dog and you are welcome to play with her in the garden or take her a walk if you wish :)

We are 4 minutes walk from Langisander beach. The local lighthouses can be visited and the new one you can go inside and climb to the top to get an amazing view of the area. The local mountain is about 30 mins walk or 5 mins drive away. It takes about 2 hours to climb to the top of it. Highly recommended. You can write your name in the book at the top of the mountain. Leynir Golf course in the town is about a 10 minute walk from the house.

Our sons have recently left home and so renting out rooms to guests is new for us but welcoming guests has been traditional for us as we run the ex-pat association in Iceland and often have visitors.

There is free internet and free parking, smoking is not allowed.
