The apartment consists of a bedroom, a living room, a kitchen, a bathroom and a storage room, all of which are roomy. There is a double bed in the bedroom, and 2 people can sleep on the living room couch. There is also a fold-out bed for the 5th person (my daughter loves it and likes to sleep in the warm but airy storage room!) The apartment is on the 3rd (top) floor. Good neighbours. There is a (friendly) dog in the apartment across the hall (just in case you are allergic).
The neighbourhood is a quiet one. Across the street there is a nursing home and there are few other buildings close by. The view from the apartment is great (mountains, valleys, ski area, town). Local buses (which are free in Akureyri) stop right in front of the building. There is a 24-hour supermarket within walking distance and also a small swimming pool with excellent tubs. Town centre and main mall: 5-10 minutes by bus. Beautiful walking paths near by.
I am a translator. I live alone, but I have 3 teenage children who often stay with me and who would probably be traveling with me, although I sometimes travel alone. I have lots of books, mostly in Icelandic and English, and a great collection of popular music (LP's and CD's). I speak Icelandic, English, Danish, some German, and a little Swedish and French.
