About our home

Our lovely apartment is on the second floor in an apartment building on a very quiet street in Akureyri. It is 120 square meters (393 square feet).

It has two spacious bedrooms, one master bedroom with a double bað and one kids room with bunk beds and a lot of toys.
Our living room is very spacious with a dining table, a very big and comfortable sofa and a flatscreen with Apple TV.
Our bathroom is very spacious with a bathtub.
Our fully equipped kitchen is wonderful for family gathering.

We love our new home, it has a mixture of new and old furnitures and we are always improving it to becoming the home we want it to be.
