Do you dream of a place to get away from it all, but still be close enough to explore the highlights of Iceland during your days? Eyrarbakki is the perfect place for you. We are just 10 minutes from Highway 1/Selfoss--just far enough off the beaten path. Our village of about 600 people has been settled for over a thousand years, and in fact was once the center of trade for all of south Iceland. Today, the commerce has moved away, but the history remains. Here by the seaside, we have 16 apartments of different sizes, purpose-built for guests and newly renovated. This listing is for one of two apartments with the same floor plan.
The studio is brand-new construction. We welcomed our first guests in July 2016. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It has a kitchen with refrigerator, microwave, stove, and Senseo coffee maker (stocked with coffee and tea). There is a comfortable large double/king size bed (180x200cm) and a double sofa bed (140x200cm) with high-quality linens and warm, fluffy duvets. There's no view of the ocean from the apartment, but it's just a short walk away, and you can walk along the seaside path along the rocky shore or walk farther to the west to reach a sandy beach.
There is a shop just next-door that carries all essentials, and an excellent restaurant just a short walk away. Many buildings in town are nearly or more than 100 years old and many are named. Enjoy a stroll through the historic village or down the seaside path and enjoy a slow pace of life.
