The space
The Guesthouse at Fjarðargata 10 is 90 sqm main floor, with fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, a bathtub and 3 bedrooms (5 beds) and a spacious living room overlooking the harbour.
Optional there is a 50 sqm basement, which holds two double-bed bedrooms that are also rented out separately as another listing on Airbnb, except the guests order for more than 5 people.
It is situated in the center of Thingeyri village, very close to all amenities. The house was originally built in 1911 and is known in the village as "Þorbergshúsið", ("The House of Thorbergur"), named after a famous skipper who built it for himself and his family. His son, Leifur, who was also a skipper took over the house after Thorbergur and lived there with his family. Now again the house owned by Thorbergur grandchildren, who were brought up in the house.
