Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and the bedrooms were nice and spacious. The kitchen and living room were amazing. The master bath was very nice and spacious. The view outside was worth the whole trip to Akureyri. 5 minutes to downtown. We had a family of 6 and there was plenty of room. The laundry room was spacious as well. We would definitely recommend this place to others and would stay here again if we were returning to Akureyri.

Beautiful,spacious,clean, organize house overlooking a wow! view of Mountains (Sulur & Glerardalur)

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this beautiful House Leifsstadir, it is clean and very organized with a wow factor of the nature's backdrop. Thomas and Sigga are quick to reply to our needs.

We loved the Japanese handcrafted soaking tub.This place is so relaxing.

Kitchen has cook wares and wine glasses. Rooms are clean and bathrooms are spacious. If you need to wash your clothes, the washroom is available.

They are environmentally conscious too, a good practice we do here in CA. Very close to the Airport and downtown Akureyri. They have nice restaurants, bakery and shops. By the way refer to the house's well written brochure , it contain information about Akureyri.

Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back and hoping that House Leifsstadir will be available for the Northern Lights experience.

Beautiful and relaxing ...

  • 5 of 5

This property is well-located for exploring Akureyri and taking day trips to the Lake Myvatn area, and on up toward Dettifoss. The views across the fjord are stunning. Space worked well for 6 adults and a baby.

Very comfortable, clean and enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here while we were on a backcountry ski trip in the area. Great views of the mountains above Akureyri and across the airport. It was a quiet spot and the airport was far enough away to not hear the planes. The hot tub is nice and was used everyday.

We would stay here again.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely two nights here. The home is beautiful and had everything we needed...the hot tub was especially nice. It was the perfect place to relax after a long, snowy day. The house manual had some nice suggestions for things to do in the area which we appreciated very much. Check in with Sigga was a breeze and Thomas was quick to respond to any questions prior to our arrival. Washer and dryer were a big plus! Beautiful view of Akuyeri as well!

Exceptional house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a long weekend in March to go ski touring and surfing in Northeast of Iceland. The house was exceptional - fantastic comfort, an abundance of space and indoor parking added to the value. We arrived late without issues, and everything from booking to check-in and check-out was very smooth. Highly recommended!
