A beautiful home with exceptional views. Watching the Northern Lights from the hot tub was memorable.

We loved both the house and the surroundings (the view from the house is amazing).

The house is spacious, modern, and comfortable; it really had everything (and more) for a good vacation. Even when the weather was bad, the kids enjoyed to play around in the house. The kitchen is excellent, it contains everything we needed. The same goes for the bathrooms, really luxurious. The beds were made up when we arrived and the house was warm and clean. The mattresses are also really good!

Things we never saw in a vacation house: there was a pc with internet and every room had his own speakers. The lights, the curtains and heating are controlled centrally.

The city of Akureyri (5 minutes) offers good shops, a good bakery and some good restaurants.

Excursion we did from the house: Whale watching in Dalvik, the myvatn area (geothermal activity), the big waterfalls in the north (Dettifoss, Sellfoss, Godafoss, ..).

About as good as it gets! Want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We can start with “stunning” and work up from there. Leifsstadir is a holiday home you will remember for all the right reasons. Thomas has made a superb high-spec venue for getting away from it all while still enjoying all the trappings of a thoroughly modern – and conspicuously techie - experience. The house is immaculate, spacious, brilliantly positioned and a great deal of fun. Everything works, from the fully equipped and chic kitchen to the electric curtains and the magnificent sound system. The hot tub on the huge deck provides the perfect way to end the day, taking in the breath taking view up Eyjarfjordur. I am sure Thomas has patented the Akureyri sunset! Last year, we were treated to some spectacular sunsets at his place at Nollur, a few kilometres north of here, and this year brought us the same colour show in the sky. So, “stunning” is only the beginning. Well done and thank you Thomas.

Une maison et une situation incroyable

  • 5 of 5

Sans doute une des plus belles maison que nous avons pu louer. Les volumes sont incroyables et l'ambiance avec la vue sur la baie d'Akureyri est sublime.

Ultra moderne tout se gère facilement par le panneau de controle, le chauffage au sol est agréable, la musique se diffuse dans toutes les pièces, la cuisine est très bien équipée, les chambres spacieuses et très confortables, et le garage parfait après une journée de ski.

Quel plaisir de se prélasser dans le bain chaud en regardant le coucher de soleil ou les aurores boréales.

Check-in et check-out efficace et rapide, sans doute un des meilleurs rapports qualité-prix de cette partie de l'islande.

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

The house Leifssadir is a wonderful, modern and cosy house. It is only a 5 minute drive from Akureyri, 1 hour from Myvatn and Husavik regions. The house has a wonderful wooden (appears bespoke) hot tub and the most beautiful dining table we had ever seen. The house is ultra-modern in style but very cosy and sophisticated. All amenities work as expected and all bedrooms are of a very good size. The living space is very large and the kitchen includes all utensils that you could need.

The owners of Nollur, Thomas and Carmen are extremely helpful and polite They provide a handbook of suggested attractions based on their own experiences and answer questions/ address any concerns extremely quickly. The extra touches added to the service (amazing coffee machine) make leifsstadir stand above other properties we have stayed in. The house manager, Sigga is extremely helpful and deals with any issues immediately. The house was very clean on arrival and has been all each time we have stayed at the house.

This was the 3rd time we have visited leifsstadir and 8th visit to Iceland. This is our favourite house in Iceland, which speaks volumes! The house is EXTREMELY competitively priced and you would struggle to find a better rental in north Iceland. We are already considering our 4th visit to the house and are confident that leifsstadir will continue to please.

We would struggle to identify an issue with this house other than it not being our own!
