Photos and Description of this Northeast holiday villa

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

The house Leifsstadir is located in the outskirts of Akureyri at the easter hillside of the Eyafjord. The spacious house has all comfort and is suitable for up to eight people.

The 12'000 m2 property grants privacy and for the security of our guests an alarm equiplent and security cameras are installed.

When selecting the materials and furnitures we only chose good design and best quality. There are antique items and protected rare items in the house.

The house has been acquired in October 2014. It has been renovated until July 2015.

Please note that this is a strictly non smoking environment.

Exclusive Villa in the vincinity of Akureyri
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews


  • 5 of 5

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.

Eine wunderschöne Villa

  • 5 of 5

Eine absolut geniale Villa im Norden. Dieses Haus lässt keine Wünsche offen! Top ausgerüstete Küche, schöne Zimmer, ein grosser super Hot Pot, der sogar für uns (9 Personen) reichte. Genügend Platz für alle und eine schöne Aussicht auf Akureyri und die Berge. Hier waren wir bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal!!!

Lieben Dank an alle Yvonne, Marcel, Raphael und Kim

Absolutely fantastic property, beautiful views, genuinely luxurious feel.

  • 5 of 5

This property is truly exceptional. It has everything you could want from a temporary home from home; large rooms, all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay, and superb views across Akureyri and the estuary through the floor to ceiling glass windows and doors. It is also really well located as a base to explore Northern Iceland - we had a day trek to Husavik for whale-watching, and another to the Lake Myvatn area, and we were home in time to eat out in Akureyri with no problem at all. We all really hope that we will be able to stay there again one day, we absolutely loved it.

Exceptional stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this property, and it was roomy enough to fit 7 people comfortably. Situation on a hill accessible via a private road, the property offers an unobstructed view of beautiful mountains from the deck. In addition, the kitchen, dining, and living areas are opened and connected, which created a huge open space for group gatherings.

We arrived at night, so that it was a bit difficult to locate the property; however, the property manager we worked with was professional and courteous even though we found the place a bit after the scheduled time. We would definitely book this place the next time we visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment. We will install a sign with some Spotlights at the road so it will be easier to find the house in future. Thank you for your stay. You are always welcome back!
