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!

A superb home with excellent kitchen and bathrooms with a great view over Akureyri

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay for 4 days in January. House was really warm, kitchen well appointed with lots of utensils for cooking. Large house with plenty of room for a large family. Hot pot was a great place to sit and look out for the Northern lights (no luck though) or just look out over the lights of Akureyrie in the distance . I think it was really good value, particularly when compared with other rentals in Akureyrie.

The perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

This home is all you could hope for when renting a home and then some! The proximity to Akureyri was wonderful and the views of the city were amazing. The home was beautifully adorned and extremely comfortable. Sigga, was prompt with answering any questions we had and even met us at the home when we arrived to give us a rundown of all of the systems. If you have the chance to rent this home you should do it!

This house is amazingly roomy, very well equipped, warm, comfortable and in an amazing location. Sigga the house keeper was at the end of the phone when we had questions. Great for groups or families.

Spacious, modern, comfortable...awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

Easily the best accommodation I've had on Homeaway. Very well appointed...beautiful deck and stunning view. The freshwater hot tub adds a lot and is the easiest thing to operate. Great location...close to town and about an hour from Lake Myvatn. The property owner and manager were extremely helpful. I'd highly recommend to anyone.

The perfect scenic overlook in Akureyri

  • 5 of 5

Great, functional space with multiple bathrooms and plenty of space for our group of 6 adults and 2 babies. The high points are the enormous patio that overlooks the town of Akureyri and the fjord adjacent to it, as well as the hot tub. It was close enough to town to go in for a meal or coffee at any point, and Akureyri is the perfect home base to explore all of Northern Iceland. We did have a little trouble with filling the hot tub...just realize that it can sometimes take 4-5 hours to fill it up and you should be good to go. When we come back, we will definitely stay here!
