Perfect Location. Perfect House.

  • 5 of 5

We stay in Iceland a few times per year and always rent houses vs staying in hotels. This house, by far, exceeds all other homes we've rented in Iceland. The home itself is stunning. As soon as you walk in the door you are wowed by the quality of the interior and the view outside the floor to ceiling windows is magnificent. But the proximity to Akureyri is what sends this house over the top. To be able to drive to the grocery store in under 10 mins for that item you forgot means A LOT in a country like Iceland. We stayed with another couple but we discussed easily bringing our 2 teens and my mother on a future trip and still having plenty of space. The hot tub is divine after a day of hiking. Thomas introduced us to Polar Hestar for horseback riding and they were incredible. The housekeeper, Sigga, is very responsive for any questions. She even sent her husband over one night when we couldn't figure something out. I highly recommend this house and plan to stay again. Thanks for everything Thomas!!

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.
