About the property

16'000 m2 land, steam bath, hot tub, grill, exclusive equipment

This exclusive villa is very well situated just opposite Akureyri. It is rented by celebrities but also by other people who enjoy the location and the high standard of the house. It was built by the Icelandic architect Fanney Hauksdottir in 2006. It was recently refurbished with high-quality equipment such as ReVoX audio equipment as well as with attractive materials such as walnut, shale and glass.

The house is surrounded by a 16'000 m2 garden and a security fence. An alarm system and cameras ensure safety for the guests. Any kind of additional service is available on request.

During winter snow drifts may block road access to the house. The road to our fence and the driveway is not maintained during winter time. In this case a short walk (400 meters) is necessary. If you have difficulties with this, have a look at our house Leifsstadir:

Please note that this is a strictly non-smoking environment.

This is the place to stay in Akureyri. Thomas very was very responsive and Sigga helped us with the logistics of the place. The hot tub and steam sauna were great. We will be back soon ;)

We never wanted to leave

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon here. The house was absolutely gorgeous. Location was perfect. The bed was comfortable. The amenities were excellent. The view breathtaking. We enjoyed every second of our stay in this house. The downstairs showers had some need of cosmetic repair. But we will stay here again in the future.

An experience of a lifetime.

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible place to stay. If you want to live like a movie star for the week, this is the place. Hot tub, pool, steam room, controls that operate everything in the house, great sound system. You can't go wrong here.

Amazing view over the bay and city. Would stay here again with no hesitation.

A stunning property in an equally stunning setting.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great four days in Akureyri and coming home to this place was a highlight. Our arrival was easy with just a phone call ahead and the house was warm and ready for us, the photo's do not really reflect how nice the house is. The hot tub was a great place to relax in the evening and the music system is superb. Our only negativity was that it would have been nice to have a few essentials such as a basic food pack and toiletries to make it more homely.

The House is beautiful architecturally but extremely functional and purposeful. The sweeping views of the city and surrounding mountains was stunning. Certainly made it less enticing to leave since the home was so comfortable. The hot tub was great and having fresh water for ever soak was amazing, the hot tube filled in 20 mins. Some folks complained about this but for us that was great since we had fresh clean water ever time. Heated floors and floor to ceiling windows. Sigga was very accommodating and a great host. We are already planning our return trip.

One of a kind architecture

  • 5 of 5

The local host was helpful and friendly. The House was beautifully maintained. The view was a constant source of awe. The architecture alone was worth the time to stay in this home. Our only regret was we could not stay longer. We hope to be able to return at sometime in the future. Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home for a few days.

The house Hrafnabjörg is one of the most attractive houses in Iceland. It is located on a hill just opposite the city center of Akureyri with a magnificent view to the fjord. The short distance to the city, the opportunities for trips and the standard of the house are one of it's kind.
