  • We have not been able to sleep at her place, according to an accident in her house. BUT: She managed to organice a new accomodation, paid the difference and has been helping us, although she wasnt our host anymore. So I need to say thank you for this awesome support. Some people should take you as a role model! Thank you!

  • If you're looking for a caring host, then Kristjana is the number one AirBnB superhost - nothing phased her and her attention to our needs was astonishing and wonderful ... Ólafsfjörður is an amazing location, quiet, and stunning. Well worth a visit.

    Eric2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • The Appartement was perfekt!! In the middle of the little town. The bed was super cozy. We had a washmachine and a dryer. The kitchen has more than you need and the bathroom was clean and big too.!!

    Miriam2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • The space was huge, comfortable and has one of the best equipped kitchens I have ever experienced in my numerous Airbnb stays! It would also be an excellent choice for a longer stay than mine (2 nights), plenty of beautiful countryside to explore and things to do nearby. Truly a family lodging. Kristana is wondrful. Very helpful and quick in response to requests.

    Dannie2019-10-07T00:00:00Z

  • We had some unfortunate circumstances come up that didn’t allow us to stay here, but it looked like it would have been great! She was very gracious and understanding about everything, which was greatly appreciated.

    A welcoming newly renovated one bedroom apartment in the legendary skitown, Olafsfjordur. It has all you would need after a long day of skiing, sightseeing or whatever you are interested in doing in the beautiful North-Iceland. Take a dip in the hot tub or just relax on the couch in front of the TV. A nice swimming pool is only 250 meters away, with water slides, hot tubs, sauna, and a gym. Nordic ski tracks are just 25 meters away and two famous ski areas are 15 minutes drive in each direction.
  • Þorsteinn’s place was wonderful! There was a LOT more space than we needed and the entire apartment was sparkling clean and very well organized. The hot tub was the perfect way to end our ridiculously long day of travel, and it was amazing waking up to the stunning views of the mountains in the fjords. We will definitely be staying again on our next trip to northern Iceland!

    Kelley2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We couldnt have asked for a better stay. We received a warm greeting despite it being late in the evening. The lovely owners showed us how the tv wifi etc and had even cleared all the snow from in front of the Hot tub for us. We got hit by a bad storm during our first night and they accommodated us the next night which really was much appreciated. Thank you for making our first 2 nights in Iceland very special! We cant wait to come back to catch the lights while in that amazing hot tub!

    Laura2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very spacious and clean. The use of the hot tub is completely problem-free and definitely recommended. þorsteinn and his wife are very good hosts. They were always approachable and helped us a lot.

    Karina2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • What a nice place and hosts! The place was big, clean, well equipped and the beds were so comfortable. The hosts were so kind and friendly. The hot tub was a plus even if we didn’t get to use it. The best part was seeing the Northern Lights from the deck!

    Chiara2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Everything in this apartmant was great and we could use jacuzzi ❤ I certainly recommend this place for everyone

    Lenka2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very good. It is the silver below from the marriage house itself. It has its own entrance, so you are at ease. Without a doubt, the best thing about the house is where it is located and the jacuzzi. It makes you have relax and rest on hard days. We were lucky, on a clear night, to see the Northern Lights from the door of the house. Something incredible. We would surely repeat.

    Alejandro2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very large and clean apartment. We really enjoyed having so much space and the comfortable living room area and beautiful hottub. We missed not having a microwave and kettle but not a huge deal, we worked around it using the stove instead. It is probably also important to mention that the one pullout sofa in the living room area is very small and was not long enough for any of us to sleep on unless you slept sideways or in an L which really isn’t practical. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and found the apartment more then met our needs.

    Amanda2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • The owner lives on the second floor and the first floor is Airbnb. The accommodation is really tidy and the owner is very friendly. It is recommended

    Dæmi um það sem er nálægt eigninni minni: frábært útsýni. Það sem heillar fólk við eignina mína er rýmið utandyra, hverfið og birtan. pör, ævintýramenn sem eru einir á ferð og fjölskyldur (með börn) njóta sín vel í eigninni minni.
  • Lovely apartment with great views. Did it very well, thanks for me.

    Kristjana2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was perfect for us. Cozy. Great location. Wonderful views. Clean. Well stocked. A lovely little home. Was just two of us this time. But I will definitely try to visit again with my family.

  • This house was very cozy with a beautiful view. I felt at home as soon as I walked in the front door. It is convenient to a restaurant that has wonderful pizza. The beds were very comfortable, the house was warm and snug, and the shower was great!

    Karen2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • A cozy apartment with a beautiful view over the town and harbour. Axel is a great host, very helpful and responded quickly to my queries.

    Magna2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Axel’s place was very cozy stay! Communication was good and finding the place was very easy. I wish it was a little closer to Akureyri - it wasn’t as convenient for us as we would have liked but just make sure to plan your trip accordingly!

    Samiksha2019-08-15T00:00:00Z

    A small and newly renovated apartment with a access to a garden. We try to offer a really laid back and relaxing atmosphere at our house.
    The apartment is very recently renovated and has all the modern amenities that you can expect. Modern floor heating, power saving lights and recycling is just a part of our Slow Living lifestyle and we try to make the apartment reflect that.
    A very calm and nice neighborhood with good views over the surrounding mountains and a short walk into the nature.
  • Nice cozy place with some epic mountain view from the windows. Thanks

    Filip2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place ! We stayed 3 nights to ski tour the fjords around and really felt at home. The wake up view from the bed on the mountains from is amazing ! And a special quote for the warm floor that was appreciated after a day out in the cold ^^

    Antoine2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend the apartment. Equipment and cleanliness were very good and the hosts were very friendly, helpful and always available.

    Mathias2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • A very cute and cozy place to stay, we liked it a lot! You have mountain view from the bedroom and kitchen. All rooms are separated so they comfortably accommodate 3 people. Also there are great spots to see northern lights nearby. Recommend!

    Olesya2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Super comfy and great interior. We loved everything and enjoyed every second in this apartment. You can even see the snow-capped mountains out of the kitchen and bedroom.

  • Cozy modern stylish home. Perfectly private space. Super clean and very warm floor and you can stay with T- shirt even outdoor is icy snow. Bedroom, kitchen, living room and bath room, all are just good enough space for two. Sami was kind to us when we asked something. The town center is easily walking distance. We want to come back again. Highly recommended. Thank you, Sami for having us.

    Ólafsfjörður, Northeast, Iceland

    Spacious Cottage on a the mountain hill-side by the lake, Ólafsfjarðarvatn. It is a traditional Icelandic summer house with two bedrooms, bathroom and a big living area with a kitchen. Surrounded by a wooden terrace, beautiful garden and endless mountain views. 3min by car to town, Ólafsfjörður.
    Our cottage is unique because of the nature and silence surrounding it. It has endless views over the lake and nordic mountains. As there are no street-lights by the cottage, it is easy to see the stars and northern lights.
    Our cottage is our second home and we love to share the experience. It is family friendly and great for relaxing.
  • The Nordic Cottage or Tonabaer ( The House of Music) is a fabulous, relaxing private cottage. Everything you need has been thoughtfully provided. It is cosy and welcoming and very warm. The view is stunning. We saw northern lights from the terrace. Lea was such a great host. Nothing was too much trouble and she helped us with many queries and even sent us a text or two to tell.us when to loo out for the northern lights. I thoroughly recommend the cottage. It's fabulous with a great host.

    Carole Green2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place with a beautiful view on the lake, calm and remote location, nice little cabin with everything you need to have a nice stay. The contact with the host and check-in and check-out was great, the responses were very fast. The view from the terrace and the surroundings were amazing. If I was to point out any downside, maybe there could be a bit more light (some small bedside lamp in one bedroom and something over the table in the living room), but this is just a small detail compared to the beauty of the place and the comfort of the cabin. I would certainly recommend this place for a stay in Northern Iceland.

    Maria2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Leas Cottage is heavenly situated and offers a beautiful view to the lake. The cottage is quiet and surrounded by greenery, so you can relax very well. It is equipped with everything you need. Suitable for couples as well as families. We can highly recommend the cottage!

    Petra2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is the perfect getaway. The views are amazing and the space is clean. It was the perfect fit for my husband and I and was close to all the things we wanted to go see.

    Haleigh2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lea's place is fantastic! The location is great, with an amazing view over the lake. The house itself is beautiful with a great outdoor space too. Lea was the perfect host, meeting us on arrival and showing us around and offering us local tips. I can't reccomend her place highly enough!

    Joe2019-08-27T00:00:00Z

    Ægir Rafn2019-08-19T00:00:00Z

There is a pool with water slide and view of mountains right next to the home and a grocery store just down the hill. We really enjoyed it.

    Welcome to Höfði! We offer a nice and cosy summerhouse in a stunning location in Dalvik, surrounded by the Svarfadardalur Nature Reserve, a sanctuary for bird watching! Litli, our “Small Guy”, fits 2 people perfectly. It has a well equipped kitchen, a confortable sofa bed and a private bathroom. Outside there is a nice terrace with barbecue, table and chairs. Shower and a Finnish Sauna are private and close by, in a cottage few steps away from Litli's main door. Free Wi-Fi, TV and Radio.
    Several walking trails start from this area, and a lot of them are connected to the bird watching activity in the Nature Reserve. This is the place where whale watching excursions start. Great walking trails depart from this area too, and a lot of them are connected to the bird watching activity in the Nature Reserve. Enjoy the northern lights in winter or the midnight sun in summer… you’ll never forget it!
  • Lorenzo is an awesome host! And the little cottage is awesome as well! We spend three nights there and were sad that we had to leave due to a snowstorm. But even under this circumstances Lorenzo did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. We got very good recommendations and enjoyed our private sauna! Definitely worth a stay! If we come back to northern Iceland we'll come back to Lorenzo!

    Daniel2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Litli cabin was small and cute. We stayed here for its easy access to the Beer Spa, which is less than a ten minute drive. Lorenzo was there to welcome us. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this cute little cabin!

    Charla2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • It is a little house with beautiful views, everything was very clean and the owner very friendly. The shower was not inside the house but it was right next door, next to a sauna that could also be used.

    Eunice2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • All time favorite!

    Marius2019-10-19T00:00:00Z

    Isabella2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay. There is a separate sauna and shower apart from the cabin itself, which is pretty cool. Would recommend.

    Our Cottage is one of a kind. It's modern, yet rustic, with large windows in all direction for the best view over the lake and mountains. It sits in a hill above Lake Ólafsfjörður and comes with a fishing permit. There is no light pollution in the area and therefore the winter nights light up the stars and the Northern Lights. The cottage is spacious with two double bed rooms. Its only 5min drive from town Ólafsfjörđur.
    The neighbourhood is very tranquil. It is primarily a summerhouse area with farms as well. During summer you can hear sheep roam in a distance and birds singing. During winter its totally still and with no light pollution, you can see the northern lights dancing above. Surrounding the cottage are mountains, valleys and fjord Ólafsfjörður. The lake is full of fish and in winter it freezes. Locals go cross-country skiing on it during winter as well as skating, ice-fishing and snowmobiling. In the summer locals go pole-fishing, kayaking and sailing on it. It is an arctic heaven all year round!
  • Super comfortable chalet by the lake. Isolation in nature with a view of the mountains while being in a super cozy cottage, the perfect combination! Léa is a great host very welcoming, she sent us messages on the activities to do or when an aurora borealis arrived

    Emmanuelle2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Very kind host and great house. I want to recommend it to you.

    徳教2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had a relaxing few days in this beautiful cottage in the remote north east. The host Lea was incredibly helpful and friendly. The location was peaceful and quiet even though there were just a few other cottages nearby. The cottage was also surprisingly spacious inside, and was very well equipped. Siglufjordur a quaint little fishing town isn’t too far away, and we visited a couple of times. Overall, a very pleasant stay and somewhere we would definitely consider staying again.

    Susan2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning cottage, stunning location. A really superb place to stay. Lea was friendly and welcoming, quick with communication and patient when we couldn't find where to meet her. She was also helpful with local-knowledge updates as to road conditions etc. Really enjoyed our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone else.

    David2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • THIS PLACE IS STUNNING! I’ve been to Iceland several times now, but I have never ventured this far north. It’s well worth the drive and your time. Coming in winter is met with some risks, make sure you check the road maps before you head out anywhere and absolutely rent a 4x4!! The weather will change up here in minutes and rarely follows a predicted pattern. We missed a storm that shut down the country by a few hours, but we did get stuck in a snowstorm and the 4x4 turned out to be a life saver for us. In terms of the cabin, it couldn’t be more perfect. It’s a five minute drive into a tiny town utterly obsessed with Christmas and it’s like something out of a movie. They had the Christmas market on when we went down and there was such a sense of community, Lea even gave us some of her home made alcohol (which was genuinely delicious). The cabin is close enough to Akureyri and other bigger town so it doesn’t feel like you’re completely isolated, but that tranquility is what makes the cabin so idyllic. We stepped foot out the front door to a pretty vivid northern lights display on the last night, the stars are so bright out there. Lea was a fantastic host. She responded quickly, gave great advice about local hot spots (go and visit the hot pots in Hauganes!) - and made sure the place had all the right amenities and was sparkling clean on arrival. Just a couple little tips for anyone reading. The kettle was shorting the power in the cabin, just put it in a different socket and it should do the trick! Also, the WiFi password is in the menu of the dongle, just go into settings and the passwords there. I can’t recommend this place enough, and if you’re brave enough to come up in winter, just book your flights already and do it. It’s breathtaking!

  • This cabin is absolutely spectacular! From the cabin itself, to the picturesque views and topping everything off was seeing the Northern Lights from the balcony! Highly recommend this cabin to everyone visiting the north of Iceland! Slice of modern design in the middle of the mountains by the lake!

  • Can’t say enough good things about this cottage! Whether you’re traveling with just one other person or a small group, this place is amazing! The sauna and hot tub are very accessible and easy to work, and the view from the front is amazing. Lorenzo is a great host who replies quickly, so if you have questions, he’ll help you out quickly!

    Matt2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in Dalvik. The view from the hot tub was nice and everything was super clean. Would be happy to stay here again.

    Sara2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy Cottage with breathtaking fews. We really enjoyed our stay in Dalvik. We really felt at home in the cottage and loved everything, especially the sauna and hot tub. The communication with Lorenzo was easy and he even went out of his way to send me my kindle, which I had forgotten in the cottage. Thanks so much for that.! We definetly recommend a stay in the cottage!

    Jutta2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was good to be able to use jacuzzi. The radiator was so full that I could stay the warmest in Iceland and the kitchen utensils were clean and versatile. The bathroom is a bit old but tidy. The scenery is good and you can relax right away, just 10 minutes after the Dalvik Whale Tour. Host Lorenzo was friendly and gave a quick message.

    Sora2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and very nice view. Well equipped and we really enjoy the barbecue facilities. Highly recommend!

    Theorn2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here in Dalvik for one night as our family was driving the Ring Road around Iceland. We were going Whale Watching with Arctic Sea Tours and this house was close to our departure destination. It was a cute home with a beautiful large window and incredible view. It was a bit tight for our family of 7 adults, but we managed. There was a microwave but no oven, which was fine for us since we weren’t planning to do major cooking. We used both the sauna and the hot tub. Overall, very cute place! Great communication from Lorenzo. Would definitely recommend.

The cabin is well equipped and has new quality mattresses made up with comfortable linen, soft towels and warm blankets. The area is extremely peaceful. In the backyard is a heated football court and a playground for kids.
    Being a wooden cabin, it underlines the natural surroundings of mountains, valleys and river. It is a perfect safe-haven for both active tourists are the ones liking low-tourism, where you can unwind in the outdoor hot tub with breathtaking views.
    The neighbourhood is the wast valleys and mountains that are in the bottom of fjord Ólafsfjörður. There are rivers, waterfalls and a hot-spring nearby, as well as a horse farm where guests can go for horse back riding tours.

  • We had traveled to Iceland over Christmas, shortly before a violent blizzard swept across Iceland and the north had blocked many roads, unfortunately also to our accommodation. Lea then kindly provided us with another nearby, which we thought was very friendly and accommodating. We spent the first night there too, but the next morning we decided to drive along the path because it actually seemed to be free that morning. (In the evening it was still full of snow, not passable with an SUV) No sooner said than done, lo and behold, the way was clear to the area where we wanted to go. We then stamped the 200 meters to the hut ourselves through the high snow and had then reached it and then called Lea if we could not switch to the booked hut. That was December 24th and Lea was so friendly and courteous that she had absolutely no problem with it. The hut was relatively small but absolutely sufficient for us, the equipment is nice and it is very comfortably furnished, with a lot of wood on the walls. Since it is somehow geothermally heated under the hut, this means underfloor heating everywhere. Even outside around the hut it is heated, very practical since the snow is right outside the door. The whirlpool is an absolute dream, huge !!! Under the open sky, and when it is not cloudy and you are outside at the right time, you can see the northern lights. What we would particularly like to mention is that the entire water does not smell of sulfur at all !!! In our eyes this is a very big plus! The place is very nice and it is less than 10 km to the supermarket. So we will check back in this hut when we are back in Iceland. Thanks Lea for everything!

  • really nice and clean house with stunning surroundings. We used it as a base for ski touring and it was nice for that.

    Marie2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Gudrun's place is as spectacular as the pictures lead you to believe - even when covered in snow! We knew it would be a bit of a risk being the end of February, but made the most of being snowed in to this mountainside retreat. The heated floors and hot tub are all you need to stay cozy, and when the clouds clear, the view simply can't be beat. The home has everything you need for home-cooked meals and a great night's sleep. Not to mention, the wonderful neighbor who plowed us out each day, saving the second half of the vacation!! Would love to return when we can see the grass ;)

    Christina2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The house is even better then expected. The hottop, fireplace and huge glass facade is perfect to watch the beautiful nature and northern lights. There is really nothing missing or if so they will organize it. For us it was the best place to go horse riding, snow mobile raceing and visit godafoss and all the places arround. It is a beautiful place! If we ever come back to iceland we will definitly stay in this house again.

    Jens2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Gudrun’s place was beautiful! Amazing and breathtaking views. She has a caretaker, which his help was honestly was one of the best parts of our stay. He made sure we had everything, took care of the snow for us every single day, made sure we were safe and his humility was like none ever seen before. The house has every amenity you’ll need to stay in and enjoy the views and quiet. It has been one of our best stays so far. Will definitely love to visit again.

    Carmen2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is every bit as stunning as the pictures and more. We stayed during early January. The cabin was warm and cozy while offering an amazing view of the mountains and Northern Lights. The heated floors were wonderful. I stayed with my family of four, there was plenty of room for us to enjoy each other’s company while still having private space during our extended holiday. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook meals. The hot tub was a welcomed retreat after a long day of snowmobiling. There was plenty of closet/storage room to help us keep organized during our stay.

    Lynn2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing! We stayed for ten days over Christmas and wish we could have stayed longer. The house was sparkling clean with all the amenities we could have wanted and beautiful views which stretched across the valley. The underfloor heating was an especially nice touch. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub after days of playing in the snow. Northern lights were visible on a few of the nights which was an added bonus. Gudrun is amazing and provided a lot of detailed communication with caring touches. The house’s caretaker, Sigurdur, was wonderful as well and even in the midst of his wife expecting a child he found time to help us with the few odd questions we had. We would go back in a heartbeat.

    Latham2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in Skriða. The house is situated just next to the mountains. It was a real pleasure to wake up with such a view and spend our evenings in the hot tube. Everything was very clean and Gudrun always answered our questions and sent us a lot of information about places to visit, about the weather. Thank you very much for this unforgettable experience!

    Margaux2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful home with amazing views. We got hit with a blizzard while we were there and didn't mind being stuck inside a little bit more than usual when we could sit back and enjoy the views and the hot tub. I recommend you drive up past dalvik through the first long one lane tunnel - the views when you come out of the tunnel of mountain touching water is beautiful! Especially in the snow.

  • The cottage is cute and offers a place of solitude for a couple or a family. It offers a kitchenette and refrigerator for a couple days worth of food so you can cook and eat their. The location has beautiful vistas of the mountains and even a view of a glacier. If it is a clear night you may be able to see the northern lights in a spectacular fashion!

    Sam2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most beautiful place we stayed in Iceland! The pictures are 100% accurate but you have to see it to believe it. The host Jan was super communicative and gave us great tips for the area. The inside of the cottage was just as pretty as the outside and the outdoor shower was incredible. A hot shower standing in the mountains! Nothing better! Absolutely recommend this place!!!

    Emily2019-09-27T00:00:00Z

    Grzegorz2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • This location is off the beaten path and a little harder to get to, but we had no trouble. It is secluded and offers and excellent view. Well stocked amenities. It is a cute little cabin with plenty of room and good wifi. Outdoor shower seemed questionable but we ended up loving it! One of our favorite stays in Iceland.

    Matt2019-09-13T00:00:00Z

  • Loved this cabin outside of Dalvik! The outdoor shower was a fun experience, and we enjoyed grilling and cooking dinner after our long days of driving around, whale watching and other sightseeing, and museums. The views were incredible! Our only wish is if the bed was a bit longer as my husband is 6’3” (190 cm) - was too short for him.

    Dalvík, Dalvíkurbyggð, Troll Peninsula-North Iceland, Iceland

    A small apartment in the north. It's one of the oldest houses in Ólafsfjörður with VERY small rooms and a TINY restroom. Situated next to the beautiful church and few minutes away from the swimming pool and local coffee house as well as grocery store. The bedrooms DO NOT have doors and you walk through one to enter the other one. The apartment has and old heating system that runs hot water through the pipes constantly, with associated noise, but keeping the apartment quite warm.
    One of the oldest houses in Ólafsfjörður, not recommended if looking for luxury, but has a lovely aura and alot of charm.
    The still waters of Ólafsfjörður Lake often mirror Ólafsfjörður town, its surrounding mountains and the sky above. Occasionally a trout breaks the surface, as a reminder of what is up and what is down in this mysterious mountain retreat. The lake has a long-lived reputation for mystery, not least because both fresh-water and salt-water fish are caught in it.
  • Such a great little apartment and in the perfect location. Just 45 minutes from Akureyri. Only a few more bites walk from a fun pool, grocery store and coffee shop. We loved “Troll Town!”

    Lyndsey2018-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and cozy apartment. It was a great stay and Hanna was a very good host.

    Stephanie2018-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • We went to north Iceland for scuba diving and rented this apartment. It is about 35-40 minutes drive to the Strytan dive center which was no problem att all. The apartment had all the facilities expected. Wish I had fishing rod with me as there seems to be godd fishing nearby.

    Peyman2018-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time exploring northern Iceland using Hanna's place in Ólafsfjörður as our base. The town is a small fishing village but has a good sized grocery store and a self-serve gas station and an outdoor swimming pool (open in the Summer). The landscape is amazing. The apartment is compact but is clean with lots of hot water and most everything you need, including Wi-Fi and an Apple TV.

    Nolan2018-06-11T00:00:00Z

  • We are a group of four skiers from Barcelona. We stayed 10 days at the appartment. Calm and clean appartment near the supermarket and the swimming pool. Hanna was very quick to respond to queries. The apartment is well equipped. The wifi 4 G, wasn't working perfectly. Appartment well located for ski touring.

The recreational possibilities are almost endless; it is possible to go sea angling or angling in the waters of Hólsá river - and we must not forget that it can also be fun just fishing from the end of the pier. Midnight sails and trips across the Arctic Circle can be arranged as well. It is possible to organise special activities for those who so wish, such as combining a walking and a sailing trip by e.g. walking out along Héðinsfjörður fiord then returning home by sea. For golf enthusiasts there is a 9 hole golf course at Siglufjörður, and for swimmers, a good swimming pool. The Síldarminjasafnið herring museum is the largest marine and industrial museum in Europe. It is housed in three widely differing premises where the visitor can become acquainted with the pursuit of the "silver darlings" and the processing of that valuable commodity. Síldarminjasafnið received the European Museums Award, the Michletti Award, in 2004. The Folk Music Center is also to be found in Siglufjörður.
  • The house is clean and stylish. Host Margrét is really hospitable that will show you around the rooms and share information of the town when arrival. The space have most of things that guests need. Very recommend to stay there for trip.

  • Margret was an amazing host and the sweetest you can find. She greeted us and made us feel welcome to her wonderful place. This place is a gem, very clean, lots of thoughtful touches and has everything you need to make you feel at home. The patio is very spacious and nice. Thankful that we could do our laundry. This place is great. Margaret also gives out information on things to do in Siglufjordur. If we ever visit Iceland again I would definitely stay here again.

There was a selection of cereals, teas and coffee in the kitchen for guest to use. There area offers outdoor activities as well as sightseeing tours.

  • One of our favorite stays in all of Iceland. Wonderful hosts, comfortable furnishings, and generous room to spread out compared to many of the other places we stayed. We slept so well here and wished we’d had more time to explore the beautiful town and surroundings!

When the issue could not be resolved during our stay, Anna found a solution and treated us very fairly. Anna was professional and treated us very well. A great host and beautiful space!

    Siglufjörður, Iceland

    Romantic, cosy cottage in north of Iceland. There are endless possibilities for hiking, walking and day trips in the summer and skiing adventures in the vintertime. The place is perfect for couples with couple of big kids or friends. One bedroom and sleeping arrangement on the loft, where the kids love to spend time or where two people can sleep. Walk to a fantastik swimmingpool and enjoy the true Icelandic small town culture in Fjallabyggð.
  • Inga and her sister Agnes were very quick to respond to our questions. Check in process was very easy, and the place was right off the main road /highway but still tucked away neatly in a quiet fishing town. Inga's place was very well stocked and clean. If you're doing the ring road and want a different option to akureyri to stay in the north, I would highly recommend Inga's place.

    Saminas2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy and well-equipped house, warm and located in a very quiet place! Excellent for a couple!

    Ezio2019-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • Inga's place is perfect. We LOVED staying at it and were very sad to leave. The cottage is so cozy, yet it isn't too small. We loved the fact that one of us could stay up late in the living room, and the other could go to bed early in the bedroom. The bathroom was big enough that one person could be showering and the other could be getting ready by the sink. The mud room was also very nice for taking off wet coats and dirty boots without getting the rest of the cottage dirty. Very quiet neighborhood, we rarely heard a peep from anyone. We also appreciated all the cooking amenities! Some places we have stayed at in the past have only had a few pots/pans. Inga's place had everything you could think of and more, plus multiple ways to make coffee! We did french press one day, then pour over another! If we ever travel back to Iceland, Inga's place will be our first stop!

    Crystal2018-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy is certainly the right word for this home. After a long drive from the airport, arriving at the cottage was such a relief. The perfect space to come back to at the end of a busy day exploring the beautiful countryside surrounding it.

    Ellie2018-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • We felt at home with Inga from the first moment. The accommodation is lovingly and tastefully furnished and very well equipped. The small fishing village is ideal for enjoying nature and an excellent starting point for numerous excursions. And there is also a big swimming pool.

    Harald2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is truely a cosy house. There is everything you need. We felt right at home. We did get good instructions and the house was very clean.

    Mark2018-06-18T00:00:00Z

    Dalvík, Iceland

    This charming fisherman's home has been in our family for quite some time. We have been renovating the house throughout the years and even though it is still not fully restored it has become our home away from home. We are very proud of our family home and we look forward to welcoming you to our home.
    This two storey house has a lovely view overlooking beautiful Siglufjordur. The house was built in 1934 and the renovation plans have been to keep up with the original style and design. The first floor has been completely renovated and has the charming style of the original house. The second floor is still under renovation. The bedrooms are still being renovated; full disclosure, the beds are old and not in perfect shape. But the house has been used as our holiday home for our family and it is very cosy and a great option for families and small groups of friends.
    The house located relatively high on the hillside and therefore, it has a great view over Siglufjörður. A short walk to the local swimming pool, city center and the nearest grocery store. Everything you need in a walking distance.
  • Charming old house well located in wonderful Siglufjordur. The house is well maintained, clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!

    Astmundur2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, cosy, and comfortable house, suitable for both a small or large number of people. My volleyball team has stayed here before and we would be happy to stay again should we be playing in Siglufjörður.

    Margaret2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful week in this house. Siglufjörđur is a charming city.

    Sylvie2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • Helga's beautifully renovated fisherman's house has always thrilled us. In a beautiful fjord surrounded by impressive mountains, we really enjoyed our stay. Siglufjördur is the ideal starting point to explore the area around Tröllaskagi in the north of Iceland. We can absolutely recommend a stay of several days in Helga's house!

    Michael2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time staying here! Everything was very nice and made us feel at home. The home itself is very charming and the view was beautiful!

    Elizabeth2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice house with a refined decoration

    Emmanuelle2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in this lovely house. Great style.

    Judith2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed the spacious house, comfy kitchen and spectacular views from almost all windows! If you don‘t expect a perfectly styled modern environment but would like to breathe some history in every room, you‘re absolutely right here! For a rainy day you can always go for a swim at the indoor local pool which is only 5-7 mins walking distance just like almost everything else in Siglufjördur is easily accessible from there. And you can start to hike right from the house up the local mountainside!

    Siglufjörður, Iceland

    A house in Svarfadardalur valley, active farming area. From our beautiful and warm flat we have the pyramid like mountains to the south often named “The Icelandic Alps”, In bright weather to north you can even see Grímsey island at the polar circle.
    This is our second home in rural Iceland in Svarfadardalur valley, 5km from Dalvík. In Dalvík are grocery store, pub, restaurants and swimming pool. There are many other recreation possibilities in our neighbourhood like horse riding, whale watching, sea angling, golf, hiking and skiing. Only a few hundred meters from our house is a nature reserve and a river with rich bird life to watch. Short distance to Akureyri, “the capital of North Iceland”, Mývatn, Húsavík, Siglufjörður, Skagafjördur. The accommodation is one of two flats on the upper floor of this 40 year old house with the name of Laugasteinn in middle of Svarfaðardalur, often named the most beautiful valley in Iceland. There is a beautiful view in all directions which is one of the attractions of the apartment. There are two bedrooms, kitchen, toilet (that is shared with the smaller flat, which our co host Ösp, lives in) big living room and big balcony. Below the balcony is the sheep house with 25 sheep which belongs to “the hobby farmer” on the lower floor. The sheep decorate the view from the west window and the balcony. The ferry Sæfari, which sails from Dalvík, serves the island of Grímsey, Iceland's northernmost community, which lies on the Arctic Circle. Dalvík is well known for alpine skiing and there and in neighbourhood are some of the best known ski areas in Iceland.
  • Great landscape (whales can be seen in the fjord on land, do not forget binoculars) and quiet (in the lap of the mountains). Lovely decorated. Shower unfortunately not really available (open bathtub).

    Malte2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect in this beautiful, clean airbnb. We had a great time.

    Wesley2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • From one window you can see white sheep giving birth to lambs, from the other window you see snowy mountains (May) looking like pyramids, so you can feel as if you were in the Valley of the Kings. There is even a poster of Käthe Kollwitz, despite only in the bathroom, one can also enjoy thousands of Icelandic books. Picturesque and remarkable place to stay we can only recommend.

    Martin2019-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful home in a beautiful valley, very close to Dalvik. Quiet and peaceful, perfect for a cozy night in!

    Tegan2019-05-06T00:00:00Z

    Stefanie2019-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is quite possibly one of the best places I’ve ever stayed. The design of the house is amazing. The attention to detail is very pleasing. The beds are super comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. Be mindful there is not standing shower which can be a little tough for fairly tall people like me and my friends. Öps was very lovely and helpful. The communication was excellent. I really loved the place. Recommend it 100%. P.S. take a look at the backyard when you are there.

    IS, Iceland

    A house with a soul, nearby the center of Siglufjörður. With beautiful view of the the harbour plus stunning vista of mountains encircling the town. Good made up beds. A fully equipped kitchen, washing machine and unlimited free high speed WiFi. Siglufjörður welcomes you, a beautiful bustling town that was built up around the herring industry but now overflowing with cultural must sees and a verifiable paradise for outdoor recreation. The official licience no. is HG-3769
    The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood near the church and center of town.
  • Very nice house near the sea, in a calm and lovely village.

    Patrick2019-10-02T00:00:00Z

    Siglufjörður, Iceland

    Our newly renovated house stands in the centre of Dalvík. There are great views of the harbour and the fjord Eyjafjörður just metres from the front door. To the back of the house are views of the spectacular mountains. The house is a perfect base from which to explore all that Dalvík and the surrounding area has to offer. All the main attractions such as the whale watching tours, museum, music hall/cultural house, restaurants/bars/cafes are all within easy walking distance from the house.
    The house has two bedrooms, both of which offer two single beds that can be put together to make doubles. The kitchen and living area is largely open plan, but the TV room can be closed off using a sliding door that´s concealed inside one of the walls. The TV room then becomes another bedroom and the U shaped sofa can be made in to large bed with plenty of space for two adults. Above the TV room there is a sleeping loft. This is a very cosy area and has a large window with views to the mountains. At least two can sleep in the loft but please note the low ceiling. The kitchen is fully equipped with built-in dishwasher, built-in fridge freezer, an oven and a combination oven/microwave. The main bathroom is a walk in wet room with a great shower. There´s a second WC which is also the laundry room and has a washing machine and a tumble dryer. The TV room has a 55 inch TV. There´s also free high speed wi-fi. Outside the house has two private off road parking spaces.
    Dalvík is a beautiful true fishing village located in the "Eyjafjörður" fjord in the north of Iceland. The town´s harbour is a fishing and commercial port and is also the departure point for the ferry "Sæfari", which goes to the island of Grímsey. A few minutes away is another fishing village called Árskógasandur, where the ferry "Sævar" goes to a small island just outside Dalvík called Hrísey. It also has the Kaldi beer baths, a must try for the beer connoisseur. We recommend visiting the islands as day trips. All within short walking distance, Dalvík has a lot to offer. There are popular whale watching tours, interesting museums such as Byggðasafnið showing how the area got built up and there are a few cafes, bars and restaurants. Dalvík's music hall/cultural house is a two minute walk from the house and often hosts concerts/live music and art exhibitions. The lunch buffet there on weekdays is worth a visit too. Dalvík has a modern sports centre with indoor facilities and an outdoor swimming pool, water slides, sauna and hot tubs. A great way to mingle with the locals or just relax after the day´s adventures. One thing to mention are the northern lights which can be absolutely fantastic in the area. The best time to see them would be October to March when it is darkest in Iceland. Dalvík is also known for holding the annual "Fiskidagurinn mikli" The great fish day festival that attracts around thirty thousand visitors. It is held the Saturday after the first Monday in August each year where the local fishing industry sponsors a free all you can eat fish buffet by the harbour with lots of food stalls offering all kinds of fish dishes for everyone to try. Then the day finishes with a fantastic concert capped off with a really spectacular firework show. This is an absolute must if you are in the north of Iceland at this time.
  • Quiet house, really had everything you need, we were impressed by the house and didn't want to leave :)

    Michael2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very neat and good accommodation. 100% recommend this accommodation.

    Gísli2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • It was our second stay in the house and it was outstanding again. Our last visit was almost one and a half year ago and we expected everything to look more used and the like but everything was in absolut top condition. Even all the things in the kitchen. The house is a true beauty and it's so comfortable. We would book again anytime!

    Alexander2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • It is really modern and very clean apartment up to 8 people! Very central located - in front of harbor, between spirits store, if you'd choose to have some glass, and grocery store to fill up the fridge and make a meal on your own. It is cozy, comfortable and has lots of necessary amenities. Would honestly suggest to everyone who is about to visit Dalvik and Iceland North regions! Worth yo stay!

    Haralds2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Super suitable tips, good indications and elegant house, all new and clean. A super nice stay. The charming and authentic village of Iceland. The bar or pub at the entrance very cozy and with very nice owners! The arrival and abandonment of the very flexible schedule house. Thanks Magnus!

    Rakel2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first time using an airbnb out of the country and it has been my favorite experience thus far. It is very clean and perfect! There are two rooms and a loft that can be used to sleep in as well as a living room with a very comfortable couch. It was about a 5 hour drive from KEF airport and has many things close to it on the north side to see and do. Would recommend 100%

    Beatriz2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing, with excellent views of the fjord. Super clean and excellent communication. I would highly recommend Magnus and Justin. Thank you so much for sharing your place with us!

    Dalvík, Iceland

    This nice cottage is situated in the middle of a beautiful valley, with no neighbors disturbing you. You have a sea view to the north. A stream with waterfalls and rapids down through the valley. The hut is also a good base for skitouring and moutain hiking (many trails in the area) and horse riding. We offer horse riding for additonal fee. We can ride a calm tour with beginners or a bit faster with more experienced riders (details under blog Vermundarstadir).
    The cottage is built from a drawing from the 1000´s. It´s made of Norwegian pine and has cozy wooden smell and nails are only used on the roof. There is underfloor heating from the hot water spring which also serves for the hotter potter outside of the hut. Please note, that it is typically in Iceland to bath outside. In the hut is no indoor shower but you have a hot pot outside with constant water exchange (38°C). The water is a thousand years old directly from the inner of the earth!
    Besides the horse riding you can go whale watching, hiking, rent snowmobiles etc.. This area is a very calm and nice place.
  • Mikael’s cottage was a great way to spend time in nature and relax in Iceland. The cabin is rustic, but had a very nice Norwegian Viking design and everything was clean and pleasant. The outdoor bath is a fantastic to relax and take in the view. Mikael is a friendly and helpful host and it was nice to talk to him about the history of the cottage and the surrounding area. He was easily accessible by telephone during our stay if needed. We would have liked to have stayed longer and we would definitely stay again!

    Tanya2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Get (literally!) off the beaten path and find yourself in an authentic Icelandic experience, when staying in Mikael’s Nordic cottage in (indeed) a beautiful valley... We were there in October for 4 days, snow ánd cold sunny conditions. It was surprisingly comfortable. As to bathing outside, you get used to it. The water is warm and the views are amazing... And the cottage is an amazing piece of engineering that has its own story - Mikael can tell you all about it. Perfect stay! A 4x4 rental with sufficient clearance is recommended if you want to park the car next to the cottage.

    Natalie2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome stay! The Location, the View was incredible. We were welcomed and informed very well and the little Pool with the great View to the mountain and the ocean was the Most unforgetable thing we experienced so far! Recommend it to everyone! One little note for the people who are very sensitive with allergies. It can happen that your react to some allergies there, but it wasn't that big of a deal. The place was so overwhelming , the greatest place at Iceland so far.

    Johann2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very charming cottage, lots of things to do nearby and the hot tub is great! And mikael and magda are the best hosts. Highly recommended.

    Stijn2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Nature, peace and super nice people. All around the perfect place for a holiday. The hut that Mikael built is so impressive that we marveled at it for the whole stay. It really is a very special experience to be able to be in this place. The accommodation is very quiet but still within sight of the farm and other houses. The nature around it is just wonderful and gives you a very special feeling. The hut is also really well equipped. In the kitchen you will find everything you need. Especially the washing machine (including detergent) was a great thing for washing in between. Mikael has specially prepared a baby cot for our little daughter and even a high chair was available. The missing shower did not bother us in any case, as there was right next to the hut a container for swimming, which was always supplied with warm and fresh water. Mikael, Magda and Louisa are very nice people who made our stay special. The highlight was definitely the ride, which was so family designed that you certainly can not experience it anywhere else. Thank you for the nice time with you!

    Artim2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • We are glad that we found this cottage. It was fascinating that it was built based on viking sketches with big tree logs in a very natural style. The location in the valley is great and the hot pot fits good. Our boys and we enjoyed it very much. It is also a good starting point to explore the north of Iceland.

    Markus2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Charming log house with a small outside “bathtub” that was the major highlight of our kids’ days! Beautiful views when the weather permits

  • Staying at the cabin was a great experience for our family. The place has everything you would need and the surroundings are unbelieveable. Mikael and Magda were very responsive and ensured we had everything we needed. They took us on a horseback tour which was the highlight of our trip. The overall stay was great.

    Ólafsfjörður, Northeastern Region, Iceland

    Experience the past, intertwined with modern comforts, close by the seaside of the small fishing village Dalvík. Decorated with the owners embroidery and collective items mixed with original objects from the former resident of this comfortable little cottage. Guests who stay at this property get 10% discount of the Beer Spa in Árskógssandur (ask how!)
    Ideal as a base for 2-4 people, exploring the North East region of Iceland. The whole cottage is rented out as one unit. Two bedrooms, one with queen size bed and two single beds in the other. High speed WiFi is included. A washing machine and a dryer are available as well as outside clothesline in the yard. Some of the objects in my cottage are of great emotional worth for Björk, the owner and her family, so we hope you show my property respect and care during your stay.
    Dalvík is a great place to stay at while exploring the North of Iceland. Lake Mývatn, waterfalls Dettifoss and Goðafoss are within 2 hour driving distance. From here, you can take a trip to the island Grímsey, that the arctic circle crosses, discover the quiet bird paradise of the island Hrísey and all the charming fishing villages close by; Ólafsfjörður, Siglufjörður, Árskógssandur, Hauganes, Hjalteyri and more, that all have something interesting to offer! Weather you prefer activity like whale watching, hiking, horseback riding, skiing in the wintertime or relaxing in the hot tubs at the swimming pool, in the Beer spa (ask me for 10% discount!) or in the hot tubs on the beach of Hauganes, everybody should be able to find some things of interest. You can have a delicious fish soup for lunch at the café close by, dinner at one of the two restaurants in town or preparing a simple meal at home - just what you desire!

    Dalvík, Iceland

    Our cosy little red cabins are situated near our home at the south entrance of Dalvík village. Ideal for small families, bird watchers or who ever wants to relax away from big town noise. Close to Grímsey ferry port, whale watching and hiking routes!
    Our cabins are situated in a small village, a busy one but quiet. Fitting for 3 adults...or a couple with a child/youngster (or two young children...send us a request about if you fit in there!). A double bed and a sofa bed, kitchenette, two plate stove, most common tools for cooking, fridge. Small wc but no shower...free access to local swimming pool.
    We are hard working people who have grown up in a typical fishing village. We respect the things we live from. We love the nature beiing so close, valleys, mountains, the arctic sea...river and black sand beach! But we also love having our guests to enjoy some of the same things as us...let us help!
  • Only good things to to say about Bjarni and his red cabins! He greeted us as soon as we pulled into the driveway... he spent a nice amount of time making us feel welcome and showing us around his property. The hot tub and sauna were ready to go for us as well which was a lovely addition. We also really appreciated the tips he gave us for Dalvik -- the swimming pool! The entire space was also very clean and homey. It was such a great night... we only wish we could have stayed a few more nights. HIGHLY recommend staying here if you can.

  • Great place to stay in Dalvik. Close to everything you need and to See. The cabins are great, clean, super comfortable, supplied with everything you need. I loved staying there. Besides you can also use the Hot tub (Just great) and the sauna (greater in combination). The shower i did Not miss at All. Bjarni and Heida are warm and very welcoming people. If you have the Chance go to Heida' s Cafe and eat the fishsoup or a piece of cake there, it is great food. If i come again to iceland and to the north i will rent a cottage again :-).

  • Very warm and nice host. Would go back to him anytime. Everything was very clean and tidy, also that you do not have your own shower does not do anything, you can take a shower in the nearby pool but has a hot tub and a small sauna.

    Bääda2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Bjarni came to welcome us in his pretty little cafe, the cottage is very comfortable.

    Yves2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Bjarni was super nice & even provided us with some local tips for the rest of our journey. Sadly we only stayed for one night but the cottage was really clean plus had a 10/10 hot tube outside, perfect for watching the northern lights. One of the most helpful hosts I’ve met, would definitely recommend him! :)

    Ida2019-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Best place to stay like ever! Nothing else needs to be added. Stay with Bjarni.

    Sandra2018-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved the cabin. It was easy to find and check in was simple. Had everything we needed for our overnight stay. Quiet and peaceful. We couldn’t be happier.

    Arina2018-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • We reached Dalvik around 9:30 pm after a beautiful 5-hour drive from Reykjavik and went straight to the Gisli, Eirikur, Helgi cafe which also Bjarni owns. Their fish soup is the best but our tiredness from the long drive and misty weather outside made it a heavenly experience. Bjarni met us there a few minutes later and took us to the cottage after we finished our dinner. He has a geothermal hot tub right behind the cottage and we soaked in it for an hour at midnight under the moonlight. Next morning we woke up to the beautiful mountains around Dalvik. We walked to the football field right across from the cottage and watched some school kids practice soccer under the Icelandic mid-day sun. The entire stay was a magical experience and one of the highlights of our entire Iceland trip. I would love to visit Dalvik again and stay in Bjarni's cabin for a couple more days next time and definitely have some more of that fish soup the next time.

    Dalvik, Northeast, Iceland

    'Smiðjan' or the Smithy has been lovingly restored keeping original aesthetics, comfort and artistic impression as a focal point. The house offers many extras such as excellent blue tooth speakers, books and musical instruments for relaxation. This is a place where you can stay for a while. Smiðjan is almost a 100 year old house on the shores of the little fishing village Dalvík in the north of Iceland with views of spectacular mountains and valleys where hiking is at your doorstep.
    Smiðjan is not suitable for young children as the staircases are very steep and have not got adequate protection around the opening of them.
    There are several eateries in Dalvík including our next door favorite quirky pub/cafe Gisli, Eirikur, Helgi, kaffihus Bakkabraedra based on local folk legends where you can sample THE best seafood soup. Dalvik has all the conveniences of a large supermarket, laundromat, hardware shop, post office and a liquor shop.
  • My husband and two other couples had an amazing and comfortable stay at Dora's place. The shower was the best we've ever been in! It was like standing under a waterfall. The location was great for horseback riding, whale watching and walking to the local cafe and stores. We all highly recommend this place if you're staying in Dalvik!

    Kat2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend this home to ANYONE. It was very charming, clean, cozy and we loved the location. If you’re looking for a true small town Iceland experience, book this place. The soup restaurant a couple doors down was amazing.

    Melanie2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing three-level house on the quiet outskirts of Dalvik. Very well-appointed kitchen, so we could do plenty of cooking for ourselves. We heartily enjoyed our stay! (Also some board games and things for children, so a great place for groups with children.)

    Sean2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our visit was fantastic! This cute and surprisingly roomy house is located just 25 minutes from Akureyri, which was perfect for us. The house was warm, spotless and welcoming upon arrival. The host left notes and welcome chocolates (yum). The bathroom is AMAZING (talk about an enjoyable shower experience & tub soak). The beds were comfortable and the sheets were clean. We were within walking distance to the gas station, coffee/cafe shop, whale watching tour & pub. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly!

    Hanna2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was perfection! The hosts were lovely and thoughtful, the house was exactly as described and the town had everything we needed.

    Brian2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely home in North Iceland with great amenities and personal touches. The centrality proved to be ideal for trips to the fjords, Akureyri and points east, plus the stunning island of Hrisey. Highly recommended.

    Patricia2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Extremely beautiful house and cozy atmosphere. Convenient location and cleanliness up to 10. Highly recommend.

    María2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect home base for our family of four to explore North Iceland. The home was spotlessly clean and had everything you might need to make yourself comfortable. It was a great place to come home to after some full-day adventures.
