We stayed for a few days only, but honestly felt like we didn't want to leave. The host (Tim) is a wonderful person, super attentive and always willing to help. You truly won't regret booking this place.

L'appartement est spacieux, décoré avec beaucoup de goût et très bien équipé. Il est situé à proximité immédiate du centre-ville, dans une rue très calme. Les propriétaires ont été discrets et très agréables. La cuisine nous a permis de préparer quelques repas. Il y plusieurs chaînes de télévision en francais (autres que TV5 monde et France 24), ce qui est très rare en Islande. Le canapé est confortable. La literie est très bonne. Akureyri est un bon point de départ pour explorer le nord du pays. Nous recommandons vivement !

                                                                          We decided to split our trip to Iceland up in 3 - and this was our second place after 3 nights in Reykjavík. Arrival arrangements went really well. We stopped in the local 'Bonus' supermarket and called to say we would be roughly 30 minutes away and a time was agreed. Upon arrival to the house - which was found very easily, we were very happy. The house is large, well designed and comfortably slept all 6 of us. The design and finish through the property is exceptional and all our children loved the hot tub whilst overlooking the sea and the Northern lights shining above. I would happily recommend this as a great location to stay as Akureyri as its not far and is also a great hub to use for the North/ North East with some exceptional places to visit nearby - Myvatan etc We would look forward to visiting this place again sometime soon as there is so much to see and do up this part of Iceland :) Many thanks
