“Do Yourself a Favor and Stay Here!”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I cannot recommend this cottage enough! It is absolutely gorgeous, and very tastefully furnished. The cottage is slightly out of Akureyri city limits, with a fantastic view of the city and beyond, but is just a 5-minute drive to the city center. We had a few questions after we arrived, and Benedikt responded immediately to our inquiries. We traveled with our baby, and he provided a crib for her. Nice hot tub out in the back as well.

Thanks for everything, Benedikt!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed April 9, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We've spent one wonderful week in this dreamy and peaceful place!
Very good rental, cozy, well maintained and clean.
The owner was very available and pleasant.
The extra talent: the hot tub!

We will come back, for sure!

This is a cracking place to stay. Three of us rented this apartment and had a fabulous time relying here during our road trip round Iceland. The owner was kind and friendly and made us feel very welcome. The property is stylish, clean and comfortable. It has great views across the fjord and I will certainly stop here again if I'm back in this area. Well worth stopping here if you're in the area. Thanks for a great time....... PS the hot tub is perhaps a little unconventional but works really well.....

“Absolutely loved the "Viking Cottage"!”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

This cottage is the perfect place for a couple to stay while enjoying Akureyri and the surrounding area. Close to the city but quiet with a beautiful view over the fjord to Akureyri. Nicely decorated with everything you would need plus a hot tub! The owner met us and we followed him to the house. He explained everything with well-founded pride in his cottage. There's so much to see and do around Akureyri. Whale watching, waterfalls, Lake Myvatn, museums in Akureyri. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend the Viking Cottage!

Liked best: Location/house design.
Liked least: No oven - there was a stove and a grill and we got along just fine, It really wasn't a problem.
