“Stunning”
Reviewed June 25, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Very easy to find with parking outside. The most stunning cottage with amazing view. Very modern inside with a double bedroom downstairs and a further one upstairs. Very comfortable beds and great black out blinds. We used the hot tub and all the kitchen facilities. Many birds visited us in the mornings on the decking. A short drive to the Supermarket. Ideal location for exploring the North of the Island. We were here for 3 nights as 2 couples. The bathroom did flood but this was fixed within a few hours. The only things missing were drawers or a cupboard to put clothes in the upstairs bedroom. Also more mirrors as there is only one in the bathroom. Highly recommend and we did not want to leave

“Clean, cozy and charming”
Reviewed April 20, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

My husband and I stayed a week at the beginning of this month, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The cabin was clean and cozy, perfect for just the two of us! While compact, the space is open, with doors and windows allowing in the light, giving the feel of a larger space. The kitchen does not include an oven (I like to bake), and kitchen tools were the minimum, but they were good quality and enough to allow us to eat morning & evening meals in.
The cabin's location offers gorgeous views of nature, as well as the town of Akureyri, across the fjord. The short drive to town gives access to restaurants & cafes, as well as grocery and liquor stores.
During the day, we visited sites like Godafoss and Dettifoss. At night, we sat in the hot tub and watched the beautiful Northern Lights.
It was pretty much the perfect vacation spot. Benedikt has done a great job in providing a beautiful and relaxing place to unwind and enjoy the natural surroundings. We definitely hope to return in the future!

“Great place ”
Reviewed March 18, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed 2 nights in this place hoping to see Aurora Borealis.
And even we finally didn't see it - was quite cloudy - were extremely happy to stay there.
Everything in this house is well-thought to make your stay comfortable. Really well-organized and cosy. And really clean.
Just to mention, that the views are amazing.
Highly recommended.

“Perfect place for a stay in Iceland.”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We absolutely loved this cabin, and cannot recommend it highly enough. This was a surprise holiday in order to propose so having a great place to come back to was a must, it was fantastic, and this cute cabin was perfect for our needs.
Benedikt made it very easy to find, the location was superb with a great view of and easy access to Akureyri. It was also very cosy and clean (there were even Christmas decorations up and on for our arrival). All ameteties there and modern, plus instructions. It was just a perfect place to stay. It felt very personal including shampoo etc and some beer in the fridge.... Just remember to pay the whale!!

The only disappointment was that we had to leave and come home!

“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!

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.....
