We were lucky enough to stay at Viking Cottages and Apartments for 3 nights recently. Absolutely loved it, it was perfect! Everything we needed, superbly finished with everything good quality. Hot tub fantastic and easy to use. Beautiful views over the water to Akureyri. Cosy cosy cosy! Only down side was having to leave!! We wish we owned apartment 15C! We will be booking again! Ideally you need a car for this property.
We had the cabin for one week ca end of November. One week before our arrivals, Iceland just had gone through a huge snow storm. The whole landscape was just amazing.
The cabin is on a hillside with a fantastic view over Akureyri, mountains and Fjord. It was easy to find; and the access to house was also exactly the same as described. The night view over Akureyri was very nice, same as seeing polar sun got up every morning. Everywhere is clean in house, WIFI was fast and kitchen was well equipped. We did not use washing machine nor hot tub. However, it’s always handy to know they are available.
The communication with the owner was very efficient. All questions will be answered immediately. We saw northern lights and took a couple of pictures. It was magical.
We can recommend the cabin anytime!
We have stayed in this cottage for 5 nights. We were 3 adults. The entire experience was outstanding. The cottage is very elegant and fully equipped in the highest possible level. It is two-floor cottage, one bedroom, bathroom and kitchen in the first floor and another beautiful room in the 2nd floor with a living room in the 2nd floor. There’s a heating under the floor which makes the apartment hot and cozy. There’s dish washer, oven, microwave, washing machine and a drier. There an outside jacuzzi and a garden with baroque. We loved every moment of our stay in this unbelievable beautiful cottage.
The Viking cottages are located across the harbour from Akureyri and have a great view of the city, the water and the surrounding mountains. Our cottage was clean, modern and very well equipped with a large bathroom, washer/dryer, sit down kitchen, television room and two comfortable bedrooms. There was a deck with a hot tub and gas barbecue. The kitchen had sufficient dishes, cutlery and cooking utensils for making meals. Akureyri is a short drive away for shopping. The television had access to multiple entertainment options and to top it off there was a B&O wireless speaker available. The area is very quiet at night so sleeping with the window open is very pleasant. This is an outstanding property and we would recommend it highly to visitors in the area.
One of the few cottages on the mountain. Stunning views over the mountain and the ocean (bay??). The cottage comes with a hot tub and a barbecue grill. After days of sandwiches, we finally got to eat properly with all the cooking facilities. The inside was very modern and clean. We loved it! Service was great too! Highly recommend.
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
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!
