The apartment offered incredible views of the city and surroundings and was in a great location. Mirra was very responsive to emails with any questions we had and she stocked the fridge with beverages you could purchase at a very reasonable price. We very much enjoyed our time right outside of Akureyri!
We had an exzellent time at this great place. Accomodation has been designed and decorated with perfect knowlage and a special architectural taste. We would love to come back and enjoy this great panorama once again! Thanx!
Inga Mirra's house is just great. We wish we had an view like that at home! The place is designed and decorated with taste; it is very bright and clean. We were there for one night. We slept very well on the bunkbeds and our friends loved the bed upstairs. The kitchen is well equiped. Communication with Inga Mirra was easy and fast. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
