The apartment is not only beautiful - it is a dream!!! It happens sometimes that pictures look better than realitiy. Here they show exactly the truth! Absolut perfect, large enough even for bigger groups, although there might be a congestion at the loo :-). We felt immediately at home there after the nice contacts with Gestur via mail and SMS and Huldas warm welcome. The central position is great, so easy just to go for a walk through the nice town of Akureyri or to the swimming pool. We did that while it was snowing heavily - really great to sit in a hot pot with snow on your head. We already decided that we will return next year again!.
I cannot express how incredibly helpful Gestur and Hulda were for our trip to Iceland.
Gestur gave us road conditions for the rest of our trip, even made sure we had the right tires on the rental car. Turns we did not. Gestur got us the contact information for Thrify car rental and we were able to get the proper tires installed.
Hulda and her lovely daughter met us at the apartment and made sure everything was right. They even had breakfast for us in the refrigerator and chocolate on the pillows.
The apartment was outfitted very well with a high quality plasma TV and and Apple TV they we used to display photos we had taken during the day.
I highly highly recommend this apartment and Gestur. I hope to return in the summer and will try my best to rent from him again.
Thank you very much!

Gestur is an amazing host. Everything was perfect, very clean and confortable, the house is very big (we were in 7 and had plenty of space). Gestur left a lot of food for us, as well as soap so we could wash our clothes. We felt like we could live in that house for ages, unfortunatelly we only had 2 nights, but was enough to fall in love with it.
Gestur was not there to meet us, but a lady named Helen went in his place and was also very nice and helpful, ready to assist with anything we needed. She helped us with directions when we were lost and was there to meet us even though we arrived late. Thank you for that, Helen!
If you are going to Akureyri, I definetly recommend you stay in Gestur's house for a great experience!
the appartment is very nice and comfortable. It's located in the very centre of Akureyri with a private park for the car.
This rental is highly recommended.
Although a misunderstanding with the temporary custodian of the apartment caused some problems getting entry, this was finally cleared up and a nice apology and gift was sent by the owner, Gestur. We had many and frequent alerts from Gestur and AirBNB concerning in advance of our rental and thus we were well informed about the rental. The apartment was wonderful: clean, modern, welcome food items in the fridge, and well furnished. We were 5 adults and had plenty of space. The bathroom was huge with bath and separate shower and toilet. Very modern TV and AV equipment were appreciated. Our only recommendations would be a separate toilet (or even better a 2nd bathroom) and a dishwasher. Those would make the apartment near perfect.
Located in the very centre of Akureyri, it is perfect for visiting the town. It is also convenient for going to Husavik and Lake Myvatn. The owner, Gestur, was always helpful, friendly and informative. This rental is highly recommended.
Amazing place---one of the nicest airbnb stays. The apartment has great modern decor, and is right in the heart of the city. The beds were incredible. And the apartment was even stocked with spices for cooking and some goods for breakfast!
This is a really beautiful and centrally located apartment, perfect for a family or group of friends. The decor and facilities are fantastic and very easy to enjoy and appreciate like the cable channels, coffee maker, blackout curtains (especially in the summer!), welcome pack, spacious bathroom, etc. We were so excited when we checked in and we were so happy we selected this flat in Akureyri. Gestur is a wonderful host. Alsways available and his communication is very relevant and tailored to what you need, Very professional but friendly and accommodating at the same time. Thumbs up from all of us for this apartment. How we wish we stayed longer!
During our Iceland roundtrip we have stayed at many private houses rented via AirBnB and can definitely say that Gestur's apartment plays in its own league. The beautifully designed home is located in the very center of Akureyri and is packed with all possible amenities and Gestur provided many courtesies such as a filled fridge, fresh flowers on the living room table and small pieces of chocolate on the pillows as well. We really loved staying at Gestur's apratment and highly recommed it to all other travellers coming to Akureyri.
I wish I could have met Gestur -- he seems like a cool, friendly guy that knows everyone! Nevertheless, our stay at his place in Akureyri was one of the best Airbnb experiences I've had so far. The flat was immaculate, exceptionally designed, well-prepared, in the best possible location (literally on the square), and the host was extremely responsive. From the chocolates on the pillows to the fresh breakfast (Skyr, local bread, cheese, OJ/Milk) to the comfortable rooms, I hope to stay here again some day.
Recomendamos sin duda este apartamento. Su situación es inmejorable y aunque la zona es de aparcamiento limitado y de pago, el apartamento dispone de aparcamiento privado en un patio cercano, donde nos cabían dos 4x4. Muy amplio, moderno y luminoso. Estupenda Wifi y sofisticado equipo de TV y sonido.
Muy buenos detalles al recibirnos: leche, zumo, queso, mantequilla, fruta, flores naturales, y seguro que olvido cosas.
Sólo dos pequeñas objeciones: no hay ascensor (pero un tercer piso en Islandia es un segundo realmente) y sólo hay un baño (grande, eso sí).
La atención personal, por correo y allí, muy amable.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
