Just to care for the apartment like your own. No smoking allowed in the apartment. No pets allowed. Not for partying and people under 20 years old.
This apartment was even more beautiful in person! Gestur was very responsive leading up to my arrival and made key pick up very easy. The apartment had everything we needed to make it feel like a home away from home during our stay in Akureyri. It was very centrally located and had easy parking.
Beautiful and clean, with everything you need inside (apart from groceries). Perfect for small groups, even though we stayed as a couple and had two extra bedrooms. Loved that they had AppleTV -- we watched movies all night since it was raining out!
Very good location - central to all cafes,entertainment etc.
Well done up apartment. Bathroom especially spacious and nice.
Nice kitchen. Good to have a washer and dryer as we were travelling as 2 families with children and laundry tends to pile up.
Apartment on the second level so a bit of a challenge with luggage in the absence of a lift.
Would have been convenient if we could have been able to pick up the keys at the apartment rather than from the security agency which was a five minute drive away. Air bnb did not send us any advance message re key pick up.
Locating the garbage disposal bin behind the apartment block for garbage disposal took us a bit of time initially.
The apartment was a wonderful base for our stay. Exactly like the pictures and easy to travel to all the sites around the area. It's very centrally located which is great for dinner and shops. The front rooms were a bit noisy on Friday night, but this didn't worry us.
There was a mix up with arrival times, but Gestur was the perfect host and every thing was quickly and professionally fixed.
Beautiful, spacious apartment, centrally located. Very efficient collection process for keys. Gestur kept in touch throughout and we loved Akureyri. We will be back.
Beautiful apartment and amazing host! The location of Gestur's apartment - in the center of town in very short walking distance to everything - cannot be better. This was our second trip to Akureyri and Gestur's apartment was perfect for all of our needs. There is a plenty of room to spread out, 3 comfortable bedrooms with mulitlpe beds as described, and a gorgeous bathroom with large soaking tub. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again if we return (which we hope to do)! Gesture was extremely responsive and so accommodating when we decided to extend our stay by one night at the very last minute (the day we were leaving) in order to try for another chance to see the volcanic eruption. We could not be more pleased with our stay and with Gestur!
What an amazing place to stay! Gestur was very communicative from start to finish. We were arriving in late on the day after Christmas so we knew that shops would be shut, however Gestur arranged for keys to be collected at the airport and a welcome food parcel for our family to already be in the apartment - completely unexpected - everything that we'd need until shops were open again - this made a huge difference to our arrival and was hugely appreciated. The apartment is perfectly located and laid out beautifully - the finish and detail of everything in the apartment is of a very high standard. It's warmer than our house back in England, even though it was -4 C. while we were there! A very, very comfortable place for our family to relax and enjoy everything that Akureyri has to offer - we would gladly stay here again in the future.
