Enjoy our comfortable cottage, hot tub and amazing view only 12 minutes drive from Akureyri.
We offer short and extended stays in comfortable cottage, all year around. The cottage is located in a little village called Svalbarðseyri by Eyjafjörður with a beautiful view of the fjord.
The bedroom has one double bed and one bunk bed. Baby cots are available on request at no additional charge. We also provide made-up beds and towels.
The kitchen is equipped with all basics, fridge with a small freezer, stove, oven, toaster, etc.
Guest have access to outdoor hot tub and free internet.
In the garden is a playground for the children, sandbox, trampoline and a small house to play in.
Experience and enjoy all the things that the Northen part of Iceland has to offer. Mývatn, Dettifoss, Húsavík for whale watching, Goðafoss, Ásbyrgi, etc. are all worth visiting.
This is a family friendly environment so we expect quiet time after midnight.
Pets are not allowed and no smoking in the cottage.
Fantastic little cottage in a beautiful location. Although there is only one bedroom, there is plenty of room for the four beds (2 singles pushed together to make a double, plus a set of bunks with the bottom bunk larger than the top). The kitchen/diner/living space was well arranged and like the bedroom opens on to a lovely and private outside decking area with chairs and a table. The shower room was good, and there is a useful entrance area for coats, shoes, etc. Of course the real triumph of this cottage is the outdoor hot tub with magnificent views of the fjord. The host (Birna) was there to meet us, and was quick to say that the hot tub was available - we just had to suggest a time so that the water could be heated for about 30 minutes before use. We enjoyed the tub every evening, simply emailing Birna to suggest a time each day which ensured the water was hot. Fantastic! The cottage is effectively at the bottom of the hosts garden, yet still felt private. We loved the location, in a small, quiet village across the fjord from Akureyri. If you want to eat out or use the supermarkets then Akureyri is only a 15 minute drive. We found it fantastically well located, just metres off route 1, and great for getting to Husevik (whale watching) and Myvatan (outdoor thermal baths, volcanic hot pools, pseudo-craters, etc), both of which were a little more than an hours drive away through spectacular mountain scenery. Birdwatchers would enjoy this cottage, with views of the wildfowl on two small lagoons below the cottage (whooper swans and eider ducks predominant), and with redwings and a merlin using the hot tub as a convenient perch! We will enthusiastically recommend this cottage to others.
Amazing place. We loved it there. The hot pot was my personal highlight. Birna is very nice. Defenetly recomandable!!!
As a family of four, we had a wonderfull time at the cottage. The hosts were friendly, the place tidy and the view, well, it's Akureyri Bay...
Birna gave us a "welcome hot pot" with a wonderful view.
The nice cottage is fully equipped (incl. Wifi). 5 Min. by car from Akureyri. Very silent place.
Det er et dejligt hus med rigelig plads til 2 personer. Udsigten er pragtfuld især fra hotpotten.
Birna er utrolig hjælpsom.
Huset er meget godt placeret, hvis man har lyst til at blive længere i området. Vi var der en uge og kunne uden problemer nå rundt omkring.
Hvis vi kommer på de kanter igen, så er huset absolut en mulighed
This cottage is perfect for a quiet stay with great views. The cottage has all the necessary facilities. It's also very convenient that check-out is a bit later than usual so you can leave relaxed.
The location of this cottage is amazing with its amazing views of the mountains and it's only 5 minute drive from the lovely town of Akureyri. We enjoyed using the hot tub with the amazing view. Birna is a friendly and helpful host. We highly recommend it and will probably be coming back some point in the future.
