Please treat my cottage with respect and wash the dishes before departure.
We stayed there for two nights with my brother while ski touring the area, the place was a perfect base for our daily trips and the hot tub was just an amazing place to come back to in the evenings with its stunning view over the fjord! The cabin is nice and cozy, the bedroom can comfortably accommodate three single people or a family with up to three kids once you start sharing the two double beds. The kitchen was equipped with everything one might need, there is a comfortable couch area to plan the next day and the shower has an unlimited hot water supply.
Birna was extremely nice, accepting our request at short notice and always answering fast!
Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit der Unterkunft. Das Cottage ist sehr schön gelegen mit einem wundervollen Blick auf's Wasser und die dahinter liegenden Berge. Mit der Wegbeschreibung von Birna war es auch leicht zu finden. Bei unserer Ankunft hatte Birna den hot tub schon vorgeheizt, so dass wir gleich den schönen Ausblick von der Terrasse im warmen Wasser genießen konnten. Das Cottage bietet Platz für 4 Personen. Es war alles sauber. In der Küche gab es alles, was man braucht, um sich selber zu verpflegen. Wir würden diese Unterkunft in jedem Fall wieder buchen und können Birna als Gastgeberin nur weiterempfehlen!
Great place! Beautiful views and Birna was very helpful in making sure we got in and got what we needed. Very easy to get to and find from Akureyri
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.
