About This Listing
A new, beautiful cabin with incredible view over Eyjafjörður and Akureyri. The cabin is situated aproximately a ten minutes drive from the town of Akureyri, the capital of the north of Iceland. Two bedrooms with double beds, both queen size, and a sleeping loft with another double bed, queen size as well. Additionally there is a sleeping sofa in the living room, so in all the cabin can accommodate up to eight people, although that might be a bit tight. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a great dining area and a beautiful living room with the sleeping sofa. Also, a very nice bathroom with shower. Outside you will find a big veranda with an outdoor jacuzzi (icelandic style !) and the most incredible view. Perfectly located for traveling around the north of beautiful Iceland. The cabin is also very close to Iceland's best skiing facilities in the winter, as Akureyri is Iceland's finest ski resort.
In Akureyri you can find all sorts of attractions like one of Iceland's finest swimming pools, art galleries, restaurants, cinemas, museums and so on.
The most popular tourist attractions on the northern side of Iceland like Lake Mývatn and Dettifoss are quite close by. Mývatn 1 hour and Dettifoss less than 2 hours by car.
Just take care of our cabin, as we're quite fond of it. Don't leave doors open, as there is always the danger of mice coming in, especially when it's cold outside.
The cabin was wonderful, it had the most amazing view from the hot tub! It was clean and well equipped, with a cozy open living, dining, kitchen area. Five of us stayed here comfortably. It was nice that the hosts provided two sets of towels so we could have one for the hot tub and another for showers. The hosts always responded very quickly. The cottage was about an hour drive from myvatn which was a nice day trip. Overall, a great experience!
One of the best places we stayed in our 2 weeks trip. Clean, quiet, spacious, fabulous view. We loved the full-equipped kitchen and jacuzzi specifically. Love it.
Stayed in grandma house for 3 nights on a 14 day trip. It was by far the best place we stayed in which says a lot because accommodation in iceland in general was very good.
We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children. We especially enjoyed the well equipped kitchen full utenciles including many spices to make the meals complete. The jacuzzi was superbe, hot and with horizon to horizon views of the fjord and mountains. The cabin was clean and spacious. Someone from ikea needs to photograph it as an example of how one can use their furniture to create a living space.
The cabin is secluded and quiet but only 10 minutes drive to town with shops.
I hope we could someday retun. In the mean time we will send friends and family over...
Great cabin, very clean, cosy and comfortable. Beautiful view over the fjord and Akureyri. Jacuzzi is very efficient at the end of the day to have some rest. Very good contact with Adolf & Systa who give good information (file via e mail) to guide us to their cabin. For sure an address to recommend.
