  • My family and I had a wonderful wonderful stay at Andrea's apartment. Everyone went gaga over how well-designed and well-appointed the apartment is when we first stepped in. The apartment was SPOTLESSLY clean, kitchen is well furnished, beds are super comfortable and everything worked perfectly fine. The size of the apartment was just perfect for a party of 6.

    Andreas helped us alot with our queries, especially with our concerns about driving in the north given the winter weather. He was super quick to respond, and on the morning we checked out, advised us of road conditions and made sure we arrived safely in Reykjavik.

    He and his wife Ulrica popped by to say hello during our stay, and to ensure everything's well with us - their visit, warm welcome and friendship was much appreciated - we had a good many laughs! They were the consummate hosts.

    We were very blessed to have discovered Andreas' apartment, and without hesitation, will highly recommend his place to anyone visiting Akureyri and the surrounding area.

    Thank you Andreas and Ulrica - and all the very best wishes for your new family!

    The Lee Family.

  • We stayed at Andreas' 3 bedroom apartment in Akureyri in June. We had a fabulous time here - I wouldn't think twice about coming back and would be comfortable here for any length of time. With a full kitchen it was so helpful since it's so expensive to eat in Iceland. We BBQd one night too which was so good. The location is perfect, there is a pool, playground and skate park/soccer field/bball court right there too. Just down the hill is a whole stretch of trendy shops and attractions. It's the perfect. spot. There are also church bells just close enough to be charming and just far enough to not bother or wake. It's very quiet at night ad the neighbours were all friendly. Akureyri is so cute and we were so glad we made the trip up there. We will be back and we will call Andreas!
