Gunnar was a great host. Very responsive and nice. The house itself is marvelous. Great view on Akureyri, well equipped, perfect. And the hot tub...well it made heaven complete.
The house is on top of a hill, right in front of the town of Akureyri, it takes a 10mins drive to get there. We rented it in May and it was still cold and snowy, we found it hard to drive in the driveway because of the snow (we recommend NOT driving in the driveway and leave the car in the parking right off the road). We didn't meet Gunnar but found it easy to access the house, that was warm, filled with light, clean and beautiful. The house has everything you need plus a hot tub (that we didn't use).
The house has a lovely living room, with the floor-to-ceiling windows giving you a stunning view across the fjord to Akureyri and lots of light flooding in. We spent evenings in the hot tub, looking out to the snow capped mountains, and were lucky enough to catch the Northern Lights. (n.b. Icelandic hot tubs are different to ours - you empty them out each time, like a bath, so don't panic that it's empty when you arrive!) Gunnar was very responsive, and called to check we'd settled in ok, which was very much appreciated. The house is a little tricky to find on Google Maps, so make sure you print off the pic in the gallery where Gunnar's marked its location.
The house is great, very well located and easy. We found all we needed in the house to enjoy our stay and Gunnar was always available to answer our questions.
Akureyri and places around (Husavik, Myvatn, Detifoss...) were very interesting and easy to reach ( and the road is beautiful).
Thank you Gunnar !
Gunnar was very helpful and responsive. The house was gorgeous, with amazing views.
My friends and I had such a great time in Iceland and Gunnar's hospitality added to the experience. The house was just as we pictured it would be from looking at it online before booking it. With a great view and open concept space, the house was a perfect package for our Icelandic trip. Thanks Gunnar!
Beautiful apartment with a great view! It was magical waking up every morning to the sight over the bay. Very spacious. And our last night we saw the northern lights arch across the sky and over the bay. Street parking was easy, seems like a quiet neighborhood.
Gunnar was a fantastic host, he was very helpful,polite and contactable at all times. The house itself was clean and spacious and the views were spectacular. The main issues where that the hot tub was broken (previous occupants had burst a pipe) and the wet room was completely impractical. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay in his home and would definitely recommend it.
The property is in an amazing location, the views are stunning.
It was easy to find even in the snow and dark. The key holder was frozen closed, but with advice from Gunnar over the phone we managed to get in.
We had some issues with the heating being turned off by a previous guest, even though Gunnar wasn't in town he was very helpful sending people round to look into this issue. Sadly as it started to warm up it was time for us to leave, but even with this issue we really enjoyed our stay.
Our host Gunnar was always available via phone and email when we arrived. The apartment itself has an amazing ocean view, lots of natural light and a lot of open space. The neighborhood was very quiet with lots of parking available. Some of the furniture, however needs to be replaced as there were stains and a generally dirty appearance. The trash was also full when we arrived, old food had been left in the fridge and there was no toilet paper and hardly any hand soap. Our host did provide toilet paper per our request but the trash was never taken out. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and we enjoyed ourselves very much. I just wish the apartment had been cleaned more thoroughly and some of the furniture replaced or cleaned more deeply as well.
