Stunningly beautiful, thoughtful and perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5
I just returned back from a trip to Iceland and had chosen to stay at this rental based on the pics and reviews. First--Thomas was immediately responsive and communicative on helping me book this trip. This was my first trip to Iceland so I was a little unfamiliar with location of the home but I can tell you, I'd stay there 100x over again. The photos really don't do this home and location justice--it is so remarkable, feels so rewarding and the area is quite powerful. Thomas has created a remarkable location to visit Iceland and I feel that Akureyri is so special--and worth the trip and a stay.
Now on the house: again...incredibly homey and tasteful. The beds were remarkably comfortable and the views were breathtaking. Also, there were sheep within viewing distance from the larger bedroom (something I was incredibly excited to see). The kitchen was tremendous for our meals every day (we ate in every a.m. and p.m.). It was winter there during this trip and the hot pot was spectacularly relaxing.
I can not say enough of how special this home is--it's the combination of how minimalism can be so comfortable in a remarkably beautiful setting. No detail is overlooked. I loved this home and my heart aches for another visit. Please do visit!

Perfect stay in every way.

  • 5 of 5
This home is the perfect combination of a beautiful home with a spectacular view. The house and the views are even better than the pictures. We wish we could have spent our entire vacation right here. We have rented many vacation homes and this one tops the list.

Excellent in all areas - A faultless place to stay

  • 5 of 5
Myself and three friends recently stayed in this property, and cannot fault both the accommodation, service and experience we had.

The property itself is a very good size, and the finish is of an incredibly high standard inside and out. Floor to ceiling windows in every room provide an amazing view over the fjord, and the open plan kitchen/living area and bedrooms are large and comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen are finished to a very high standard, with top spec appliances and fittings throughout. This gives a very luxurious finish that befits the natural surroundings. Underfloor heating throughout the property makes it a very comfortable and cosy. The house was also perfectly clean and well presented.

The service we received was very friendly as well. The 6 hour check in window allowed us to drive up from the south and enjoy the trip without having to worry about any strict check in times. We called to let Anna know we'd be at the house in 30 mins and she was there ready to greet us at the door when we arrived. Any questions we had were answered straight away and in a friendly manner.

Finally the location of this property is unbelievable, and the house has clearly been designed to take full advantage of this. Perched on a small hill close to the waters edge, the house provides stunning views for miles around over the water and mountains. The house is also very easy to find, just a short drive from the town of Akureyri. Good road links mean it's easy to get to all the major tourist attractions nearby.

I really couldn't recommend this place enough to anybody looking for a place to stay in the north of Iceland, you wouldn't be disappointed.

Nordlichtbeobachtung im Designerhaus am Fjord

  • 5 of 5
Das Haus hatte ein noch viel gemütlicheres Ambiente als es die Fotos zu zeigen vermögen. Unkompliziert konnten wir die warme Stube beziehen und uns so richtig zu Hause fühlen. Trotz des Bewegungsmelders, der immer wieder das Licht einschaltet konnten wir bereits am zweiten Abend ein Nordlicht entdecken und damit war die erhoffte Hauptattraktion unseres Winterurlaubs bereits erfüllt. Kaffee und Hotpot sind wie alles andere spitze, hier lässt es sich wirklich gemütlich verweilen. Gerne bald einmal wieder!

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank! Ich suche noch den "Nordlichtsensor", der das Licht abschaltet und die Gäste bei Bedarf weckt ?. Bis bald!

Die Perle des Eyjafjörður

  • 5 of 5
Wir trotzten dem Wetter. Sind nach einer sehr winterlichen Anreise direkt von Reykjavík mitten in der Nacht (1 Uhr) vom Vermieter Thomas persönlich empfangen worden. Sofort hat sich bei uns ein Wohlfühlgefühl beim Eintritt in unser temporäres Heim für die nächsten 10 Tage eingestellt.

Der moderne Baustil und die Einrichtung haben uns sehr angesprochen. Selbst die Füße würden dank Bodenheizung verwöhnt. Es war immer wieder eine Wonne nach den teilweise arktischen Wetterverhältnissen von einem Tagesauflug zurück zu kommen. Thomas ist ein sehr sympathischer und äußerst hilfsbereiter Mensch. Seine Liebe zu Island hat er uns in vielen persönlichen Empfehlungen weiter vermittelt.

Somit eine perfekte Wohlfühlumgebung inkl. Beratung vor Ort. Wer gerne kocht, darf sich noch an einem modernen Induktionskochfeld vergnügen. Auf der kulinarischen Seite gab es dann noch Kaffee im Überfluss. Wer es noch ein wenig wärmer mag, der kann sich im Hotpool vergnügen. Via Internet kann selbst der heimische Radiosender empfangen werden. Summa summarum, ein feiner Luxus.

Wir danken Dir Thomas, dass Du mit Deiner Person und diesem Ort, Island bereichert hast.

Perfektes Urlaubsparadies

  • 5 of 5
Was sollen wir noch schreiben, was nicht schon geschrieben wurde.

Es war unser 2. Island Trip und wir hatten das Glück im Haus Kaldbakur unsere Ferien verbringen zu dürfen. Das Haus und der Service sind einzigartig, es wurde an alles gedacht. Baulich perfekt in die Landschaft integriert, alles aus hochwertigen Materialien gebaut und ausgestattet, einfach sensationell. Anna-Katharina hat sich hervorragend um alles gekümmert und stand uns immer mit Rat und Tat zur Seite.

Durch die zentrale Lage im Norden, kann man sämtliche Naturschönheiten das Nordens auf Tagestouren sehen und am Abend im Hot Pot mit Blick auf den Fjord die Seele baumeln lassen. Auch die Fahrt nach Askja und ein Teil der Spengisandur-Route waren mit einem 4x4 ohne weiteres machbar.

Schon in der ersten Nacht wurden wir von Nordlichtern empfangen, die wir vom warmen superguten Bett aus geniessen konnten. Auch Wale sind vom Haus aus mit dem Fernglas zu beobachten, am einfachsten zu finden, durch das kreisende Walbeobachtungs-Tourboot von Akureyri.

Zum Abschluss kann man nur sagen; es war ein traumhafter 13-tägiger Aufenthalt und wir können Thomas nur für diese, mit viel Herzblut geschaffene Refugium danken und eine Wiederholung steht ausser Frage.

Anina & Patrick

PS nur eine kleine Anmerkung 1 oder 2 kleinere Kochtöpfe für Beilagen wären nicht schlecht, denn für zwei Leute fühlte sich der Reis etwas verlassen in dem grossen Topf ;-)))

Owner's Response: Ganz lieben Dank von uns. Wir hätten keinen besseren Werbetext für das Haus schreiben können. Auch unser alter Landrover kam wieder mal zur Askja, er hat das sicher genossen. Hansruedi, der Schreiner dieses Bett-Kunstwerks ist glücklich über solche Feedbacks und wenn Ihr das nächste Mal kommt, nehmt Ihr entweder vier Freunde mit oder wir stellen noch zwei kleine Pfannen ins Haus. Bis zum nächsten Mal also....
