About Audur Jonsdottir

We are the owners. Our names are Audur and Gylfi and we live upstairs, above the apartment Stella Rosa. Gylfi was born here and has lived in the house his whole life.

This is a farm with cows, sheep, chicken and horses. Our property is very big and beautiful with amazing sceenery. We have a little smokehouse where we smoke salmon,trout and lamb by an old Icelandic tradition. We catch trout in Lake Myvatn so we have a boat on the lake. We work a lot and are pretty busy most days so we won´t bother you much. We are there on the spot, of course and we greet you when you arrive and show you the apartment and if you have questions or need help from us, we help you gladly. But most of the time we´re out working and we don´t disturb our guests more than necessary.

Why Audur Jonsdottir chose Northeast Iceland

We love it here and we think we´re very lucky to have the opportunity to spend our life in a place like this. We want to share this little paradise to the world, so we decided to give other people a chance too.

Car is recommended. Then you´re free as a bird and can travel around and explore all the breathtaking places in the area and believe us, they are many.

We´re situated at the south side of lake Myvatn, close to road nr. 1 and easy to find. The area is easily accessible with the Akureyri airport, only an hours drive.

What makes this apartment unique

It´s beautiful and peaceful here. Very child-friendly. Lake Myvatn and surroundings is a unique nature pearl, world famous for stunning landscape and rich bird life. A paradise for photographers, nature-lovers and birdwatchers. Many species of ducks and other birds nest here on our property and the Great northern diver nests in the little islet in the pond in front of our house, only few hundred meters away.

Staying with us is an ideal base to explore our lava formations, pseudocraters, mountains, volcanoes, geothermal spots, and nature baths.

There are many walking trails in the neighborhood and further you find stunning waterfalls and black beaches. Whale watching 60 km away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in this wonderful flat by Lake Myvatn. It is well furnished and equipped. I can recommend it without hesitation. The owners have made it a warm and comfortable place to stay. There are fantastic views out of the windows and everything you need. What's more it is easy to walk to three different places to eat if you want to. You could easily spend a week or more here and find new places to visit and walks to do every day. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. They run the nearby smokehouse and produce products such as smoked arctic char and lamb. We tasted the Artic char and it was delicious.

We have had a fabulous time, thank you for your hospitality. We want to stay here for another week.We have done so much but have barely scratched the surface. Beautiful place-apartment. Iceland is a true hidden gem. I´m sure we´ll come back again.

Perfect Apartment in a perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our stay at Stella Rosa at Lake Myvatn and I cannot thank Audur and her family enough. We stayed there so that I could complete the 3rd part of my 3LC Moonwalk for Breast Cancer. The set up of the apartment was perfect (3 bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen, wifi, washers / dryers) I really could not have asked for more. It was perfectly located to be near the nature baths, steaming vents, psuedo craters and Husavik for the Whale watching (which was the icing on the cake). Yes you need a car to get there from Keflavik (around a 6 hour drive) but the sights on the way and when you get there are more than worth it.

The occasional visit from the family's dogs also kept the kids happy who were missing theirs. 'Takk' for rounding off the perfect Icelandic trip.
