The perfect scenic overlook in Akureyri

  • 5 of 5

Great, functional space with multiple bathrooms and plenty of space for our group of 6 adults and 2 babies. The high points are the enormous patio that overlooks the town of Akureyri and the fjord adjacent to it, as well as the hot tub. It was close enough to town to go in for a meal or coffee at any point, and Akureyri is the perfect home base to explore all of Northern Iceland. We did have a little trouble with filling the hot tub...just realize that it can sometimes take 4-5 hours to fill it up and you should be good to go. When we come back, we will definitely stay here!

Perfect villa near Akureyri

  • 5 of 5

All the facilities were absolutely top class and the view from the living room was magnificent. For me soaking in hot pools is one of the top priorities when on vacation in Iceland, and the hot tub fulfilled the guarantee of every day being a pool day. This was simply one of my greatest vacation accommodations ever. Great value for money, luxury at the price of an ordinary house!

Amazing place and location

  • 4 of 5

Two couples stayed for 4 nights and we found the place very comfortable. We were disappointed that the hot tub was broken for our last night. Also the guest bathroom needs to be fixed so the shower does not wet the bathroom floor, which can be very hazardous. The housekeeper reported that both problems were going to be fixed after we departed.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved both the house and the surroundings (the view from the house is amazing).

The house is spacious, modern, and comfortable; it really had everything (and more) for a good vacation. Even when the weather was bad, the kids enjoyed to play around in the house. The kitchen is excellent, it contains everything we needed. The same goes for the bathrooms, really luxurious. The beds were made up when we arrived and the house was warm and clean. The mattresses are also really good!

Things we never saw in a vacation house: there was a pc with internet and every room had his own speakers. The lights, the curtains and heating are controlled centrally.

The city of Akureyri (5 minutes) offers good shops, a good bakery and some good restaurants.

Excursion we did from the house: Whale watching in Dalvik, the myvatn area (geothermal activity), the big waterfalls in the north (Dettifoss, Sellfoss, Godafoss, ..).

About as good as it gets! Want to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We can start with “stunning” and work up from there. Leifsstadir is a holiday home you will remember for all the right reasons. Thomas has made a superb high-spec venue for getting away from it all while still enjoying all the trappings of a thoroughly modern – and conspicuously techie - experience. The house is immaculate, spacious, brilliantly positioned and a great deal of fun. Everything works, from the fully equipped and chic kitchen to the electric curtains and the magnificent sound system. The hot tub on the huge deck provides the perfect way to end the day, taking in the breath taking view up Eyjarfjordur. I am sure Thomas has patented the Akureyri sunset! Last year, we were treated to some spectacular sunsets at his place at Nollur, a few kilometres north of here, and this year brought us the same colour show in the sky. So, “stunning” is only the beginning. Well done and thank you Thomas.
