Amazing dream location

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe a town like this even exists. It's a quiet seaside town that glows in the midnight sun. The home is very neat and clean and has all the basics one needs. There is even a little grocery store and restaurant right at the entrance of the town. Great instructions and amazing stay. I love Grenivík!

This a beautiful cottage (a duplex really) in a small beautiful village. It was appointed beautifully, comfortable beds, lots of kitchen equipment, full living space, great shower in the bathroom. Close drive to both Akureyri and Husavik.

Beautiful home and village

  • 5 of 5

My only complaint is that our stay was not nearly long enough. This house is beautiful and more than enough room for myself, my husband and our two children. Sigga was helpful and very friendly even with our small language barrier. Thank you for letting us stay. We would definitely stay again and recommend to all of our friends.

Really nice place.

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to stay in a small village away from the main tourist locations and Grenivik is a gem. While it is a quiet location, it has all the amenities you need to enjoy your stay, and it offers easy access to Akureyri and all the attractions the North has to offer. Ragnheidur's home is really nice. There were four of us (two couples) and we stayed in three different locations during our vacation to Iceland. We all agree that Ragnheidur's home was our favorite rental, and Grenivik was our favorite place we visited in Iceland. Everyone in the town was so nice including the market owner and restaurant owner and staff.

The town pool was wonderful with a great view of the fjord. We were even able to see the whale's spray as they breathed in the distance. We booked a ride through the local ranch (Polar Hestar) and it was a wonderful experience. We even got to watch the local Grenivik football team win their game; go Magni!

The area is just plain beautiful! The town was just plain great. Ragnheidur was really helpful in providing information on all the amenities and attractions in the area. She was a pleasure to deal with. I really hope I get the opportunity to come back.

Gorgeous and unique location

  • 4 of 5

If you want to get away from being a tourist in Iceland, this is a wonderful rental. We spent a week here. Grenivik is an entirely self-contained community of about 200 people in a gorgeous location. It has everything you need - gas, bank services, well stocked grocery store, postal services, a tiny bar and restaurant, a heated community pool (or course), a medical centre, and the world's most beautifully located, and free, car wash. It is less than 30 minutes to the cruise ships in Akureyri but it is a world away. We took advantage of the hiking, riding and two very interesting local museums - Laufas and the Icelandic Outsider and Folk Art Museum and we used this as a base to explore the north.

The house itself is spotlessly clean and well equipped. Ragnheidur, our landlady, was always prompt and professional in her dealings with us.

The only problem with this rental for two older friends travelling together is that one bedroom is spacious with a very comfortable bed and the other bedroom is cramped and the two tiny beds are not comfortable for an adult. Also, the smaller bedroom does not have good curtains which was difficult in sunny late June.

Great property and nice quiet town!

Grenivik is a beautiful small town and the property was perfect for the four of us. Was updated very nicely and great views from the patio.
