|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
The house was designed by a Swiss architect and completed in 2009. It has an elegant interior with natural materials such as wood, slate floors and glass. There is a pleasant indoor temperature in summer and winter. The house is heated with natural hot water. The large windows allow an unrestricted view to the fjord and the weather changes. In winter, Northern Lights can be observed without leaving the house.
A private hot tub is at the guests' disposal.
The bedroom with two large wardrobes and a double bed invites to romantic hours. The bathroom is in black stone and has a spacious shower. The kitchen has all comfort such as dishwasher, stove, microwave and fridge.
The large living room has a bunk bed and a sofa as well as a table with chairs. For your comfort, internet access is available with a screen, keyboard and mouse. Loudspeakers and HiFi equipment complete the list.
Modern build house but landscaped into natural surroundings. Beautiful views from the bedroom and sitting room. Clean and well maintained. Kitchen fully equipped. The property is easy to find, use the instructions in the pdf that the host sends you but the house is also on google maps.
The house was left open for us when we arrived and the cleaner was available to meet us however, we bumped into Thomas when we arrived and he showed us around. The hot tub on the front porch has a beautiful view and we were able to sit in it watching the Northern Lights.
There are lots of activities around the local area as well as relaxing at the house. Akureyri is about a 20min drive away which is a pretty town with supermarkets, restaurants. We had a great day out driving over to Myvatn - go and see the bubbling mud and steam vents as well as going to the thermal pools at Myvatn. I would stay here again as there are still lots more places to explore! I would also recommend this property to friends and family.
House Sulur was absolutely fantastic for my husband and I. We thoroughly enjoyed the "hot pot", especially on a freezing night. Everything was just as described and we couldn't ask for a lovelier stay and time in Northern Iceland. We highly recommend it.
We had a great stay, the house is gorgeous and the view is amazing. Everything was as described, both Thomas (the owner) and Anna-Baura (the caretaker) were helpful and polite. Could not have asked for a better home base for our Iceland adventure!
Very clean & comfortable. Everything included for a one week stay. Good service on arrival. Beautiful views to wake up to every morning.
My wife and I stayed at the Sulur house from April 3-5, 2016.
-Close to Akureyri (20-30 minute drive): a great location for exploring the area.
-Incredible view of the Fjord. Wall-to-wall windows mean watching the sunset as you relax on the couch. I can't imagine a better view of the fjord, and this includes the northern lights, which we could see from inside the house.
-Radiant heating from the floor is wonderful during colder temperatures.
-Typical provisions are all present, with sleeping space for 3-4 quite easily.
-There is good paved parking available near the entrance to the house
-We had some difficulties arise with our stay, but the owners handled the difficulties very well, and I am confident both 1) that this circumstance was an exception, and 2) that they would handle any future exceptions equally well.
-Beds are *VERY* comfortable.
-Shelves and cabinets in and near the kitchen area.
-Computer provided with internet connection.
-A great guidebook in the house that has suggestions for activities and restaurants in the area.
-Nothing I'd classify as "bad".
-Hot tub has some key nuances (some are noted in the guidebook).
Cover doors are very heavy. *You need more than one person to handle this.*
It is not a "whirlpool" hot tub. No jets, nor a temperature control to keep the water warm for later.
While it's filling, you do not have hot water in the rest of the house.
Currently there is only one wooden bench in the tub, and this does not have multiple levels to it. The owners intend to add more seating in the future.
*Overall, the tub can work just fine to relax and rest muscles. You just have to plan ahead a little bit.
- The shower has no storage for hygiene items, but I this might be changed soon.
- Privacy: this house is on a farm complex with a few other houses. The one next has a view of the side windows of this house, as well as the hot tub area. Curtains are available to block the windows, so this wasn't a big deal to us.
Very nice house; well built with quality materials. It fits right in to the beautiful outdoors, with plenty of natural light and a relaxing atmosphere. A few factors made it not quite "perfect" for me, but I still gladly give this house a 4-star rating. And if you don't mind the hot tub nuances I mentioned, then it's definitely a 5-star rating. The owners provide a great place for their guests, and they appear to be continually improving the property as a whole.
Sulur is in a lovely position with stunning views across and along the fjord.
The house is clean and nicely appointed and the hot tub is an excellent feature. The kitchen was missing the described microwave but this didn’t cause us any concern.
The house location gives easy access to route 1 for exploring the north of Iceland. Even in winter Godafoss was only a 35 minutes’ drive and Myvatn could be reached in less than an hour and a half.
Thomas and Carmen sent a useful information pack when our booking was confirmed, which contained information about the property and suggestions for visits around the area. Because we were arriving in the dark Carmen also helpfully provided a site map so we could find the house easily.
The information pack explains about the web cams on site and says that no private areas (e.g. patio area) will be published on the net. However, we found that items on our patio were in view from the neighbouring house’s web cam. The hot tub lid acts as a screen so the hot tub itself is not in view but the side bedroom window is in clear sight of the web cam.
The house provided a comfortable, quiet and restful base for our trip. We were fortunate to see the northern lights several times during our stay. We enjoyed our visit very much and would certainly consider staying here again.
Situated at the wonderful Eyafjord, perfect 180° view to the west.
30 kilometers to Akureyri (airport, shopping mall, hot springs, hospital, museum, concerts) and 8 kilometers to Grenivik (shop, gas station, museum, golf course, horse farm)
Horseback riding: Near the house is the horse farm 'Polarhestar' with more than 100 horses. You can rent them for a few hours or take part in a longer ride in the nearby valleys.
Golf: There is a small 9-holes golf course in Grenivik 8 kilometers to the north.
Skiing: In winter, rides to the nearby Kaldbakkur with a big snowmobile are available. In Akureyri there is a classical skiing area with lifts and illuminated slopes.
