Overview

About the property

16'000 m2 land, steam bath, hot tub, grill, exclusive equipment

This exclusive villa is very well situated just opposite Akureyri. It is rented by celebrities but also by other people who enjoy the location and the high standard of the house. It was built by the Icelandic architect Fanney Hauksdottir in 2006. It was recently refurbished with high-quality equipment such as ReVoX audio equipment as well as with attractive materials such as walnut, shale and glass.

The house is surrounded by a 16'000 m2 garden and a security fence. An alarm system and cameras ensure safety for the guests. Any kind of additional service is available on request.

During winter snow drifts may block road access to the house. The road to our fence and the driveway is not maintained during winter time. In this case a short walk (400 meters) is necessary. If you have difficulties with this, have a look at our house Leifsstadir: http://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p2365219.

Please note that this is a strictly non-smoking environment.

Amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. Amazing views. It lacked the personal touches of some of the other homes we stayed in. If it were my rental, I'd provide crips white bedding and towels. I replace the cushions on the sofa (which have holes in) with new ones. This home is fabulous but could, with very little, be extraordinary.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

We planned our entire 2 week vacation around staying here. Once we got there, we were so happy we did. It was the nicest place we have ever stayed at on vacation ever and we travel all the time. We loved the hot tub and my husband loved the steam room. The day trip info was helpful and we loved the recommendation on the whale watching. We hated to leave after our three night stay!!

Stunning Property, A Destination unto itself

  • 5 of 5

This property might possibly be one if the most beautiful properties that I have ever stayed in. It is a great place to relax and de-compress. I might travel to Iceland simply for the experience of staying at this property. Anyway, things to know: there is no TV, there are three bedrooms one of which has a sofa bed- perfectly comfortable by the way, one bedroom has its own ensuite but there are other bathrooms. The view is stunning in any weather, everything is set up for your comfort and relaxation. There was one of the days we were there that two of us just decided to not go anywhere but to simply stay and enjoy the house!

Incredible property - we didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for two nights and upon viewing it had wished we'd booked for longer. Everything is immaculate and the house manager was quick to help us with any questions we had. She even met us at a predetermined location and escorted us to the house and showed us around. It is the perfect place for a vacation with all the necessary, plus some darn right decadent, amenities. The views are incredible. Before we left we were already making plans to visit again - winter would be dreamy here - we're Canadians so the idea of being snowed in for a bit is quite appealing!

The house Hrafnabjörg is one of the most attractive houses in Iceland. It is located on a hill just opposite the city center of Akureyri with a magnificent view to the fjord. The short distance to the city, the opportunities for trips and the standard of the house are one of it's kind.
