The apartment is a part of the house complex at Sunnuhlíð, a farmland close to the town of Akureyri. The apartment is perfect for three adults, two couples or families traveling on their own. Guests can enjoy the beautiful view of Eyjafjörður and Akureyri.

The space

The apartment is a part of the house complex at Sunnuhlíð farmland – few kilometers from Akureyri.
On the property of Sunnuhlið there are also three new small modern houses and a farmhouse, now a guesthouse.
The apartment is perfect for three adults, two couples or families traveling on their own in Iceland.
In our property guests can enjoy the beautiful view of Eyjafjörður (the fjord) and Akureyri. A car is necessary to reach Sunnuhlíð, located 12 km from Akureyri and the local airport. The apartment is very easy to access from route 1 (The Ring Road).
If this apartment (A) is occupied at your preferred dates, please check the twin apartment (B) for availability, the farmhouse (The house in the country- great view) or the small three houses (New small houses - great view! nr. 1, 2 or 3).

Guest access

There are two twin apartments in a former cheep cote - completely rebuilt in a new modern style. In each are two bedrooms: two with two single beds each. The living room/kitchen has a dining table, chairs and a sofa, and not to forget panoramic view of Eyjafjörður and Akureyri through the windows.
The kitchen is equipped with a stove, oven, fridge with a freezer and all other basic kitchen equipment.

The bed linen/towels are included in the price for guests staying two nights or more. For one night staying our guests pay a fee of 10€ per person for bed linen/towels.

Interaction with guests

On the property of Sunnuhlið you will be in close contact with nature and can go on short or longer trips straight up the hill from the house. Excellent for bird watching or relaxing walks in nature. Walking distance from the house you will find “The folk and outsider art museum” and a small village named Svalbarðseyri. We would like to emphasise the great view from the houses at the midnight sun.
The apartment is in a quiet neighbourhood at 12 minutes drive from Akureyri, which offers all the usual attractions of a town. From Sunnuhlíð you will have access to all the activities and services that the North of Iceland has to offer. (i.e. Mývatn, Dettifoss, the Grand Canyon of Jökulsárgljúfur, whale watching, sightseeing, hiking, horse riding, etc.)

If you plan spend just a night here - skip my review because great location, fast WiFi and clear apartment will be offered to you which you will enjoy for sure. But if you plan to stay longer - few things are important to mention. The wall between both apartments is so thin that you will hear each word your neighbors are saying, which can bother you a lot and it was in our case (we spent 5 nights there). Located in corridor waching und drying machines are great staffs, but due to poor isolation (thin door) you will „enjoy“ a noise each day in your apartment which we did. Absence of dish machine and TV set should be mentioned because it can be slightly uncomfortable during relative long stay. We would recommend to solve these issues - than it would 100% recommended hosting there.

Response from Valtýr:
Thanks Anton for your review, Despite our best efforts in making the apartment sound proof, by insulating with stone wool covered from both sides with plaster boards and plywood we have received some complaints regarding noise between the apartments. Specialists call it some kind of “conductivity”. The problem is not because of thin walls but by some mistakes in the construction. This is something we take very seriously and we aim to come up with a solution in cooperation with our specialists when we close this season. We sincerely apologise for the discomfort it made to you and your family. Dish machine and TV are not mentioned in the description of the apartment. There is not a place for the dish machine. TV is suggestive. For longer staying we will in our texts emphasise the farm house (House in the country – great view!) as a better option. It is much bigger, it stands alone, it has a TV, but the house is not as modern as the apartments. Thanks again - we value honest comments.

The house is perfect for a family of four. The views from the living room are great. The kitchen is very well equiped and I appreciated the induction plaques and the cooker hood. It is really useful when travelling for more than a week to have access to a washing machine and a dryer. The house is super design, it looks exactly as in the pictures
