About this listing

The house is one of three new modern houses at Sunnuhlíð. Opened in February 2015. The houses are especially designed for a couple or a small family traveling on their own in Iceland. Guests can enjoy the beautiful view of Eyjafjörður and Akureyri.

The space

The house is one of three new modern houses at Sunnuhlíð farmland, opened in February 2015 - few kilometers from Akureyri.
The houses, all identical, are especially designed for a couple or a small family travelling on their own in Iceland. Although description of the houses says they accommodate only two people, there is no problem for a couple with two children to stay. On our property guests can enjoy the beautiful view over Eyjafjörður and Akureyri. A car or bike is necessary to reach Sunnuhlíð. There is easy access from route 1 (the ring road).
On the property of Sunnuhlíð there is a bigger house for several guests and two smaller apartments.
If this house is occupied at the date you prefer, you can check the other two (house nr. 1 or nr. 3). We have also two apartments "Apartment in the country -great view! Apt. A or Apt.B and a bigger house, “House in the country – great view!”

Guest access

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.

The master bedroom is on a balcony (upper floor), and the sofa in the living room can be changed into a double bed (pull out couch). The kitchen is equipped with an induction stove, fridge with a small freezer, coffee machine, toaster, minute grill, and all other basic equipment. The living room has a table that fits four, a sofa and panoramic windows. The house is well insulated and has central floor heating and a small radiator for drying wet clothes. There is a shower in the bathroom.

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 called Svalbarðseyri which has a pool and a beach. We would like to emphasize the great view from the houses at the midnight sun.
The house 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.)

We stayed for 3 nights, and it was such a wonderful experience. The house is quiet, well-located just off the Ring Road, and well-equipped. There is no microwave or toaster, but the kitchen has pots and pans, cooking utensils, a stove, and a grill. It was perfect. Our only complaint was how hot the house grew, due to nonexistent cloud cover on the days we were there. Opening the windows led to an influx of flies so we took turns opening the front door periodically to cool the house down. Otherwise, we had absolutely no complains. The house was the perfect size for the two of us, and it was clean and modern. We highly recommend staying here. We hope to return in the future!

This is a wonderful house, light, airy, modern and tremendous views over the fjord, with beautiful sunsets. I was so impressed that Valtyr had designed and built these three houses himself. It was a great base to explore all the many things to see and do in the north. Valtyr was very friendly and helpful - he sorted out my change of plans and also gave some good tips about what to see in the local area. I would highly recommend staying here.

What a cool little cabin! The views of the fjord are awesome, it's close to Akureyri, right off the Ring Road, and it was one of the cooler lodging spaces we had on our honeymoon. Valtyr greeted us shortly after we arrived, and assured us we could hike anywhere we pleased, so we tried to climb the top of the fjord (but ran out of good light!). Clean, modern, and cool, this is a great place to stay near the Capital of the North! Thank you!

My husband and I had a two night stay at Valtyr's place. The little house felt so cozy! We were both impressed with how intentional and efficient the house was. I will absolutely recommend this Airbnb to my friends.
