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.

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.)

An absolutely stunning apartment! Modern, comfortable and impeccably clean. The views and location are fabulous. We stayed as a family of four and had ample room. Laundry facilities were shared but convenient. Cleaning fees are not included in the price so you are expected to thoroughly clean up before you depart. Not a problem for us, but I did think that having to sweep was a bit excessive for the premium price. Nevertheless, I would highly recommend it to anyone. The host met us upon arrival and was always available if we had any questions.

The accommodations are beautiful and modern, and feature a beautiful view of the fjord near Akureyri (15 minute drive away). Host respects the privacy of guests and is available on request, but we did not have occasion to meet him during our brief stay. Be aware that the host appears not to prefer short stays. Guests staying one day are expected to do a thorough cleaning including vacuuming, and are charged extra for linens and towels. They are also not permitted to use some facilities such as the washer/dryer, according to a note posted in the building. We did our best to respect the cleaning rules and to leave the apartment in the same excellent condition in which we found it. We would recommend this apartment for anyone staying in the area.

Valtyr was always available to help. The place was very clean and the view was amazing. Close enough to Akureyri if you need anything yet far enough to let your kids play without fear of vehicles.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the apartment to others. The apartment was wonderful and we were pleasantly surprised by the pack 'n' play that was in the room when we arrived - it was perfect for our 17 month old to sleep in. We were slightly disappointment that the laundry was shared with the other apartment. As the laundry was being used by the other apartment we couldn't start using it until 11pm, which made for a very long night.

Sorry to hear, but there is not enough space in the corridor for four machines (washing machine and dryer x 2) :)

Beautiful place away from town, although an easy drive (for restaurants etc). Very clean and host was friendly, knowledgeable of the area, and helpful. We enjoyed beautiful morning light on the mountains across the fjord and two nights of Northern Lights from the comfort of the apartment with its large windows. I would definitely recommend this apartment!

I live with my wife Katrín in Sunnuhlíð, I am an economist and she is a reflexologist. We have four children, who have all flown the nest, and many grandchildren. We have travelled a lot in Iceland and know the neighbourhood area very well - from the shore up to the mountains. …
