The best place we have stayed in Iceland – Memorable

Modern design with high-end fittings. Well equipped for a comfortable and memorable stay. Good view of Akureyri. A big good quality TV with Netflix. High-quality speaker with blue tooth connectivity. Good quality furnishings, bedding and linens. Hot tub at the deck is a good place to view the Northern Lights which we were blessed to witness.

Stunning, luxurious, apartment in a peaceful setting overlooking The Fjord

This apartment was extraordinary. Absolutely gorgeous & luxurious. A lot of thought has gone into every aspect of this place – even down to differently sized gowns. The B&O sound system – impressive. Beautiful quality furnishings, fittings, linen, etc. It is without a doubt one of the nicest apartments I have ever stayed in whilst on a holiday. This place will linger on in our memory for a long time to come. And then there are the views….
