This cozy cottage is located at Kotabyggð 6, Vaðlaheiði in solitary with an extremely beautiful view over the fjord directly against Akureyri. There is also a very enjoyable view towards the mountain Hlíðarfjall where the skiing area is located and into the fjord Eyjafjörður.
The cottage is 50m2 with 2 bedrooms which both have double beds but above one of them is a bunk bed. There is also a possibility of an extra bed/mattress (110*100*30) in the living room. The kitchen and the living room are adjacent with a fireplace. There is a large terrace at the cottage and in the hill in front of the cottage (approx. 10 meters) there is a hot tub with exceptional view and privacy. Furthermore, there is a gas barbecue at the property as well as tableware for 5 persons.
The town Akureyri is nearby (approx. 5 minutes driving), with all services.
Over the wintertime it is possible that snow will close the road down to the cottage. If so you can leave your car at the road above the cottage and walk down to it, appr. 20-30 meters. The road is not raced but it is possible to ask for it at a cost.

Very nice location and environment. The house is a cosy one. The ability to reach homeowners directly is also another of the advantages.
We had a very pleasant holiday in this cozy little nest for a fabulous family reunion !

The house is very charming and has a beautiful view. The localisation is nice, very quiet and peaceful but also close to the city which is very convenient. We enjoyed a lot the outside hot tube with the stunning view of the city and the stars. We had a chance to see nothern lights in it. Few points to improve : the water drainage in the shower isn?t very good, the duvet cover for the two persons bed should be a cover for two and not two covers for one, and the instructions for the house (fireplace, recycling, stuff we can use or not, ...) could be a little more completed. Besides these few non very important points, we loved our stay and really recommand this house for holidays in the North.

We spent a lovely 3 days in the summerhouse! It was in a fab location, 5 minutes drive from the airport and the town, overlooking the fjord! We relaxed every night in the hot tub after busy days sightseeing. The house was well equipped for our short break and we would definately go back

The place is so nice. The view on Akureyki and the montains is so beautiful. The cottage has great windows and confortable seats just in front of Akureyki. There is to a beautiful terrace, all in intimité (). My husband was not happy about the tv because only 2 chanels were available. I was sad to leave this place :(

Nice cabin with spacious garden and beautiful view over the fjord and Akureyri. Close to town. Great hot tub. Warmer climate than the rest of Iceland so we enjoyed the sun and the BBQ on the terrace deck.
Wood stove inside that is cosy when it's cold. The furniture, decoration and the bathroom are a bit outdated.
Kitchen is not very well equipped (i.e. we missed basic things like a salad bowl) and not the cleanest we have seen at arrival (i.e. mold in water glasses). For the rest we had a pleasant stay.

Nice place to stay! The hot tub in the garden was really great with a beautiful view over the fjord and the city. Beds and sofa etc were ok. In the kitchen we could have used an oven dish, but other than that everything was provided.
There was a minor thing regarding the bed linnen, one set was missing, but this was handled very well by the host so that was no problem.
Would really recommend this place.

Ágætur bústaður og allt til staðar sem þörf er á. Gólfið á klósettinu er ónýtt. Umhverfið frábært og aðstaða utandyra mjög góð.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Summerhouse! The space is very pretty, cozy, comfortable, welcoming, and clean. The hot tub overlooking the fjord and Akureyri is fabulous. The views are spectacular! The location is very convenient to Akureyri, about 5 minutes. We loved our stay!
