It’s a beautiful place, but for the price, it clearly needs some maintenance and additional thoughtful touches. The front door wouldn’t lock, which felt unsafe, the tv was confusing and had no cable. There is not much privacy- we expected curtains on the (beautiful) giant windows…

Thank you Jessica, the door lock broke and that has not happened before and we did have our carpenter to fix it as is normal when somethings brakes ! you told me it that it was not issue through your airbnb comments ,, the jacuzzi works fine if you fill it up right and control the heating ! it has worked for other people that do stay and do follow instructions ! Why did you not call my phone if you did have any trouble with instructions ? I could have helped you and only 1 phone call away ;) We do not like to have curtains for the big window and people like it so far as we do too :) They like the views :) Have good travel and be happy :)

We had an amazing stay at Gunnar’s place! The home is even more incredible in person with views to die for. The hot tub is so welcomed after a long day in the cold. We highly recommend staying here when you are in the area!!

My husband and I loved staying at Gunnar’s home while on our honeymoon. The hot tub was easy to set up and the view was incredible. It’s also quite close to all the Myvatn sites and is an easy starting off point for anything along the ring road.

By far the most amazing Airbnb I have ever stayed in. The views are incredible from every room, at any time of day and in any weather. The decor was modern and comforting. Note that you need to bring your own shampoo and shower supplies. The hot tub also takes one hour to fill up…

I can’t say enough good things about Gunnar’s amazing home. It’s clean and modern, but very cozy and welcoming and has everything you need for a great stay. The view of Akureyri is so good that even after seeing all of the amazing scenery in Northern Iceland, we couldn’t wait to …
