Pushing the boundaries of studio apartments to the limit, this incredible Airbnb is more like a house! With cutting-edge architecture that blends into the surrounding nature, this beautiful cottage is located in Akureyri, North Iceland.
There's a quiet atmosphere here, and it boasts great views over the sea, with night skies filled with the Northern Lights in winter, and midnight sun in summer.
I love the chic design of this Reykjavik Airbnb...from the flooring and the mid-century furniture, to the sleek bathroom, it's the perfect place for a stylish stay in the city. This downtown apartment is only a 5-minute walk from the downtown city center area!
For guests with a rental vehicle, you'll be happy to know free parking is offered as a perk at this top Iceland Airbnb. This means you can take easy day trips to places like the Glacier Lagoon—and we all know Iceland is all about those road trips.
I love this place. It combines smart minimalist design with a rustic feel for a decidedly eclectic Airbnb in Iceland. Set in Borganes, this place can sleep up to six—at a stretch—making it perfect for a family trip to Iceland.
This Airbnb will definitely feel like home with everyone gathered in the living room cozied up...or outside gazing at the Northern Lights from the outdoor sauna! One to remember, for sure.
This beautifully renovated luxury villa is located within a traditional Icelandic black timber house. Located on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, this top Airbnb in Iceland has some pretty awesome views as well and makes you feel like you're staying in a national park.
Everything about this place is gorgeously designed, with its private bathroom complete with roll-top bathtub and tiled floor, wood ceilings and gray color scheme, all topped off with a chandelier.
This place is set in a building that dates back to 1884 and has been renovated to perfection. There's a homely style here mixed with modern minimalism for somewhere that'll make you feel like you're staying in the pages of a design magazine.
One of the things that I like most about this place is the fact that it has its very own garden, where you can spend time soaking up some peace and quiet in the summer.
There you go people—my top picks for the very best Iceland Airbnbs! If you do end up booking yourself into one of these stunning apartments or private rooms, tag me in your Insta story (or a pic) so I can see what you’re up to… and miss Iceland all over again!
