About our home

We are a family of six (44, 42, 24, 17, 5 and 1 year old) in a quiet neighbourhood in Keflavik. Just a 30 minutes drive from Reykjavik and 10 minutes from the airport. We love our house and keep a nice, clean and organised home and spend most of our time and money renovating our 50´s house. It is our sanctuary and we will treat other homes with the same respect. Our house has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a beautiful garden with a hot tub in a closed and private garden. Our car is a Toyota Verso for up to 7 people and just 2 years old. We have had two successful home exchanges before (with friends and on another exchange website) and are looking forward to the next one.

More about us

  1. We are a married couple with four children; Simon 24 years old lives with us and also likes to travel with us. Kári is almost 17 years old, Eldey Vaka is 5 years old and we have Agnes Eir that is 1 year. And we have a cat, Frosti that is very easy going and his hobby is to sleep. He always sleeps at night in the washroom. In previous exchanges our guests have looked after him. But we can also have him stay somewhere else.

  2. Björn (44) works in cyber-security and is a freelancer. Sara (42) is a social-worker and a family-therapist.

  3. We love quiet places, in the country. Also we love the city. We are open to all sorts of vacation, that suites the family. We would like to travel to locations in the alps, or to Tuscany, we also are very interested in the Smålands in Sweden and Maine USA.
