About our home

Hello!
Our apartment is a 136 square meters large in Laugardalur a great central location and in 20 min walking distance from the city center. The transportation is very good from our home, great access to bicycle paths and bus stops at the next corner. The surroundings are very friendly and family oriented. The apartment is on second floor with a lovely views and large windows. Bright and spacious living room with a balcony and large kitchen. Two bathrooms, three bedrooms; one master bedroom (with balcony) and two kids rooms. The garden is shared with 3 other apartments in our house but very family friendly with a trampolin and soccer goals in the summer time for you to use. (As we have three boys then we have many kids toys, Playstation etc.)

Laugardalur is very central but also a national park. Here you can find lot of activities and beautiful green surroundings just few steps away from our home. Great running paths, botanical gardens, Cafés, Family park and zoo, National sport stadium, Laugardalshöll arena and other sport facilities. There you can also find a big outdoor swimming pool area that we visit alot - the best is to walk there in the bright summer evening and walk back with the kids in the pajamas. All this in 5 minute walking distance.

The Keflavík international airport is in 30-40 minute driving distance along with the Blue lagoon. The Reykjavík domestic airport is in 5 km distance.

We will take very good care of your home and are looking for exchanges that care the same for our apartment. For more information please don´t hesitate to contact us.

More about us

  1. We are Hildur, Halldór and our three boys Óttar, Rúrik and Grímur. We have lived in this street for 14 years and moved to this apartment five years ago from across the street, just didn´t want to move out of this lovely surrounding and great location. Home exchange sounds like a very good way to travel and to experience new places. If you are interested in travelling to Reykjavík we are more then willing to help out with some Icelandic travel tips.

  2. Halldór works as an marketing manager for an insurance company. Hildur works in a bank as a manager in business solutions.

  3. We love to travel and discover new places. We have had one successful swap to Helsinki in the summer of 2019 and are looking forward for next adventure.
