Our lovely home is a traditional Icelandic house, near the centre of Reykjavík. Coming up the front stairs, the first floor has a kitchen with all modern amenities , dining room with a large table, living room with large new smart TV, with Netflix, iPlayer, ITV player and more, and a large comfy sofa. The 1st floor also has one children's bedroom with one bed (90*200).
The second floor has a newly renovated bathroom with a shower and a bath. On the 2nd floor there are also two bedrooms, one master bedroom with a large double bed (183*213) and the other childrens's bedroom with one bed (90*200). The living area is around 110 square meters.
We also have a very nice grown garden with a little treehouse and a trampoline for the children, and tables and chairs for dining or relaxing.
Our apartment is located in a nice quiet neighbourhood around 20 minutes walk from Reykjavik's city centre, where you will find lots of good restaurants, pubs and theatres, art-galleries and shops.
The great swimming pool, "Vesturbæjarlaug", is only 15 minutes walk from here or 5 minutes by bus (#15). There is a "7/11" type of grocery store 3 minutes walk from here if you need something to bite but we recommend buying your groceries at Bónus, Krónan or Hagkaup or enjoy some of the nice restaurants down town.
The bus stop is just 2 minute from here (#15 and #12) which will take you down town in just 5 minutes. Download the app Strætó / bus.is, and you can search for bus rides and buy bus tickets.
A taxi stand and car rentals are also close by either at BSI or the regional airport.

WHEN AND WHERE WE WANT TO SWAP
We are looking for a swap in Italy, France or Spain in June 2016 or in UK August 2016. We would prefer to also swap cars. We can provide a cleaner at the end of your stay so you do not have to clean before leaving if you wish.
