Flat in the heart of Reykjavik - family apartment at a great location
We are a couple (40) with three children (12, 10 and 5) and we like to visit new exciting places as well as greeting guests to our home in Reykjavík. Therefore home exchange is the ideal method of travelling for us.
Our home is located in the heart of Reykjavík, just west of the city center in a friendly and popular neighborhood. The commercial center with museums, galleries, restaurants, swimming pool (thermal bath) and shops are all within a walking distance (approx 10mn).
The apartment is on the 2nd floor of a four apartment house in a quiet but centrally located neighborhood. 95 squaremeters and very well organized and well equipped apartment with all modern amenities (Wifi, Apple TV, Netflix) which would comfortably suit a family of 4-5 people. The apartment consists of:
- Bedroom #1 has a king size bed (200x200) and an extra side bed (90x200)
- Bedroom #2 has 2 beds: 1) a bed suitable for all ages (90x200) and 2) an extra foldable bed (90x200) attached to the bunk bed
- Bedroom #3 has 1 bed; 90x200cm.
- Living room with a couch, flatscreen TV and a good family table for meals
- Modern bathroom with a shower room
- Modern and well equipped kitchen
- Communal washing room in the basement - we have a separate washing machine and a tumble dryer for your use
We are open for a car exchange if wished for. Extra bed/mattresses can be provided if wished for. If there are any special requests we are more than happy to try to comply with our guests needs.
Our car is a spacious and reliable Mitsubishi Outlander which we are willing to exchange also. With seats for 5-7 people (extra seats) and child seat/seats if wished for.
We also have bikes and scooters for both grown-ups and children which can be used by our guests.
It’s our ambition to make our guests comfortable and welcome and we can provide good information of interesting sights, excursions and recommendations regarding culture, restaurants, shops, etc.
Exchanges with other families with young children is especially suitable for us but of course we'll look into everything. We're experienced travelers and exchangers. Naturally we have all usual equipment around the house for young kids (cots, chairs etc.)

Iceland’s biggest city, Reykjavik bears the distinction of being the world’s northernmost capital, and for virtually every Icelandic visitor it serves as a gateway, just to the city itself or to the rugged adventure options beyond. Founded in the country’s southwest at the end of the 18th century, Reykjavik has been Iceland’s cultural hub ever since. These days, that culture includes a hip and internationally recognized music and arts scene.
Endless hiking and outdoor excursion options in 1-2 hour distance. Iceland's unspoilt nature awaits you.
