Neighbourhood

The neigbourhood is one of the most popular and family-friendly in the city. It's in central Reykjavík, close to the downtown core (around 15 mins walk through a very nice older residential area) with its restaurants, cafés and shops but very quiet and peaceful. The neighbourhood is bordered on two sides by the sea. Both just a few minutes' walk from the apartment. There are walking/cycling paths alongside the sea. On a good day, looking across the sea, you'll see Snæfellsjökull glacier on the north side and Reykjanes peninsula on the south side. The Reykjavík Art Museum, The National Gallery of Iceland and The National Museum of Iceland are all within walking distance (the first two around 15-20 mins and the third around 10-15 mins). There are also two very nice geothermally heated outdoor pools (warm all year round, both with multiple hot hot tubs, jacuzzis, cold tubs, saunas and steambaths), cafés, two bakeries, a yoga studio and a small 'corner shop' (around 5 mins walk from the house) that has fresh fish&meat, sells just about everything you might need to cook and has excellent service. Larger supermarkets are within easy walking distance. 3 bus routes stop near the house, taking you around the west side of Reykjavik and Seltjarnarnes, downtown, to all the places mentioned above and connecting you with the rest of the bus system taking you to the neighbouring communities. Reykjavík's two largest theaters (The Reykjavik City Theatre and The Icelandic National Theater) are both easily accessible by bus. The same bus route goes to both and it stops around 5 mins walk from the house. The restaurants, cafés, nightlife, museums and shopping of downtown Reykjavík are easily accessible - especially during the summer, when its bright 24/7 and you can easily walk everywhere.

Nearest airport

Keflavík airport - the international airport in Iceland.

Getting around

Supermarkets, cafés, restaurants, museums etc within easy walking distance. There are also a few bus stops, 2-5 min walk from the house, for anything further afield. If driving, there's a private parking spot right in front of the house.

Krissa

We are a family of four – Krissa, Sigmar, MG (born in 2015) and ÍK (born in 2017). Both kids have been swapping homes since they were babies (through PLU and other platforms) and together we’ve enjoyed exchanges from 1 week to 3.5 months long, in places as different as Maui, Guadeloupe, Brooklyn and southern Sweden. We’ve loved every exchange and look forward to future ones. We like the buzz and variety of activities in cities but also the peace and quiet that more rural locations offer. Being curious, most locations are of interest to us but anywhere with good food, friendly people and good music and/or some outdoor activities (e.g. surfing, kayaking) will be particularly exciting. We are friendly, open-minded, clean, don't smoke and we will treat your home as our own.

"We've done a home exchange in Kula, Maui before and absolutely loved it. North Shore and upcountry (e.g. Kula, Makawao) listings are of particular interest but we're open to everything."

"We all love Montréal and usually visit every year. The Plateau, Mile-End and Outremont are of special interest. Open to any period. We usually visit in the summer but would also love to try a winter stay around Christmas/New Year's."

"We'd love to visit Australia, perhaps in 2023/2024, preferably setting up 2-3 consecutive exchanges in order to move around a bit (although we realise 2-3 'home bases' in a country as large as Australia is a drop in the ocean :) )"
