Wonderfully located apartment in a small building in 20 min walking distance from Reykjavik city center. The apartment is located in Laugardalur Valley wich is the centre for athletics and recreation in Reykjavík. Here you can find the city’s largest heated outdoor pool (Laugardalslaug) with extensive facilities, as hot tubs and waterslides. A short distance from the pool is the Botanical Garden and nearby is the Farm Zoo with Icelandic pets and a variety of wild animals.

The space

The apartment has three bedrooms, two living rooms, two small balconies and common garden. TV, Wifi and pretty much all the basic needs wanted by modern families....Just on the corner you will find a small Supermarket open 24/7 as well as bakery, local coffee shop, meat shop, ice cream shop, and Frú Lauga's Farmers Market who sells fresh farm products.

The apartment is very close to the scenic coastline. Along the coastline is a wide double pavement made for walking pedestrian and the other one for cyclist directed to Reykjavik Harbour wich is located in the heart of Reykjavik. Great to take a walk/cycle and enjoy the sunset or gorgeous mountain view. On a clear day you can even see the Glacier of Snæfellsnes from there. To Reykjavik harbour from the apartment is about 2.5 km and you can borrow 2 adult bicycles as well as baby seat and 2 children bikes. We live side to Laugardalur Park which is located east of the city center and serves as the capital’s main sports area with a large open-air geothermally heated swimming pool, soccer stadium, sports hall, botanical gardens, family park and zoo. Open year round, the Laugardalslaug open-air geothermally heated swimming pool is one of the best facilities in the city with hot tubs for adults and a rainbow-colored slide for kids. Next door you can enjoy winter ice skating at the sports center. The recreational expanse has picnic and barbecuing facilities and the botanical gardens make for a lovely stroll with an extensive outdoor collection of native and exotic plants.

Getting around

Getting around is really easy, our apartment is really central located in Reykjavík with multiple shops, restaurants and coffee shops nearby and really close to city center.

Member description
We are married couple with two boys at age 6 and 4. We love to travel, see different things and meet new people. Over the past two years we have done two home exchanges one in Germany and another in Spain with a great succces and that was a wonderful experience. Acutally our first home exchangers in Germany reccomended this new site and we decided to explore it further. We absolutely fell in love with this form of travel. "Travel like locals" is the words we use to describe home exchanging and it's so true. Also to be able to give our homeexchangers tips how to enjoy our beautiful country. We are rather open minded regarding destination but would prefer summer holiday for 2-3 weeks (July into the first week of August) close to beach and swinning pool. In the winter we like to travel during Christmas&New Year close to ski area.
