Acerca de nuestra casa

We are a family of four, living in a modern duplex on the Alftanes peninsula, approx 15 minute drive from Reykjavik city center. The first floor has a large open area with high ceilings and a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and a living room. On the first floor there is a bathroom (with large bath and shower), one small children's room with a small bed and one large children's room with one bed (90x200cm). Also on the first floor is a laundry room adjacent to a large garage. We have some outdoors equipment and golf clubs that can be put to good use at the small local golf course (2 minute drive away)

The second floor has a living room equipped with TV (Netflix, blue-ray etc) and a sofa (sleeps 2) as well as a master bedroom (queen size bed) with walk-in closet and small toilet. Bedroom has ceiling windows which can be opened to introduce soothing ocean sounds during night.

The total size of the house (including garage) is approx 200 square meters (2200 sq feet). We have a large grown garden with a new BBQ, tables and chairs for outside relaxing.

Our apartment is located in an extremely quiet neighbourhood around 14-18 minute driver from Reykjavik city center. The house is only a couple of minutes walk away from horse stables and the shoreline with lots of bird life. The presidential palace is also within walking distance. The house is a perfect place for the new years festivities, only a few minutes away from the new years' bonfire and a great spot for viewing the new years' fireworks in the Reykjavik area.

Iceland's latest outdoors swimming pool is in the neighbourhood with hot tubs, "wave pool" and the largest water-slide in Iceland, only 5-7 minutes walk from our house, it includes a fully equipped gym for some nice workout.
Nearby there is also a cafe which offers inventive lunches during weekends.

There is a bus stop for #23 is only 2-3 minutes from the house which takes you to Gardabaer where it is possible to connect to #1 to travel to Reykjavik or Hafnarfjordur city center. Tickets can be purchased online. During weekends, bus coverage is limited and needs preparation.

We are looking for a swap in Italy, preferably Sardegna, July 14-23.
We would also consider a swap for NYC, preferably Brooklyn, June 16-21.
Furthermore we're interested in a swap for a vacation in Florida during wintertime or a skiing vacation in Colorado during wintertime (incl. Christmas and new years)
We can offer a car if needed.

Where is it?


The Álftanes peninsula is a quiet haven in close proximity with Reykjavik. The most popular activities include a visit to the swimming pool (with the only "Wave pool" in Iceland), in particular popular with the younger generations. Also Álftanes has several walking paths that are popular during the summer in the lava or by the beach.
