Wonderful apartment in central Reykjavik - Non simultaneous exchange is a possibility, otherwise we have made plans for summer 2016

We are Esther and Olafur. We both work in the theatre and love to travel during the summer. We have made six exchanges through Intervac, several through other sites, and have always had a wonderful experience.

Our apartment is 100 years old but completely renovated. The apartment 126 square meters with 3 meter high ceilings and all modern appliances and wifi broadband internet. 

We are in the  city centre, but several streets from the bars and cafes so we completely escape the noise during weekends. We have a bakery across the street, delicatessen shop in the basement, supermarket around the corner. Restaurants and shops 50m away.

Our bathroom has a large walk in shower and bathtub and the living room has a fireplace, piano and a new television.

The kitchen has a gas stove and a dishwasher. From the kitchen you can step out on to a small balcony overlooking the street.

We have one double bedroom and a childrens room with a bunk bed for two children or adults. We can put up two inflatable guest beds in our second living room. We can also arrange to rent additional bedrooms with private entrance on the 1st floor. (Our neighbour rents out rooms during the summer.)

Our car is a Toyota Rav SUV. We have two good bicycles and two children's bicycles and can arrange for more to be available.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
