Flat in Reykjavik, Iceland

We have already made an exchange agreement for the summer of 2013.
The apartment is said to be 86 sqm. but it has a lot of slanted walls and everything under 1,8m is not counted in, so I would estimate the main floor to be about 100 sqm and the loft is about 40 sqm.
Our neighbours are very friendly and we have a common garden with a trampoline the kids love to use.
The neighborhood is very nice, close to good grocery stores, a great swimming pool and about 4km (2.5mi) from the city center.

Our Neighbourhood

We are located just 200 m from a green area called Laugardalur Valley (Hot Spring Valley). There you will find the following:
Reykjavík Zoo and Family Park
Reykjavik Zoo and Family Park in Laugardalur Valley is an ideal place for a family outing. The zoo houses about 150 animals of 19 species, including farmyard animals and wild animals such as seals and reindeer. After viewing the animals at close quarters, perhaps watching the seals being fed or riding and Icelandic horse, the children can enjoy the rides and activities in the adjacent Family Park.
Laugardalslaug Thermal Pool
Laugardalslaug is the city’s largest pool with extensive facilities, located in Laugardalur Valley. Its facilities include a 50m outdoor pool, outdoor children’s pool and paddling pool, two waterslides, numerous “hot pots“, steam bath, gym and mini golf course.
The Reykjavík Botanical Gardens
The Reykjavík Botanical Gardens contains examples of most Icelandic plants (about 300-350) as well as thousands of foreign plants. There's also a cafe in the gardens where you can enjoy a lovely cup of coffee.
