Nice house with a view

Our house is about 180 sqm and on two flats.  You come in to our home on the upper flat, there we have 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, laundry, garage and TV room.  The lower flat is ten steps down, there we have the living room, kitchen and the platform with our hot tub and a gas grill.  From the platform you can go down in to the garden.
We have 4 bedrooms with 4 beds (2x140 cm,1x153 cm and 1x180 cm). Extra mattresses are available if needed.

We have a great view from our home over the sea, view over a popular golf course in the lava and also view over the mountains.

There are 3 public thermal swimmingpools in Hafnarfjörður, both indoor and outdoor pools. There are many swimmingpools around Iceland and we love stopping at them while travelling around our country as well as visiting our own in Hafnarfjörður.

We have 5 bicycles for your use. Free wifi and the computer is also available. We have playstation game computers as well as lots of board games and dvd movies.

About Our Family

We are a family of five: Hafdís (1971), Marel (1972), Magni (1998), Aron Freyr (2000) and Ævar Örn (2006).
We have made eight home exchanges with intervac members; 2005 Sitges-Spain, 2006 Friesenheim-Germany, 2011 Sitges-Spain, 2013 Kissimmee-USA (Florida), 2014 Copenhagen-Denmark, 2015 Newton-USA (Boston), 2016 Silver Spring-USA (Wahington). 2017 Helsinki-Finland.
Exchanging homes is a great way to get to know other cultures and it has always been a great experience. Looking forward to having more exchanges in the future.
We are always looking for new adventures.

Lifestyle

We love travelling both in Iceland and exchanging homes with intervac members. We also like basketball, football, hiking, biking, camping, golf, sun, amusement parks, skiing and a lot more.
