House in Reykjavík, Iceland

Hello
We are a family looking forward to exchange in Holland (or neighboring places) in middle/late July 2017.
We have one cat that needs occasional feeding.

Our home is a friendly family home in a quiet area in Reykjavík, about 10 minutes from the city center. It is on 2-3 stories and is about 150 m2.
It has a master bedroom with a king size bed, one larger bedroom with a bunk bed and a third one that has a an additional bed.
The garden has a small porch facing south, a gas BBQ and is child friendly.
If one wants to cycle it is possible to go to a the beach or to swimming pool in 10 minutes without crossing any roads. Elliðaárdalur with its nature and salmon river is also just 10 minutes away.
All usual appliances are in the house.
We do have bicycles.
Car exchange can be arranged in some instances.
