The space

This is our main home an old house which we are renovating in steps. It´s located in one of the oldest part of town, in a walking distance from a grocery store, the city center and the harbor. You will have the hole house for you, but you will only have access to 2 bedrooms (we lock other bedrooms when we are travelling). We love home-exchange and we´ve made many enjoyable exchanges with our home through the years so we are used to having strangers in our home.

We have licence, see licence number in photos.

Guest access

5 people can sleep in the house in 2 bedrooms (2x 90 cm beds and 1x 140 cm bed) + there is a sleeping sofa in the tv corner. Open kitchen/tv-area. One bathroom. The style is arty and personal. We like retro things. My husband is a carpenter and he loves recycling. He f.ex. made the tree house in our garden just from recycled timber.

Big garden where you can pick fresh salad for your dinner, playhouse for children, sandbox, swings and trampoline. In wintertime you can use our sleds and toboggan. You can use what you find in the kitchen - coffee, spices, tea etc. - feel like home.

We know the town and it´s surrounding very well. I´ll mail you a list with our best tips about what to do in the town and suggestions for day trips.

The perfect place for our family. For us, now, Iceland is not just an amazing place to visit but a nice place to stay. We will always remember this charming and unique house in which the kids and us had so much fun, with the tree house, the shared toys and all the little surprises that we discovered at our arrival. We felt really welcomed and privileged.
