GP swaps only on blue days ONLY LOOKING FOR CANARY ISLANDS, ICELAND AND DENMARK for reprocional swap (Jylland for august 2023) - direct flights from Tenerife to our hometown with Niceair. Also direct flight to our hometown from Copenhagen with Niceair. ------------------ Our duplex is located in Akureyri the second biggest town in Iceland outside the capital area (we own the whole house but there is a small rental apartment in the other half of the house). Our home is on 3 floors with 3-4 bedrooms and 2 balconies. It´s in a walking distance from a grocery store, bars and restaurants - and the swimming pool is just across the street, steaming hot all year round with the best slides in whole Iceland! The style is arty and personal. We like retro things. My husband is a carpenter and he loves exploring with timber. Our home is therefor in a constant change. First floor: - Entré, - Bathroom with shower and a sitting bathtube. - Bedroom which is split in two bedrooms with a sliding-door, each with a single bed. Perfect for kids or fit adults. One of the bed is a bit low and the bed in the other room is a bit high. It´s our youngest kid room. (note this room is in a change an will soon just be one room without the sliding doors and probably just one bed, new pictures will come when it´s ready.) - Laundry room. Second floor: -Small living room and kitchen. Sleeping sofa in the living room. -Homeoffice. -Small bedroom with 160 cm bed, this bedroom is inside of the livingroom and the homeoffice and does not have a door. -Bedroom with 90cm bed. 2 balconies. Sleepingsofa in the living room. Third floor: - Bedroom with 1x140 cm bed. In summer we normally have trampoline outside. Bikes might also be available. In winter you can use our sleigh and toboggan. You can rent ski in Hlíðarfjall, the ski area above our town. Note: this is a non smoking home - no smoking or vaping inside the house. Note: we just moved to this house in August 2020 and most of the reviews are about our old home, located in the same town, about 15 minutes walk from this house.
