House in Roskilde, Denmark

Looking for a spring 2016 exchange with Iceland.

We are looking for an exchange with Iceland for a short stay arround 16/4 2016.

We also have a week of vacation from 10/10 2015 - Open for an exchange in "driving distance" from Roskilde.
Danmark også en mulighed :-)

Summer 2016: We already have plans for one week in Spain so only interested in exchange near Malaga mid July.

Our home
Our two storey house was build in 2008 and is part of a "Cohousing" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cohousing)
The surroundings in Trekroner are very peaceful. Copenhagen - the capital of Denmark - is only 30 minutes away and Roskilde the second largest city on Sjælland is only 10 minutes away. 
Trekroner has green areas, many playgrounds, small lakes, and fields with animals.

Details about our home
First floor: Open kitchen and living room. One bedroom with double bed. Bathroom with shower, washing machine, and tumble dryer.
Second floor: Three bedrooms - one bedroom with a small double bed/sofa bed, one bedroom with a little larger sofa bed, and one bedroom with a single bed. We also have a travel baby cot available and a pouffe that can be transformed in to an extra bed.
Outside: 30m2 patio with both a coal barbaque grill and a gas barbeque grill on one side and a smaller terrace with the morning sun on the other side.
The house is almost 100% powered with solar energy.
Two bikes (adult size) and three small childrens bikes.

Important notice about pets:
Unfortunately we can't make exchange with families who have pets because of allergies in our family. Sorry.

The area also offers plenty of biking and trekking trails running through scenic nature crossing secluded villages and historic sights and it is possible to take a swim at the small beach Vigen in Roskilde Fjord - or in the local swimming pool.
