  • Description


    My husband and I own 3 holiday cabins in the center east of Iceland. We live in Egilsstadir a small town in the middle of the Icelandic circle. We are surrounded by stunning nature, there is so much to explore. Akureyri is only a couple hours drive and we have some beautiful little villages to visit.

We have a lot of people from different country's that come and work in the many establishments around town. It really is one if the most beautiful places on the planet.

    We need someone to help looking after the 3 holidays cottages. You never work alone and it takes roughly 45mins per cottage sometimes quicker. We start at 11am and are always finished no later than 3. Some guests stay longer so some days we will only have 1 cabin or 2. The days that we have less cabins, maybe you could do light dog walking. Both dogs are old so don't need to go far. We may on occasions ask you to dog sit if we need to go and do some stuff concerning work. It is also worth mentioning that to be of help us, you will need to have a valid driver´s license and be able to drive a manual car

  • Accommodation


    There is a small self-contained cabin in our garden with a private bathroom and some cozy sleeping arrangements.
    It is very comfortable and is private to you and we can supply you a kettle and a microwave in the cabin.
    Because our preference is for guests to share our meals with us rather than run a dual kitchen, we don´t cater for vegans/vegetarians/pescetarians.
    We very much prefer non-smokers

    What else ...

    There are lots of places to visit and plenty of walking to do to explore. My husband and i are very easy going, we do not ask much, - just help for a couple hours a day and that you respect our home and our lifestyle. We are not party people and very rarely drink. We are looking for someone who is quiet and is just happy to explore, someone who is not to loud. We will consider couples as there is often a little bit of maintenance to be done on the cabins or around the house. Again this is only a couple of hours a day.
