  • Beschreibung



    We are a family of five, we have three kids, an 8year old girl and twins (a boy and a girl) who are three and a half years old. We also have three furry family members, an 14 years old chihuahua, a few months old border collie puppy (very active) and one cat who is mostly outside though.
    Me (Írena) and my husband (Hermann) have been together since 2008, when we were only 14 and 15 years old, and got married in 2017. We live in a small town named Hvolsvöllur, which is only about an hour away from Reykjavik. Both of us grew up in this area, Hermann in Hvolsvollur and me, in Hella (10 minutes away).

    Hermann is a police officer, work shifts and I work at a nursing home and I also teach music once a week in elementary school about 20 minutes away from Hvolsvöllur.

    Our kids are weary active, playful, funny and kind. Our oldest loves to play outside, loves music and to sing and all kinds of crafts. She is also very athletic. The twins love role playing, outside play, music and crafts. The boy loves everything about cars, likes to build things and loves to help around the kitchen and bake. He is also showing some interests in sports. Our younger girl likes to play with dolls and mommy-daddy games, loves to craft, puzzle and more relaxed kind of games and she also really likes to bake. They are also very determined and can test your patience sometimes.

    We are a rather liberal family and do not take things to seriously.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Reykjavik is only about an hour away and we have buses driving from Hvolsvöllur about 3x a day to the city. There are many beautiful places on the south of Iceland and we like to go out in the nature quite a lot and you would be welcome to join us in some of these trips of ours. The bus goes around anywhere in the country so you can see pretty much everything in the time you would be staying with us.
    We are happy to help you to find something to do and give you some advice.

    We are looking for help with:

    We will come up with a schedular for you that work for all of us but the important areas are the kitchen, living area, bathroom and laundry. We might also ask you to change the beds, tidy up a little in the kid rooms etc.

    We might need a help with dinner or lunch sometimes, so it would be better if you know your way around the kitchen.

    We do not garden a lot but if it comes up we might ask you to help.

    We might need some help with the kids, so we request people who are patient, good with kids and kind. Also an animal lover.

    Other random things:
    We might ask you to take the dog out for a walk or run to the store sometimes.

    But please note that we would never ask you to do anything you are uncomfortable with or something that is out of your ability.

    We are only looking for a woman for our own reasons, nothing personal, it’s just the way we want it. Unfortunately, we can not host couples. We will only answers emails or messages from women, to save us all some time and trouble ☺️
