  • 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 need help looking after our 3 holidays cottages. This work is best suited for a couple. Work starts at 11am and we finish no later than 2 pm. 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 for a few hours every now and then. It is also worth mentioning that to be of help to 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 yard with a private bathroom and some cozy sleeping arrangements (double bed).
    It is very comfortable and is private to you and we can supply you a kettle and a microwave in the cabin if requested.
    We very much prefer non-smokers

    There are lots of places to visit and plenty of walking to do to explore. My husband and i are easy going people and do not ask for 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.
