We are a family of five and we live in sub-Reykjavík.
We are 40 and 46 years old couple and three boys 12, 10, and 5 years old.
We live in a duplex house with our own garden with a hot tub. We live 100m from the cost where there is a nice lane for relaxing walks.
There are good bus connection to downtown Reykjavík from our house.
We expect that the volunteers will simply be a part of our family while they stay.
We would prefer our ww to stay for few months but we have found out that is better to agree about to weeks to see if we can let it work.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
The help will include mostly helping in the house, keeping it clean and tidy. That will not fill all your time so we will ask you to do thinks that suits your ability for example doing the laundry, babysitting, maintenance and garden etc.
Simply giving extra hands to a busy family of 5. :)
(2-3 hours in the morning housekeeping/gardening - 1 hour in the afternoon helping with the busy home and playing with the youngest one. Maybe babysitting one night at week).
We like to have our ww to joining us for dinner at ca. 18:30. The house is very loud so you must have easy to sleep through war of supermen and vikings. We have lot of friends and family that come for visit and you must like to mingle in and talk with new people.

We like to have our ww as a part of the family and enjoy if people like to spend there time with us and the kid's.
