  • Description


    My name is Kjartan, 61 year old Icelander. I live in Norrudden and that's a small beautiful village, just 40 km from Stockholm city centre. I live with my two wonderful Border Collie, Persie and Alexandra and the supercat Sofia

    I have a little house about 35 square meter on my land. There is also have a smaller cabin which are 15 square meter that I use as a guesthouse. I’m also building new houses on my land.

    I mostly need help with my dogs who need a lots of daily motions. I also need help to do the garden in order and other domestic things

    Last year I had two Workawayer and they lived in a small cottage I have on the plot. Shower and toilet are in another building. It worked well.

    Our closest town is Tungelsta 7,5 km and Västehaninge 11,0 km. There is all service such a Supermarkets, Restaurants, Health care, Gas station, Bank, Wine shop etc. There is also bus and commuter train. It takes about 20 minutes with the train to Stockholm Central stations and same time to Nynäshamn
    From my home is about 1 km walking to bus stop to Västehaninge
