  • Description


    We are a family of three and we live in Egilsstaðir on the east side of Iceland. We are 36 (Snjólaug) and 30 (Óli) year old and we have a three year old daughter.
    I, Snjólaug, am looking for somebody to come and help me with my daughter while I am at work because I work on shifts. My daughter is in kindergarten during the day so I need someone to take care of her while I am working. My boyfriend is at sea so he will not be at home very often. It is best if you have driver's license. Like i sad I woks shifts so some times you need to cook and put her to sleep. Please send us e-mail for more info :)

  • Help


    I need some extra hands at home both to help me with my daughter and also to take care of the apartment. My daughter is very easy going child and very adorable. It doesn't take much to keep her calm and she is always smiling.
    But nevertheless I need some eyes to look over her while i am working.

    What else ...

    We live in a small town called Egilsstaðir in one of the most beautiful places on east side of Iceland. There are plenty of tourist attraction in this area and nice hiking ways. When I am off work I can show you this beautiful area and also when I'm on holiday I often go to my parents farm.
    Egilsstaðir is a small town and every thing is in walking range from our house.
    On weekends my daughter isn't at home very often so you could plan longer trips.
