  • Description


    we are young married couple (34 and 36 years old) with four children. we have two dogs, one that is mixed and one chihuahua. The children are in the age range between 1 year old and 14 years old. We live in Akranes, Iceland and here we have the beach called langisandur, a popular lighthouse and a hot tub at the beach called Guðlaug (you can find it on facebook)
    We would welcome help keeping the house clean, with the kids and the dogs. we are flexible and try our best to make our workawayers feel welcome. Sylvía is working in a preschool but is also in full time university studying to be a preschool teacher and Stefán works shifts in an aluminium factory.

    my husband works day and night shifts but I work 8 hours per day. the children go to school and have gymnastics and football practice so we would mostly need help with the kids and keeping the house clean. It would be great if you are interested in taking the two youngest boys out for a walk, to play or to te swimming pool.
