    Description

    Relaxed household my husband works irregular hours as fisherman and a carpenter. I'm a glass artist and work from home. We have a lovely 12 years old boy and Lappi our dog is just 8 month old.

    We just moved back to Iceland after 7 years living in UK. We bought a guesthouse and due to Covid situation there are no guests. So we are using the time to decorate, painting, building a shed and we're also putting up my glass workshop. In the near future we hope to put up a glamping site and a small art school. It would be great to get someone to help us with this project.



    Please note that we can only take a independent person or a couple.


    We speak english, icelandic and some spanish.

    As we're starting a new glamping project it can be a great learning curve for both of us. Beautiful location with a plain view to the famous Eyjafjallajökull. we welcome anyone that is interested in art as we are starting a small art school. You will surely learn a lot about glass art as I been doing glass art for many years. No experience needed . . Great opportunity for independent person or couple to travel in Iceland as we're located in the heart of the south coast.
