    Hello!

    We are a busy family of six. Young couple, Thora and Andri. We have four kids, age 13, 9, 3 and 1. We are very busy and have a lot on out plate since we recently started our own company and Thora studying masters in law.

    We live in the country side, Laugarás, which is a very small village in the south of Iceland.

    We own a big house and you will be having private room with private bathrom. Here are butiful surroundings nesr the river in this cute little greenhouse town.

    Laugarás is located near the golden circle, about 1 hour from the capital city Reykjavík.


    We need help at the house from time to time. Especially during exam season and we need gardening help aswell in the spring/beginning of summer.

    At the house we mostly need help with general housework and just another hand in running the household and babysitting.

    In the garden we would need help with painting the terrace, cleaning windows, mowing the lawn, and over all gardening work and getting rid of trash in the garden.
