  • Description


    We are family of four and we live in Hvanneyri, Borgarfjörður. It is on the west side of Iceland, about an hour away from Reykjavík, the capital.
    Kids are 5 and 4 years old and parents 27 years old.

    We need someone who can take care of our kids for about 2-3 hours a day, 5 days a week and take about one hour a day to clean and keep the house clean.

    My parents in law live on a farm, 30 minuets driving from us and we do visit them often. They have cows, sheeps and horses so if you like, you could take a time to be with animals, ride the icelandic horse and maybe help out there too if you like that.

    Hvanneyri is close to Reykholt, Deildartunguhver and many other interesting places that we could visit during your time with us.

    You will have your own room with bed.
