  • Hi, I contact with Bodvar and Gudrun because I’m interested in sending them my CV, in case that new personnel is needed for the summer season. I have worked in Iceland before: I have a recommendation card from Deplar Farm’s management. Please write me back. Thank you. Regards Juan F.
    Hi Juan. We do not need to add staff. Best regards Gudrun

This is a small and cozy family-run place where you can find homey atmosphere :) We live in the same building as the guest house and we are the only staff. We focus on being environmentally friendly, use environmentally friendly cleaning products and recycle as much as possible.
During the high season we work all days in the guesthouse. We also have a construction company so we are pretty busy. We have two daughters who are involved in the guesthouse, both in cleaning and reception, when they have spare time or when we are not around. In our spare time we like to play golf in the summer and ski in winter. Both of these sports can be practiced in Akureyri :)
Our favorite place close by it the towns swimming pool, one of the best in Iceland. Botanical garden, which is within walking distance, is glorious in summer and autumn. It is also great to walk to the city center and go to some of the nice cafés there :) The golf course is 18 hole and only in 5 min drive from our guesthouse. Great restaurants are in a walking distance from us, only 5 minutes walk to the center and there you can pick from traditional Icelandic to Indian.
