House in Rotterdam, Netherlands

*** We're looking for a nice family home somewhere on the westcoast of France this summer - or somewhere in the Morvan! Please let us know if you're interested! ***
OUR HOUSE
Our house is located close to the centre of Rotterdam. It has a double front door and four storeys. It's about 200 m2 big.
Ground level: a study and a large living room, with big glass doors opening onto the big, sunlit garden. The room contains a very large table and a hanging chair. This floor also has a toilet and a small kitchen - ideal for lunches & coffee in the garden!
First floor: Main Living Room with large glass doors opening to the garden with a French balcony, Main Kitchen (with 2 work areas) and a Dining Room with a long table which seats 8 - 10 people). There's a childrens chair available. 
Second Floor: Television Room, Toilet, Bathroom (with bath and separate shower), Master Bedroom and large glass doors opening to the garden with a French balcony.
Third Floor: Childrens Bedroom with wooden bunkbed, Playroom (with lots of Lego, My Little Ponies and other toys), with a sleeping couch which unfolds into a double bed, Washing Room with sink, washing machine and dryer, balcony.
We have WIFI throughout the whole house and a childrens computer in the living room. Bring your own laptop for fast internet.
OUR FAMILY
Our family consists of the two of us (a designer/entrepreneur and a programmer) and our two daughters (age 3 and 6). Their Play Room in the attic is light and spacey, and filled with loads of LEGO, dolls, blocks etc.
OUR NEIGHBOORHOOD
We have neighbours on both sides, a broad, childsafe sidewalk with a cute wooden bench to sit on and a lot of parking space in front of the house. We also have a big garden with a a terrace and little wooden playing house in it.
Shops (a supermarket, several bakers, an apothecaris, the HEMA etc) are located within a 5 minutes walk, as are several playgrounds. There are two parks nearby and the Rotterdam zoo Blijdorp. There are also several nice cafes and restaurants closeby.
The location has easy access to main roads and to main public transport. There are three trams (within 5 minutes walk), 2 bus stops and a subway station (within 10 minutes walk) of our house. The trams and metro stop at Rotterdam Central Station and in the city centre.
OUR CITY
Rotterdam has a large port, that means lots of beautiful bridges, river side cafes and of course the famour water cabs for transport across the city.
Rotterdam is a beautiful city, with a lot of musea (Boymans van Beuningen, The Kunsthal etc), theatres, shops (both mainstream and independent), galeries, parks and attractions like the Europoort and the havens.
From Rotterdam Central Station you can take a high speed train to Brussel (1 hour) and Paris (3 hours) as well as lots of trains to other parts of the Netherlands. There's also an airport in the city.
FOR KIDS
There's a lot to do for kids: most musea and theatres have special kids tours and activities, the zoo is within walking distance (15 minutes walk) as is the Speeldernis, a beautiful outdoor play area (winter opening too). Rotterdam also has Balorig, a large indoor playground for kids.
We have a Dutch cargo bike which you can use to transport your kids!
Please note we are newbees where it comes to home exchange, so if we forgot to mention anything, please let us know!
Thanks a lot,
Diana & JanJaap
