Looking for a 2-3 week exchange ... will you challenge and surprise us with a nice location or destination?

Residential House/Family Home in the suburbs of Amsterdam

Nice spacious familiy house in a quiet residential area with private garden (Ground and 2 floors, 165 m2, 4 bedrooms) Property lies approx. 7 km from downtown Amsterdam and the Museum District (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh, Stedelijk museum, Concert hall etc).

Cable TV in living & master bedroom, highspeed internet, WIFI. Fully equipped kitchen. BBQ etc.

There are 4 bedrooms, one of them with a double bed. Two kids rooms with a single that can be extended into a double bed, and a small single room. One downstairs toilet, one bathroom with bath toilet and shower on 1st floor and one bathroom with toilet and shower on 2nd floor. There is bedding and towels for all. Smoking is not allowed. We have a well equipped kitchen. Our garden is around the house: a seating area in the front garden with a view, a side garde equipped with trampoline, swings etc. and a private secluded garden in the back with a a terrace equipped with chairs, table, lounge couch, WEBER barbecue, a detachable hammock etc. The ideal place for a private meal, reading a book or chilling out in the sun. There is also a large study on the first floor with a nice view, also a Concept 2 Rowing machine and weights available for health enthusiasts.

Parking in downtown Amsterdam is quite expensive but around our house you can park for free!

You can reach the city centre and the museums (Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum) 25 minutes with public transport or bike. In the area you can find, parks, supermarkets, a typical old Dutch windmill, typical canal house boats and public transport. And all is within walking distance. If you would like a local drink or meal there are a variety of international restaurants, Thai, Chinese, Sushi, Middle Eastern and good old Dutch food in the old village of Sloten - a historic small village first recognized in 1100 AD (approx 5 minute walk).

We are 5 minutes drive from Schiphol airport but we hardly hear the planes (sometimes with infrequent south winds). Our house is close to the Amsterdam ring road (A10) and within 30-45 minutes drive to some of the main Dutch beaches. Also relatively close to Germany and Belgium (90 minutes by car).

Open to swapping cars as well (BMW316 seating 4 p.).

We have a cat. And minimal care is appreciated (feeding dry food once a day). The cat can enter and leave the house through a chip controlled cat-door in the kitchen. She is really easy: playfull, non-agressive and used to children's attention.

Let us know your preferences! If you need more information or photos or have any questions, please let us know. We will react in short time.

About Our Family

We enjoy travelling around the globe, from Asia to European destinations and the America's.

With our kids we are quite active as they both play competative hockey and tennis. So each weekend we are out to matches (where I also referee from time to time). In summertimes we also like camping out. And when at home we spend a lot of time outside. Our BBQ is frequently lit up and we enjoy wining and dining with neighbourhood friends.

In our living area we use our bikes for most things. It's easy fast and enjoyable. However every now and then I like to take my motorbike for a spin (an older BMW R1100R). We also have 2 cars for functional transportation and holidays.

Feel free to contact us for possible homeswaps and Q&A. Even shortterm weekend swaps are welcome.
