About our home

see our (2008) movie on youtube

Our house has been built in 1997. Our house is not so big, but cosy and clean.
It's a house at the end of a little dead end street. It's very quiet in a save surrounding around a forest.
On the ground-floor you find a living room: sitting -corner (TV, radio,DVD) an dining- room, a kitchen (dishwasher, micro-wave, fridge,), a storage room and a toilet. Also wifi.
A room and a small bathroom with a shower and sink.

Upstairs you find a room with 2 beds, a desk, a sink and a terrace.
In the room we can make place for another bed, so we have place for 4

In the basement you find a washing machine, clothes dryer and freezers.
There is also a sauna, a shower.

There is also a garden with 700-m² lawns with a summerhouse. In good weather enjoy the outdoor kitchen with barbeque.

We have 2 chickens (do not use the barbecue). Our daughters don't live at home anymore but they can take care of the pets if you want to. We don't bring any pets with us.

We have exchanged more than 30 times (with a other organization) and the people were satisfied.
