About our home

We offer a comfy, cosy & modern -well located- house with small garden around. Our home is child friendly & kids proof-packed with toys & games to keep the kids entertained. We've got a lovely home in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood. So have a cup of espresso, and a Stroopwafel (typical Dutch cookies are a must). Lounge, read, listen to music, or watch a movie in our living area and make yourself at home. Our duplex house is a 2 storey building. Therefor it comes with an internal staircase. It comes with a kitchen with lots of utensils, downstairs toilet, (upstairs toilet as well).

Abcoude is a small, remote village with unique shops/ deli's, supermarkets, railway station, bust station. Located in the green heart of the Netherlands, close to both Utrecht, Amsterdam, Den Haag, hipster Rotterdam, and Leiden.


Laura's reviews

As a host (6)

More about us

  1. We are Robbert and Laura. Robbert is an creative (broadcasting) and Laura is a freelance copy/ travel writer and...mum. We enjoy traveling around with our daughters of 7 and 9. We fell in love with Peru, costa Rica New Zealand: felt very at home in our motor home. Therefor an exchange with a camper would be a great option. We would love to see a bit more of the world..with our kids. Any tips for trips?

  2. The Netherlands may be small, but has a lot to offer. As a host we would like to guide you you'll see Holland through the eyes of a local.

  3. We are fans of nature, culture, art, sunny destinations, hiking, biking -yes we are an active family-, vegetarian food.

Where is it?


Abcoude is a small 'pictoresque' village, but comes with everything you need such as nice cafes, restaurants and shops. This laid back village is located in a green area. Waiting to be explored by bike, boat or car. Our house is close to the city Amsterdam- you could even go to AMS by boat-, in the centre of Abcoude. At our place you can enjoy the remote village life. Just slide the doors open en step into our -not so big but- sunny garden. Into walking and hiking? A new hike adventure awaits just across our doorsteps. In summer it may get hot -Yes even in the Netherlands- Just take a dive in de Vinkeveense plassen, or rent a boat and explore the region by boat. Enjoy your stay!
