About our home

We created our city dream house in our favourite Amsterdam neighbourhood: De Pijp. An antique house, newly renovated and decorated mid-century/modern style with high ceilings, 10 large glass sliding doors to private double sized garden and open kitchen with larger dining in the extension. All (luxury) amenities included that you might expect. Wired + WiFi internet, Netflix, screens and other audio-tech. The master bedroom is connected to the master bathroom: double shower, large bath tub and fresh towels. The bedroom for our daughter, we can add double bed for kids. Optional is the in-house separate-entrance studio with extra kitchenette and bathroom (sleeps max 3 people, lot's of privacy). We got 2 front doors because originally this was a double floor level house. The studio for potential extra guests/kids to be discussed (separate manager + separate for guests). House size is about 170 m2 excl. guest studio (30 m2).


More about us

  1. We're both film directors: Juliette creates documentaries, Ruben making fictions. We're interested in art and innovation subjects, crossing domains in music, science and anthropology. We work internationally and are eager to develop our travelling work / leisure balance.

  2. Our daughter Gaia is our most beloved creation to date; she's full of youth energy, funny and loves both the city and outdoors (not unimportant: she's quite tidy and clean - so no worries home owners!)

  3. We love to experience the home swapping. We are also on the Behomm community website, but now also on LOVE HOME Swap to broaden the choices and locations. Eager to meet you two!

Where is it?


Our home is located in the best area of Amsterdam; most diverse restaurant offerings (in the world?), shops, fresh Albert Cuyp market, awesome cafes, multiple parks, water and all the museums... literally 1 minute walk. A beautiful historic, creative and vital city all year round. With our house as the perfect hide-out with it's private garden. Tip: take a boat through the canals to get a wonderful introduction to the old architecture! We got bikes you can lend (please lock it well - your own risk) and a simple car in front of the house you can use for further Holland-exploration.
