About our home


Our home is situated in the residential, yet very central Amsterdam Area called "Oud West". Very close to the touristy area's like the Jordaan, Leidseplein and hotspots like the Food Hallen and the famous Vondelpark.

The house has an open plan ground floor containing the living area, dining table and fully equipped kitchen. It has a direct access to the spacious garden patio and the wide stairs offer an easy access to the tow bedrooms. The children's bedroom is ideal for a young child up to 5 years of age. The larger bedroom is for two adults.

Laura lived on the ground floor before meeting Emiel in 2012. Emiel moved in in 2013 and while Laura was pregnant with Aimée in 2015, Emiel bought the house on the first floor. Two years later in 2017 we connected the two apartments to form one and stripped and completely renovated both floors and extended the ground floor to create the large, spacious and comfortable home we live in today.

We created a separate guest room (in the front of the house on the first floor) which we rent out to tourists while we're home, and when using Love Home Swap it's also possible that it's rented out. However, you will most definitely not be bothered, as these guests have a separate and private entrance to this room and their own bathroom.

There are two very low maintenance cats that need (minimal) taking care of. We hope you don't mind their presence..

More about us

  1. We are a couple in our mid-30's with a 5 year old daughter called Aimée and a baby boy called Faber.

  2. We have two low maintenance cats and pet rats that need (minimal) taking care of during your stay in our main home. If you are staying in our guestroom, we will be home and you will have no nteraction with cats whatsoever! ;)

  3. We love blending modern and vintage interior design, which you'll find our home to reflect. Furthermore we enjoy exploring Amsterdam with our kids and hosting small get-togethers in our home.
