About our home

Our home itself, is the upper part of a 1900-City-home. On ground-level, there lives our neighbour; we own the 2nd and 3rd level. Everything topped with a roof terrace. On the backyard, there is a closed small city garden, where it is very quiet, so you forget you are at the middle of the 2nd city of the Netherlands!
Right now, my husband and I and our two sons (7 & 8 years) are living here in our house


More about us

  1. We are a family with two grown-up children sons (9 & 10 yrs), we live in Rotterdam for more than 20 years. Heleen works at the university as management assistant; Rogier works at the largest telecom provider in sales and marketing.
    We live to spend our times in Rotterdam .. but we also love to travel as a family! Since we have kids, we travelled between Italy, Sweden and Indonesia each year, except during the Covid19-crisis.
    We did some exchanges with another Homeexchange-website and friends from friends. That is the reason we've entered this community.
    Let's swap!

Where is it?


Our home is located in the most vibrant part of Rotterdam (the West), close to the main city center and surrounded by lots of cafes, restaurants (from almost every part of the world), small and big shops. Also some large city parks (Heemraadsingel, Het Park), playing grounds, Central Station etc is at reach.
On walking distance you can find the international parts of Rotterdam: China town, the tropical shops, mediterrean shops and restaurants. And of.. no-nonsense Rotterdam-style cafes, shops, restaurants.
We offer two adult bikes and 2 children bikes. On your bike, you can reach the whole of Rotterdam (Markthal, Central Station, all parks, Erasmusbrug). And for cycling daytrips, you can cycle to e.g. Delft (15km). Amsterdam is only 30 min by fast-train; the beach of Scheveningen/Hoek van Holland only 45 min by train.
Rotterdam is also well known for great city-running routes. Everything in town, you can be easily reached by walking, cycling or by tram/bus/metro.
We do have an extensive kitchen, but if you prefer, to have dinner, breakfast and/or lunch in a different place every day, thanks to the loads of bars and cafes, this is possible!
