“We had a lovely swap with Matthijs and Marianne. They have a great and comfortable home with a beautiful garden. We were in good contact with them before and during the swap. Most of the things you can expect are visible on the photos. Worth mentioning is how clean and tidy their home (and garden!) is. They have a minimalistic living style, which is great for swapping. Another thing we love is the location. Close to all you need plus a skatepark nearby. Don't hesitate if they reach out to you for a swap. You will love it. ”
Matthijs and Marianne's reviewsAs a host (11)
“Wij hebben een heerlijk verblijf gehad in het prachtige en schone huis van Matthijs en Marianne. Je kunt in het ruime huis heerlijk een vakantie doorbrengen terwijl Goes een prima stadje is om te verblijven. Op een steenworp afstand zit je aan de prachtige Zeeuwse kust waar de zon altijd schijnt! Het huis van Marianne en Matthijs is een heerlijke plek om het juiste vakantiegevoel te krijgen en nooit meer los te laten! Jullie gastvrijheid in het mooie Zeeland zullen we niet snel vergeten!”
“We had a great time staying in this house. Everything you need is there and it was very clean. Toys for the children and bicycles also available. All the beaches and highlights in \'Zeeland\' can be traveled from this house. We thank this family for this great time we had. Also we found our house exactly as it was when we left. clean and with a nice present. During our stay we had some good contacts over SMS. All and all we would love to exchange again wit this family!”
“we had a great stay in the lovely, comfortable home of Marianne and Matthijs. Their home is in a suburb of the great, little town of Goes with lots of space and a gorgeous garden, its a perfect place to stay for families and couples alike. Thank you so much for making us so welcome in our first ever exchange. Vicky and Ian”
“At a twenty minutes drive from some of the most beautiful and tranquil beaches available in the Netherlands, Marianne's house in Goes is a really nice place to stay in the summer. The house is comfortable, stylish, well maintained, and it is situated in a quiet neighborhood at the edge of town. There are excellent bicycles for two adults and some more for various sized children. With lots of things to do in the area, we have enjoyed every day of our stay. Marianne and her family took great care of our house, garden and animals, and we're looking back at a very successful exchange!”
“We had a brilliant exchange with the Geelhoed family in Goes. Communication right from the start was excellent and everything went very smoothly indeed. We loved their house too. It was absolutely immaculate and we felt really at home and comfortable there. Zeeland is a beautiful part of the Netherlands. We loved exploring the towns and the beaches are wonderful. We really hope to come back to this area again now that we have discovered it. Thank you to Marianne, Matthijs, Rubén and David for allowing us to make such lovely memories (and for looking after our house too!)”
“The Province Zeeland & the lovely city Goes pleasantly surprised us in many ways. First of all the house of Marianne and Matthijs is really tidy, modern and comfy. The modern heating / cooling system made the inside feel as you were inside a cave. Cool without the dry, noisy downside of regular airco systems. Since we had a heat wave during our swap, we almost felt bad for Marianne and her family for our house lacking a cooling system. We enjoyed feeding the Koi in the ponds and harvesting home grown vegetables in the garden. Although a TV set was provided, specially for us, we did not touch it and instead played the piano or read a book. It was our first holiday in Zeeland and the people we met were very friendly and laid back. Being used to the high parking cost in most of our country we were surprised to see that most parking areas near beaches were free of charge. From the house to the nearest beach is just over a 10 minute car ride. There is a lot of variety between the many beaches and other recreational places for swimming. We have visited the famous Delta Works which protect Zeeland against the rising Sea levels. All in all we had a great time and will definitely visit Zeeland again. Dear Marianne, Matthijs, Ruben and David, many thanks for the lovely home swap! ” ”
“We have had an excellent swap with this family. The house was immaculately clean and they left our house probably even cleaner than we left it for them! Very good standard of English which made correspondence easy. House well placed to see this interesting area of Holland. Friendly neighbours who helped us out quite a bit and made us feel very welcome in Holland. I would have no hesitation in recommending this house for a swap.”
“It has been a great pleasure to visit the province Zeeland and the very nice, clean and stylist home of Marianne and Matthjis. We have enjoyed the beatiful beaches, the cosy atmospere in the villages and cycling on the very good bike lanes. Besides that we have had a pleasant daytrip to Amsterdam by train. We can highly recommend a house swap with this very nice family. Marianne had printed out many cycling routes and arranged train tickets for us. Our house was left spotlessly clean, and our rabbits had been cared for. Thank you for making this house swap with us.”
“We had a great holiday at the home of Marianne. The house is very stylish, super clean, organized and neat. Goes is a lovely town and a good place to explore the beautiful Zeeland. We enjoyed the beaches, the quiet and typical Zeeland towns such as Veere. Our house was very neat and clean returning home. We are grateful that we could spend our holidays at the home of these family in Goes.”
“The first week of May 2013 we exchanged with this lovely family. We didn't meet each other but had good contact through email and telephone. The house of Marianne and Matthijs was comfortable, clean, shiny and friendly. Our children had a lot of fun in their garden. The nearest shops were only a couple of minutes away by bike, the city center 10 minutes. Goes and its surroundings are beautiful and ideal for cycling. We asked if there was a baby bed available for our youngest son, it was no problem, they organized one for us. After the week we found our house neat and tidy. Thanks to Marianne and Matthijs, also for the bolussen!”
Where is it?
We live central in the province Zeeland. A very popular province by tourists because of all the water (activities) and beaches. Most tourists are from Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Our province is very rural, we have no cities, but a few lovely historic towns. Our area is great for cyclists too. We have perfect cycle pahts and routes everywhere!
Within 30 minutes by car all the great sandy beaches are reachable. A great province to stay for both couples and families.
If you want to see more of the Netherlands, the train station is only 1,3 km walking distance from our home. Amsterdam is 2 hours by car or 2,5 hours by train. Rotterdam less than 1,5 hours by car, and less than 2 hours by train. Antwerp, Ghent, Bruges and Brussels 1 - 1,5 hours by car.
We leave a lot of information about trips and things to do during your stay as well as cycle maps.
Please check the recommendations we've got!
