About our home

Looking for houses to swap in Sydney or more North in May 2020!

Our house is perfect for a family with kids. We have three kids from 1, 3 and 4.
The house is situated in Hilversum; 25 minutes away (or 30 km) from the city life of Amsterdam, surrounded by nature. It has 5 bedrooms, a spacious livingroom and a nice garden. The city centre of Hilversum 15 minutes away if you'd like to walk, and 5 minutes away by bike or car. The forest and a nature reserve are just around the corner and there are various playgrounds nearby.
Several supermarkets and other shops are on walking distance. A great Cross-Fit gym is next door, so keep fit!!
We are open for a car swap.


More about us

  1. We are family with 3 young children (4, 2 and 1 years old). We love to travel and let our kids meet the world. We lived in South Africa for a few years and now we are based in Hilversum, just close enough to enjoy the buzz of Amsterdam and just far enough to be in a green and beautiful environment.

  2. We (Pascal and Laura) both work and want to go away with the kids for a few months in 2020 to explore Australia.

  3. We have a house, for families with children (you can use all the toys, beds, prams etc) but we can also put the children-things away and make it nice for people without kids ;-)

Where is it?


It's a very green neighbourhood with a lot of families with parents that work in Amsterdam. The train goes every 10-15 minutes to Amsterdam and it takes about 20 minutes to get there.
The forest and meadows are at a 2 minute walk from our house. A little restaurant in the nature reserve is close by and they serve the best coffee of Hilversum (ask for coffee 'Josephine')!
Hilversum itself is a very nice city to do shopping. Easy to go to by bike, car or walking.

Our house but also a lot of neighbours have a lot of tulips that grow in spring, typical Dutch :-)
