Our house is comfortable and modern. We have very friendly and helpfull neighbours.
There are 3 bedrooms in total: one with king bed, one with two single beds and a working/baby room
We have a nice quiet garden with a sunny terrace and BBQ.
At least 2 bicycles (ebikes) are available to do as the Dutch (Houten was cycling city of 2009 and 2017) You can use our Car and there is free parking.
Computers and Wifi are available for your use, as well as lots of English books.
Houten is situated 6 miles/ 10 km from Utrecht city which has everything Amsterdam has to offer only on a smaller (nicer?)scale (wonderful canals, shops, delightful restaurants, interesting museums etc.)
Amsterdam, no explanation needed, is only 40 minutes by car or train.
Very near to restaurants of all kinds, shopping centers and walking distance to train station.

More about us

  1. We, Marjolein (55) and Kees (63), have three grown-up children who left the house to live on their own.
    That gives us the opportunity to swap houses for the holidays. They wouldn't hear of it when they still lived with us :-)
    Marjolein works for the Dutch kidney patients association and Kees is a civil engineer.
    Although we already did some traveling, we would like to see some more of the globe. Swapping houses gives us the opportunity to live among the people of the country we visit instead of an impersonal hotel.
    So far we had two exchanges(in Australia and Florida) which were a very nice experience indeed.
