About our home

Beautiful monumental house in a nice neighbourhood. Close to parks, shops and restaurants; close to bus stop. Our house is build in 1898 and an official historic building with all new equipments inside. It is newly restored by a famous organic architect The first floor has a large living room, a dining room and a fully equipped kitchen, toilet and a terrace with large bbq. The garden has water, a dining table, outside shower and a garden house and a ping pong table. The garden is a large city garden

The second floor has three sleeping rooms - only 1 or 2 for your use during this summer , a beautiful bathroom with bath and shower, 2 toilets and a terrace. The master sleeping room has a walk-in closet and walk-in bathroom. The views are very nice. At the back terrace you can relax - you know you are close to the city center but it feels as if you are in a forest and by night it is quiet and peaceful.

The sleeping rooms at the front of the house have views on a private park. We prefer this summer to host only 2 people, but if needed a third or fourth can sleep in the front room. Normally in the front bedroom is 1 bed but a second bed can be placed. At the moment we have 1 cat. Someone will take care of the cat. The two floors are about 200 square meters each. If you are looking for other dates then indicated - please ask because we have more availability then indicated.

On the third floor we can give you access to a second bathroom. This year we prefer you do not use this bathroom. This is a private bathroom for your use only. This floor is occupied and they have their own separate bathroom. This year the third floor is not for your use. We also have a basement. You can use the washing machine and dryer- those are in the basement.

We did several exchanges and all people were satisfied. We can upload more text and more pictures. Please notice that depending on the swap, we ask a cleaning fee of €60,- expecting that you keep the house tidy and clean. If you are leaving early in the morning, or you cannot clean yourself - please let us know. We will take care of the cleaning but in that case we charge more.
