Johan's reviewsAs a host (4)
“We spent 10 days in Petroesjka and Johan's lovely house in Utrecht. They live in an enclosed neighbourhood, making it super safe for small children. Petroesjka and Johan did everything they could to make our holiday enjoyable, and we had help and advice from their kind neighbours during our stay. Utrecht is a lovely city and convenient for Hilversum, Arnhem, Amersfoort and lots of other places. We would recommend Johan & Petroesjka as excellent exchange partners.”
“We spent a week in Utrecht at Johan and Petroesjka\'s with our two children. Everything went smoothly. Johan and Petroesjka\'s house is located in a quiet and secure area. It is very comfortable, convenient and full of light. It was very easy to communicate with Johan and Petroesjka who did everything to make us feel at home. Utrecht is a lovely city that we loved to discover. It was a very successful first time in home swapping. Thanks to Johan and Petroesjka for making it possible !”
“The house is located in a quiet neighborhood where everything you need is close by. Gorgeous green corners of canals with water birds, unmistakable Dutch architecture, windmills, more miles of bike paths than cars roads and thousands of bicycles, the historic center of Utrecht and other cities, friendly atmosphere. These are my impressions of this holiday. The owners of the house in our house having to worry about our dogs and cats. All they have mastered perfectly, and the house and the animals left in perfect condition. Every day we were in contact, communication was great. This was our first exchange and we're really excited. Thank you for great time! :-)”
Where is it?
The house is in a quiet street and neighbourhood just next to the centre of Utrecht, an old town in the Netherlands with wonderfull canals and a nice quiet atmosphere. You will find a lot of shops, museums and attractions (such as the world-famous house of the modernistic architect Gerrit Rietveld).
Utrecht is one of the oldest cities in the Netherlands, and one of Lonely Planets 'unsung places'. It really would take too much words to describe it - simply check the tourist info on the web. In addition, we will prepare a booklet with insider tips that could make your stay even more rewarding.
Utrecht is centrally located in NL, and makes a good base for day trips in all directions (Rotterdam, the Delta Works, ...). And if you desperately must visit the village of Amsterdam, it is only 15 minutes away by train .....
