More about us

  1. We are a couple in their 50-60s and love travelling.
    Anke is a retired psychologist who loves gardening and is volunteering in the work with refugiees; Patrick owns a company in sustainable development and is a zen teacher.

    We like travelling and learning about other cultures in a low budget way. Have been living in Belgium, Norway and in the United States. We are used to exchange houses and love it because of the unique locations, the friendly people we meet and the sustainability of the concept.

  2. We would like to leave our 2 cats in the house, and hope you will enjoy taking care for them. Our house is in a quiet part of the city, just outside of the city center, so an excellent place in covid-times.

  3. We have a flower and vegetable garden just outside town, at 10 min by bike, with garden house and greenhouse, and you are welkome to harvest and enjoy the outdoors there.

Where is it?


Utrecht is situated in the middle of Holland, so it is the perfect place to stay if you want to get an impression of the country. All railway lines meet here; all corners of Holland are easy accessable from here within 2 hours. Because of the situation and the good public transport system in Holland, no car is needed. By car however, you can leave the city within 5 minutes.
Our house is located in the very popular, yet quiet, neighbourhood Wittevrouwen. The modern Griftpark is a nice place for a workout or to hang out and have a picknick in summer, at 3 minutes walk. Lots of playgrounds.
The medieval city centre is at 15 min walking distance, with the Dom Tower, canals, museums, and many markets and shops. Lots of restaurants are located both in the neighbourhood and in the city centre. A supermarket is around the corner.
Closer than 10 km are: forests, lakes, green pastures, fortresses, castle, good walking and biking opportunities. Whithin half an hour to an hour by train or car are the interesting cities of Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague. The bus takes 5 minutes from our neighbourhood to the central station.
