Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Nice family home (136 m2, semi-detached), built in 1929, centrally situated in the small town of Bennekom. The house has a spacious garden (430m2) with a lot of privacy. A trampoline and swing for the children are also there. Small town charm in a green area, while very close to major highways; 50 to 60 minutes by car to Amsterdam, a central train station is close by at 3km. A large and nice outdoor public swimming pool and play garden is located within 2km's of our house.

As the photos will show you, the entire house is always nice, tidy and clean but simple and basic in some places. It is not a perfect 'living magazine' style house (yet?). We live here since 2013 and some parts of the house will be renovated later, it is not perfect and might be rough in the finer details. The photos show you the house in all honesty as it is right now. The garden is actually more spacious than shown on these pictures..

Besides being a nice place to stay and live, perhaps one of the nicest things of this house is it's location and how easy it is reached: It is situated in a quiet, nice small and green village, with a lot of facilities nearby like a outdoor swimming pool (1.5km), forest (350m), and lots of things to do for families. But besides that it is also situated very close to (walking/biking distance (3km)) from intercity central train station Ede-Wageningen. From there is a DIRECT connection (no need to change trains) to ALL of the following destinations: Amsterdam central station (50min), Amsterdam Schiphol Airport (50 min), Utrecht (20 min), Arnhem (15 min), Amersfoort (40 min) etc. A bus also stops at the end of the street (600 meters) which brings you directly to and from that station (7 minutes), although you can easily park your car or bike there. If you use a car, the major highways A12, A30 are a mere 3 km away, which brings you from our house to Amsterdam by car within the hour.

We can provide one or two cars if that is preferred. And of course, in The Netherlands many things can be done by bike and biking infrastructure is very good. We will provide bikes for you and your family (adult and/or children's bikes) if that is preferred.

6 beds; 2 bunkbeds, 1 double bed, 1 childrensbed ( length 1,50m). Not in the pictures, but the small wooden garden house (4th picture) offers a basic extra accommodation for two adults: A bunk bed, wooden floor, simple chair and table, etc. Tidy and clean, very basic in nature but finely suited for the summer, offering two extra beds.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

There is so much to see and do nearby. Some nice things to do are already in the photos and in the links down here are some nice suggestions. We will provide our guests with a to-do list.

Our house is located on the edge of the “Veluwe” Area, the place where the Dutch themselves go to for their holidays, and if you are looking for the large well-known cities like Amsterdam or Den Haag, they are also very good reachable in less than an hour by train.

Our house is perfectly located to explore really the best parts of The Netherlands: traveling to the west, you will find all the well-known and large Dutch cities and activities easy reachable within an hour by car or train, while on the East and North-East you will find the greenest and most nature-filled part of the country ; the largest Dutch national Park "The Hoge Veluwe" can be found within a few km's with all its activities and touristic visitor centers or quietness if you prefer that. Biking, walking, hiking can all be done directly from our home.

In The Netherlands a lot of things can be done by bike. We will provide you with the bikes you need if you prefer!
