Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

!! PLEASE NOTE !!
For all of 2019 our Monumental canal-house apartment is only available for a non-simultaneous exchange with Wellington (New Zealand). Please do not contact us for an exchange in 2019 if your house is located in any other country.

Swappers from Wellington are welcome in our Monumental canal-house apartment in 2019, any time of the year. Should you wish to exchange in 2020, please refer to our other listing "Quiet and sunny 60 m2 apartment". We are looking for a 1 week stay in Wellington in November 2020 (dates to be determined).

For the exchange with Sydney (Australia) in October 2020 we only offer our "Quiet and sunny 60 m2 apartment" (see that listing for more details).
--------------------

We live in a 17th century (four stories) house on Keizersgracht, in the oldest part of the canal-belt (Unesco World Heritage). It is a lively and residential neighbourhood. From the house you walk right into the Jordaan with its markets, to the upmarket Haarlemmerstraat shopping street and to Central Station (5 minutes), hub for all public transportation.

We offer our apartment on the first floor. The living room with kitchtenette has a wide view on the canal and covers 75 m2/807 ft2. The so-called "backhouse" (35 m2/377 ft2) has one bedroom (with an electronically adjustable king-size bed), ensuite bathroom and french balconies overlooking the inner gardens.

This is an entirely non-smoking residence, but you can use the patio on the ground floor.

We have no elevator in the house, therefore the apartment is not really suitable for people with mobility challenges.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

The house is located in the oldest part of the 17th century Canal Ring (UNESCO World Heritage), at the more residential Northwest side of the grand canals. During daytime it’s alive and busy with boats, bicycles, pedestrians and the occasional car. In the evening it is a quiet, peaceful and safe residential area. You will be charmed by the magic of the row of lanterns on the facades of the Keizersgracht houses and the illuminated bridges across the canals.
We are just footsteps away from the famous Jordaan district, the trendy Haarlemmerstraat with its wide variety of shops and restaurants, the organic food Noordermarkt (open air market), the Anne Frank House, Dam Square and the Central Railway Station.
