Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We have agreed on an exchange for this summer 2024!
Please note that we have a large house, we can sleep up to 12 people, but... we do have a large family and though their ages range from 17 to 26 they still, most of the times, like to join us for the holiday. So please offers only that will accomodate 8 people.

Lovely historic townhouse in the heart of Holland, with many of the authentic features on our doorstep to be enjoyed. Beautiful high ceilings, light airy rooms and colourful interior, with a modern twist. Most rooms have been redecorated recently.
Utrecht is a beautiful and compact city, many sights are within walking or cycling distance. You can have a great time visiting up to ten museums, well suited for both children and adults. There is the Dom church and tower,a beautiful gothic cathedral. Climbing the tower (over a 100 metres!) gives a magnificent view over Utrecht. We have the Museum van Speelklok tot Pierement, showing wonderful tiny music boxes and awe-inspiring enormous music-hall organs. The Catharijne-convent shows religious art and is nominated for best European museum. You can take a look underground the Domsquare, Domunder, also a prizewinning sight. Our exchange families so far have very much enjoyed the house, our canoe and our rowing boat, they loved Utrecht and the Netherlands. We cannot promise you great weather but a very warm welcome awaits you.
We are looking for an exchange with people who are ok with us taking our two well trained dogs or are willing to take care of our two lovely dogs , they are both wonderful and superfriendly. We also have two friendly outdoor guinea pigs.
We have 6 bikes. Utrecht is also close to wonderful nature, fields, forests or lakes. Within 70 minutes you can be by the seaside.
We would love to hear from you, I am rooting for a lovely UK or Danish exchange, make me happy... but a lovely French exchange would be nice too, surprise us. Not too far we always travel by car, as transport for a family of eight can be quite costly.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We are always very careful with other people's homes and expect our exchangers to be so too. We will leave our home lovely clean and tidy and would like it returned in the same way. No smoking allowed. We will leave toiletpaper and cleaning products for you to use, no need to replace them. And (unless you let us know you do not want us to) we will leave some groceries so you don't have to go to the supermarket on arrival.
