Hi there! from the centre of Amsterdam, The Netherlands
We are a family of 5, Anne and Maarten and our three girls of 9, 7 and 6. This summer (2015) we had our first exchange which was a great success and we're very enthousiastic about the exchange concept. We love our house in the center of Amsterdam which gives us the chance to visit museums, restaurants, anything happening in a big city, while at the same time, living on a quiet canal enjoying a very small village feeling in the "Nieuwmarket Neigbourhood" In our daily life we're busy with work, but relax during the weekends by swimming and hiking. The beach is our favourite location to spend our free time at. The girls love drawing, biking, swimming and playing outside.
Of course we will treat your place with the respect that we expect to receive from you while in our place. We're looking forward to a new exchange adventure!
Swimming, reading and enjoying the culture of new places is something that we try to find during our free time. Last year we enjoyed canyoning, canoeing and tree-climbing with our three daughters as well as visiting small villages and local markets.
We exchanged with Anne and Maarten this summer for about 10 days. We had a great time in their lovely home in Amsterdam. Their home is located in a great place being only a few minutes walk from everything and yet the street is quiet with lovely view onto the canal. We have 4 kids aged between 8 and 16 and they really enjoyed visiting the attractions (especially the Nemo science center). We especially loved the cycling around the city (even the small ones were able for it). In fact we did not have to purchase any bus or tram tickets as we either walked or cycled all the time. We did purchase the Museum cards which get you into everything free for one year. Their house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Anne and Maarten made it easy to organise everything and they also treated our house extremely well. We would recommend and exchange at their house for sure! Joe, Cecile and the kids.
