We are a family of five: Boris, Nelleke, our daughter Sam (4), our son Faas (3) and our baby boy Tycho. We love the creative buzz of the city life and enjoy culture & art, but we like being out in the country side just as much. We had a great home-exchange experience last summer and are hoping for many more to come.
We spent two wonderful weeks in Holysloot The house of Boris and Nelleke is very nice. This is a typical farmhouse of the region they have renovated with taste. The house is very spacious, well equipped and perfectly suitable for children including a swing, a lot of toys inside and slide. The small garden is really nice, we had very good evenings in the tranquility of the warm days to walk. We loved the location of the house which is located in the waterland in a beautiful little village, very close to Amsterdam and at the same time near a bike (which we were kindly lent by Boris and Nelleke) of pretty outports Monnikendam and Edam, our favorite. Boris and Nelleke gave us a lot of information in our email exchanges and the little guide made with their favorite places was very useful and interesting (tips car to go to Amsterdam, the tea house for Sunday brunch , small restaurants Jordaan district ...) On our return, we found a very tidy and very clean home with gifts for us and our children. Thank you again for your welcome, Nelleke and Boris. This was our first exchange with you and it went so well that we have been comforted in our desire to exchange.
