Warm welcome from beautiful Amsterdam!
We are a lovely family with 3 children (2 girls, 1 boy) living in the beautiful old centre of Amsterdam. After hearing so many enthusiastic stories from our friends about house exchanging, we are very curious to try this ourselves. We like to travel in our holidays to discover new places. During winter we love to go skiing and in summer we prefer nice, warm places! Our house is situated in the centre of Amsterdam, within 5 minutes walking distance from all the beautiful museums Amsterdam has to offer (Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum with Rembrand's Night watch etc). The famous canals are within 10 minutes walk. From Amsterdam you can easily travel in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe. In february 2014 we would like to make an exchange to go skiing in Austria, Swiss, Italy or France.
July 12 — August 6, 2016
We are looking for a home exchange for 3 -4 weeks in the summer 2016, either Croatia or Ibiza.
We loved our stay in Amsterdam, the house is wonderfull (difficult to decribed it, worthy of a magazine of décoration ) it is very well located ( close to museum, in the center and very near the Vondelpark), Karien And Peter organized everything for a nice stay. Thank you very much Karien for your hospitality. As you'll see in the picture we love bicycling as dutch.
We had a great time in Tours 3 weeks ago. The house is situated very well in the city and is really convenient. Tours is a really nice city, with beautiful things to see. Yaelle and David were very helpful making our stay very comfortable and nice. We biked around the city, visited the beautiful castles of the Loire vallee, visited the wonderful zoo and of course had great food and wines! Also the children had a great time. Really a nice house exchange!
We spent a wonderful time in Amsterdam. The city is beautiful and very interesting, and it offers to you lots of different things to have some unforgettable days. Although the best thing was Karien and Pieter’s house, it is so pretty, comfortable, well-equipated and very well-situated in the centre of Amsterdam with a beautiful garden. It is also amazingly decorated, with huge windows, lot of space and plenty of light. It is close to the Vondelpark’s park where we used to go running in the mornings, and where you can find a fantastic atmosphere to practice some sports or to go there with the children. Karien and Pieter have been wonderful hosts preparing a complete guide with useful information to visit the city and to go to the best restaurants, museums, and interesting places. They are a lovely family and I wouldn’t find any best house to spend my vacations.
This was our first home exchange and happen so close to each other, from Zandvoort to Amsterdam is 20 minutes away by car. Personally, we did not make this up, but Karien did to us the request and we were pleasantly surprised. Karien and Peter are very welcoming and their amazing house is nicely situated close to the famous Vondelpark. A surprising experience is sometimes closer than you think.
