1-storey house in Zandvoort, Netherlands

  We've made arrangements for summer 2019, but we're still interested in an exchange for 2020.
We have a beautiful and large home, overlooking the sea. Near the dunes and not far from the village. We are two retired teachers with three grown-up children, who live on their own and six grandchildren, When our children were young we swapped houses some ten times and a couple of years ago we took it up again and made several successful exchanges since then.
There is a large and cozy living room with big windows overlooking the sea (and an entrance to a quiet secluded 'inner-garden'), as well as a dining room and a large kitchen (with dishwasher) overlooking the sea. The first floor has a vide with a wide view of the sea and the village. Here we have our second living room with television. On the second floor, there is also the master bedroom, two hobby rooms, and a bathroom with bath and shower. We have two flights of stairs in the house, one with a lift to the second floor. The house is therefore suitable for handicapped persons.
A large and quiet garden surrounds the house. We have our own driveway, so bring your own car, no problem! Just cross the street and you will be on the beach. The dunes are only a couple of minutes away. Zandvoort is a seaside resort with a small center, but convenient public transport to visit all the historic towns. Enjoying culture is never far away: Amsterdam by train is only half an hour and the beautiful historic city of Haarlem only 15 minutes. Walking and cycling are beautiful here.
We have a very friendly cat, who'd love to have people who will care for him.
We're very interested in an exchange with England, Ireland or Scotland for the summer.
Our house, though a spacious one, is not suitable for children. We'd love to go to Great Britain, but Germany will be nice too! As Ted, my husband, has trouble walking we'd very much appreciate a house with parking place and not an apartment or flat.
