May be our house is something for you? Our home is close to nature and close to cities like Haarlem and Amsterdam.
Exchanging house has become an addiction. This way you visit many unexpected places. We will take good care of your house and pets if necessary.

We live in a very green area, close to the dunes and the beach and also close to cities like Haarlem and Amsterdam.
Our house has three floors
On the ground floor you will find:
A hallway with a restroom and a small cellar
 
A living with a large dining table, which seats eight people
There is a little fireplace also
In the same room there is a seating area where the digital TV, DvD player, Playstation 2 and Wii resides They are easily controlled by an advanced remote control. And yes we have four controllers for the Wii…
 
Next to that there is a big living kitchen that holds an American fridge, a microwave, a large oven, a dishwasher, a fully automatic coffee machine and a bar to sit on for quick breakfast or during preparation of dinner.
 
On the First floor there is a master bedroom (with TV and a double bed) and two other bedrooms. The bathroom (with bath) is there also.
 
On the second floor there is another set of two bedrooms and the other bathroom with a shower adjacent there is an appliance room with washing machine and clothes dryer.
 
Outside we have:
 
A terrace surrounded by apple trees, a big BBQ and a hammock. And also around the house more places; two other smaller terraces to sit outside, when you are chasing the sun.
A garage which holds 7 bikes (for ages 12 and up). This is also the most convenient way to get around.

About Our Family

We are a family of six; two adults Ellen and Erik and three girls Naomi (20) Daphne (18) Odette (15) and our youngest Raphaël (11).
We like visiting unknown places and cultures. We make the best of everything; it is the company that counts.
Exchanging houses is something we like very much and we are in for almost every destination. Next to that we enjoy the youth exchange; in summer 2013 we welcomed a girl from Rome in our family, summer 2014 a girl from Sevilla and X-mas 2014 a girl from Milaan.
 
Erik works through his own company as program manager on international projects for the banking industry. Ellen teaches chemistry and physics in a school for higher educated children. Naomi plays cello and trains on karate. Daphne plays badminton and likes to listen to music and sing. Odette is our gymnast. Raphael is a scout and he plays the clarinet.

We have a quiet, lovely Bernese Mountain dog and two Siberian Cats. The Cats would like to get some food and water (and some attention probably..) For the dog we ussually arrange another address.
Next to them we have a pond and the fish need a hand of food a day. (cleaning is done automatically)
 
 
 

Lifestyle

We love family life; we like to spend time together. Nice dinners, walking at the beach, playing games etc.
We like nature and like to visit places with history.
Our home is a real home. We used high quality materials throughout the whole house. We also collected some nice art.
So we can say that our home is our castle. It is not a holiday home.
