Looking for home exchange near The Hague, the Netherlands

 
Hello Intervac friends!
We are a family of 4: Albert-Jan, Charlotte, Jasper (10 years) and Caroline (8 years) and we live in a 2-storey family house (ground floor plus 2 stories) in a quiet, residential neighbourhood in the Hague area (Leidschendam). In our house you will find toys and games for children, a television set and internet access (ADSL). Approximately 50 metres from our house there is a canal (the Vliet) where you can sail in summer and ice skate in winter. Overlooking the canal you have a beautiful view on an old Dutch wind mill.  
Within walking distance from our house there are some small shops (bakery, supermarket, butcher) as well as several playgrounds. Close by (10 minutes by bike and 5 minutes by car) there is a large shopping mall with supermarkets (open until 22:00 hour), all kinds of shops and restaurants. In Leidschendam there is also a swimming pool. 
The Hague is a town surrounded by forests, dunes and the sea. The city centre can easily be reached by public transport. There is a bus stop at the end of our street and within 15 minutes you are downtown. The Hague has cinemas, theatres, shops, restaurants, interesting museums (for example Mauritshuis, Municipal Museum, and for children Madurodam and Museon). In Leiden (15 minutes by car) and other surrounding towns, there are many other museums for children as well as (indoor) playgrounds. 
There are several nice places to visit on the beach. All these places are a 15-20 minutes drive from our home: Kijkduin is fun with small children, Wassenaar has an outstanding natural beauty (specially for a hike through the dunes) and Scheveningen is a nice vibrant place throughout the year with restaurants and casinos. We also like the beach in autumn and winter when a nice wind blows through your hair. 
From our home you can make trips by bike in the country side: you can cycle along the canal, through pastures and in the dunes. We have 3 bikes for adults of which two bikes have children’s safety seats for small childeren at the rear of the bike. We also have two bikes for children. 
From Leidschendam it is easy to make trips to the other major cities in the Netherlands: Amsterdam (50 km), Rotterdam (25 km) and Utrecht (55 km). These cities can be easily reached both by car and by train. Amsterdam has many beautiful museums (Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank huis) and other interesting places. 

We like to welcome you in our house and we will be happy to answer all your questions about sight seeing in the Netherlands.
