Modern house (2021) with private pool

Hello,
We are Wilma and Peter (born in 1952) We are Platinum members so you'll understand that we have had many exchanges! We really love this way of holidays. To us it is the very best way to visit a country.

In 2021 we moved from our old house (built in 1905) tot a newly built one (2021). The house is an energy neutral house: very well isolated end therefore very comfortable in winter and cool in summer. All energy is electric (generated by 48 solar panels and 3 solar collectors for the water heater, all on the roof). It is situated in a quiet neighbourhood of our town GOES but still it is only a few steps away from the city centre. That is mainly because Goes is just a little town of about 24.000 inhabitants. Goes is a popular city because it is situated in the centre of the region. Goes is easily accessible by train and from the railwaystation it is a 10 min walk to our house. Also the big cities Rotterdam, Den Haag and Amsterdam you can easy by a direct train from Goes. By car it is only 45 minutes to Antwerp and to Brussels it takes 80 minutes.

Our house has all convenience, for example:kitchen with micro wave, oven, fridge, dish washer; a technical room with washing machine and wash dryer; a living/dining room with smart TV (Netflix , a hifi-set. All over the house wifi

We have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, but for an exchange we offer you just one room with a big bathroom. Our bedroom has a good bed 160 x 210 .

In front of the house we have a garden with a biological swimming pool (10 x 3,5 mtr; deep 1,5 mtr) that can be used. If you really want to go to the country side it takes you only 10 minutes by bike. For a swim in natural salt water it is 15 minutes by bike.

Wilma is a retired lawyer and Peter is a retired music procucer. We have three adult daughters and we are grandparents of six lovely grandchildren. But our children never join us on our holidays, except in winter during our skiing tours.

About Our Family

Since 2018 we are both retired and that gives us the opportunity to do exchanges whenever we like. e.g. We are not tied to school holidays.
