Description of our house
Our home is a cosy and clean place to stay. Central heated. It is a sunny, 3 storey house, with 2 gardens (east and west), with a terrace and a shed. The street is quiet with a lot of green. Park the car in front of the house. Neighbours are nice and helpful. The livingroom is about 6x4 m. we also eat there, as the kitchen is separate. Kitchen is (almost) fully equipped; sorry no dishwasher. Stairs to first floor. Small bathroom,with shower and handbasin. Two bedrooms, one with a very comfortable, queen-size bed. The second one is for our baby grand-child, but you can put your suitcases there. A 3rd room is used as a computer area. On the 3rd level: nice room with a large 1-person bed.
We have one WC; it is on the ground-floor.
There is wifi throughout the house.

= marks the location of this home
The house is in the middle of the village (27000 inhabitants). On walking-distance is a super market and a small shop mall on 3 minutes by car. Various fine restaurants on the riverside.
You will be excited by historical town of Gouda,only 8 km from us, and well-known for its super tasty cheese and ancient townhouse.
No need to tell you about Amsterdam's famous image, and.. Amsterdam is less than 50 km from Waddinxveen. Rotterdam, the Hague are even closer. Delft, Leiden and Utrecht also have a rich history and are in a circle of 40 km.
Trainstation at 9 minutes walk.
Our bikes are at your disposal (in case of far-away swaps); Netherland is a paradise for you if you like to cycle! We have lots of tourist information in a handy map.
Something about ourselves
We are Hans and Elly ,a retired couple,(1944 and 1948) who love to explore. Used to be a technical sales service manager and a bookkeeper. We have grown –up, married children who live away from home. And 5 sweet grand-children.
We travelled a lot all over Europe, with our caravan. We are very interested in new places; the world is so beautiful! Houseswapping seems to be an ideal way of getting further than Europe. We already had successful exchanges in Spain, South Africa, Florida and Australia.
Hans and I like cycling, swimming, reading, visiting musea and dining out. We are non smokers. We will certainly take great care of your home, and we expect the same of you. We have no pets any more; If you have a cat, or other small pets: they are in good hands with us.
We hope you really enjoy our home and all historic towns Holland has to offer you. Most exciting things are never far away.
We will consider and reply to all contacts.
