Our home

We offer a great apartment near the center of Amsterdam with three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one with a bath), a large kitchen and three sunny terraces. The kitchen is located on the first floor with a nice terrace. On the second floor we have our cosy living room with a balcony next to it, a bathroom and two bedrooms.The master bedroom is situated on the third floor with another bathroom and a very private terrace.
The kitchen is well occupied, since Isabel is a chef. In the living room we have lots of games, books, tv with Netflix and a Playstation 4. Free WiFi. The terraces are all located on the south, with a great view and lot's of sun.
The lake in front of the house is great for swimming, fishing and during winters for ice skating. The water is very clean and pure. We have our own private garage. On the other side of our island you can go to the beach and enjoy windsurfing and kitesurfing.
We have very friendly neighbors who are always willing to help if you have any questions. Most of them have kids as well as we do. We have two cats.

Who we are

  1. We are Geert and Isabel (both 45) and we have two kids (13 and 15). Geert is a director of documentaries and tv-shows and Isabel has her own Italian traiteur company. Our two sons Daan and Pjotr love playing football, swimming, hockey, going to the movies and they like their Playstation 4 a little bit too much....
    We like traveling a lot and we did exchange homes four times before. Last year we had a wonderful swap with very nice people in the south of Spain.
    We love old cities with lot's of art and culture, and we also like sports, swimming and (quiet) beaches.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our apartment is located on an island (Steiger eiland) near the heart of Amsterdam and is called IJburg. Architects from all over the world come to visit this unique area. Until 10 years ago this part was all water and the islands have been newly created. Now we are surrounded by all kinds of birds, butterflies and flowers. The park on the other side of the lake is ideal for skating, running, cycling and there are three soccer fields. There are two beaches on walking distance which are great (and safe) for smaller kids. We have our own garage for your car. On the other side of the island you can go to the beach and there are several spots for windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Our neighborhood is very peaceful and quiet and yet the center is only 10 minutes away by tram or 15 minutes by bike. You can use our bikes at all times! The famous musea such as the Rijksmuseum and the Ann Frank House as well as the canals are very well to do by bike from our house. On the other hand, the countryside with lovely old villages and old castles are close by.

In the neighborhood you can find all sorts of shops, supermarkets, nice restaurants and great places for surfing and sailing.
