Our home

We have a three bedroomed flat in an apartment building that will sleep 4 persons in the historical centre of Gouda. We have 2 front doors: 1 for the outside door which is used by 3 other people and 1 for our own flat. We have a well equipped kitchen in which you can eat and a comfortable sitting room with tv, dvd, video, stereo and computer. The living room, kitchen and wc are on the ground floor which also has a back entrance on to a small yard in which we grow flowers and some other plants.
The bedrooms and the only bathroom are on the first floor so we have a flight of internal stairs. The building is 30 years old.

Who we are

  1. My wife Henny and I (Richard) are in our late 50s with 2 grown up daughters and a grandaughter aged 7. Henny spends a lot of time looking after our grandaughter and I am a teacher of English at the teacher training college in Rotterdam. For years we have thought about exchanging homes but never got round to it. Now we have met someone who has done it 30 times! and has convinced us to have a try.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Gouda is a medieval town of approx. 70,000 people and we live in the historical centre (the part surrounded by a canal). We live directly opposite the Open Air Historical Boat Museum and have a good view of boats entering and leaving the town through the lock. Our flat is 5 minutes' walk from the central market place on which markets are held on Wednesdays (antiques and curiosities), Thursdays and Saturdays (fish, fruit, vegetables, cheese and clothing). Gouda is a very convenient starting point for visiting Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and the west of the country in general. We are 45 kms. from Schiphol Airport and the train service here is good with trains running very frequently and usually on time!
