Our home

Our beautiful houseboat called 'Lindelij' is situated in the centre of Leiden, a historic university town only 20 kilometers from Amsterdam. The houseboat is designed by an architect and newly build in 2002. The interior is modern design and very comfortable.

We have a large livingroom with an oakwood floor, design furniture and design lamps, a large antique Norwegian woodstove, many (Dutch and English) books on shelves. The houseboat has a splitlevel.

On the topfloor we have a well equiped open kitchen where you can sit at a long oak table of 2 meters long. The livingroom as well as the kitchen have a stunning view on the water, as the windows are from ceiling to floor. On the other side of the river you will see a quiet green park with large old trees and daffodils in spring. Ducks and swans swim by over the river.

On the lower level we have 2 bedrooms and a luxury bathroom (bath, separate shower, toilet and washbasin). The masterbedroom has a good comfortable bed (1.80 width and 2.00 length) with 2 new mattresses. It is nice and quiet to sleep here. The houseboat has a separate extra toilet. We have central heating throughout the houseboat.

We have a flatscreen tv, fast internet, hifi stereo.

On the waterside we have a new large terrace with flowerpots where you can sit outside in the sun. In front of the houseboat we have a little garden and a shed with our bikes which you can borrow.

As for children, we are very sorry that our houseboat, surrounded by water, is not suited for children. So we intend not to exchange with families with children.

Living on our Lindelij really feels like being on holiday in your own home :-)
Please come and see it for yourself!

Who we are

  1. We are two persons, Mijndert and Hilleke, both in our fifties. We are very experienced with home exchanges, more than 15 times (USA, France, Italy, Spain, UK, Germany, the Netherlands) and we love traveling which we do a lot. Since we have started with home exchange we became very enthousiastic about this way of traveling / spending our holidays. We always take very good care of the homes we are staying in!

    We are very flexible with dates for an exchange and are not dependent on schoolholidays. Surprise us! We are open for many countries, in town as well as in the countryside, for one week as well as 3 weeks. Even for a long weekend if it is not to far to drive (the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Germany).

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Leiden is a beautifull historical town with the oldest university of the Netherlands. Leiden is also called 'small Amsterdam' because of the many canals and bridges. Our houseboat is situated in the centre of Leiden, close to all the places worth visiting. On foot or bike you will be there in 5 to 10 minutes.

You will find many restaurants (very good ones as well as cozy cheaper studentlike places). Leiden has a large number of musea, historic monuments and churches, nice shops and galeries, twice a week a market wellknown in the region: to much to mention.

As the houseboat is situated opposite a green quiet park you will have a feeling of being in a natural green, wide open space in stead of being in the middle of this nice historic town. If you might have a car, you'll have parking in front of the houseboat on the other side of the road.
