Who we are

  1. We are Koert(1953) and Christa(1958) Koert is a retired international businessman. Christa is a retired government employee. She used to work within social services. We have 4 children, 2 sons in law, 2 daughters in law and 6 grandkids, 2 cats, 1 rooster and 9 chickens. You don't need to take care of them, but they would love it though.

    We have a lady cleaning our house every week. Make it yourself comfortable and let her do the same when you are there.

    We have done quite a few of very successful home-exchanges in Australia, New Zealand, Belgium and in the U.S.A. and are experienced travellers. We will take care of your home as if it was ours.

    We like to travel, surprise us.

  2. We love nature and like to explore new areas where we have never been before.

Your neighbourhood

Famous biking area with a lot of small villages around. Noordwijk - the village in which we live - has just over 260 inhabitants and is only a 20 min. drive from the city of Groningen, 10 min. from Drachten and 30 minutes from Leeuwarden the 2018 cultural capital of Europe. Great places to explore, great for shopping, sightseeing, visiting museums, etc. Amsterdam is just 1,5 hours away. The German border is a 40 minute ride. Bremen Germany is 2 hours away. Located close to the province of Friesland and Drenthe. Close to the woods and great possibilities for sailing and swimming or skating in and around the lakes of Friesland. Relaxing environment, super safe and quiet. We own a nice Yamaha piano. Please feel free to play it when you can. In Church we have a historical pipe organ built in 1872. Also open to play. Groningen province contains most pipe organs in the world!! Our community center is open every Saturday late afternoon early evening for socializing if you want. We have two E-bikes available. Please feel free to use them. We own a SUV. We can discuss the possibility that we trade our car as well.
