Who we are

  1. Gonnie (mother) and Frank (father) are about fifty years old. Frank works as manager at an university (Social Work), Gonnie is urban planner.
    Our oldest daugther studies at the university and lives in Nijmegen; Max (18), Jolene (16) and Bob (13) are nice children with a lot of imagination. They spent a lot of time with the computer (internet, Playstation, X-box) and hockey.
    Mom and dad are busy with their jobs and the children, when we have time we like to read, play tennis, walk, drinking beer and wine with friends, doing nothing.

    A small dog and a cat (both very friendly) also live with us, we can give them another house during vacation, but perhaps you don't mind to take care of them. Of course we are willing to take care of your pets.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

From our house it's 10 minutes walk to the central station (and then a hour to Amsterdam, it takes the same time to go by car)and 15 minutes walk to the center of the centre of Zwolle with nice restaurants etc., about 30 minutes to the countryside.
Zwolle counts 100.000 inhabitants, many monumental houses along the historical canals and is situated in a beautiful riverlandscape, where you can go kilometers by bike (we've got them) or by car on the dikes. We have nice maps. About twenty kilometer to the south is "de Veluwe", a big old forest, with in the middle a large museum, specialized in modern art. There are many possibilities for water sports (25 km: lakes: IJsselmeer, Veluwemeer, and lakes in the northern part of Holland: Friesland). The eastpart of Holland is famous because of the picturesque villages. In Emmen and in Arnhem are zoo's, one is especial interesting because the animals live in a very natural environment, the other (Arnhem) knows a big tropic forest, desert and an aquarium, you walk inbetween the fishes. Further there are several theme parks.
