Our home

Our house was built in 2004. It is a very cosy house and we love spending time here as a family or having a barbeque with friends on the outside veranda. It has beautiful views of the mountains from all the bedrooms. The house is surrounded by a beautiful well-maintained garden. It has a parameter wall with a security system and is very private. All the bedrooms and bathrooms which are situated on the top floor are carpeted. The living area, dining room and kitchen forms one big open space on the ground floor. It flows out onto the balcony, veranda and garden. There is also a big family room above the double garage which can be used as a bedroom//lounge and study - there is a computer with internet. The washing room is located in the basement, with an indoor and outside washing line.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four, my husband Karel (43) is a structural engineer with his own engineering firm. My name is Hester (43) and I'm a staying at home mom for Jessica (7)and Karl (3). We love travelling and spending time at home. I put a lot of time into the house and garden and feel very proud of it. For that reason I would ask any family that we exchange with to take good care of our house and our belongings. Needless to say I would treat your house with the same respect and care. We are non-smoking and feel very strong against anybody smoking in the house. Our cat (Kinnie) is very friendly and independant and does her own thing. For the most part she can be left alone, however a top-up of pellets and water is required once a week. We have done a home exchange with a family in Zurich and it was a great success. Our children are very well behaved and we take them everywhere with us, no problem.
