12-30 July 2013: apartment in the Netherlands for a place in Europe
Posted January 17th, 2013 - 8:52 pm by from Rotterdam, Netherlands (Permalink)
Hi,

I'd like to try a house exchange this summer. I'm travelling with my two children (son, 8 years old and daughter 6 years old). I don't know where I want to go (yet), but I'm hoping somewhere in Europe.

I'm just looking for a nice place to go! So if we're welcome as surfers, exchangers or housesitters, it doesn't really matter to me, as long as everyone is happy about it!

I live in an 3-bedroom apartment in Rotterdam, near the city centre and near public transport. Rotterdam is one of the biggest cities in the Netherlands and it's known for its modern architecture. From Rotterdam it's only an hour by train/car to Amsterdam, Antwerpen... half an hour to the beach.

My house is a modern apartment, I just moved in a year ago. Three bedrooms, but altogether seven people can sleep here!. It's not allowed to smoke in my house.

I don't have pets and I'm allergic to cats and dogs. I don't mind sitting a cat, but please don't bring them to my house...

I'm a teacher and I have a lot of time to travel. My summer holiday is from July 12 to August 31. I'm trying to plan a holiday starting around 12 July, but other dates are possible too.

So, if you're interested in visiting my city or if you'd like to welcome us as guests, just let me know!!!

Portugal, that's really nice!! Wow, I'd love that. I'll think about it, I'll have to figure out how to get there (fly and rent a car?). So I'll find some information on the internet and: let's stay in touch! Thanks, Joao.

Ah, don't get too enthralled, there's also Greece!!! We have a 2 bedroom apt with a 190+ degree sea view, just steps from the locals' beach. We're looking for long time (2 months plus or minus) sharing for July August of this year.

Hi Joao,
I'm sorry, but flying to Portugal is too expensive for me and driving is too far. I'm going on a camping trip to France... Thanks anyway, maybe when I've got some more money to spend!

Interested in two weeks on the seaside of Greece?? We have a two bedroom apt down the hill from Delphi, right on the coast, and want to get away for the summer. See pics on our profile.

Hi Terry,

Yes, I am interested, I already looked at your profile, but I'm not sure if it's a realistic option. It's 900 euro just flying to Greece with my kids... or any other place I would go by plane. It might be possible, but I just don't know
yet. I'll have to think about it.

Anyway, you're welcome in my house if you would like to visit the Netherlands?!

Hi, just to let you know, we are giving the time in our house to a friend who will be able to be here all summer.

But we would love to visit the NL on our trip around the EU. I'll keep in touch and thank you.

Hi Miriam, sounds good, I love Italy! I already planned a camping holiday with the kids, but I might like to visit Milan when I travel alone? I'll send you a message later, let's stay in touch.
