Family house near Utrecht, Netherlands

Dear Intervac friends,

We are family of four: Maurice (48), Sacha (48), Jurre (14) and Rens (11). Our first exchange was in the summer of 2013 and we've done a lot of wonderful exchanges so far - we really love traveling this way.

We would love to welcome you to our house: a 130 m2, three bedroom, semi detached 1930's family home in a small town called Bunnik, close to the beautiful historic city Utrecht. We bought our house in 2007 and renovated it. In 2023 the house was extended on the ground floor. We love it here and hope you will too!

The master bedroom and the bedroom of our youngest son (single bed) are on the first floor, together with a spacious bathroom with sink, bath and walk in shower. Our oldest son sleeps in the attic (single bed, with underbed).

Our large garden has lots of space to sit, relax and enjoy the summertime.

About Our Family

Maurice is a geography  teacher in a high school. Sacha works as an environmental specialist.  In 2009 Jurre, our oldest son was born, and in 2012 our youngest son Rens.
We both studied in Utrecht and have lived there for several years. Since 2007 we live in Bunnik. We love it here: it is small and quiet, so our kids can play safely. The shops are close, with all you need for everyday groceries. And Utrecht is only ten minutes away by train, so we go there regularly.
