House with garden in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Our comfortable family home is just a 20min. bike or tram ride from Amsterdam city centre. There are three bedrooms. One with a queensize bed. One with a single/double bed, and one with another single/double bed. The south facing garden opens onto a park and a small canal which gives access to a nearby lake. Our guests can use our canadian canoe to paddle through some small canals to the nearby lake which has clean swimming water and beach. We also have a small motorboat available. There are excellent public transport connections to city centre. Trams 13, 7 stop a short walking distance from our house. Bus line 369 a short walk from our house connects directly to Schiphol airport.
Shops, park with adventure playground, animal farm, city beach and swimming pool are all within walking distance of the house.
From here the coast can be easily reached by car in about 30 mins. and by bike in just over an hour. There are several bikes available and lots of beautiful bike routes to choose from. Our car, a Volvo V50 is available for our guests.  
Most of you I'm sure are aware of the many attractions Amsterdam has to offer and we feel our bit of "countryside" so close to this beautiful city will give you that bit extra.

We have done eleven exchanges so far and look forward to many more in the future.

Lifestyle

What shall we say? We are easily pleased. We love the quiet life, enjoy nature, as much as we like to visit cities, experience new cultures and meet new people. A possibility to swim at the end of a day out or a day at home, is a real treat.
Through Intervac, we have been alternating summers in Ireland, visiting our family, with warmer holidays in southern Europe. Having said that, we would absolutely love to visit northern Europe as well, but their summerholidays don't seem to match very well with ours...
