- André Structural engineer (40)

Welcome to Holland and welcome to our home!!
We are a family of four. André, Anoesjka, our daughter Nelle and our son Gijs.
André is a self employed structural engineer, hired by contractors and engineering companies in the Netherlands, mainly designing infrastructural structures like viaducts, bridges, quay walls etcetera both in the Netherlands and abroad. Anoesjka is a lawyer for a semi-goverment institution.
We love to travel the world and we have seen a lot of it over the last 13 years but since we have children our destinations are more limited and we decided now it is time to explore Europe better. However, if you feel your house is an offer which is hard to refuse, feel free to try to surprise us and convince us otherwise!
Although some of our friends and family might think we are crazy for doing this, we hope and expect that exchanging homes with other people will add even more excitement, comfort and fun to our new travels.
We tried to show you our home, our area, our country and the all the things you can do here as good as possible. However if you have any question about any of these subjects feel free to contact us. We will be happy to help you out.
Voor een week (schoolvakanties zuid) of lang weekend
We had a wonderful stay at the house of Anoesjka and Andre. They are very kind people and took good care of our place. The house is very nice and clean and had a good sofa bed for our older children. It's a great place for family's with kids, especially when they love animals. We enjoyed taking care of the cats, pigs and chickens very much. The garden is beautyful and very private. The swimming pool wasn't open during our stay yet but we can imagine that it's a paradise in summertime! O, and the coffee is great! Etten-Leur and Breda are nice city's with everything you need available. We sure this house will not disappoint you!
We spent a great couple of days in the house boat of Jos, Marieke and the children. We totally loved the house, its interior and all water birds flying, swimming and diving around it. Visited the beach of the North sea shore and had a delicious lemon cheese cake at Café Spaarndam, well deserved after the half hour walk it took us to get there. The house was clean and so was ours when we got back after the weekend. It was our first exchange and I'm sure, after this first small taste of home exchanging, we will enjoy many more in the future!
