About our home


Our home has a living room with opening doors to the backyard, small but well-equiped kitchen and a toilet downstairs. The 1st floor has 3 bedrooms and a bathroom with shower, bathtub and bidet. The bedrooms (bunk beds in 2 rooms, crib in one room) come with toys for boys/girls aged between 2-6. The master bedroom on the top floor includes a practical office space. The whole house is very light. In the sunny backyard you will find a sandbox and a shed filled with outdoor toys (scooters, tricycles, bikes, a pool, balls etc.). The front yard has little bench and a 'bike-garage' with a cargo bike for transporting up to 3 kids at the same time. Our Volvo station wagon will be at your disposal, depending on the location of our house swap. Frontdoor parking.
