  • Description


    We are a family of 6; two parents who love to travel and who love people, ánd 4 children with ages 6, 9, 10 and 12. Our household and everything connected to it is the project we offer you :-) We live in Hoogeveen, it's in the North-East of The Netherlands, close to the German border. We are a nice family that could get some help with all kinds of "projects" at home and that loves to have guests.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will "infiltrate" in our family life. You will learn all about it, all kinds of cultural aspects. You can learn talking Dutch too! Most of our family members (sisters, parents, etc.) live in the same place, so you will probably meet them too, it's a social family :-)

    First of all: We love to have guests from all around the world (we are longtime members of international hosting sites). Next to that we have a 6 person household, that means we have 4 children. Because of our house full of lovely people we always need extra time besides the 24 hours a day we have hahaha... so many things to do. So, next to the social aspect we like about this, we would like to have some help in our household... Cooking, cleaning, garden work, house maintenance, talking/playing with our kids (we like them to deal with other cultures and that they learn from people from countries).

  • Accommodation


    We have a house in a "small" city (50.000 inhabitants), nearby lots of small villages with lovely nature and good cycling paths. The room at the attic will be yours. It's nice and comfortable!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    When you have time off you can do all kinds of things. The surroundings are flat, the nature is beautiful, especially when you ride a bike (perfect in The Netherlands). From Hoogeveen it's easy to travel to any place in The Netherlands. Good roads, cycle paths, trains, busses, etc. And of course we will help you with planning and arranging stuff!
