Hi! We are Bob (28), Anne (30) and Lune (2).
After travelling, workawaying and playing house concerts together for 2,5 years we decided to settle down in our home country The Netherlands and finally be hosts ourselves!
Bob is a singer and voice actor and works mostly from home. He'd love to meet other musicians and especially crazy voice people. He has a small home studio and if you like you can learn or record together.
Anne was born to be a mom and now also has her own company making coats, bags and accessories from woolen blankets.
Lune is just as we ordered her. She is the best of both of us. Just a shame she has her mom's character and her dad's eating habits :D She loves music, playing outside, dancing, and Rémi, the boy next door. She'll take care of you and show you around (her toys). DISCLAIMER: she's not for sale.
We are building a tiny house, which we will move into soon. We'll also keep renting the "main house" to use as our music studio, sewing atelier, wood workshop and B&B.
In our house, there are guitars, a piano, a fretless bass, ukeleles and a bunch of other instruments to use.
Our garden is 8000 square meters, with a big vegetable garden, tons of flowers (thank you Anne), 2 horses (not ours), and a sandbox (ask Lune permission before playing in it).
We'll supply you with all meals, and will eat together for lunch and dinner. We have breakfast at 7ish. Depending on your rhythm we can have breakfast together or separately.
We eat mostly vegetarian.
We do occasionally drink alcohol during dinner, but we don't drink a lot and would appreciate the same from you. We don't do drugs and ask you won't either during your stay. This is extra important to us because of Lune, so please confirm this in your message to us.
Until we get references as hosts: the last picture below contains our references we got as Workawayers.
Please write us a personal message :) If you send us a standard message you send to everyone we will probably not host you.
To confirm you read everything please start your message with the funniest joke or quote you know.

We have a big garden and house with a lot of small and big DIY projects and maintenance. We require help with those projects, or with looking after and playing with our 2 year old, so we are free to do the other projects ourselves.
Some stuff we'll ask you to do by yourself. Other stuff we'll do together.
If you'd like to cook us a meal every now and then that would be great!
-Make a stone path leading up to the house
-Refurbish the upstairs part of the house

Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
We can teach/converse in Dutch or English. We always like to learn at least a few words of your language. And if you like you can speak to our daughter in your own language.
Your own room in the house, or a big tent (see pics)
Our garden borders the forest of the "Utrechtse Heuvelrug". We also live a 5 min walk from the river "De Rijn". And a 5 min walk from a small nature reserve with deer, horses and (wild) cows. There's beautiful nature all around.
There's a bus station 200m from the house. A supermarket at 1km.
Nice cities within an hour of travel: Ede, Wageningen, Utrecht, Amersfoort.
We'll supply you with a public transport pass. (You'll have to charge it yourself.)
We also have bikes you can borrow.

We have a decent wifi connection (20 Mbits). I do most of my work (voice-acting and music) from home myself. There are enough (private) spaces with wifi you can work at.
We have a big garden, and enough space for you to park your campervan.
