Nice and cozy house built in 1903, in the centre of Nijmegen. Directly next to our house is a supermarket (Albert Heijn) and a good coffee café (Puux). There is a very nice garden which is quite small but very colourful and cozy. Parking is free.

The space

Our old house (1903) has a living area of approximately 150 m2.

There is a cozy living room that extends into the open kitchen. In the back of the kitchen is a laundry room with washing machine and dryer. Here is also the toilet. Two doors lead from the kitchen to the garden. The kitchen has a dishwasher.

First floor
Upstairs on the first floor is the master bedroom. There is a double bed with very good mattresses (M-line from 2011). The bed is electrically adjustable.

Also on the first floor: a bathroom with bath, separate shower and an extra toilet.
Next to the bathroom is our youngest son's bedroom (he is 7 years old). In his room we build a loft bed. The size is a single bed (90 x 185 cm).

Second floor
An open staircase leads to the second floor. Here is the bedroom of our oldest son (10 years old): there is double bed (140 x 200 cm). There is e television where you can watch DVD's.

We also have two single bed size spare mattresses.

On the second floor there is also my working space, I am working from home as a freelance illustrator.

Our beautiful backyard offers privacy and is situated on the south. The garden has been lovingly maintained and is very cozy and green. It is very sunny, with a sycamore tree to create some shadow when it is too hot. There is also a herb garden and some vegetables like tomatoes and zucchini. Feel free to eat whatever you want.

We have one bike which you can borrow. To the left of our house there is a bike shop where you can rent a cargo bike.

The street where we are living (Groenestraat) is quite busy. In the bedrooms on the frontside of the house you can hear the cars and shopping people come by.

We had a wonderful time in Tjarda and Mark's house and very much appreciated their hospitality and welcome, especially when we were so jet-lagged! Tjarda went out of her way to ensure we had access to cycles, providing a 'welcome' pack of food for us. Even when we locked ourself out of the house she was very accommodating and patient!

Tjarda was a brilliant host, friendly and welcoming. She was really helpful ahead of our arrival and met us at her lovely home to show us around and make sure we settled in! The house is great, comfortable and spacious and the weather was good enough for us to get out in the garden too! It's in a lovely neighbourhood and easy to get to town/the train station and also has a cafe and supermarket right next door. Would recommend to anyone visiting Nijmegen!

We stayed at Tjarda's lovely place last year and returning this time felt like coming home. This is such a cozy place, with plenty of space, toys for kids, and everything you need, including a cafe and supermarket next door. We'd love to come for a third visit some day!

Very precise description: The house is really cozy, and the garden is truly beautiful. We really enjoyed both. Lots of space to sleep and relax in a charming neighborhood. Communication with Tjarda was easy and quick: Every question was - helpfully - answered promptly. We felt welcomed and at home from the very first moment.

We had such a fantastic time here - thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! Everything was nicely prepared and explained and our children loved their rooms. The cute cafe next door was an added bonus.
