Our home is situated in the city center of the historic Utrecht. The apartment is placed on the first floor which creates an amazing view of the canal (Singel) that flows alongside the house.
The place is perfect for a couple on a romantic vacation. If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay within the surroundings of the city. You walk to all the bars, shops and restaurants in minutes. You don't need any public transportation. Everything is in walking distance and you can rent a bike at the Central Station (10 minute walk).
We normally live in this apartment, but we travel a lot. We would love for you to stay there while we are away. It's nice for the apartment and for you;)
The space is about 50 m2. Just big enough for two persons or a couple with a young child. Everything you need is there. It's a recently renovated historic house.
We have wifi, a balcony and a woodburner/firestove, dishwasher, espressomachine, bean grinder, oven, blender, toaster, music installation with mini-jack connection and sometimes the beamer will be available for movies. We do not own a TV, but we have a big screen to connect to your own laptop that we can arrange for you. Let us know when you reserve your stay.
We love to host all kinds of people form all cultures, religions and are LGBT friendly. If you like a peaceful place in the middle of the city, this place is perfect for you!
If your plan for your trip is to get drunk and party, this is not the place for you. We hope you find a better suited place.
PRIVATE APARTMENT WITH SHARED HALLWAY (private shower and toilet)
You will have your own front door with a lock on the apartment. You enter the toilet and shower from the hall, you will be the only one using those. The shower is minimalist, but clean and functions perfectly! You share the hallway with a befriended couple that lives in the apartment on the second floor. They only use the hallway to go upstairs. Most guests don't see them during their stay and otherwise have a nice acquaintance with Clement and his girlfriend Daphne.
The living and sleeping room are separated with old wooden ensuite (sliding) doors. There is a queen bed.
We have a fire stove. Let us know beforehand if you want wood to use this. We ask our guest to leave the doors of the stove closed, to keep burning wood from falling on the floor.
We can arrange towels, sheets and organic shampoo and shower gel if needed.
Interaction with guests
We will be out of the country most of the time. But will make sure everything is communicated before we leave. We'll make sure to leave the home welcoming and clean, and expect the same of you. Our family and friends live close by and can help with spontaneous needs and handing over the key when we are not there.

Hi, I am Tessa. I live together with my boyfriend Lauren in the city center of the historic Utrecht. But we love nature and open space, so we travel a lot!
We are both entrepeneurs. Lauren has a vegetarian and organic catering company and I have my own practice for Lifetherapy. We both work at home. Next to working with my clients, I educate therapists at the institute for energetic Lifetherapy: School of Life. I also work with groups of young adults at my own company Generation Intuition.
We use our ground floor as a shared workspace (De Creatie Ruimte) and we rent it out as an Airbnb apartment in weekends and vacation periods.
We love to host for people around the world and to see them enjoying the beautiful city of Utrecht.
We recently ( september 2017) became parents to a beautiful boy named Eliah. We are looking forward to traveling the world with him.
