The Space

My apartment is situated in the lively quarter Kralingen, 2.9 km East from the center and on the border of the big central park and lake of Rotterdam, called Kralingse Plas.

You will have a private room, with a 2p-bed plus a couch that converts into a 2p-bed. For bigger groups the couch in the living also converts into a 2p-bed. Use of the living, kitchen, separate shower and toilet, balcony washing machine, pc, internet, piano, etc. are all included. Mi casa es tu casa!

Kralingen has a funny mix of multiculti, rich and students. You can take a walk in the park, find a nice place to eat or fetch your stuff from the local Albert Heyn supermarket. In the basement we have 3 spare bikes to discover the rest of the city.

1) Train Station Rotterdam Alexander > Metro A/B/C to Schiedam Centrum, stop Gerdesiaweg (13 min) > walk (10 min)
2) Train Station Rotterdam Centraal > Tram 7 to Erasmus Universiteit, stop Vlietlaan (13 min) > walk (5 min)
3) Car Parking:
Carpark in front of the house is free only the weekend and evenings. The free parkinglot in the park takes 7 minutes walking.

  • Geert is a very kindly and warmly host, he introduced us Rotterdam and Holland. The rooms were quite comfortable and clean.Our journey is more colorful because of staying at Geert's house.

  • Stayed here for almost a week with the 6 of us traveling exchange students and it was a great experience! Felt a little bit of home away from home. Clean, cute apartment with everything you need to cook with in the kitchen. Geert and Rosie were especially helpful, welcoming and very easy to get along with. Our stay here was absolutely ideal and we enjoyed everyday of it. Would without a doubt recommend Geert and Rosie as hosts!!

  • Rosie and Geert are great hosts who made us feel very welcome to the apartment and Rotterdam:) We enjoyed our time at their apartment near Kralingse Plas, which is a beautiful lake to walk around especially during some lovely autumn days which we were lucky enough to experience.

    The apartment is adequately fitted out for cooking your own meals, washing clothes etc and the living room is spacious enough for a few people. We stayed in the larger room which backs on to the primary school. The area is very quiet at night so the children arriving in the morning act as a good alarm clock;)

    Rosie and Geert are great to talk to and happy to share information on things to do, or advice on Rotterdam/Netherlands in general. We would happily stay there again.

  • Geert and Maria Rosaria are hospitable and generous people who like to share - share their time, their space, their stuff, their knowledge. The apartment is spacious and sunny, the bedroom too. Don't be turned off by the dingy entrance to the building - behind Geert's door is an oasis of comfort and light. The location is wonderful, with the fantastic Kralingse park just steps away. The downtown core is just 10 minutes away by bike, generously supplied with the room. I would definitely come back.

  • Wir wurden freundlich und offen empfangen. Die Wohnung ist großzügig, sauber und ruhig. Sie liegt in angenehmer Umgebung. Ein humorvolles Gästebuch gibt wichtige Informationen. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.

  • Exelente, no tengo mas calificativos para el trato recibido y la hospitalidad de Geert y de Rossy. Ellos han hecho un gran esfuerzo para entendernos y en Español, Italiano, Ingles y Holandés, lo hemos conseguido.

We are a Dutch/Italian couple: Geert studied physics, works in the field of the energy transition and loves the outdoor life. Maria Rosaria came over to NL about a year ago, studied liguistic mediation between Italian, English and Arabic and is crazy about music.
