Are you looking for an house to rent? Check our blog for more information!

There is a variety of housing types available:


Renting an entire house  is a wise choice for families and those who want to share a property with friends or colleagues.


Renting an apartment  is probably the best option for those looking for privacy. A self-contained apartment is ideal for professionals or even students but pricing might be an issue.


A lot of students in the Netherlands rent rooms in student houses, which are privately-owned houses designed to host three to six individuals. Living with strangers and following the house rules might be difficult at first, but nearly all adapt over time.


If you are looking for small self-contained space, you should consider a studio . A place to relax, sleep, cook and shower in one. Ideal for young professionals or students and less expensive than an apartment.
