Expat Rentals in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is a country with a strong economy and a history of trade. Its inhabitants generally speak English very well, and are open to outsiders. No wonder this small country attracts a lot of expats. That means there is a lot of demand for expat rentals. As the demand for housing is high, it is advisable to start making arrangements for your own or your employees business travels in advance.

Furnished versus unfurnished

Most regular Dutch rental homes come unfurnished. That means furniture, non-fixed appliances or amenities such as gas, water and electricity are not included in the rental price. If you’re permanently relocating, that can be a good thing, as you’ll be able to fully customize the house to your own needs. However, the time and cost involved in this process make this impractical for those who plan to stay for a limited period of time.

Another option is a furnished expat rental. This removes the need to shop for furniture and appliances, allowing you to focus on the job at hand. For corporate employees who come to the Netherlands for a short- or longer-term assignment, this can be the perfect solution.

Fully serviced expat rentals

Even if you opt for a fully furnished expat rental, there is still a lot to take care of. You’ll have to find your way around, arrange amenities, adopt new routines and many other things. This can be a hassle. What if this was all taken out of your hands?

Serviced Apartments’ expat rentals are fully serviced apartments. That means they include hotel-like services such as weekly cleaning and linen change, a personal welcome, laundry facilities and high-speed internet. We can also arrange an airport pick-up and assist with car rental or parking. Your expat rental is designed to be a pleasant, modern home-away-from-home.
