We need some practical advice on The Netherlands please.
We live in London and son (aged 24) is at a London university taking a computer degree. He has secured a job for this 3rd "placement" year.
The placement is from August 2018 to July 2019 with a company whose address is
south west of main Amsterdam, at Beechavenue 182, 1119 PX Schiphol-Rijk.
The advice we need is about accommodation.
We have been to just about every accommodation website possible but without success. We are wary of scams and don't know who to trust. We are asking if anyone has any contacts in The Netherlands who could offer accommodation or perhaps has experience of someone in The Netherlands who could help us (? estate agent dealing in this kind of rental).
All he needs is a basic, simple flat/room with an internet connection (and the usual
kitchen/bedroom etc). Nothing posh so it could be shared. Perhaps with
students or a room shared/lodging with a Dutch family. He won't be driving, only using public transport.
The issue is we don't know how to find anything suitable and we feel totally at
sea. We have Googled, of course, but find it all very confusing.
Does anyone here have any experience of flat/ room renting The
Netherlands (or even further out) and could give us some real practical advice?
It would be much appreciated by this desperate poster. Time is very short now.
If you would prefer to PM me for my direct phone number/email, and oher personal details to discuss this, please do so.
