If you are staying in Utrecht Region for a short period, short-stay housing can be ideal. As most residences in the Netherlands are rented out for a minimum of one year, they are often not an option. You could stay at a hotel; however, costs can soar. Another possibility is Airbnb. Short stay involves someone renting out a home on a regular basis for a period from seven nights to six months. Short-stay accommodation can be perfect for expats living, working or studying in the region. It’s also a good option if you are looking for a permanent home: you have a base and gain insight into what it’s like to live like a local.
