House-o-Orange Au Pairs are the best au pairs in Holland!

We are Holland's no. 1 AU PAIR agency and have been at the top of our branche since we started in 2000. We specialize in the placement of au pairs and nannies with excellent English language skills. House o Orange Au Pairs is a preferred partner of the IND (Immigration services) and we are able to help our clients with all of their au pair's visa needs but we do not only provide a visa service. We are an extremely professional and flexible organisation and we are the only Dutch agency that has its own office in South Africa! Quality, reliability and a problem solving attitude have made us the best au pair agency that you are likely to encounter in The Netherlands. Our Dutch office is run by two university students and former au pairs (Annelies Linker and Nastassja Kuscus) and our company is headed by an international host mom who has more than 15 years of au pair experience (Ellen Heesen-Hiemstra). We are founding members of BONAPA, the Dutch branche organisation for au pair associations (www.bonapa.nl). We place hundreds of au pairs and nannies with families all around Holland and Belgium each year. If you are looking for something specific, feel free to contact us. Even though it may not be on our website, we are usually happy to help but please note that due to our new immigration law MoMi, we are busier than ever. If you have already found your own au pair and need help please understand that the process is the same including all costs. WE DO NOT PROVIDE A VISA SERVICE ONLY.
