Who: Sanket (32) and Ayushi (30)
Home: Cornelis Paradise in Eindhoven
Sanket was quickly convinced when he discovered this apartment at Cornelis Paradise in Eindhoven. From India, he moved here for work three years ago. "The company I was working for had some housing options for the first months here in the Netherlands. After a couple of months, I found this rental apartment online and decided to move here." His wife Ayushi followed him from India after three months. "Now, we're living here already for two years."
Entering Sanket and Ayushi’s apartment, your eyes are immediately drawn to the piano and closet filled with memories they’ve collected during their three years living in the Netherlands.
Daily life at Cornelis Paradise
One of the best things about living at Cornelis Paradise is its location. "It's a great combination of city life and countryside life," Ayushi explains. From Cornelis Paradise, it takes you only a couple of minutes to enter the buzzing streets of Eindhoven. Adjacent to a city park, dozens of people gather here to enjoy the calming atmosphere or to picnic on sunny days. "As I'm working from home four days a week, I enjoy walking through the park downstairs during breaks or after work."
"Cornelis Paradise truly is a paradise to live"
Ayushi and Sanket rent their apartment fully furnished, meaning they've got everything they need from the moment they started renting here. Think of the big furniture, but also little things such as pans, cutlery, and appliances like a coffee machine and kettle. The bed and couch are highly appreciated by both. "I prefer to stay in bed all day," Ayushi laughs with a little sarcasm. Sanket adds: "And when she's confiscated the bed, I claim the couch as mine." They customized their interior by adding extra furniture and some decoration, like a stand-up desk and piano.
Situated at the northeast of the building, Sanket and Ayushi enjoy views of Eindhoven's skyline and the city park below them. Sanket has a soft spot for his piano, from where he has beautiful views.
Living on the 9th floor, the views are – to say the least – incredible. The floor-to-ceiling windows are just as wide as the living room, letting in much natural light – even on dark, rainy days. By sliding these windows open, you instantly enjoy a fresh morning breeze or the last sunrays during sunset. “From up here, you can see the seasons changing. In fall, all trees become orange." Especially Ayushi is still amazed by the view. “Laying on the couch at night and looking at the stars gives me the best feeling."
Living in Eindhoven
Known as the technology region, Eindhoven and its surroundings are popular with those working for a better future. Besides Sanket and Ayushi's apartment, Cornelis Paradise has 156 other rental studios, apartments, and penthouses. Another 30 different nationalities from all over the world live here, creating a diverse community of people.
Why it's a popular city? “There’s a lot to do in Eindhoven, like cultural things, festivities, and music festivals," Ayushi explains. Sanket adds: “We both join some sports clubs, like roller skating at Area51 in Strijp-S and rowing at Kanaaldijk. At my rowing club, they even adjusted their communication to English as more and more internationals are interested. Although we’ve got some friends living in this neighborhood, it’s an easy way to meet others, which is nice – especially when you work from home."
