Wonderful, Comfortable and Welcoming Introduction to Holland
I am a Dutch born Oma, from Canada introducing 4 grandchildren, ages, 14, 11, and 7 year old twins to the Dutch way of life for three weeks and luckily discovered the home at Egmond aan Zee. From the beginning Henk was in touch with me and answered all my questions about the house and location. A most welcoming and gracious landlord indeed. The house was clean, comfortable with adequate supplies of linen, dishes, pots and pans, and appliances.
The house and the location were just the perfect fit for the family, and when taking our day trips, and making our way back, we always said we are going home. The beach is 26 km of splendour, and the village services were excellent, with a great grocery store, wonderful bakery, nut shop, the great pizza restaurant with the delicious gelato with slagroom, that we visited most evenings, numerous restaurants, and interesting shops Public transit brought us to all the locations that we visited, including Alkmaar, Bergen, Amsterdam, and DeHaag. We always looked forward to the Wednesday Market that came to town.
Our memories of Holland and Egmond Aan Zee will be imprinted for all of us for years to come. Henk will always be remembered with a special fondness for providing us with a wonderful home, kindness,
and showing us what Dutch hospitality is all about.
