            Esmee and Peter when required were excellent hosts and very helpful with tourist advice regarding the local area.We would have no hesitation what so ever in recommending their property to anyone seeking to rent a home in the Volendam/Edam area. The house was well furnished and the bathroom was exceptionally spacious.
