This is essentially a self contained, detached apartment in the garden of a nice house. Super peaceful and quiet, yet walking or cycling distance to shops, bars and quality restaurants. A slightly further cycle is Alkmaar which is also a great place to visit. The accommodation was really well designed, clean and quality fixtures throughout, everything needed for a perfect 'home from home' escape. The owners are really pleasant and leave you to get on with your holiday, yet on hand should help be required. Overall I would certainly recommend this. Ideal to have cycles with you as it serves as an excellent base for touring.. David H, Rossendale, UK
