Perfect

5 of 5
The bungalow was well appointed and equipped for four although there were just the two of us. It had a spacious yet private feel within the park, which was close to the areas we love....the lake, the woods and the coast. It was also convenient for food shopping and a train ride into Amsterdam. The owner was a joy to deal with and very helpful, accommodating our disjointed arrival and the replacement of an old DVD player with a brand new Sony model very promptly. This was wonderful for us as we wished to share some subtitled movies together as a special part of our week together. Thank you! I can highly recommend this property to others looking for a quiet break outside school holidays. Also, the facilities available within the park and the local surroundings, should make it an excellent place for a family holiday venue.
