Excellent Accommodation, host, service and location!

5 of 5
Stayed for two nights in May and was highly impressed. Very clean, well laid out, spacious accommodation. The owner Jean Paul could not have been more helpful. He was there to greet us and to say farewell when we departed. He was happy to provide tourist information also. The location was also excellent, right opposite the entrance to the beautiful Vondel park, close to shops, pubs, cafes and public transport. I would happily recommend this accommodation and look forward to returning on my next trip. A truly wonderful experience! Many thanks, Brian Solihull UK

Wonderful week in Dutch countryside

5 of 5
A great house for a large group. It is well located for exploring the Dutch countryside. The house is comfortable and tastefully furnished with everything you could need. It has lovely views across green farmland and is light and airy. The owners are very helpful and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and would highly recommend the house.
