The bikes are really handy. The area is lovely with a great baker nearby and a cheese shop at the end of the road. It's an easy walk or cycle into town. There's a good restaurant nearby too called Vandesande.

The Apartment was great, right in the centre, within walking distance of virtually everything. A really good base. Comfortable beds and space. It was kind of Sabine and Martin to meet us and to provide the basics that helped as we arrived quite late. Just some advice book a restaurant for the evening as we didn't and we found it difficult to find somewhere on a Friday night.

Technische Ausstattung mehr als genug und üblich. Speziell Küchenausstattung ganz hervorragend. Lage sehr zentral. Stadtzentrum zu Fuß 10-15 Minuten, Strand mit Rad 15 Minuten. Dennoch sehr ruhig, vor allem nachts. Verschließbare Abstellmöglichkeit für Fahrräder und Parkhaus sehr angenehm. Vermieter außerordentlich freundlich und hilfsbereit. Perfekter E-Mailkontakt/perfekte Kommunikation und Wohnungsübergabe. In jeder Hinsicht bedingungslos zu empfehlen.
