Vriendelijke ontvangst. Een heel mooi huis met erg comfortabele inrichting. Wij kregen een hittegolf als bonus, en ook dan is het in huis prima te doen qua temperatuur. Horren voor de slaapkamerramen helpen hier bij. Het huis wordt regelmatig door de eigenaren bewoond en dat is te merken aan de spullen die je in de kasten tegenkomt. Het geeft ook wel iets huiselijks, en voor kinderen is er speelgoed voorhanden, o.a. Een grote trampoline in de tuin. Wij komen nog wel een keer terug!

The perfect little hideaway!

5 of 5
I stayed here recently prior to a business trip in Amsterdam with my partner and we have a fantastic time. 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
