Excellent and exciting

5 of 5
A tremendous experience. A house like fairy tales. quiet. green. And here ... calm. Very comfortable. Bedrooms with en suite bathroom and shower. Kitchen with all tools and appliances. Location - Io better. Single note - frequent and unstructured Internet disconnections. In conclusion, we want to return to this place. We hope that in the not too distant future.

Die richtige Wahl!

Ein wunderbares Zuhause "auf Zeit": Augen, Geist und Seele erholen sich vor dem weiten Himmel im Waterland vom aufregend-anstrengenden Tag im sehenswürdigen Amsterdam. Nach ein paar Tagen möchte man eigentlich nur noch hierbleiben... Hiermit bestätigen wir alle vorausgegangenen positiven Bewertungen und bedanken uns herzlich bei unseren netten Gastgebern! Bernd und Gesine S., Hannover
