what a fantastic beach-house

5 of 5
we have been at this house for three weeks and enjoyed every second of our stay. Direct beach location within the nature reserve brings a unique mix. Nature observation directly from the house coupled with all the amenities offered by the very well-equipped and tastefully furnished and large house. Endless beaches to explore are just a foot step away. Groceries and restaurants are about 10 min by car. Within a radius of one hour by car you can reach a number of unique nature gems such as De Mond and De Hoop nature reserves. A must for the nature lover to visit. Of course there is a multitude of more things to do in the region, best have a look yourself! If you are looking for a tranquil place to "refill your soul fuel" this is your "station" to do so! It never felt that hard to leave a holiday home at the end of the holiday.... . We hope to be able to come back soon! Thank you Riegert & family for sharing this magnificent location with us. Matthias & Karina, Germany
