This accommodation was everything advertised and more! We were greated warmly by our host ( Marga) the first day, who graciously allowed us to store our luggage in the rental as we arrived earlier than expected. She is very knowledgable about places to go, things to do, and we took all her suggestions! Her energy is catching, as she shares her passion about farm life, the rental, and places of interest to visit.
Our first day, we enjoyed beautiful Oudewater, an amazingly beautiful town with wonderful food ,sites, and shops .The butcher and bakery became our favourite! The ready meals were fantastic! We were able to enjoy everything Dutch at the local shops and markets. ( Thanks for the tip, Marga! )
With such a great location, day trips were a breeze. To name a few, Alkmaar, Woerdan,Delft,Zeeland,Overloon,Den Haag, and Belgium( wonderful Ghent) are all a short drive away. Easy access to the highway, but yet so peaceful and serene, this rental was a balm to return to after a busy day sightseeing! We stayed 2 weeks.
The rooms are beautifully decorated, extremely clean,quiet and easily accessible. The spacious main living area allowed for wonderful mealtimes together ( we were a party of 4-6), or a quiet read by the window, with a separate loft escape ( with TV). Enjoyed the great beauty of this amazing farm! The open space, a walking trail, and the cows so close by were a highlight everyday. A special thank you to Dik for sharing his passion of farming with our husbands! Having the opportunity to watch the babies being born, visit the barn, and ask questions ( from farming to war history) was very special!
If you are travelling to Holland, ( sorry, officially now to be called The Netherlands) do yourself a favor and stay at this rental.
Once again, Thank you to Dik,Marga and family for providing a wonderful guest experience!
The Canadian crew are grateful for the memories!
Thank you for the beautiful and comprehensive review of your stay in our holiday home! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay here so much and that all the highlights can be reached easily from our holiday home. We hope to welcome you once again in the future.
We stayed with 8 adults and 4 children ages 10-16. The house was perfect for our group of 12. We very much enjoyed the Dutch landscape (farm and cows), away from the busy cities and yet driving distance to all major attractions. Our host was very nice and helpful.
Thanks for your review and thanks for your stay. I hope to welcome you once again in the future. Many greetings, Marga
Great dairy farm experience in the comfort of this great experience
It became our extended family.
Wonderful house on a working farm with a wonderful host
Fantastic. I would give it 10 stars .
This vacation house was the best ever. Right in the heart of Holland . Close to everything there is to do and see in Holland. Close to many small unique little towns in the area with great restuarants. Real Dutch landscape.The house had all the amenities that you need or want . Also plenty of room in the main family room if you have a large group. We had a family of 9 and everyone had a enough space and room throughout the house as well as in the bedrooms for their own privacy. Our hostess Marga and her family were the best I can't say enough good things about them.. Very accommodating and very personable for anything we asked about.As a working farm this is a unique home and very interesting. As a grandfather visiting the country where I was born and with our children and grandchildren this was our best vacation ever and the best place ever. Thank you Marga and family
I love the house but i hate the smell of the cows &
I loved the house from the inside clean and tidy but the smell in the place is unbearable because of the presence of cows and fertilizer next to the house and the presence of another family above us caused us a lot of inconvenience , and the washing machine away from the house.
