This area is easily accessible from the house, either by bike, on foot or using the traditional small boat that's available for rent at your holiday home.

Wow. This rental was a dream. It was the last of 3 rentals we had while touring The Netherlands for 2 weeks and by far the most spacious and serene of them all. The photos are exactly what you see when you get to Logement De Blauwe Sluis--an entire house, decorated with high-end, yet comfortable furnishings in the tranquil setting of a farm and river.
We were a family of 6 and had plenty of room: enough bedrooms, baths and dining & living areas. The first floor has so many windows so the house is always flooded with light and you really feel a part of the surrounding countryside. We ate here every night and having a full kitchen was really convenient. (No microwave, but we managed just fine.) Our kids loved being able to run around outside on the large lawn and driveway. The horses in the pasture next to the house were very friendly. And having a full washer/dryer was so handy! The house was spotless and the owner was so nice, always answering any question we had very quickly.
We stayed here while attending the Redhead Days festival in Breda over a 3-day weekend. One of the days was very rainy and windy so we decided to skip the festival and just relax at the Blauwe Sluis--it was THAT relaxing! It's also an quick drive to Roosendaal where there's plenty of shopping, dining & outlets. From Roosendaal we caught the train to Breda for a day trip which was very convenient. It was really special to leave the city after a day of touring and come back to our pastoral retreat. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
(The only downside---which really isn't important at all---was being unable to download photos; just not enough bandwidth this far out in the country....but if you're trying to "get away" it's not really necessary!)
We used the property as a base to explore the surrounding area, including Amsterdam, The Hague, Gouda, the Kroller-Muller museum in Otterlo, and the windmills in Kinderdijk. We also took advantage of the free use of the two very well maintained bikes that came with the house. And we enjoyed the conveniences offered by the quaint village of Steenbergen, about 5 minutes away by car.
The house was largely as pictured. The main living area on the ground floor, the bedroom with its own bathroom on the ground floor, and the bedroom with its own sink on the first floor all seemed bigger than the pictures. The small bedrooms on the first floor seemed smaller than the pictures, but were adequate for sleeping and had a sitting area in the hallway outside.
We especially enjoyed learning about life in the area from Jolisa -- she was a most helpful and informative host.
Prachtig vakantie verblijf waar aan alles gedacht is bij de inrichting. Het is niet voorgekomen dat we iets nodig hadden en het er niet was. Supercompleet. Keukeninrichting iets nodig het is er. Wandel/fietskaarten je hoeft niet naar een vvv-kantoor het is er. Mooie Flatscreen TV met surround systeem, heerlijk meubilair, zowel binnen als buiten. Prachtig aangelegde tuin met bbq, vuurkorf en een prachtige aanleg/vis steiger aan het water, waar je heerlijk kunt vissen en waar ook nog genoeg te vangen is. Vooral dikke brasem groter dan 45 cm en groter is eerder regel als uitzondering. Er is een sloep die gehuurd kan worden, er staan 2 fietsen in de garage die men kan gebruiken.
Onze vakantie is dubbel en dik geslaagd, echt een top verblijf.

Wij, 5 broers, hebben er een longweekend doorgebracht en het ontzettend naar onze zin gehad ! Wij zijn erg gastvrij ontvangen , er ontbrak ons niets ! Het is ook goed vertoeven in de omgeving, wij zijn in Willemstad geweest ,erg leuk! Bootje huren is aan te bevelen!
Het huis is een aanrader!!
Het was een fantastische midweek. We hebben veel gefietst en we hadden prachtig weer .
Met 8 vrienden tijdens het Pinksterweekend in Logement De Blauwe Sluis verbleven. We gaan al 14 jaar naar verschillende accommodaties met het Pinksterweekend, maar deze accommodatie staat toch absoluut op nummer 1!! Fantastische accommodatie, prachtige ligging en een alleraardigste gastvrouw. Een absolute aanrader
