Fantastic and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We spent some awesome time in this gem. Lots of room, generous kitchen stuff. We were only 3 persons but would come back with also 5 if not even 6 people and be ok. Cozy is one word, and feeling at home certainly another that comes to mind when thinking back on our stay here. Hope it will be available the next time we visit the Netherlands. Thanks Martin for the help with the key :). Hope to see you soon again.

Lovely house. clean and tidy. As described in the advert. Nice location just outside Alkmaar and only 30mins from Amsterdam. Lots of things for the children to do close by. Will definitely like to go again.

Most Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Having just arrived after a long trip from Australia we were delighted with our accomodation at the bungalow. It was very spacious and comfortable. We loved the location away from noise etc, yet only 5 minutes from shops, restaurants etc. We initially had some difficulyies with the heating system and the TV, but Martin soon showed us how to work them and we were fine after that. Similarly the instuctions for the washing Machine were not in English, but we eventually figured out how to work it. The Bungalow is well siuated to explore northern Holland, and we spent our time well, and still missed a lot of attractions in our 2 weeks there.As well as visiting relatives nearby and my wifes birthplace in Haarlem, we enjoyed Enkhuizen, Edam, Alkmaar itsel, Zaanse schans, and several restaurants in Alkmaar and De Gouden Karper.

Overall the property was as described and as previous reviewers have stated, it is comfortable, not flashy and over the top. It was very clean when we arrived (and hopefully when we left), and martin was most helpful at all stages of preplanning, booking and during our stay.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone .

Wonderful wooden lodge in North Holland

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 nights staying in this lovely wooden lodge. It was very well equipped and was very warm and comfortable and was a 5 minute drive into Alkmaar and also very close to lots of other lovely places (Edam, Volendam). There is a really interesting windmill museum just along the road. We would have hired bikes but we stayed during the coldest Easter for 40 years so with 3 young children decided not to, but it is of course a perfect cycling country. We will be recommending it to friends.

Perfect Family Holiday Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Property was as described, not fancy but very comfortable, and clean. This bungalow has everything a family needs, including a TV, wifi, dishwasher and washing machine. Located a short distance outside of town, yet everything is very accessible. Highways, public transit, shopping etc are all very nearby. The owner was very helpful and responded promptly to all my queries prior to arrival. Owner also arranged bike rentals our whole family.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The property is spacious and ideally situated for visiting some wonderful towns and villages in this area of Holland. Alkmaar is a real suprise, with great architecture, wonderful cafes and the cheesemarket on Fridays is a must for all lovers of cheese,

Volemdam was a recent location for one of the 'Hairy Bikers'cookery shows and is a hidden treasure that is less than 30km away and should not be missed!

Great holiday!
