About this listing
A 45 min drive from Amsterdam, our weekend home is in a small bungalow park, spaced on a 550m2 lawn, surrounded by trees, bushes & a (fenced off) creek, overlooking the fields, with a sunset view like a Dutch painting.
Large open & light living room and kitchen (floor heating). Lots of windows and double doors, bringing the outside inside. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, 1 large bathroom, and 2nd toilet.
Recommend for 4 adults / 2 kids.
This house (80m2 - two floors) is our weekend getaway place. We live in Amsterdam with our 2 children. The house is located in a car-free green easy-going recreational park, no concierge controlled gated entrance, easy & free access. The park is located on the big lake (the Markermeer). Entrance to the park is on the dyke where you also find private parking space.
After this parking space, you enter a car-free path that leads to all the houses (take one of the small carts to transport your luggage). Our house is facing a wide open field; looking at fields, horses, cows, etc. There's a creek between the house and the field (guarded by a fence). There are trees and bushes around the lawn which surrounds the house and give privacy. 550m2 ground.
The house itself has an entrance hallway with wardrobe, open stairs to the 1st floor and a ground floor toilet. There is an open kitchen/living room layout with lots of windows and 2 sets of double doors that bring the outside inside. The kitchen is basic, clean and functional, with a small portable oven (which we placed on top of the cabinet, feel free to take this down). No dishwasher.
Upstairs there is a large bathroom with a tub, toilet and sink/vanity. There are 3 bedrooms;
1. A master bedroom with 1 Queen size bed
2. A bed bedroom with 2 single beds and 1 baby bed, and
3. A bedroom with 1 Queen size bed.
All bedrooms and the bathroom have windows to let fresh air inside. There is also a small storage room in which we have extra light bulbs, tools and cleaning supplies etc.
All areas are accessible for the guest.
Interaction with guests
We're nearby and we know people on the park that would be able to help out if there's anything.
You can always call, whatsap or email us! We're a short ride away if you need us. Communication through airbnb is preferred, so we both see the conversation, but whenever you want to call us; never hesitate to do so!
Other things to note
The house is in a quiet bungalow park. People are here to relax and enjoy the quiet surroundings, so its not suitable for people that are looking to party. NO LOUD MUSIC. NO SMOKING. NO ANIMALS.
The house is our 2nd home, our quick holiday, our weekend get away, our breath of air, our playground for the kids, our creative outlet, our pride and joy, our "3rd baby", so please treat the home as you would your own.
PLEASE BE AWARE that this is not a luxurious high-end fancy "hotel". We've been renovating this home ourselves into what it is today, and we spend a lot of time here with our kids.
We provide sheets & towels.
