Our house is situated next to the beautiful Bakkum Dunes, so ideal for everybody who can use some vitamin sea :-)

Oh... and the house is situated less than 15 minutes walk from the train station in Castricum (with fast trains going to Amsterdam every 15 minutes)

The house here is really beautiful, and straight away we felt as if we were 'at home'. For the children it was extra special, there were hundreds of toys and games that they could play with, and they could sleep in the 'airplane bed' (check out the photos!) which was a huge highlight for them. We made good use of the owner's bikes, which he made available to us, and in the surrounding area there are plenty of lovely cycle tours. To the beach it's maybe about a 10 or 15 minute cycle. Bas was an excellent host, extremely helpful, and always available and contactable when we had some questions. I would definitely recommend this house and we hope we can come back again someday! Thanks again, Bas!

Bas' home is amazing! Our two daughters absolutely loved their holiday, as did we. The area is beautiful and serene. Bas was very communicative and helpful throughout. Would love to stay again!

Bas is a perfect host! The house was big, clean, and very "gezellig". We had such a wonderful time there with our 2 years old son that we are already thinking about going back on one of our next holidays :-) The garden is great too and the surroundings are really cool for family activities. We recommend this place 100% :-)

Thank you very much for having us in your house. It was fantastic from the first step into the door until we had to leave again. Everything was as described or even better. My wife said living there was just like coming home. I think this explains how comfortable we felt there. Everybody was very friendly incl. the neighbours in the surrounding. We were travelling with our 2 year old boy and he felt like being in paradise with all the fantastic toys and of course with the trampoline outside in the garden. We did a lot of trips (Amsterdam, Haarlem, Alkmaar are just max 30 min away) with our car or by train which has very good connections directly from Castricum. Also two bikes were available with a child seat so we had the luck to go to the beach several times (10 min by bike). Again thank you very much and we will definitely come back!

We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely house. It has a nice, calm and warm atmosphere and is perfectly located: not far from the dunes and the sea, not too far from the train station and not far from any shops where you can buy things for the daily life. There's a lot to do nearby - and it's perfect if you travel with kids. Our kids loved the playroom and the garden with a huge trampoline! Everything in the house was so well prepared and organised for our stay. Labels in the drawers and cupboard made sure that we really found everything without any problems. Useful information on the area and maps were also provided. The host's hospitality, kindness and openness are impressive! He made us feel home at once. We would have loved to stay longer!

We absolutely loved our stay in Castricum/Bakkum at the "lovely house close to the beach." Bas was a wonderful host; he picked me up from the train station, showed me around the house and left meticulous notes about how to use everything in the house. The house itself is spacious, modern, cozy, and has a really warm, happy vibe. There's great amenities adults -- a huge tub, a boiling-water tap (for tea and cooking), a Nespresso machine and milk steamer, plus very cool appliances -- as well as lots for young kids -- wonderful playroom, slide and trampoline in the backyard. Everything was clean and tidy and beautifully designed (cool built-ins!). There's lots to do in the neighborhood, like walking to the local petting farm, or buying fresh vegetables at roadside stands from local farms, but it's also wonderful to bike out to the beach (about 15 minutes) or take biking routes through the dunes. A perfect mix of country and beach. And there's also a little town about 5 minutes biking from the house; try the all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet. Bas was lovely, available for all questions, and a warm host. We loved it and hope to return soon!
