Once upon a time...
Bright attic by fairytale parc. Owls in winter. Squirls in autumn. Birds in spring. Sun in summer.
Good weather includes...
Free breakfast (always) in green garden. Swinging couch. Making fire. Lazy reading in the attic.
My house fits you like a shoe when...
You love nature, silence, people, surprises, work/passion, each other (lovebirds) and if you enjoy the simple things that make life so rich.
Please read 'Andere dingen om rekening mee te houden met' very well!
My house is often described as 'magical' or ferrytale-like. Mind you, it's NOT a castle (but across the parc is one!) but cosy with lots of colours, character and enough quiet space(s).
An old house, with cats means that there can be spiders, mouses and... cats ín the house. :-)
The attic, where you sleep, is light and bright, but also a bit low and reachable only with small, steep stairs. It's your space, you can have breakfast there or work with your lab top next to the library. You could also meditate there or watch some tv on your laptop.
There is a queen size bed, for professionals, people who need a bit more luxury or have some health restraints. It is my bed, so I have to like you :-)
The location is beautiful, with lots of nature to go 'round - a garden with tall trees and squirls, an owl and meadows nearby.
The location is also practical - enough shops to do your daily groceries. Very near M'tricht, Sittard, Heerlen and the autoroute.
Please do NOT book this place if your legs or your age give you any trouble climbing stairs, especially the smaller stairs to the attic.
Please do NOT book this place if you want 'the Ritz' or a 'castle'. My house is personal, cosy and big as in 'big hearted', as am I.
The entire attic is 'yours', acces to kitchen (with all utilities), shower, garden, (shared) living room (only if I am not around), garage (there is a spare bike).
Interaction with guests
I love my guests - and myself - to be independant and feel at home. I don't expect company and so shouldn't you. But if it so happens there is a click, sharing stories, a nice bonfire and a glass of wine is perfectly fine.
Other things to note
AirBnB is super nice and personal BECAUSE you sleep at somebody's HOME, not in a 5*****star hotel! People who rent out their HOMES (like me) do this as a 'hobby' (my pleasure), I do my utmost to please you.
Please, remember this and be BRAVE, OPEN and HONOST about how you feel and experience your stay. Tell me DURING your stay if you are disappointed about something or need something.
I prefer given a chance for improvement and learning, not to get a bad review afterwards. Please feel safe to share your experience with me, I appreciate this BIG TIME.

Handle the house and each other with care and respect. No other pets, no friends visiting unless you are staying for a month and want to receive company. No loud noises past 22.30 hrs. Don't leave your stuff wandering around the shared spaces. If you want to cook here, no problem. If you are arriving late, no problem, I would then just like to know that beforehand.
Namasté, ik heet Nicole Pol. Mensen omschrijven mij doorgaans als open, enthousiast, energiek, vrolijk, warm, authentiek, communicatief. Ik ben een mensenmens, en hou zowel van gezelschap als van stilte en natuur. Creatief, spiritueel en geïnteresseerd in kunst en cultuur. Wat je bij mij, op verzoek en tegen een kleine vergoeding, kan meepakken: meditatie, stilte en een verdiepend gesprek. Ook al ben je ver van huis, bij mij kun je een beetje meer thuiskomen in jezelf.
