The space

snug & intimate: highly ceiled small apartment with open fire place, art deco furniture in living, 2 beds/mattresses alongside or separate in bedstead style, veranda kitchen, shower/wc, washing mach, dish washer, and backyard terrace in wide open garden... idyllic relax for max 1-2 pax or couple with infant... neatly trained dogs allowed

feel warmly invited: living next door, my hospitality might include scholarly instruction in secular buddhism/mindfulness, guiding you around or pick you up - bring to schiphol airport... from this green oasis in the dunes you can pick & choose what, where, when to enjoy or just shrug off your business day in silence...

bentveld, only (21km from amsterdam, is on a stone's throw distance from the culturally rich town of haarlem (new york's harlem is named after it; schiphol-haarlem: 12km) & leiden (22km), next to the affluent villages heemstede, overveen & close to the beaches of zandvoort & bloemendaal... there is quite nearby a golf course, a car racing circuit, a casino... canal cruises in the cities mentioned

a 6m walk to the bus stop you could as from the station take the train to those places, to any other place like flowery keukenhof... or you could go bicycling to... like a chic sauna or a health club or you could walk to the neighboring kennemerland national park...

if you like wining and dining outdoors, you might want walking to an exquisite indonesian restaurant, a big sushi restaurant, a french/dutch gourmet restaurant... in fact nearby you could go from michelin starred restaurants to convivial pubs for a healthy meal or just a bite...

coffee, tea, sugar, oil and cooking utensils will be there... i speak dutch, english, german, french, and indonesian, and can understand what you wish in spanish or italian... looking forward to warmly welcome you with a toast to your stay in a temporary, neat, unique dwelling point:

at your service!

Me and my son stayed at Maurit's place for 5 nights to go surfing throughout the day. The apartment was ideal for two being away most if the time. Small but cosy, clean and in a very quiet neighborhood. As we are vegans we wanted to prep our dinner ourselves - the kitchen was sufficiently equipped, has an oven and a good 4-flame stove. I would not want to stay whole days within the apartment as there isnt a lot to do, but if you are active it is a great place and just 5mins by car from the beach.

The studio is situated in a lovely area, the neighbourhoud is silent, Sandvoort and Haarlem are both easy to reach by car, but: The both the studio and the whole house to which it is attached to are not really looked after. After we had spent our first day there we were informed that the property will be set on sale and that possible buyers will come to have a look at the place. The studio was tidy when we arrived, but unfortunately not clean. There were cobwebs on the cieling in the kitchen, the floor war not clean (the zebra carpet showed in the picture for example war really dirty ...) there was dust all over the place. The owner has been very friendly thoughout our email communication. We didn't really get to meet him though as he was away at the time we visited. We got the keys handed over by another person, who was neither particularly friendly nor could answer any of our questions. The studio is smaller than it looks in the pictures and has an auful lots of decorative stuff and pictures everywehere. There is lots of stuff for breakfast und preparing meals in the kitchen, shame though that the kitchen was so dirty, that we didn't really feel inspired using it. The garden is very spacious but unfortunately not looked after at all.

The apartment is nice and clean. It is located in the countryside but it is also really comfortable to reach Amsterdam or the sea (Heemstede train station is just 10 minutes by bike). Maurits is a nice person and helpful with everything I needed. Definitely recommended!

Mr kwee, was a good host, he invited me twice to spend some time in his private house and he is really friendly i really enjoined my time in his place. Everything about the house was great, its really a nice place to stay if your looking for a calm and peaceful place. not to far from the sea. mr.Kwee was on leave when I checked in the house, so I did not see him till after a week, and the person who was supposed to do the cleaning for the house did not do a good job. but this issue I cant blame it on the host himself.
