We were welcomed very friendly and shown the whole house. It looked very much like on the pictures. The rooms were big enough, only big wardrobes were missing, there only were some small ones, none to hang the clothes. The kitchen with the gas cooker and also the Barbecue outside were great, but a real oven was missing. Only a microwave with grill function, which was not enough to make a Pizza for 10 persons. It also was to small to bake rolls in the morning. The bathroom upstairs was big and clean, the one downstairs could have been more comfortable, e.g. it could have been tiled, like normal bathrooms are. The neighbourhood was quit but Shops were reachable within 5 minutes by car. Big supermarkets where we were able to buy everything. 40 Minute drive to Amsterdam and to the beach, great opportunities for free time! All in all we had a great stay, the house is perfect for Groups!

The house looks in reality very much like in the pictures. It is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The house is very big with lots of space for kids to play in. It is located in a beautiful rural area just about 35 minutes drive from Amsterdam. We really enjoyed staying there and surely recommend it to others.

Het contact met Alexandra verliep uitstekend: vlot, duidelijk en volledig. We hebben met 7 volwassen en één peuter ons goed vermaakt in Noord Holland. We zochten een plek waar we zowel konden uitwijken naar Enkhuizen, als naar Zee. Waardoor voor ons de locatie perfect was. Het huis is erg ruim, fijne bedden, complete keuken, heerlijke banken en de biljarttafel zorgen voor een super verblijf. Als koppel sliepen wij beneden en werden we gewekt door de koeien van de buren. Heerlijk even weg!

I live in the Netherlands and own a house on Bonaire, in the Dutch Caribbean, which we have named Casa Pelicano. We use the house when we can, and during the rest of the year rent it out to others interested in spending their holidays on this great island!
Besides Casa Pelicano on Bonaire, we also offer a spacious farmhouse in the countryside about 30mins to the north of Amsterdam. A great place to stay with your family or friends!
