Boats can be rented nearby. The jetty in front of the holiday home is used for swimming, rowing and 'suppen'; thus you can bring your boat, sups or kayak or rent these nearby to explore, sail or fish on the river the Vecht or the lakes (Loosdrechtse Plassen) in the surroundings.

The river Vecht is indisputably Holland's most beautiful river with its castles and numerous 17th-century country estates.

Our cottage is situated in a quite area with view on the fields and forest. Early in the morning you can spot in the field behind your cottage some deers if you are lucky and special birds like storks and birds of prey.
Near the house are two bikes that can be rented and make a beautiful cycling tour to typical Dutch villages, like Breukelen and Maarssen, or visit the famous casstle Kasteel de Haar or Slot Zuylen, nearby. You will probably do not have enough time to visit all the beautiful spots in the area. What about visiting Utrecht, with its Domtoren, or Amsterdam with the Rijksmuseum?

If desired, breakfast and / or dinner can be provided and you can use the washing machine & dryer of the owners all for an for an additional fee. The garden with two barbeques and fire bowl is shared with the owners and their two children and dog.

Our cottage is well known by business people as well from all over the world. We are situated in the centre of The Netherlands, between big and beautiful cities of Utrecht and Amsterdam and so nearby conference locations like the Jaarbeurs Utrecht and the Rai. After a busy day at a conference it is so nice to relax in your own cottage in the countryside. Within 20 minutes you are in Utrecht or Amsterdam.

Ik ben 46 jaar en een spontaan, enthousiast en betrokken persoon die graag andere mensen met verschillende achtergronden leert kennen. Ik sta graag klaar voor mijn gasten om hen tips en andere informatie te geven en maak het mijn gasten graag naar hun zin om hun verblijf zo perfect mogelijk te maken. Ik ben dol op paardrijden, bootcampen, koken, lekker eten en drinken en Nederlandstalige en klassieke muziek kunnen mij ontroeren. In mijn vrije tijd wandel ik graag met mijn Labrador Retriever hond Marley van 4 jaar. Tevens ga ik er graag op uit met mijn man Remko en dochters Jette en Stella. Bijvoorbeeld in de zomer een tochtje maken over de Vecht of op de Loosdrechtse Plassen in ons bootje en dan halverwege stoppen bij een eilandje om daar gezellig te picknicken of barbecuen.
