Description

The space

Welcome !
Our charming historic house from 1899 is fully self contained and fully equipped including kitchen, cozy living room , separate bedroom and bathroom with jacuzzi . It is in a superbe nice area , in the centre of Utrecht , with garden on the water and within 10 minutes you're on a terrace in the center of Utrecht !

Space
The rooms have beautiful details such as ornaments on the ceiling and doors with stained glass windows . The open kitchen is complete with microwave , oven, stove , fridge and dishwasher and runs through to the garden on the water . The apartment is equipped with WIFI , flat screen TV, DVD Dolby surround , stereo and numerous CDs and DVDs .

Sleeping has to be comfortable so we have a two persons boxspring, a state of the art double fold away bed and a double and one person comfortable high inflateble bed available. Also we have a babycot. Children at that age of course stay for free. On request clothes can be washed and breakfast can be provided. The stay includes the use of linens, bathrobes , towels etc and there will always be coffee, thee, spices etcetera for the start of your stay. There are al lot of fun toys and dvd’s available for the clhildren and there is a super fun ( Grift ) Park, 3 minutes away from our appartment for playing and climbing as well as a petting zoo and a lovely reataurant and terrace on the water !

Utrecht is a lot of fun !
During your stay , there will be soon a bike available to explore Utrecht and the surroundings. With great pleasure we give tips of highlights in Utrecht. Utrecht is one of the best and finest places to stay . That’s what the BBC reports on its travel website. Utrecht is described as a city full of charming cafes and restaurants , where thousands of students enliven the city. Celebrated and famous is the Old Canal with cellar bars and cafes on the waterfront .

Relaxed
Public transport is praised as well that Utrecht is Hollands best festival city whole year around, the beautifull flower market and The Dom, making Utrecht a city with the amenities of a big city , but with the atmosphere of a provincial capital : much more relaxed than Amsterdam and Rotterdam . We wish to welcome you !

The Vogelenbuurt (Bird area) in the heart of Utrecht !
The Bird Area is located in the center of Utrecht and is by far the nicest neighborhood in Utrecht ! There is plenty to see and do and all the necessary amenities are within walking distance . The house is near the canal and through the water you can go into the center with the famous Old Canal. Within a 10 minute walk you are in the city center with all its shops, attractions , cafes , the Old Canal with its wharfs and of course the Dom . Additionally near the house is a beautiful park ( Griftpark ) with a restaurant and lovely terrace , but you can also relax there and have a picnic ! The neighborhood is also very child friendly with little traffic near ! You can therefore have a quiet sleep .

Close to everything and easy access !
In the district run every 10 minutes several buses to and from the center and from Utrecht Central Station . The main train station is approximately 10-15 minutes. As indicated, there are also two bicycles available and there is a large car park near our house ( Grifthoek ) which has always place for your car. For those who would like to have the car in front or in the immediate vicinity there is a free parkingpermit available! That makes it very easy and it makes a difference of
€ 15.00 to € 20.00 parking fee a day! Sunday parking is by the way free everywhere in Utrecht. From Utrecht Centraal is the fact less than 30 minutes by train to Schiphol!

Extra fun !
Near the house on request there can be canoes and pedalos rented

It was one of the best airbnb experience i've ever had, my gf and i had an excellent time in John and Monique's place. They are really nice and kind to us! The loft is exactly the same as shown in the picture, was nicely decorated and neat, fully equipped kitchen with tons of utensiles and they provided us with nice coffee! Garden was beyond our expectation, was super cute and lovely, we really hoped we could stay more!! With no doubt i would recommand this place to further guests, you won't regret it! 굉장히 깨끗하고 사진 그대로입니다 집도 너무 예쁘고 가든도 정말 잘 꾸며져 있으며 자전거도 제공해줍니다. 집주인도 굉장히 친절하고 좋은 사람들이였습니다.

What I found in the house not only fulfilled my expectations, but also wetn further. I found two very welcoming hosts, and theri son very helpful too. I felt like at home, with all tha appliences and stuff needed to cook and feel comfotable. We are now in love with Utrech thanks to its culture, to its streets, and also because we felt very comfortable in the house. We rented a car, and the parking permit was great. Our two daughters enjoyed specially the toys in the house. If we have to come back to Holland, we will definitely rent the same apartment. I hope my information is helpful.

Monique and John were very friendly and helpful. They have a fantastic apartment with everything what you need (towels, shower, a big well-provided kitchen, a wonderful garden and colorful decoration). The apartment is located in a quiet area nearby the park and the city center. This place is highly recommended!
