A light garden house, with an en-suite private bathroom for people who both love cities and nature. It is situated on top of a colorful and bountiful garden, which is my biggest pride and passion. Only a 10 minute bike ride from the citycenter.

The space

I live in a lovely, quiet, neighborhood, close to the city center. My garden is very big and it's terraces are sunny and secluded from the cold winds, which spring sometimes brings to the Netherlands. I grow my own vegetables and could tell you anything about (organic) gardening/farming.
The garden house itself (which is separate from my house) is situated on top of the garden, with an access to the main terrace. It is fairly spacious and it includes a private en-suite bathroom (shower+toilet). Heating, and a big blanket will keep you warm and cosy during cold days. Fresh linen and the smell of flowers coming through the windows will keep you comfortable during summer. All in all a perfect place to come to peace and enjoy the city and it's outskirts with comfort.

Guest access

- A private en-suite bathroom
- A double bed
- Linen (incl. towels)
- The garden
- Ironing facilities
- Guests can also make use of the kitchen and the main living area.

Interaction with guests

I work fairly irregularly, but I am mostly there during the evenings (and regularly also during the day). I would love to share conversations with my guests; it is my motivation to open my houses to airbnb people. Often, my husband will be there too, for both conversations and the hosting.

Other things to note

You can order a big and healthy breakfast (that typically includes bread rolls, fresh juice, and yoghurt), that can be adapted to your liking for the fee of € 8,50 per person

Very well maintained house in a beautiful garden, even in January. We were welcomed by our host with a cup of coffee and a nice conversation, the bed was very good and everything we needed was provided. We were also able to borrow bicycles from our host, which made the trip to the city center even shorter and easier. Would definitely recommend this, also for a longer stay.

I truly loved my space with Ellen and Cees. Not only the space also being near very intellectual people makes me happy. I had my privacy and beautiful garden to look and enjoy. The neighborhood is very nice and everything nearby in a walking distance. On cold winter evenings ,I could microwave popcorn and enjoy a movie, in a warm, clean place. So, it is just like in the pictures plus, great hosting, among all the goodies and superbly cute room.

I felt extremely welcome when I arrived. Ellen offered me food and beverage and we have talked before she showed me my accommodation. The location was great, unfortunately it was raining for the days I have stayed however the Garden was marvelous and the host extremely friendly. I definitively recommend this AirBnB if you are staying in this area. The accommodation is 5 star! Thank you for having me.

We got a very warm welcome, even though we arrived (after a phone call) a few hours earlier. Very open minded, we immediately felt it was the right place to be. Any question was answered immediately and when we indicated there were mosquitos and it would be a good idea to install screens some time, within 2 hours the screens were there!

A pleasure to meet Ellen and her husband who were very welcoming and we engaged in good conversation in their lovely garden. The garden house is perfect and has all you need, TV, bed, bathroom, washer, microwave, etc. A very good place to stay

I am a middle aged woman who loves to travel with the aim to learn more from other countries and the people who live there. I love culture. In my spare time, I love making ceramics or making statues of iron. In addition, I play theatre and I am involved in a group that is working on making our neighborhood greener by means of urban agriculture, solar panels, etc.
I have 3 grown-up children, and a husband who I love to travel with.
