It's such lovely place, decorated with so much taste. Moreover, Margreet is a very pleasant host. One feels very much at home here. I can only recommend the stay, especially if you plan to be in Groningen for longer that a holiday, privately or professionally.

Margareet was an amazing host and the apartment is fantastic, incredibly clean and comfortable. She really went above and beyond as a host and made me the most delicious Indian dinner the day I arrived! It was also great to have a bike to get around Groningen. I spent two weeks at this listing and felt perfectly at home. I would highly recommend the apartment to anyone visiting groningen.

The studio is clean and spacious enough with full kitchen and a fridge. Linens are also clean and everything in need was there. Margreet was a wonderful host. She rent me a nice bike and even send me to the place I had to go, biking together. The location is better than hotels inside the city because hotels in the center is a bit far from Groningen station, but her place is close to Groningen Noord station. That helped me to take a train with a large suitcase. I would go to Groningen again, this is the place I really want to stay again.

I stayed in this apartment for six weeks between January and March. The apartment is really nice, the large windows allow a lot of light in and there is plenty of space for one or two persons. The furniture is nice and modern and there is access to a small garden in the back. The location is conveniently close to a train station and there are several supermarkets close by. With the bike that comes with the apartment, you can reach the city centre in five minutes and there is also a nice park only two bike minutes away. The host, Margreet, lives in the rest of the house and is very nice. She is very helpful and if you need something, you know she will do her best to comply with your wishes. All things considered, I had a great time there and would recommend it to everyone. If I come back to Groningen at any time, I'll definitely stay here again.

I can definitely recommend this place to anyone, who wants to have a lovely stay in Groningen! The studio was such a nice place to live - comfortable, cozy, fully furnished, and it had everything I needed. In addition to this, it had a very home-like feeling to it. And Margreet is such a nice lady; I got a very warm welcome, when I arrived, and she even brought me flowers and a pair of slippers to make me feel welcome and at home! :) It's close to the city center, super market just 5 minutes away, and it's close to a really nice park too. If I ever go back to Groningen, I will definitely try to get this place again.

I had an amazing experience with this apartment! As a welcome gift I received flowers from my host and another for Santa Claus. Margreet is really an amazing person. She is very polite, friendly and always willing to help. The apartment is neat and clean and has everything you need for normal life. Once a week I had a maid cleaning the whole apartment. Beside of that I also had a bicycle which was a great help for me in Groningen. The location is excellent, close to the city center to shops and to Zernike Complex. All in all I had a really great experience. I felt like at home and I would definitely recommend it to everyone without any doubts.

Margreet is a very warm and friendly hostess and we enjoyed our stay. Her location is very good for walking the city and for the train connections. She was very much open to suggestions for improving the stay. But overall very nice and a well equipped kitchen. Good luck in the future, Margreet!

Be welcome at my home, I am Margreet. I love staying abroad with local friends and that is why I built this studio this way. The idea is that my friends from abroad can come and visit me. I know quite a bit about the Groningen landscape and nature because I used to work in this field. When I have no visitors I use the studio for dancing Argentinian tango.
