Cozy standalone and central heated cottage in our backyard. It's very suitable for a couple (with max 2 children). Walking distance to the beach, dunes and free parking. Also free satellite TV and Nespresso coffee!
Enjoy a day at the beach, a walk through the dunes and relax in the garden while preparing a BBQ.
Our Cottage (Ons Zomerhuis) is only 400m walking distance from the beach next to the entrance of the dunes and we share our garden with you.
This -non smoking- cottage is well equipped and very suitable for families with children. The cottage is situated at the back of our garden and has it's own entrance and is central heated.
In the living room you will find the HIFI (iPod + Squeezebox and spottily connection) and TV connected to satellite TV with most European channels. There is also a 2 person sleeping couch(1.90 x 1.80).
Adjoining the living room you will find a kitchen with sink, refrigerator, Nespresso coffee machine, microwave and a stove (4 plates). Kitchenware such as plates, cups, glasses, pans, cutlery are available. The bathroom has a shower and toilet. There are towels, liquid soap and shampoo.
On the second floor there is a bedroom with kingsize bed (size: 2,00 x 1,80 m) and fixed cabinets.
Fast WiFi Internet access is provided for free. Including clean ironed linen, towels, tea towels, electricity and heating. You can rent bikes from a shop nearby (€7,50 a day) to explore the beautiful dunes. Free parking is only 30m. from the house, you can park the car in front of the house for baggage drop-off (use our free parking card for max. 4hours).
Most of the pictures shown are taken by AirBnB but some of our guests expected the living room to be much bigger. So please note that the living room is sized: 5mX3.5m and the kitchen is 2.5mX2m. The bathroom is small: 2.5mX1m. We have included a picture with the layout.
Exclusive access to the cottage. We have provided the cottage with a small save so you can store valuables when you visit the beach or go out for a walk.
In case you travel with children, we have facilities for a baby or young child (bed+chair+small bathtub).
Interaction with Guests
Our guest can always knock on the door, or use the intercom system, to ask us for anything they need. We'd be glad to help them to show them around or help with anything in or around the cottage.
In the summer we sometimes share the lounge-set and we get to know each other better.
Katwijk feels like a quiet, small town where life simply goes about it's own way. There are plenty of shops and restaurants and an award-winning local museum. In the summer time Katwijk hosts festivals and other events that attracts thousands of tourists. However, for some reason this town has never became "mainstream". And that's exactly the way the locals want it to stay. Katwijk is perfectly located if you want to explore The Netherlands or simply need a place to stay when you planned on spending your entire summer holiday at the beach!

Arrival time from 15h00 and check-out no later then 10h30 unless otherwise agreed upon. You can use our self-check-in-system, we will send an email one week (when possible) before you arrive with details on how this works. You can check-in/out any time you want as long as it's after 15h00.
It's always possible to bring/leave your suitcases on the day of arrival/check-out in our home so you don't have to leave them in the car.
The garden (incl. couches) are shared with the owners so it's not always possible to use the couches although we don't mind spending some time with you so feel free to join us. We have two cats that consider the cottage as their own private property. Although we do our best to keep them out of the cottage they always find a way to sneak in. Please don't book if you are allergic or afraid of cats.
Note that we do not allow smoking in the cottage or in our garden. We often spend time in our garden, as you might want to do too and we don't feel like asking not to smoke. So please don't book if you want to smoke during your stay!
Our cat Wicky loves to spent time in the garden when weather permits. When given the slightest chance he will sneak into the cottage. This means that we ask you not to book if you are allergic or afraid of cats.
Host was very helpful, detailed instructions on how to reach the apartment, where the park the car, etc. Nespresso was a nice touch and it was warm enough, with heating, although outside it was pretty chilly.
Ideal place for 3/4 people, with 1 double bed and 1 more bed + mattress.
Recommended if you're visiting the NL coast.
Persönliche Begrüßung durch die Gastgeber. Sie waren sehr freundlich. Die Beschreibung zur Anreise und Check in war sehr detailliert und gut bebildert.
Zur Begrüßung gab es ein paar Schokoladen-Eier, die noch von Ostern übrig waren.
Zu bemängeln war die WC-Dusche, Leider fehlte uns ein Bad mit Spiegel und Waschbecken. Man musste zum Zähneputzen in der Küche das Waschbecken benutzen und sich am Garderobenspiegel schminken bzw. Haare kämmen. Das hat uns nicht gefallen.
Wir waren mehr als zufrieden mit der süßen Unterkunft in Katwijk! Bei Fragen konnten wir uns immer direkt an die Besitzer wenden. Danke für die schönen Ostertage !
We hebben een goede tijd gehad in het appartement. Het was van alle gemakken voorzien en we voelde ons gelijk thuis.
De locatie was ook helemaal top. Vlak bij het strand en het dorpscentrum op nog geen 5 min. loopafstand.
We totally fell in love with this little cottage. Everything was perfect: It was clean, the furniture was tasteful and functional, the bed comfortable, the neighbourhood safe and friendly and, last but not least, the coffee was great. We felt like home the whole time. The location of the cottage is very convenient for tourists like us: The city centre, the North Sea (with an incredible wide beach), supermarkets, bus stops and the wonderful dunes are close by. I would totally recommend to stay with Dick and Lize!
The cottage was a perfect match for what we were looking for. It was very cozy and offered everything we wanted in our stay. Bed was comfortable. Fully functioning kitchen. Plenty of hot water. Short walk to the beach and dunes. Free parking right across the street. We would be happy to stay here again.
This is a wonderful little house, close to the beach (walkable in around 10 minutes). It has everything you will need and we felt very comfortable and welcome.
