I have a lovely house in a small but nice river side town. I have great sunny roof terrace and a have turned my back yard into a mexican patio. I have a brand new kitchen and a luxurious bathroom
My house is my base when I am not traveling. I love to be there and bring in the atmosphere from my travels. It is in a quite street in the historical centre of Schoonhoven, the silver town. The river is just a few hundred meters away and we are in the middle of the green heart of the Netherlands, with all mayor cities close by!
There is good public transport. My town is at the river Lek. If the roof terrace is too hot you can enjoy a sunny afternoon at the river, it is just a hunderd meters from my house. Shops, restaurants and bars are really close. I have many friends living in the area and they are all available to help you out with your questions or if you need help.
Interaction with Guests
Since I am traveling myself you have the house for yourself. I won't be able to meet you in person, but I am available for questions. My friend will be your contact during your stay.

The public transport is good, there are direct buses to Rotterdam, Gouda and Utrecht. Amsterdam is one hour away. There is a ferry a few hundred meters which will take you across the river where you can take a bus to Gorinchem.
Since I normally live in the house my clothes and personal belongings are just there. i expect you to respect my personal stuff and also please take care not to damage anything during your stay. I will also ask you to water the plants when you stay in my house! The last rule is: enjoy yourself.
Fluffy towls and a giant bath (I'm 1,64m). Angela's cute little house is decorated with care.
The village Schoonhoven is no sleepy town. In fact, it's full of bar & restaurants so quite busy. Therefore, I would recommend this place rather for couples or friends looking for a good getaway with fun than families with (small) kids. As the streets are narrow, the traffic is busy and the town is crowded.
Een leuk en makkelijk huisje in een lekker rustig straatje midden in het centrum van een leuk stadje. Ik heb het er prima naar mijn zin gehad. Angelique is een vriendelijke dame, ze heeft me zelfs nog een rondleiding door de stad gegeven!
Angelique's house was more than i could ask for. It was nice and cozy and perfect.. exactly what i asked for and more.. The towns people were friendly and helpful. I give her props for having a really good home!
It's exactly like Angelique said: a nice and cosy house with a sunlit roof terrace! It's a ideal place to come to rest or connect to any mayor city in the neighbourhood. I definitely recommend staying there if your passing by. Angelique is a very friendly and helpful host. She recommended us a lot of things in her neighbourhood.
Nice,quiet place to stay. Ideal location, landscape for cycling drives.
Utrecht, Rotterdam, seaside, Den Haag are close.
A small house with facilities (bathroom, kitchen, living room and outdoor terraces (ground floor, roof). You enter a 'living' house.
Angelique was on holidays but she gives helpfull instructions (internet,email).

I didn't meet Angelique myself but I received a very warm welcome from a friend of hers and both stayed in touch during my stay which was very nice and gave me tips on where to go etc..
I didn't want to talk about the house too much because I wanted to keep this osasis to myself but I changed my mind :-)
Her house is amazing, cute, stylish, clean.. it's everything you see on the pictures and more...I can honestly say I slept better in her house than in my own..
As I work from home a lot I needed a good working internet connection, and her wifi is very good ..( once you get the password right )
My name is Angelique Slob, I am from a small town in The Netherlands. I have been working as a self-employed HR manager since 2007. During this period I studied Sociology at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam and I tried to travel as much as I could. I love going reading, traveling, riding my motorbike, cooking and spending time with my friends.
