Our 3-bedroom countryside getaway is a 45 min drive from Amsterdam, in the middle of nowhere. Located on a diverse Recreational Park where people come to relax and unwind.

Our cottage is an older, but renovated place and from the cottage you overlook the fields: Holland in its purest form!
The cottage is focused on a level of comfort with fun, quirky details.

6 people max + baby.

The space
The house is located on a Recreational Park, but there are no communal spaces/activities. There is a parking area, and a car-free path leading to all houses.
Entrance to the park is on the dyke - where you also find the private parking spaces (1 car per house - additional cars have to be parked on the dyke).

After the parking area, you enter the path that leads to all the cottages. We have a private cart for our guests that you can take, it's next to the entrance of house nr 07 - almost at the beginning. Please return the cart back to house nr 07, where you found it, immediately after unloading. If the cart is in use, you can also take the park-carts, please note they also need to be returned asap.

Our cottage is nr20: on the left side, a light blue house with a red roof, more or less in the middle.

There's a creek between our cottage and the field (guarded by a fence). There are trees and bushes and a fence around the lawn which surrounds the house and give privacy. 550m2 private ground, and there is an outdoor playhouse, sandbox, swing + big trampoline.

You enter the house is a hallway, the 1st toilet is here (2nd one upstairs) and space for shoes, luggage and jackets. When you enter the door you arrive in a big open kitchen / dining / lounge space.
The kitchen is newly renovated in sept 2018, and has a dishwasher, and (small) oven, no microwave.

The living room is on the other side with big lounge couches and loads of pillows and toy drawers underneath them.

Upstairs you'll find a bathroom with a tub, toilet and sink/vanity. There are 3 bedrooms;
1. Master bedroom with 1 Queen size bed (1.60x2.00).
2. Bedroom with 2 single beds (0.90x2.00) and 1 baby bed (0.60x1.20), and
3. Bedroom with 1 Queen size bed (1.60x2.00)
All bedrooms and the bathroom have windows to let fresh air inside. There is also a small storage room in which we have extra light bulbs, tools and cleaning supplies etc.

It's only a minute walk to the big Markermeer Lake.
Simply cross the street from the parking, walk up the dyke, and the big Markermeer lake opens up to you.

When you walk some minutes to the right, you'll find a waterfront park, down at the lake, which is a great place for a picnic, to play with a kite, sunbath, and for a swim in the lake.

A walk on the dyke is highly recommended in the evening, during sunset, as it gets a magical touch (or early morning...).

The drive from the house/holiday park to the city of Hoorn, while staying on the dyke next to the lake, is breathtaking. We love this small detour when we drive back to Amsterdam.

There is a tiny picturesque village/community named Oosterleek (less then 100 inhabitants, there are no shops. You can walk to / through this village, also with kids (about a 20 min walk). Oosterleek is the resting place of the Wesfriese Omringdijk between the VOC towns of Hoorn and Enkhuizen.

The dyke is the starting point for cycling or hiking through a varied landscape of orchards, colorful tulip fields, pastures with cattle and picturesque villages famous for the West Frisian bell farms.
