The Space


We live with our family of 5 in an old school build in 1927. Our house is build in an old neighborhood near the park " Het Noorderplantsoen ". Within the old gymnasium of the school a guest room has been created. It can hold 4 people comfortably (2 on a double bed and 2 in a bunk bed) and even 6 on a extra sofa bed. It has got it's own entrance, it's own shower and toilet. It's also got it's own kitchenette with a fridge, a hob, a microwave and a sink. Also a television and good WIFI are available. We provide bedsheets and towels and if you stay more then a week or so you can also use our washer.

You look out on to the garden of the house with a little terrace you can use. The distance to town is 5 minutes by bike and there are a couple of extra bikes for you to use. The apartment is perfectly suitable for a couple, family or a group of friends. A supermarket is very nearby and a railway station (Groningen Noord) is at a short walking distance.

Groningen is an old city (email hidden)ly buzz to it. The nightlife is very good and we can also provide you with some good tips for restaurants in the city centre. The city has got a lot of culture and it's near the lovely and quiet Wadden islands. Also the surroundings have got a lot to offer. Our house is also situated very close to the popular walking trail "Het Pieterpad" that runs from the northern tip of the Netherlands to the most southern tip of the country.

Let us know if you would like the bikes, we set them up for you.

Hope to CU soon

  • We had an absolutely wonderful stay with Bas and his family. Cute, quiet apartment, close to the park and a short walk to town. Very comfortable accommodation with everything you need. Great hosts who love their city and know it well so can offer lots of suggestions of what to do. Would stay again without any hesitation!!
    Thanks for a great 10 days.

  • We really liked staying here. The apartment is large, light, and has a nice, cozy, and home-like atmosphere. We found the location ideal for a city trip; it was only 15 minutes by foot to the city center, and we could also conveniently use Bas' bikes to get around the city even quicker. We'd be very happy to stay here again!

  • We spent four days in Bas and Jo's apartment while visiting our daughter that is studying in Groningen. The apartment was clean, cozy and very well (website hidden) and Bas and their three adorable little girls made us feel at home. They were very nice in lending us two bikes, which are very helpful in Groningen.

    We certainly recommend their place and would be back if we have the opportunity to do so.

  • We hebben genoten van ons weekendje in het prachtige appartement van Bas en zijn gezin! Het is een leuke, gezellige ruimte, voorzien van eigenlijk alles dat je nodig zou kunnen hebben. Ook de ligging van de locatie is erg prettig, dichtbij een park en op loopafstand van het centrum. Wat wil je nog meer!

  • Bas and Jo have a very cosy, welcoming place to stay. We felt at home from day 1 and got the chance to explore Groningen by bicycle (provided by the hosts!)

    If you want to enjoy the city in a very 'local' way, don't hesitate in booking a place at Bas' place.

  • We hebben een heel prettig weekend in het appartement gehad. Heel vriendelijke ontvangst. Prima locatie en met de geleende fietsen is het centum vlakbij.

  • Thank you Bas and Joe for the wonderful stay. The apartment is very nice, comfortable and clean. The location is just ideal. All in all I can't find a better place to stay in Groningen.
    All the best.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed with Bas and his incredible family for two weeks and we cannot wait to return for a second round! The location is unbeatable, situated down a quiet lane and mere steps from the Nooderplantsoen park and a grocery store. The city center is an easy 10 minute walk away. The apartment itself is fully stocked and cosy, with massive windows that look out onto Bas' beautiful front yard. A table outside of our door was the perfect spot to sip a coffee and catch a bit of September sun.

    Bas was kind enough to lend us bicycles which allowed us to cruise the city as the locals do (the only way to do it, truly!). Bas could not have been more accommodating. Thanks for a fabulous stay, Bas!
