Come and stay in our cosy apartment in a truly wonderful building and perfect location to visit our lovely city of Groningen.

The space


We live with our family of 5 in an old school build in 1927. Our house is built in an old neighbourhood 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 bedding and towels and if you stay more then a week or so you can also use our washingmachine.

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 with a lively buzz to it. The nightlife is very good and we can also provide you with some good tips for restaurants in the city centre and in our local neighbourhood. The city has got a lot of culture, including 2 bij festivals Noorderzon in the summer and Eurosonic in january. Groningen city is also a short drive to a habour so you can visit the picturesque Wadden islands, which we would thoroughly recommend for a day trip. 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. If you enjoy cycling there are plenty of cycle routes in the surrounding countryside.

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

Hope to CU soon

It is a very nice place in a quite and beautiful neighbourhood. I enjoyed the stay there very much, especially the wonderful garden and the convenient access to supermarket. Bas is a quite nice person who provided me much help before my journey. So are Seerp and Esther, who provided me many life tips and were always very patient to my questions. As a foreigner, I really benefited a lot from them.

we don't met bas and jo in person, but we met the nice family who lived now in this house with lovely kids. our trip to groningen with our daughter 2,5 years was totally good. our hosts were super friendly and invited us for a coffee and show us everything, very helpful with the bikes. from the first moment we feel really welcomed. with our bikes we were free and within minutes everywhere in groningen. next to us was a nice park. the neighborhood was also very good. we highly recommended this stay!-... we want to come back again!

Nice independant flat in a beatiful location in the city of Groningen. We were 5 to come and we all really enjoy our stay and our hosts who were really kind. I would advice this flat to any group of people that wants to live Groningen experience (even if it is a bit far from the city by foot).

I had a great time at 'the apartment in the old School near centre'. Bas and his family are very kind and welcoming. The description matches the apartment very well, it's basic but complete and the artistic feeling to it can't be carried by pictures. The neighborhood is idyllic and every thing (centre, zernike, supermarket) is nearby. This place is definitely good value for it's price.
