The joys of staying in luxurious surroundings in a typical historical Dutch village and yet door to door to the North Sea Jazz Festival in 15 minutes!!
We have designed and built our own home in the beautiful historical village of Oud-Beijerland.
The room has an ensuite bathroom and very comfortable double bed.
There is also a TV and DVD player in the house with a wide variety of dvds and old videos of many different genres including wild life,classics, historical drama and the popular romantic comedies.
We also have a beamer in the main living room and if time allows we enjoy watching a film together with our guests.
Our garden is on a small canal and it is possible to have breakfast on the waters edge or even sit and fish!! Take our rowing boat for a row down the canal :0).
There are bicycles available for your use. In the summer months you can use the local bicycle ferry to cycle to Rotterdam.
A special fast bus which leaves from across the road takes you to Rotterdam in 15 minutes. This bus takes you straight to The large Zuidplein shopping mall and Ahoy, host to the ABN AMRO Tennis Tournament and North sea Jazz festival.

In the nearby village of Heinenoord is an amazing historical museum showing many scenes of everyday life in the Netherlands of the past. Close by is also the recently restored windmill of Goidschalxoord.

There are even wild buffalo and horses in the nature reserve nearby. You can also visit the free wildlife visitors centre where the expositions show all the wildlife which can be found in the area. See more tips in the guide book!
Those incredible loving people (Bibi and Nico) made me feel home from the first minute on!!! I stayed for a week in Oud-Beijerland and can highly recommend staying with them. This wasn't the last time for me :-)
Bibi and Nico made my first days in Rotterdam really easy. They were very caring and kind, willing to help me with everything I needed assistance with, and the room had everything I needed. They are lovely people and the house is amazing - so there's definitely a reason to come back!
Bibi and her husband Nico were a delight to stay with. As well as a great hostess, her friendly, enthusiastic spirit had us jumping on her spare bikes to see where we'd end up. We had a beautiful place to stay and were given the opportunity to explore the countryside and towns surrounding Rotterdam. My girlfriend and I came over to experience the North Sea Jazz festival and were given so much more of a holiday than we could have ever expected.
Bibi is a fantastic hostess, ready to share her beautiful home, food, and local (especially architectural) knowledge with you. Come for the comfortable, sleek surroundings with easy accessibility to Rotterdam, and stay for the comfort and abundant hospitality.
The best indication of an experience is whether you plan a return.
So, how much ever time it will be before I am able to be back with Bibi and Nico will be too long.
From their hospitality to the town of Oud Beijerland, one simply cannot make a mistake staying here. You will not regret it!
Sehr gastfreundlich, warmherzig und vor allem großzügig.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl bei Bibi und Nico gefühlt, und können sie nur weiterempfehlen.
Danke nochmals, und hoffentlich bis bald.
Bibi and Nico were terrific hosts. They were very helpful in their recommendations for local foods and sightseeing. Very importantly for us, their home is handicap-accessible, and they were most helpful with our accessibility needs.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
