Interaction with Guests
When you stay in our house we won't be there. You will have contact with one of our neighbors and you will be able to ring me on my cellphone or text me.
Our house is situated in one of the older neighborhoods of the city, established around 1880. It's small streets and small picturesque houses make it a very pleasant area to live in.
The "Station Noord" railway station is at 7 minutes walk from our house. We never use the bus but they are there because we see them quite often on the streets nearby or neighborhood.
In the streets there is payed parking. Our drive is occupied by our electrical car. A couple of block away, in an other neighborhood you can park for free, you can find it on the internet on the site of the council.
Other Things to Note
Our house is a listed building for the council. This means we can't alter anything to it without permission of the council first.
Our house is a family home. There are lots of toys (mainly girls toys). So families are very welcome. Some rules apply to feed the 3 chickens daily and to lock them up for the night. Only the big fire is allowed to be used. Wood shall be provided.
You can make use of our Sonos system with spotify function. You will find the control on the working top of the kitchen.
The televisions have their separate remote controls and their will be a short explanation for them.
We take great effort in preparing our house for you when you visit and will try to have it as clean and tidy as possible. Cleaning material can be found in our utility room behind the kitchen. We expect of you to take effort in leaving the house in a state as you have found it.
Een erg leuk, groot huis. Veel mogelijkheden. Dichtbij de stad, ideaal. Wij waren met 9 vrienden En hebben een leuk weekend gehad. Bas, jo en buurman kor zijn vriendelijke mensen. We voelden ons zeer welkom!
With a group of ten we spent a lovely time in the old school in
Groningen. A very spacious apartment with a great atmosphere close to the city centre and a nice parc. Very nice, helpful and relaxed hosts. We can certainly recommend this place!
Utöver det vanliga!! Tillsammans med barnen har vi bott under sommaren i tre veckor i gamla skolan. Massor med utrymme. både inne och ute, mitt i stan, i vacker stil. Bas och familj är väldigt gästfria och ordnade allt för ett trevlig vistelse. Vi rekommenderar huset till alla och återkommer gärna!!
Above average!! Together with our 3 kids have we spent the summer in the old school of Bas in Groningen. Very spacious, inside as well as outside. The architecture is beautifull and you feel at home here. In the middle of the great city of Groningen. Bas and family have arranged everything to make our stay as good as it could be. We recommend the house to everybody and we plan to come back sometime.
We had a marvelous stay at this school/house. It is a real big house with a lot of space. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. The house has everything you might need like games, books, xbox and even a Sonos sound system (we loved it)
The location is good. Within fifteen minutes walking you are in the city center which hosts a myriad of activities like dining, shopping, culture and going out.
Communication with the owner (Bas) was good, fast and convenient.
We enjoyed staying here for a weekend and recommend it to everyone considering to stay in Groningen.
We found this a very spacious and comfortable family home in quiet location near park and city centre. The house is well appointed for adults as well as children, including bicycles! We received a friendly welcome from the neighbour and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Groningen is a lively town with lots to see and do, as well as providing a good base for trips into the surrounding country side. Corresponding with Bas was easy, responses were always prompt and informative. They even left us fresh apple pie for our arrival. We loved our stay here and have no hesitation in recommending it to others!
The house was perfect. It was clean, big and it was very nice to spend a week in it.
Bas and his neighbor Kor, who showed us the house and answered our questions, were very polite and friendly.
We had a lot of fun with the X-box and Lets Dance :)
We were happy to stay at Bas'and Jo's home for 2 nights with a group of 9 and it was more than perfect. The house and the garden were beautiful. The kitchen was well eqipped and the rooms were lovely. Bas was incredibly friendly and helpful, as well as his neighbour who gave us the key. We would love to come again!
