The Space

The house is just outside the centre of Zwolle, an old town with a typical Dutch canal around it. There is wi-fi and a garden. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood and just around the corner there are many shops. It is a beautiful area to bike (one bike available) and to visit old cities and the nearby forest. Every bigger city can be reached in about one to two hours.
The living room is large and part of it is an open plan kitchen. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, two smaller ones with one bed, a bigger one with one bed (and a trundle bed) and there is a loft with a double bed. Three rooms have a washbasin and there is a shower. Towels and bedclothes are available.
It's a 15 minute walk to the old town. There are a lot of restaurants, Dutch and international.
Within 5 minutes walking distance there is a large park to walk around and a children's farm house and playground.
So if you stay here, there is culture, you are near the big Dutch cities (none of them has more than half a million inhabitants), rivers and lakes.
The railwaystation is within 10 minutes walking distance.
This 800 year old town has great charm, a beautiful rural environment and excellent public transport (train and bus) to the rest of our country.

  • Margreet ist sehr liebenswert und fürsorglich. Man fühlt sich rundum wohl. Das Haus und der Garten sind sehr schön. Hab mich gefühlt wie im Hotel! :-) Auf dem Zimmer waren Waffeln und Tee, das Bett war bequem und alles sehr sauber. Eine wundervolle Unterkunft! Danke, Margreet!

  • Margreet is the best! From the minute you arrive you are made to feel welcome and at home. Margreet is kind, amazingly generous and very knowledgeable about Zwolle and the surrounding towns and cities. Nothing is too much problem for Margreet and she ensures you are free to feel completely at home. She always made sure I could use her bike or the house bike. This made for many lovely outings cycling around Zwolle and ensured I could easily visit my son in nearby Hattem, which was the purpose of my visit. Margreet's house is close to the trains and buses also adding to the ease of visiting other places. The house is spacious and it is very easy to relax and do your own thing including cooking and baking, while at the same time Margreet's friendly nature means we had many lovely and enjoyable conversations and shared some meals. I would highly recommend a stay in Margreet's lovely house for however short or long you are visiting The Netherlands. I will be forever grateful that Margreet made it so easy for me to thoroughly enjoy my stay while visiting my son.

  • This nice house with a relaxed host I can recommend to everyone!
    For work I had to stay over in Zwolle for 1 night and arriving at Margreets place felt like coming home. If you feel like talking there's a possibility for that, Margreet is an interesting person to meet in life, if you feel like being quiet on your room that's also okay.
    This house is located only 10 minutes walk, through a shopping street, to the main city centre. Perfect!

  • I chose to stay here while doing work experience in Zwolle. I was working long hours, and it was so comforting to know I could return to a very clean, warm, safe and comfortable house at any time of the day. Margreet was very very heplful, she lent me her bike to use to get to work, showed me around town, we sharred many nice meals together and had great conversations, which helped me understand the dutch way. An amazing how, beautifully furnished, great garden and very comfortable beds!! Loved it.

  • My stay with Margreet in Zwolle was fantastic. The city is a beautiful and quiet introduction to the Netherlands, and I saw no other tourists.

    Margreet is a truly lovely and welcoming host and I felt very lucky to stay in her home. I absolutely recommend it to other visitors!

  • Margreet est une personne trés agréable et serviable, avec pleins de petites attentions ( chocolat, petits gateaux, bonbons et différentes boissons(thé ,café etc...) mises à notre dispositions, petit déjeuners complets(sucré et salé). Malgré un anglais sommaire nous avons communiqué et j'ai hâte d'améliorer mon anglais pour la prochaine fois. Quartier trés calme et trés agréable, la vie parait paisible.Pas assez de temps passé la-bas pour visiter. Elle a joué avec mon fils aux cartes , prêté un ballon de foot, au petit soin même avec les enfants. toute la famille l'a apprécié.
