About this listing
My beautiful house was build in 1905. From the outside the house is looking small. Due to some renovations the living space has become large and cosy. There are three rooms available with 5 beds. Try to book, even when the calendar is blocked.
The house is just outside the centre of Zwolle, an old town with a typical Dutch canal around it. Wifi is available and at the back of the house there is a garden. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood 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. (by car or by train)
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. This is a low, only to be used as a bedroom. Three rooms have a washbasin and there is a bathroom with shower, toilet and sink. Towels and bedclothes are available and free. The cleaning fee is 10 euros for each room if more rooms are rented.
It's a 15 minute walk to the old city. 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, lakes and forests.
The railway station is within 10 minutes walking distance.
For those who want to visit Giethoorn, it is less than a hour with public transportation.
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.
Guests are allowed to use the kitchen for cooking and using their meals. They have access to the garden too.
Interaction with Guests
I am living in the same house as my guests. When necessary, I will stay with a friend. If you stay only for a short time I can take care of the breakfast. If my guests need something, I will help them to realize things.
In my neighborhood is the atmosphere of a cozy class neighborhood from the fifties.
In the shops there is everything you need. People are very friendly and helpful.
It is a ten minutes walk to the station. From there it is easy to travel to every city in Holland. Free parking is possible for 16 hours per week. Another free possibility is in 5 minutes walk.
From Schiphol there is a direct train to Zwolle.
Other Things to Note
If you like to cook yourself: there is a large kitchen which can be used by everyone who lives in the house.
Prices mentioned for week and month are prices for the whole house.
When you want to rent one room for longer, please ask the price.
It is important to me that you leave the house in the state you found it: clean. Smoking is not permitted in the house. There is the possibility to smoke in the garden if no other person is there.
During your stay you can eat vegetables and fruit from the garden when available.
Without my permission it is not allowed to use the telephone that belongs to the house.
It is allowed of being used when others are calling you.
Pets are not welcome.

La bellissima casa di Margreet si trova a 5 minuti dal centro di Zwolle e a pochi minuti dalla stazione dei treni. Da ricordare che Zwolle, oltre ad essere un bellissima cittadina, è anche un punto strategico per visitare questa regione dell'Olanda e raggiungere facilmente con mezzi pubblici (treni e bus, che qui funzionano a meraviglia) anche le città più importanti in viaggi veramente brevi e comodi. Margreet ci accolto in modo affettuoso, dandoci le informazioni richieste e provvedendo anche a fornirci di cibi in quantità. L'appartamento è anche più bello di quello che appare in foto, pulitissimo e fornito di ogni confort, compresi bollitore e accessori per prepararsi delle bevande in camera da letto, situata al piano superiore. Dispone di un giardino ben curato dove ci si può rilassare con un buon libro e facendo le coccole ai mici dei vicini che ogni tanto vengono a trovarci. La cucina è funzionale e dotata di ogni accessorio per prepararsi i pasti (compreso microonde), il wi-fi è sempre stato perfettamente funzionante e tutto è stato impeccabile. Margreet è stata perfetta e nella sua casa abbiamo respirato anche tanta gioia di vivere e tanta cultura. Grazie!!
Margreet ist eine ganz besonders liebenswürdige, warmherzige Gastgeberin. Sie hat ihr kleines Stadthaus im Laufe der Jahre zu einem richtigen Schmuckstück ausgebaut. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt und wir haben uns sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt.
Bei der Abreise hatten wir ein technisches Problem am Fahrrad. Margreet hat sich viel Zeit genommen und war uns sehr behilflich, damit wir unsere Reise fortsetzen konnten - dafür noch mal ein ganz besonderer Dank.
Ja Margreet is heel gastvrij, lief voelt je snel thuis bij haar.We zijn heel
goed ontvangen, lekker ontbijt Je hebt heel snel het gevoel dat je
haar al langer kent. Superleuk gezellig huis straalt echt warmte uit.
Je merkt aan haar dat ze het met veel liefde doet.Gezellige stad

Magreet heeft een heel leuk huisje, omdat wij wat te vieren hadden had ze zelfs een glas prosecco klaarstaan! Daarnaast kregen we een kaartje mee zodat we wisten waar we heen moesten lopen en 's ochtends stond er uitgebreid ontbijt klaar. Het was precies wat we zochten en Magreet is leuk gezelschap!
