It is well positioned, being a 30 mins direct trainride plus a short taxi drive from Schiphol, 30 mins free park and ride to Amsterdam or Utrecht, 15 mins drive by car from the royal Paleis Soestdijk.

I am a caring host, and rent out a self contained studio appartment as well as two bedrooms on a B&B basis. My home is decorated in a contemporary classic style. The house has a front and back garden with various terraces to sit on. On request, my entire home can be rented for an agreed period. I am Dutch born, yet a native English speaker who has travelled enough to anticipate your travel needs and am oriented to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
I have known Catharina for the past 5 years through her Master of Wine studies. She is a very nice and kind person. She has always been very approachable with people. Catharina is a precise person, keeps her promises and has always been on time with projects. I am convinced that she maintains a similarly high ethos with the B&B too.
hi, I have know Catharina for many years and she is a very reliable friend.I am sure you wont be dissapointed when you use her accommodation, its clean and modern and all you can dream of. She is a perfect hostess and has a lovely house. I know her as a winefriend, she is a great connaisseur of wine around the world and organizes tastings, and has run her own wine academy. Just try it, and experience her fantastic place.
Living in South Africa, I have used airbnb before when overseas and it was a very positive experience. My sister Catharina is a wine professional and an attentive host.
Her bed and breakfast is a home away from home, and a top spot to explore walking and biking trails. Catharina is well organised and provides a great Dutch breakfast!
I have met Catharina at many self development courses over the last seven years and we have become good fiends.
Very recently I stayed with her for a few days in her beautiful home in Blaricum. Catharina is a caring host, and very attentive to your needs. The accommodation is lovely, tastefully furnished, spacious, fresh and well organised.
She booked some interesting local restaurants for us - from Asian fusion food to a local restaurant with a magnicent view of the heaths from the terrace.
I enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend to stay at her bed and breakfast.
