About This Listing
Our cottage is located in the woods in western Achterhoek just over an hour's drive from Amsterdam. It is not a park, but rather on a plot of 2 acres private forest. It has a large pool of 3,5 x 8 meters.
In 2005 the house supervised by the famous dutch architect Piet Hein Eek, is rebuilt. The Elle Wonen in 2006 made a report of it, and the VT did the same in 2010.
It has 1 bedroom with 1 double bed, and 1 large bedroom with 2 x 3-person bunk (6 singles in total).
There is a bathroom with shower, washing machine and dryer and an outdoor bathroom with hot shower and bathtub.
The kitchen is fully equipped, large fridge, freezer, a large 4 burner Viking stove, large oven and a cooker. Outside there is a large Weber gas BBQ.
The house is heated by a heating, partly floor heating, radiators and partly by a wood stove with wood from our forest.
We have 2 verandas, 1 is with a large 10-person dining table.
There are 2 adult bikes and 2 children's present.
Last but not least, the house has a pool of 8 x 3.5 meters with a large terrace. The pool when not in use by an automatic deck covered, so no danger to children.
The pool is open from early May until sometime in September.
Still good to know: At 100 meters from the house is a railway line where 4 x per hour (not at night) a train comes along. Makes 10 sec lot of noise!
We had a wonderful time in Jozes cottage. It is as charming as shown on the pictures, full of cool solutions to tricky architectural challenges, but never loses the charme of a cottage. There´s plenty to be impressed with. It is furnished to feel completely at home (which we did) and fondly decorated.
We loved the silence and peace in the middle of all those trees, with the kids swimming in the pool or playing in the woods (it´s a very generous lot with thousands of possibilities - even if the weather is bad there are plenty of toys and board games in the kids room).
Joze was a very easy and helpful host. Before our arrival we got an all-embracing easy to understand manual to the house, the electrical appliances and the pool, so everything worked out perfectly fine.
We miss that little paradise already! Thanks, Joze, for letting us share your house.
