About this listing
Peaceful rural town but new house in a new neighborhood! Nice environment for biking and walking. Beautiful city of Den Bosch is only 13km away. Public transport available.
You have a private bedroom with double bed.
We have a really new house and my boyfriend did most of the work on the house by himself, so it looks really nice. You will have a private bedroom on the first floor, which is normally our room. We have a mattress in the attic where we sleep when you visit. Possible to put a baby bed in the bedroom, we have one if you need one. Extra persons can sleep in the living room on the couch or on an air mattress. Extra persons could also sleep in the attic on the double mattress on the floor, then we will sleep on the couch downstairs.
Access to the whole house. Your bedroom is private, the rest of the house you share with my boyfriend and me. You can use the kitchen as well. We are still working on our back yard. We hope to finish this by next summer so our guests have a nice place to sit outside.
Interaction with guests
We can tell you lots about what to do around here. If we have time we could show you around in the city or the countryside if you like. We have lots of recommendations about good restaurants close by or in the city. We can get discounts on a lot of activities, tourist attractions and sometimes public transport in the Netherlands.
The town is peaceful, quiet and rural, but it has everything you need like
multiple supermarkets, drug store, bakery, butchery, and so on.
Really nice neighborhood which is still being build. The road is still being used by construction workers so this can be messy at times and it's uneven, so please be careful.
There are possibilities for biking and walking in the countryside. You will see lots of cows, farms, windmills, typical Holland!
The beautiful old city of Den Bosch ('s-Hertogenbosch is the same) is only a 10 minute drive away. By public transport it's 30 minutes. Lots of activities there, like boat rides on the canal, climbing the church and of course shopping. You will find everything you need in the city.
We love the close by town of Buren, which is a fortified historical village with fabulous pancakes! Nice little touristic shops here and a beautiful route to travel by bike or car from our town.
Closer by is the town of Zaltbommel, which is over a 1000 years old! Quite some shops here and really nice buildings, church, bridge and waterfront. You can do guided historical city walks here and volkswagen bug rides. If bug rides are your thing we can also arrange a ride in our very own Volkswagen bug for a small price! Isn't that a cool taxi? ;)
Free parking in front of our house.
Buses go every half an hour to either Den Bosch or Zaltbommel. From Den Bosch you are connected by train to the rest of Holland. Utrecht is only 30 minutes away and Amsterdam only 60. Other nice cities are Breda (20 minutes), Maastricht (60 minutes) and Nijmegen (30 minutes).
