Minke is a very experienced host with helpful tips for your stay around the area. Minke's place is very clean, the shower was brand new. The area is quite providing a good night dream better than ever. Bikes provided for rent are high quality with several gears. Breakfast was nice. The only concern is that bus to Staphorst ends around 19:00 so make sure to catch the last bus to arrive by public transport.
