Lovely location and garden house right by the water. Great hosts and thoroughly recommend if you need to stay in the area. Hope to visit again one day.

I liked the modern touch of the cottage and it's position close to the water. Although it can be quite cool in April, the stove gave comfortable heat and was our highlight:-) Very comfy bed (and I am very picky with regards to mattresses).

We loved our stay here! The cottage was beautiful, surrounded by a stunning garden. Boskoop is also beautiful and green with all the tree nurseries. It was very quiet and peaceful. We took the boat out for a ride and also used the bikes to cycle to nearby Gouda. Barry went out of her way to welcome us by picking us up from the train station and making sure that everything you could have wanted was provided in the cottage. Barry and Jan were so friendly and welcoming. We would definitely recommend it and would love to come back!

We could not have asked for a better place to stay during our vacation. Barry and her husband were very welcoming and helped us to make our stay as best as possible. Thanks for letting us use your bikes and your boat. Hope to return soon! Thanks again for letting us stay in your beautiful and clean house with the magical garden. Anna and George
