  • Exceeded Every Expectation

    "I booked Joel & Valerie's apartment after a thorough internet search and reading the reviews on this site. This was my first experience with VRBO. This was my 8th trip to Paris, but my s/o's first and it was also a 60th birthday present for him so I wanted something special. I've stayed in very nice hotels for previous visits, but I wanted some space, a place to have breakfast and appetizers, a feeling of belonging to the local culture. The apartment, rather the home, was spectacular. From the time of booking, through arrival, Joel's communication was professional, welcoming, timely and efficient. The home itself is amazing. It is larger than the photos depict. The furnishings are elegant, yet comfortable. The linens, towels and appointments in the kitchen are superior. There is more storage space than we could use. Joel provided perfect instructions on how to use the European appliances and helpful tips and hints for local restaurants, shops and the wonderful new patissiere around the corner. If you must, there is complimentary WIFI. The area is bustling, near Blvd. Haussman, but the apartment sits on a quiet side street. The apartment itself is on the 4th floor, an easy walk up and down or there is the quaint elevator (my s/o said: Occupancy: 3 Parisians, or 2 Americans). :-). In summary, you will not be disappointed, rather you will be delighted. The area is charming, near The Opera, the major department shopping area, and the Musee Jaquemart-Andre is a few short blocks away, as is Park Monceau. Two metro stops are nearby. We also enjoyed the hospitality of the St. Augustin Cafe, directly across the street (great for a late night dinner). Joel's local contact lives on site and assists you with your arrival. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't have stayed more than six nights. Thank you Joel and Valerie for sharing your home with us. We cannot wait to return some time in the future."

Netherlands Travel Tips

Finding Your Way to the Netherlands

The main travel hub in the Netherlands is Amsterdam. Schipol Airport, which is located on the city outskirts, is the fourth busiest airport in Europe. The airport hosts both domestic and international flights from Europe and many other parts of the world. There are many direct flights to Amsterdam from the major cities in North America. The airport has good rail and road links to Amsterdam and the surrounding communities so getting to your travel destination is easy. Rail is one of the easiest and most convenient ways to tour the Netherlands. Almost every town and city has a railway station and frequent train schedules. In the cities, there are also many local metro trains and buses that provide public transportation. If you enjoy being active on your vacation, one of the best ways to explore is by bicycle. The Netherlands is one of the most bicycle-friendly destinations with marked cycle paths and detailed route maps for getting around. Because the landscape is relatively flat, it is is not strenuous work and you can cover quite a lot of mileage in a day.

Visitors to Netherlands Accommodation

The Netherlands is a destination that has a wealth of cultural attractions. Anyone who has an interest in European history and culture will have great fun exploring the many historical sites and museums. If you enjoy walking and cycling, the Netherlands is the ideal destination for you to explore independently. If you decide you have had enough exercise for the day but have still not reached your destination, you can simply hop on a bus or train to travel the remaining distance to your destination.

Those with an interest in art will want to spend some time in Amsterdam where famous painters like Rembrant lived. The Netherlands is considered a very modern society where there is much tolerance for all different types of people. Many activities that are illegal in many other parts of the world are practiced openly. If you are a more conservative type of person, be aware of where you are exploring so you don't find yourself getting offended.

Netherlands Travel Attractions

Most travelers spend their time in the four main cities, namely Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. These cities are the most populated parts of the Netherlands and contain many of the major cultural and historical attractions. Amsterdam is a city filled with beautiful architecture, interesting museums, scenic canals and many coffee shops. It is the main travel destination within the Netherlands. The Hague is a historical city and the residence of the Dutch Royal family. It is also home to the international judiciary. Utrecht has a beautiful historic center and several interesting museums. Rotterdam is the most modern of the Dutch cities and known for its vibrant nightlife.

Favorite Time of Year to Visit the Netherlands

The Netherlands is located in the northwestern part of Central Europe. It has a relatively temperate climate owing to its flat landscape and proximity to the North Sea. Winters are cold and wet although rainfall occurs throughout the year. The summer days are generally long and warm, and ideal for touring and exploring. Accordingly, summer is the peak travel season. June and July are the busiest months of the year but the weather is typically warm from May through September. The landscape is green and interspersed with orchards, fields of flowers and quaint towns. If you are traveling to the Netherlands just for the culture and history, you can choose your travel season. While the weather may not be ideal, most museums remain open all throughout the year.
