This was an absolutely perfect country home for our family of 5, with easy access to Amsterdam, Schiphol, Kuekenhof, Utrecht, Gouda, etc. Caroline was very responsive and is a very good manager of this property. Her directions and recommendations were perfect, and she was a wonderful host. The property and surrounding countryside were almost too beautiful to be believed, and by the end of our stay, we found ourselves looking at "for sale" (te koop) signs! Plenty of bikes and kayaks are provided, and biking opportunities are nearly limitless in the area. You can bike through farmland for miles, or over to the Coop grocery store in Noorden. The train station in Bruekelen is about a 20 minute drive, then about a 30 minute train ride to Amsterdam Centraal. Schiphol is about a 30 minute drive away from the house. The roads and infrastructure in the Netherlands are outstanding, and driving was no issue at all. If you are looking for a quiet, country setting away from the crowds and noise (but with easy access to Amsterdam), then I would highly recommend this property. Our only regret was having to leave!
