“A home away from home!!”

We found this vacation rental on the internet and booked directly with the owner who was extremely helpful in getting our stay arranged. Upon our arrival from abroad we drove directly to the property where the owner's daughter in law was waiting on us with the key. The place is actually a small detached house behind the owners house. As it is detached one enjoys a great deal of privacy, but it is also very secure. We arrived by car and you can park your car directly in front of the house (reserved parking), which was great. The house itself was absolutely spotless! The kitchen was outfitted with everything you need to cook and there is a very comfortable sitting area with TV (for those days with bad weather). The house is very light inside, with large windows. Also on the first floor there is a toilet. The stairs brings you to the first floor which contains 2 bedrooms and a bathroom situated in the hallway between them. Note, going up the stairs with large suitcases is a bit of a challenge and older people or people difficulty climbing stairs may find it a bit difficult. Also having the only toilet downstairs means you have to go down, should you need a toilet during the night. The bedrooms were immaculate and provided a really good night sleep. As the house is in the back of the main house, it is surrounded by large garden where young kids can play at heartfelt. Keep an eye on them as there is water on the edges. It is about a 5 min drive by car to reach a small, but complete, shopping center, where you can buy anything you need to cook for yourself if you fancy that. It is about a 25 min drive to Amsterdam. Tip: If you are planning to drive to Amsterdam and park your car in a parking garage locate one close to your destination BEFORE you leave. Amsterdam is difficult to drive in with lots of one way streets. We chose Parking Centrum Oosterdok as it easy to find, has a large amount of parking and it is only a short walk that takes you from there, past the Central Railways station towards the heart of Amsterdam (takes about 20 minutes with lots to see).
Anyway, back to the Straverdonk : Breakfast is normally provided by the owner. Unfortunately in our case, the owner was on a holiday but from the guest books we found inside, we saw many testimonials of previous occupants that all said how much they enjoyed this little place & that breakfast was delicious!
For us, Dutch family living abroad in Asia, this was like a home coming.
Warmly recommended place, do not think twice to rent it!
