“We had a very enjoyable stay in Wies and Bernard’s lovely home. The house is wonderfully spacious, light and airy, delightfully furnished, and really is every bit as good as it looks in the photos! Their garden is lovely, with plenty of comfortable seating for relaxing and eating outdoors. And the location is fantastic, with views over the lake from the front terrace and bedrooms. Turn right out the front door and in just 50 metres you’re at the end of the street with the little marina and beach in front of you. The Zeemeeuw beach bar and restaurant is very atmospheric, with friendly staff and great food, and of course it’s so convenient, being almost on the doorstep. Just 5 minutes walk in the opposite direction and you reach the centre of Muiderberg where you’ll find all you need in the way of provisions at the local shops - the Spar supermarket, a great bakery and an excellent deli. There are also a couple of nice cafés. Wies was always quick to answer any questions and gave us lots of tips on the local area which we had great fun exploring on the bicycles she and Bernard kindly provided for our use. Muiden and Naarden are both delightful little towns within easy cycling reach, and a visit to the magnificent castle at Muiden is a must. The house is also ideally situated for day trips to Amsterdam and Haarlem, and the picturesque town of Edam is an absolute gem, as are the windmills at Zaanse Schans. And don’t miss a day out on the fantastic heritage steam railway from Hoorn to Medemblik! In short, we thoroughly enjoyed our taste of Dutch life in Wies and Bernard’s lovely home. We returned to find our house spotlessly clean and tidy and that our animals had been well looked after and given lots of cuddles and attention by the children. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend a swap with this delightful family! ”

“In May we spent a week in the home of Wies. We found the house very well prepared for us, clean and tidy and with lots of information and suggestions regarding the local area. This was a short and great experience. Everything went so well. We met each other at our house. After we drove to their comfortable home and lovely garden, which make you feel immediately at home. The house is at a convenient location, within only 50 meters to the beach of the IJsselmeer! And a very good base to explore beautiful Amsterdam or Naarder Vesting, as well as some great attractions such as the castle Muiderslot. We could use their bikes. They treated our home very respectfully with everything clean and tidy upon our return. The exchange was a real success and we would have no hesitation in recommending a swap with this member. Many thanks for your kindness and hospitality! We loved it. Alexander, Jolien & kids”
Where is it?
Spacious family home with large garden overlooking the IJmeer lake. Only 50m (barefoot ;-)) walk to the lovely small beach with beach club and charming harbour with sailboat, sup and surf rental. 20 minutes to Amsterdam by car. Private parking. Perfect for a nice family weekend or summer holiday.
Great for all kinds of watersports for both grown-ups as well as children.
With the Amsterdam Castle (Muiderslot), Naarden Vesting and a number of still operating windmills just around the corner (Muiderberg and Weesp)
