We have bicycles, I you want you can use them for explore Zwolle and surrounding.


We have two Siamese Cats: Henk and his mother Anais. If possible we can arrange another home for the cats. But if it is okay for you, they stay in the house with you. They have automatically feeder machines, so you don't have to worry about that.

1 hour from Amsterdam, 5 minutes to the railway station (by walk). Near to 18-holes Golf. Near to the 3 star Michelin restaurant The Librije from Jonnie Boer. The historical city Zwolle (ad. 1275) has a lot of nice shops, cafes, restaurants, sport, cinema, museum (de Fundatie), (organic) markets in walking distance. Close to Zwolle you can sail, cycle, excellent for walking and running, there are forests, historical towns like Deventer, Hasselt, Zutphen, Utrecht, Amersfoort, Kampen.

More about us

  1. We are a couple with 4 kids (19,18,14,12) we like authentic places, tranquility, nature and good food. Mostly we like sunny places to stay, like Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Bali, Caribbean etc. We are also open to swap for weekends, send us a message with your suggestion :-) Because we are all tall, we need beds with a minimum length of 2 meters.

  2. Marjet, educated as a fashion designer is now running her own Yoga school integrated in the house, during your stay you are free to practice yourself. Herman, is educated as a business economic, currently working as an interim manager in production companies.

  3. We care a lot about our grade-A listed historical home. It is decorated with love and passion. We are a family that enjoys the good life. We are looking forward to stay in houses with a personal touch. We have two siamese cats and don't mind to take care of your pets. Of course we can also arrange the cats to be somewhere else if needed.
