We tried to give a different touch to this guesthouse.. The interior is cosy and a mixture of vintage and design. 19th century portraits on the wall, cool construction plates on the floor and walls, it gives a different but cool and authentic touch.
As a guest you are surrounded by the tranquility of the countryside and a wide landscape. You are staying close to the ‘Friese Waddenkust’ which has been proclaimed as the most beautiful nature reserve of The Netherlands. You are so close to Schiermonnikoog or Ameland, Moddergat, Nationaal Park Lauwersmeer etc. Having a long walk, cycling or just relax…whatever you want to do..do it!

I will never forgot a group of female friends..They enjoyed their stay so much..They started dancing in front of the house after checking out. So nice to have such spontaneous people enjoying our hospitality.
What is your favourite part of your job / activity?
It is so special and nice to host all these people, coming from different places, background…Wherever they are coming from or whoever they are…They are seeking one thing : relaxing in a superb setting. Dolce far niente…
I enjoy the feeling when they tell us how much they enjoyed their stay, they feel at pace. And most of them come back a second time or more. Then we know for sure they feel all right and our passion has found a place in their lifes..
