Our self-designed (feb 2020) countryside getaway is a 45 min drive from Amsterdam, in the middle of nowhere. From the house you overlook the fields and dyke that surround the Markermeer: Holland in its purest form!

You can sleep inside the Glass House (when the weather allows), a fantastic experience!

The house is focused on a level of comfort but with fun, quirky details and a playful layout.

2 adults max + children

De ruimte
Our cottage is located on a Recreational Park with a private parking area, 1 car can park here per house - additional cars have to be parked on the dyke.

There is a car-free path leading to all the cottages on the park. There are new cottages, old cottages, some deserted, some work-in-progress...

You can take a cart (entrance of the path) that you can use to bring your luggage to and from the house.

The house is not far from the parking, on the right side of the path: a wood-color flat roof house "hidden" behind trees with black walls entrance.

The house is thoughtfully placed on 300m2 land, carefully designed & build around existing bushes and trees. There's a creek between the house and the field (guarded by a fence). There are trees and bushes around the lawn which surrounds the house and give a level of privacy (note that you are on a park, in between other holiday houses).

The house has been designed with a creative open space plan. Upon entering, you will arrive in a hallway (shoes off in the house please) . From here you will continue to the right into an open & light living room and kitchen space. There are big garden doors to let the light, the sun and the view inside. The lounge area can become a bedstay (optional 2-people pull-out bed with real mattresses).

Connected to the kitchen is a master bedroom / bathroom to the left and the glass house (optional 2nd bedroom) to the right. The bathroom has a toilet, a big vanity with double washbasin and a large comfortable shower, to be closed & locked off by 2 big doors. Bed dimensions: 160 x 200.
There is a second toilet in the entrance hallway.

There is a baby travel cot available (60x120), which we can place for you in the master bedroom. All spaces have windows to let fresh air inside.

The Glasshouse has a private vanity / washbasin. The Glass House has a fire place to stay warm (and cozy!) in the colder winter months. Please take your own bag of SMALL WOOD pieces if you like to use the fireplace (you can purchase them at many gasstations).

Note that since the house has recently been build, the garden is not completely finished. The grass is there, plants will need to grow. Also, there will still be small things unfinished.

We will provide bedding and towels (1pp) for you.

Waar je zult verblijven

Venhuizen, Noord-Holland, Nederland

It's only a minute walk to the big Markermeer Lake.
Simply cross the street from the parking, walk up the dyke, and the big Markermeer lake opens up to you.

When you walk some minutes to the right, you'll find a waterfront park, down at the lake, which is a great place for a picnic, to play with a kite, sunbath, and for a swim in the lake.

A walk on the dyke is highly recommended in the evening, during sunset, as it gets a magical touch (or early morning...).

The drive from the house/holiday park to the city of Hoorn, while staying on the dyke next to the lake, is breathtaking. We love this small detour when we drive back to Amsterdam.

There is a tiny picturesque village/community named Oosterleek (less then 100 inhabitants, there are no shops. You can walk to / through this village, also with kids (about a 20 min walk). Oosterleek is the resting place of the Wesfriese Omringdijk between the VOC towns of Hoorn and Enkhuizen.

The dyke is the starting point for cycling or hiking through a varied landscape of orchards, colorful tulip fields, pastures with cattle and picturesque villages famous for the West Frisian bell farms.
