Our stay was everything we hoped it to be. The cottage was charming, simple, but very comfortable. We also loved the record player which added to the mood of the late summer sunsets, with the ducks paddling by. The kitchen was well equipped and the bed very comfortable. Harry was easy and responsive to communicate with over email and his mother was very kind and generous (esp with the extra toys). Great day bike riding trips from the cottage. Thank you for the stay, I only wish it could have been longer.

We had an absolute great time at the cottage. The first contact is a bit rustic [do not except a real bathroom, it is more a shower in the toilets], but that is what we came for and with time — we stayed 10 days — we did not want to leave ! The + - the view - the bikes - the fire place - the old-fashion turntable (and the LPs) - the big comfy bed - the real kitchen - the animals (chickens, ducks, horse, cows in the distance) - the tasteful interior - the neighbourhood (location in one of the most beautiful region of the Netherlands : Enkhuizen, Horn, Edam, Texel...) The - - eventually : nothing

This was one of our best Airbnb experiences yet. We came here from a week in Berlin, and this was a perfect way to relax. We spent the evenings listening to Johnny Cash on the record player, drinking wine on the porch, and watching the sunset with cows in the distance. We used Harry's bikes one day to ride into Enkhuizen, which was one of our favorite parks about our trip so far. The bikes were in great shape and we had no trouble with them, and the bike lanes of course are a dream. The cottage is wonderfully cozy, the bed very comfortable, and we had all we needed. Harry and his mother were very welcoming and helpful. This was exactly what we were looking for, and I'd recommend it in a heartbeat. Thanks Harry!

We had a good stay at Harrys small house. It's located behind the main house but we really had our privacy. The small stream behind the house made it even better. We had breakfast right beside it looking at the small duck in the stream, cows at the grassland and from time to time a bunny ran across this grassland. It was super calm. The house was big enough for us two. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom small but there was enough space to shower and change. There is even a record player with some old good records!
