A PERFECT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful week! My husband and I stayed with our two grandchildren, ages 9 and 11, for a week in April. The apartment was modern, well-equiped, and perfectly clean. The beds were comfortable. Best of all, the farm was perfect for the children. The owners have provided a lot of fun things to do and they are wonderful with the children. Ours had so much fun they preferred not to leave the farm at all and, when we did go out for sight-seeing, they were delighted to come back "home" to the farm. It was also a great learning experience for city-kids to get to help milk the cows, see the new-born calves, discover chicken eggs, feed the ducks and pet the sheep. We highly recommend a stay at Huis ted Lucht.

COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR ANYTHING MORE...

Couldn't have asked for anything more...
  • 5 of 5
We chose to stay at Huis ter Lucht instead of Amsterdam because it was less expensive, but we got much more than we could've asked for!! The apartment was plenty big enough for my family (2 adults, 4 children aged 3-8). It was very nicely furnished with everything you can need to enjoy your stay at prepare your own meals. The farm itself was fantastic. The kids had an amazing time walking around and playing with the several cows, sheep and chicken that run freely. They were invited to help milk the cows, and although they were too timid, still enjoyed watching someone else do the work. On our final day there, the kids got to witness the birth of a new calf. Truly amazing experience for them! In addition to the animals, there was also pedal cars, a slide, a trampoline and a small football pitch with goals for them to enjoy. There was also a hayloft for the kids to run around and build forts and be kids. There was never a moment of boredom while we were there! If we ever are lucky enough to visit Holland again, we are definitely staying with Ellen and her family at Huis ter Lucht!! Thanks for everything you did to make our stay so wonderful!

Owner's Response: Dear Nicholas and family,

Thank you very much for your nice message. We are very happy that you had a great time here and it was a pleasure having you here. You and your children were enjoyable and enthousiastic, so it was very nice for us too. Sieto liked it specially that the kids helped him with the milking (I think he was faster back in the house for dinner than normal because of these nice helpers:-)). So thanks again and we hope to welcome you all back again in the future.

Take care and kind regards,

Ellen en Sieto

GREAT FOR FAMILY STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five decided to stay here as it provided a great place to explore The Netherlands (Holland). It was incredibly expensive to stay in Amsterdam, so this was our next option. It was so much better than being in crowded Amsterdam.

The apartment was spacious and the kids had fun in our spare time on the farm. We stayed a week and explored 5 different towns. The kids got to see farm life (which only added to the overall experience). There were sheep, cows, ducks, chickens. There were riding toys for the kids, a trampoline, and bicycles we used. The owners spoke very good English and were helpful. There was a community washer and dryer for use by those in the apartments.

The location was a little tricky to find even with a GPS. We stopped and asked someone in the community for directions and that was helpful. The Easter week vacation was cooler than we expected, but we brought plenty of warm clothes.

Suggestions for items to pack: kitchen dish soap, dish washing detergent, laundry detergent, 1 Euro coins for the washer/dryer and rubber boots for the kids for walking around the farm. If you like wash cloths for bathing, bring these as well.

The only thing I would suggest to the owners is to add a small microwave to the kitchen (which was had plenty of other supplies).

Overall, 5 stars... we would recommend this to everyone!

A GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Huis ter Lucht provided an excellent place to stay for three nights with our three sons, ages 8, 6, and almost 2. The apartment was clean and well-kept. The kitchen was well-equipped. The deck off the back of the apartment overlooked a small pond and provided great entertainment for our youngest son. Even though it rained, there was still plenty to do: pedal cars, visiting the cows, calves, chickens, sheep, and playing in the playground in the hay loft.

The location is perfect. We had nice, easy, short trips to Amsterdam, Keukenhof, the beach, and even the grocery store.

Ellen was very helpful, friendly, and available. The listing is accurate.

Our children have asked to go back to the farm many times since our departure.

We would highly recommend it.

A GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time here. The apartment was only a year old and very nice. The bedrooms are both upstairs and the bathroom downstairs, but that was not a problem for us. The kitchen was very small, but the best equipped kitchen we have seen in a holiday rental. We took our two small boys (3 and 1) and they had a wonderful time.

We purchased the breakfast, which we would highly recommend. It was quick and very tasty. It also gave us the chance to sample fresh cheese, milk, and butter from the farm.

We had great plans to see tons of stuff in The Netherlands, but we enjoy the location so much we just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves on their farm.

COME IN UN QUADRO...

  • 5 of 5
La settimana di vacanza in fattoria ci ha fatto conoscere l'Olanda in modo diretto e diverso. La fattoria coi suoi animali e i suoi spazi si trova in un posto strategicamente felice per chi vuole visitare piú posti in Olanda. Noi abbiamo fatto gite ogni giorno (Amsterdam, Nordsee, Tulipani, Allkmaar,...) ritornando il pomeriggio facilmente a casa, dove i bambini (4 !) si sono divertiti con le biciclette, go-karts, con gli animali, nel fienile sfogandosi fino a sera. Il posto é molto interessante oltretutto per la presenza delle serre e della borsa dei fiori che é di rilevanza internazionale e che volendo si puó anche visitare.L'areoporto Schipol si trova poco lontano, peró il traffico non disturba troppo.
L'appartamento é comodo, ben attrezzato (anche se ikea ) e ben riscaldato. I padroni di casa sono gentili e molto disponibili.

We live on a farm with 70 cows on 16 km south of Amsterdam. There is much joy in life on the farm since 2010 and we have a new dimension of life: we have 6 new apartments built in the style of our farm. The location of the house to air 'is a unique place along the Amstel River, which immediately has a holiday feel. To give you an idea of ??where "Home on Air" is exactly: about 23 km from away from the beach. The nearest lake is 5 km away and the Amstel rises 25 meters for your apartment. The world's largest flower auction in Aalsmeer is 4 kilometers away and Schiphol airport 13 km. And of the four major cities, Amsterdam is the most closely, but the other three are within 3 minutes away.

Other Activities: cows out of the country, milking cows, cows enter, enter ducks, etc.
