Fantastic farm stay for the family!
This farm stay was the perfect place to get away from big city accommodation. The apartment was large with plenty of room for our family of four. The kitchen was great for home cooked meals and cycling into Boskoop for groceries was so much fun. Outside was a great playground, ride on cars and bikes to borrow. The animals were also very friendly! Unless you plan on cycling 10’s of kilometres everywhere than a car is definitely required. Our only complaints would be due to the high humidity in this area a fan of some sort would have made sleeping a lot more comfortable and the kitchen was missing some basic items such as an oven, cooking oil and dish soap. We definitely had a great stay and would absolutely recommend staying here.
Quiet comfortable and clean in boskoop
my wife and I stayed at this residence from May 9-20 2016. The property is situated on a quiet back road with ample room to take walks along the many canals and see, smell and hear all the wonderful sights of farm life. The property is about a 5 minute drive to the center of Boskoop where you can buy your groceries for the stay. We found it a challenge to park as the lifestyle (healthy) is to ride your bicycle to town and ride it back with your food. The apartments at Mona's (the proprietor) residence are just perfect. We had a unit with 2 EXTREMELY comfortable beds a clean bathroom, kitchen and ample space in the sitting area with cable TV. We were greeted by a smile and welcomed by Mona upon arrival. There is plenty of parking, easy access to all major routes and plenty of smiles by everyone who is there staying at the residence. If Mona ran another residence elsewhere Id stay there too. Thank you Mona again for a wonderful stay. Our best to you, Jos and your family and of course to your 2 beautiful dogs
Thank you seth and carol. You were such kind guests
A very nice place to stay in
The place is quiet, the landscape wonderful with water, flowers and animals everywhere. The apartment is clean and well furnished, we had to sleep the entire family in the same room but it was big enough. Children had games outside to play with. A very nice place if you want to visit Holland with children: major cities are not far, and you can rest at night in a very peaceful area.

Cristina Hoeve Dutch Farm Vacation
It was a very recently furnished and decorated, vacation apartment, in a wonderful location, surrounded by farms and nurseries. It used to be a farm. The barn had been converted into four apartments and the haymow as well. Our apartment was completely wheel chair accessible with a portable ramp added to the front steps. Inside, true to the Dutch reputation, everything was spotless, and welcoming. There were two beds with an extra one for an additional person (for an extra fee).
The website gave a realistic description of the facility, and services available, and the owner was very helpful.
The kitchen was well furnished with pots, pans, dishes and silverware. There was a stove and microwave as well as a refrigerator. A rack to hang clothes to dry was in the meter cupboard. There was a tv and wiifii. There is a table and chairs outside in the front of the apartment.
We also had the use of two bikes which were great for seeing the countryside.
I suggested that an English list be prepared with more directions about where things were, what to do with trash, recycling, heat, etc. and offered to translate it into English. Dutch people know these things naturally, but foreigners often don't.
I would recommend Cristina Hoeve to anyone looking for a vacation apartment in the country with kitchen facilities. I think it would be great if one had kids as well. There are also chickens and goats and some playground equipment and a picnic table.
We really appreciated everything at this farm vacation.
