Loved Our Stay
Gijs’s home proved ideal for our family group of 10 (6 adults and 4 children) on a 4-day visit in Utrecht. The location is terrific! While it’s convenient to a bus stop, we could, and did, walk to all the attractions we wanted to visit, including the Dom tower, Speelklok museum, Saturday flower market, and Grift park, as well as to and from Centraal Station for several out-of-town forays. The neighborhood has plenty of charm, with even more nearby as you wander into still older parts of the city. There’s a handy selection of shops and restaurants as well. The house was comfortable with very adequate amenities. Kids were delighted with the play room. Gijs, though not around during our stay, was a very accommodating, available, and helpful host. Much appreciated were the information and recommendations he sent in advance. We took good advantage of several of the latter.
Modern appliances and technology
This home was not cluttered with "stuff" .
Kitchen is a good working kitchen should you want to cook. We did use it when we all 8 of us did not not wanting to go out
We were there during a heat wave and we dreamed of a fan. Yet in most bedrooms cool air was to be found at night. Somehow the way it is built you can sense air flowing up and out
Top floor master has windows on all sides
I was not interested in that room due to fact there was no toilet on that floor. There was a beautiful bath tub for soaking in
Otherwise there was a toilet on all other floors.
Owner did supply extra single beds so that only couples had full sized beds
Location was good
15 minute walk to city center where busses are.
Local shops and restaurants abound. Movie theatre close by... nice place. We saw momma Mia part 2
Every morning I walked to the bakery and we enjoyed croissants for breakfast.
Outstanding home to entertain family.
The home is well appointed, great location, and a fun home for children. Utrecht is a beautiful and interesting town.
Thank you Jonathan, it was a pleasure hosting you and your family!
Super modern house in the city.
We had a blast at the apartment. So hip and modern and a great location. Lots of modern conveniences. The upstairs loft master is beautiful but I wish in all that space it had a toilet since the stairs are so steep. We never met Gijs but he was very prompt in answering any questions.
Incredible house and excellent hospitality
Gijs was an amazing host, checking in with us before and during our stay. The house is renovated beautifully and includes very modern amenities (nice fireplace, Alexa device for music and lighting, heating system, coffee machine, dishwasher, washer/dryer, oven, etc.). The top floor loft is indeed very beautiful with an awesome view over the city. We were a large group (9 adults and 1 baby), and this place easily fit us all and was very kid-friendly. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals for the 10 of us (large fridge, freezer, sharp knives, silverware, cups, plates, cooking pots and pans, etc.). In the dining room, there's a wonderful, large table which we could all gather around for meals and games (even with a baby chair). Just next to this is a big couch and a nice place to lounge. In two of the rooms, we had two king-sized beds, with one having a baby bed that Gijs arranged for us. Two other rooms had two twin-sized beds pushed together, which worked fine (one minor thing was that in one of these rooms, the two beds were a different height, maybe 2 inches or 5 cm), and the last room had a single twin-sized bed.
The neighborhood was very nice and calm, with restaurants and little shops nearby. The best thing was having a supermarket just around the corner (not even a 2-minute walk)! We were within walking distance to the downtown area (it took us maybe 15 minutes to walk to the Dom tower).
We really felt at home here, so it was a perfect place for our family to celebrate Christmas (Gijs even had a decorated Christmas tree up, making it even more cosy). He really put a lot of effort into ensuring our comfort. Coming back to Utrecht, we will definitely look for this place!
Wunderschönes Haus mit unkompliziertem Aufenthalt
Es handelt sich um ein wunderschönes (für uns typischen niederländischen) Altbau in einer super Gegend in Utrecht. Dank unseres Vermieters Gijs, der bei Fragen schnell und zuverlässig Antwortete und total unkompliziert ist, hatten wir eine wunderschöne Woche in Utrecht. Hilfreich waren auch die Tipps für Utrecht von Gijs, die wir vorab erhielten.
Wir, dass waren drei Frauen und drei Männer hatten mehr als genug Platz in den zur Verfügung stehenden Zimmern. Durch die drei Duschmöglichkeiten und die drei Toiletten (zwei davon separat) gab es keinen "Stau".
Die zur Verfügung stehenden Betten waren sehr bequem und für unsere Körperlängen (1,83 - 2,00m) ausreichend.
Die Küche bot alles, was wir benötigten. Der lange Esstisch bot ausreichend Platz für alle und alles :-).
Das Haus selbst liegt in unmittelbarer Nähe mehrere Supermärkte, Bäcker und Restaurants. Frische Brötchen am morgen oder ein spontanes Kochevent waren dadurch kein Problem. Nicht kochen noch weniger aufgrund der großen Auswahl an unterschiedlichen Restaurants.
Außerdem ist es fußläufig kein Problem in die Innenstadt oder zum Bahnhof.
Wir können dieses Haus auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.
Gijs: Vielen Dank für unseren wunderschönen Aufenthalt!!!
