About the property

Villa (8 pers. 4 sl. Rooms) for families or active groups.

This original design villa (with fast and free Wifi) is situated in the undiscovered part of North Holland, where the beach is still beautiful and unspoilt in summer and winter. Many activities that will make your holiday even more special you'll find in our exclusive activities and day trips book. But of course simple things like cycling through the endless flower bulb or cattle fields is always fun too, for young and old! Only 5 min walking away you'll find bicycles for rent. The beach is magical: In summer, ideal for swimming, playing and sunbathing and in winter it is a gorgeous piece of nature with often a beautiful wild sea. Nice dining on or just behind the beach is possible everywhere. There are always nice things to do for families with children such as petting zoos, playgrounds, swimming pools and bike trails. But also for groups consisting of only adults there is plenty of action: the traditional Cheese Market, authentic villages like Schagen and Bergen (nice terraces and shops), seal spotting, tidal flat walking, wooden shoe factory, open air windmill museum, and of course don't forget to pay a visit to our capital Amsterdam!

About Eva Meenhorst

Hello my name is Eva Meenhorst. We are a Dutch family of 6 living abroad. When coming back to The Netherlands it's always good to stay in our own (spacious) house, so friends and family can pop by to visit us and even to stay over. We all love the beach, so that's why we've chosen this location. We've been renting out our property since 2010 and with the help of our representative Mrs. Stienstra this goes very well. We always ask our guests to give us feedback so we keep on improving our house.

Eva Meenhorst purchased this house in 2010

Perfect base to explore Holland

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property for your stay in Holland. The house is beautiful and spacious. It has everything you need, perfect location, quiet and comfortable. The friendly Mrs. Stienstra welcomed us upon arrival. We loved visiting the typical Dutch landmarks and finished every day with a walk on the beach. We'll be back!

House and Beach both grand and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of friends from Seattle, loved this place! We have visited the typical Dutch sights as windmills, cheese market, Amsterdam etc, but we loved the beach which was on walking distance, the most. After the walk through the dunes, when you see the wide sandy beach and this enormous blue sea for the first time, it's mind blowing! The house is spacious and luxureous; a perfect place to chill and relax. (Good WiFi too.)

All in all: Super!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in your beautifully designed house. We felt immediately "at home". Thanks to the beautiful weather (7 days of sunshine!!!) we enjoyed our days of the nearby beach even more. The seal spotting in Den Oever was great and we spotted lots of seals, even baby seals! We visited Bergen and the famous Friesian Market in Schagen which was really worth visiting! The parade was great and especially the kids in it were very cute. Callantsoog has everything we needed and we especially liked the bakery in the village. All in all: Super! We became fans of North Holland. Thanks for everything!

This holiday house is amazing. The location is brilliant, so many facilities, so much information available in the local area and lots of different things to do.

The owner was also very prompt in responding to our initial enquiry and answered our questions quickly and thoroughly.

Wunderschön eingerichtetes Ferienhaus mit viel Platz

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine super Zeit im Ferienhaus. Das Haus ihr wirklich liebevoll ausgestattet mit dem Blick fürs Detail. Für Familien mit Kindern nur zu empfehlen. Da merkt man das die Vermieterin selber Kinder hat. Auch der Service war vorbildlich. Als der Backofen seinen Geist aufgegeben hat kam die Verwalterin und hat mit einem kleinen Ersatzofen bin in kürzester Zeit Abhilfe geschaffen. Daumen hoch. Wir können das Haus nur weiterempfehlen und werden sicher nochmal wieder kommen.

Car: recommended

This gorgeous Design Villa is within walking distance of the nicest, cleanest and widest beach of NL. There are plenty of activities to do in summer and winter: walks along the beach to neighboring villages, cycling through the dunes to the island of Texel for example, visiting the cheese market in Alkmaar or walk the mudflats on the seabed, view a tradtional West Frisian market in Schagen, seal spotting from a fishing boat, a visit to the Naval Museum in Den Helder (including real submarine!) or seeing the inside of real windmills! Anyway it'll be always nice to come home to a warm and lovely furnished villa that's equipped with all the luxuries such as underfloor heating, flat screen TV and WiFi.
