About the property

Sunlit holiday home in beautiful green surroundings, near lakes and Amsterdam

Beautiful spacious holiday home / chalet with large rural garden in Oud-Loosdrecht near the Loosdrecht Lakes with it's gorgeous scenery. Close to the cities of Amsterdam and Utrecht.

The holiday home is lovely and spacious and has an abundance of light! As soon as the sun's out, you will find yourself bathing in sunlight. It is located on a holiday parc, so plenty to do during summer season but nevertheless it is truly a peaceful place where you can relax and have a comfortable and good time.

SPACE:

The holiday home fits a maximum of 4 grownups:

* 2 in the master bedroom (comfortable double bed)

* 2 on the comfortable bed/sofa which is situated in the living room.

The small bedroom is available for one child till app. 6 years old.

GUEST ACCESS:

Our guests have the entire holiday home to enjoy, including the huge rural garden with great privacy.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS:

For our guest's convenience we will not be near or in the chalet during the rental period. Yet we will be available for any questions or in case necessary.

SURROUNDINGS:

The chalet is situated in beautiful green surroundings, the Vecht and Lakes area with the river The Vecht, forests, heath and beautiful estates. The Loosdrecht Lakes are part of this area and offer something to enjoy for everyone.

There are great sights to see: the Muiderslot, castle Nijenrode, the castle village of Oud-Zuilen, slot Zuylen and the rather idyllic Vecht villages.

The lakes offer all possibilities of entertainment on and by the water: from swimming to sailing to water skiing or enjoying a drink on one of the terrases. The holiday maker who truly seeks rest can even visit a few secluded sceneries which can only be reached by canoe or rowing boat. The romantic Vecht, with it's stately country houses and castles is the main decor for many lovely boat or bike trips.

There are some excellent restaurants within app. 3 km's, both by the lakes and by the river the Vecht. Here is where you find the Drechthouse, which is always a place to enjoy both a beautiful view and wonderful dishes.

In short, if you love to enjoy the good things in life, this is truly paradise.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT:

Public transportation is nearby: the bus that stops in front of the park will take you to Hilversum or (with a transfer) to Amsterdam or Breukelen from where you'll be in Utrecht within no time.

The park supermarket is open from April until September. The nearest regular supermarket is situated in the village of Loenen, within 2 kilometers from the chalet.

The airport is less than half an hour by car and app. an hour by public transport. Pick up and drop off is of course possible on request.

Free parking on the plot.

HOUSE RULES:

We welcome pets and truly appreciate you sharing a bit of information about the amount of pets and their size so we can estimate your convenience in the house.

Smoking in the house is strictly forbidden.

We expect our guests to behave properly and keep things decent.

CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT:

Check-in is normally 15:00 hrs. and check-out before 12:00 (midday). This is to allow us to clean the house in time for our next guests. If possible, we will of course look to see if we can offer you a late check-out.

Late night check-in (after 21:00 hrs) will require approval.

About Rutger & Olivia

We are a young, Amsterdam based, hard working, entrepeneurial couple that loves the good life!

Rutger & Olivia purchased this chalet in 2011

Why Rutger & Olivia chose Wijdemeren

We fell in love with our holiday home as it truly is most beautiful house on the park. The garden is large and is an oasis of privacy, quietness and even wildlife! The surroundings offer so much natural beauty and fun activities up, in and around the lakes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first time with Airbnb. Everything went well. Olivia and Rutger are very nice and friendly. The house was simple furnished but perfect and very clean. Furthermore the place is extraordinary well located.....in the heart of the Netherlands. Easy to reach and very well served by trains to A'dam and Utrecht. The house is located inside a vacation resort and has a nice private garden that can be exploited during spring and summer time at its best. We certainly recommend Olivia's place to anyone willing to go to the NL and by sure we'd like to rent it again.

Holiday home, Loosdrecht Lakes

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Rutger and Olivia's holiday home was comfortable and well equipped. It was quiet with a pleasant outlook. It's position geographically was ideal for us to visit the places we wanted to go to, a bonus is that the main line station at Breukelen is only a 20 minute drive away. Definitely a place we would consider visiting again.

Great location, cozy home.

  • 3 of 5
Verified Stay

The location of this chalet is picturesque and great if you want to sight see in the Netherlands.

The owners are nice, courteous, accommodating and approachable.

The living room, dining room and kitchen combination is very bright and spacious.

Beautiful bathroom.

The only drawback was the fact that the second bedroom was too small to be used by an adult.

The bed and the pull out couch are very comfortable to sleep on.

Since the sun comes up early in the morning and the curtains are a light colour, we would have liked to have been able to pull down some blinds in order to prevent us from waking up @ 5 a.m.

Overall we had a good time at this lovely place.

Exploring Loosdrecht and surrounding areas

  • 1 of 5
Verified Stay

We loved the spacious, private property, lots of light from first thing and plenty of storage areas. Manager was very helpful and friendly. When we arrived unexpectedly early on our first day, she was very attentive and responsive. We loved walking to different nearby villages. The information on restaurants etc. was very welcome. We had a lovely 2 weeks and would certainly recommend this property. When scrolling down the property information it did read as though there was a washing machine and tumble drier, only after we arrived and checked the information did we discover if you hover over the list it shows a message about camp site facilities - not available in October. We loved the restaurant on site and returned to the U.K. fit and relaxed. The communications and information from Rutger and Olivia were excellent.

A relaxing place and a wonderful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the House of Olivia and Rutger in Loosdrecht very much. We had all what we need and something more. It was also good for our daughter, that she could play at the terrace and on the playground close. Getting in touch with the owners worked without any problems and the keys worked smoothly .

The area of Utrecht is well worth a visit and we recommend a trip to Holland next.

Lovely holiday home in the heart of the lakes

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't recommend staying in the holiday home enough!

We met Rutger (the owner) who was incredibly friendly, and made us feel very welcome on our first day.

The holiday home is spotless, modern and in a perfect location for anyone needing a break away. It felt like a home a home.

The place is situated within a very well kept holiday park, and is within a short bus ride to Utrecht (well worth a visit).

We had a wonderful time, and we'll be visiting again in the near future!

Lovely stay in the heart of the Lakes

  • 5 of 5

The holiday home was absolutely lovely! It's very modern and is perfect for a relaxing break around the lakes. The place was spotless, well designed / modern and had everything you would need for a break away.

We met Rutger (the owner), who was very friendly and made us feel very welcome and comfortable.

I have traveled a lot, and visited many different places over the years, but this place was particularly special. It felt like a home from home.

I couldn't recommend the holiday enough, it's a fantastic place and I will be returning in the near future!
