About Jeltje Tuinstra

Raised in Friesland and as an avid sailor I am aware of the great locations and events Friesland has got to offer. I often assist guests of the Marretoer cottage in selecting activities during your holiday.

After 30 years in the entertainment business I have changed my course to leasing the cottage and chartering with guest on the 13,5 meter convertible motorboat or offering guests a great sailing experience on my 75 year old wooden 30m2 yacht, which is also being sailed in races.

As a true and hospitable Frisian I enjoy preparing the cottage for my guests to ensure a careless and amazing holiday.

Why Jeltje Tuinstra chose Uitwellingerga

The cottage has a warm and cozy ambiance. The cottage offers all possibilities to relax, play indoor or outdoor games and do sports. Direct acces to water and related sports gives an extra dimension to the cottage, and with possibilities to rent a boat and discover Friesland trough its elaborate network of lakes and canals from your holiday home is a great way to celebrate a holiday.

What makes this house unique

Great assets of the cottage a the large gardens an the proximity to the Frisian lakes, in which the cottage has a central location. The gardens offer privacy and a spring nearby offers a natural pool with a beach, where children can enjoy themselves. Near the cottage are several typical Frisian natural reserves that can be explored.

A very nice place for nice holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very nice week in this house. The owner, Jelly, is very sympathic and she warmly welcome us. Her house is very comfortable and clean. The location is very calm and pleasant. I recommand this house for a family with 3 childrens. But take care of water just in front of the garden ! If I had something negative to add, I would say that one thing is missing in the house : a toaster for breakfast ! But It is a detail ! ;-) not very important.

Sehr erholsam!!! 👍🏽

  • 5 of 5

Wir (4 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder und ein Hund) hatten ein wunderschönes verlängertes Pfingstwochenende in diesem süßen Haus.

Die Betreuung und Kommunikation mit Jelly, der Besitzerin, war sehr nett und hilfreich.

Besonders schön war unser Bootstag, wir haben die Schaluppe gemietet und haben den gesamten Tag auf dem Wasser verbracht.

Fazit: wir kommen gerne und ganz bestimmt wieder!!!!

Een heerlijke plek aan het water dicht bij het Sneekermeer

  • 4 of 5


We hebben de pinksterdagen met 6 personen in je huis mogen verblijven. Het is een heerlijke plek aan het water dicht bij het Sneekermeer.

Prima kunnen zeilen, vissen, lezen en ook genieten van de rust.

Entspanntes Familienwochenende

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten ein sehr schönes und entspanntes Familienwochenende . Vor allem die Polyvalken direkt vor der Haustür waren super und wir haben einen tollen Tag auf dem Sneeker Meer gehabt. Aber auch die beiden Terrassen wurden ausgiebig von uns genutzt.. Jelly hat uns sehr freundlich wilkommen geheissen und hat uns mit guten Tipp für unser Wochenende versorgt. Das einzige was wir im Haus vermisst haben war eine Tee/Kaffeekanne. Gerne kommen wir wieder.
