This is a beautiful, light and airy 3 bedroom/2 bathroom bungalow situated in a secluded mature garden of woodland at “de Bieselt” in the historical village of Mook approx 8 kilometers outside Nijmegen and a 10 minute drive from the Dutch/German border.
House description:: The house was built around 1970 and has recently been modernized and refurbished to a very high standard. The comfortable L shaped living/dining room is attractively furnished and is equipped with satellite TV as well as WiFi Internet connection for guests who wish to bring their laptops. There is a wood burning fire and a library with a good selection of books (Dutch and English). A picture window covering the entire length of the sitting room offers stunning views overlooking a terrace and onto the garden. A canopy can be lowered electronically for shade if desired. There is another patio at the back of the house which provides ideal space for you to relax or enjoy alfresco dining surrounded by the natural beauty of the county of Limburg in the South of Holland. Don’t be surprised to be visited by natural wildlife such as red squirrels and deer as well as at least 26 species of birds.
Area information:: With the exuberant nature and the diversity of attractions surrounding it, the house is a great base for making day trips. You can explore the beautiful Mookerheide (translated Mookerheaths) on foot and it is wonderful to cycle or walk along the numerous cycle and walking routes mapped out for you through heaths, forests and hills all nearby as well as the river Maas and a huge lake at Plasmolen which provides a haven for boating sports. Nearest golf course is at Groesbeek (within 3 km). And not to be missed is the oldest city of the Netherlands, Nijmegen.

We had 4 fantastic nights at this wonderful house. We stayed during the Christmas days and it was important for us to have a lounge and dining room which was comfortable for all 5 persons and also of a good high standard.
We put up Christmas lights and decorations and it looked so cosy and welcoming.
There is a lovely peaceful view from the huge window but unfortunately we only got to see a couple of birds.
The house was very clean, the kitchen very well equipped, as is also the rest of the house, it is quite easy to stay here for a longer period of time.
The kingsize bedroom is very large and the bathroom also roomy, also very private as it has its own door which leads off the dining room. The other bedrooms are smaller but comfortable, as is the bathroom. The house definitely ticked all our boxes.
There are a lot of wonderful walks in the area and lovely villages to visit.
Thank you Anneke for all your help and I do hope that we shall book some day when it is warmer and get to enjoy seeing the wildlife.
We arrived in the middle of the night after a disastrous journey, but fortunately we had received excellent driving and access instructions from Anneke, the owner. She had also organised that the house was warm and comfortable for us to settle in. We had to make our own beds, but that was quickly done.The house was spacious, clean, well maintained and well-equipped . We used it a base to visit family and to see the Hieronymus Bosch exhibition in Den Bosch. But we also made time to go for some walks in the wooded surroundings. We were a five minute walk away from the Mooker Heide, a very beautiful area. A lovely little break!
We stayed in the house for a month during May/June 2015 and were completely satisfied. We reserved the house because we thought it was isolated and quiet and we were not disappointed. There are no visible houses on three sides. There is one house on the fourth side about 15 meters to the right but that house faces the opposite direction and there is a large woodpile and a storage building on the edge of their property so this neighbor is barely noticeable.
The yard is filled with beautiful trees and lush plants and shrubs that grow twice as large as the ones we have in Ohio. The house is at the end of a gravel road so there is no automobile traffic at all and just a few hikers. This is one of the quietest places to sleep you will ever find.
The house itself is clean, modern, nicely furnished and equipped with almost everything you could possibly want. The only thing we missed was a clock for the bedroom. The wifi was excellent (we used Google Maps almost every day) and the cable TV had plenty of English programming. The weather was quite chilly in late May this year but the furnace easily took care of the chill. We did not use the wood-burning fireplace but if there is a good supply of firewood, the house should be quite cozy even in the winter.
There are numerous hiking trails in the neighborhood and of course bike lanes nearly everywhere you go. There is a book containing some English information on the area including recommendations on restaurants and a nearby supermarket. We found the nearby Café ‘t Zwaantje and the restaurant in the Hotel De Wolfsberg in Groesbeek to be excellent.
Those interested in WWII history will find themselves right in the middle of the battlefields and landing areas of the Market Garden operation of September 1944. The main glider landing zone is located a 20 minute walk from the house in a place called Klein Amerika. It is still open farmland much as it was 70 years ago. Don’t miss the Liberation Museum in Groesbeek and the Airborne Museum in Osterbeek just west of Arnhem.
Anneke was very professional and easy to deal with. Before booking the house I spoke with her on the phone and she told me more about the house and about her business and herself. A few days after we left, she contacted me for my bank information so she could return our deposit.
Our second visit and we were so pleased that we returned! The property is clean, tidy, well equipped and maintained and set in a fabulous location. We wnet cycling most days and had a truly relaxing time!
My husband and I traveled with my older parents to Holland to visit family and friends that we had not seen in a long time.
The villa was perfect for us as it was on one level, very roomy, EXTREMELY clean and was in a wonderful setting. The kitchen was very well equipped allowing us to make great meals on evenings we did not want to go out. We all loved it and wished we lived in a similar home as it is perfect for retired people. The location was great to take day trips to many towns and cities in the area. Grocery stores, banks, etc are just minutes away. My husband and I especially loved all the trails as we love to go for long walks in the evening.
I highly recommend this villa, especially for nature lovers. We hope to be able to return again in future.
My wife and I booked Mookerheide to be close to the "operation market garden" battle sites, the WW2 liberation route and the Canadian war cemetery where our great Uncle who served with the 23 field company Royal Canadian Engineers is buried. We were really attracted to the wooded solitude of the house. The pictures do reflect the positively beautiful location, tucked away and surrounded by trees and walking paths. Having breakfast on the back porch one day a young Deer came wandering into the backyard without a care in the world, we managed to take a few pictures before it wandered away. The front window is so large at night while sitting inside it makes you feel that you are right outside among the trees and stars. This was my first time booking from this website and it was seamless. Anneke was a pleasure to deal with, she answered all my questions in a very timely manner she was very helpful and personable. We arrived on location Tom (Anneke's Brother) and the cleaning staff were there and made us feel very welcome as they toured the house with us while Tom answered our questions about local restaurants and shopping. The Villa exceeded our expectations and was the perfect location for us to relax after a very emotional time visiting Canadian War dead. When we return to the area this will be the first place I check into booking. Thank you Anneke for making this part of our trip worry free, this is a wonderful place to stay surrounded by nature and history.
