About Neil Van Hoogen

We came to the Highlands area in 1996 from Palm Beach County Florida after retiring (Show & Sell publications). We fell in love with the area and became 'accidental hands on developers' of Falling Waters a fifty two acre community....long story. We attend Community Bible Church, (one of the highlights of the area), where Paula sings in the choir. We keep busy taking care of the development...mowing, blowing leaves, weed whacking, planting flowers etc. We like to take short trips in our 5th wheel when we can.

Neil Van Hoogen purchased this apartment in 1998

Lovely spot for 2!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the highlands and staying in the Nest. Neil and Paula were so hospitable and made our stay feel very personalized. The place is very clean, quiet, and restful. We can't wait to come back!

The perfect hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, quiet, serene - there's not a more perfect place to 'get away'. Definitely a place we'll return to. Paula ≠il are the perfect hosts. And, the location is offers the best of both - convenient to Highlands while in the mountains.

THERES NO PLACE LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived it by far exceeded our expectations , so well put together down to the cutest of details. Very clean , comfortable and so relaxing of a place to stay for holiday or for any reason. We didn't want to leave. It feels as though u r home. The owners Paula and Neil are most wonderful people to meet and deal with on anything u may need during your stay. I wanted to adopt them as my own family members. You wont be disappointed in anything about this nest for two. It also is a very close drive to downtown Highland which offers great dining, shopping and such a great downtown atmosphere of the little quaint town that everyone is helpful and friendly. Loved it. We took in the New Year at a most wonderful place called Paolettis it was the best. Also tried Wolfgang , Ugly Dog and Wild Theme,. Don't miss out try them all. However finding Paula and Neil's nest for two completed the trip to its fullest. So very beautiful grounds all around to explore. Come and give a try u wont be disappointed in the least. Thank u so much Paula and Neil.

Owner's Response: Young or old(er) couples seem to just melt into the nest. How fun it is to meet most of them. We try to give them their space, unless they want to talk. Then, we're happy to share our favorite spots and neat local shopkeepers and chefs. Love to hear THEIR stories as well!
