Other things to watch out for

The tower house is an incredibly nice house. The character of the house feel. It is a monumental renovated warehouse. It is a prime location and has a luxurious entourage.

For the same reason, the Tower House is not suitable for the disabled.

Charming and unique property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in the Tower House. It is a really well equipped house. It is also a great base to see the area - well located close to the shops and restaurants in Medemblik and also for exploring the wider area. We had a great time despite the incessant rain.

Meer und Hafen

  • 5 of 5

Alles war bestens beschrieben und vorhanden. Das Haus ist vollständigst ausgerüstet gewesen bis in die Kleinigkeiten hinein, selbst Kaffee im hervorragendem Automaten und Tabs für die Geschirrspülmaschine. Die Lage im Ort Medemblik ist gleichermaßen zentral und ruhig. Seltsamerweise war selbst das Parken am Haus immer möglich. Die Blicke aus den jeweiligen Fenstern gleichen einer Fotoserie für niederländische Kleinstädte und innen lädt jeder Raum zum Verweilen ein.

Medemblik ist darüberhinaus ein wunderschöner wasseraffiner Ort. Mehr Holland geht nicht!

Dazu passte die schnelle und freundliche Kommunikation mit Marius und Julia. Die "kleinen" Zeichen der Gastfreundschaft an der Tafel und der Begrüßungstrank rundeten die tolle Woche ab.

Das Haus, die Vermiter und der Ort sind uneingeschränkt top!!

Heerlijk verblijf in comfortabele woning

  • 4 of 5

Even samen een midweek weg voelde als een volwaardige vakantie in dit prachtige huis. Medemblik bleek een sfeervolle plek te zijn en ook de rest van de omgeving was verrassend mooi. We hebben genoten en we komen hier graag nog eens terug.

Marinus en Julia, bedankt voor de gastvrije ontvangst!

Schöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben einen wunderbaren Urlaub verbracht. Die Küche ist sehr gut eingerichtet. Sogar Waschmaschine und Trockner sind vorhanden. Die Zimmer sind schön eingerichtet und die Betten bieten angenehmen Schlafkomfort. Für unsere 4-köpfige Famillie wird das Turmhaus, Medemblik und die Ausflüge in der Region in schöner Erinnerung bleiben.

Very nice house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a long weekend at Medemblik and have really enjoyed our stay at the Torenhuis, which is located centrally in Medemblik in a nice neighborhood. The location is well suited for day trips to e.g. Amsterdam and the North Sea.
