About Gerard Hartveld

We are Eveline and Gerard Hartveld.

Gerard is the 3rd generation Hartveld on the Sint Nicolaashoeve.

We like to give you hospitality and enjoy meeting very nice people from all over the world.

So, be very welcome on our lovely farm!

Gerard Hartveld purchased this farmhouse in 1858

Why Gerard Hartveld chose South Holland

The Sint Nicolaashoeve is working farm in a really Dutch polder.

The farm is for our guest free to visit, for sure the kids will love it!

They can “help” on the farm, play with our friendly dog Jackie.

Special for the kids there are also free to use (old) bikes on the farm.

Relaxing week on the dairy farm

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment for a family and it was like a home away from home. It was very comfortable and well maintained. The hospitality was second to none. We got treated well by the other farmers in the area when we told them where we were staying and asked if Gerhard was our host, he is well known and liked in the area. We really enjoyed getting to know the baby cows and our kids loved the recreation room and outside trampoline. There were some good restaurants in the area that we enjoyed exploring. The weather was mostly good on our trip but we did have some days of rain and even so we had a hard time leaving and wished we could have stayed much longer. We would love to return.

Brilliant for young children

  • 4 of 5

Our boys loved the animals, trampoline, ride-on vehicles and indoor playroom. Apartment nice with lovely views. Wifi slow and dishwasher broken when we arrived, but was fixed very quickly. Very enjoyable stay in relaxing country location, not far from Amsterdam.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely fantastic holiday. My son Calum who is 11 enjoyed it so much that he was crying when we got home "dad I liked the farm so much I want to go back"! I think that shows what a great place it is. Gerrard and his wife and such nice people and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. Getting to join in with taking the cows in for milking was a brilliant experience for the children. Highly recommended holiday home

A Wonderful Family-Friendly Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our American family of four (two children ages 7 and 9) stayed in the Coach House at Sint Nicolaashoeve for six nights. We had an absolutely, amazing experience. The description was accurate and the property was very clean and well-maintained. The country setting provided a peaceful retreat at the end of a busy day of sightseeing.

The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. The fully equipped kitchen was great for preparing meals. A washer and dryer were also available on site. Although we didn't take advantage of it, there was a game room available that had a variety of board games, puzzles, etc. Our children were more interested in exploring the farm and riding the bicycles that were available to guests. Each day, they made sure that we made it back to the farm in time for them to have their own down-time. By the time we left, they had become friends with and had assigned names to most of the animals, including the milk cows!

Sint Nicolaashoeve is only a short 15 minute or so drive from Schiphol Airport. We rented a car for our stay and found the location to be very convenient for trips into Alkmaar, Amsterdam, Gouda, Keukenhof Gardens, Haarlem, Hoorne, Leiden, and The Hague. We were able to purchase the food we needed and other basic items at the local Coop (grocery store) and bakery - these were within walking distance of the farm. The Coop also had an ATM, which made it convenient to get cash. Our favorite dining spot, recommended by the owners, was at De Strooppot, just a few minutes away in De Hoef. The drive through the countryside, a great meal, and super-friendly staff made for a wonderful evening!

The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful - that kind of just-in-time help that you need when trying to find the grocery store, local restaurant, or even how to find reverse in your European car! Our flights were changed several times and each time they were helpful to accommodate these changes. Our flight arrived earlier than originally planned, and the owners stored our luggage in a locked closet while we went exploring in Gouda. When we returned, all of our luggage had been moved into the house, and the two largest suitcases had been carried upstairs to the bedrooms!

I would recommend Sint Nicolaashoeve to any family looking for a peaceful, beautiful, off-the-beaten-path retreat that is closely located to Amsterdam and is centrally located to many of the tourist locations in the Netherlands!

Lovely holiday in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely Easter holiday staying at one of the apartments at Sint Nicolaashoeve. It is an excellent location within easy reach of many places to visit.

The apartment was very nice and had lovely views across the fields and to the town, it is a peaceful setting.

We had a friendly welcome from the owner and our children (aged 8yr & 3yr) enjoyed exploring the farm and watching the cows being milked.

We have recommended this holiday apartment to family and friends.
