Great place, very well located.

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful country location yet with easy access to the N11 which meant trips to the coast such as Katwijk and visits to Gouda, Utrecht, Amersfoort and of course Amsterdam were straight forward. Cycling and walking can be direct from your front door and the "wildlife" namely Swans with signets, Coots, Alpacas, chickens and rabbits added to the interest. The property was spotless and included everything needed for self catering. We enjoyed our ten day stay very much and Petra was on hand to help if needed. She suggested a really good restaurant "The Old School" in Ter Aar in a nearby town. We hope to visit again and would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Petra for its hospitality and house so clean, nice and well equipped.

We had a great stay in the quiet of the Dutch Nature. For us it was a pleasure to find all the farm animals after days in the touristic sites.

The Netherlands is a wonderful place to visit but what makes it special is having a really nice place to stay. We wanted to experience the Dutch way of life so we chose Marias Lust for our first week, and we are so glad we did.

The apartment was excellent, spotless, modern and bright, it had everything we needed. It even had a washing machine so we were able to launder our clothes for our second weeks holiday, not that we needed too! We loved the layout, the surrounding scenery, and the cycle lanes and local transport are spot on. We rode into Leiden.

We went and spent Koningsdag in Utrecht and it was an experience. ( a nice one). We were also able to go to Leiden and Amsterdam from the local train station in Alphen aan de Rijn, which was in easy cycling distance. The town of Alphen has lots of shops and restaurants making it easy to live the Dutch way!!

Finally our host Petra and her family are lovely, so helpful and nothing was too much trouble.

We would recommend this apartment it ticked all the boxes for us, and we hope to return one day.

A lovely apartment with all you need

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this well refurbished and fully furnished flat. Our children enjoyed being on a working farm and the trampoline!

The location is superb, close to all historical places, beaches, natural reserves and it is very easily accessible from the main road.

Thank you!

Un excellent séjour

  • 5 of 5

Merci à Petra pour son accueil, sa maison si propre, agréable et bien équipée.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans le calme de la nature néerlandaise.

C'était pour nous un vrai bonheur de retrouver tous les animaux de la ferme après nos journées de découvertes touristiques.

Thank you to Petra for its hospitality and house so clean, nice and well equipped.

Car: recommended

Mary's Lust is on the outskirts of Alphen aan den Rijn, yet right in the country.

From the apartments and from the private terrace looks out over the fields. You can enjoy the view, the birds chirping, the frogs croak and unwind.

The area is ideal for walks and bike rides.

The archaeological theme park Archeon is a stone's throw from Mary's Lust and the bird park Avifauna is located in Alphen.

In the center of Alphen aan den Rijn, you can go shopping, to the movies or eating out at one of the many restaurants. The center can be reached in 10 minutes by bike and 5 minutes by car.

The unique location of Mary's Lust is the N11 motorway within easy reach. The N11 closes at Bodegraven to the A12 and near Leiden to the A4. This can easily explore the entire Green Heart, visiting major cities, to the beach or explore the rest of the Netherlands.
