Ruigenhoek 13 - Holiday home for 12 persons near to Amsterdam.

Unique holidayhome for 12 persons with sauna.

Are you looking for a nice and comfortable house for 12 people, to finally enjoy that long-promised week or long weekend with friends or family? During your stay you will enjoy a lovely welcoming atmosphere! The house is located in the traditional Dutch bulb farming region, a typical Dutch countryside, just outside the small village de Zilk in the municipality of Noordwijkerhout. A large part of the year, from the back of the house, you will have a beautiful view on the vast fields of flowers such as tulips and hyacinths. The wide beach of Langevelderslag, Noordwijk, is only 5 minutes by car, the dunes and the nature of the Amsterdam waterleidingduinen are practically in your backyard and within walking distance. Historical cities like Leiden and Haarlem are 20 minutes away and large cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague can be reached within 30-40 min. We use solar energy..

We like to welcome you. Kind regards, Marieke & Jan

About Marieke Smit

We would like to introduce ourselves to you. Since 2006, we, Marieke Smit and Jan van der Zwet, are the owners of holiday park Ruigenhoek. Marieke was born here and her parents have lived here for over 50 years. In 2007, the farm was completely modernized into the 10 person accommodation it is today.

On the 10.000m2 estate we built a new house for ourselves and decided to rent the 1.000 m2 holiday accommodation at farm “De Ruigenhoek”. Very old maps of waterways describe the farm and its estate by the name “Bethlehem”.

July 2013, we will complement our accommodation with a 4 person guest accommodation on the ground floor. From that date on you will be able to rent a holiday accommodation for 4 or 12 persons.

We have another other passion in Noordwijk. Since 1980, Jan owns a paramedical centre “De Praktijk” in the Kerkstraat in Noordwijk. This centre has various areas of expertise, among which acupuncture, bioresonance therapy, physiotherapy and manual therapy. Marieke works in De Praktijk as an office manager.

We would like to welcome you in the Ruigenhoek in one of our accommodations.

Sincere greetings, Marieke Smit & Jan van der Zwet

The property was perfect for our group

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this vacation home. Marieke was a warm and helpful hostess, not interfering but always available if we had questions. The home was clean and spacious, accommodating our group of eleven people that ranged in age from 80 years to nine. Everyone could find a 'corner' to enjoy our visit with family in Netherlands.

Thank you so much for your warm hospitality.

Stammtischtour Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten ein tolles Wochenende in diesem luxuriösem Ferienhaus mit 9 Personen.

Ein Ausflug nach Amsterdam mit Bus und Bahn von hier aus war sehr gelungen.

Die Außensauna wurde viel genutzt und die Abende am gemütlichen Gaskamin im Wohnzimmer bei Bier und Whisky bleiben unvergeßlich. Rundum also ein sehr gelungenes

Wochenende in diesem Ferienhaus!

Tolles Haus, nette Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren neun Personen und hatten eine tolle Zeit in diesem Haus. Es war groß, sauber und die Vermieterin war sehr herzlich. Mit dem Auto erreicht man Zandvoort und Amsterdam ganz leicht. Lohnenswert ist eine kleine Wanderung durch die Dünen. Wir können das Haus nur weiterempfehlen!
