This is a perfect place in province of Noord Holland and not far from Amsterdam to visit (less than hour drive to the centre) but far enough to be in a quiet location. There are pretty dutch towns nearby, perfect for day trip, only few miles away.
On arrival the reception staff makes you very welcome and in no time you arrive to a fully furnished and well equipped house (including a coffee machine and cable TV) located just yards from water's edge with its own jetty and a pretty garden. There is crockery, cutlery in the kitchen - enough if you are inclined to cook a 3 course meal. The place is perfect for a quiet relaxation, boat ride on many waterways and canals, fishing, bicycle riding along the lovely dikes of IJsselmeer - the inland sea. You can even hire bikes, boats in the reception so perhaps some of you won't even use a car that much! There is always something to do and there some sports facilities on site (tennis court) although we have found the basketball tricky to use as it is located on the grassy area.
Check the reception opening times as it is a useful place to ask for a suggestion for places to visit, things to do - they are so helpful and happy to make your stay perfect.
We have traveled from Harwich to Hook of Holland by ferry and it takes just about an hour and a half to drive to this north of Amsterdam location.
