We had reserved a night in the accomodation, prior to flighing from Schiphol airport to our holiday destination. During the day we had called the owner explaining that we would arrive after 8 pm, but that was no problem, because they would levae the key for us at an agreed place. Upon our arrival we couldn't find the key, but only a note with a mobile number to call. When phoning the number it wasn't answered, and eventually we had to leave and stay at another place.
Perhaps people have good experiences with this location... this wasn't the case for us thou... so you might want to give it another thought before you think to book this cheaper accomodation.
Also this place is pretty far in the polders, so we imagined that the transfer to the airport would simply be a taxi and your car would stay near the "farm" during your holidays.
