“Excellent holiday house for the family”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We spent a week over Easter in one of the Dune Villas at the Beach Resort Makkum on the banks of the huge Ijsselmeer in th Netherlands. After a fairly frosty welcome at the reception area (the lady behind the reception desk was obviously fed up with the queues of new arrivals) we found our holiday home deep within the extensive and ultra clean, well kept grounds of the "resort". All of us had that "Wow" experience when we opened the door and excitedly started to check out our new home for the week. The open plan living/dining room and kitchen was very well appointed with nice furniture. Nothing had been left lacking - flat screen TV, stereo cinema surround music system, WiFi (which worked). The kids loved the Harry Potter style space under the stairs which was just big enough for a sauna - what luxury! And the three bedrooms up stairs were large enough with comfortable beds and, in one room a portable sun tanning machine. There were two toilets (no toilet paper so we had to borrow some from a local restaurant until we could get to the shops) & a large bathroom with modern walk in shower as well as a bath tub. Towels had to be paid for separately. There was even a utility room with washing machine, garden furniture, cleaning equipment etc. In fact everything (except toilet paper - did I mention that already?). If I wanted to be a bit picky, the furniture was rather dusty and there were beer caps littering the patio area but other than that the cleanliness of the villa was remarkable.
The open plan gardens weren't ideal for our Hovawart dog, particularly as the whole resort grounds are overrun with rabbits - we wondered if maybe they had been added to give that extra special Easter touch. But we managed and there were no casualties in the bunny deaprtment from our side.
The location is wonderful - next to nice beaches of the Ijsselmeer and the quiet of the countryside. The pretty villages around this part of Holland are quaint and almost all have extensive canals running through them. Even the weather was kind to us - a couple of soggy days but in all we enjoyed blue skies, sun and a breeze that ensured that we didn't get too hot.
All in all a wonderful week and I'm sure that we'll be back in the near future.

Room Tip: Bring your own toilet paper and towels.

We were at Dune Villa with the family, a week, the facility was great, the kids loved it and we had the time of our lives. There is the perfect sea level to learn surfing, not dangerous at all for the kids and the temperature was perfect,everything is well organized, thanks very much!
