What you will love about this home

It’s a small but very comfortable and clean three bedroom home, very relaxing interior, a garden with exuberant flowers & comfortable chairs and a lounge bench to relax in. We have a newly renovated shower, restroom and kitchen (photos will follow shortly) and we keep the place very tidy and clean.

For relaxing indoor activities: we have a small library of books (mainly classics) in English and Dutch, a game cube console and several board games. Also a TV and a DVD player and a small DVD collection.

We have three bikes available for you to go explore the beautiful old town of Zwolle or the beautiful surroundings. There is a lovely lake about 20 minutes biking distance from our house which is wonderful in summer. Zwolle is a very green, cultural and kid-friendly town. Lots of things to do!
Amsterdam is a little more than an hour away. Other towns like Groningen, Rotterdam, Utrecht are nearby too and worth a visit as well as smaller towns like Leiden, Gouda & Giethoorn. We will provide you with maps and information on things to do in and around Zwolle.

We own a friendly cuddly cat named Sam. He is totally trustworthy with kids. He is a little shy at the start but you will soon find out he loves attention and cuddling :) If having him around really is a problem, we can for sure arrange another place for him to stay.

What you will love in the neighborhood

In summer: the Wijthmenerplas, a nearby lake with lovely surroundings and wonderful to swim! Also great for kids.

Zwolle city center, with remnants of the medieval city wall, canals, pubs, old churches and lovely restaurants.

a small nearby town called Giethoorn, with its countless canals, wonderful in both winter (ice skating) and summer (rent a boat) and a beautiful lake as well. There is a minerals & fossils museumthat took my breath away and is wonderful for kids too!

Additional information

From Zwolle, there are a lot of nice and safe bike routes to nearby towns. The journey itself is already worth it, but visiting those small towns is definitely worth it too! There are at least 2 bikes you can use! We will also provide our guests with a document with different suggestions of things to visit, including maps!

In spring and summer we have a small vegetable / flower garden. We can ask you to water the plants every every once in a while when the weather is hot and dry and you can of course eat the ripe veggies and herbs!
