Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
After a 5 minute boatride, you arrive on the dock where you enter the garden of 1000 m2. There's an outside loungeset and a large table on a flagstone terrace under a chestnut tree. The wall facing the garden can be opened completely with sliding doors which will open it to 4 metres. The living room with open kitchen is luxurious and comfortable.There is a small hall with a w.c and stairs to the cellar and the second floor. Second floor has three bedrooms with double beds, two small ones and one master bedroom.The bathroom has a waterfall shower and turkish bath. Outside the master bedroom there is a small balcony.The garden is a great place for children to play as there is a trampoline and a fence around to keep the children safe from the water. The lounge spot is covered and has a outside heater as we know that the summers in Holland need a litlle help sometimes.
it's a very relaxing place for a family of 4 to 6. The two 4 m. boats can be used after instructions and they will take you to the gorgeous lakes. The view from the dock is awesome and a great place to spend the late afternoon.

As the villa is on an island in the beautiful lake area of Vinkeveen, water is a great source of entertainment. Vinkeveen lakes are really deep (50 to 70 mtrs) and because of this enormous volume of water it is the cleanest swimming water of Holland. Use one of our two small boats, use the waterbike, use a surf boards (no sails), use the inflatables or use the 2-person canoe.
And for an extra €100,- a day we have a large diesel sloop available to you to use for one day, or all days of your holiday. With the provided water maps you will be able to explore the smaller waterways around the lakes, discover the great 17th century estates along the broad river Vecht or even take a trip to the historical heart of Amsterdam (a 3,5 hour boatride).
English-speaking representative are on hand to answer any questions. We are quite flexible, we just want people to have a great time.This house means a lot of love and happiness to us. we hope it will bring you some.
Northern Holland region
Vinkeveen is located in the socalled "green heart" of Holland, the area that has been spared (mostly) for urbanization by the nearby cities of Amsterdam, The Hague and Utrecht. That means it has the best of both worlds, the house is located on an island amidst nature, yet the main attractions of Holland (amsterdam, alkmaar, volendam, keukenhof, beaches), are within one hour reach.
Amsterdam centre and Utrecht are a mere 20 minutes by car. But right in the vicinity, in the village of Vinkeveen, build around the lake, there are several fine restaurants to be discovered by foot or by boat. Or cook a meal at home and get your supplies at the local supermarket and speciality stores.
Although the area is not crowded with tourists, all facilities are available. You could rent bikes and enjoy the countryside, or take the boat for a trip to the lakes. And if you are into that: the lakes provide great fishing (or so they say).
