Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
On 1000 m2 of land, situated on an island in the lakes of Vinkeveen, we built a comfortable house of sustainable materials: wood, aluminum, glass and concrete. With an open fire place, floor heater and large sliding doors you will be ready for any season.
After a 5 minute boat ride, you arrive at the dock where you enter the garden with the outside lounge set and the flagstone terrace with the large dining table under the chestnut tree. The house is situated facing the south. The wall facing the garden can be removed completely with sliding doors that will open it up to 4 meters. The living room features an outrageously large sofa (actually called "the Island" when we acquired it) and a home theatre system with a size to match te sofa (50" screen). High speed (40 Mbps) wifi internet will make you feel even more at home.
In the kitchen you can use a restaurant grade stove, dishwasher, espresso machine and other amenities.
The hall houses a toilet and stairs that lead to the basement and the second floor. The second floor has a large master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms, all with double beds. Outside the master bedroom you will find a snug balcony. The bathroom features a waterfall shower, turkish bath and floor heater.
The garden is a great place for children to play with a trampoline and a fence around to keep them safe from the water. The lounge spot is covered and has a outside heater. At the water side can enjoy the sunset and the beautiful view.
it's a very relaxing place for a family of 6. The two 4 m. boats can be used after instructions and will take around the gorgeous lakes.

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 represents a lot of love and happiness to us, we hope it will bring you some.
About this location
The Utrecht Province 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).
