We live in a pretty village on the coast of the Netherlands and close to Rotterdam, with the largest port of Europe. We live in a detached house with a large garden for Dutch standards (1300 m2). Our home is situated at a former dike and our house and garden are therefore sheltered. At the first rays of sun it’s already warm in a large part of our garden. In summer you can enjoy our summerhouse or relax on our outdoor furniture (including a double outdoor bed). Or maybe you want to BBQ or go to the beaches? In winter you can sledge off the dike when snow has fallen. Even for us adults that’s a blast! Or sit in front off the fireplace with hot chocolate and a nice book or perhaps relax in the sauna. And of course you can enjoy the area/surroundings with lots of things to see and to do in every season. It’s up to you!
We are proud of our home and we love living here. Hospitality is important to us and we want our guests to enjoy themselves. We hope you will.

By the way: We do have two cats, who don’t need anything else then to be fed once a day. They can get in and out of the house by themselves. It would be nice if you would want to feed them. (My parents can feed them if you are out, that's no problem.)

Our home is located in a very attractive part of the Netherlands. Close to the sea and many day-trip destinations on our doorstep. The village we live in is part of the island Voorne of the province South Holland. This region encompasses three islands (Islands of South Holland), each with an own character and each offering a wealth of possibilities.
Oostvoorne is a small and green village on the coast. It offers a splendid variety of nature and scenery, peace and quietness. The region houses one of the largest areas of nature in western Europe (beaches, dunes and woods). Oostvoorne has a lovely beach, often used for (kite)surfing, horseriding, kiting of just for a walk. The woods and dunes in our village are also attractive for recreation. The beach of our neighbouring village Rockanje is awarded with the Blue Flag and with an European award for green coastal municipalities. The dunes of Voorne extend as far as the eye can see and offer a large variety of flora and fauna. There all lots of sportive activities to do: hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, cycling, surfing or kite surfing and diving.

More a fan of cities? Oostvoorne is a great place if you want to explore the cities of The Netherlands and Belgium.

The historic town of Brielle is just 5 km away. Rotterdam is 45 km away, The Hague 65 km, Amsterdam 110 km, Antwerp 130 km, Brussels 180 km, Paris 480 km, London 500 km and Berlin 750 km. The train will take you from Rotterdam to Paris in 2.5 hours, to London in just 4 hours and to Berlin in 7 hours (http://www.nshispeed.nl .

My husband Rob (58) and I (Miriam: 46) have three children between us. A daughter, who is 33 and has a family of her own and two sons (18 and 15). We do travel with the family (the two boys and we), but we also love to spend time together. Rob is a finance director and I'm a manager. We both work for the local government. We share a few passions together, like exploring the world and learning about new countries and cultures, but we also have some hobbies for ourselves. Rob, for instance, is a huge music fan and has a collection of over 2000 cd's. I love snorkeling, discover the reefs and looking for shells.
