Burt and Marie made our few days in Giethoorn even more magical than it already was. The area is gorgeous with every view like a Vermeer painting. Burt and Marie greeted us when we arrived and made us feel totally at home. The rental house is lovely and comfortable with pretty much anything one needed for their stay, including a sauna! Burt was kind enough to take us on a magical boat trip through the canals in the evening and I'll remember it as one of the highlights of our trip. We also were introduced to a local artist, Bernadette, who we loved meeting, purchased some of her art and spent some time with. This area is really quite magical and worth the trek from Amsterdam to stay here for a few days. Thanks so much Burt and Marie!
The lodge was self sufficient
The location was quiet to relax
Sunrise, sunset, all you wish for
From canoes, cayaks, bicycles...
Bert and Marie went overboard to please all requests
Things to expect near water are mosquitoes
Hence come prepared especially for young ones
Would definitely revisit in future
Thank you Bert and Marie
Bert & Maria are lovely owners who helped make our stay so good.
The holiday home is clean, and has everything and more you could want from a holiday home, and is chocolate box beautiful as well, being thatched & with a small protected patio area.
The house is located close to the smaller old village, just 10 mins away in the day boat or canoe, the main village takes about 25 mins in the boat to get to.
Giethoorn is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for a very good reason, it is jaw dropping beautiful! With a small number of nice restaurants in the main village, close to the holiday home is The 'Lindenhoff' 2 Michelin starred restaurant.
We had a fantastically relaxed holiday at the end of May beginning of June, the weather was really warm, and there were not too many other tourists.
If you don't like a holiday at this holiday home and in this area I will eat my hat!
Many Thanks to Bert & Maria
We enjoyed our trip to Giethoorn tremendously. Not only is the Lodge charming and comfortable but the hosts, Bert and Marie, were very friendly and accommodating. We feel like we had a great vacation and met new friends! A very high recommendation is appropriate from all four of us who traveled!!
