The place was clean, well located and exactly as described. I would have given it 5 stars, except there were some additional charges that weren't expected. An extraordinarily high cleaning bill, an extra charge for towels and zero amenities...not even dish soap. Being international travellers, we couldn't travel with these extras and so we had to buy everything and leave most of it behind. I travel 3 to 4 times per year staying in airbnbs, and I found this unusual. Most places leave the basics...especially towels! Otherwise, it's a lovely place. Teri from Canada
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
