About Wim Soede
I am Wim Soede. I am an engineer specialized in sound and vibration. I do not only work as a private consultant on noise but I do also help the hard of hearing people as audiologist in an hospital.
Wim Soede purchased this Bungalow in 2003
Why Wim Soede chose Medemblik
We bought this house for visits in the weekends. We bike, walk and sail. We continu to do this but in summer we also like to go to other places. The choice for this house was based on the possibilities with the water and the nice vacation park with swimming pool. With our (sail)boat we enjoy the inland waters and also sailing on the IJsselmeer. The last two years we enjoy playing golf at the public golfcourse which is very friendly to families and starters.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The house gives the opportunity to enjoy the water with nice weather. The living room is large enough for a long stay.

Wim Soede's House and Location
The house is bright clean and comfortable and enabled the six of us (grandparents with four grandchildren - ages 14 to 9) to have a wonderful time in Holland. The kitchen is excellently appointed and provided us with all the necessary equipment we needed to prepare meals every day (there was a good supply of condiments). The rest of the house is equally good and with a good sized, well equipped bathroom. The garden runs down to the water and there is a landing stage from which the children fed the ducks and launched the inflatable. The swimming pool is five minutes walk away and we also hired bikes and a boat from reception and also used the on-site tennis courts. Next to reception there is a restaurant where we had delightful grill meal. We cycled into Medemblik, the cycleways are excellent and always felt the children to be very safe. The boat we hired was electric and we had great fun exploring the waterways. The walk to the beach is about ten minutes and on the beach there is nice bar and cafe. We used the car to travel to local points of interest but to go to Amsterdam we took the train from Hoorn. There is a ticket office at Hoorn station and a huge car park which cost 2.5 euros for the day. We would be more than happy to stay at Wim Soede's house again.
It was great!
I would recommend this home to anyone looking for something a little bigger, I had 5 people, and we had plenty of room. There were 3 bedrooms and 2 toilets and 1 bath (very handy with 5 people). The house just as the photos show it. This house is on a canal, with many ducks and wildlife, the frogs at night were a delight. Across the street is the dyke and the Ijsselmeer and the regatta club. Very close is the town of Medemblik where there is a Deen and an Aldi that you can bike to or drive, and a gas station in between the 2 stores. The castle Radboude is there and the town has some cute shops and a windmill that makes flour that you can buy. There is also the steam museum close by. Wim was easy to work with and very nice, responds quickly when emailed, we did not have any needs or emergencies while we were there. Be aware that there are sometime little flies that can get in the house if you have a window open (They Do NOT bite), and then u have to clean them up. Although it is a vacation home, it was just right.
first time netherlands
we were on a flying tour of the netherlands spent 4 days at Den Breeck, Medemblik.
the location and house were perfect for us, everthing as it should be.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Wim's holiday home.
We had a wonderful time staying in Medemblik in Wim's lovely holiday home. Everything was lovely and clean and the kitchen was extremely well resourced with everything we needed and more. Comfortable beds and nice to have option of outdoor seating. Easy walk to town and nice to wake up to bird song each morning. Our only suggestion would be to have some information about where we could do laundry, but me managed with hand washing. Overall, highly recommended as accommodation.
Griffiths and Hassens
Thanks for the positive review and your suggestion for the laundry. I plan to rearrange one of the closets on the 1st floor and make a washing machine available for all our guests next year. Our home should be a place for relaxing and not for hand washing.
Ein hervorragendes Ferienhaus
Ein Ferienhaus, das keine Wünsche offen lässt. Die persönliche Betreuung des Hauses ist besonders hervorzuheben. Das Haus ist sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Wir haben uns sofort gut zurechtgefunden und auf nichts verzichtet.
Many water sports, fishing, rowing, canoe.
