Sleeping at school! Something for you? It's possible!

We have an old school, in a nice small village near the sea. One of the six rooms is furnished as a guest room. In the neighborhood you can eat, enjoy hiking and biking!

So please be welcome!

The space

Sleeping in a classroom!

We are Maria Madelon & Arnold Veeman. Both artists. Maria Madelon is a painter, Arnold a music composer. We want to share this very inspirational environment to you!

More background information about their work as artists can be found on:

Guest access

Toilet, kitchenette, bathroom (shared)

Interaction with guests

It is a large building. Probably when you're there we are around too. If you want we can have a chat, if not - that is okay too!

The only thing that we probably share is the bathroom! Further you have all the things you want: a nice bed, great furniture (some even antique :-) ) a fridge, a kitchenette etc. etc. BUT MOST OF ALL


Free parking on premises
Family/kid friendly
Wireless Internet
House Rules

No smoking inside the building. There are lot of possibilities to smoke your cigarettes outside. Put the off cigarette in the trash can afterwards.

We are vegetarians and we encourage you to try it too in our home. (i.g. so please don't prepare anything with meat - or fish ;-) )
There are some very VERY good restaurants in the neighbourhood with excellent meat and fish dishes, and even pizza's! Ask us and we'll show you around.

We prefer people to sit on the toilets. You may stand, but you have to clean your own not well aimed droplets...

No pets please . . . we have cats and they don't like other pets unfortunately.

No loud music and such, enjoy your silent stay. Go out in the night instead, to watch the starry skies!

Cat(s) live in the house

The atmosphere of the old school together with the paintings of Maria Madelon everywhere makes it a unique place to stay. Arnold and Maria Madelon are very friendly people and made us feel right at home and we had the luck of staying during one of their "Toes Toavel" events. An evening with food, music and art. Everything was clean and we slept very well in the bed. The room has very large windows, might be an issue for those who can only sleep in the dark. The location is very convenient if you want to visit the waddeneilanden, it is about 15 minutes from Lauwersoog where the ferry to Schiermonnikoog departs. One of our most special Airbnb experiences so far.

We felt welcomed and enjoyed our stay in the school a lot. Madelon and Arnold are open minded and very friendly hosts. The atmosphere in the school was great.Keep in mind, that the next supermarket is 4km away and the local restaurant isn´t open everyday, when you arrive hungry after a long day cycling :) But the kitchen is well equiped,so you can easily cook a nice dinner for yourself.

Arnold and Madelon were very welcoming and helpful from the beginning on. Our big comfy room already smelt of freshly baked muffins! :) We stayed 5 nights and in the end felt almost like home. The huge room, the little private kitchen and the relaxing & calm atmosphere were simply great. Thanks Arnold and Madelon for this pleasent time at your place!

Deze bijzondere plek ademt creativiteit! Ik kreeg een warm welkom van Arnold en Madelon en voelde me meteen thuis. Zoveel licht en ruimte, maar toch huiselijk. Kwartier rijden naar Lauwersoog, mijn startpunt voor het wadlopen. En zoveel mooie dorpjes en weidse natuur op fietsafstand. Ben heel dankbaar voor de inspirerende gesprekken, de energie, tips voor restaurantjes e.d., dat ik een fiets mocht lenen en zelfs bij een prachtig concert van Arnold belandde. Een geweldig weekend!

Het verblijf bij Arnold en Madelon was uitstekend. Het 'huis' zelf, alsook Arnold en Madelon, waren een inspiratiebron! Het ontvangst was zeer hartelijk (en de homemade cookies heerlijk). Ruimte hadden we in overschot! Je voelt je heel welkom en meteen thuis. Ook handig dat we fietsen tot beschikking hadden om de mooie natuur ginds te verkennen. De tip van het biowinkeltje in de buurt was ook heel interessant aangezien ze daar veel lokale lekkernijen hadden waar we ons maar al te graag aan schuldig maakten. Vervelen is geen mogelijkheid: de kamer is uitgerust met een hoop aan literatuur, schaakbord, dvd's, ... en de omgeving leent zich perfect om sportief de buurt te verkennen.

Der Geruch frisch gebackener Muffins begrüßte uns an der Tür. Madelon und Arnold haben uns sehr herzlich in ihrem wunderbaren Zuhause aufgenommen. Die Bilder geben einen guten Eindruck über diese coole Location und das Zimmer war groß, gemütlich und sauber. Location und Gastgeber sind kinderfreundlich. Für einen entspannten und ruhigen Urlaub abseits des Mainstreams ideal geeignet.
