Experience how it feels to live in a typical dutch (Holland) village! We, Peter and Lia, live here for about 25 years with our family. We are carpenters and we sell our handmade furniture in our own small shop at our property. We made our guesthouse "De Gortla".
We love to travel and be in our garden (as you can see). We know how it is to experience someone else's habitat. We very much appreciate this hospitality from the people we visit on our travels and love to share ours with you.

The space
Since we are getting (a bit) older and our kids are not living with us anymore, we renovated our beautiful workshop into apartments to share our cozy Dutch accommodation and garden with you.

You will stay in our former workshop which we split into 2 cozy apartments. There is a fully equipped kitchen in each of the apartments, were you find your breakfast in the fridge. You will have your on living room with comfortable sofa chairs, TV with internet access and dining table. The living room also contains one of the beds. There is separate storage space for your suitcases or luggage at the entrance to your own bathroom. Upstairs is a bedroom with a small seating area.

Bedding layout:
Upstairs: 1 double bed (160cm) or 2 single beds.
Downstairs: 1 single bed or 1 double bed (160cm, this is not a sofa bed!).
We can add an extra bed on the first floor, we have a cradle and high chair available.

Rooms:
Upstairs: bedroom, small seating area.
Ground floor: kitchen, bathroom, living room, patio/terras.

Guest access
The building contains only 2 apartments. You have your own entrance, patio and terras. Your own kitchen, bathroom and living room on the ground floor, the bedroom is upstairs.

Other things to note
Baby's and children are very welcome, though we do not have fences at the stairs and pond. Both accommodations have a closed fireplace.

Oosterblokker, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

Visit the original windmill at the corner of the street. Be lucky and take pictures at the tulip fields on walking distance (April until May). Go to Schellinkhout and meet the cows and the beautiful Markermeer. Get recommendations for your visit of Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Amsterdam and Volendam.

Oosterblokker, Blokker and Zwaag are a very typical villages in Noord-Holland only 35km for Amsterdam. There is an original Dutch windmill, farmlands and a rich history which we can tell you everything about, since we ran a none profit organisation to preserve local historical information.

Schellinkhout and The Markermeer (the lake in the middle of Holland) are within 5km which is perfect for a walk or bicycle tour (Bikes available on request). In Schellinkhout you find typical farms with cows and other cattle which can be visited as well. Around the lake you will find several beaches and during the summer those are the perfect spot to swim and enjoy the sun.

The area is also well know for its Water sports locations. There are plenty of harbours in Hoorn, Enkhuizen, Andijk and elsewhere. Those places are also known for its (kite)surf spots. If you come by car you can also easily visit the beaches at the North sea which is only 35km away.
