Medemblik might not be the first place you think of when visiting the Netherlands - but so close to Amsterdam and in one of the most beautiful regions you find this beautiful house below the Dijk and Trudi is a great host. Everything is well arranged, our kids loved Trudi, we took care of the chickens, enjoyed the view and enjoyed all activities around (playground, swimming in the lake, Fairy Tale land, the Zuiderzee museum and more). We will be back - this place is lovely. Thanks Trudi!

We chose Trudi's dike cottage based on the numerous positive reviews that she and her cottage had garnered from previous guests. I am happy to report that it exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be going back. Trudi could not have been more welcoming, helpful and accommodating, going out of her way to ensure that we had a fantastic stay. The property is light, airy and beautifully presented, with comfortable seating and a comprehensive kitchen area. The accommodation benefits from a delightful terrace with comfy seating and beautiful views (although if you have very young children be aware that it is not enclosed). The bathroom is a particular treat with an excellent shower and bath. It is spacious and light, with fantastic views and a lovely unique storage arrangement which typifies Trudi's attention to detail. Trudi has a great washing machine and tumble dryer which she was happy for us to use. In addition there is a very handy old barn which is available for drying wet sailing gear and storing bike. Trudi has a number of bikes which are available to guests. This was by far and away our best experience of an Airbnb property, and we have used quite a few in the last 12 months for various sailing competitions. The previous rentals were fine, but Trudi's cottage was on a different level in terms of quality and experience. It was a privilege to meet Trudi and stay in her wonderful home and if you are going to the IJsselmeer, whether for sailing or just to enjoy the landscape, then I would suggest that Trudi's cottage should at the very top of your wish list.

The Cottage is very cozy and a perfect place for a quiet weekend. You only have to walk a few minutes to the beach. To the next village it is a 20 minutes walk. You can find everything you need in the house and Trudi made us feel very welcome and home. The Communication was very simple and she helped us a lot with good tips. I would highly recommend this appartment.

Trudys accomodation and Trudy herself were both wonderful. Everything in the house was just so comfortable and nice, that it was hard to find some motivation to go outside to enjoy the great nature around the Ijsselmer. One of my favorite things was the terrace where u could spend a lot of time just watching at sheeps and have nice talks. Also the city which is nearby, Medemblik, is a very enjoyable dutch city where u find nice cafés and restaurants and where u can stroll through small streets and along the beautiful waterside. So everything was just perfect (apart from the weather). Trudy, thank u very much for that!

The dike cottage is completely refurbished accoring to the contemporary requirements. I tried as much as possible top reserve the old character of the cottage. I have nice old accents reapplied. Examples are the closet doors and bedside-table, which are made from old planks with special profiles or cupboarbed-doors at the dining area.

Since the children have moved to their own place, I felt sorry that the beautiful rooms were no longer used. I hope to receive guests who can enjoy this place.

During the week I work as a teacher in a primary school. Further I live healthy and sporty (cycling, running, skating and sailing).

Although I eat vegetarian, of course I do not expect that from my guests. But I hope they are dealing with respect for nature and the environment
