Great place! Even better than the pictures. Perfect for chilling out for a weekend in nature. Iris was a great a punctual host.

The little house in the woods was an ideal location for our low-key relaxed week in the Netherlands. The facilities were excellent with everything we needed. The garden was very thoughtfully arranged with seating at multiple locations to make the most of the moving sun. Finishing the day with a sauna was also great - although we were lucky and had very hot weather and could see that it would be even more special on a cold winter's day. There is plenty to see within an hour or so journey of Holten, and we visited The Open LuchtMuseum, Hoge Veluwe, Munster in Germany and Bussloo lake. We also had an excellent Indonesian meal at the Bumbu Bali in Deventer. Dank u wel voor de prettig vaakntie Iris!

Unique tranquil area and a fantastic airy home perfect for small families. Well equipped and excellently positioned to explore this gem of an area. We particularly liked walking in the surrounding rural area!

This was one of the best Airbnb places we have stayed. The house is beautiful and has a lot of natural light. The sauna easily fit four people, with room to spare. Iris was easy to contact and responded promptly to our questions. The location is rural, with access by bicycle to a beautiful countryside with many farms, and also quick access to the town of Holten. We hope to return!

We were looking for a place in the nature to have a break from the city and it' s exactly what we found. The house is beautiful, big enough and really nice, with a fireplace, a kitchen well equipped and great to cook, a cosy sauna in the garden. The best was still the bedroom with big windows in front of the bed. We woke up with the sound of birds, opened the curtains and were surrounded by forest trees. We could stay in bed, watching the squirrels and birds with the sun getting in. The garden is also really nice, you have the sun the whole day. Iris left us some bikes so we could go biking in the forest, and the town of Holten is 10 minutes by car to get your groceries. There is other houses around the place so it is not really isolated, but at this time of year no one else was there so it was really peaceful. The house is really beautiful, thanks again Iris.

Wij zijn Martijn en Iris, beiden zelfstandig ondernemer. We vinden het leuk om naast ons werk achter de computer lekker met onze handen bezig te zijn. Daarom klussen we vaak in- en rondom ons vakantiehuis. Een groot deel van het huis, de inrichting en meubels hebben we zelf ontworpen en gemaakt.
En het resultaat zijn we best een beetje trots op: het is ons droomparadijsje geworden. Ook de omgeving is heerlijk, dat delen we graag met u!
