Amid the historic cities of Haarlem, Amsterdam and Leiden, our nice, peaceful mobile home at our home Kennemerend with its unique view of the typical Dutch countryside in a vast, park like garden is to rent. The bulbfields, coast and dunes reserve are near. 100% privacy! We like to welcome and advise guests to enjoy culture and nature.
The mobile home was originally meant for our family from abroad but never used for that purpose. The size is 3,10 x 9 metres and consists of a living room connected with the kitchen, a small bathroom and a bedroom with a 1,90 x 1,44 metres size bed, with of course freshly washed sheets. The home is not luxurious, but cosy with a modern, light interior, neat and clean and equipped with all basis needs such as ( electric) heating in the living room and a complete kitchen. There is no wifi connection in the home but you are invited to pick up the signal close to our house. For the first days we will provide bread, muesli, eggs, tea and coffee, etc., so you can prepare your own breakfast. The home is ideal for couples that like to explore Holland's culture and nature.

The home is all yours and situated very privately at the rear of the premises where we live as well. Surrounding the mobile home is a vast garden containing many interesting species of trees ( over 10 varieties of Magnolia, Taxodium, Sequoiadendron, Cryptomeria, Liriodendron etc.) and different plants ( many bulbs) and flowers. Cattle and horses graze from May in the surrounding meadows. Different species of geese are present almost all the year round and in the season lapwings, godwits and even sometimes foraging storks can be spotted. If you leave the window open you will be awakened by birds singing. The many meadows are all separated by typical ditches. Several junctions of the national cycling network are only a few 100 metres distance. Free bicycles are at your disposal. Many maps with routes are present for you in the home. We can inform you about the many possibilities worth visiting in the region.

We - Caroline and husband Wim - are more or less retired and will gladly help you with any questions you may have. Born and raised in the area with a strong interest in history, nature and culture, we can inform you about the many interesting sites to visit close by and further ahead. We like and are used to communicate with people from other countries.
Wir sprechen auch Deutsch.
Nous parlons aussi - assez - Francais.
Y un poco Espagnol.
You can make nice walks in the area as well. Walk 10 minutes eastwards from us and you will arrive at a big canal. Take the chance to see the inland boats carrying their big loads. Or walk about the same distance to the west and it will bring you to a very nice area for trout fishing. But you can also enjoy a meal or drink a glass of good wine there ( De Zuilen).
Are you interested in vintage stuff? Visit a big recycling store not far from us with many thousands of differend used articles for low prices.
When you visit us we hope you will have a great time. There is plenty of (private) space for a car. You are invited to use a big part of the garden. Smoking and pets are not allowed in the home. Please treat it with respect and leave it as you found it.
My name is Caroline and I am married to Wim. We both traveled a lot abroad and welcomed in the past visitors from many countries. I am still part time working as a teacher ( Dutch to foreigners). Wim was working as a private consultant for growers of flowers. Next to that we always had a nursery of more rare plants and shrubs around our house. This is over the years more or less transformed into a park like garden.
