Our Geothermal keeps the temperature at 21-22 degrees Celsius in the winter, so you may not be comfortable in just a t-shirt. Please do not adjust the thermostat or let us know in advance if your require warmer temperatures. During the winter, please do not open the windows since the geothermal can't keep up with a constant cold breeze blowing in. During the summer, open the windows wide during the evenings to smell the fresh country air and close them during the day if it is hot.
No smoking. No pets.
Please enjoy the terrace which is shared and we ask that you don't play music outdoors.

Melinda and I love to meet people and to create a "gezellig" (a Dutch word that means aesthetically pleasing and social and convivial and cosy) atmosphere for our guests. My business provides lots of opportunity to travel and we have enjoyed so much hospitality from hosts around the world that we would like to return that same hospitality. I am a career data professional and a passionate, obsessive amateur architect and urban planner.
