PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY
The doll-house (as our children call it) is best suited for a couple or a family or group of friends of three. The house was built at the end of the 19th century, furnished in the 1960’s and more recently in vintage style, and partially renovated in 2014.
Separate from the house is a 52-square-meter garden with a table and four bikes that can be used for free.
The house is very simple and perfect for a week’s escape or summer holiday (see special rates), either for a single traveler looking for calm, or for a couple, small group of friends or family without luxury expectations. Nature lovers and bird watchers, beach goers and dune –hoppers; mussel and shell finders are especially welcome!
The house is located in a side alley of the main street of Vlieland’s only village, Dorpstraat. It is within a four-minute walking distance from the harbor, two minutes from the supermarket, cafes and restaurants. It is also very close to the dunes and the forest and a three minute walk to Waddenzee.
Please expect NO LUXURY (no wi-fi, furniture is simple, expect some peeling paint here and there, old carpets) but basic modern functionalities (warm water, gas heater, gas cooking stove, coffee machine, television, DVD player, collection of books, videos and board games), and plenty of character, in one word, simple comforts. According to those who stayed in the house, the atmosphere is back-in-time, relaxed and unique (see pictures).
The house is NOT suitable for people who have difficulty with steep stairs (unfortunately the ladder leading upstairs is not easy for unaccompanied young children or people in wheel-chairs).

Helen and her family were great hosts . She was very responsive via email and I had a very interesting conversation. She and her husband have suggested places to visit and even showed me around.

Helen is an excellent host. She has a charming family and they makes you feel like if you were a relative who comes for a visit. And besides, she had a lot of patience with my poor english ;)
