Cosy old guesthouse (anno 1862)
|Address||Zomerstraat, 4437AE Ellewoutsdijk, Netherlands|
|Response time||A few hours|
The rooms are just big enough (yet a bit low), and the space was used very efficiently: the place has its own kitchen, bathroom with shower and a separate toilet. There is an open stairs to the attic, with a good quality double bed, and room for 2 more beds. The couch downstairs can be turned into a double bed as well. There is basic equipment, normal size fridge and separate freezer, you have a separate hot water and central heating system.
The fenced garden has some nice sunny spots to relax, as well as a toy castle and wooden tower with slide for the kids. End of the street is our small village harbour where you can swim in the sea arm Westerschelde.
Within 3 minutes walk, there is a great, safe and green public playground. The nearest sandy beach is about 10 car minutes, a lovely place - great for families. The area is furthermore wellknown among hikers and bikers for its beautiful landscape, quiet and peace.
As you may read in the reviews, we unfortunately had some problems with the freezer and the toilet. The first one has been replaced and the sewer system has been completely renewed. We are very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused to our previous guests.
We are not a 3-star hotel, but we try to do everything as good as we can. Unfortunately, we have also had one rude and unreasonable guest, from whom we hope you will not believe the review. We can not defend against this, only hope that you understand that a cat hair on the back of a (vaccuumed!) sofa coushin is possible in a place where pets are allowed. Other allegations are at the same level.
We hope to welcome many more great guests who can see the charm and not the negative side of a small but cozy house from the year 1862.

Reviews of this property
Great stay at Sonja and Koenraad's.
The place is very clean, absolutely cozy and they will help you with any question you have.
Thank you again for a lovely first trip to Nederland.
Sonja and Conrad are welcoming and friendly. The guest house looks cozy and cozy. Unfortunately, we went home early because the property was not suitable for us. The ceiling was too low for my friend who is 1.95 m. Myself (1.80 m) also found it on the tight side. We could see the door of the toilet did not close because our legs were against it. Very sorry!
Sonja en Koenraad zijn gastvrij en vriendelijk. Het gastenhuisje ziet er knus en gezellig uit. Helaas zijn we eerder naar huis gegaan omdat de accommodatie voor ons niet geschikt was. Het plafond was te laag voor mijn vriend die 1.95 m is. Ikzelf (1.80 m) vond het ook aan de krappe kant. We konden de deur van het toilet niet sluiten omdat onze benen er tegenaan zaten. Heel jammer!
Our sojourn at Koenraads apartement was very fine and restful.
The house is cute and offers all that is necessary. Everything was tidy and orderly. Koenraad and his family are very friendly and helpful.
All in all, the guesthouse is well advisable.
I cannot understand why the last two reviews for this accommodation are so negative! We stayed with Koenraad and Sonja a few weeks ago and everything was perfectly fine! Koenraad and Sonja were very, very nice and gave us tipps where to go and what to see. The guesthouse itself was really cute. Of course it's small, but unless you're not a 2m-giant it's no problem at all. Everything was clean, the toilet functioned perfectly well, and there was not a single animal-hair in the house. There's all you need to have a comfortable stay: a small but fully equipped kitchenette with a gas-stove, a huge fridge, a coffee-maker (and no mouldy coffee!), a TV, a bath, a garden and a very comfy bed upstairs (right below the roof). You do need a car to get there and around because the little village is quite far from the next bigger town, but it's heavenly quiet there. We enjoyed it very much!!
Nice, personal touch! Simple living.
Netter, persönlicher Kontakt! Einfaches Wohnen.
Everything was perfect! Koenraad and his family (and the dogs are very friendly :) and Koenraad has the best russian ouzo in the whole netherlands ... . The little house is comfortable and clean and has everything you need. We would always recommend it! Everything was great! Koenraad and his family (and the dogs :) are very friendly and pleasant hosts and Koenraad has the best Russian ouzo from all over Holland.

Alles war super! Koenraad und seine Familie (und die Hunde :) sind sehr freundliche und angenehme Gastgeber und Koenraad hat den besten russischen Ouzo von ganz Holland. Das kleine Haus ist gemütlich und sauber und hat alles was man so braucht. Wir würden diese Unterkunft immer weiter empfehlen!
We liked it very well, but the weather was, in bad weather, it could be problematic, since the apartment is very small and not necessarily invites to Drinnensein. The landlord himself we do not know that mom had taken over the care and was very nice and friendly. The apartment is ideal for vacationers who do not provide the highest standards of accommodation and are satisfied with modest means
Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen, allerdings hat das Wetter mitgespielt, bei schlechtem Wetter,könnte es problematischer werden, da die Wohnung sehr klein ist und nicht unbedingt zum Drinnensein einlädt. Die Vermieter selbst haben wir nicht kennengelernt, die Mutti hatte die Betreuung übernommen und war sehr nett und freundlich. Die Ferienwohnung ist gut geeignet für Urlauber, die nicht allerhöchste Ansprüche an eine Unterkunft stellen und auch mit bescheidenen Mitteln zufrieden sind
ashamed to rent an apartment so dirty! urine of animals in the hall of the house! Sofa filled with dog hair, moldy coffee, wholesale unhygienic I 've never seen anything like it in my life! It should not exist! we did not stay and had to look for a hotel at the last minute. I recommend to everyone! more than mediocre!!
honteux de louer un logement aussi sale!! urine d'animaux dans le hall de la maison!! Canapé rempli de poils de chien, café moisit, gros manque d'hygiène je n 'ai jamais vu ca de ma vie!!! Ca ne devrait pas exister! nous ne sommes pas resté et devions chercher un hotel à la derniere minute. Je le déconseille à tout le monde!! plus que médiocre!!!!!
The annex to the house where we stayed looked like a home for dwarfs. Everything was small and uncomfortable, especially the room or the bed was a little convenient accessibility. Freezer set at our disposal did not work. But do not lay still more uncomfortable: the worst was the toilet: not once we could not flush the toilet without fear of flooding the room even after a simple pee and you can not imagine the difficulty we tested whenever he had evacuated the rest. The worst part of the story is that the problem was known to the owners because they offered us one of their host recommendations written in four languages to throw toilet paper use in the outdoor trash. It was their only way to solve this problem. In summary, this is a place we will not return.
L'annexe de la maison que nous avons occupée ressemblait a une maison pour des nains. Tout y était petit et peu confortable, surtout la chambre ou le lit double était d'une accessibilité peu pratique. Le congélateur mis a notre disposition ne fonctionnait pas.
Mais la ne résidait pas encore le plus inconfortable : le pire était la toilette : pas une fois nous n'avons pu tirer la chasse sans craindre l'inondation de la pièce même après un simple pipi et vous ne pouvez imaginer la difficulté que nous avons éprouvée a chaque fois qu'il fallait évacuer le reste. Le pire dans l'histoire est que le problème était connu des propriétaires car ils nous proposaient parmi leurs recommandations d'accueil écrites en 4 langues de jeter le papier de toilette usage dans la poubelle extérieure. C'était la leur seule façon de résoudre ce problème.
En résume, c'est un endroit ou nous ne retournerons pas.
An incredibly beautiful little place, quiet and very relaxing. Explore the area, also ideal for cycling. Our hosts very accommodating and friendly, an easy coexistence with humans and animals. Simply a place to relax!
Ein unglaublich schöner kleiner Ort, ruhig und sehr erholsam. Die Gegend wunderbar, auch ideal zum radfahren. Unsere Gastgeber sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich, ein problemloses Miteinander mit Mensch und Tier. Einfach ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen!
