Self-sufficient traditional mini-house
Perfect simple house for a week’s escape or summer holiday
Nature lovers, bird watchers, dune-hoppers; shell finders welcome
Plenty of character, back-in-time, relaxed and unique
A garden with table and chairs
No luxury, no frills, basic functionality, simple comforts
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).
Orientation in the house:
The house is 27 square meters per floor (there are two floors).
The first floor contains mini-living room, mini-kitchen and mini-bathroom/toilet. The bathroom is to your right as you enter the house, another door next to it contains a small closet for the vacuum cleaner and mini-museum of Dutch newspapers from the 1930’s on the walls.
The second floor hosts three tiny bedrooms, two of them with double beds; one of them in need of renovation (therefore, staying with more than three people is not recommended).
The keys to the bikes can be found on the mantelpiece above the gas heater.
Reserve a boat in advance
Pick up the key: please contact us for details as well as on directions on how to reach the house.
House rulesNo smoking inside (there is an ash tray on the garden table)
The ground around the house is the neighbour’s premises, you cross it from house to the garden. If you want to sit outside, feel free to use our garden in the back (but of course there’s plenty of space as well in cafes on Doprstraat or in the dunes!).
Please note: sometimes the snack café neighbor moves his carts across the terrain.
Please be economical with water and electricity. The water supply on the island is an underground.
Wash can be done either by hand or in the paid launderette in the Yacht harbor.
The garbage bin is in our garden (black with a big silver 1 on it). The trash collection is Thursday morning. Please put the bin outside on the street next to the ‘Rabobank’ building (also on Boereglop) on Wednesday evening after 10 PM. If you want to save trees and support the local marching band, they collect used paper on Saturday morning on Dorpsstraat. The glass recycling container is opposite from the entrance to Spar, the supermarket. Bio-organic compost can be deposited in our garden.
Please remove the bedding sheets and put them in designated basket. Please leave the house in the state you would like to see it yourself when you enter (clean).

Reviews of this property
Das kleine, schnuckelige Häuschen von Helen entspricht der Beschreibung. Hat man keine besonderen Ansprüche, fühlt man sich wohl.
Heerlijk uitgewaaid in Vlieland. Het huisje is precies zoals het in de aangeboden advertentie staat: niet luxe, het ademt nog de sfeer van lang geleden. Wij konden er onze draai goed in vinden. Voor ons was het eigenlijk alleen een slaapplek, omdat we overdag de natuur introkken. Als je van sober houdt, is het een leuk huisje.
Reviews for this host's other properties
Thanks for the hospitality. Helen and her famiy do everything that you will have a pleasant stay. Moreover, they can provide useful information about the neighbourhood and Amsterdam in general. I really recommend to use the provided bicycle to explore Amsterdam. I hope I can stay again when I am in Amsterdam the next time.
Absolutnie fenomenalnie :) Wielke Serce i wielkie wsparcie od wyjazdu aż po same drzwi. Dziękuję !
Super nette Menschen, sauber hat für mich alles gepasst!! Gerne wieder!
J'ai reçu un super accueil d'Engelbert, Helen et leur adorable Eden.
La chambre est petite et sans fenêtre mais comme la cuisine et la salle à manger/salon sont à disposition, cela ne m'a posée aucun problème.
L'ambiance de la maison est conviviale et artistique.
Un vélo est laissé à disposition pour rejoindre la gare centrale et le centre ville, c'est le moyen de transport idéal à utiliser là-bas!
Helen's family it's amazing
They made me feel comfortable always
They take you on a night walk pretty good and they let you use a bike which it's the best thing
The location of the house its absolutely marvelous
Only thing they could improve is the wifi signal
But it's such a nice house
I liked the room and apartment very much. It's true the room is small, but the place is conveniently located, very quiet and confortable and Helen and her family are very friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to come back.
Zeer hartelijk echtpaar met 3 lieve kinderen met veel vrijheid van handelen en ook nog een fiets erbij!
