Holiday Rental House
Quietly situated along the most beautiful canal of Enkhuizen, minutes from train station, town center and museums. Own house, so all comfort, for 2 to 4 people. Recently renovated. Feel at home in the nautical atmosphere of this historic little building. The Water and Fire House was built in the first half of the 17th century. Later extended, faceade renovated, but this narrow canal house still breathes originality. The well in the courtyard recalls the time that rainwater was stored in the basement, to be resold heated. In the winter I use the house and I am teach Navigation at the Enkhuizen Nautical College. In the summer I sail and you can rent my house with up to 4 people. Helmi is my support, and your host and source of information. The entire house is available for guests. Downsta...

Helmi is my support, and your host and source of information. The entire house is available for guests. Downstairs a cozy living room, with dining table and working area with desk. The adjoining kitchen opens onto the courtyard. This is ideal for safely storing bicycles, thanks to a private rear entrance. The upper floor was recently renovated and has two bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and bathtub and a closet with washing machine. Helmi will welcome you and give you the key. Upon request Helmi can also provide breakfast, guide you and answer all sorts of questions about our beautiful town. The South Havendijk is one of the most picturesque and characteristic parts of Enkhuizen. The Zuiderzee Museum and the ports are just around the corner, the carillons of Drommedaris and Zuiderkerk play their pleasant melodies, and around the corner is the first of many cafes and restaurants that the city has to offer. NS train station 5 minutes walk away. Amsterdam city center is less than 1 hour. Bike rental at the end of the canal. Free long-term parking at the train station. The easiest is to unload luggage in front of the house and then park your car at the station (5 minutes walking distance). Taxis to book by phone. More

This charming house is comfortable and well equipped. It is superbly located for everything you might need or want to do - yet off the beaten track. The owner's sailing memorabilia added a special character to our stay.

A lovely place to stay central to town and attractions but really quiet street. Town is very beautiful and short train to Amsterdam, didn't feel touristy so an option if you wanted a more 'authentic' trip to Holland. Use of bikes at the property made...More
