Reviews and experiences with the “Boshuis”
2019 HomeAway/FeWoDirekt – Wiebke+3
Everything concerning the chalet was as described and as we had wished. Parents plus 14 years teenager. Furnishings and kitchen: super equipped and even more elaborate meals would be possible without problems. Location: according to the season: very quiet, very green … just beautiful. Handover of keys on arrival and departure: very friendly and straightforward. Shopping: for Lazy (as we were then because of the bad weather) everything was easy with the car in a few kilometers away. Refueling: likewise. With some small ambiguities: immediate and reliable contact by mobile phone with the landlords possible and everything went like clockwork. Despite the rather rainy and very uncomfortable weather, we made great trips in the near and far distance (Amsterdam, Zwolle, Nunspeet, Walibi, Slagharen,, t Hunt, Elderburg, Harderwijk) Have always been nice after such a day back to the countryside , In the summer certainly good to think of anti mosquito spray and cream. 😉 The music collection: great cross section through 70s / 80s / and culture. A nice pastime for the right background at game night! WLAN: a bit getting used to, but u.a. for the 14 year old son “vital”! 😉 All in all: great relaxing holiday and only to be recommended for people who like us cook independently, spontaneously live in the day and at least like to look into the nature and like to be surrounded by it.

Hans and Karin’s Boshuis is in perfect order in all respects. Comfortably equipped with all conveniences. Recommended!
Hans and Karin, we had a very nice weekend at the Boshuis. We lacked nothing. We still wanted to express our thanks in the guestbook, but we forgot that at the last minute. It was great! Both inside and out it is a nice place to stay. Thank you very much for the hospitality.
2019 HomeAway – Alfred + 1 – Super holiday
A beautiful furnished holiday domicile. We recommend. The right place to slow down.
2019 HomeAway- Petra, Dirk + 2 – Everything’s perfect
We were in April for Easter with 4 people in this property and really enjoyed it. The apartment is located in a holiday park which is very quiet and is very well equipped. Even with a longer stay, nothing is missing here. The communication with the landlord worked very well and also the keys with the administrator was optimal. We made a trip to Amsterdam (90km) from there, but also the surrounding cities (we especially liked Elburg) are well worth it. Also the Veluwemeer with its beaches is nice to swim in summer. We were attacked in April at 26 ° C by the mosquitoes, as it is in the summer, I do not know, but the mosquito nets on the windows and doors certainly have their purpose.
2018 direct -Kirstin + 2
We had a great week in this very nice holiday. It offers everything you need. Even a cot and a baby bath were available on request. Communication with the owners went smoothly. There is really nothing to complain about, we’ll be back! Tip: The brasserie in the park offers really delicious coffee and cake! 😜 👍
2018 AirBNB – Stephan + 3
A comfortable cottage in the middle of the woods in park Dennenrhode 👍. There is a playground and swimming pool (in summer) for children. Fortunately, they enjoyed seeing the fish swimming in the pond as much. 😏 Everything is present in the house and it is wonderfully quiet at night. Lovely place to unwind!
