It started with the great e-mail dialogue months before we got there, Albert is a very funny and warm guy - we had no doubt this was going to be a great experience and we were not disappointed in the least. Albert and his wife were there to great us with roses on the table and stroopwaffe ls - those tasty Dutch syrup wafflets! And it got better from there - first the location is AWESOME, close to everything - shopping, sites, train station, tram within less than 10 minute walk. And then he gives us bikes to use, hadn't even thot of that - saved us $$!! And then the place - so neat, clean, and modern despite being 500 years old - there are still wooden dowels in the roof ridge board - okay, that's my inner civil engineer speaking - but hey this place is impressive. It was all we hoped for and so much more. Thank you Albert for such a great stay, we know this was only a 2016 summer thing while you are away, but do hope we can come visit and say hi next year when we are back - tot ziens! Dank je wel!
