Artistic large openplan living room with character furniture, artworks & books (Arts, sailing & diving). New fully-equipped & nautical-styled galley kitchen. New bathroom with generous bath and shower, and separate toilet.
Sailing & diving friendly.
The house is close to the Ijssel river and Kampen harbour (literally at the end of the street). The house is more than a hundred years old, in an historic terrace built for skilled workers of Kampen.
The house was recently fully refurbished throughout by the owner, daughter of Dutch sculptor and stone mason, Hendricus (Henk) Arnoldus Bakkeren (he did the stone sculptures of Amsterdam Central Station). It has some beautiful pieces of furniture and an eclectic collection of artworks.
The house is self contained and has a large sunny open plan living room with windows either end, dining table, large sofa (also can be used as a single bed), arm chair, tv and excellent sound system, and many books and interesting artworks.
The living room opens to a newly refurbished well equipped nautically styled galley kitchen with breakfast bar overlooking the sunny garden/yard. Beyond that is the new bathroom with large bath and shower. The toilet is separate from the bathroom and located at the foot of the stairs. Upstairs the main bedroom is generously sized (20 sq m) with queen-sized bed, chair and cupboards.
Guests get independent (not shared) use of the livingroom, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, toilet and garden/outside sitting space.
Access to the washing machine and drier is via Mrs Boorsma who has the key to the workshop.
I ask you to treat my self-refurbished house with kindness and respect.
Please take care and do not rearrange the artworks.
No smoking in the house. There is a wonderful space to smoke in the garden/yard, or by the Ijssel river a few metres away.
I love to travel and take care of people in every way I know..
I know how inportant it is to feel welcome and comfortable, and I hope that my house gives you the same feeling of relaxation and comfort.
