“An amazing place and super friendly host. We can’t recommend them highly enough! ”
“We had a wonderful time in Carina and Ard Jan's house near the sea. Very comfortable house, nice place, and plenty to do in the area. They were staying in our house at the same time. We thought it was a very successful home exchange with very nice people.”
“ Wat een fijne ervaring! Voor ons de eerste huizenruil in eigen land. Het huis van Carina en Ard Jan is met veel zorg en smaak gebouwd en ingericht en van alle gemakken voorzien. Perfect gelegen, dicht bij het strand. De communicatie over en weer verliep vanaf het eerste moment heel vlot en vriendschappelijk. Kortom, een ruilervaring die voor herhaling vatbaar is! Metten en Margo”
“Carina is a very good host. We really enjoyed our time in the beautiful house. The location is really perfect - near the sea, near restaurants and the shops. Carine is very accessible and helpful. The house is full of nice and beautiful furniture. You can see the love they put into it. We are foodies and we enjoyed the tableware. The kitchen is fully equipped. We really hope to come back. ”
“Carina’s house was an amazing base for a relaxing and fun-filled holiday of five. It is a wonderful vacation home, tastefully renovated, with all the facilities you would need for a larger family. The ground-floor of the house and the three sleeping rooms are beautifully furnished. While it may appear rather small from the outside, it is in fact very spacious. There was plenty of room for everyone, ideal for the children chilling, playing board games or drawing on the large wooden table and parents reading on the sunny terrace. There even is an upright piano and a film projector. The master bedroom was exceptionally comfortable, the bathroom greatly designed. Noordwijk aan Zee may be a popular tourist destination, but Carina’s home is tucked away in a small and quiet street in the old village center, so you barely notice it. The supermarket is just 2 min, the beach only 5 min away. There is so much to do and explore in the surrounding areas – the dunes, the tulip fields, Amsterdam, Leiden, Den Haag and much more. Carina was a fantastic host, who thoughtfully was in touch during our stay to check that everything was ok. Communication at all times was excellent and we were made to feel so welcome. We couldn't recommend this house enough. Thanks again for a wonderful week!”
“We were so lucky to book at the last minute and find Carina's lovey home by the sea. It is tastefully decorated and within walking distance of all that this area has to offer. We just managed to catch the last of the Tulips and cycled all over the Tulip Route, making use of Carina's bicycles, which really made our trip extra special. Our son even braved the sea with early morning swims and we found some lovely restaurants. Carina recommended Branding Beach Lodge Restaurant which was truly a stunning vibe. Thank you for a wonderful stay Carina ”
“We had a really super stay in this lovely holiday home - ideal for our family of four. Huge beach very close by and we enjoyed taking public transport to Amsterdam Zoo and other attractions in the area. The only thing we would change would be the addition of a comfy sofa! ”
“Was perfect for us, and Carina was super kind with us, we would come back again in the future. Thanks ever so much. Carmen”
“We had the most fantastic stay during the Christmas break at Carina's lovely seaside townhouse. The place was beautifully designed and spacious and was perfect for our family of 4. Located in a residential area within 5 mins walk of the beach and an hour to Amsterdam central. Our host Carina was exceptionally friendly, helpful and dedicated to ensuring we enjoyed our stay. My family absolutely loved the house and the area. Highly recommended.”
“Carina’s beach house is a gem in many ways. The location is convenient to walk to the stores, bus stop, and beaches. We had everything we needed and so enjoyed being at the house. It’s very beautifully decorated and feels very comfortable. Carina, being an artists, has such an eye for details, it shows very much in her home. If you are so lucky to work out a swap at her beach house, it will be a very special time for sure! ”
“Carina and Jan were ideal guests, left the house clean and organised. Although I didn’t meet them face to face I got a very positive impression of shared interests and of someone I would like to meet.”
“Carina and Ard Jan were delightful, easy guests. I'm so glad I got to meet them. I highly recommend them to other hosts.”
