You can set up your own tent in our garden or use our furnished caravan. Our house is located on a hectare of private land in a village of 120 inhabitants. The lovely village of Balk is 2 kilometers away with a wide range of shops, restaurants and plenty of opportunities for all kinds of water sports.
The garden where you will stay is surrounded by trees and hedges and offers plenty of privacy. There is a roof with a lounge area and simple kitchen.

Get away from it all? Then this is an ideal place to relax. In an enclosed, spacious garden, with many hiking opportunities in the immediate vicinity. A well-equipped caravan, excellent bed (slept wonderfully) and both indoor and outdoor cooking options. Due to the weather, little use of the outdoor facilities, but the canopy, seats and fire pit invite you to enjoy the outdoors. Never seen the Milky Way so bright in the sky!

How was the contact with the host?
Excellent reception, nice people and everything well taken care of.

Tips for new guests?
There is no WiFi, so if you use the internet a lot, make sure you have a good bundle. Plus point: those who want to stay 'radiation-free' are in the right place! A blessing for your body :)
late summer? Bring a mosquito net...

Located in the beautiful Gaasterland you will find this nice campspace. Host Helene is very helpful and welcoming and the camping spot is spacious with lots of privacy. It is also possible to stay in the caravan, which is fully equipped.
The sanitary facilities are simple but neat.
And what really makes this place special is the roof with a kitchenette and a sitting area. How nice is it to read a book or play a game in a rain shower, on the couch and still be outside. And when the weather is nice, enjoying the silence of the Frisian countryside by a fire in the fire bowl is wonderful.
On request, a pizza evening can be organized by the host.
The area is beautiful, diagonally opposite the place are two estates where you can take a lovely walk and
for a more extensive walk, the Gaasterland forests are highly recommended. The towns of Balk, Sloten, Stavoren and Lemmer are within easy reach, with shops, restaurants and boat rental to discover the Frisian lakes. In short, a beautiful quiet place in a beautiful setting.

Tell us about your experience
Nice and well-maintained caravan in a quiet place near the village of Balk with good facilities. Good base for water sports, bike rides, forest walks, visits to villages and towns. We rented a kayak in Balk for a part of the day and sailed through the Luts. The awning attached to the caravan made it possible to sit outside in heat or rain. The lovely and large bed cannot be folded up, which means that the seating space is limited. Gaasterland was a surprise to us, a water-rich and wooded Friesland.

How was the contact with the host?
Helene and Sjirk received us hospitably, are nice and helpful.

Tips for new guests?
Take the bike with you for fun bike rides. In high season it is important to book a boat in advance.

Nice reception in a small quiet spot next to the house in a private secluded garden. Nice friendly people who think along with you and are there for you. Facilities sufficiently available and everything is neat and clean! Nice quiet area with lots of animals in the meadow around it. We will definitely come back again! Thanks!

How was the contact with the host?
Top! Clear language, fluent.
