About this campspace

Let's introduce ourselves,
We are Melvin and Angelina

We have been living in a very special place in Nigtevecht since September 1, 2020.

A stone's throw from the Vecht.
And the canal connecting with our backyard.

It is so special that our house has been a ponder house.
From here the pound went for years over the Amsterdam Rhine Canal, which on average thousands of ships sail over each year.

We like to share our happiness and special place.
By means of 3 to 4 camping / camper spots, and our special Mongolian yurt and hippy caravan.

The special thing and our goal is that everyone enjoys the great place and especially tranquility.

With additional bookings possible of chair massage / hairdresser visit / supping / food and drink / sauna and jaccuzi.

We hope to welcome you soon!

Warm regards Angelina and Melvin

Introduce,
We are Melvin and Angelina

We have been living in a very special place in Nigtevecht since September 1, 2020.


A stone's throw from the Vecht.
And the canal connecting to our backyard.

It is so special that our house has been a pounder's house.
From here, the pound crossed the Amsterdam Rhine Canal for years, where on average thousands of ships sail per year.

We like to share our happiness and special place.

Through camping/parties and parties large and small.

We work together with local entrepreneurs to bring out the best in Nigtevecht and the surrounding area.

The special thing and our goal is that everyone enjoys the great place and especially peace.

With additional bookings possible for chair massage / hairdresser visit / supping / food and drinks / sauna and jacuzzi.

We hope to receive you soon!

Warm regards Angelina and Melvin

Tips

  • Get a delicious cheese at the cheese / ice cream farm by bike or rent a sup from us.

  • The sunset on fort Nigtevecht is breathtaking, from the jaccuzi it is a double pleasure!

Tell us about your experience
Yes, very nice place! Lovely people, beautifully situated on the water. You must like to live a more primitive life and with ambient sounds (shipping) that you are not used to. I think that's the great charm! Definitely recommended, they have a diverse range (caravan, jourt, camper place, tent places). Awesome!

How was the contact with the host?
Fine! Nothing to complain about, very nice people, could borrow a backpack, you could grab eggs from the special chickens, unfortunately they had not laid anything ...

Tips for new guests?
See for yourself, open yourself up to a special alternative place. Enjoy the rippling water of the canal.

Tell us about your experience
The camping space is cute and has room for 2-3 cars.
It's location is nice on the canals but not the most quiet, since there are lots of ships driving but we liked it anyhow.
The view in the morning is perfect and it's close to Amsterdam.
The toilet is okay and the sanitary rooms will be upgraded soon, so showers and cleaning your dishes will be more easy, for now it's okay to use.
If we come back to Amsterdam we will definitely stay here again.

How was the contact with the host?
The owners are really nice and speak English and even a bit German.
They asked if we need anything and were helpful with advice.
Also they provided us with a good coffee in the mornings ❤️

Tips for new guests?
If you plan to stay with a van of a rooftop tent you will be having a good time, with a caravan it will be quite difficult because the entry is very narrow.
So there is only one space for a tent as of now.
Also the pictures are not exclusively from the plot but also from the village and surrounding places.

We spent 1 night at this fantastic mini-camping.
The facilities are basic but function excellently and are neatly clean.

Even before we arrived at the campsite we were invited to join the fight, which we obviously did not decline.
When we returned, we relaxed in the hot tub and ended with a beer at the fire barrel.

For us it was like a day of festival but different.

Thank you Angelina!

Although she was actually fully booked, Angelina made it possible for us to stay overnight on her property. Nothing could be done in the greater Amsterdam area. Angelina helped us a lot with that and we are grateful for that. Of course, the makeshift Dixi toilets aren't great, so I have to deduct a star for that. Better sanitary facilities for the guests are under construction. Everything else is great: the location near Amsterdam, at the harbor with the great swimming area and above all the hostess herself. Good luck! 🍀

Tips for new guests?
The new sanitary building for guests should be ready in October 2023. Then definitely 5*

the view was nice and the camping site was very cozy, the only minus was the construction noises in the morning and the ships going by, but it wasn’t too disturbing. also there was only one shower & bathroom, but there wasn’t too many people so the wait time wasn’t long.

Had a wonderful weekend in a special place. Enjoyed the jacuzzi which can be booked separately for an hour. There is always plenty to see of ships passing by on the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal. You can make a fire in the evening, wood can be bought from them. Plumbing is a bit primitive, but fine if you're not too demanding. The area invites for beautiful cycling and walking tours.

What a very nice experience in a special place.

A few camping spots have been made in a nice spot behind their house. We camped next to the canal and had the freedom to light a fire, BBQ while being entertained by all the boats that passed by.

Keep in mind that those boats do make noise of course and they also sail at night. Also be aware that the toilet is a Dixie. I think that's also the biggest drawback of the place. It would be nice if there was an alternative for this.

And we really enjoyed the jacuzzi during sunset. It is a place with a lot of freedom where you can really enjoy a holiday just a stone's throw from Amsterdam.

How was the contact with the host?
A friendly host who responds quickly and where much is possible.

August 2021 · Translated from dutch

How nice, thank you for your response.
Unfortunately, installing sewers is too far and too low. Also, fixed sanitary facilities are not allowed by the municipality.
Hence the dixie toilet.
It is also in the description and the video that we send in advance.
We clean it daily.
And is also cleared several times. Therefore a nice alternative.
Glad you continued to enjoy it!

Beautiful spot on the water on the edge of the idyllic village Nigtevecht, located on the Vecht. A perfect base to explore the area on the water, well worth it! The area is also a pleasure to explore on foot or by bike.
The owners of this lovely little place are very welcoming and friendly. Inviting with possibilities to rent a standup paddle board, the jacuzzi, suptour, a yoga class (on the water), or even a haircut. A beautiful garden where 2 camping spots have an unobstructed view over the Amsterdam Rhine Canal, where a freighter regularly sails over or is moored at the berth.

Our experience was fine. The place was beautiful on the water. The village was cute and the owners were nice. For us it was a fine stay for one night, but it did not fully meet our expectations. In the description and in the photos it was not described that there was a dixie toilet and a plastic shed as a shower as sanitary. 'Peace' was also described, but there was an inland vessel next to our place that made continuous noise. We thought we were on the Vecht, but that turned out to be the Amsterdam-Rhine Canal, where inland vessels sailed continuously. We didn't find that so annoying in the end because you can't believe your eyes, but the peace they described was not quite right. Furthermore, we found it a bit scary that there was no gate to our camping spot and that it was open to get there from the public road. It would give us more security if there was a fence in front of our place.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact with the host was very good! They were both very sweet and hospitable and they were happy to help us. Really lovely people! Their dogs occasionally escaped and were suddenly in our tent, which we didn't like, but they were nice people and they had sweetly brought us tea on arrival and a sandwich in the evening. The contact was good!

Tips for new guests?
It is good for the next guests to know that the sanitary facilities are in a dixie, but despite that they are clean and the shower is nice. With a large tent you just fit on the spot. And take into account the many ships that pass by and the ships that lie ashore next to the tent.

Hello Angelina,
Thank you for your message. You weren't there when I left that's why I couldn't say hello anymore.
Unfortunately I am not really charmed by your campsite. The price is not in proportion to what is offered. An expensive place for a small piece of grass, a dixie that had to be shared with 11 people. A Dixie shower where you stand in a large puddle of water. A dangerous Elec connection outside and a disorder on the terrain.
Especially and I have to say that I feel sorry for the family from Colombia. They told me what they pay for the yurt and how they sleep in it. I really hope you can still help them financially with this.

How was the contact with the host?
A kind woman

Tips for new guests?
Do not book if you like peace, space and order.

Dear Saskia.
After reading your review after our telephone conversation, you completely understood our side.
I'll explain this in more detail:
You arrived 13:45 without announcing instead of the agreed 15 hours.
Where we do our very best between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to get everything perfect every time. And I had another appointment that prevented me from checking you in earlier.
* I was there at exactly 3 pm to check you in and you were with 3 people instead of 1 without discussing whether that was possible in advance.
In addition, a small contribution is normal for extra guests at each campsite.
I didn't count that for you.

* you were also giggling and filming extensively on our site.
Which is actually not allowed by law.
But because I assume the good of people and you film all the positive things such as the beautiful view / the special place and the special accommodations.
It is a pity that this is not reflected in your review, but only negatively.
That says more about you.

Also booked the family in the yurt via rbnb who pay an extra 85.00 commission to their guests on the booking and unfortunately we can't do anything about it.
Converted, this family had paid 17 per person per night including mattresses / bedding / towels and everything that is in the yurt.
By the way, the family you are talking about has left a 5 star review.
So what you say I don't know where that comes from.

* we find it very sad to read things like this.
We do everything with passion and love.
And these are hardworking people who just want to make everyone feel comfortable (and almost beg in advance at check-in to let us know immediately what you don't like during your stay.
You didn't.
Also not after my phone call to ask after departure without saying hello to ask if everything was ok.
But no, you prefer to speak to someone without someone personally.
Give a bad review as soon as possible.

I find that very sad and especially sad for you that you were not able to fully enjoy the great place.

Certainly not a normal campspace guest who is always so enthusiastic.

Unfortunately, there was little to notice from the stated quiet place, where we went.
The price ratio to the accommodation offered was also disproportionate.

How was the contact with the host?
The host was too commercial.

Host angelina has responded

I'm sorry you experienced it that way.
Fortunately, your husband was very happy, but unfortunately he left because of your decision.

I wanted to give you money back precisely because we want people to enjoy with us and not be commercial.
But you said no, my decision is to leave I see that you are trying very hard.
So I think that's great.

Now you write something different than you said when you left.
Because you weren't going to write a review....
But everything is free with us, we like to hear from the people themselves, if something is not nice, we are happy to solve it right away.

Sorry you had a lesser experience.
While you were the only one on the campsite.
And just had all the space and tranquility.
We wish you all the best.
Warm greetings from nigtevecht

Contrary to what is stated in the text, it is not a place of rest. The big ships make a lot of noise. Luckily I had earplugs with me and they were needed at night.
In addition, we did not find the shower and especially the toilet (dixi) very pleasant, so that afterwards we found the costs for the overnight stay (€30.00 + €7.00 service costs) too high.
The jacuzzi in the evening was lovely.

How was the contact with the host?
The contact with Angelina was fine. We received a warm welcome.

Tips for new guests?
Bring earplugs

Host angelina has responded

What a shame Anja that you experienced it that way.
The text states that the campsite is located on the Amsterdam Rhine Canal.
Sometimes it is quiet, sometimes it is busier in terms of boat traffic.

We will send a video in advance in which the sanitary facilities are clearly explained and it is all clean and tidy.
I'm sorry you experienced it that way.
You did not indicate this during your stay and at the end of the Conversation.
Booking fee is for campspace.
But thank you for your review.

Glad you continued to enjoy it.
Warm greeting Angelina and Melvin van neighborhood

Tell us about your experience
Unfortunately .. price technically not in proportion to the facilities to stay that are described on the website .. for a camper this location / place is not suitable ..

also left after 2 hours looking for another stay nearby in Weesp .. a farm campsite for 15.- instead of the 38,- we had paid in advance ..

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly and very thoughtful in solutions but it is not what we expected ..

Tips for new guests?
Check whether this place with your camper is suitable for your stay
It's not up to the hostess

Hi Piet, you were a day earlier than booked.
And had 2 youth tents where I would normally inform the guests.
I also told you that beforehand and offered yet another place.
You came completely unexpectedly because there would be no check-in that day because the guests who booked for that place had corona.

We were just recovering after cleaning our accommodations.
And the next task would be the plumbing.

The place where you were only gets great reviews and we don't understand anything except that young people went chill to their next trip.

There was no more hassle.
I don't understand this, I immediately offered to give you the full amount back because you were wrong about the day.

Our special place on the canal is nowhere else and are always full.
And are very grateful to the people who appreciate it so much and have been back several times.

Thank you for your 30 minute visit and I wish you a wonderful stay at campsites that meet your high standards.
Warm regards Angelina and Melvin

Pitch is too narrow for caravan or motorhome. As a result, doors and hatches cannot open properly.

July 2021 · Translated from dutch

Host angelina has responded

Dear Sonja.
I'm sorry you experienced it that way.
Fortunately, there are several places.
And of course that could have been done in consultation.
You yourself were not really positive from the moment of arrival.
And can happen of course.
Are people after all ;))))

And putting your sweet dog's barrier far from the hedge makes it smaller than it can be.

Fortunately, we fully met you and you could still enjoy elsewhere.

And there is a same size camper now with great pleasure.
Kind regards Angelina and Melvin

Tell us about your experience
Arrival:
On arrival we were shocked by the view. We were very warmly welcomed.

The place:
The camper place on this "camping" in a backyard is absolutely not suitable for campers who love greenery, peace and space. Close to the water, but you share a kind of terrace (for your own place) with other guests.

We arrived with our small VW camper including awning and dog. The only camper place is at the front of the garden next to a shipping container on the path and there you have little to no privacy because you are expected to keep a walkway clear next to it. Our own fault is that we unfortunately did not communicate well in advance about the space and the surface that we expect (but which we, as novice campers, took for granted). The space was too small and too hard and due to the high risk of damage to our new air awning of 2 by 3 with a fixed ground sheet, it was not suitable to place on these stones.

The facilities:
The toilet is a blue construction dixie with a kind of self-made dixie shower next to it. We did not look at the jacuzzi…

In general, the “camping” looked very messy and not fresh. They were cleaning up but you pay full price.

Conclusion:
Unfortunately, it was not at all to our standards and expectations and we therefore immediately left. We did not get money back because of the Easter weekend. To accommodate us, Angelina would try to get it rented out so that she could return the money. Unfortunately, that turns out not to have been possible for last Saturday and Sunday (8 and 9 April 2023) and have therefore not received anything in return.

All in all, the quality compared to the price is therefore completely out of proportion for us.

Fortunately, we found another campsite that met our expectations that day

How was the contact with the host?
Very good. Responds quickly and kindly and tries to think along. Immediately went on the defensive that camper spots are always paved and small and that is why she always asks for the size of the camper. We have communicated in advance that this is our first camping trip and that it concerns a VW van with a small awning. This was no problem. Small awning is therefore debatable; what is small for one is large for the other.

Tips for new guests?
Everyone has different standards and expectations. Judge yourself!
