Juliet

Free camping for an hour of odd jobs a day? Then you've come to the right place with us.

From September, our camping spots are only available from Thursday evening to Sunday.

We are Juliet, Tuur and Ellis. We also have Flint (dog), Kaatje (cat) and Vos (rabbit).
On 1 July of this year we moved from Rotterdam to Siebengewald. We are the proud owners of a handy house which stands on approximately 6000m2 of land.
The place is beautiful but there is a lot of work to do. Both in and outside.
Next to our house is a beautiful piece of land with a large 'swimming' pond, croaking frogs, birds, a swimming pool, the neighbors' horses in the background.
It's basic. But you are more than welcome. You can borrow our BBQ and take a dip in the pool. Within 10-30 minutes you will find various villages (Gennep, Nieuw-Bergen, Afferden) and within 25 minutes you are in Nijmegen. Within a fifteen minute walk or 5 minutes by bike you are in the Maasduinen National Park.
We don't have sanitary facilities yet, but we do have a camping toilet and a shower bag to borrow.
Next to our house is an N-road. There is quite a bit of local traffic, especially in the morning and in the evening. The rest of the day is not too bad for us, in the weekends it is quieter in terms of traffic anyway.
We have all kinds of jobs. Some of the jobs:
- digging up the sand of 'our beach'
- weeding.
- clear the vegetable garden from weeds.
- help build the chicken coop.
- make 'the gate' and put it in the paint.
- refurbish the barn doors.
- Help Juliet or Tuur assist with indoor chores.

One hour per day per adult. When camping for several days, you can of course also choose to add up the hours and do odd jobs in 1 day, then you have all the other days free to explore the beautiful surroundings.

We hope to see you soon.

Greetings Juliet, Tuur and Ellis.

Heerlijk stukje paradijs aan een mooie vijver,in de nabijheid van een schitterend natuurpark.

Wij hebben ons eigen stekkie mogen uitzoeken nadat wij welkom geheten zijn door Juliet en Tuur,die samen met hun dochter ,Flynt (de hond) en Kaatje (de kat) een huisje opknappen.

Het ligt aan de weg,achter de struiken,maar je slaapt echt zo door het verkeer heen.

het leuke was de doevakantie.

Wij het verblijf,en zij waren geholpen bij het kippenhok en stapelen van stenen :-)

Na gedane arbeid was het genieten <3



Groetjes uit het uiterste zuiden,Carlo en Anita

How was the contact with the host?
Het contact was zeer goed,bij mijn mailtjes was er steeds snel antwoord.

A super fun camping concept. Do some odd jobs and then enjoy the beautiful garden and surroundings for free. This tastes like more.

Everything went smoothly. Friendly welcome, nice chat, pleasant cooperation. In short: perfect.

What a beautiful environment and what a beautiful house and the story that goes with it. Hopefully we were able to make a good contribution to helping with the house. The kids absolutely loved it. We also enjoyed and found it nice to deliver such small amounts to the house.
Good luck with this beautiful house and the great garden.
And enjoy it and make something beautiful out of it . But I think it will certainly work .

Greetings from U.S .

Wonderful spot with people who are realizing their dream place, and who want to share this beautiful place with people like (you and) me.

The spot where I was allowed to stand gave a beautiful view of the pond with lilies, which Monet would not be averse to, really added value in terms of view ...

How was the contact with the host?
Nice contact, friendly people who think along with you and leave you more or less free in how and which job you take on.

I have, for example, hazing the beach on my own initiative.., soothing and a rewarding job.

Tips for new guests?
Don't expect any extra amenities except the basics, don't see it as a camping site but as staying with friends in the (spacious, beautiful) garden…

Have fun

We had a wonderful evening and night at the Camping at Kaatje! The hosts are both extremely hospitable and pleasant. The campsite had only just opened, so everything was still in the starting phase, which was no problem at all. We swam in the pond!

How was the contact with the host?
Totally fine!

Tell us about your experience
Besides camping in the yard as a kid, I never really camped with a tent.
So I was not prepared at all, but I was helped enormously hospitably.
Their garden is beautiful, with a nice big pond, and even a small beach with a fire bowl.
I went earlier than necessary (nothing to do with them), but I hope I can visit again in the future, and this time I'll try to be a little better prepared!

How was the contact with the host?
They are both very sweet hospitable people, with a cheerful daughter.
Despite working hard to turn their new home into a dream home, she responded quickly to my messages, and they both took the time to chat with the guests.

Tips for new guests?
I went alone for the first time, and of course found it very exciting. But as soon as I got there I felt safe, and had the feeling that if something happened or if I needed help, that I could knock on their door.

Host Juliet has responded

Hi Vera,
Know you are welcome next time.
Indeed, a little better preparation and a bit more 'tasty' in your own skin. Then it will be all right.
Nice that you were there.

Awesome place! The owners devided their garden into two parts: one for own use and one for their guests. We stayed at the “guest side” and it was great: a swimming pond, a pool and surrounded by nature. The only downside is that the house is located next to a busy road, but this wasn’t an issue for us (the garden is almost fully fenced). Thank you for your hospitality Juliet & Tuur!

We were looking last minite for a place to pitch our tent, something that was most like camping in the wild. Fortunately, we could go to Juliette. Although there is no sanitary facilities, we were able to set up our tent at their lake and were allowed to use their swimming pool or clean pond. It was a great experience, especially after hiking for 5 hours with a backpack on your back.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good. Once I got in touch with Juliette she was quick to respond and even offered to pick us up. because we were the first guests, we could use the toilet building in their house to be renovated. Very laid back people.

Tips for new guests?
A nice place if you don't have too many expectations yourself. For us it was a luxury, because we wanted to camp in the wild. If you actually want to go to a place where you want to be fully equipped, then this is not your place. Also I had some trouble finding the exact location initially. Only after payment will Campspace deliver this location to you (and the phone number of the host). That gave me some confusion, also because logging in was difficult.
