About this campspace #s004630

Your host

Karolien

Peaceful green corner, completely off-the-grid with basic facilities. We use solar panels. The authentic Mongolian yurt is heated with a large wood stove. Outside you can make a campfire in the fire pit. Firewood and firelighters are provided. On the property there is a compost toilet and outdoor kitchen. However, there is no shower or bath yet, you can wash yourself in a plastic tub for the time being. Peace and self-development are central here, therefore preferably no children on the site.

The nature reserve De Gratiebossen is nearby. And the Donkmeer is not far either. There you can sail with a boat, enjoy good food or visit the butterfly garden.

If desired, you can also book a relaxing massage. Feel free to message me for more information about this.

Campers longer than 5 meters are not recommended, as the entrance has a sharp bend, and the wheels can sink into the ground in rainy weather.

Had a fantastic 3 days in this magical piece of forest. Enjoyed a back to basics life combined with the luxury of the Yurt. In the area you can enjoy beautiful walks in nature. Enjoying the evening around the campfire closes the day in a perfect way.

Karolien welcomed us very well and was always available and available for questions.

What a super beautiful place! We really enjoyed the place together with our dog. On the property are chickens, a vegetable garden and many bees. You are completely in nature. The outdoor kitchen is nice and has everything you need. Tent in the car and go!

How was the contact with the host?
The contact with Karolien was great. She explains everything well and answers your questions quickly. Also very understanding for our dog who still has a lot to learn, which made it very relaxed.

A real gem. We had a great experience with our camper. A beautiful piece of landscape with self-sustainable goals, waking up with only the sound of nature. A camping site with sufficient distance between the pitches for privacy.

How was the contact with the host?
The host pays a lot of attention to both the campsite and its visitors. The contact was very good, nothing to complain about.

Tips for new guests?
Enjoy the peace and nature!

bring enough drinking water so you don't have to go to the store ;), then you can really live off the grid for a while.

Lovely place with beautifully decorated Yurt. Very atmospheric.

Very friendly woman who gave all the explanations and made her dream come true there: offering an ecological place where you can relax. Responds quickly and correctly. Pleasant contact

Tips for new guests?
To go! But be careful with wood stove, small fire makes Yurt quickly become very hot.

We had a LOVELY stay at Karolien's forest. The yurt is amazing! Nicely decorated and super cozy. The mattresses are a little too soft for my liking but that's a matter of taste. As there are two mattresses in one bed they tend to drift apart and build a valley in the middle, but it didn't bother us too much. the yurt is really well isolated and got warm and cozy! The outdoor kitchen is well equipped. Karolien brought us drinking water, firewood was included aswell. The compost toilet was clean and neat and pleasant to use :-) We were even provided with some towels to wash (there's no shower yet, we just heated water to clean ourselves). I would've liked a curtain for the window though. We were the only guests so it was very quiet and we had a lot of privacy. It is not as off grid as we expected from the pictures but still very nice.

The place is still under construction, I know that Karolien is doing her best to make the space perfect :) Excited to see what's coming next!



All in all it was an amazing three-day-holiday, we enjoyed it thorougly and can only recommand it!

How was the contact with the host?
Karolien was a lovely host! She replied quickly and was super helpful. We had some change of plans but it wasn't a problem and Karolien was always understanding and friendly! She was always at our disposal for any questions. We could even check out late as the yurt wasn't booked right after our stay. Thank you, Karolien!

What an extraordinary place. What a charming host. Karolien has created a little hideaway between the trees, which is really outstanding, quiet an peaceful. The jurte is an exception from every rule. We are planning to build one in Duesseldorf, once we have stayed in it ,-)

How was the contact with the host?
Very friendly and accommodating. Karolien was there in 2 minutes - she lives right next door - explained the place to us and generously provided us with firewood. And with some deeper insights into life in and of itself :-)) We will be back.

Tips for new guests?
Bring time. Our one day was definitely too short.

Lovely yurt on a very cool property that the owner is dutifully fixing up. Very cool project, and the yurt is more than ready to host guests. Excited to see the space develop!

How was the contact with the host?
Host was responsive and met us for check in. Very friendly! We even added a 4th person and had late checkout with no issues.

Tips for new guests?
We brought pets along and we’re asked to leave them outside of the yurt. Personally I was uncomfortable with this as my dogs sleep inside. This should be stated in the ad ahead of time or the rules should be changed.

I remedied this by thoroughly cleaning when we checked out.

The location is beautiful, the yurt is in a very natural environment where a very cozy / homely atmosphere is created by means of cool, inventive materials, lamps and other objects. There are fresh herbs (for tea) on site, fresh apples, fire pit, ... In short, everything needed for a great camping experience in nature with a little more!

Karolien is very friendly, open and will always ensure that the campers are not short of anything.

I enjoyed my stay in this magical piece of nature. I pitched my tent in the peaceful forest on the moss. The mornings with the sun on the grass are special. I like to come here for the peace, the good vibes, the simplicity. This is an inspired project and you can feel it. The ideal place to recharge in nature. I'd love to come back here.

Beautiful quiet location.
I was able to camp here with the family peacefully in the roof tent.
Super cozy at the campfire and beautiful surroundings for cycling and walking.

I'll definitely be back soon.

How was the contact with the host?
The introduction to the enthusiastic and very grounded owner was also very nice!

Tips for new guests?
I was on site with another family staying overnight in the Yurt. Grounds are big enough for your privacy and tranquility, but we chose to sit around the campfire together and the kids played together!

This is a little paradise under construction. We were alone so we could gather wood to our heart's content for the campfire. The yurt is beautiful.
We will definitely come back here. We are curious about the outdoor kitchen. An outdoor shower would certainly complete it.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good.

Tips for new guests?
The double mattress is a bit on the thin side. Currently no possibility to shower.

Good to consider that there might be other campers at the terrain. Also if you are planning on swimming at the Nieuwdonk lake nearby, at the moment you need to book a ticket for that online...

Bring slippers. You are not allowed to enter the yurt with shoes (so that it stays clean), so slippers are handy to put on and take off quickly :-)

Tell us about your experience
Text from the host: "I mentioned on my Campspace profile that the silence had to be respected + that your own garbage had to be taken with you. Two rules that you have ignored. As far as I'm concerned you should not come back." We arrived with our family of four.. we often book with airbnb and campspace. Almost all had good experiences .. Bit weird and rude reaction after. We sang 2 songs around the campfire and apparently the neighbours, who live tens of meters from our camp site, were disturbed by that, they will have to endure a lot more when you are fully operational. We did stop immediately after your text message. Forgot to mention? We did not take the garbage bag with us after the very heavy cloudburst that night. It was very wet and full of ants. That does not go in our car and there was no space provided on your property. Maybe a first point.. Too bad you literally tell us that we don't have to come back anymore, instead of friendly feedback..

How was the contact with the host?
Fairly quick response via campspace. In real life also short performances, afterwards received less nice reaction. This made us feel uncomfortable..

Tips for new guests?
Don't go here if you expect a nice piece of forest, because the terrain is still fallow
Not even if you make a little more than 10 decibels of noise..

Host Karolien has responded

Dear Cato,
all the campers who have already been here, and there are quite a few, have left everything clean, you are the only exception. Whatever excuse you may have to leave a full bag of unsorted waste, it seems respectful to report that instead of just leaving it silently behind.

It also seems obvious to me that singing loudly after midnight, in the midst of an oasis of tranquility, is unheard of. Also in this you are the only ones who seem not to understand this.

I have always been clear in communication that the site is in full development. Improvements are made every week. The provision of a waste point is still on the program, you knew this.

I leave all campers free on the site and give all privacy. Everyone can choose the time of arrival and departure themselves. I provide free water bottles if desired. I am also always available for questions or help. In other words, I really do everything I can to please everyone. But there are also limits. Out of respect for the place, the tranquility and myself, I would rather not receive the same border crossingers twice. Thanks for understanding.

What a great spot. Nice rest in a forest. Recently pruned some trees but still a lot of green. Very nice was also the possibility to make campfire. Also very nice welcome from Karolien who made us feel very welcome. The place is changing rapidly because people are building a platform where they will hold sessions later on. We will definitely come back here.

Tell us about your experience
It was a very pleasant reception. We were told we were the first guests. The personal vehicle could be parked on the plot and water bottles were provided. We were given a tour of the domain. Complete privacy was then given by Karolien.

The plot is a piece of forest under construction, currently a bit bare but this will only improve in the future. In the future, for example, a yurt, toilet and outdoor kitchen will be provided. Currently there are no amenities but that's just what makes it fun for me.

The forest borders a hiking trail but there is plenty of opportunity to sit out of sight. There is a large clearing to pitch the tent and make a campfire. However, you can place a tarp or tent between the trees in the forest.

There are many birds where you can really enjoy their singing.

Worth repeating!
