Had an off-grid spot for a night with the tent. Nice quiet place. In the evening we had a nice meal in the restaurant and in the morning Xander brought a bag with a nice breakfast (for a fee of course). The sanitary facilities are good.

How was the contact with the host?
Relaxed, nice helpful people

Had a wonderful weekend for the 2nd time on this spacious off grid spot. A really beautiful place, with lots of greenery and lots of privacy. Enjoy the birds and ponies as neighbors. It was a bit of a walk to the sanitary facilities, but that is good for the muscles and tendons ;) In the morning an extensive and well-cared-for breakfast was brought to the tent. For us it was really perfect.

How was the contact with the host?
Nice! Xander and Caroline are very hospitable.

Beautiful, green and quiet place. Contact with campsite owner Xander felt free, everything ran very naturally. Sanitary and tents kept clean and tidy, fully equipped. Very pleased, thankful to have been to this place. Thank you so much Xander and Caroline!

How was the contact with the host?
Smooth, relaxed, thoughtful.

Tips for new guests?
We were there in mid-May, hardly any other guests, so we had a lot of space. Tents are spread out on an open field so when it is busy there will be less privacy.

We were off grid for 1 night. You have a lot of privacy but you do have to cross the 'hills' by car. Because it had rained a lot, it was still exciting. The camping area was muddy and full of puddles, but with better weather you'll be fine there. Fortunately, off grid was a bit higher and therefore dry.
The sanitary facilities are clean and modern and the shower was lovely.

How was the contact with the host?
Super! Xander also helped us very quickly when the car would not start.

Quiet campsite with good WiFi and good sanitary facilities. Spacious pitches and dog friendly. We had a nice week in Stieltjeskanaal.

Good afternoon, thank you for your positive review. You eventually chose a "normal" place with electricity and wifi. There is no wifi on the off-grid part of the site.
Hope to see you soon!

It was wonderful camping off grid at Stieltjeshoeve. The hills of the old golf course, the horses and wild flowers in the meadow really make it a unique experience. Caroline and Xander are very hospitable and even brought breakfast to the tent!
