House in Enkhuizen, Netherlands

We came to an agreement concerning our summerholidays August 2021. For the rest of 2021: maybe we would be interested to exchange a 2nd time, preferably in the Netherlands for about a week or so and not too far from country/the place we live. Earliest date/year for more summerholidays: 2022.

As far as our hometown is concerned: discover historic Enkhuizen and surroundings and you will certainly like it.

Our house - a seperate house facing a park - is situated in Enkhuizen, with harbours, town centre, shops within walking distance. One direction leads you towards the town, the other leads you to the parc and to a small beach boarding the IJsselmeer. Our house is within walking distance with a playground, a small beach with shallow water and a fairytale park (very suited for children 1-10 years old). The famous outdoor Zuiderzee Museum also is at walking distance from our house. Our house offers the advantage of a view on the park and being close to the towns centre with bakery, supermarket etc. everything at walking distance.

Departing from Enkhuizen you can visit Hoorn, Alkmaar, the North Sea beach etc. If you want to visit Amsterdam, take the train (a 10 minutes walk to the station) and within the hour you are at the Central Station of Amsterdam. It goes without saying that the surroundings of Enkhuizen are perfectly suited for cycling, which we love to do when the weather permits. The IJsselmeer also offers various possibilities for boattrips; daytrips to Urk, Stavoren v.v.
 
Our names are Robert and Edith Garms (72/71). In the past we exchanged houses several times. Enkhuizen is worth visiting and offers many traces of a rich history. Welcome!
