    Good Host
  • Description


    We're an English/Dutch family living in the beautiful region of Westerwolde. A few years ago we fell in love with this big farmhouse that had been converted into a beautiful home. Since then life got busy! We have two children aged 4 and 10, busy jobs and studies and we have a passion to keep our house and garden (10.000 m2!) up and running. There's always something to do and at the moment we're mostly redecorating, painting (inside and outside), gardening and doing small DIY jobs around the house. We'd love some company and help! We'd offer you a pleasant home in an beautiful natural environment. It's wonderful to relax here after a day's work and enjoy the surroundings. We're flexibel to all kinds of arrangements and would love to hear from you.
