René and Jaap are very lovely hosts. They gave us a warm welcome. After a long drive, René offered us immediately a cup of coffee so we could forget about the terrible drive. And not only that, there was also beer, wine and biscuits in the fridge for us. The apartment is very nice, spacious, clean and well located. If your looking for a place to stay in Utrecht, don’t hesitate.
Our stay with René and Jaap was outstanding. They could not have been more welcoming and treated us like long lost friends. The apartment was spacious and comfortable, delicious fruit, wine and beer was provided and their local knowledge was un-surpassed. Thank you, we would love to come back!
Stunning apartment in a beautiful location with great hosts. Really can’t recommend the place highly enough, the balcony overlooking the gardens is fantastic, lovely bed and a huge living space. René & Jaap even gave us some stroopwafel, wine, juice etc for our stay! Thanks so much for a fantastic time in Utrecht! Will definitely be back! X
This house, and the apartment space, are magnificent. The rooms are tastefully furnished, comfortable and clean, even better than the photos. The location is quiet and peaceful, with a beautiful view of the canal from the living room. The street along the canal is primarily for bikes so there is little to no car traffic. The bedroom has two huge windows facing the lovely back terrace. René met me at the apartment to orient me and give me the keys. He and Jaap are wonderful, helpful and friendly but never intrusive. They provided all supplies, plus a bike, with lock, which I happily rode all over Utrecht. I would recommend this rental highly!
We are very lucky to have found René and Jaap’s bnb. They were lovely hosts and both went out of their way to ensure we had a good stay. The apartment was immaculate and beautifully furnished. We loved Utrecht and would love to return one day. In the meantime , René and Jaap, if you ever come to Canada, please let us know!
“We stayed at Rene’s house for two days and we had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and it is located in a very quiet but well-connected neighborhood. Our hosts René and Jaap made sure that everything was more than perfect: they picked us up from the train station, when we arrived they had prepared some complimentary food and drinks for us and when we were leaving they even gave us a gift. Fantastic house, fantastic experience. ”
René and Jaap were very welcoming. Lovely, lovely accomodation, very clean, well equipped and very comfortable. A bottle of wine, snacks and fruit all left for my enjoyment so they have thought of everything. The area is quiet and the location of the apartement is very convenient for all with the added bonus of wonderful garden outlook at the back and the canal at the front. Cannot fault a thing and thanks for the wonderful stay.
A nice apartment near to central station (10min) and city centre (15-20min). You have a entire floor in the apartment (the first floor) with a complete kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom, but the stairs and entry are shared with they . The district is very quiet and very nice. Rene and Jaap are good hosts. The district is very quiet, the apartment is near to center and very clean. We have drinks and food free during our stay.
– El apartamento esta cerca de la estación central y del centro de la ciudad. Aunque se indique que es una casa/apartamento entero en realidad compartes piso con los dueños, pero solo la entrada y la escalera, tienes una planta de la casa entera con cocina, baño completo, un salon enorme y una habitación bastante grande. El barrio es muy tranquilo, además René y Jaap son buenos anfitriones y dan bastantes facilidades.
What a great experience, it felt like I was staying with family. The apartment is even better than the photos; elegant/modern design, clean, very spacious and bright. The historic apartment feels like a real home with high-end furniture and finishes. The short walk to the center is worth the beautiful canal view! I could have easily sat int the large living room and looked out the window all day. Rene and Jaap are amazing hosts and were very easy to communicate with. They go above and beyond to make sure that you are taken care of; your arrival will be full of unexpected pleasant surprises. Rene works as city guide in Utrecht, so I don’t know how I can get much better than that. I definitely recommend the apartment and I hope that I get to stay in the apartment again. Thank you Rene and Jaap for having me in your wonderful home!
I just wanted to thank you so much for your hospitality and for making my staying in your nice house best as possible.
