Dear Anneke & Jan,

After a difficult start with a broken battery when we drove to Robin's Nest, we arrived later than expected, but we were very pleasantly surprised by a warm welcome with a bottle of wine and a beautiful, fully furnished house in the middle of the green.
How nice that this former care home has been given this hospitable destination, so that many can/may enjoy it.
For us, Elburg with a visit to sand stories, Hattum, Spakenburg and the old town of Harderwijk were real highlights, as well as Staverden Castle.
Nature was at its best in fall dress, so we walked for hours with our dog in the free-walking areas in the area.
The atmosphere of the house, the homely interior with real plants and CD collection, wonderful beds and a nice shower have made our holiday perfect!

Thanks a lot and see you soon!!

Had a wonderful time here.
Great house, easy to walk to the village.
We have had a few days of wonderful cycling in the beautiful surroundings.
Fortunately we had almost no rain.
We also took walks and saw a steam train passing by!

Greetings from Rob and Anneke.

Hello Anneke and Jan,

Very exciting for us; how will the house be?
It's beautiful here, inside and out.
Tall trees, lots of greenery, with lots of bird sounds.
Cycled a lot, made many trips from the past (camping "Drie").
The weather was also beautiful for seven days.

Many thanks, good luck for the future.

Hello Anneke and Jan,

We enjoyed a great week in your beautiful holiday home with a lovely, green, bird-rich garden.
We made many walks, including from the "Schaapskooi". The Speuld clog path was beautiful, just not intended for dogs (we only found out later).
During the walk we saw parachutists jump on the heath.
We also visited the dog beach in Harderwijk, beautifully landscaped, including park and playground.
And Bowie has also regularly visited your dogs.
Thank you for your hospitality.

Paul, Marja and dog Bowie

Dear Anneke and Jan,

A nice place in a beautiful, varied environment.
We cycled quite a few miles here and enjoyed it.
Your welcome is very hospitable and warm. We felt very welcome.
Unexpectedly having a glass of wine together and spontaneously enjoying the Greek pie, partly baked by Maren, we enjoyed very much.
The bed is wonderful, better than at home and the house is fully equipped.
The tip of the Marius van Dokkum museum; fun! The last evening we ate in Restaurant van Sprang; recommended! Wonderful tastings.
Thanks for the good time and we hope that many guests will enjoy their stay at your Robin's Nest.

Kind regards,

Gino and Marjolein

What a beautiful place to stay.
A lovely house with a good bed.
We enjoyed the forest and the moor.
We will definitely come back.
Thank you very much for the hospitality.

Dear Anneke and Jan,

Thank you for your warm welcome and helpfulness.
We had a pleasant stay despite the heat.
They were very relaxed days!
Also compliments for the beautiful art with which the house has been graced.
Good luck with everything and again; Thanks!

The 4th guests!

We had a very nice weekend, and Bumper (the dog) also really enjoyed the dog beaches in the area.

All 3 of us were very hospitably welcomed by Anneke and Jan.
We have nothing to complain about!!

And the house is fine, even with 34 degrees outside. Just keep everything closed to keep it cool.
Definitely a recommendation for other people, including dogs!

31/7 - 7/8 2020

So we were the 3rd guests to arrive on a warm Friday afternoon.
A nice arrival time by the way: 13.30 hrs, this way you can still do something the same afternoon!
We were welcomed very friendly by Anneke and Jan, who showed us around.
They immediately asked us, in case we missed something to report it, so they could resolve it.
And indeed... The missing clock and tea glasses were quickly delivered!
We had to get used to the very open bathroom (shower/toilet...). If one of the two has to go to the toilet at night, you don't really want to because you don't want to wake up the sleeping husband...
We really liked the Tempur mattresses. Early light in the bedroom due to the lack of blackout curtains.
We had very good weather for a week and traveled many kilometers every day in this beautiful area  on rented E-bikes (in Putten). In Ermelo they were all gone, that's why we rented in Putten.
Obviously we made many cycle tours through the beautiful nature here, the Leuvenum Forest, Castle Staverden (beautiful), Castle Oldenaller (very quiet there) and near Putten; Schovenhorst Estate, where we climbed the high forest tower; once above you have a beautiful panoramic view (entrance tickets 4 euros p.p. - can be paid by pin).
We also cycled to Nature Park Lelystad (1.5 hours through the windy Flevopolder). A large nature reserve with a lot of animals. Such as Wisents, Father Davids deer, Prezwalski horses, deer, etc.
Furthermore, Kringloop: Zaak van Ermelo is a great thrift store. And after that we went to the nearby heather again.
Eating out at the Greek restaurant Acropolis. Yammie!
We have looked with admiration at the incredibly beautiful, creative, artistic art objects and paintings that Anneke makes.
Anneke and Jan are very hospitable, helpful, accessible people and also have a nice chat in between.
We think Robin's Nest is a good place to remember and pass on. :-)
Eating in restaurant De Dorpskamer is also recommended (at least the lunch was delicious).
Speulder Forest and Sprielder Forest are also great for cycling/walking. There is a chance of seeing boars!
We left Robin's Nest on another tropical day. But fortunately it stays pretty cool in the house (keep blinds closed).

Dear Anneke, Jan and children,
We wish you much more rental pleasure (with enthusiastic guests).

Dear greetings,

Ron and Coby

The second guests also had a great time here!
Warm welcome and nice chats! Good luck with everything!

20/7 - 24/7 2020

Dear Anneke and Jan,

What an honor that we were your first guests!
We really liked it, the house is fully equipped. And if that was not the case (teaspoons!), it was immediately solved.
We hope your next guests will have a good time as well, they certainly will with such a friendly hostess :-)
