In a small village I found the house of my dreams. My house is build by a captain who lived in this village. At that time there was a harbour. (the forth most important one of the Netherlands)
.On the first floor of my very old (1850) house you find a space with 2 sleeping rooms, bathroom and space to cook small meals en eat your breakfast on a kitchen table. This space is for the guests only. Pots and pans, dishes, cups, cutlery, are there to use.
There are 2 bedrooms on the first floor, the stairs are a little stap. One of them (4x6 m) is in the front of the house en the other one (2.10x4 m) is situated on the left site of the house. There are 4 beds. In between the 2 bedrooms there is a space were you can cook a small meal. In the bathroom, also in between the two bedrooms, there is a toilet, shower and a kitchensink. There you can also find a senseo coffeemaker and waterboiler.

My house is a listed building. It is a old captain house since Gasselternijveen was the 4th most impotent haven in the Netherlands round 1860. There is no isolation and mostly made with wood and can be chilly in wintertime. Creaking floors included. Most of the building is heated by gas heaters. So rooms where there are no heaters are chilly. The house is situated in a small quiet village on a through traffic road. Traffic can be heard in the sleeping room. No smoking on the first floor. There is one room in the house where smoking is allowed.
There are 3 cats in the house, they are allowed to go where ever they want except to the first floor.
The house is old so its easy to here any noise that is made. So the owner and guest have to take this into account.
The guests will get there own key to the house so they can come and go whenever the please. The key needs to be returned to the owner the day that the guests are leaving.
