A lovely Gem in peaceful, beautiful surroundings. Marojean a lovely hostess, helpful with suggestions to enhance our stay and onward journey. The cottage, No 4 Hendrik a' n  Huisje, with its attention to details, was cosy and inviting where we enjoyed a peaceful, restful sleep. Only sorry our stay was so short. We will most certainly return again.
