When we arrived at this very bright and stylish house in a typical dutch neighbourhood we were pleasantly surprised with two nice bottles of wine on the table and some treats for the children. It felt like coming to the house of good friends. There is a great playground, soccer field, basketball court, table tennis act right across from the house. There are lots of children playing there so the kids made friends pretty fast. Its a quiet street so no worries to let them go out by themselves. The city centre is about 10 minutes on the bike and it is a very nice bike ride to get there. The house itself is as said spacious, bright and child friendly. We stayed there with 4 teenagers (who were happy with the excellent wifi!) and two younger children ( 8 & 10 ) and everybody had a great time. The garden is a perfect spot to sit and relax, have breakfast or supper. If you want to experience the real dutch way of living and be at a central location in Holland (we took the train to amsterdam, from the railway station thats a 5 min walk from the house, and it took us around 45 minutes, from when we left the home to the centre of amsterdam!) this is the perfect house. If we visit Holland again we'd love to stay in this house .

We had a very good holiday in Ceciel House. Her family welcomed us before going on holiday themselves, and even left us a nice rose arrangement on the dining table for our stay. Ceciel also supported us though text messages for small questions during the stay. The whole house was available to us, except for a small room. The rooms are quite big, and the house has a lot of charm, especially in the attic level. The location is great, within a walking distance to town centre, while Utecht, is located close to other interesting sites in the country. The garden is also a nice place to relax after visiting places.

Normally we do not write reviews, but in this case we really want to appreciate the wonderful host. The house gave a feeling of real home away from home with all the convenient and coziness you will expect from your home. The bus stop is around half a kilometer away and the nearest railway station Utrecht Overvecht is only 0.75 kilometer away. We had the whole house including the full kitchen to our self which was very convenient. The host was very easy to contact. Even though she was on an international trip during our stay she responded immediately whenever we requested some information or help. We will use the same place if we make a next trip to Utrecht. Real wonderful place to stay Kalyani

Wonderful holiday in a wonderful home. The house is really big and we were comfortably. The neighborhood is very quiet and in a great location for proximity to the center and the station of trains. I hope to come back and be able to meet Ceciel in person!

Ceciel was an excellent communicator waiting patiently for our arrival. The house was cozy and provided the seven of us with ample space to settle in for the New Year's events in the Amsterdam area. The community was wonderful with plenty of amenities nearby. Getting transportation into Amsterdam was very easy.

Le logement de Cécile est tout à fait charmant avec une pièce de vie spacieuse et un petit jardin au calme. Le quartier est tranquille , il est appréciable de pouvoir se promener au parc facilement. Le logement est assez grand pour accueillir une famille, et semble typique des maisons hollandaises. Ceciel à été une hôte disponible et prevenante

Ceciel hat uns alle Informationen, die man im Voraus wissen muss, mitgeteilt und uns auch ausführlich über die Parkmöglichkeiten aufgeklärt (die sind nicht besonders toll, aber ein paar Minuten Fußweg weiter gibt es kostenlose Parkplätze). Auch sonst war sie immer erreichbar, falls Fragen aufkamen und stets freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Haus ist einfach nur toll, ein riesiges Wohnzimmer mit großen Fenstern und eine top ausgestattete Küche. Wir waren im Winter dort, durch das Thermostat konnte man immer eine angenehme Temperatur einstellen und es stand ein schöner Weihnachtsbaum bereit. Auch die Betten waren bequem. Im Sommer kann man zudem noch den Garten nutzen, der auch sehr schön aussah. Die Lage ist angenehm (ein Supermarkt in der Nähe und ein Familienwohnviertel, also ist es immer schön ruhig). Es könnte natürlich noch näher an der Altstadt sein, aber der Fußweg ist nicht zu lang und schön. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und können das Haus auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Perfekt ist es auch, wenn man einen längeren Zeitraum dort ist (wir waren eine Woche dort) und nicht jeden Tag viel unternehmen will, sondern auch mal mit den Freunden/ der Familie, mit denen/ der man reist, gemeinsam gemütliche Stunden verbringen will. Utrechts Altstadt mit den tollen Häusern, den Grachten und dem Dom unfassbar schön und auf jeden Fall eine Reise wert! Zudem liegt Utrecht nahe an Amsterdam und am Meer.
