Vacation rentals on the Dutch coast
On the Dutch coast you can rent an apartment right on the beach and be woken up by the sound of the waves in the morning. However, the beach cottages on offer are also suitable as holiday homes, offering you plenty of comfort and a cosy atmosphere. These are usually equipped with a veranda from which you can enjoy the sunset as the day draws to a close. By the way, many landlords on the Dutch coast provide bicycles in the accommodations with which you can explore the beautiful surroundings.
