Though small, with a population numbering less than 500 inhabitants, the town of Bergen Aan Zee on the North Sea coast of Holland is far from insignificant. Tourists pour into the town all year round due in no small part to the artistic history of the town, which has provided a home and an inspiration to Dutch painters such as Charley Toorop. The fabulous natural views contribute to this history and, if you visit in October, you will have the chance to experience the art festival known as Kunst10Dagen (or “Ten Days of Art”). You will also have the chance to experience local food at eateries such as the stylish Bergen Binnen, and to stay at one these classic Dutch Airbnb vacation rentals.
The emphasis in this vacation dwelling is on openness, and the studio accommodation features an open-plan design combining kitchen, seating area, and sleeping quarters. A separate, stylish, modern bathroom and a walled garden are particular highlights, and the owner states that your privacy is paramount–so she won’t be in your face, but will be available to you whenever needed. As a bonus, the renter of this accommodation also has access to a beach cabin–including a sun bed and parasol–on the nearby beach at Egmond.

This room in a house just two minutes from Egmond’s Beach is a joy chiefly due to its excellent view over the sea and the town’s famous Van Speijk Lighthouse. You won’t just be renting the room either; for each day that you stay you will also be served a freshly-made breakfast, including fruit juice, by the host, who lives in the house and will be happy to advise you on how best to enjoy your stay in the Bergen region. After a day on the beach, you may also appreciate the chance to enjoy the hot tub available at the lodging.

Access to upstairs is by ladder, although a movable stairwell is on offer if you have children with you.

Given Bergen’s reputation for art, it is appropriate that people of an artistic tendency will fancy visiting, and where better for them to stay than in the former workshop of an artist? In this case, the modernist painter Gerrit van Blaaderen (1873-1935), whose former atelier has been renovated into a cosy house which fills with light–something that would certainly have pleased the artist. In the present, it has become a simple, comfortable home with modern conveniences such as a dishwasher, flatscreen TV, and a cosy outside seating area.
There is parking space for two cars, and the town of Bergen is close by, as are the owners who live in a separate property on the grounds.

The private room contains an ensuite bathroom and kitchen facilities as well as offering cable TV and wireless Internet.

This detached summer house is in a quiet forested area close to the town of Bergen, and within twenty minutes’ cycling of the dunes and coast. If you don’t have a bike, then you are welcome to rent one for a small fee from the owner of this charming cottage. The property is ideal for a couple, perhaps with a young child. All of the essentials are provided, and the cottage has two bedrooms upstairs as well as an equipped kitchen; you are welcome to contact and visit the owner who lives on the same grounds, but will stay out of your hair if you wish.

The owner of this holiday home makes clear that the room you’ll be renting is small, but it is very comfortable and tastefully decorated, and contains all that you could need for your stay including a large, comfortable bed as well as tea and coffee making facilities. You also have full use of an outdoor terrace where you can sit out with a book or something to eat and drink, and most importantly, the accommodation is just 50 metres (164 ft) from Bergen’s wonderful beach. The name “Zeevogel” is, incidentally, “Sea Bird” in Dutch.

The pun in the name of this guesthouse is just one of the many delightful things about it. Its location, just ten minutes’ walk from the beach, is in a place where it gets lots of natural light, so the house always feels light and airy, and there is an outdoor area where you can sit and enjoy the healthy sea air. The entire guesthouse is at your disposal, including two large bedrooms, and it is spacious enough to easily accommodate four guests. Wireless Internet is also included in the price.

If you are looking for a quiet setting in which to enjoy a relaxing holiday, this conversion is an ideal option for you, providing enough space for up to six guests. An expansive entry area downstairs leads into a kitchen-dining room from which you can step out onto a seated patio with room for eight people. You’ll be half way between Egmond and Bergen in a forested area, and have an excellent view all the way to Alkmaar in an area with little or no noise or light pollution. The presence of an art studio nearby is a testament to how relaxed and quiet the area is.
