Holland is a region in the western section of the Netherlands, encompassing several cities: Arnhem, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, and a handful of others. Of course, Gouda is historically the most important, being the birthplace of the variety of cheese with the same name. The area has historically featured a maritime culture, with most of the inhabited land being at or below sea level. Being situated on the North Sea, at the mouths of two rivers (the Rhine and Maas), constant drainage of water and the arrangement of dikes are required to prevent the area from flooding. This is evident in the type of architecture, and the numerous windmills that have become symbolic of the Netherlands as a whole. The intricate system of canals and waterways link areas of the region, where the old-school European flavor, historical aura, artistic culture, natural oases, and various adult-themed activities captivate people from all over the world. Here are the top 12 Airbnb vacation rentals in Holland, Netherlands. Read on to learn more.

Two beds, two bathrooms, a heated floor, and a short distance from the Arnhem’s commercial locales make this a real hotspot. Don’t forget to go “HAM” on the bottle of wine presented to welcome guests.

An entire two-bedroom bungalow can be rented out for up to four guests in a Robert Frost-esque woodlands section of Arnhem. The property allows for peaceful seclusion just a short walk from the bustle of the city; and is down the block from a butcher, baker, (no candlestick maker, unfortunately) and also close to the National Park Hoge Veluwe, Royal Burgers’ Zoo, and the Open Air Museum. The signature detail is a nifty outdoor deck for some birdwatching, or just plain hanging out like champs in the Netherlands. Access to nearby highways allows you to explore the rest of the country at your leisure if you have a vehicle handy.

The Arnhem neighborhood offers an avant-garde houseboat, which looks like a unique fusion between Noah’s Ark and a landscape from a Salvadore Dali painting. The owners live on the ground floor and have presented two private double rooms available; wonderfully decorated in the Scandinavian style (despite being Dutch), with breakfast included. Nearby attractions include the Royal Burgers’ Zoo, which showcases exotic animals in a simulation of their natural habitats, and the Van Gogh Museum if you’re in an artistic mood. After you’ve done the tourist thing, unwind on the inviting outdoor deck that sits atop the waterfront.
Ark 'Dans', B&B Gaudi-aan-de-Rijn
Place yourself in a real-life fairy tale, headlined by this bed and breakfast under the canopy of a Dutch forest. The best part is, you won’t have to worry about some antiquated witch or an annoying goblin from folklore ruining the romantic harmony of the moment. This rustic, one-bedroom fortress of solitude is less than a five-minute walk from the Royal Burgers’ Zoo and has its own private entrance.
B&B "Bed in het Bos"
Arnhem is an interesting, residential subsection of Holland, about an hour away, and a welcome change from Amsterdam. It’s home to many nature preserves/ attractions, mountain bike trails, hilly terrain, art museums, and institutes. It’s known for being the birthplace of Vincent Van Gogh. His art displays, as well as works from similar names from throughout the region, can be seen around town.
