  • Bart from amsterdam,

    10 stars

    Met een vriendengroep hadden we een uitmuntende week dankzij het fraaie, goed ingerichte huis en het heerlijke zwembad. Daar boven op voelden we ons zeer welkom door de gastvrijheid en het enthousiasme van Roger en Phil.

  • Piet Beers from Noordscharwoude,

    10 stars

    We had an excellent stay for two weeks at the Hibiscus house. The owners of the house live nearby and are friendly and very helpful. The house is very complete with nice furniture and good equipment in the kitchen. Besides a great swimmingpool, you have a lot of space around the house with a large fence around it. Our dog also had a great time. You can make great hikingtrips with your dog in the nearby surroundings. Be sure to have the seven course lunch at the restaurant in Bardenac. You can also buy wine and cognac around the corner at vignoble Rene Carre. We had a great time!

  • Dirk Giebens from Essen,

    10 stars

    We had a wonderful holiday. The owners, who also live there, are very sweet and helpful. We had car trouble on the ground, but for Roger and Phil, there was nothing too much. They gave themselves their car key to help us and brought us breakfast out of concern. The holiday home is top and has all the amenities.
    Excellent address to spend your holidays.
    Amazing people.
