Koekehuis – Haus am Teibes

Our farmhouse which was originally built in 1840, has been owned by our family since 1984 and has been extensively renovated since 2011. We have spent a lot of time, energy and a lot of love to create this cozy holiday home where we often like to stay with our own family and friends as well.

Despite the name suggesting, our holiday home is only 1 (large) house, there are actually several options for rental. The name “Koekehuis” is the family name for the house given by the grandchildren of our family, many years ago, whilst the name “Haus am Teibes” refers to the location: at the Teibes (the floodplains of the Ulf). The two names also identify various rental options:

The house consists of 2 floors and an attic. All floors are interconnected by indoor stairs. There are 7 bedrooms in total. The maximum sleeping capacity is 16 people and 2 babies (children up to 3 years old who sleep in a camping bed).

Due to the size of the house we offer 4 different rental options. Our house is therefore also attractive for smaller groups (less than 12 people.). Both apartments have separate entrances and private terraces and can be rented separately (rental options Lower- and Upper Apartment). For smaller groups of 4 or 6 persons our house is also a nice property to spend your holiday. See “prices” for the terms and conditions.

Our property is the perfect place to spend a nice (long) weekend with your family. To us it is important that children enjoy their stay too. As well as the safe space, games and activity equipment in our garden, we offer 2 highchairs, plastic dishes and a child toilet seat for the toddlers. For a pleasant stay with babies there are 2 dressing cots, a baby bath and 2 sturdy camping beds with an extra mattress available. Children up to 3 years old (sleeping in a camping bed) are free.
