Beautiful view on sunset, usage of lounge area near stream. Located 15 kilometers from major cities such as Leeuwarden and Sneek. 40 kilometers from the IJsselmeer and Waddenzee. Raerd is also located in the middle of most Frisian cycling routes. Besides that: the famous 11-City route (Elfstedentocht) is only 1 kilometer away!
The apartment itself is spacious with 2 floors. A ground floor which contains bathroom, kitchen and dining area. The first floor contains a 'living' area with couch and television and of course a sleeping area with 4 beds. The bathroom and kitchen are only a couple of years old and so in a very good state. The barn is giving great character by remains of the old barn. Guest have a private entrance through which they can come and go on any preferable moment during day or night.

As an international consultant I am working in agribusiness with a focus on the dairy industry. I give consults from dairy farmer to dairy factory / from contractor to dealer of farm machinery, so to say, at home and abroad. In previous years I have been lecturing for an audience of international students mainly from Africa, Asia and Latin-America. This international atmosphere is somewhat addicting. My wife has been educated as a paediatrician and originally comes from Egypt. Minding children is her hobby. Speaking other languages than Dutch and Frisian is our second nature. On request we can organise any type of agricultural, historical or social programs for the guests staying in our apartment. In the past I graduated as a historian. The apartment is adjacent to our own living quarters. Nevertheless privacy is guaranteed by an own entrance.
