Are you looking for a quietly located and comfortable holiday home in the Bollenstreek area?

Are you looking for a house that is spacious enough to accommodate all of your family without the need to sacrifice any luxury or comfort?

Or is it a cosy cottage you are looking for, close to the beach but away from the hustle and bustle? 

    • With panoramic views of farm land and bulb fields
    • Plenty of possibilities for walking and cycling
    • That feeling of luxury while enjoying the wood-burned outdoor sauna and shower

We are Marieke Smit and Jan van der Zwet, owners of holiday homes ‘Vakantiewoningen Ruigenhoek’. Marieke was born and bred here and therefore knows the area like the back of her hand.

Used to the silence and cherishing the beautiful views and the surroundings with its many possibilities, we decided to share this unique place with others.  


On the 10,000 m2 estate, we built a new house for our personal use and decided to turn farm ‘De Ruigenhoek’ – situated on a 1,000 m2 lot – into a holiday home.
On very old waterway maps, the farm is known under the name of ‘Bethlehem’.
In July 2013 we added a holiday bungalow that sleeps 4 people to our holiday rentals.

'WE HAD A GREAT STAY! A FEELING OF LUXURY. The holiday home was fine and neat. The welcoming was very nice and enjoyable. We liked the broad views. The Jacuzzi and sauna were delightful and added to the feeling of luxury. The couple was very hostable and friendly!'

Passion for our paramedical centre

Our second passion is situated in the village of Noordwijk, where Jan owns paramedical centre ‘De Praktijk’.
This centre offers various disciplines, amongst which are acupuncture, bioresonance therapy, physiotherapy and manual therapy.
Marieke worked in De Praktijk as office manager.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in one of your holiday homes.
Best wishes, Marieke Smit & Jan van der Zwet
