“We would love to come back !”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The whole Kaag area is very nice to explore, lots of things to do !
Living in this boat makes it even better, it is nice and cosy and the accommodation is just fine.
The little motor boats are great for the children, swimming is possible if the weather is good enough.

“A good cycling and boating base”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Het Waternest is comfortable and well-equipped for six people, but would be a little cramped for eight especially in poor weather. We had a great time here, perfect base for cycling to Keukenhof, driving to Space eXpo and the beach at Katwijk, and taking the train from Leiden to Amsterdam. The RIB was fun, and the bird life varied. We had dry but chilly weather - good for cycling, but too early in the year for swimming or sun-bathing.

“Tropical holiday in the "waternest"”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Excellent location for anybody who enjoys watersport. We had ample sunshine so we lived for most our stay outside. We brought our own yacht which was moored next to the waternest. Also the fact that "the kooi" offered a separate bedroom was very convenient.
We had a tropical holiday, we will be back!
