Private appartement in beautiful secret garden in Opijnen next to river Waal. Spacious living room, separate kitchen and bathroom, 1 double-bedroom, terrace with fire place and Jeu de Boules. Outside: labyrint, volleybal field and trampoline, garden with many flowers and roses and lots of fruits. The floodlands are perfect for hiking, swimming, canoeing, cycling and fishing.


The space

The appartment is located in "de Geheime Hof", a secret garden with astonishing views, roses and plenty of fruits, free to eat. The appartment is completely private, with a fully equiped kitchen (inluding oven and microwave). From the cosy living room you can access the outside terrace, where you can enjoy the evening breeze around a campfire. The appartment is clean and the bedroom has access to the other outside terrace next to the Jeu de Boules space. Waking up with the sounds of many birds, that is one of the characteristics of staying in the Geheime Hof.

Guest access

Visitors have full privacy and the kitchen, bathroom, living room, and outside terraces are only for the use of the visitor.

The garden is being shared with a few chickens, cats and sporadically a dog. At the back of the yard, there are goats and storks at the bordering neighbours place. The wooden bench on top of the dyke gives a spectacular view on the river Waal and its floodlands, and it is a favorite place for romantic visitors to drink a glass of wine watching the sunset.

Interaction with guests

Although visitors can enjoy their full privacy, we are always available to answer questions, or give you suggestions for exploring the area. We will welcome you with a drink, but respect your privacy.

The founders of the Geheime Hof live on the adjecent plot, which is their own private part of the secret garden.

The Secret Garden is a haven of tranquillity in one of the most beautiful parts of the Dutch river delta, bordering the flood plains of the River Waal with its numerous opportunities for hiking and cycling trips. The garden itself is amazing with lots of trees, including lovely old fruit trees, and an endless variety of plants. Bushes, shrubs, herbs, grapes, berries, creepers, climbers and flowers colluding to create a green wilderness. It also allows for a lot of privacy (if you don’t mind sharing your territory with a number of chickens and cats). The apartment is a work in progress, characterized by the extensive use of old building materials which give it a feel of simplicity and times gone by. Its amenities are basic but adequate and include a good bed and decent shower. But it is a fairly unusual residence so in case you prefer a more conventional type of accommodation this may not be a good choice. However, for people who enjoy staying in exceptional places and being awaked by birdsong rather than traffic it can hardly be bettered. Add to this the hosts and family members who live nearby and couldn’t be more welcoming and helpful. Altogether the secret garden is a place where one finds human kindness and, in particular during long summer days, can unwind surrounded by an abundance of nature.

This secret garden is an amazing place peaceful and cosy. It s difficult to describe the atmosphere of this little Eden in Netherlands. Flowers trees plants peace good spirit....we adored it ! We have never experienced such a warm welcome in a bnb. Lovely host with such a nice family around. Amazing breakfast brought to the house every day. Whether you want total intimacy or if you want to interact with the host...your choice ! This place is not fancy but everything's there, it's comfortable and cosy. Many beautiful bike rides around (they even sorted out a baby bike seat for us !!!). We will definitely go back !

Wat een prachtig sprookjesachtig huisje. De wilde, grote tuin waar je in kan verdwalen en het fruit die je kan plukken geven je het gevoel alsof je weer even kind bent. Boven op de dijk kan je over de rivier kijken naar de zonsondergang. Verder was het huis simpel, ruim en schoon. Wij voelden ons ontzettend welkom door Gul. Echt een aanrader voor als je weer even terug wilt naar de essentie.
