Enjoyable and Fun!!!

Robert and Nelleke were so much fun to be with. Beautiful Souls! Love their smiles and laughing nature. They have done many things in their lives. Very interesting to talk to. It would be wonderful if they came back to visit with us someday.

Wonderful Guests!

Lots of fun visiting with this delightful couple from the Netherlands. We learned a lot about their home country and their worldwide travels. They were fun, energetic, friendly and they are welcome back anytime! We found many hobbies and likes in common.

What a joy to host!

Do not miss an opportunity to meet this lovely, personable couple. We have fond memories of Nelleke’s easy, sweet laughter and Robert’s warm personality. They have so much enthusiasm about touring the USA...with a daunting, detailed itinerary in hand...that their travel stories will only become even more interesting. This couple loves life!

Drove in as strangers but left as friends

This was a very short stay but we wish they could have stayed longer. Rob and Nelleke are such happy and friendly people from The Netherlands travelling the US and Canada, it would be hard not to like them! We had such a nice time visiting with them.
We would welcome them back any time and any other Host would be lucky to have them as guests!

Safe travels Rob and Nelleke!
