The coziest house nearby the Wadden Sea!

Do not wait any longer and book a stay in our cottage


Holiday home Smoek is located on the edge of Holwerd, overlooking the sea dike and the Frisian countryside.


Holiday home Smoek is a small but complete holiday home in which you will find all modern conveniences.


Holwerd is one of the largest villages of the present municipality Noardeast Fryslân (formerly: Dongeradeel) with currently about 1500 inhabitants and has good facilities for both residents and tourists.

We are Richard and Eva and Rintjema, both raised in Holwerd. We have a daughter and a son of teenage age. Since our teenage years we have both been very active in the club life of our village, where the decline from the late 90’s to the late 10’s was close to our hearts. 

We now try to use our time and energy to ensure that our generation leaves a beautiful and promising village and surroundings for our children and future generations.

Through our holiday home Smoek, among other things, we think we can make a positive contribution to this and play a role as ambassadors for Holwerd and the Wadden area.
