There is a television with built-in DVD player and Google Chromecast dongle. Also see under 'Television' if being able to receive your favorite networks is important to you.
The radio is a DAB + radio. This means you can only receive (Dutch) channels that air on those DAB frequencies, including news and music channels. For all other radio channels, we advise you to use the internet.
The radio works on a battery, so you can place it anywhere.
You can connect your laptop - or mobile phone - to the speaker. This gives you an excellent sound from a fine speaker. Orion Computerworld, Torenstraat 60, 1901 EG Castricum sells all possible cables. The radio requires an audio cable 'without resistance'.
There is a modest barbecue on the terrace outside, size 35cm round and 35cm high. Bring charcoal.
Always highly recommended to guests: renting bicycles. Even if you don't rent a bicycle for everyone, it adds a great value to your stay when you have a few bicycles around to hop on for a quick dip in the ocean. Reserve in good time.
Kruijswijk tweewielers in Castricum rents out bicycles for a minimum of three days, including city bikes with 7 gears, electrical bicycles with an action radius up to 80 km, box bicycles, children seats, bicycle trailers, trail-a-bikes and bicycle bags. Kruijswijk does not rent out children bicycles. If reserved on time, the bikes can be delivered at the house so they are ready and waiting for you on your arrival.
You can also easily rent different kinds of bicycles online at Bicycle rental Schoorl. The minimal renting period is three days.
You can also rent bicycles on a daily base at Johanna's hof, at a ten minute car drive from the house. Tel: +31 (0)251 652486.

Check-in from 3:00 om and check-out no later than 4:00 pm.
In case of cancellations, the renter pays a remuneration, depending on the time of cancellation. The amount comes to 25% when canceling more than six months before the start date; 50% within four to six months; 75% within two and four months and 100% of the agreed rental sum when canceling within a month of the start date. Most insurers offer a cancellation insurance.
We would strongly recommend that you take out appropriate travel insurance which provides cover against loss of deposit or cancellation fees. See, for instance here.
In case you organize a stay for individual participants, also make sure your own cancellation policy vis a vis your participants is clear and robust. Also advise your participants to take out their own individual travel insurance.
