Not at Home

You do not live in this beautiful province of Zeeland permanently but you do have a wonderful, valued second home here. And sometimes you might just want or need to check up on it. Take a look to see if your property has weathered the latest storm or simply keep an eye on it. It is not always possible to do so yourself, especially as it takes a lot of (travel) time, time you may not have. It is then a case of ‘wait and see’ until your next visit, one full of a mounting list of chores. Mow the grass, check the gutters, plough through the huge pile of junk mail and try to fit in the boiler service. Once at the property, a quick inspection and you soon realise the painter also needs to come back plus those few odd jobs around the house will need finishing off next time you are back. Your holiday house may provide a lot of holiday fun but it also creates work and worries on top of already having enough on in everyday life. Think of how valuable it would be to the hassle and workload taken care of. To be able to simply enjoy your holiday house for what it is intended – a holiday. Hestia is your really good neighbour. The one who regularly keeps an eye on things for you and stops by to take a look after a storm. We maintain your garden and house as you wish, so that you do not have to give it a second thought. Enjoy your holiday house, it’s what it is there for. Let Hestia do the rest.

When it has been some time since you last came back to your holiday home you often have to plough through the piles of mail, junk mail, leaflets and neighbourhood newspapers just to get through the door. Ideally you would throw it all away in one go but there may also be important mail in amongst them. In fact, some of it maybe so important that it should have already been dealt with. So let Hestia take care of this for you by sorting your mail and forwarding on the important pieces to your permanent address making sure you do not miss the important things. It gives you peace of mind, takes the stress out of your arrival and gives you a hassle-free start to your holiday.

You are once again looking forward to seeing the glorious expanse of Zeeland with its beautiful nature and the greenery that surrounds your home. But nature doesn’t sit still whilst you are away and needs to be maintained every now and then. Hestia therefore ensures that your garden receives the love and attention it deserves so that it is thriving when you arrive. This also includes maintenance of swimming pools, jacuzzis, paving and patios and garden furniture. All that is left for you to do is enjoy it!


It is always handy if someone else has a spare key to your holiday house. But you do of course want this key to be in good, trustworthy hands and to be kept in a safe place. We look after your key as if it is the key to our own home. It is not copied and not handed over to any one else. We open and lock up your home and keep your key in a safe for safekeeping.

With owning a home comes maintenance. Even with a ‘low-maintenance’ house there are still some parts that need to be checked on a regular basis. Central heating systems need an annual service, gutters have to be cleaned out, a lick of paint may be needed here and there and then there is that handrail that has come loose - you name it. You can take care of some things of course during your stay but there will always be some maintenance that you would rather outsource or just don’t feel like doing during your stay. So if you do not want to do it yourself how do you find the right people to take on these jobs for you. From installations to building maintenance we put the right professionals in place for each particular requirement and ensure that they have access to the property. Furthermore, we also make sure that your house is left neat and tidy afterwards and that all work has been carried out correctly. You don’t need to give it a second thought. You can specify yourself exactly what needs to take place or we can also carry out regular maintenance inspections of your home maintenance and report back. Whatever you prefer: maintenance that is made to measure.
