Experience

Where can I experience ANNA?

The first location to experience ANNA opened in April 2021. You can book your stay at Holenberg.com. Holenberg is situated at the Dutch Wildlife Reserve De Maashorst, centrally located in The Netherlands. Soon you will be able to book ANNA at different locations around the globe.

When will new locations open for me to experience?

We will open different Remote Experiences in the nearby future, all beautifully located in different nature reserves in The Netherlands. Together with our valued partner Rewilding Europe we aim to open new locations in different European countries soon. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date on these exciting developments.

Will it be possible to experience ANNA outside Europe?

Our current focus for developments and sales are Europe and North America. Therefore, we hope to open new locations in North America as soon as possible. 

Availability and pricing

How many different models are available?

We have two cabin ANNA concepts, namely ANNA Stay and ANNA Meet. More models will be introduced in 2022.

How can I buy cabin ANNA?

We are now accepting the first reservations for ANNA Stay. Making a reservation gives you the chance to be the first to receive an invitation to place the actual pre-order. Only 20 ANNA Stays will be delivered in Europe and the United States in 2022 and you have the opportunity to become one of the first proud owners! You can apply to pre-order ANNA Stay here. Reservations for ANNA Meet will be possible by late 2022. 

When and where will cabin ANNA be available?

We expect to deliver the first ANNA Stays in Europe and North America in 2022. We are working hard to get Cabin ANNA available on other continents as well. Please subscribe to the newsletter to be kept updated on delivery and pricing. 

Can (small) changes be applied to the design and set-up? 

ANNA Stay and ANNA Meet are high-end designs, crafted with great love, care and passion. You like ANNA custom build as she comes. Changing the ANNA lay-out or design is not an option included. 

Can anyone own a cabin ANNA? 

Yes. However, as cabin ANNA blends in perfectly with her natural environment you must combine cabin ANNA with its chosen location in a suitable harmony. As we say, most of the cabin ANNA experience is provided by nature. The environment and ANNA are simply one. For that matter, we only offer ANNA to people that share the same passion for the combined strength of ANNA and its natural environment. If our dreams match, we are delighted to work with you and establish ANNA in nature.

Purchasing Process

What will be the price of ANNA Stay?

We have a target price from €169.000 for Europe and from US$ 217.000 for the United States. This price is a target price and depends on the choices you make and may fluctuate due to the cost of raw materials. The price does not include transport and installation. The final price and additional costs will be communicated prior to the possibility to place a definitive order at the latest.

Is it possible to purchase ANNA Stay fully furnished and equipped?

Yes, this is possible. A lot of care and attention to detail has been taken to design the cabin. It is our vision to ensure a seamless experience between exterior and interior design. For the Dutch market we have created a list of premium suppliers that will help the client with supplying everything needed for the interior. You will be able to order from these suppliers directly, subject to local availability. Clients outside The Netherlands will be provided with a mood board that gives a clear direction for materials, colours and fabrics that can be used in your decision-making process with local suppliers. 

When can I expect more specifications about ANNA Stay?

During the past few months we’ve been working hard on the latest features and finishes of the newest model of ANNA Stay. We aim to release the full specifications by Q1 2022 at the latest through our newsletter and on this website.

When can I expect delivery of ANNA Stay in Europe and the US?

We are cautiously daring to offer an insight into our delivery schedule. We aim to deliver in the Netherlands by Q3 2022, and Europe and the United States by Q4 2022. These goals are realistic but depend on many external factors and thus are subject to changes. Each step in the process will offer us more certainty with regard to delivery and price, possible changes will immediately be communicated to everyone who’s made a reservation.

If I apply to pre-order, will this obligate me to anything? 

Making a reservation through the 'apply to pre-order-form' is completely non-binding and doesn’t obligate you to anything. It offers us an insight into the demand and offers you the chance to be the first to receive an invitation to place the actual order.

I live outside the United States and Europe, can I still apply for a pre-order? 

Also if you’re not a resident of Europe or US, or if you wish to purchase an ANNA Stay later than 2022, we invite you to make a reservation, so we can contact you personally and discuss the possibilities.

Construction and delivery

Does cabin ANNA need a foundation?

Due to its weight the cabin does not need a concrete base foundation. Depending on the type of soil upon which cabin ANNA is erected, it may not need a foundation at all. However, in most cases we use a so-called ‘screw foundation’, consisting of 16 steel piles of 1 to 2 meters (3 to 6 feet) long that are screwed into the soil. The accompanying installations take about 2 hours. The good part is that this kind of foundation can be removed in less than 2 hours’ time, leaving no remnants behind in nature. We have partners to do this for you, but you can also arrange this yourself. If desired, we will provide you with a screw foundation plan.

Can cabin ANNA be built DIY?

Cabin ANNA comes with easy installation, however precision in doing so is key. To deliver to you what we promise we send over our team to build the cabin for you. Depending on the location the building process will take on average 4 to 5 days.

Does cabin ANNA come off-grid?

We can deliver cabin ANNA off-grid to you with a full off-grid package tailored to your specific needs and availability of resources. Because every location is different, as well as the needs of every guest or owner, this requires a customized effort. Cost involved will, depending on location and needs, range from 5.000 to 30.000 euro.

Does ANNA come turn-key?

We can deliver cabin ANNA turnkey (including kitchen, toilet, and shower) or without amenities to you. More information on price settings will follow soon.

What’s the lead time from order to delivery?

It takes us about 3 to 4 months to manufacture a cabin ANNA. The build-up on-site takes about 1-2 weeks depending on the location and other requirements.

Practical

How airtight is a cabin ANNA?

Both the glass and wood sections of the cabin are fully airtight. Smart build-in brushes make both the wood and the glass sections perfectly fitting, to protect you from rain, dust, and wind. However, you shouldn’t compare cabin ANNA with a regular house. Housing insulation values don’t apply in the same way as they do with cabin ANNA. Rest assured, you won’t feel cold, and you will love the cabin atmosphere and climate experience with its glass and wooden section layers.

Can cabin ANNA resist extreme weather conditions?

Cabin ANNA is built for moderate climates. Between -5 and 35 degrees Celsius you will feel perfectly comfortable. The cabin is thoroughly tested to withstand strong coastal winds and heavy snow loads. A local engineer should always check if a cabin matches local (weather) conditions.

Can cabin ANNA be built anywhere in the world?

Theoretically we can build a cabin anywhere around the globe. The more remote the better. We love the challenge which comes along with the establishment of cabin ANNA in remote places. Do keep in mind that more challenging areas will potentially translate in longer building times and therefore above average installation cost.

Can cabin ANNA be used for permanent habitation?

Yes, cabin ANNA is perfectly suitable for permanent habitation. However, from region-to-region regulations differ, and some regions may not allow for permanent cabin living. In The Netherlands for example ANNA is a ‘tijdelijke logies’ building. Meaning it can be used as a second or recreational home. We recommend for you to check with local authorities accordingly.
