Experience

Where can I experience ANNA?

The first location to experience Cabin ANNA opened in April 2021. You can book your stay at Holenberg.com. Holenberg is situated at the Dutch wildlife reserve De Maashorst, in the middle of the Netherlands. You will soon be able to book Cabin ANNA at various locations around the globe.

When will new locations open for me to experience?

We will open different Remote Experiences in the near 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 other 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 development and sales is Europe and North America. However, we do 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 applications to pre-order for ANNA Stay. Making a reservation gives you the chance to be the first to receive an invitation to place the pre-order. Only 20 ANNA Stays will be delivered in Europe and the United States in 2022 and you have the chance 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 keep up to date on delivery and pricing.

Can (small) changes be applied to the design and configuration?

ANNA Stay and ANNA Meet are high-end designs, crafted with great love, care and passion. Unfortunately, we do not offer the option to change the ANNA Stay or ANNA Meet layout or design.

Can anyone own a Cabin ANNA? 

Yes. However, as Cabin ANNA balances perfectly with the natural environment, we recommend that you take care to blend Cabin ANNA with its chosen location in harmony with the surroundings. Most of the Cabin ANNA experience is provided by nature itself. The environment and ANNA are simply one. We strive to offer ANNA to people that share the same passion for the combined balance of ANNA and its natural environment. If our dreams match, we are delighted to work with you and establish ANNA in nature.

Purchasing Process

How much does ANNA Stay cost?

The target price is from €169,000 for Europe and from $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 placing a definitive order.

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 provide the client with everything needed for the interior. You will be able to order from these suppliers directly, subject to local availability. Clients outside the Netherlands will receive a mood board containing 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?

In Q2 of this year we will release the latest features and finishes, including pictures of the new ANNA Stay model.

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

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 change. With each step in the process, we will have more certainty regarding delivery times and price. Any changes will be communicated immediately to everyone with a reservation.

What are my obligations if I apply to pre-order?

Making a reservation through the 'apply to pre-order-form' is completely non-binding and you have no obligations. It offers us an insight into the demand and offers you the chance to be the first to receive an invitation to place a firm order.

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

If you’re not a European or US resident, or if you wish to purchase an ANNA Stay later than 2022, we invite you to apply for a pre-order 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 which Cabin ANNA is erected on, it may not need a foundation at all. However, in most cases, we use a screw foundation. This consists of 16 steel piles of 1 to 2 metres (3 to 6 feet) long that are screwed into the soil. This additional installation takes about two hours. The advantage of this kind of foundation is that it can be removed in less than 2 hours, leaving no traces behind in nature. We have partners to do this for you. But if you prefer to arrange it yourself, we’ll provide you with a screw foundation plan.

Can I build Cabin ANNA myself?

Cabin ANNA is easy to install, however precision is key. So we can deliver what we promise, we send our team to build the cabin for you. Depending on the location, the building process will take four to five days.

How does it work with Cabin ANNA 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. This must be customised because every location is different, as are the needs of every guest or owner.  Costs range from €5,000 to €30,000, depending on location and specific requirements.

Can you deliver Cabin ANNA as turnkey?

Yes, we can deliver Cabin ANNA as turnkey (including kitchen, toilet and shower) or without amenities to you. More information on price will follow soon.

What’s the lead time from order to delivery?

It takes three to four months to manufacture Cabin ANNA. The onsite construction takes one to two weeks depending on the location and other requirements.

Practicalities

How airtight is a Cabin ANNA?

Both the glass and wood sections of the cabin are fully airtight. Smart built-in brushes allow the wood and glass sections to fit perfectly, 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’ll love the cabin atmosphere and climate experience with its glass and wooden section layers.

Is Cabin ANNA resistant to extreme weather conditions?

Cabin ANNA is built for moderate climates. You will feel perfectly comfortable when the outdoor temperature is between -5 and 35 degrees Celsius. The cabin is thoroughly tested to withstand strong coastal winds and heavy snow loads. A local engineer should always check if a cabin is suitable for the local weather conditions.

Can Cabin ANNA be built anywhere in the world?

Theoretically we can build a cabin anywhere around the world. The more remote the better. We love the challenge which comes with establishing  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 living?

Yes, Cabin ANNA is perfectly suitable for permanent living. However, regulations differ from region to region, and some regions may not allow permanent cabin living. In the Netherlands for example ANNA is classified as ‘temporary accommodation’ (tijdelijke logies). Meaning it can be used as a second or recreational home. We recommend that you to check with local authorities.
