The large building is known as a former stage stop for mail riders. Nowadays it's a restaurant.

Third hint: 
We are on an island. The most famous son of this island explored Australia. But he mistook kangaroos with rats.

Now it's easy. A nice little dutch (frisean) island w/o any motor cars. Many years ago we spent some holidays there. KR Arno

Leider so ganz und gar nicht meine Gegend. Auf Basis der Hinweise hab ich ein bisschen gesucht, leider erfolglos. Bin gespannt auf die Auflösung. VG Martin

Die Adresse des Hauses ist Postweg 4. Es ist schon eine typische Szene, wie man sie auf Nordseeinseln finden kann. Mich hat ein wenig verwirrt, dass es auf dieser winzigen Insel so weit abseits vom einzigen Ort und Hafen eine Poststation gegeben haben soll. Da geht's doch nirgendwo mehr hin. Vielleicht weiß Matthias etwas darüber? LG Arno

Congratulations to Arno. YES... It's Vlieland. A great place to relax. Description and some remarks about 'The Posthuys' will follow.

A few remarks regarding 'Het Posthuys' 
In former times, many merchant and war ships anchored offshore east of the island of Vlieland. To enhance communication between dealers, admirality and ships a postal service was set up.
The Posthuis was built as stage stop for mail riders. The postillons rested there until the water level at the Vliehors (the large sandbar south of the Posthuys) was low enough to make their way via the island of Texel to the cities of Delft and Amsterdam.

Danke Matthias. Durchs Watt von und nach Texel also, das hätte ich mir eigentlich auch denken können. LG Arno
