Beautifully located self contained cottage, only 8 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam, with amazing views over the dutch countryside. 2 bikes included!
Freestanding cottage with own bathroom, kitchenette, living area and upstairs bedroom with super comfortable double bed.
The cottage is on the same grounds as our house, surrounded by our large beautiful garden, with open view over the countryside and next to the canal that leads straight into Amsterdam! We live in a perfect place just 10 minutes from Amsterdam and 15 minutes from lovely trips to Volendam or Marken and the rest of Waterland.
So it's the best of both worlds: close to the city and still you're in a nice and quiet area with lovely views over typical dutch landscape with meadows and grazing cows.
We have 2 bikes available for biking trips around Waterland, with it's cute historic villages, or you can rent a boat and explore this area from the water or even navigate your way into Amsterdam for a trip to the van Gogh museum, Anne Frank house or see stunning new architecture on the waterfront of the IJ. Shopping, clubbing or visiting a wonderful restaurant or brewery is also highly recommended!
Coffee and tea are always available, as well as a few basics to get you started.
Nearby is/are a pancake restaurant, tea garden, organic farms to visit, dress yourself up in Volendam like a true fishermen or find yourself in Marken, a village like it was 100 years ago where you can watch how they carve wooden shoes. Also de Zaanse Schans with its old windmills is well worth a visit.
There are lots of things to do and we would gladly help you with tips, maps and planning.
Who are we? We are Bas & Margot, our children Bink and Pippa, and our cats Mimoun and Nooky. Up till 3 years ago we lived in the centre of Amsterdam, our beloved city. But because we wanted more view and a bit of quiet, we moved here...and haven't regret it since!
Parking is free in front of our house and there is public transport 2 minutes from our house. We also know a parking garage in the city centre that won't set you back to many euros!
You can use our beautiful garden. It is also possible to do some washing in the washing machine in the big house. If you need anything at all we will always try to help you out!
No smoking in the house
