Right on the doorstep of the beautiful North Holland you find The Garden Room.
In the basement room of this more than 100 years old house, looking into the garden , you can have a pleasant and quiet stay.
The room itself is in the walk-out basement of the house, with a view on the garden. It is placed on the quiet side of the house, so you will hardly be disturbed by cars and other noises during the night. In the summer you are welcome to use the garden, with the big chestnut tree that we use as a parasol, outside table, hang mats and barbecue.
The room has its own entrance, and you will have your own key, so you can come and go as you please. Right next to the room is the bathroom with bath, separate shower and toilet. The bathroom is totally private for you. Also in the basement, there is a pantry in which you find a microwave, water cooker and coffee maker which are free to use. Here you will also find the washing machine, which you can use for a small amount.
I am an early riser and run my own company. So in the daytime you will not see much of me, though my office is only 5 minutes away and you can call me any time with questions or a problem. In the evenings I am at home usually.
My neighborhood is a mixture of old and new, just 100 meters from the river Zaan. Free parking. Enough shops and restaurants in the neighborhood, close enough for a spontaneous dinner. And of course the center of Amsterdam is only a few miles away..., I will be happy to point out how to get there.
If you want to go sightseeing, there is a million of possibilities. Of course Amsterdam is around the corner, but also the wonderful scenery Holland with its beautiful polders, the North Sea beaches which are great trough the whole year. You can go by bus (200 meters to the closest bus station that offers all kinds of connections to Amsterdam).
Breakfast is optional for 5,-- euro per day, per person.
The best way to go around Amsterdam is by bike. There are bikes available for you to rent (9 euro per bike per day)
Be sure you will have a warm welcome in the Garden Room! My goal is to make you experience Holland in its best possible way.
Airbnb price is EXCLUSIVE Breakfast

We lived in a very well equipped and decorated basement with a garden. The room are exactly the same as description, Robert is a caring host, we got valuable suggestions from him. Everything was so great.
Perfect stay in zaandam. Robert was helpful and took great care of us. He leaves you total independence to come and go as you have a private entrance to the room. Nice room and great bathroom. The only downside is the location, a little bit far from Amsterdam, but easy to reach by bus. Also, Zaanse Schans is quite near the house. Everything was perfect, thank you Robert.
We had a great experience at Roberts place. Robert was really nice and accommodating and was helpful with directions. The place was very roomy and homey feeling. This was the first air bnb I've ever tried and it was an awesome experience ! Thanks Robert
Robert offers a very nice place with particularly great access to Het Twiske and a nice section of Zaandam--close enough to Amsterdam to get there reasonably quickly; far enough to provide a bit of respite from the crush of tourists. Zaandam is a nice area too, and Robert's bikes for rent were a great option for us. Room is as described--very clean, peaceful, accommodating.
Wir waren schon morgens früh um 9 Uhr bei Robert, um uns einen Schlüssel zu holen und erst abends spät aus Amsterdam zurückzukehren. Er war sehr flexibel und zeigte uns direkt den Weg zum nahen Bus nach Amsterdam und bot auch seine Hilfe an, etwas im Internet nachzusehen. Zimmer mit Zugang vom und zum Garten und schönes Bad zur Alleinbenutzung, ruhige Lage und ein Parkplatz, kostenlos, direkt vor der Haustür.
Wir kommen gerne wieder.
It is a great place， clean and comfortable. The bed and bathroom are great. Well equipped. Will come back again
The room was beautiful. It was close enough to Amsterdam that you could bike if you wanted to or you could take a bus to the train to Amsterdam which costs 5 euros each way. Our stay was great. the only complaint is that unlike our other Airbnb stays Robert charged for everything. Such as doing laundry, breakfast, bike rentals, and a cleaning fee not included on the Airbnb cost.
We still had a pleasant time in Amsterdam thanks to Robert, we just want make the other airbnb renters of the extra cost.
About the Host, Robert
I am an early riser and run my own company. So in the daytime you will not see much of me, though my office is only 5 minutes away and you can call me any time with questions or a problem. In the evenings I might be home a lot. Depending on your schedule we can have breakfast together, or i will leave the breakfast ready for you.
I also provide a dinner service, so if you fail to make other arrangements, you can have dinner at the house.
Don't expect to much of my German and French language, but iw ill probably able to understand what you are saying.
