Authentic historical wooden house in the beautiful village Marken. Stunning scenery in a picturesque environment known for its costumes, wooden shoes and tranquility. Look out for black swans locally!

The space

This house has maintained all of the authentic features of an original Marken house, whilst providing all mod cons for your comfort and convenience.

Guest access

The whole house is accessible, including the sunny garden with beautiful views over the island.

Interaction with guests

I'll always be there to welcome you and give you some helpful tips with interesting local information.

Other things to note

Paid parking costs about 9 euro a day on the parking lot just outside the old centre, about 300 meters away from the house. Only locals have permits to drive into the old centre.

The house is a charming old fisherman's house, with modern amenities, but with thin walls. Therefore it is important to notice the neighbours. House is perfect for people who search a calm, relaxing environment.

Bart was the most wonderful host that one could ever ask for. He was friendly accommodating, and easy to talk to. He gave us pointers for things to see in Marken and Amsterdam. He even drove us to Amsterdam when we missed our bus! Marken was also wonderful--it was great to see some of the beautiful Dutch countryside while Amsterdam is still accessible from a 40 minute bus ride on Bus 315. I can only recommend Marken and Bart's place!

This is a great, atmospheric old house in an historic district of Marken, which manages to be central (a few minutes' walk from both the car park/supermarket and harbour) without being on the umbrella-wielding tour group trails. It's a beautiful location. The house itself is well restored and kept very clean. The pictures are accurate, although the picture of the main living/dining room doesn't show how good it is - it's a big, bright, light-filled room, which is a very pleasant place to spend time. The kitchen does well too for its size - we ate in every night (with a small child) and it worked very well. Marken is a great place to visit, and it's a pleasure to be there, in particular in the morning and evening. As well as the harbour and Kerkbuurt, there are very pleasant short walks or bike rides to be done to Rozenwerf, the lighthouse of "Paard van Marken" with its little beaches" and the sea walls around the island. The Deen supermarket in town does very well for its size, but for anything else, Monnickendam is a short journey away (and, frankly, Amsterdam and Purmerend aren't that far either). Bart was a great host - friendly, helpful and flexible throughout. Thoroughly recommended.

We really had a great time at Bart's house! The island of Marken is the perfect place to discover Amsterdam with a little one! The house is very nice, well equipped and calmly situated.

Really enjoyed our stay in this picturesque village. Our daughter enjoyed all the local birds/ducks/ farm animals and play park. Bart's house was a great base to explore the local area and we felt very at home. Thank you!

Marken is a lovely place to visit and we stayed for a week. The house is full of character and very peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated the relaxed atmosphere , Bart was very helpful and friendly. We particularly enjoyed walking down to the habour to see the sunsets and the wonderful wildlife. We were sorry to leave.
