About this listing
Characteristic house in the city centre of Zaandam, 10 minutes from Amsterdam Centraal or Zaanse Schans.
Welcome to my beautiful house on the Dam in Zaandam, with shops, restaurants, sauna and the train/ buss station around the corner. Within 1 minute from your room you’ll find yourself drinking a cold beer or wine on a terrace underneath my apartment.
Which can sometimes, with a special dutch festivalday be noisy in the weekends.
Think about Kinsday, Freedomday and such things. You can always ask me about the upcoming days.
--> I do always provide earplugs!
You'll have the best combination you can find; Dutch houses, landscape and Amsterdam nearby!
The house is over 100 years old with a very stylish interior. Modern industrial trendy kitchen with everything you’ll need and a bathroom with a lovely tub in it.
The room you are now watching is a real travellers experience. Do you like meeting other people? Don’t mind sharing a room?
In that case this is a perfect option for you. Sleep in a specially designed bunk bed and meet other travellers, share your information about Holland or read all about it in the magazines and books.
Don’t like this room or the idea of sharing a bedroom with other people? Look at my other rooms, I’m sure you’ll find something you like.
Interaction with Guests
I always welcome you in Zaandam and show you all the rooms in the house. Tell a bit about myself, ask about your journey and than show you your room where you can unpack your bags in peace and do whatever you want.
Sometimes when there is a big group of guests we go out to party with everybody and I also have some biketour-offers which I personally do.
I am always available for questions during your stay and always hope you have the best time here in Zaandam and Amsterdam.
And if i'm not around.. there are always my 2 cats ready for some attention or a hug. ;)
If you would like to visit Amsterdam you should go to the train station (4 min. walk) and grap a train to Amsterdam Centraal and you’ll find yourself there in about 10 minutes.
If you planned on going out there, there are night busses bringing you around the corner of my house from Fridays to Sundays. From Sunday to Thursday the train goes until 1:00 o´clock at night and starts again at 5:15.

Tips, trips and maps
Bike (when available)
-Is the house noisy from the pubs beneath? No, because of the surrounded houses they protect me from the noise.
But, remember you are in a city center. A weekend is always a bit noisy, and with Kingsnight you can expect music. But I always have earplugs available!
-Can I use your kitchen? Yes you can, as long as you treat it with respect and clean up after yourself.
-Is your house suitable for wheelchairs? No, you’ll have to climb some stairs.
-Are there any Vegetarian options in the neighborhood? Yes, lots!
If you have any more questions about the apartment, the environment or connections to Amsterdam, I would be glad to help you out.
Being born and raised in Zaandam, I can give you tips, trips and tricks you don’t find in the common tourist maps!
No smoking/drugs inside the apartment.
Respect my house and me and I will respect you.
I have 2 cats.
