If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to the expensive hotel prices in Amsterdam or are looking for short stay family accomodation, this is the perfect house for you.
The house is an ideal base for exploring Amsterdam and surrounding areas and accommodates a family of 4 or 5 easily. The house has been recently renovated, tastefully decorated and equipped with modern appliances. It is located in Naarden, a charming, historic, fortress village, shaped like a 6-point star. The house has a newly renovated, modern, open kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and “American” refrigerator. The dining area and living room are spacious and open up to the garden, a perfect spot for enjoying the late summer evenings. There are two bedrooms upstairs and a bathroom with a separate shower and a tub. You also have access to a washer and dryer. There are two other rooms that are locked and unavailable.
The house is comfortably furnished and includes:
- smart tv, stereo

The house is close to Amsterdam (20 km), Hilversum (10 km), Utrecht (30 km), Schiphol Airport (30 km), all easily accessible by train from the Naarden-Bussum train station, which is a 15-minute walk or 5 minute bike ride. Trains leave to Amsterdam, Utrecht, Hilversum and Schiphol every 15 minutes. The house is also conveniently located close to highway A1 and there is plenty of free parking in front of the house. The central location and access to main highways makes it an ideal starting point to almost every destination in the Netherlands.
The charming center of Naarden Vesting has excellent restaurants and is a 10-minute walk or (less than) 5 minute bike ride from the house. Naarden also has wonderful access to beautiful cycling and hiking trails through some of the most beautiful nature areas close to Amsterdam and is a great area for outdoor sports.

Lori네 하우스는 조용하고 깨끗한 주택가에 있으며 바로 집앞에 어려움없이 주차할 수 있고 아주 가까운 곳에 적당한 크기의 마트가 있어 편리하게 이용할 수 있다 집안 내부는 잘 정돈되어 있었고 여러가지 집기가 구비되어 있어 지내기에 불편함이 없었다 사용요금도 적당하고 가격대비 만족도가 높았다 암스테르담 시내 중심가까지 차로 30분정도 거리라 접근성도 좋은 편이다 가족 5명 모두 잘 지내고 왔다 친절히 맞이해준 Lori 에게 감사한다
Lori's place was wonderful and Lori was a great host. While we did not get to meet due to my busy trip, Lori was hardly absent. She was in communication with me the entire time, making sure that I had gotten in safe and everything was good at the house. Indeed, everything at the house was perfect. Lori left clear directions for everything and trusted us to use it. The beds were very comfortable, the house was very clean and spacious.
The only downfall was the commute to the city by train, but that is something we knew we would have to endure in advance. While the commute was long it was great to see what a neighborhood outside of the city was like. It was extremely quiet and felt very very safe.
I am so happy I stayed in Lori's house! It made my trip to Amsterdam exponentially better!
Lori's house was as advertised .. spacious for a family, neat and clean.
I fell in love with Lori's house since the first time I saw it in airbnb.
It's a beautiful house in the lovely little town of Naarden.
The house is very cozy and homey in a quiet neighbourhood.
It is fully equipped. I found everything I need in the house.
We really felt like home.
Lori was very detailed with everything. She provided us with the amazing manual book about the house and some information about getting around the city. It was also very easy to communicate with Lori.
Lori's house was just perfect for our family of four.
For sure we would love to stay in Lori's house again someday.
I highly recommend staying in Lori's house to my friends and other airbnb's members.
Thank you Lori!
Dejligt hus i en flot by.
Lori var i huset ved ankomst for at tage imod os. Da jeg er født i Naarden behøvede vi ingen hjælp til omgivelserne, men der findes en fin hæfte med vejledninger og forslag.
Lækre værelser, flot og rummelig stue og køkken. Og juletræet var smukt og prikken på i-et
Vi glæder os til at komme tilbage til sommer.
Lori's apartment was perfect for our family of four. We loved having the space after returning from our trips to Amsterdam each day. Lori was great to communicate with and made the instructions very simple.
The apartment is in a great neighborhood outside of the city. We drove to Weesp each day and took the train into the city. Parking was free and it was only 7euro round trip. You can't beat that price, especially with what we saved on our hotel by staying in this roomy home.
It was clean. The beds were so comfy and the kitchen was perfect. We were in heaven.
Lori's house was everything we expected and more. It is centrally located , not far from Amsterdam or Utrecht and only one hour from Rotterdam. She arranged to meet us and brief us, and everything was as promised. Clean, pleasant, no problem to find, easily accessible from the motorway, plenty of free parking. Literally a home away from home. On our next trip to the Netherlands we will definitely stay again. Thanks Lori.
Comfortable cozy and Lovely home. Fully equipped. Loved our stay at your home. Naarden is beautiful. Would love to visit again. The manual was to the T :) Thank you for everything Lori
Originally from SF Bay Area, I'm American and have lived and worked in the Netherlands for the last 20 years. I work at a university in Amsterdam and travel a lot. Naarden is a terrific place. I've lived here for the past 15 years. Close to Amsterdam but far enough away to relax. I hope to be able to host you if you plan to visit the Amsterdam area.
