A beautiful house 25mn bus from center of Amsterdam. Two big double bedrooms upstairs and a bedsit downstairs, living room and balcony, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. Groups larger than 5 are subject to approval: please send an inquiry.
Marilyne's home is wonderfully located and has all the amenities you could want. It was centrally located with easy access to Schipol, Haarlem, Amsterdam Central, and Keukenhof. It was quiet and great for our group size. Loved the neighborhood and all the local restaurants.
Although I never got to meet Marilyne, she was very good with keeping in contact with me and helping me with each and every question I had about the place and Amsterdam. Even if I never met her, the binder she provided was probably more useful than past hosts I've had. The place is just as accurate as the photos and it was so refreshing to have all that space. The neighborhood was nice, very quiet and peaceful. Although a thirty minute bus ride from Amsterdam, it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town.
My only complaint would be that the heaters didn't seem to work as well as my friends and I would have liked. It was really cold. I'm sure during the summer months it wouldn't matter though.
By far the best placed I've stayed through Airbnb. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam!
Marilyne was great, apartment was great and easy to navigate ( t small issue was the blow up bed deflated quickly). Transport wise it's easy to the city or airport. Marilyne left great notes on the surround area so it helped to be able to find grocery store etc
La casa è davvero carina da vivere. Ottime le camere da letto. Amstelveen è collegata benissimo con il centro. Potete prendere il tram 5 e la metro 51 della gvb (la fermata del tram dista 5 min a piedi dalla casa,quella della metro è i poco oltre ma potete interscambiarvi durante il percorso,ed è compreso nella carta multiday ticket) oppure gli autobus ( tariffe separate). A pochi minuti trovate un centro commerciale fortissimo dove acquistare tutto quello che vi serve. In casa trovate tutto quello che occorre e l'ambiente è ordinato e pulito. ottima base di partenza per Amsterdam ideale per famiglie e piccoli gruppi.

Excellent séjour, dans une ville sympathique et bien située (commerces, bus... a moins de 5 min) . Très bel appartement les pièces étaient convenable, nous n'avons rencontrés aucun problème . Même si Marilyne n'a pas pu nous recevoir , elle nous a très bien expliquer tout a savoir sur les lieux et comment trouver les clefs ... .
Nous étions a notre aise durant notre séjour! Merci pour tout Marilyne .
Marilyne is very helpful and very good at responding at all my query. Marilyne is not able to meet us during the check in but she left a long and helpful message to me regarding the house.
The neighbourhood is quiet and clean, there's a shopping center nearby the house which is quiet convenient for us. The living room is well equipped with heaters which is warm enough for us but the heater in bedroom is not warm enough for the cold weather.
Overall, we had a great night stay at Marilyne's house.
I'm French of Italian descent and I used to live in the Netherlands for over 10 years before moving to the US with my husband who is from New York. We are returning to Europe in July for a new job but we will be living in between France and Holland, so my beautiful house just 20mn from the center of Amsterdam is periodically available to welcome guests! My husband Brian will welcome you personally to your second home and my Dutch friends will be available to answer all your questions and give you up-to-the-minute tips on what to do in Amsterdam. I am about to publish a book in France so I might not be available during your stay, but I will do my utmost to meet up with you on arrival and answer all your questions within minutes: I am always connected. We are a happy international crowd who loves to travel and we can help you plan out your trip anywhere in Europe according to your interests: feel free to ask questions!
My house has been dubbed "the happy house" by everyone who has stayed there: it provides a beautiful living space a bike ride away from the center of Amsterdam. Upstairs you will enjoy 2 big rooms with 2 super comfortable double beds and a bathroom with a bathtub as well as a power shower, while downstairs is a very large living room with a lot of light pouring in from the huge windows on both sides. Don't worry about linen, towels, plates - all essentials are provided. A little alcove in the living room is used as a bedsit with a single bed and can accommodate another guest - another person can also sleep on the 8-seater leather couch: it is not convertible but it is very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped (dishwasher, oven, microwave - you name it, it's there) and cable TV and wireless internet are set up. Enjoy a quiet drink on the large balcony before hitting the city! As the house is not being lived in, we guarantee that it will be perfectly clean and wait for your arrival in pristine condition. There are free parking spaces just a few yards down the road and a footpath access to the lovely Broerse park that is also a birds reservation less than 10 yards away from the door. On the other side, you are a few minutes walk away from the biggest shopping centre in Amstelveen that also features a big bus station from where you can whizz to Amsterdam in 20mn - and also to many other beautiful cities for day trips! Amsterdam city metro is also behind the shopping center.
Get in touch for more info! Safe travels, Marilyne and Brian
