My husband and I loved our stay at this charming countryside home! We found this home cozy, clean, and comfortable. We spent our three days here taking the bus to Amsterdam--a 30 minute ride away--and touring smaller Dutch towns, including Edam and Volendam. We were so grateful that the house came with bikes, and we went riding almost every day. We chose this home because it was outside of the city and would recommend that others who want a quiet, peaceful stay away from the city do the same. It's scenic and serene--a few mosquitos that slipped into the room at night were the only fault we could find! Additionally, Evert and Jacqueline were the perfect hosts! Evert picked us up and dropped us off at the train station upon arrival/departure, and when we dropped by to ask a question, they welcomed us to their home on our last evening for tea and cake. Couldn't recommend enough! Stay here, and it will undoubtedly be the highlight of your trip!

We loved this cozy and special place . . it was just what we were hoping for. The location is beautiful right on the canal with farms all around. My daughter especially thought the ferry rides across the canal were her favorite. We were able to use bikes to get everywhere we needed.

This charming home was the perfect hub for our trip. We were there to explore Amsterdam but actually our favourite times were spent in the Airbnb. The location is amazing with gorgeous views and evert and Jacqueline provided everything and more that we needed. The fridge was full when we arrived and there was everything we could need from bikes to beers! It was only a twenty minute drive to central but less than 10 minutes to Edam and the most beautiful fishing village Volendam. We hope to be back again soon, thank you!

This home was, by far, my favorite AirBNB accommodation on our 2 week road trip through Europe. It was far more beautiful and cozy than I imagined it would be, and the hosts were very warm and welcoming. I would 100% recommend this accomodation to anyone staying in the area -- and the town of Volendam is a must see!

Evert was a great host and we felt good at the whole stay. The House is really really charming. The Interior decoration is made with much love and we didn't missed anything. The location is idyllic, surrounded with sheeps and a wonderdul garden. The North Sea or Amsterdam aren't far away. We really loved it, It's a place to be! Thank you for everything! :-)

About Evert

My wife Jacqueline and I live here for over 30 years already. We bought the house as an old cowshed and rebuild it several times. The last renovation was when our three kids were all moved out of the house. We tried to recycle as much parts of the old house as possible and we are very pleased with the result.
We really love the quiet and green environment around here, in the summer period we love to tour with our bikes packet with baggage in Holland, but also other places around Europe. Every winter we hope for a good ice skate season, though that seems to be rare nowadays. Since we both recently retired, we will then enjoy spending our time reading next to the fire place with our cat Poeki.
