About this listing
5 ★ listing! We offer free breakfast every morning.
Our beautiful home is located in a much sought after area of Hoofddorp. The town itself is located very close to Schiphol International Airport. Getting into to the center of Amsterdam is either a quick bus/train journey or a few minutes by car. The room is 11 m2 and has 2 single beds that if needed can be converted into a double. A cot/crib is also available for a young child. Cable TV and Internet connection are included. The bathroom is shared with the family and has a walk-in shower area. We do ensure that you have use of your own toilet during your stay.
We also arrange FREE pick-up from local train station and drop-off at Schiphol or even Amsterdam Central (if possible).

While you're staying with us we want you to feel at home. If you want to use the kitchen for cooking - no problem. If you want to join us in the lounge - no problem.
Please note that due to our flexible checking in and out times, it might be possible that there is a slight overlap with previous guests. Please bear this in mind if you require an early check-in time.
Interaction with Guests
Whatever you're most comfortable with.
We live on a small island (well it's surrounded by water!). The architecture of the island is done in the old style and provides plenty of rustic charm. The neighbourhood is in a quiet area away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. Family friendly and plenty of green parks and lakes.
We are a non smoking family and therefore there is no smoking allowed inside the house. However, you are most welcome to smoke outside in the garden.
We ask that you do not wear outdoor shoes upstairs and to respect our personal belongings. Please do not feed the dogs from the table, this unfortunately makes it difficult for other guests who may not be so comfortable around animals; apart from that, only to enjoy and relax since this will be your home while you are with us.
If you have any question, please don't hesitate to contact us!
Married to Sarah. Both British expats living in The Netherlands. We have 6 children between us (not all living at home!). We love our life and the home that we live in.
