About This Listing
NO FRIEND GROUPS ACCEPTED. FAMILIES ONLY PLEASE.
Beautiful, newly renovated house, just 20 minutes from the center of Amsterdam, and very conveniently located near public transportation and the highway. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, sunny garden, and easy access to all major public transport.
The house is NOT suitable for 5-6 adults, but for a family with children, as 3 of the 4 bedrooms are children's bedrooms.
Dear guests, please drop me a note inquiring about availability before you actually try to book.
Our beautiful, newly renovated house is just 20 minutes from the center of Amsterdam, and very conveniently located near public transportation and the highway. Metro, tram, and buses, as well as one of the biggest shopping malls in the Netherlands are all within walking distance. Metro 51 and tram 5, which will both take you to VU university, Zuid train station and WTC center, the city center, and Amsterdam Central train station. The neighborhood is quiet and picturesque with canals with ducks and swans in every direction, and plenty of parks and playgrounds. The perfect place to relax after a busy day of touring.
The ground floor is a huge open space with living room (flatscreen, cable) play area (plus piano keyboard), modern kitchen with island (including big SMEG stove, dishwasher and washer/dryer), and a work area. On this floor there is also a spacious toilet. From here you can go out to a backyard fully equipped with BBQ, and patio furniture where you can enjoy the sun.
On the first floor there are 3 children's bedrooms, a bathroom (with whirlpool) and a separate toilet. Two of the children's rooms have a bed that opens up into a double bed, if necessary. One child bedroom has a 2/3 bed suitable up to age 8.
The master bedroom with a comfortable double bed is on the top floor. This room also has a flat-screen with a DVD player.
The house is super-comfortable, spacious and beautiful.
It can easily accommodate a family with children. We do have a cat, Fluffy, who we would ask you to feed if you are around (if not the neighbors will do it.)

Notre famille (6 personnes) a passé un très bon séjour dans la maison de Maya pendant qu'elle-même et sa famille étaient en vacances. Nous ne nous sommes pas rencontrés, mais Maya est très organisée et le fonctionnement de la maison était décrit précisément dans un document qu'elle nous a transmis, avec toutes les règles de vie à la maison.
La maison est spacieuse et très bien équipée, dans un quartier calme de la banlieue d'Amsterdam, proche de tous commerces. La station de métro/tram est toute proche ; il faut environ une demi-heure pour rejoindre Central Station en métro. Nous avons fait également la connaissance de Fluffy leur chat. Après chaque journée de visite bien remplie, les enfants ont pu se détendre en jouant avec la cuisinette et à la wii. Nous étions comme à la maison. Et pas besoin de prendre draps, serviettes, sel, vinaigrette, liquide vaisselle et tout le reste, tout est fourni !
Nous sommes venus en voiture et nous avons pu la garer gratuitement à proximité de la maison. Très appréciable également.
Je recommande !
We arrived on 20. December and were met by Maya´s friend who gave us the key and explained shortly the important things to us and then we settled down and were very happy we chose Maya´s home to stay at. Enough space for us, a great SMEG stove to cook on and everything you need to feel home in an instant.
We enjoyed playing WII,relaxing on the big couch and just having a chilled time out from home. Fluffy the cat was a great companion and we enjoyed having her around - especially my daughter ;-)
We spent Christmas in Amstelveen and Maya´s home was the perfect place. Located only a couple minutes from the stadshart, where a superb Shopping mall fullfilled all Shopping dreams :-).
Only a short drive to the sea in Wijk aan zee and to the Bazaar, a huge indoor market where you find everything you can dream of. We always buy herbs, olives and spices there and love the buzz.
We can recommend Maya´s home for families and for couples, if you need lots of space and - in spring/summer - a nice little garden to enjoy coffee or any other kind of meal.
Great place to be - strongly recommended - thank you! :-)
The home of Maya and her family suited our needs perfectly. Since we are from Amstelveen as well, our house was being renovated, both families met upfront. Hence, the house needed no further explanation upon arrival. The stove in the kitchen is ideal and invites you to cook, even if your mind is set on holidays. The fact that Netflix is available was a nice asset as well. Although a permit is needed in the street, a mere 50 meter away, parking is free. But above all, we are going to miss Fluffy the cat. Being dog persons ourselves, having two Dachshunds, this creature turns you to like pets instantaneously.
Nuestra estancia ha sido muy confortable. La casa es muy bonita y amplia y dispone de jardín privado. Nuestras hijas disfrutaron con Fluffy, la gata de la familia, y con las bicicletas. Está ubicada en un barrio residencial muy tranquilo y con varios espacios para lon niños. Está muy cerca de un Centro Comercial y muy bien conectada con la Central Station de Amsterdam con metro y tranvía.
Nuestra estancia ha sido muy agradable y Maya nos lo dejó todo muy bien preparado y documentado.
We had the most amazing stay in Holland, and mostly because of the house, and wonderful hospitality. I highly recommend this accommodation; it is perfect for a family with kids or a group of friends. The place was clean, spacious, and comfortable, and had many great surprises (Toys for the kids, food in the fridge, Piano- Just to name a few). The design and attention to detail in this newly renovated place was great.
The house had everything we needed and more. We felt at home right from the moment we stepped in, and Maya was available to us at all times. Nothing was too much trouble for her; she was always on hand, responded quickly and helpfully to any questions.
The location is perfect for exploring Holland with Kids; Amstelveen is very friendly, everything is within short walking distance. There is a rich weekend market, a shopping center, out door activities for the whole family and it’s only 15 minutes Tram ride to down town Amsterdam. We will definitely stay here again and recommend to all our friends and family travelling to Holland. Fantastic!

About the Host, Maya
We are a family with 3 daughters. My husband owns his own business involving import and sales and I raise our daughters, work at group trainings and give lectures on cinema and society. We are both originally from Israel and we have been living in the Netherlands for 11 years now. Before that we lived in the US and in Israel. Our daughters are 14, 12 and 7. We travel quite a lot and prefer having someone enjoy our house in the times that we are away. We have a cat that prefers the company as well, but is not demanding...
The garden studio is used primarily for hosting our family and friends, but when it's free - we enjoy renting it out to airbnb guests. I love meeting people from all over the world, and to make them feel at home.
