My place is only 10 car or bus minutes away from Schiphol airport and it will take you on average about 30 minutes to get to Amsterdam city centre. That being said, this is a quiet place in a safe and friendly neighborhood. There is free and easy parking on the premisses and in the street.
Badhoevedorp is right between Schiphol airport and Amsterdam city center. Nearby facilities, within half a mile, include two small town shopping centers, three supermarkets and several simple and luxury restaurants. (Italian, French, Chineese and Dutch) as well as the local pub "The Old Dutch"
There is a playground around the corner, a public indoor pool, a mini animal-farm for kids and countless opportunities for great nature walks.
Kids & pet friendly, and downstairs it's smoke friendly too. Upstairs however is strictly non-smoking.
Transfer to/from Schiphol or Amsterdam city center can be arranged if my schedule permits. For €10 its à lot cheaper than a taxi (€20) and much more conveniant than public transportation (€5,- pp).
Public transportation is nearby, the bus-stop is a 2 minute walk.
This room is one of the rooms in the villa so check out the other rooms listed as well!
Shared fridge & microwave on the second floor, shared bathroom 1st floor.

I guess it's upto us to find a balance betweeen interaction and privacy. I'm always available for any assistance and advice. Take a look at my reviews to get an impression! ;)
It's a quiet neighborhood with a playground around the corner. Free and easy parking and all the shops you need within half a mile. The closest supermarket is 300m away.
You can buy tickets in the bus but they are quite expensive. With an "OV-Chipcard" you can travel all busses, trains and metro's in NL with a 70% discount. From Schiphol to my place for example it's €5 versus €1,88
There are 3 bus stops within 200m.

In the other direction bus 192 will take you to Amsterdam Osdorpplein in 15min
There are 6 busses per hour to Schiphol, some direct and some with one transfer but you'll always get there within 15min.
Busses to Amsterdam centre go up to 12 times per hour. Depending on your destination and time of day it will take between 30-50min including transfers.
From the third busstop bus 356 will take you to Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena (Ajax) or in the other direction to Haarlem (Beach) in 25min.
The stop for bus 145 is around half a mile from here, a 10min walk. This bus will take you to the Rijksmuseum in the centre in around 30min.
Very good location, and friendly people... Was helpful, and picked us up from one of the train stations (but not the one we arrived at) for 10 euros. He also gave us a map as well as suggestions on where to go and an idea on how long lines where for places like the Anne Frank house.
Great for a short stay, Frans had everything we needed for a comfortable night before our early flight the next day.
Even though I didn't get to meet Frans in person, he was very thoughtful in making arrangements with his regular guest to receive me and my boyfriend at his place. The room was neat and comfortable. We had a good night resting at his place as his neighbourhood is very peaceful at night. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Thanks Frans for having us! :)
Frans et son fils sont des hôtes très sympathiques,la maison typique du pays est agréable et conforme aux photos.le quartier est calme bien que proche de l'aéroport ce qui est très pratique lorsqu'on a son vol très tôt le matin!! Et bien desservi par les bus,en (website hidden) faut bien 35 à 45 min pour rejoindre le centre d'Amsterdam en fonction de la circulation.
Frans est très accueillant,agréable et (website hidden) est venu nous récupérer à l'aéroport moyennant 10€,et le soir nous avons passé la soirée à discuter et les enfants à jouer..c'était très agréable impression d'être à la maison!!
La chambre est spacieuse,confortable,un petit frigo,des fruits,du thé et du café ainsi qu'une bouilloire sont à disposition dans la chambre.
Pendant son absence,Jad avait pris le relais et il est lui aussi très sympa.
En bref,très bon séjour.
Frans was a kind host. He helped me to bring my baggage to my room and also provided me a vase for the flowers that I had. The room is like in photos, the house is very nice, cozy and quiet even when Schiphol airport is near. Frans help me to find how to go to the airport and from the house is very easy, I just take a bus!
I had an excellent experience staying at Frans houses, the description of the room and the neighborhood is exactly as it is in reality.
I was a few hours, but I felt very comfortable and frans was very hospitable.
If I return to Amsterdam, sure that I come back to choose Frans!
