Fresh linnen and towels are included.
This attic room is located on the second floor, right above the shared bathroom which holds 2 separate sinks, a shower and a 2-person full-size bath. All rooms have central heating and thermostat.
You are welcome to make use of the fully equipped downstairs kitchen to fix a meal and make use of plates and silverware. Just put them in the dishwasher after use and ready you are! :)
The house is professionally cleaned on a weekly basis and on the day of your arrival as well.
My place is only 10 car or bus minutes away from Schiphol airport and it will take you 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.
i've got several bikes for you to use free of charge, however if lost orvstolen there is a replacement fee of €150.
Kids & pet friendly, and downstairs it's smoke friendly too. Upstairs however is strictly non-smoking.
Thanks to the possible downstairs sleeping arrangement the house is very suitable for handicapped guests.
Transfer to/from Schiphol or Amsterdam city center can be arranged if my schedule permits. For €10 its à lot cheaper than a taxi and much more conveniant than public transportation.
Public transportation is nearby, the bus-stops are 2 and 10 minutes walking away.
This room is one of the rooms in the villa so check out the other rooms listed as well!
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.
The closest bus stop is 200m away and from there it's10min to Schiphol.
Frans and his home were great!!!
He is so friendly, kind, attentive and intelligent!
I'm only sad that my boyfriend and I were there for only 1 night, wish I could've stayed longer =)
Frans has a beautiful home! The room was clean, tidy, and comfortable. Comfy bed, pillows and covers~
The bathroom was spacious and beautiful, with the most amazing shower- seriously!
Frans and Minck made us feel very comfortable, gave us yummy tangerines and even asked if we needed anything from the store^^
It was in a great location- down the street from the bus stop that took you to Schiphol in 10 min! (If you want to go to the city center - you can go to Schiphol and take the train to Ams Centraal- 15 min)
Also, the area is quiet and full of beautiful Dutch homes.
There are 2 restaurants within walking distance, a French and an Italian one. We tried the Italian one- it was affordable and very good!
Also, check in and out times were very flexible, which helped a lot!
I can't stress enough how *great* everything was- next time I go to Amsterdam, I'll definitely want to stay in Frans & Minck's home again! =)
Although very close to Schiphol, Frans's house is located in a nice, quiet street with unrestricted parking. The attic room is not spacious, but has a large, comfortable bed. One floor down you can use his big bathroom, with powerful shower and bath. Clean sheets & towels are provided and the WIFI is free & fast. However the whole house is in need of freshening up. The cigarette smell throughout the house will not bother fellow smokers, but the attic room would benefit from a fresh coat of paint and remplacement of the stained carpet.
Frans was friendly, but our wellcome was chaotic and we found his directions to the public transport a bit confusing. Both Schiphol airport and Amsterdam are easy to reach by bus, but you'll need a lot of time (count at least an hour each way for Amsterdam).
At 65€ a night it's hardly a bargain, if you compair to the nearby IBIS hotel: more conveniently located and offering rooms, with en suite bathroom from 64€/2p, breakfast buffet included.
Hello Ingrid, thanks for your stay and review and I would like to comment on it.
I agree that our welcome was a little chaotic but wasn't that mainly because you didn't answer my question about your arrival time and you arriving an hour before check in tim?. Neither did you confirm your friend coming too.
Travel time, according to other guests as well, to Schiphol is within 15min (200m walk, bus 10 min) and to Amsterdam app. 35min in 2 different ways.
Thirdly the advertising price for the Ibis Budget is €64 indeed. but including 6% tourist tax, parking fee and breakfast it is €106,50 for the 12m2 room incl shower, most without WiFi.
Frans est quelqu'un d' adorable, disponible, chaleureux et conviviale.
Il sait tout de suite vous mettre à l'aise et il parle très bien le français ;)
Sa maison est jolie, accueillante et très propre, le lit est immense ;) , elle est à 10 min de l'aéroport (très pratique) dans un charmant petit quartier.
J'ai passé un très bon week end et je le recommande.
A very enjoyable stay with Frans, room was really comfortable and facilities great. A short 1 night stay with everything you could possibly need. Frans airport pickup & drop off service is great, wonderful easy way to finish a wonderful holiday. I would definitely recommend staying with Frans, easy & fun.
It was a very great stay at frans. it was very good Atmosphäre und nice house very clean and i come back next time
I got stuck at Schiphol after a misbooking on my side. All hotels were full and i thought: "Lets try the help, I need a room tonight function". Frans was the first hit and it was a great hit.
He "rescued" me. Reacted within seconds I was only a 5 minute walking away but he picked me up with his car and made me feel welcome right away! Frans is a great guy!
Frans is the coolest guy in Holland! He is very kind and communicative. He's so amazing that he even picked me up from the airport! His house is perfect. The room is spacious, the bed is big and comfortable. The bathroom is amazing, big and clean. The bus stop is just a short walk away from his house. This is a great place to stay.
The house has a convenient location. Within a 20 minute walk from the house, you will find restaurants, banks,grocery stores, bakery and a windmill with museum. Less than a 2 minute walk takes you to the bus stop, with buses to the airport and city center.
Frans is a friendly guy who will help you with your travel plans and home stay. For example, he helped us with our bike and bag storage and provided us with a biking map. He will help you with a ride to and from the airport, with prior arrangements. You feel quite at home when you are there and I would recommend staying with Frans to other travelers.
Thank you Frans!
Add me to the list of those stranded at the airport who Frans rescued. It was already night, I contacted Frans who got back to me right away. He helped with my transportation to his place and back to the airport the next morning. His place was great, and very close to the airport. I had a great night's sleep and some good conversation. Frans is a very interesting, nice, caring, genuine host and person. Thanks Frans.
Voor mijn schoonzus zocht ik op korte termijn een overnachting nabij Schiphol. Frans reageerde zeer snel en adequaat op ons reserveringsverzoek en latere vragen. Hij ving mijn schoonzus en haar dochter gastvrij op en bracht ze de volgende ochtend naar Schiphol. Zij hebben daar een comfortabele nacht gehad. Hartelijk dank voor de goede zorgen Frans!
