About this listing

Nice clean & quiet 16m2 attic room (2 stairs up!) with a great double bed, a desk and opening window. Only 15min away from Schiphol Airport and flexible check-in -out times & pick-up service if my schedule permits. Shared fridge, microwave & bathroom.

The space

Are you looking for a cosy bedroom with a nice double bed? This bedroom hold a very comfortable Auping King-size bed, manually adjustable, a Philips radio-alarm clock and hi-speed Wifi. The small window on the picture has been replaced by an opening window double the size.
Fresh linnen and towels are included.

This attic room is located on the European 2nd floor, so 2 stairs up, and is the only room on that floor. It's located right above the shared bathroom which holds 2 separate sinks and a shower. All rooms have central heating and thermostat.

You are welcome to make use of the small fridge,microwave, plates & silverware on the 2nd floor to fix a quick meal.

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 on average about 30 minutes to get to Amsterdam Museumplein (city center). That being said, this is a quiet place in a safe and friendly neighborhood. There is free and easy parking on the premises 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, Chinese 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 convenient than public transportation (€5,- pp).

Public transportation is nearby, the bus-stop is a 200m / 2 minute walk.

This room is one of the rooms in the villa so check out the other rooms listed as well!

Guest access

Shared fridge & microwave on the 2nd floor, shared bathroom 1st floor, shared WC on ground floor (European).

Interaction with guests

I guess it's up to us to find a balance between interaction and privacy. I'm always available for any assistance and advice. Take a look at my reviews to get an impression! ;)

Other things to note

In the weekend the public transportation runs less frequent and if you're not comfortabele with two, European size, stairs up this room is probably not for you! ;)

Frans is an incredible host - he goes out of his way to help and accommodate guests. He came and picked us up from the airport, provided us with a map and bus cards to travel Amsterdam and a fresh basket of apples for us. He is friendly, genuine and helpful. His accommodation is very clean and nice as well as close to public transport for easy access to the city. I would absolutely recommend this accommodation as Frans's hospitality was unlike any we'd experienced.

Upon arrival I was pleased as Frans made check-in pleasant and stress free. The house was comfortable and we had everything we needed. He was nice enough to let us borrow his bike. I quickly fell into dislike when, after asking if it would be okay if we did a load of laundry, the machine door jammed our clothes were stuck and our train was leaving in an hour. This was early in the morning as our train left at 6 am. I had to wake Frans and he was visibly and vocally upset with me and I felt very disrespected. I have never had any issues with any other AirBnB hosts and our family has traveled to many different places. It was very uncomfortable. Also, It costs $15 USD for my husband and I to get to the city center each day from this location. Looking back I would have paid more and stayed closer to the city. The house was okay but I would not choose it again.

Response from Frans & Minck:
If you would have asked me before using the machine you would not have to wake me up at 0400h at night. When my explanation on how it works wasn't enough and you demanded me to come up and do it for you I got a bit grumpy indeed! ;)

He is a nice host. His house is very near Schiphol. I booked a double room and the room was good. His price is reasonable. Also you can ask him ab location. He is very friendly and free to talk. I will chose his service again for sure.

I stayed with Frans and Minck to recover from jetlag and to readjust to European living following a long stint in South America; and I couldn't have chosen better! The family home is near to the airport, with Frans being great at picking up/ dropping off although easily accessible by local bus; the home was in a lovely quiet place, with a comfy bed, lovely bathroom, and basic amenities for making a hot drink, keeping food in fridge. I really enjoyed chatting with Frans, and whilst I didnt spend much time with Minck, he was lovely and polite. Frans was able to help me to figure out the local area, where I found several supermarkets and a restaurant that sold gluten free food; plus a local Thai massage place next to a local windmill which was perfect after a long flight. There are also so lovely park areas to wander in nearby. I really enjoyed my stay, and would stay again if in the local area. Thanks so much Frans and Minck xxxxx

Beautiful place, very comfortable and the hosts are wonderful. Extremely kind and professional people who seem to love having guests and go above and beyond taking care of them. :) If transiting to/from the airport this is a great place to stay!

Frans was a very helpful guest- gave us advice on renting bikes, transit, and even picked us up from the airport! Our stay was less than 24 hours but it was the perfect place to stay to be near the airport for an early flight the next morning.
