The cottage is located within a 5-minute walk from the Gooimeer beach and 10 minutes walking from the Kromsloot Nature Park, where you can enjoy cycling or have a nice hike.

We have free parking.
You can reach the center of Amsterdam by car within 35 minutes.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Prettig, schoon, rustig verblijf met uitzicht op mooie tuin. Bedbank was voor ons prima, maar wellicht voor oudere mensen minder comfortabel.

  • I will come out and say that this was the nicest AirBnB space I have ever stayed in. I'd be happy to live here if this was available back in the States. I give this space my highest recommendation and encourage anyone visiting Holland to check this place out. The only drawback is the distance between Almere and Amsterdam (1 hour commute via public transportation), but still is worth it.

  • We had beautiful days in Susan's apartment. It was really comfortable, clean and well equipped. There was a small terrace with a view over Susan's beautiful garden. It is very quiet, so great to relax.
    Walking distance to the beach in 5 minutes - supermarkets are also near.
    And if you want to go to Amsterdam, the best route is to the P & R station Almere Muziekwijk. There you can park for free and every half hour there is a train directly and currently € 11.60 (round trip) to Amsterdam Central Station.

    Thank you Susan for the great time and we would choose the apartment again!

  • Отличное место - гостевой деревянный домик недалеко от Амстердама

  • Een erg leuke en rustige buurt, waar je naar hartelus kan fietsen en wandelen. Het was tof dat we de fietsen konden gebruiken. Wij waren erg tevreden over het huisje. Doordat wij in Nederland waren voor school, hebben wij heel wat tijd in het huisje gespendeerd. Het was heel erg proper en alles was aanwezig wat we nodig hadden. Doordat je de deuren naar het terras volledig kon openzetten, hadden wij het gevoel dat we in de natuur aan het werken waren voor school. We willen zeker nog eens terug komen voor een échte vakantie!

  • Dank je wel!
    Our stay (my Boyfriend and Mine) at the Blue Cottage was nice. It rained a lot so we used the wifi to watch some movies and also took advantage of the telly. The kitchen is well equipped, the bathroom is nice, too. Everything is very light, cozy and clean. We found a lot of information about Almere and the surroundings. Susan and her husband were traveling themselves, but their friend Nel welcomed us kindly and warmheartedly. She showed us everything and let us use the bikes. She is a very nice person and I am happy to have met her. One day the weather was nice and sunny (at least most of the time) so we took the bikes for a ride. I can only recommend using the fiets around the area because of the outstanding bikewaysystem.
    Almere Gemeende is interesting for people who get excited about architecture, city planning, nature and innovative thinking regarding the before mentioned things.
    The bed is a unfoldable couch but is ok for a few nights.
    All in all we had a nice stay.

  • We had a great time at the blue garden cottage. The cottage looks exactly the same as on the pictures. Susan was a great, friendly and helpful host. The "bed" was comfy and everything was very clean.

    We fell in love with Almere. Its a beautiful town and we reccommend the restaurants at the harbour.
    But we spent most of our time in Amsterdam. The easiest way to get to the city is to park at a P&R location and go by tram afterwards. We always used the Zeeburg P&R and it took us 25 Minutes from Almere to the city centre of Amsterdam.

    We would love to stay at the Blue Cottage again. Thanks for the great weekend :-)

  • Lovely pristine cottage with quiet garden. Susan welcomed us and showed us around and made us feel comfortable. There were helpful maps to help us to get anywhere we wanted. Everything was very clean and tidy. A really nice experience !

    It's a bit of a hike to get to Amsterdam though (maybe we were unlucky that WE because of works on the rail network system).

  • This was our first Air BnB experience and I spent a long time choosing somewhere I thought was good. This was an excellent start and from the moment we arrived, we were very impressed by the cabin. It is exceptionally clean, quiet and very private. It looks identical to the photos so you really know what you are getting. The sofa bed was easy to assemble and more comfortable than many beds I've slept in! There is a lovely bathroom and storage space as well. We really enjoyed our time there and the area was a totally different experience to Amsterdam, so great to experience both areas. A car is essential and it took 15 mins to drive to the closest P&R (which seems to have shut but free parking was available) and 20 mins on metro 53 to central station. Really recommend the cabin! Thank you!
