Susan was a lovely lovely host, and her cottage was beautiful - a quiet, calm oasis after a day out in Amsterdam sightseeing. Upon arriving she gave us clear directions on how to take public transit, showed us where all the utensils, extra towels etc were, and even offered us her bikes during our stay. She was also very flexible with check in and out (depending of course on whether she was expecting other guests before or after.) The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for a great dinner, and the grocery store is a nice ~8 minute scenic stroll away. If we get the chance to come back to Amsterdam, we would for sure love to stay in Almere with Susan again! Thanks so much Susan!

We had a great time at Susan's place! The Cottage was exactly as advertised and we really enjoyed the sun on the terrace. Almere is a cool little city and the apartment is within walking distance of the water. If you feel like it then Amsterdam is only a 30 minute drive away. Susan was very helpful and extremely well prepared to answer any questions we had. All in all just a great place to stay and we would definitely come back

My boyfriend and I had a great stay in the blue garden cottage! The home was such a comfort to have and to return to after a long day. The home is even more adorable in real life and her garden in the back is so lovely! Upon arrival, Susan offered us her bikes so that we could travel much quicker across Almere which was very helpful. She also allowed us to use a pair of ov-chipcaarts, which facilitated our travels across Almere, Amsterdam and Delft, as they negated the need to stop and purchase tickets. The home came with all the kitchen essentials and we were able to save a lot of money by cooking our own meals, which we purchased from a nearby grocery store well within walking distance. The bed was very comfortable and everything was perfectly clean. We could not have been happier with our stay!

My partner and I just returned from 4 days stay at The Blue Garden Cottage and it was absolutely perfect. Quiet, peaceful, pretty, well-equipped, comfortable, warm and just what we had hoped for. Although a little ways travel to the centre of Amsterdam (which is what we wanted - away from the hustle and bustle), it was very easily reached by excellent public transport close by. The cottage was charming - and one of the comfiest sofa beds I have slept on! Despite having warm weather I was desperate to make use of the wood burning stove, for which Susan provided a good stock of wood and firelighters. On our last day she very kindly lent us her bikes which was fantastic!! We cycled around the local area, to the supermarket (5mins away) and to the port close by (10/15mins) along a lovely cycle path next to the water front. We had a delicious Italian meal (BravaCasa - we recommend the pizza!!). Susan was friendly, helpful and accommodating... Thank you, the days went too quickly! All the best, Kiva & Mo

We had a nice stay at Susan's place. Her place is very cosy, quiet and tidy. The place is just a few walks away from the bus station. She was also very accomodating and nice. I would highly recommend Susan and her place to anyone who is looking for a nice place to stay in Netherlands.

The apartment is wonderful, with a pleasent view to the beautiful garden. The bed is comfortable, the kitchen is superb and everything is shiny and clean. There is a supermarket nearby and the neighborhood is great. Susan was an awesome host, she helped us with everything we asked her about, she'd even offered two bikes for us.

We had a lovely stay in the cosy and serene blue cottage. Perfect for two with a surprisingly comfortable sleeper couch. Susan is very friendly and welcoming. The transport network is well connected. We purchased a 3 day Amsterdam regional ticket for €33 which allows you access to trains, busses and trams. We managed to see most of the region with the card.
