The cottage is just 2 km away from the famous Zaanse Schans which you can also visit by car or by bike. The newly opened restaurant the Hofjes is recommended and the terrace is a perfect place to overview the lake on a sunny day. Just off the parkingplace you can start a beautiful walk around the Schaalsmeer polder with lots of wildlife.
Public transport is close and bus and train will take you to Amsterdam Central station. Or just go by car and park for free in Amsterdam Noord and take the free ferry to the city center.

Ce logement atypique est en tous points conforme à sa description, nous y avons passé un superbe séjour malgré une météo capricieuse.
Le logement est situé près d'un lac et au milieu des polders, idéal pour les ballades en vélo.
Tuk et sa femme sont des hôtes vraiment accueillants, disponible et à nos petits soins !
Un conseil, réservez !!!
Cottage was as advertised, felt like home from the get go, piece of heaven with splendid outdoor possibilities near by. Tuk and Jose were both very warm and helpful with our holidays in Wormer. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a holiday spot that is not in the city, but still close enough for everyday visits to cities and outdoor activities.
Tuk welcomed us just like old friends. He picked us up from Wormerveer station at 11 pm and took the time to introduce us to all the amenities at his cottage. The garden with the whirlpool is just perfect for relaxing. There is a fireplace, a barbecue grill and you can even put a hammock between the trees.
The cottage was clean and had everything you need. Tuk left us some beer and a snack for breakfast in the fridge. You can find individual decorations all over the cottage which makes it a very cozy place.
The distance to the Wormerveer train station is about 30 minutes by foot. But that’s not a concern because you can use Tuk´s bikes (not brand new but perfect for the ride to the station or grocery stores like Lidl) or take the bus (400 meters from the cottage). The taxi ride is about 10 €.
We highly recommend this place for a short stay to discover Amsterdam or even for a longer trip to relax and discover the surroundings.
We really had some nice days in your cottage. The house is beautiful, lovely arranged, the garden is a good place to relax (whirlpool :)), the host is nice...they welcomed us with something to drink and to eat. They treated us like friends. We felt so comfortable.
A good starting point for sightseeing (railway station not far away...just a few minutes by car)
We'll se us again...shure.
The place is very lovely and charming. the kids loved playing outside and the surroundings is beautiful.

Me and my friends received a very warm welcomed and we enjoyed the staying. we felt like we were home. The surrounding is quiet and beautiful. House was neat and clean. we Really touched and appreciated that Tuk and his wife picked us up and sent us to the train station. A very good impression to Amsterdam because of them.
A really nice Cottage for 3-4 People. It's exactly like on the pictures. There was nothing we could complain about.
We would go back tomorrow if we could :)
Gemütlicher Bungalow für 3-4 Personen ( Ein Doppelbett).Zustand ist dem Preis entsprechen, sprich gemütlicher Eigenheim Flair mit Selbstbau Touch. Empfang war sehr freundlich und es gab sogar Bier vom Vorbesitzer. Konnten uns Kanus am fast direkt angrenzenden See ausleihen(5€ pro Person) und auch der Weg bis zum nächsten Laden ist machbar ( circa 10-15 min zu Fuß).
Der Bungalow ist in sich etwas schief, woran man sich aber gewöhnen kann. Vorallem der Whirlpool und die Veranda( ist allerdings komplett zu und nicht offen wie auf dem Bild) haben uns gefallen. Die Kommunikation lief immer bestens und alles in allem können wir Tuk nur weiter empfehlen.
About the Host, Tuk
I am an adventurous entrepreneur who works four days as a project engineer for a large steel company in the area. In my free time, I enjoy being in the surrounding nature. Water is my passion and surfing, sailing and kite surfing are my hobbies. My heart is my compass and I can be very satisfied with very small things in life. I have 2 children, my daughter who is studying in Utrecht and a son who lives with his mother. I also enjoy meeting other people from different cultures and backgrounds. My favorite holiday destination is Nepal, I like reading spiritual books and love all kinds of music. A good conversation round a camp fire with a snack and a drink is how I prefer to end the day. My motto: Enjoy every second of life because it can be your last. I look forward to welcome lots of lovely people in my cottage.
