Garden studio close to Amsterdam

House - Entire home/apt · Carel Fabritiuslaan, Amstelveen, North Holland 1181 TE, Netherlands

The Space

Our beautiful, newly renovated garden-studio, is situated in our back yard. It has its own entrance, so you are totally independent from our house.
In the kitchenette there is a water-cooker and a microwave and all the utensils you would need to prepare a light meal, but since the bed is in the same space at the kitchenette and we are trying to keep the aromas to a minimum - we do not provide a cooker or oven. Breakfast can easily be prepared as well as a microwavable meal. There is a refrigerator too.
The studio is located just 20 minutes from Amsterdam city center, and very conveniently situated near public transportation and the highway. Metro, tram, and buses, as well as one of the biggest shopping malls in the Netherlands are all within walking distance. Metro 51 and tram 5, which will both take you to VU university, Zuid train station and WTC center, the city center, and Amsterdam Central train station.
The neighborhood is quiet and picturesque with canals with ducks and swans in every direction, and plenty of parks and playgrounds. The perfect place to relax after a busy day of touring.
The studio was recently turned into a living space, so everything is brand new. In the main space there is a sofa which opens into a comfortable bed, a closet, TV and DVD, and a kitchenette with an island for eating on. We prefer our guests not to cook in the studio, since it's in the same space as the bed, but we do supply you with a electric kettle (plus tea and coffee), and a microwave.
There is a separate bathroom with shower and a separate toilet.
The room is wonderfully cosy and warm.

Interaction with Guests

You have your own private entrance, so you don't have to interact with us if you don't want to, but we are a friendly family and always happy to meet new people, if you are interested.

  • This is a gorgeous renovated detached garage in the back garden of the host family. I'll try to summarize all of the positives, as there were no negatives at all: welcoming, kind, accommodating hosts (including the cat and dog!), very modern, clean and comfortable apartment with all the basics plus tea, coffee, milk, etc., 5-10 minute walk from bus station (which is a short €5 ride to the airport), tram 5/metro 51 station, supermarket and many stores, great quiet suburb location, private entrance through the alley, and as much privacy as you want in the apartment yet with the hosts a few meters away and the garden to relax in. I didn't want to leave!

    Thanks Carrie for your warm words. It was lovely having you, and I glad you enjoyed your stay.
    All the best and many more travels...
    Maya.

  • I had a great and relaxt stay at Maya's place. Both Maya and her family are great hosts, they even left me some drinks and cookies as a welcome present. The studio is very modern and cosy exactly as can be seen on the pictures. You have your own (wireless) internet and entrance gate through the garden. If you are looking for a good (cheaper) option for a stay in the great Amsterdam area, this is very good choice. Parking is free and all facilities are included.

  • I had a fantastic stay at this lovely studio apartment. The flat was very clean and nicely furnished with a very comfortable bed. The apartment is on a quiet residential street located a little way out of the city centre and is easily reached by public transport. Maya was very friendly and welcoming with good advice about how to get around. I would highly recommend staying here and would definitely come back again!

  • Maya is a very nice and kind host. Her studio is comfortable and clean and she provides anything her guest may need. The separate entry is useful and allows the guest to have his Independence.

  • The experience at Maya's Garden Studio was really nice, Maya and her husband were very attentive and friendly, we felt really comfortable since we got there. The studio is perfect for a couple, it's really cozy, everything is new and it was spotless. Maya had everything prepare for us and our surprise was that chocolates, coffee, tee and cereals were in the studio for us just in case we feel like eating some snack or breakfast, just little details that made us feeling as we were at home :) The combination with the transport is quite good, you can be in the city center in not much time. If we'll go back to Amsterdam we'll come back again to Maya's studio for sure, our long weekend in Amsterdam was just perfect.

  • Maya & her family were great hosts - they were very helpful & accommodating. The studio we stayed at was very comfortable and clean. The location is great as well - away from the hustle & bustle of the city, but near to a metro station (7 minutes walk). Amstelveen is a really pretty neighbourhood. We really enjoyed our stay there and would definitely come back if we visit Amsterdam again!

  • Maya has a great house in a untouristy yet wonderful part of Amstelveen. The location is just a few minutes away from public transport and a shopping center, including a supermarket and some restaurants. The studio was very clean and quiet, great for a good nights' rest after a busy touring day. Maya and her husband communicated well and I had no troubles finding the place or checking in. They even welcomed me with a few breakfast items stocked in. I would definitely return and look forward to another visit.

  • Place - Located at calm serene part of Amstelveen the garden outhouse is excellent with lots of light and clean air :) Its well connected with tram/metro/bus/night liners in the vicinity. The indoors are very modern, modular, clean and sufficient for a comfortable stay.

    Host - Maya and her family are very warm and welcoming, she made sure I had everything I needed for a pleasant and comfortable stay.

    I highly recommend this place and host!

About
We are a family with 3 daughters. My husband owns his own business involving import and sales and I raise our daughters and work at group trainings and I give lectures on cinema and society. We are both originally from Israel and we have been living in the Netherlands for 9 years now. Before that we lived in the US and in Israel. Our daughters are 12, 10 and 5. We travel quite a lot and prefer having someone enjoy our house in the times that we are away. We have a cat that prefers the company as well, but is not demanding...
