Overview

South Amsterdam Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 4

Our holiday home is situated in the countryside on a dike next to the picturesque river “Het Gein”. A typical Dutch surrounding where you can bike, walk, horse ride or canoe. In the summertime you can swim in the river Het Gein. Nearby are also two golf courses, De Hoge Dijk (18 holes) and Old Course Loenen (9 holes), and there is plenty of water recreation possible on the various waters in our area: Gaasperplas, Loosdrechtse Plassen and Vinkeveense Plassen.

Amsterdam is also nearby: with a bike it takes you 5 minutes to subway station Gein, which takes you in 20 minutes to the city of Amsterdam. With a car you can drive in 5 minutes to the P+R subway station of Gaasperplas, or in 15 minutes to the center of Amsterdam.

In the summerhouse of our farm, which was built in 1865, and situated just 200m from the city border of Amsterdam you will find your holiday home. On the first floor there are 2 bedrooms each with an individual bath room, there is a living and a large kitchen with dining table. The folding doors brings you to the big private garden which gives you a panoramic view to the surrounding pastures with grazing sheep and cows. On the second floor you will find a very spacious loft-like sitting area and large dining table with fire place. There is also a tv with dvd player.

The house has a rich history: until the 60’s the summerhouse was a cattle shed with hay-loft and the farm was leased by various farmers families. Further the land was sold by the Amsterdam municipality to the famous Dutch sculptor Nel van Lith. On the old hay-loft she gave sculptor lessons to our Queen Beatrix (then Princess). From 1995 a garden architect lived here and she designed the English/French garden that is still intact today. Since May 2010 'Het Gein' is situated in the summerhouse.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed the house; having a separate living room upstairs was a plus. Easy access to metro/train into Amsterdam. We found your description of the property and its amenities to be accurate, it was clean upon arrival and you and your husband were very helpful. We would definitely recommend the property to anyone wanting an extended stay in a rural setting. the one-lane road was a bit of a challenge, but no one ended up in the river, so all's well.

best place to enjoy Dutch country and city life

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this charming farmhouse close to Amsterdam was in one word WONDERFUL. as a Dutch national living in the US, I know what to be looking for to enjoy Holland the best way possible. The farmhouse is very light inside, you can enjoy both sunrises and sunset. it has all the amenities you can wish for. while downs stairs features kitchen and open space with TV and access to a patio and garden, which is beautiful by the way, it also has 2 BR/BA. upstairs room spans the whole house and has a TV, fireplace and a huge table which easily seats 8 people. bottom line - when I would come back to NL with my family, I would stay here again.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place with a wonderful hostess! This was the ideal place for us - close enough to Amsterdam with a quick 10 minute drive to the Gaasperplas Metro station (free parking!) yet worlds away from the big city. The metro ride was about 25 minutes.

A beautiful home with a beautiful garden with plenty of room for our family of four.

We would love to stay here again!

Beautiful property with easy access to Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous property, beautifully decorated, friendly and very accommodating hostess (she took delivery of our Ajax tickets prior to our arrival). Surroundings were very quiet and peaceful after a stay in Oslo. Easy to find, groceries close - great kitchen, train/tram close. I would definitely stay again - for longer this time.

A very nice place

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights here, and would have loved to stay longer. The house is beautifully located, very nicely fitted out and everything works perfectly. The owners are very friendly and efficient. One does need a car though, as the village is some way off. We visited Amsterdam daily from here, using the train. Parking at the station is free and after a 25 minute train ride you are in the middle of Amsterdam. We sure hope to come back again in the summer time, to enjoy the gorgeous countryside as well.
