Our family (3 of us) spent 6 nights here the week before Easter. The location is great, a quiet street but very close to everything. We walked everywhere, no need for public transit, but if you want it is quite close by as well. Highly recommended.
Our family of 6 loved our 5-night stay in Esther's cozy apartment! We had a rental car, so Esther's apartment was a fantastic base for us to explore Amsterdam, the Kinderdijk windmills, The Hague, as well as many many tulip field regions. There is also a bus station right near Esther's apartment, so that is a great option, as well.
Esther was a terrific host! Her family's apartment was immaculate and charming and it had everything we needed to enjoy our stay.
The town of Edam is quiet and quaint, which was wonderful to come back to after busy days out. If you just stay in Amsterdam, you will miss the charm and character of the Netherlands! The drive to and from Amsterdam and the surrounding areas were magical-the canals and bridges, farms, animals and wildlife! Make time to explore the area! Edam is known for its delicious cheese, but the local bakery's coffee cake & delicious loaves of bread and the chocolate store were our kids' favorites :-) Our family highly recommends Esther's lovely apartment!
