About the property

Two-person cottage with bikes on the former island of Marken near Amsterdam.

Our comfortable cottage is situated on historic former island of Marken. It is a separate part of our house that has previously been used as a post office. We rent from Friday to Friday to non-smoking people. We absolutely do not allow this! The apartment is ground floor and is fully equipped for two people. You have two bikes and you can park your car right next to the house. When the weather allows you to enjoy your own home on the sun terrace. The bus stop, supermarket, and restaurants at the picturesque harbor are all within walking distance. The beautiful surroundings Waterland is very suitable for rest seekers, hikers and birdwatchers .... and there is a direct bus connection (45 minutes) with bustling Amsterdam!

The places of interest Pek in Waterland, Monnickendam, Edam, and Volendam are all at bicycle distance, and in the immediate vicinity there are cheese farms and a mill to visit.

Also canoe or rent an electric boat in a neighboring place among the possibilities.

With Volendam there is a tourist boat connection, and the bike can accompany!

For shopping, you can of course go to Amsterdam, but Haarlem, Alkmaar (cheese market) and Horn (market on Saturday) are also very suitable.

The Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen is a favorite with our guests, and we recommend always on.

Nearby Amsterdam is bursting at the seams of course, museums, history and fun!

Marvelous Marken

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks here. Marjolein and Elbert were very helpful when needed, but gave us lots of space to do our own thing. When we needed help getting tickets or printing out a crucial form they were extremely helpful. Marken was our base for doing some serious biking to prepare for a bike tour in early September, and the weather was a bit windy but otherwise perfect. We had a great and memorable stay.

L'accueil chez Marjolein a été excellent: une bouteille de vin rouge accompagné de gâteaux typiques de Hollande, quelle heureuse initiative qui nous a fait très plaisir, surtout après des heures de trajet.

On se sent très bien dans cet appartement où tout est prévu pour vous rendre votre séjour le plus agréable possible.

Nous avons surtout apprécié la mise à disposition de 2 vélos que nous avons utilisé beaucoup, en profitant de toutes les pistes cyclables qui entourent Marken et Waterland.

Nous conseillons cette habitation sans hésitation!
