                                                            Our stay was perfect. Margot is a wonderful host, who will give you privacy, yet will go over and beyond to insure your pleasant stay. The cottage is just perfect for 2 people, located in a quaint village with birds and cows at your window, yet only a 10 min car ride from the city center. Bikes came in handy to explore the gorgeous countryside and get some exercise after delicious Dutch cuisine. Clean, comfortable and peaceful.

                                                            Amsterdam is great, but it is also crowded and busy. This quiet little chalet is close to a bus stop that reaches Amsterdam Central in 10 minutes. You can also take the bus to all the small surrounding villages, so this is a great base station. Margot knows the area and can give you the low down on everything in the to see and do.

                                                            Lovely place, beautiful surroundings

                                                            We enjoyed a lot to stay at Margots little cottage, although the weather wasn't very nice, it was very windy. Bus is close, and we appreciated to have bikes during our stay. :)

                                                            Perfect for our honeymoon

                                                            Margot was the perfect host to us during our honeymoon stay. I’ll admit, we weren’t prepared for the 1km bike ride to the bus stop, but that was on us! The cottage was the perfect spot to get away after sightseeing all day in Amsterdam. A little far out from city center (about 25 minutes total between bike and bus to Centraal Station) but with planning on our part it was no problem! Margot and Bas were perfect, glad we stayed with them and would come back again the next time we are in Amsterdam!

                                                            Small cottage with steep ladder to bedroom

                                                            Murray P.Orange New South Wales Australia

                                                            We enjoyed our stay at the Amsterdam property but compared to other homeaway properties at which we have stayed in the same price range it has some limitations.

                                                            1. Limited kitchen facilities

                                                            2. Bathroom facilities just adequate

                                                            3. Upstairs bedroom not mentioned in the advertising

                                                            On the positive side Margot is a wonderful host. The position on the edge of Amsterdam is superb. Bus 1 km away. Easy access to Zaandaam and Volendam by car. Bikes are available and Margot had a prepaid travel card ready to access buses

                                                            Cozy place and perfect location + bikes!

                                                            Joel W.

                                                            Margot was extremely helpful and kind! By providing two bikes and being located right on the bike path, Margot's place is perfect whether you're looking to explore Amsterdam itself or make it out to the smaller villages and sights in the region. We loved being able to explore and come back to a quiet place in the countryside. I'd highly recommend staying at Margot's place as your home base to explore Amsterdam and the surrounding region.
