About Fred en Kelly Snel

We opened a Bed & Breakfast in our attractive merchant’s house, characteristic of the Zaan region – and a listed building, dating from 1694 – in the spring of 2008. What began with a request from friends for accommodation for ‘their’ interim manager for one or two nights a week soon developed into our Bed & Breakfast.

Our U-shaped house – with nine rooms, three bathrooms, and a large enclosed garden – is ideally suited both to receiving guests and to our work as a writer and musician. Moreover, we have discovered the enjoyment of welcoming guests.

Since March 2008 a steady stream of guests, ranging from interim managers and businessmen and women to tourists from all corners of the world, have felt ‘at home’ in our Bed & Breakfast.

A little more than one year after we began our Bed & Breakfast we – to our great surprise – won the Dutch Bed & Breakfast Award, 2009, followed by the Eropuit in Eigen Land Award 2010-2011, apartment category.

We look forward to greeting you at our Bed & Breakfast!

Fred en Kelly Snel purchased this apartment in 2005

Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had the good luck to have chosen Fred and Kelly's place to end a three week vacation with a short stay in Amsterdam. The guest house, located in an historic house built in 1694, is decorated with exquisite taste and equipped with much thought given to what any traveler may need. For us, the location was perfect; it is within walking distance to the outdoor Dutch museum, in a quiet village with great restaurants and coffee shops nearby. A major supermarket can be found a short walk away if you want to eat in. While a bit out of the center, the public transportation system offers easy access to town or the opportunity to travel by train to some of the outlying areas of Holland. We loved sipping our glass of wine in the beautiful private garden with fountain just outside our flat. Our hosts offered friendly personal service without intrusion. And when our taxi that we had pre-arranged to take us to the airport did not show, we were grateful for that level of care. Fred quickly assessed the situation and called a local company who only took 10 minutes to get there and safely got us to the airport on time, avoiding what could have been a travel disaster. Throughout the whole process, Kelly was responsive and very easy with which to communicate. It was a wonderful way to end a wonderful vacation. We have only the highest recommendations for their guest house and would love the opportunity to visit again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your friendly words and recommendations. It was a pleasure to have you here. We hope to see you back some time. Note: with 'coffee shops nearby' is meant terraces and NOT coffee shops were you can smoke pot/marijuana/weed (the European meaning of coffee shops). We don't have such coffee shops in the area and have zero tolerance towards drugs.

Totally Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This guesthouse is gem among places to stay in de Zaanstreek and very affordable! Kelly and Fred are very helpful in getting you comfortable a their place. You won't be surrounded by tourist attractions, although de Zaanse Schans (wind mills) are within walking distance. We will definitely return here and I will give the sauna a chance as well. You gotta see it to believe it!

Our five day visit was a delight.

  • 5 of 5

Many pleasant surprises -- fresh flowers, fruit, and chocolates, a cheery electric fireplace and sauna added to the comfort of this pleasant and completely furnished apartment. We enjoyed a white ibis and resident magpie in our private garden. Seven minutes to the train station for trips to Amsterdam, walking distance to the outdoor museum and the market. Welcoming host and hostess. Definitely a 5 star find for us.

Es war ein sehr erholsamer, entspannter Aufenthalt in tollem Appartement mit herzlichen Gastgebern

  • 5 of 5

Bei Ankunft standen frisches Obst, feine Pralinen und Wein bereit. Zur sehr freundlichen Begrüßung gab es Kaffee und Tee. Die Einführung von Frau Snel in das Appartement und die Ausführungen zu Freizeitmöglichkeiten der Umgebung und Fahrtalternativen nach Amsterdam waren sehr hilfreich und informativ. Das Appartement ist perfekt ausgestattet.

Das zusätzliche gebuchte Frühstück war phänomenal, reichhaltig und abwechslungsreich; es wird morgens gebracht und man frühstückt ganz ungestört im Appartement.

Sehr genossen haben wir die Sauna und den Whirlpool.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und werden sicher noch mal wieder kommen.
