About the property

For cozy, intimate holidays, surrounded by nature and culture.

A charming stone and wood cottage house in a quiet and beautiful street (dike) at Amsterdam's picturesque suburb 'Durgerdam', just a mile away from vivid Amsterdam city center. It's a beautiful, luxurious and cozy holiday house at the IJ lake, built by the owner, Richard.

Very nice to spent your holidays here, with your family with children, or 2 couples.

It's a perfect combination to meet art and culture in crowdy Amsterdam-center, and coming home at your peaceful and quiet holiday home.

Durgerdam is just a few minutes drive away from the tram to the center of Amsterdam. By car it is 10 minutes drive to the city-center, with a bike 25 minutes, or 15 minutes by ferry to Central Station, directly and free of charge.

We are happy to advice you the best route for your day trips.

Ook we recommend visiting beautiful and famous old Dutch villages like Monnickendam, Marken, Alkmaar and Edam.

There is a large free car parking space for your car, just 100 meters walk from the holiday house. The bus stop is next to our house.

In fall, X-mas time / winter, spring or summer season, there's always a good occasion. If you love nature, the countryside and lots of different animals, you will feel happy here!

For food-lovers: In the full kitchen you can cook a good meal, there is a food store and a restaurant nearby with very good local products.

Views over the IJ Lake (= IJsselmeer) can be enjoyed during a walk or bike trip. In the summer, you can ook take a swim! Through all seasons, we have amazing sunrises and sunsets, see pictures :-)

The house is nicely furnished with all modern comforts, underfloor heating and good clean beds. You can relax on the terrace in the private garden at the back of the house. Sit under the pear tree with a view over the countryside. We providence a barbeque and a small chimney fireplace for a nice romantic evening. For the children we have a large trampoline.

Kitchen and bath towels (2 p. P.), Toilet paper, soap, salt & pepper are all provided. Bed-linen are included usefull. We offer our washing machine and ironing for long-stays.

TV, good and fast WiFi internet available. (Free of charge)

Pets are allowed, max 2. We have house rules for dogs:

Only downstairs inside, not on the sofa, and do not leave the dogs alone. Outside always keep on a string. Bring Their own basket and blanket.

Richard and Ruth were ever so helpful and very friendly. I was in contact with them before the trip and they already started making our trip a wonderful one. They greeted us warmly upon our arrival and explained how to get around and the places of interest in detail. The house is very cosy and we found everything we needed as it was very equipped. The views are spectacular (coming form a sunny island we are not sure to having streams and swans in our back yard) and the morning view from our bedroom made me start the day with a smile on my face. Worth every cent we paid for. Thank you Richard and Ruth :)

A memorable vacation

  • 4 of 5

Small but very cosy and clean vacation home with enough space for 2-4 people on the outskirts of Amsterdam in the Waterland. Beautiful scenery with lots of opportunities for adventures by bike or car. If you are looking for a place to find peace and quiet after a long day of exploring Amsterdam, this is the place! The hosts Richard and Ruth were most accommodating, always there when you needed them but never intrusive. They equipped us with lots of advice on what to see and do and even provided us with bikes to get to the tram station a few miles from the rental. Thank you, Richard and Ruth for a wonderful time in the Netherlands!!

A terrific holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Ruth's vacation home is the perfect place for a holiday visit. The home was clean and fitted with everything one might need for a stay. The back patio looking onto the nature preserve was lovely and a relaxing way to end a day of touring around Amsterdam. The city was easily accessible by train and the house was set in a cyclist's paradise. Richard and Ruth were extremely helpful and welcoming without being too much of a presence. If I were to come back to the Netherlands, I'd definitely book a stay here.

Séjour vraiment agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 4 jours sur Amsterdam et nous n'avons pas vu le temps passé. Richard et Ruth sont vraiment sympathiques et donnent de nombreux conseils forts utiles.

Leur maison est charmante avec tout le nécessaire pour y vivre. Les enfants ont adoré notamment pour le trampoline.

Besser geht es nicht :-)

  • 5 of 5

Es ist ein feines kleines Haus mit freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Vermietern. Dort gibt es Ruhe und Landleben und in kurzer Zeit ist man im lebensfrohen Amsterdam. Wir bekamen wertvolle Hinweise zum Park&Ride und zu Besuchszielen in der Umgebung.

Für unsere Tochter gab es das geniale und riesige Trampolin, die Meerschweinchen und die liebe Katze.

Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und empfehlen es gern all unseren Freunden und kommen bestimmt wieder.

Herzlichen Dank! :-)
