A charming stone & wood cottage house in a quiet and beautiful street (dike) at Amsterdam's picturesque suburb 'Durgerdam', just a mile away from Amsterdam's vivid city center. It's a beautiful, luxurious and cozy holiday house at the IJ lake, built by the owner, Richard.
Very nice to spend your holidays here, with your family with children, or 2 couples.
It's a perfect combination to meet art & culture in crowdy Amsterdam-center, and coming home to your peaceful 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.
We also recommend visiting beautiful and famous old Dutch villages like Monnickendam, Marken, Alkmaar and Edam.
There is a large 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 season or summer, there's always a good occasion. If you love nature, the country side and lots of different animals, you will feel happy here!
For food lovers: In the 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 also take a swim! Through all seasons, we have amazing sunrises & sunsets, see pictures :-)
The house is nicely furnished with 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 country side. We provide a barbeque and a small fireplace for a nice romantic evening. For the children we have a large trampoline.
