Peaceful haven just outside Amsterdam
We had a wonderful and special time - kids loved the trampoline, the cats, neighbour’s chicken , chatting to our hosts and cuddling their dog . Watching sports channel after busy days was also a plus for the football lovers. I enjoyed the magical evening sunsets by the water with a glass of wine, and the morning runs on the stunning dyke’s bicycle path. Thanks for the exceptional hospitality and tips - the location is ideal for both park & ride to Amsterdam, and driving anywhere else in less than an hour, Also the landmarkt supermarket is great for quality food 10 mins drive, with free parking . For 7 and 14 years old it was ideal, just note if you have smaller kids the steps to bedrooms are very steep , we also brought closes for the entire week - no washing machine. Richard and Ruth - thanks so much again for a wonderful relaxing holiday
Our family had a very relaxing stay in Waterland. The cottage was perfect for us! Very comfortable. We played lots of board games, especially MasterMind, which I haven't played since I was a teenager! And my daughter spent a lot of time on the trampoline!
It was so refreshing to bike to the grocery store, and around the beautiful, scenic surroundings. And we all loved the wildlife that greeted us every day. We used Uber one day to get downtown, and the train (a 45 minute walk) to get downtown.
We would definitely stay again!
Beautiful house right outside the city
Beautiful, peaceful retreat located right outside the city. Wonderful view of the rural landscape on a canal. We had a great stay and the hosts were wonderful. I highly recommend staying here.
secluded spot outside the City
Beautiful spot about 15 minutes from the Center of Amsterdam by car. Spotless accommodations, a narrow staircase that seems to be popular in Europe, and very hospitable hosts. On a canal near a farm, very private and a nice break from the hubbub of Central City Amsterdam. Would recommend highly.
Thank you, Dear Michael and family! Hope you had a Wonderful time in Europe, warm regards from (now) sunny Durgerdam
We really enjoyed staying here. The cottage is in a beautiful neighborhood. It was a few minutes outside the city and very near the subway. Our hosts were very kind and helpful.
Charming cottage with all the modern amenities.
We had a very enjoyable stay. Too short. Richard is a gracious and helpful host. The house is about 15 minutes outside of Amsterdam central in an idyllic village with 400 year old homes. Situated on a dyke and overlooking a serene landscape it was the perfect retreat after a busy day in the city. Thanks for everything Richard! We will see you again should we ever return to your beautiful city!
Thank you so much for writing us such a lovely review! We hope to see you once again. All the best xx R&R
