About the property

Loft/bright, free standing cottage for 2, breathtaking view

This guesthouse is a 70 square meter design studio located in the garden of an historic family home, built in 1572 on the village lane.

A broad view of the landscape

An oaken galley kitchen

A bathroom with an ample bath tub

Floor heating

A fireplace

Two joined twin beds (box spring)

Wifi internet

You are kindly requested not to smoke inside

There is parking space next to the house.

It's a ride of just 35 minutes from Moeders Erf/Twisk to Amsterdam North's NDSM parking area. You can park there for €1.30 per hour. From there you board the ferry which in a few minutes brings you to Amsterdam Central Station. Or you could leave your car in Hoorn where parking costs €2,30 for a whole day nd there take the train (just one stop) and after a half hour you arrive at the newly restored Amsterdam Central Station where you find trams and busses and the memorable canal bot tours.

After spending a day in fascinating Amsteram you return to the quiet coziness of Moeders Erf.

Both Schiphol Airport and the North Sea are just a half hour away with the car. And in five minutes you can be at the IJssselmeer with all its fantastic possibilities for bicycling, hiking,swimming and sailing.

About A.C.M. Buijsman

I an a retired journalist and mother of 3 grownup children

A.C.M. Buijsman purchased this house in 1998

Why A.C.M. Buijsman chose Ijsselmeer

Thirty years ago I fell in love with this village and the sixteenth century home where I now live. The studio was built in 1998 to give us more room for the family. Now that the children are gone I enjoy welcoming my friends there as eel as travelers from all over the world.

What makes this house unique

The atmosphere in the guesthouse is truly remarkable. After a few days I see my guests looking more and more relaxed. Perhaps the guesthouse atmosphere plays a roll in this…or the beauty of the natural scenery? Or maybe it's the always surprising North Sea? The pull of the art found in the museums in the little towns surrounding Twisk and Amsterdam? Perhaps…. Some guests have told me they were very happy with the outlet center, Batavia City, on the other side of the dike that goes from Enkhuizen to Lelystad.

Owner's Response: De historische steden rond het IJsselmeer en Amsterdam. Dat was het reisdoel van de Engelse gasten in week 24 . Alkmaar, Enkhuizen met de heerlijke tocht langs het water naar Hoorn, Edam, Volendam, Marken. Altijd fijn om te horen dat 'Moederserf' de verwachting van de gast overtreft...

Quit spot on stunning location

  • 4 of 5

The property is well kept and was very clean. Green plants give the property a nice home feeling

A perfect place to work quietly or relax for some days.

at night you will sleep like a baby, there's absolutely no sound from the outside

Anna, the owner, has a great eye for detail, which is reflected in the interior and the linnen that comes in a really nice package.

séjour agréable

  • 5 of 5

séjour très agréable dans ce loft calme, situé dans un joli petit village. une très belle vue, un jardin donnant sur une rivière où les vaches du champ voisin viennent boire et où on a vu des cygnes, ce qui est sympathique. Anna est une propriétaire très gentille et discrète. Bien situé par rapport à plusieurs lieux de visite et un supermarché à 5 kilomètres ouvert le dimanche matin, donc bien pratique. A conseiller !

Perfect for comfy relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The loft ist located perfectly at the countryside and still not far away from the next city and Amsterdam. It is cozy and furnished with a personal touch of the very hospitable owner. We had a wonderful time here and will come back next year.
