Great house in a lovely village

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderfoul week in this great house with our 2 kids (4 and 7 years old).

First of all the owners are very nice, helpfull and reactive

The house is very well equiped in a very peacefull environment, you will see all kinds of birds during your stay in this nature paradise, you can even enjoy the barque to go around starting from the garden.

The house is very close to a school in which we enjoy the playground with other kids of the village, very cool for our childeren to meet others kids.

So many things to discover around by bike, by the way the house was rent with plenty of bikes that you can enjoy. We also enjoyed to get to Amsterdam without any stress with a boat that you can take few km from the house and getting in Amsterdam downtown in 45mn from house door ( thanks Caroline for the tip).

We are used to rent houses for many years and this one is definitevely one of the best we experienced.

Wonderful stay in beautiful `Waterland`

  • 5 of 5

In the picturesque village Zuiderwoude, situated in the beautiful Waterland, we stayed in this lovely house. The house is well equipped with large bedrooms that have lovely views across the fields. The comfortable and cosy living room and furniture is perfect. We found the bathrooms, including showers and plumbing, to be nice and clean. Waking up in the morning and looking at ducks, sheep and herons just outside the window was charming and relaxing. The same when sitting in the sun in the beautiful garden on the waterfront, with a cold beer, after a long day of seeing the exiting city. It is perfect for those who like cycling and walking in the countryside, we used the bicycles provided and stayed out all day visiting different places each time on very safe and well-marked cycle routes. An ideal place to stay to visit all the charming towns in the Waterland region. We also took a day trip to Amsterdam parking near the ferry (7,80 a day ticket) to avoid driving in Amsterdam. For children there is a very nice park in Monnickendam, behind the dike, with little nice beaches for swimming and play football. Restaurants are nearby, we can recommend the pancake house in Broek in Waterland, and the fish restaurant in Monnickendam. We definitely will come back.

Wunderschönes Landhaus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und individuell eingerichtet, der Garten ausgesprochen gepflegt und farbenprächtig, wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Das Haus bietet zudem sehr viele Möglichkeiten, mit den Kanus und Fahrrädern kann man gut die tolle Umgebung erkunden, aber auch bei Regen ist das Haus groß genug, um sich zu erholen. Ein weiterer Vorteil ist, dass man sowohl mit dem eigenen Auto als auch mit dem Bus leicht und schnell ins Zentrum von Amsterdam kommt, eine uneingeschränkte Empfehlung!

Super! Sehr Zufrieden - Sehr Empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub in das Liebevoll hell eingerichtete Haus von Caroline und Jos in Zuiderwoude. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig, mit Blick auf eine grüne Weide, die bis zum Horizont reicht. Wir hatten ein Gefühl von Weite. Vom ersten Augenblick an fühlt man sich Zuhause. Hinter dem Haus ist ein bezaubernder Garten, der zu einem Kanal führt. Die Fahrt mit dem Ruderboot hat uns viel Spaß gemacht. Und wenn man mal Erholung von der Großstadt braucht, schwingt man sich auf die Räder und erkundet die wunderschöne Umgebung. Wir haben mit den Fahrrädern (in sehr gutem Zustand) einige Touren unternommen durch die Gegend entlang der Kanäle und den Feldern. Radfahren in dieser Gegend ist ein reines Vergnügen, nicht nur weil die Landschaft sehr flach ist, sondern auch weil die Holländer eine gute Regelung gefunden haben zwischen den verschiedenen Verkehrsteilnehmern. Interessante holländische Orte, Broek in Waterland, Marken, Monnickendam, Volendam, Edam mit Kassamärkten und viele gemütliche Cafés und Restaurants, sind gut zu erreichen.

In 15 Minuten mit dem Auto ist man an der Fähre, die nach Amsterdam zum Bahnhof fährt. Das bedeutet, dass wir nach einem eindrucksvollen Tag in Amsterdam in der Natur und der schönen Wohnung auftanken konnten. Mit unseren Kindern haben wir das Beste aus zwei Welten im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes erlebt, ein wunderschönes Paradies.

Wir würden gerne wiederkommen, herzlichen Dank!

Lovely house in charming little town

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six stayed in the lovely town of Zuiderwoude for a month in July 2014. The house of Caroline and Jos is absolutely perfect. Communication from the moment we found this property was prompt and clear. The house is very well equipped to enjoy your vacation with a beautiful garden, water access, boat and numerous bikes to tour the charming surroundings. Amsterdam is only a 30 minute bicycle ride away and the charming towns of Monnickendam and Volendam are even closer. The hosts stayed in touch trough e-mail during our stay and very helpful and friendly neighbors helped with anything we needed during our visit. Many thoughtful details (gifts, flowers, wine) were present at arrival and the house was meticulously clean! We can highly recommend this wonderful house with perfect hosts for your next vacation. We hope we can stay here again in years to come.

Een gezellige vakantie

  • 4 of 5

Ik heb samen met 5 Belgische vriendinnen een weekje gelogeerd in het prachtige huis van de fam. Van Elferen. Het is een sfeervolle woning van alle gemakken voorzien, we hebben genoten van de tuin en het prachtig uitzicht. Je kan er ook 5bij wat slechter weer je goed vermaken met boeken,spelletjes en TV.

We hebben elke dag een uitstap gemaakt naar Monnickendam, Volendam, Edam met zijn kaasmarkt, Enkhuizen met het zuiderzeemuseum, de Zaanse schans met de prachtige molens en we zijn zelfs met de fiets naar Amsterdam geweest, zo een 10 km daar vandaan. Kortom een mooie en rustige locatie met veel uitstapmogelijkheden een geslaagde vakantie die we niet snel zullen vergeten.
