Lovely Country Home Close to Sites

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely country home. It is very close to the sites in Amsterdam, as well as the charming local villages. The home is very clean and was the perfect size for our extended family of 10. We enjoyed the peaceful setting that this property provides. The description of the property was accurate and above our expectations. The property owners are a very nice couple and are very helpful in making suggestions for touring the area. The restaurants at nearby Monnickendam were excellent. We ate at a local steakhouse and the ice cream shop just across the street from the restaurant. The local business owners as well as the property owners were all very gracious and patient with the language barrier, as we only speak English. We would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our room was really clean and nice. It was big enough for 3 people and it even had a mini fridge. The breakfast was really good, better than in some cheap hotels we have visited. The bus stop was really close and it takes about 30 to drive to city center. Keep in mind that the one way bus ticket costs 5 euros.

Schöne Tage bei Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Die Beschreibung hatte nicht zuviel versprochen. Die Unterkunft freundlich, sehr sauber, ausgesprochen nette und kompetente Gastgeber, ein Superfrühstück, die Aussicht aus dem Zimmer unbeschreiblich schön. Morgens den Sonnenaufgang und abends den Sonnenuntergang zu beobachten ist schon selten. Amsterdam nicht weit und durch P&R unkompliziert und billig zu erreichen. Wir empfehlen die Unterkunft weiter und werden bestimmt wiederkommen.

Wie Zuhause!

  • 5 of 5

Die phantastische Lage, etwas abgelegen und direkt am Deich und Schafswiesen sowie das wunderschön ausgebaute Pumpenwärterhaus (Bild) hatten es uns angetan - und wir wurden nicht enttäuscht.

Das freundliche und stets präsente Vermieterehepaar hatte immer Tips und Hinweise bereit. Das opulente Frühstück im gediegenen Wohnzimmer und die wunderbaren Stunden und Gespräche im Garten oder der Terrasse bei malerischen Sonnenuntergängen werden uns lange in Erinnerung bleiben. Ob Museumsbesichtigungen in Amsterdam, Radtour um die Gouwsee, Käsemarkt in Alkmaar, Baden in der Nordsee bei Bergen oder ein Segeltörn im Markermeer von Monickedam aus - alles Klasse und in maximal einer dreiviertel Stunde zu erreichen.

Hoffen wir dass das Paradies noch lange uns Gästen erhalten bleiben kann!

Nordholland erkunden und Ruhe finden

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit! Die Unterkunft liegt wunderbar ruhig unmittelbar am Deich am Markermeer. Die Zimmer sind gemütlich und sauber. Das Frühstück im Wohnzimmer der Gastgeber ist großartig! Unmittelbar vor dem Tor fährt ein Bus zwei Mal in der Stunde nach Amsterdam (Hbf), so kann man ganz entspannt Amsterdam erkunden. Einen kleinen Spaziergang weit entfernt befindet sich Monnickendam mit gemütlichen Restaurants. Im Umkreis findet man viele abwechslungsreiche Ausflugsziele. Die sehr netten Gastgeber stehen bei der Auswahl mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Die Tipps sind Gold wert! Wir können die Unterkunft wärmstens empfehlen und werden selbst wieder kommen.

Wir bedanken uns gerne noch einmal auf diesem Weg für die Herzlichkeit der Gastgeber!
