Cozy cottage outside of Amsterdam

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here for five nights with my family this past July 2017 and overall we enjoyed our stay; however, prior to our arrival we did not realize quite how far we would be staying outside Amsterdam. The hosts were generous enough to allow us to use their bikes to which we rode 5 miles round trip each day to and from the bus stop and then had to take a 15 mintue bus ride each day we wanted to go site seeing in the city (paying 10 euros per person for a day bus pass). We went into the city four of the five days so this added additional cost to our trip that was unanticipated. My recommendation to those who plan to stay here in the future and want to go into the city of Amsterdam frequently would be to rent a car. The home is extremely quaint residing in a small village along the country side. Inside was clean; however, each on of my family members woke up each morning with countless bug bites which we assume were from the many spiders we found inside the house. I would also like to point out that the part of the house we stayed in was simply a section of the owners home. I was under the impression that it was an entirely separate home. Ultimately our stay was pleasant just wish we would have been given the foresight to plan accordingly for transportation.

séjour dépaysant et très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé nos 4 jours à découvrir Amsterdam et le Waterland. Dépaysement complet. Le romantisme de la capitale, le charme des maisons dans la campagne (polder), la nature, la faune et la flore, en font une région unique qu'il ne faut pas manquer.

Le logement de Caroline est très chaleureux et cosy. Tout y est fonctionnel. Et Caroline est une personne très sympathique. Nous garderons un bon souvenir de ce séjour. Et recommandons cette adresse.

Rundum zufrieden - tolle Lage, nette Gastgeber, gemütliches Ferienhaus!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sofort sehr wohlgefühlt, wozu der herzliche Empfang durch Caroline und Jos, die ländliche Idylle und die helle, saubere und gemütliche Atmosphäre des Ferienhauses beigetragen haben. Die Wohnung ist mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet - vom Teelicht bis zur farblich passenden Bettwäsche - und mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. Zudem ist die Lage ideal: In ca. 15 Minuten ist man mit dem Auto an der Werft, von wo aus man die kostenlose Fähre zum Amsterdamer Hauptbahnhof nehmen kann und gleich mitten in der Stadt ist. Und das Schöne daran: Bereits an der Werft, die schon an sich interessant ist und wo man Kaffee etc. trinken kann, beginnt das Urlaubsgefühl. Besonders schön fanden wir auch unsere Fahrradtour auf dem Deich entlang des Ijsselmeeres nach Amsterdam. Die Strecke ist bis auf ganz wenige, sehr kurze Abschnitte idyllisch und es macht Spaß, durch die Grachten zu radeln. Außerdem sehenswert und relativ schnell mit dem Rad zu erreichen sind Marken und Monnickendam - und es gibt natürlich noch viele weitere schöne Orte. Kurzum: Die Wohnung ist absolut empfehlenswert! Vielen lieben Dank, Caroline und Jos!

tra i villaggi e la citta'

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato in questo pacifico villaggio durante le vacanze natalizie.

Le lucine appese alle finestre delle casette dai tetti a punta, la nebbia che al mattino si alza sui campi vicini, le pecore al pascolo, le papere e i cigni che riposano tra le acque lente dei canali, Amsterdam a pochi chilometri di distanza. Tutto questo rende l'alloggio il posto perfetto per godere delle bellezze della città e degli scorci che Waterland offre rimanendo però in una dimensione ovattata e silenziosa.

L'appartamento è ben curato, molto pulito, caldo e dotato di ogni comfort necessario a famiglie anche con bambini. I proprietari sono gentili e sempre disponibili a consigliare eventuali accorgimenti per le varie escursioni. Inoltre per qualsiasi esigenza relativa alla struttura soddisfano nell'immediato anche le più piccole richieste. Vacanza ottima!!!
