Very welcoming home owners. Lovely clean property
Very well equipped good location. The home Ower was was helpful. Very good WiFi which was a must as we have a teenager. The property had everything we could ask for.
Amazing hosts, amazing stay!
We spent a week in Eric and Marjam's rental lodging. They are very warm, friendly and generous people. We have had many great hosts through VRBO but they exceeded all our expectations!
The condo is very comfortable with bus service to Amsterdam close and efficient. The town of Pumerend has everything you need and all is close enough to walk.
We would highly recommend this lodging and these warm and welcoming hosts. We hope we are able to return in the future.

We had such a lovely stay
The property was better than described. Great welcome from Eric and Marjan. Generous welcome pack including bottle of wine. Full set of towels provided. Secure cycle storage space. Easy cycling distance to lots of places. We would happily stay here again if we needed to be in this area.
Second Time Around
This is the second time we stayed in the rental, the first time being in June 2012. The owners greeted us like long-lost friends when we arrived. All the positive reviews on this site are well-deserved. One basically rents a whole house with two bedrooms and an attic with an extra bed. When traveling it is nice to stay in a real house allowing you to prepare your own meals and eat in the garden when weather permits. The owners live next door and speak excellent English. Although Purmerend might seem a ways from Amsterdam, it is not, and even though we had a car, we preferred using the bus, avoiding having to drive into the city. The bus stop is right by the house, the bus runs every half hour and gets you to Amsterdam's Central Station within half an hour. Purmerend is a quiet town and a great springboard for treks by car or bicycle to stunning countryside and 17th century villages, places one might never see were one to stay in Amsterdam itself. There is a reason why so many painters came from this area. The owners have lots of good suggestions for day trips and will go out of their way to make it happen. Supermarkets, pharmacies and other stores are an easy walk from the house and the town itself has decent and fun restaurants. When next we visit Amsterdam we will definitely contact the owners of the property again.
An ideal base
We had a lovely 2 weeks in Purmerend and would highly recommend this house. First of all, Eric and Marjan are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Booking was very easy and fuss-free. The accommodation was very clean, tidy as expected and the house is well equipped . The owners speak English and French fluently (as the rest of Holland it seems) so communication is easy ! They were always here to help. A little welcome pack was even waiting for us ! Cycling everywhere was one of the highlights for us. It is very safe (we had 3 children but the cycling lanes are out of this world). There is a lot to do and visit around. Amsterdam is easy to access so are the surrounding villages. Eric and Marjan gave us good tips and information about visits, directions and facilities. There is also a fantastic swimming pool in Purmerend.
We would recommend this accommodation to families , friends or anybody who would like to experience a bit of Dutch life and scenery and visit the capital city.
Only suggestion : before travelling to Holland, make sure you check the road code and regulations. Bikes have priority most of the time everywhere and it is expected of cars to stop !
Purmerend is a town of 80,000 inhabitants, only 18 kilometers north of Amsterdam, excellent public transportation, has a pleasant city center with old buildings, wide choice of restaurants, and a variety of shops. Quiet residential area with many facilities, free parking, public transport on the corner of the street, railway station (8 minutes walk) near several shopping for your groceries. The area invites for bicycle tours to the Beemster, Edam-Volendam, Monnickendam and Waterland, which are also easily accessible by car. For city visit to Amsterdam we recommend to use public transport and to give you all the necessary explanations.
