Overview

About the property

Freestanding with own kitchen, bathroom, living room, amazing views

Freestanding cottage with own bathroom, kitchenette, living area and upstairs bedroom with super comfortable double bed. We have a baby cot available for a child up to 2.5 years. 2 bikes are included in the price!

The cottage is on the same grounds as our house, surrounded by our large beautiful garden, with open view over the countryside and next to the canal That leads straight into Amsterdam! We live in a perfect place just 10 minutes from Amsterdam and 15 minutes from lovely trips to Volendam or Marken and the rest of Waterland.

So it's the best of both worlds: close to the city and still you're in a nice and quiet area with lovely views over typical dutch landscape with meadows and grazing cows.

We have 2 bikes available included in the price for biking trips around Waterland, with it's cute historic villages, or you can rent a boat and explore this area from the water or just navigate your way into Amsterdam for a trip to the Van Gogh museum, Anne Frank house or see stunning new architecture on the waterfront of the IJ.

Coffee and tea are always available, as well as a few basics to get you started.

Nearby is / are a pancake restaurant, tea garden, organic farms to visit, dress yourself up in Volendam like a true fishermen or find yourself in Marken, a village like it was 100 years ago where you can watch How They carve wooden shoes or just enjoy the Amsterdam museums, restaurants and nightlife! Also Zaanse Schans with its old windmills is well worth a visit.

There are lots of things to do and we would Gladly help you with tips, maps and planning.

Who are we? We are Bas & Margot, our children Bink and Pippa, and our cat Mimoun. Up till 7 years ago we lived in the center of Amsterdam, our beloved city. But Because we wanted more view and a bit of quiet, we moved here ... and have not regret it since!

Parking is free in front of our house and there is public transport 4 minutes from our house, it takes you into the city in only 10 minutes.

Wonderful location, beautiful scenery, and delightful hosts

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my two children (ages 4 and 2), and we loved it! The colors inside are bright and cheery, the views out the windows so lovely, and we really enjoyed walking the canal, which was full of ducklings while we were there.

It is very easy to get into Amsterdam Centraal, and if I ever go back to Amsterdam I would stay here again in a heartbeat, I highly recommend staying here!

Great place, quiet, in the county but easy to get to the city

  • 4 of 5

Cute, tiny cottage, Margot the owner was nice and very helpful. Great location along a pretty canal and it comes with bikes to use. Only a kilometer or so from an adorable little town with a historic restaurant that serves over 40 kinds of pancakes. (They are more like crepes.) We also found a one room local grocer that had everything we wanted including homemade salads and baked goods. Best chocolate truffles we have ever had!

Stairs to the loft sleeping area are steep, so may be problematic for anyone with mobility issues.

Close in rural charm!

  • 4 of 5

Margo, Bas and the kids were a delightful bunch. The little cottage is comfortable and toasty on a cold day. They were very helpful with all of my needs and questions. It's a fairly rural setting, but the bus stop to Amsterdam is a quick 2-3 minute bike ride and ten minutes to the Central Station. If you want to eat somewhere close the Drie Noten bar and restaurant are just a short bike ride down the road. It was nice to come away from the city and get some small town fun in too. You have Marken, Edam, and Volendam all within a close bus or ferry ride. It's a small space but comfortable. Thanks Margo and Bas!

Perfect countryside cottage with lovely hosts and easy access to the city

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here! You are in the country side surrounded by beautiful scenery and wildlife yet so close to Amsterdam centre due to the brilliant public transport system. Margot was the perfect host, left us to it but was there whenever we needed her. The only down side was we only stayed two nights!! We would love to come back for longer another time! Can't recommend this place enough. Thank you again, Beth and Jay x

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Margot was the perfect host alongside the wonderful, homely cottage which is kept immaculately clean and tidy. Modern interior with all necessitates included, the bikes and travel cards were a great added bonus and made our trip 100x easier and cheaper, would recommend to anyone.

Pretty cottage with lovely hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage itself was kept amazingly and was exactly what we were looking for our break away! The host Margot was lovely and welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. The location of the property is secluded but is only a short walk away from the bus station which took us right into the centre of Amsterdam! The surroundings are also very tranquil and relaxing. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Amsterdam!
