Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed for 9 days for a vacation.

The house is styled with good taste and it had everything we needed.

The view is out of this world, the balcony is right on the canal.

The owners were kind and helpful.

Transportation is really good, almost every number would take you to city center/station.

I recommend this place to anyone Who want peace and quiet.

Great place to stay and explore the North Netherlands area.

  • 5 of 5

This small cottage was just perfect for us. It was just as advertised, clean, neat, and cozy. We wanted to be able to prepare breakfast and dinner in the cottage and be free all day to visit the surrounding area. This cottage, right on a canal, worked nicely. It was fun to watch the boats cruise by and it gave us a quiet place to relax but was close to everything. There was enough room in the living area to be relax and the bed was very comfortable. Lia and George were very helpful. They had literature available for things to see and do and they were very happy to give us specific information when we needed it. We enjoyed everything about our visit.

A wonderful experience in north Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

We had the most memorable time staying in Broek in Waterland. Both George and Lia are amazing people that make you feel right at home. The view out the window is beautiful and so relaxing. We could have stayed longer and would love to come back to this magical place. The bus to and from downtown Amsterdam is only about 15 minutes and it leaves right on time every 5 minutes. We would definitely recommend this lovely place to anyone who wants a "real" experience and not just a touristy one.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The location is ideal, with accessible public transportation to Amsterdam while being in the midst of a quiet charming town. The cottage is situated on a canal with a country view. Lia and George are helpful

and kind hosts. We especially enjoyed the cycling on the extensive bike paths spread throughout the area. We would highly recommend this property.

Lovely cottage on the canal

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely little cottage just 10 minutes away from Amsterdam city.

I stayed at Lia's cottage for two nights only and absolutely enjoyed it. Wish I would stay for longer.

The little village is so peaceful and beautiful and is only 10 minutes away from the busy and diverse Amsterdam. The bus service is great and runs til late hours.

Photos don't do the justice for the place. Its much more nicer when you are actually there, sitting on the porch, sipping tea and looking at the fields across the canal.

The cottage itself has everything you might need, spotless clean and cousy.

The booking process was very easy and I got the response very quickly. Lia met me at the bus stop when I arrived and took me to the cottage.

I definitely would recommend this place if you are visiting Amsterdam and prefer a quieter place to stay.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt

  • 5 of 5

Die Unterkunft ist liebevoll und stilvoll eingerichtet. Man hat viel Platz und es war super sauber. Der Ausblick vom Wohnzimmer und von der Terrasse ist sagenhaft schön, die Umgebung ist idyllisch und sehr ruhig.

Die Vermieter sind sehr sympathisch, aufgeschlossen und stets hilfsbereit (sie boten uns z.B. an, uns zum Supermarkt zu fahren. Mit den geliehenen Fahrrädern schafften wir das dann aber auch allein:-).

Allgemein lässt sich sagen: Die Busse nach Amsterdam fahren alle 10 Minuten, aber die Fahrtkosten sind sehr hoch (5Euro pro Fahrt)! Im Cottage lagen zwei Chipkarten für den öffentlichen Verkehr bereit, auf die Geld geladen werden kann um Bus und Tram zu benutzen. Mit diesen Chipkarten fuhren wir billiger (ca. 2,50Euro)! Es ist vorteilhaft sich vor der Reise darüber zu informieren.
