Great location and great view of the waterlands

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts were great and really helpful. Getting to Amsterdam is easy on the bus and we never waited more than a few minutes, there or back, the bus drops you at the central station, you can down load the GBV app which was really helpful for travel connections. For non Dutch folks reading this you can only add funds to the travel clip cards that Lia and George can lend you in Amsterdam using chip and pin, but once you get the hang of it it is easy and under 3 euros each way. There is lots to do in the area we went to Marken and Volendam which are both very near and are historic fishing villages, where they also make clogs at Markam and Cheese at Volendam. Zaanse Schans was great about industry and history where you can see loads of windmills. Its free to look around but you pay if you go into any of the museums, this is also quite near. Kkeukenhof gardens its a 40 min drive but with a sat nav quite straight forward and whilst only open for 8 weeks a year is fantastic especially the orchids. Also we went to the Zuiderzee museum further afield but if you want to see historic dutch buildings its the place to go. Also we went to Haarlem to see the Ten Boom 'hiding place' which was very moving, and the big church where Frans Hals is buried. There are loads of local safe cycle ways and we would have like to use the bikes more but ran out of time. We do feel that there is more to do but maybe for another visit, a big thanks to our hosts.

A perfect retreat to explore Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

This place is so charming, George and Lia are sweet and helpful, and it was the perfect place for me to rest each evening after exploring the city. The walk through the village to the bus stop each day was a highlight, as was my day trip to nearby Edam. I really hope to visit again soon. Thank you!

Lovely cottage in a lovely town!

  • 5 of 5

Lia and George are fabulous hosts, warm, friendly, welcoming, and ever so helpful! The cottage was just as the photos depict, and it offered every comfort. We enjoyed watching the sheep, horses and ducks along the canal. This was an excellent spot to visit Amsterdam and the Netherlands countryside as bus transportation was easy to use, frequent and on time. What a great place?

A slice of heaven...

  • 5 of 5

Do yourself a massive favour and stay here. This cottage is adorable and so cozy. George and Lia are absolutely lovely and have outfitted the cottage with everything you could possibly need. The bed is so comfortable too! Honestly, we could have moved in and abandoned our lives back home. We loved the morning views of the sheep and ducks...

Broek in Waterland is really easy to get to and the transit system to visit other towns (or Amsterdam) is incredible user-friendly. We'll be back!!!

Lia the host was there to meet us late in the evening, and on arrival made us feel very welcome. We loved the location, easy travel to and from city. We would recommend to anyone and would love to visit again. We were able to use the canoe and spend a birthday evening on the water watching the sunset....literally priceless!! Thank you lia and George, hopefully see you again!

City Escape

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect escape from the hustle of Amsterdam. The cottage is a 5 min walk from the bus, and it is just over 10 minutes to get into the city. Broek on Waterland was central to the picturesque villages of Edam, Volendam and Marken. The location is fantastic.

The cottage is exactly as described. It is spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. A coffee on the verandah watching the sun rise was the best start to the day!

The hosts, Lia and George are warm and welcoming. Communication was always prompt and easy, and Lia ensures her guests have a wonderful time with thoughtful touches that make travelling so much easier.

This was by far our best stay in Europe, and I look forward to returning again one day.
