Beautiful place to stay at. If you want to explore Amsterdam but still prefer peace and quiet, this is a perfect place. It is very well connected to the centre of the city. The house had everything we needed, and the host was very helpful as well. I would highly recommend this property for Amsterdam holiday.

Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

In a nutshell, if you are driving to Amsterdam and want to be close in but feel like you are far from the noise of the city, nothing beats this place! You start your day with an easy drive to a park and ride lot where you are wisked into charming Amsterdam. In just 15 minutes, you travel from the lot where you can park your car for free all day and night to Centraal Station! Then at the end of your busy day in Amsterdam, you get to watch the sunset on your own private deck overlooking a pasture where you can expect occasional visits from all manner of birds and even cows. Durgerdam itself is very picturesque and merits a stroll along the waterfront. And the apartment was super clean and very comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen, spacious bath, and comfortable beds. Our family of two adults, 17 year old son, and 11 year old daughter simply loved it! And Anneke was wonderful. She was even kind enough to mail me a jacket I had forgotten in the apartment. There is no doubt in my mind that we look her up the next time we are in Amsterdam and now wish we had decided to stay there longer when we forst planned our trip. Thank you, Anneke!

Beautiful Sweet Little Place

  • 5 of 5

The setting was perfect- away from the fast city pace of Amsterdam,

but close enough to access Amsterdam easily via public transportation or bikes - we used them every day. The description describes the cottage well, it was very clean, cozy and had everything and more that we needed ( 2 bikes included) . "Customer Service" was exceptional, thanks to the warmth and friendliness of the owner, as well as all other dutch people we met - felt we could ask for anything we needed. Information ( maps etc.) was provided for the local area as well as for other parts of Holland. We would highly recommend this property - it even had a protected "bird" area out the front window. Really cute town!

'Quaint' Cottage in the Country

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely 'quaint' cottage for a fortnight, and had two full weeks of total relaxation, peace and quiet.

The owner was there when we arrived, greeting us with a warm Dutch welcome. Nothing was too much trouble throughout our stay, even when the kids forgot the key, she was more than happy to give them the spare!

The cottage itself is compact, although it comfortably accommodated us as a family of four.

It was clean and warm, with everything provided, including fresh linen & towels. All of which added to the 'home from home' feel.

We felt right at home sitting outside looking over the fields with the ongoing wildlife.

The cottage is around a 20 minute cycle ride to Amsterdam central, two bicycles are provided by the owner, which was perfect.

The cottage is also situated a few minutes drive from the major highway, (although you don't see or hear it), and we found it very easy to catch trams/buses just down the road.

There is a lovely organic supermarket nearby, selling excellent local fresh produce, (fruit, meat and bread!) perfect for eating in or small snacks.

We highly reccommend this cottage to anyone that enjoys a rural location, with the added bonus of being only a few miles away from city life.

We will definatley be returning to this hidden treasure!

Little Gem

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I stayed here for a week and tho the apartment was small It was clean and tidy and had all the things for the outdoor person, Bikes, Fishing, Walking, Birdwatching. The owner of this apartment was very nice and helpful and could not do enough for us even washing our clothes (No Washing Machine in apartment) All in all I would go back to Durgerdam and stay here in a heartbeat.

Un super séjour à Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Un joli cottage à l'extérieur d'Amsterdam, dans un village qui borde le front de mer. Pour autant, il est tout proche des transports en commun (compter 5 mn de voiture + le temps de se garer et récupérer des tickets et 10 mn de tram - dont les fréquences sont très régulières). Anneke nous a très gentiment accueillis et donné beaucoup de précieux conseils. Pour 4, le gîte était parfait, mignon, très bien équipé, bien chauffé et le "Landsmarket" tout près permet de faire le plein de bons produits locaux.
