Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in North Amsterdam
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.
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 three 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!
