Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in North Amsterdam

Beautiful and cozy family house at the IJ lake and near Amsterdam City

A charming stone and wood cottage house in a quiet and beautiful street (dike) at Amsterdam's picturesque suburb 'Durgerdam', just a mile away from Amsterdam's old city center. It's a beautiful, luxurious and cozy family house at the IJ lake, built by the owner, Richard.

Views over the IJ Lake (= IJsselmeer) can be constantly enjoyed a walk and in summer you can take a swim and enjoy any kind of watersports.

Through all seasons one can enjoy the scenic countryside views by foot or bike. Every evening we have fabulous sunrises and sunsets, see pictures!

The house is nicely furnished with all modern comforts, underfloor heating and good clean beds.

You can relax on the terrace in the private garden at the back of the house. Sit under the pear tree with a view over the countryside. We providence a barbeque and a small terracotta chimney fireplace for a nice romantic evening. For the children we have a large trampoline.

Durgerdam is just a few minutes drive away from the tram to the vivid center of Amsterdam.

Tips:

1. You can rent a bike or take a walk to the beautiful and famous old Dutch villages like Monnickendam, Marken, Volendam and Edam. (National tourist Attractions)

2. By car it is 10 minutes drive to the city-center, with a bike 20 minutes, or 15 minutes by ferry to Central Station directly and free of charge. We can always advice you the best route for your day trips.

There is a large free car parking space 150 meters walk from the house.

2 Towels p. p., toilet paper, soap, salt & pepper are all provided.

TV, DVD and very good & fast WiFi internet available. (Also free)

Sehr gemütliches Ferienhaus in toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Dieses wunderbare gemütliche Ferienhaus hat uns ein paar herrlich entspannte Urlaubstage in Amsterdam geschenkt. Wir kommen immer wieder SEHR gerne hierher zurück! Auch ohne Auto haben wir alles ohne Probleme erreichen können dank der Fahrräder direkt beim Haus und nicht zuletzt wegen des hilfsbereiten Abholservice durch Richard. Wir fanden es super!! Danke Richard und Ruth für alles!

Heerlijk rustig huisje op unieke locatie

  • 5 of 5

Eind november heb ik een lang weekend genoten van dit heerlijke huisje op een prachtige plek.

Het huisje is sfeervol ingericht en van alle gemakken voorzien. Heerlijke douche, goede bedden, veel serviesgoed, fijne tafel om aan te eten of een spelletje te doen en een grote bank. Alles zo gekozen dat je je er direct thuis voelt.

De plek waar het huisje ligt, maakt het verblijf nog meer bijzonder. Door twee openslaande deuren kijk je uit over de weilanden met in de verte de kerktoren van Ransdorp. Met de fiets of wandelend ontdek je het gebied rondom Broek in Waterland. Uiteraard ben je ook zo - met de pont over Het IJ - in Amsterdam. Zelf ben ik via Oostzaan, Landsmeer, Westzaan, Zaanstad en Spaarndam naar Haarlem gefietst. Met de trein weer terug richting Amsterdam en vanaf Centraal Station gefietst naar Durgerdam. Een geweldige dagtocht.

Een uitgebreide, overdekte markt met restaurant heeft heerlijke (streek)producten en gerechten en ligt op ongeveer 15 minuten lopen. Een fijne plek voor een lekkere kop koffie, maar zeker ook voor vers brood en beleg.

De gastvrijheid van de verhuurders maakt het verblijf compleet. Goed bereikbaar, hartelijk ontvangst en open voor suggesties.

Charmantes, kleines Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Ich und meine Freundin (21 J.) verbrachten zwei wunderbare Wochen in diesem kleinen Ferienhaus, das alles bietet, was man für einen entspannten Urlaub zu Zweit braucht. Richard hat das Häuschen mit seinen eigenen Händen erbaut. Mit viel Liebe zum Detail und einer geordneten Raumorganisation lässt es sich gut darin leben. Hiermit möchte ich auch noch einmal ein grosses Danke an Dich, Richard, für deine Gastfreundschaft ausrichten! Uns hat es sehr gefallen.

Klein und Gemütlich

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben das Häuschen so vorgefunden wie wir uns das vorgestellt haben. Hinterm Deich gemütlich gelegen, mit Ausblick auf Kanal, Entenfamilie, Wiesen und Schafe-Naturidylle pur. Haben auch gleich das Aztekenfeuer und den Grill eingeweiht. Im Häuschen ist alles was man braucht. Den Treppenauf- und abstieg muß man etwas üben, sonst ist alles super gewesen, inclusive Trampolinspringen. Der Wein war sehr lecker, der auf dem Tisch für uns bereid stand.

Amsterdam und auch viele Tourismusziele sind locker mit dem Fahrrad zu erreichen, wir vermissen jetzt schon wieder die tollen Fahrradwege.

Richard und Ruth sind empfehlendswerte, hilfsbereite Gastgeber

nochmals vielen Dank.

Wundabares Huas, nette Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir bedanken und sehr! Alles war prima! Das Haus ist schön, gemütlich, warm und hat tollen Ausblick auf Wasser! Den Preis haben wir auch günstig gefunden. Dort gibt es Alles, was man zum Leben braucht. Die Lage ist sehr praktisch, gleichzeitig in der Natur und in der Nahe von dem Stadtzentrum. Ruth und Richard waren super nett! Richard hat uns den Weg zum Parkplatz gezeigt, dort kann man sehr günstig ein Auto stehen lassen und einen gemeinsamen Ticket für Parking und Straßenbahn kaufen. Da einer von uns nach den „Amsterdamer Spezialitäten “ sich schlecht gefühlt hatte, haben uns Ruth und Richard sehr damit geholfen. Also das Haus können wir unbedingt weiter empfehlen, es lohnt sich!

Jolie maison pour une petite famille

  • 5 of 5

Gîte agréable et calme. Il est fonctionnel pour une famille de 4 personnes (2 adultes et 2 enfants). L'environnement est superbe.

L'accueil est sympa par les 2 propriétaires et ils vous donnent des informations sur Amsterdam.

La capitale est à quelques minutes du gîte et facile d'accès grâce au parking P+R.

Nous reviendrons et recommandons cette location.
