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

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

A charming stone & 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.

In the low season, from 2nd of November 2014 till 31 january 2015 we offer you a 'sale' price (X-mas and Sylvester are already booked)

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

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 provide a barbeque and a small terracotta chimney fire place 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 Attraction)

2 By car it is 10 minutes drive to the city-center, with a bicycle 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 free car park 150 meters walk from the house.

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

Charmantes, kleines Ferienhaus

  • 5 out 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 out 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 out 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 out 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.

Near town yet surrounded by nature

  • 5 out of 5
We were two Danish couple visiting Amsterdam and the areas around. We found this small house beautiful placed in Durgerdam just outside Amsterdam.

Starting with the house. The comfort of the house, the bed, living room furniture, and heating were perfect. We found the bathrooms, including showers and plumbing, to be nice and clean. Close to town yet surrounded by nature. Waking up in the morning and looking at ducks, coots and herons just outside the window was nice and relaxing. The same when sitting in the sun at the terrace after a long day of seeing the city.

Nearby there was a supermarket with local produced food. Bakery, cheeses, meats, vegetables and a lot of other local products with a taste you don’t find in an ordinary supermarket.

Getting into the city was quick and easy. Drive 2 km to the Park & Ride (P+R) which is the smartest and cheapest way to go into Amsterdam’s city. The system can be a little tricky, but we had a landlord with great hospitality. The first time he drove with us and showed the system. If you want to see other areas than Amsterdam, it is easy to get around because you are not stuck in the traffic.

Our hosts were very kind and helpful. We appreciated their assistance just as much as the rental itself. All in all, the location and house were truly perfect. We had no issues with this house. We would absolutely stay here again and hope to do so in the future. We highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a great place to stay in a fantastic location.

PARFAIT ! WONDERFUL !

  • 5 out of 5
Nous sommes vraiment ravis d'avoir louer cette maison. Elle est parfaitement bien située, propre, tranquille, bien équipée.
Le propriétaire Richard est très sympathique et reste à disposition pour tout renseignement. Son épouse Ruth est adorable aussi.
Un point très important, vous pouvez laisser votre voiture sur un parking et prendre le tramway pour la modique somme de 6 € pour vous rendre dans le centre d'Amsterdam en quelques minutes.
Nous y retournerons et nous conseillerons cette jolie demeure et ses habitants.
Thank you for all Richard and Ruth !
