I am born&grown, educated in Amsterdam, but lived and worked for years in tropical areas as a doctor (clinical and public health). My wife Carla works for the Municipality of Amsterdam. We love to make long bicycle tours in Holland and abroad. We are active in a local group of climate activists for CO2 reduction among citizens.

Anrik Engelhard purchased this cabin in 2001

Carla became 'claustrophic' in our previous 7 th floor apartment. To our surprise we ended up in Amsterdam North where nature is in the backyard....We were very lucky to find this place and never take it for granted.

After an exiting day in town get rid of the noise, the dust. Park your car secure in front of the house at no cost. Even better, leave your car next day; take our (free!) bicycles. After 20 minutes you are in town after enjoying the view from the (free/7x24) ferry. Even taxi drivers say: 'Wow, I didn't know we have places like this in Mokum' !! (Amsterdam).

excellent! will come back!

  • 5 out of 5
Beautiful house in a beautiful place. We stayed for three days in April and regretted that we could not stay longer. Very cozy and clean house with everything you might need inside. We were greeted by Anrik and his wife who offered fruits, wine and a local beer. Travel to the centre of Amsterdam is very easy and enjoyable. Really nice ride on a bike and 5 min by free ferry or 20 min walk to a tram and 7 min on a tram. As a result-free parking, free bike and free travel (if you choose the first option). Max 30 min to central station. 10 min walk from the house is a local supermarket with very good quality local food and a nice cafe were you can get freshly made breakfast. Anrik was very helpful in supplying us with travel guides, maps and explaining in detail were to go and what to see. We are now planning to come back on a cycling trip for a week. Highly recommended!

What a fabulous place!!

  • 5 out of 5
We absolutely loved our time at Bed and Bike Amsterdam. It is in a beautiful quiet location, yet only half an hour to get right to the heart of the city centre by bike and ferry. Carla and Anrik were the perfect hosts, always on hand to give useful advice and swap stories at the end or start of the day.
The cottage is beautiful, very clean, stylish and well equipped.
If you are thinking of booking Bed and Bike Amsterdam, don't hesitate another minute- just do it!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Nicola, thanks of course for your enthusiasm and the effords you took. Carla and I, after 14 years, never take this place for granted. We enjoy to live here and realize it is a privilage. The comments of guests like you encourage us to help preserve the values of Schellingwoude village. The Garden House is open for people like you, in addition, it is nice work, we meet fantastic people and get inspired.

Quiet and Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for the first three nights of our European honeymoon, and I wish we could have stayed longer. We were greeted warmly with smiles and a freshly baked Dutch apple pie! Henrick's directions for finding the place were perfect, and - while it did take a train-to-bus transfer on public transit - we found the property with little issue. For the duration of the stay, we used the bikes provided for smooth and easy transport to town...and almost felt like we fit in with the locals. The bikes were not only in great shape and completely at our disposal, but Henrick personally fit the bikes to our comfort.

As for the property, things were exactly as shown and, honestly, surpassed our expectations. We enjoyed the extreme privacy of our own space, a fully stocked kitchen and an adequate and clean bathroom. The entire property had a new and crisp feeling. The grounds were immaculately maintained, as well. We enjoyed the garden space and serenity of the canal which borders the backyard.

Henrick was an eager host and helpfully provided maps, ideas and local knowledge that was much appreciated. Due to the short nature of our stay, we did not explore the area surrounding his property much in favor of spending our time in the city. That said, the charm of this place is in its country feel, while only being a manageable and enjoyable 25 minutes bike ride from the city.

If you are considering booking this place - do it! We had a wonderful stay here.

Unique Amsterdam Experience

  • 5 out of 5
This property is outside the city centre & provides a quiet sanctuary to come home to on your vacation. The cottage is nicely decorated with attention to detail, thoughtful touches like good coffee & tea, spices & olive oil if you want to cook, lovely dishes to serve in! Great market down the road for serious foodies, bikes available & tram into the city core. Wonderful hosts concerned on a warm spell that we had lighter sheets for sleeping & advice for attractions when we were travelling outside the city core. The pleasure of starting our day sitting outside with our coffee in the beautiful gardens made this a special experience!

Comfortable, Clean, Convenient

  • 5 out of 5
The cottage is both clean and comfortable, and the location is perfect: far enough from Amsterdam city center to be quiet and rural, but close enough to be quite convenient. The neighborhood is charming and includes a local organic market with a wonderful selection of fruits, vegetables, meat, cheese, bread, and household items. Having a bicycle is truly wonderful and allows guests to enjoy Holland the way the locals do - on two wheels! You can take a short 15-minute ride to a free ferry that takes you directly to Central Station in Amsterdam's center, or you can ride into the country and explore charming Dutch villages. The hosts are incredibly helpful and provide maps, brochures, and travel guides to assist you in planning your vacation. Preparing your own meals is easy in the fully stocked kitchen, and you can enjoy your meals on a private outdoor patio. The bed is comfortable, and the quiet neighborhood allows for a great night's sleep. The cottage exceeded my expectations, and I look forward to a return visit.

Perfect stay

  • 5 out of 5
We had a perfect stay in this comfortable 'garden house'.
It was the midst of winter but cozy and warm. The location is just magic, close to the city center but quiet and relaxing. The owners are friendly and helpful.
The house is small but comfortable. The kitchen modern and of good quality. The bedroom upstairs contains a double and a single bed and there was enough space to put up a baby travel bed. There is a comfortable private bathroom. We stayed with two adults and our 14 months old son. Being Dutch expats, originally from Amsterdam, we rented the house to be back 'home' and this is exactly how we felt during our stay. Even though we come from Amsterdam, we were still surprised by this beautiful location. Definitely recommendable!

The region around the Garden House is typically Dutch: history of our struggle against the sea; where Rembrandt painted; historical and contemporary architecture; tour along the fishermans villages along the IJsselmeer (Volendam, Edam, Marken) Open air museum Zaanse Schans. And... van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, Eye (film museum), and just walk along the canals.... Amsterdam is great, though small: everything within easy reach!

Notes:
The Garden House is Eco-built, very well insulated (cool in summer!), central heating (floor), rainwater reuse system (toilet). Another room in the house is (though not very frequently) used as office for an environmental foundation. By no way this will limit your privacy. No traffic noise day and night; village life, but still close to centre of town. Free parking saves you €25 per day at least.
