It is well equipped, clean and Herman is very friendly and helpful. The location is great with food, drink and the market on your doorstep. We walked everywhere but there is a tram outside that takes 10 mins to Centraal station. Thanks again Herman for a great stay.

There is a newly renovated bathroom with a good shower, spacious living area and a spacious bedroom with plenty of cupboard space and very comfortable bed. There is a modern kitchen with all necessaryequipment. Although by a main road, the house is quiet. BBC1 and BBC2 are available. Internet was good. The owner has two Dutch style bicycles which we used to cycle to Amsterdam (about 30 mins and very safe), and into the extensive woods behind the property where there are lakes and places of interest to see. Bus stops are a few metres away. The owner left useful information for local shops, buses etc. (There's an Aldi 10 mins walk away), and supplied some food basics, which was a nice touch. All queries were quickly responded to.
