Excellent!!!

5 of 5
We were a couple visiting Amsterdam but our preference was to stay outside the city. This was the perfect home... very nice and well maintained property in a nice quiet area. Just 10 minutes walk to the bus/train station and 20 minutes to Amsterdam on train. Kiki was very helpful and even arranged couple of bikes for free. It was a really good ride to the beach. Overall an excellent property!

The best place we could come to at the end of the day

We stayed at the farm for a week with our young kids and we all loved it. The apartment was spacious, comfortable and fully equipped and the owners were very friendly and helpful. The kids loved the trampoline, the bicycle, the little tractors, the bunnies and the play room and the farm has a big part in their good memories from the trip. On the more practical side, we made great use of the washing machine and dryer, and the fact that we had a supermarket a few minutes walk away. and of course - the green fields everywhere you look... Highly recommended
