Overview

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

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 city center. It's a beautiful, luxurious and cozy holiday house at the IJ lake, built by the owner, Richard.

It's a beautiful environment to spent your holidays with your family with children, or 2 couples.

In fall, X-mas time / winter, spring or summer season, there's always a good occasion. If you love the Dutch nature, the countryside and lots of different animals, you will feel happy here!

For food-lovers: In the full kitchen you can cook every meal, there is a supermarket nearby with very good local products.

Views over the IJ Lake (= IJsselmeer) can be constantly enjoyed a walk or bike trip. In the summer, you can ook take a swim!

Through all seasons, we have amazing 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 from us (€ 7.50 per day) or take a walk to the beautiful and famous old Dutch villages like Monnickendam, Marken, Alkmaar and Edam.

2. By car it is 10 minutes drive to the city-center, with a bike 25 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 fo r your car 150 meters walk from the house. The bus stop (monday-friday) is next to our house.

Kitchen and bath towels (2 p. P.), Toilet paper, soap, salt & pepper are all provided. Bed-linen are included usefull.

TV, DVD and very good and fast WiFi internet available. (Free of charge)

A memorable vacation

  • 4 of 5

Small but very cosy and clean vacation home with enough space for 2-4 people on the outskirts of Amsterdam in the Waterland. Beautiful scenery with lots of opportunities for adventures by bike or car. If you are looking for a place to find peace and quiet after a long day of exploring Amsterdam, this is the place! The hosts Richard and Ruth were most accommodating, always there when you needed them but never intrusive. They equipped us with lots of advice on what to see and do and even provided us with bikes to get to the tram station a few miles from the rental. Thank you, Richard and Ruth for a wonderful time in the Netherlands!!

A terrific holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Ruth's vacation home is the perfect place for a holiday visit. The home was clean and fitted with everything one might need for a stay. The back patio looking onto the nature preserve was lovely and a relaxing way to end a day of touring around Amsterdam. The city was easily accessible by train and the house was set in a cyclist's paradise. Richard and Ruth were extremely helpful and welcoming without being too much of a presence. If I were to come back to the Netherlands, I'd definitely book a stay here.

Un séjour magique

  • 5 of 5

Tout d'abord nous a vont apprécié la gentillesse, l'accueil et les conseils de Ruth et Richard.

La maison est située dans un petit village charmant a seulement quelques minutes d'Amsterdam mais également de lieux magnifiques comme Edam et Marken.

La décoration est très soignée et la maison très reposante, nous avons adoré être réveillés par les canards, cygnes et moutons.

Les jeux de société et le trampoline ont fait le plaisir des enfants.

Tout est réuni pour passer un séjour inoubliable et cela même en hiver sous le soleil, le vent, la neige...nous reviendrons avec plaisir avec quelques degrés de plus pour profiter de la petite terrasse au bord de l eau.

Nous recommanderons sans hésitation cette location à nos amis et notre famille.

Perfekt für Amsterdam - Urlaube

  • 5 of 5

Nettes,kleines Ferienhäuschen in schöner Umgebung mit ausreichend Platz für 4 Erwachsene,mit allem ausgestattet,gemütliche Betten ( auch für große Leute), auch die Treppe nach oben schafft man problemlos.

Ein kurzes Stück zum P&R mit dem Auto,dann in 6 min.direkt in die Innenstadt für einen sehr günstigen Tarif( tolles Angebot !),

Wanderungen in der Nähe des Hauses,einkaufen im Landmarkt,der alles bietet,was man braucht,

Ausflüge nach Marken und Edam : Dank der guten Tipps der freundlichen Vermieter alles möglich !

Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne mal wieder : einen Sommerabend auf der Terrasse mit diesen Blick genießen,muß herrlich sein
